One of the worst designed drip coffee makers ever made, IMO.

HORRIBLE! Coffee was bad. Cleaning was a nightmare. Mold formed in grind chute.
This was one of the worst coffee experiences I've ever had. The design of this machine was so bad. Luckily I didn't know as much about coffee as I do now that I wasn't quite as bothered by it at the time. From the first though, I was not impressed with the cup of coffee that it made. I disliked it enough to get rid of it after about 3 months.
The grinder is a blade grinder on the top. A very inconsistent grind is produced before it drops down the chute into the basket. A lot of coffee grind is moistened by the steam produced when the hot water drips and wet coffee is found in many locations. After using this for a month or two I decided I needed to do a thorough cleaning. When I opened it up, I found that there was coffee that would stick in the chute, get moistened by steam and then stay there hardened in. By the time I got to it, it had grown mold. This is where the freshly ground coffee passes to get to the basket.
Ugh! When I saw that, I decided I would not make another pot. I sold it on Ebay.
