Purchased 11/15/2003. Price paid $300.00 at Williams-Sonoma. So far makes an excellent cup of hot coffee. Price is high in my opinion but all the Pro Line Series appliances seem to reflect the $300 price point. Comparison shopped Cuisanart Brew Central, and Grind and Brew and Krups products.
Purchase from Williams-Sonoma locally. Good experience. It is a new product and salespeople did not know alot about product. Did not have any accessories available at that time such as gold mesh filters or paper filters etc.
