We bought this to replace a simple 4-cup Mr Coffee maker that had provided excellent service for several years. We tried this as the closest thing we could find, but after trying it for two weeks, it s going in the Salvation Army box and I ve ordered a new Mr Coffee like the old one we had.
This model just has a number of dumb design deficiencies that make it not worth keeping: 1) The pot drips! Yes, if you re REALLY careful, you can pour a cup of coffee without some drops ending up on the table or the counter, but why should it be that hard? Mr Coffee never dripped. My wife and I both felt that this model should come with a sponge, because you re going to need it to clean up after every cup you pour. 2) The on/off switch is on the side, making it easy to forget to turn the thing off. Mr Coffee put the switch front & center, making it easy to see. 3) This gadget has rubber feet, but they re slippery. If you want to work the on/off switch, it s a two handed operation: one to flip the switch and the other to push against the other side of the coffee maker to keep it from scooting across the counter.
It s just not worth keeping. Mornings are enough of a hassle without having to deal with an incompetent coffee maker, so we fired it and hired Mr Coffee.
