Detailed Commentary

The first statement says first auotmatic electric.  This is not true.  I used a GE fully automatic model from 1936-1940 build.  Unfortunataly a drunk friend broke it and I haven't yet replaced it.
Brew temp and Time vary from model to model and this one appears to run a smart temperature with a short brew time. or maybe a little cool.  Coffee grind consumption is huge for the 12 cup at least 3/4 to 1 cup of grind required. This was not applicable for the GE of the 1930's it ran hot and short and used normal amount of drip grind.

Buying Experience

Don't remember first one was a used timer model  for twenty bucks and the current model was several years ago
