Not worth it, and it should have been designed by an engineer instead of a stylist.
Positive Product Points
Negative Product Points
Opening to pour water is too small; annoying beep sound when the coffee is ready, removable filter holder does not stand-up straight on the counter to ease filling it with coffee.
I am returning my coffee maker to Cuisinart. It works OK, and it is not broken. It is too large and the design is not practical. Frankly, the old Braun we had did a fine job of making coffee. I just could not find a replacement flask. The unit is also pretty big; it is too big. It takes up too much room. I do not wantr to make a big deal over a coffee maker, I just want a simple machine that does a simple job, and that keeps it hot. I am ewaiting for Cusinart to send me a refund or a credit.
