Good coffee maker, been using it for more than 6 months after buying in a thrift store. Brews quick, and keeps the coffee hot. Brew Performance It brews pretty quick and is easy to set up for the day. Ease of Cleaning Two problems I have with this coffee maker are the design of the reservoir and the drip stopper. There are a several spots where it is easy for water or 'stuff' to accumulate in the reservoir and it is nearly impossible to get hands in there to clean it. Also the drip stopper not only prevents the pot from going in first but doesn't work, never did. So I have to wait for the entire pot to finish and the dripping to stop before I can pour a cup. Ease of Use It has to go together in a particular order because the drip stopper (which doesn't work) makes it so the pot has to go in last. Design I wish it were easier to clean the reservoir, it takes a really long time and I typically get a scratch or two on the back of my hand. Durability I bought it used, so I don't know how old it is but it is working great so far.
