It's basic, easy to use coffeemaker, but I'm not too happy with it. Coffee continues to brew and there is no signal, so you end up with coffee dripping all over the place. It turns itself off too fast. I like my coffee very hot , this model or maybe particular coffeemaker doesn't do the best job. For the good cup of coffee use cone shaped filter, so you don't get any coffee grains in your cup. Good size for small families, doesn't take up a lot of countertop space.
