Grinder broke, AGAIN!


I bought this pot back in October from Bed Bath and Beyond. I did not use the grind feature every day, just mostly on weekends, for most of its short life. The grinder ceased function in April, about 6 months of use. Now, I should have known this was ...

Love the hopper, no need to add beans every time. Good tasting coffee, stays warm

Grinder breaks after a short time.Pouring is difficult

I bought one of these in March of this year. It came out of the box working perfectly - then some problems arose. The first problem was that the burr grinder mechanism clogs after several brew cycles - and the only way you'll know this is that the...

Very good looking, makes a decent cup of coffee

Poorly engineered - seems like it has a software bug. Clogs

Great coffeemaker when it works

Dies after a few months. Messy

Really disappointed in this product


We liked the idea of a combination grinder/coffeemaker and loved the idea of a thermal carafe, rather than a warmer plate, to keep the coffee warm and to avoid breakage of a glass pot. After watching for a good price (this coffeemaker is pricey), we ...

Great carafe. Loved the pause and pour feature. Looks nice. Programmable. Quick brewing

Easily brews water onto counter. Poor longevity. Loud grinder. Difficult to clean

We received this coffee maker as a wedding gift five years ago. We have used it nearly every day since and it has lasted up until last week when I broke the decanter rinsing it out after using it. I will consider buying a new one but since the...

Automatic timer was nice to set for the morning

A few leaks did occur when the grind holder came out of place
