I personally am not a coffee drinker, but I have guests over at my house all the time and I have to make coffee for them. I had the Braun 10-Cup AromaDeluxe Time Control Coffeemaker KF580 for a year and I loved using it. I used it at least 4 times a week when I had it. It is really durable and strong. I had my kids slam it to the counter top multiple times and it never chipped or got damaged. They would even throw it inside the closet when I asked them to put it away, not when the glass pot is in it of course. When having guests over, I usually make coffee in the Braun 10-Cup AromaDeluxe Time Control Coffeemaker KF580 early in the morning when I first wake up. Then I leave it on until the guests come. The coffee will stay hot in it and not loose its temperature as long as the machine is on. It is so simple to use. I just put a filter in it, then put in the ground coffee, and of course put the water and just turn it on. It filters the coffee so well. I never seen any coffee grinds inside the cups. My one and only problem with this is it says that it fits 10 cups, but when I fill it to the max, it only fills up 8 cups for me. That is a problem when I have more than 8 guests over. I really did love this machine but after the pot broke, I decided not to buy it again and buy a bigger one. Other than that, it's a great machine and it is also very easy to clean.
