Comment:
Well, I used it to make coffee which was great! The first one had to be white viegared every 2 or 3 weeks. Then it hit the 4th dimension and died. The next one only lasted 2 or 3 months. The heating element just stopped working. I bought this because of Consumer Reports reviews. Now what????

Comment:
I love and highly recommend this coffeemaker. It's a true pleasure, and has become part of my new morning routine: sipping great-tasting coffee, playing my Lumosity brain games and reading the Atlantic. <br /><br />The coffee it produces is hands-down the best drip coffee I've ever tasted at home. Unlike most coffee machines, it has tiny micro-granules in the coffee much like a french press would produce. <br /><br />I don't know what else to say other than it's programmable, (you don't need coffee filters because) the metal coffee filter is washable and part of the machine, it's easy to clean, and it plays a cute little tune (optional) when it starts/stops. <br /><br />I've had it for a few months now and haven't had any problems, but even if I did, I would buy it again and again (infinity).
How long have you owned it:
Three-to-six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
