Brews coffee hot, one of the hottest I've found of any drip machine. Simple, clean, easy-to-use with no extraneous functionality. Great overall value.
Positive Product Points
- brews hot - simple interface - easy to remove coffee filter bucket after brewing - drip/stop mechanism to allow cannister removal before brewing is complete
Negative Product Points
- no negative points related to functionality of product - doesn't have timer - not most aesthetically pleasing design in the world
This brewer gets the water hot + keeps the coffee hot -- much hotter than Braun machines. I like my coffee strong + hot, so with the right coffee, this machine works wonders for me. Design is simple with one button on/off + no other user controls. Coffee filter bucket goes in easily + is easily removed after the brew with two well-placed handles, so you won't burn yourself. It's not the most elegant design, but if you're looking for hot coffee that's well brewed, you can't go wrong with this one.
Nothing negative to say about this simple product. It's not the most beautiful machine in the world and doesn't have a timer, but those weren't the criteria I was looking for in an office coffee pot. For its intended purpose, no negative attributes.
