Bottom Line: Does two things and does it very well--makes good hot coffee and keeps it hot.
Positive Product Points

Makes great, hot coffee and keeps it hot.  Stainless carafe looks nice (OCS-12).

Negative Product Points

Pricey.  Takes a deeper filter than most.   Pours slowly.

Detailed Commentary

My old Braun died after 15 years.  I researched alot of thermal coffeemakers but always found lots of complaints.    From information on the forum here, I decided to try Newco.

I have the OCS-12 but the only diff is the carafe is stainless on the outside rather than plastic.

 It makes great coffee and keeps it hot for a long time.  After 4 hrs it was still hot and after 5 hrs still warm enough to drink.   I normally drink it withing 2-3 hours.  I've only had it a week but I love it.

 I went ahead and ordered the filters from Newco also (it's the same filters Bunn machines use).  

 It's definitely not a fancy-looking machine (except for the carafe it's just black plastic) but all I care about is good hot coffee.  I don't use timers since I grind my beans fresh so  I'm glad it doesn't have one (don't need another clock to set).  

It's very simple to use too.  I like the magnification on the water resevoir and the resevoir markings are accurate.  I do wish the carafe poured a little faster.    

It's priced at the high end of what I was willing to spend but overall  I'm very pleased.

Buying Experience

I bought from Newco customer service and received it in 3 days.
