Summary: This coffee maker is less than a year old and I am looking to replace it. It leaked, and took a long time to brew. I am replacing due to the fact the carafe broke on me, I was not impressed with the quality as a whole.
Summary: Could be this one is faulty ...it smells and tastes of plastic! ugh! I did everthing it said i should .i.e. washing rinsing and running clear water through...but it still has that plastic smell....I am taking it back today! Maybe someone else had this problem ? i dunno...I will look for another brand.
Summary: Had my first of this model for a few years and loved it. During the summer we took a lightening hit and the coffee pot was a victim of the electrical carnage that followed. Went to Wally world and brought a CHEAP Mr. Coffee and it wouldn't even make a warm cup of coffee. Needless to say, Mr. Coffee went in the trash and I replaced my DeLonghi!! Ah,hot coffee in the morning again!!
Summary: We loved this coffee maker so much we bought two. One this year and one last year. When the programable timer went out on the first coffee maker we thought it was a fluke. When the second timer when out, it wasn't hard to figure out it was a defect. Great coffee, great features, just not dependable.
