My old coffee pot went out so I was looking for a bargin. I thought I found it but boy was I wrong. When you pour the water into the coffee pot it leaks. I don't care how careful you are about pouring there is always water on the cabinet after you have finished. The coffee pot doesn't last very long either; so if you are in the market for always changing your coffee pots out, then this is the one. Me personally, I prefer them lasting longer than a year.
