Good quality for the money! Lasted for seveal years! Brew Performance Consistent brew, needed minimal maintenance to upkeep. Ease of Cleaning Inside parts a little difficult to get clean but no more than any other coffee maker. Ease of Use Simple use any one can do it. I like being able to set it to brew the night before. Design Very attractive and sleek, looked very nice in my kitchen. Durability Lasted several years where others burnt out in less than a year. We have been through several coffee pots over the years, this one lasted the longest.
