I have owned one Mr. Coffee 12 cups coffee maker for over 2 years. I found it is handy and the price is relatively low among coffee makers. It is easy to measure water, and it is easy to clean. The time it takes to make coffee is quite short. The parts that can be improved are following. First, the way to pour water in the machine is kinda awkward. Second, when you move away the pot when the brewing is done, it is still dripping. Third, the glass pot broke by itself one time after the usage of a year. Since the price is good, I still recommend this coffee maker.
