Negative Product Points
Small opening for water, carafe lid difficult to remove
Opening for water is too small and on the right side only-I am a leftie. When pouring in the water-You can't read the water level from the outside and it is almost impossible to read it on the inside-because it is like looking into a dark well. You have to measure the water first in the carafe then pour. It is not easy getting the lid off the carafe though because -it snaps down flush with the pot with very very small side tabs to help you snap it off- The knob marking to show you if you are on brew or program or low or medium,etc are difficult to see-I had to bend down to look under the knob to make sure I had it on medium for the burner. Setting the clock-I had to jiggle the button to get it to engage and set. Small things but at this price-it makes you wonder. Also on my wish list-the burner shut off which you can set starts at 0 and goes up from there is in hour increments--I would like an option for it to shut off in 30 minutes.
