While this crews quickly, its design is lacking. That is, the water and grounds overflow leaving a mess in the upper chamber. Grounds get into the coffee and finally, there's a mess to clean. I was happy to see the earlier review because I thought it was just our unit that had this awful problem. Cheap but cheaply made product.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Design change not good!
Hard To Clean
Water Despenses Poorly
Used every day. The way the water despenses onto the grounds is awful. The original design spread the water over all the grounds but this model pours all the water onto one spot causing the filter to collaspe and the grounds to over flow into the pot! <br />You need to leave the top up and spoon the water over the grounds. I know it was inexpensive but so were thier original ones. Before I buy another coffee maker I'll have to check drip system.
