I was thrilled to find an affordable coffee maker in red to match my other appliances. the fact that I can set it to start automatically is a real convenience. But when I just decide to have some coffee at any time of the day, I enjoy the fact that I can start it, and before it's finished brewing, because it has a 20 second pause, I can have a cup and go back for more later. I had a pod coffee maker before but the pods were expensive and I really could never get the right combination so coffee was either too bitterly strong or too weak. With the Farberware 10 cup, I seem to get a perfect blend all the time. The triangular basket for the filter is also a good feature and the less expensive brands of filters work very well. I recommend this particular model because you can make as little as two cups and as much as ten cups. So if you're single and just need a morning pick-me up of if you are making a pot for the whole family, it suits you needs.
