I should have done more research prior to purchasing this product.
Positive Product Points
Looks great in the kitchen, coffee smells good when brewing.
Negative Product Points
The heating element just gives up! Otherwise it was OK.
I guess we were drawn into the grind and brew idea. The concept of fresh ground beans early in the morning without the task of doing the grinding sounded great. The warrenty is great! We are on our fourth machine in four years, all covered by no charge except for the return and re-ship costs. The heating element on the original, and the three replacements just retires! The last one is only 4 months old and the same failure. I am unable to accept the I am the only user that has experienced this failure. Avoid the machine!!!!!!!!!!
