Comment:
I am truly disappointed DO NOT buy this is designed poorly or should I say Pourly designed, from day one it has leaked while pouring the brewed coffee. I thought I would wait it out and see if the rubber seal needed to adjust to some level of usage before it started to work properly, but alas it NEVER came around to NOT leaking. Kick the engineers in the but for designing this piece of this, especially at this price point, Dissapointing!!!Shame on you Panasonic...this should not be in the market place!

I bought this pot for work. I like that there is no heating element for the pot (I can't forget to turn it off). But the Carafe didn't keep the coffee hot. It was also leaking everywhere while it brewed. I figured out it was broken and called Panasonic. They made ME pay to return it. I did so and then they lost the copy of the receipt. I had to email the receipt 3 times and they still never received it. I called them 4 times and their auto assistant will drive you almost postal. Finally, after a month, they called this morning to tell me they are refunding my money (not my postal fees). I think that's for the best. Oh, it did brew a nice pot of coffee.
How long have you owned it:
One-to-three months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
