Expert Reviews


What reviewers liked

I’m happy this has a self-cleaning process. Coffee makers are notoriously hard to clean aside from their carafes so this is a god-send. This unit also has thermal carafe, 24hr programming, warmer, and it beeps when done, but those are all pretty common features. Less than $70, this would be great, with a different pot.
The stainless steel carafe also earns high marks for keeping coffee piping hot.

What reviewers didn't like

higher than average price
There have been some problems with the handle of the carafe separating from the glass, the fill line on the carafe is located on the rear and is hard to see, and some users have been annoyed by the auto-timer feature.
