This is a nice basic drip coffee maker that would be great for home, dorm, or office. It is easy to clean and brews a reliably good pot of coffee. The outside wipes clean with a wet paper towel, and a regular vinegar rinse cleans out the insides very effectively. It doesn't have all the bells and whistles as some of the other expensive coffee makers on the market, but it is programmable so your coffee will be ready when you need it. It is attractive looking and has a timeless design that won't go out of style. I didn't think I would use this very much since I also have an espresso maker, but this has easily become my go-to coffee fix for everyday use. All you need is the basic inexpensive coffee filters and a bag of ground coffee and you will have the perfect cup waiting for you.
