I got this coffee maker as part of a package deal when signing up with the Gevalia website. It is your run of the mill coffee maker but it has proved to be very dependable with out too many frills. I do like that it has a programmable feature so you can set it the night before which makes getting off to work ALOT easier. I have found, at least with mine, that I have to fold the filters just a bit to get it fit right. Now that I have been doing it- it is not a problem. As with most coffeemakers it is best to use purified or at least filtered water when using this machine. I have hard water and if I use regular tap for more than a month the coffeemaker will clog up which requires the standard vinegar brew method to clean it out. It does not take up much space on your counter and it is easy to take care of and easy to clean. Overall it is a good coffee maker for the coffee lover or the occasional coffee drinker.
