Comment:
I have one at home and there is anoother at my office. Both of them leak onto the counter and into the drip tray. The tray has overflowed on occasion. The hole where the coffee dispenses gets stuck occasionally also, so make sure when you clean it you run water all the way through the system.

No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
I have owned two now... Neither work after a year. Never liked the fact it would not rewarm coffee or keep it warm. Liked coffee on demand and the fact as soon as you fill the pot you can fill cup. I have had it now though. Too costly for an annual event. This one I actually got in Nov. and it now April and it doesn't work. Overpriced junk.

Like the machine but I can't keep shelling out $30 every few months for a replacement reservoir! I've gone through two already. I've asked Cuisinart to comment.<br /><br />We'll see.
