This is an older model, but I still love it. It has served me faithfully for many years. I have thought of replacing it, but always end up keeping it. It can be used as a spacesaver under a cabinet or a free-standing model. It's best feature is the coffee well which is removeable and can be filled directly from a faucet. It has clearly marked measurements so you only make as much as you need. No more pouring water into a well which spills all over the counter. It also has a clock and programming feature. There is a safety shut off feature which turns the coffeemaker off after two hours. You won't have to worry about burning up all the coffee and damaging the empty coffee carafe. The thing I most dislike is the color. I obtained a white model which I now wish I could change. It is hard to keep clean after coffee stains are absorbed into the plastic. The heating plate is teflon covered which has begun to deteriorate. I guess that is common with teflon. Oh yeah, it makes pretty good coffee too. It's not a high end machine, but well worth the reasonable cost.
