Best Uses
Comment:
At first it was a novelty then it became an essential companion, then it just stopped functioning.<br />It failed to pump all the water out of the reservoir on most occasions giving a third of a cup of liquid this time then overflow the next. Grounds in the coffee were very frequent. It bubbled back up into the top reservoir constantly. If the top reservoir had water in it ready for the next cup, it had noisy air bubbling action in that area. This was an award from airmiles I believe.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
