My whole family is huge time coffee drinkers, so we use this all day everyday! It is a really great coffee pot! It brews coffee very fast, it stays hot long, and the coffee maker itself is very very affordable. The first one we purchased, we didn't even have it a year, and it stopped working though! No explainable reason. We purchased the same exact one a couple of months ago, and have not had any problems with it so far. Hopefully this one will last longer than the one before. Other than that, it's is an wonderful coffee pot!
