Personel Comments:

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.

Buying Experience

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.
