This pot does not last as long as other brands I have tried. It drips coffee down onto the burner portion when you use the pause and pour function. It has started doing it's own thing. It beeps when you turn it on, it beeps when it goes off. Now, it beeps when it comes on and beeps within one minute and turns itself off so it doesn't finish brewing. I have to unplug it, and then put it on the Strong Brew function to get it to finish brewing. I am currently on the search for a different brand now.
