What a mess!


Keeps coffee warm for a decent amount of time. Looks nice.

Leaks and drips. Coffee stays warm, not hot. Hard to clean.

Shuts itself off


carafe is nice

I have owned this model less than a year and now is turns itself off after 20 seconds so it does not have time to heat up and make coffee. Perhaps a bad sensor.
