12 cups, means actually 12 cups! I have owned the cheapest and the most expensive. Cuisinart, Bunn, Mr. Coffee You name it. 3 pots a day, I've burned through a lot of coffee makers. When my 6 month old $150.00 Mr. Coffee maker stopped working. The manual said it had to be brought in to be serviced. Are you kidding me? I don't take coffee pots in to be serviced. I throw them away and go buy another one. Finally I just went to the dollar store and paid $15.00 for a junker that poured water all over the counter when I tried to fill it. Then had to be completely taken apart after each day to be cleaned it was so gross. After racing home to shut it off because It didn't have an auto shut off. I decided it was time to get real. Do some research and find one that actually works, makes more 3 cups when it advertises 12, has an auto shut off and WILL NOT SPILL. That is when I found this beauty. I have owned it for about 2 months and I'm still crazy about it. I took my gold filter from my cuisinart and dropped it in this glorious machine. It was a match made in heaven. This 12 cup machine is programmable, digital, has the auto shut off, makes 10 large size coffee mugs. Not baby sized tea cups. The fact that its so modern and see through with the chrome and black shell. Very awesome. Everyone who see's this thing in my kitchen makes a comment on how cool it looks. I don't care if it looks like Charlie Brown's Christmas Tree. I just want the most functional coffee pot that' preferably programmable and does not soak my counter when I try to fill it or pour coffee. The extra features after that, just bonus items. The look is incredible. I don't no your needs. But if you like a coffee pot that is capable of blinking a red dot indicating that it needs to go to the service center. Then refer to my previous purchases. If you want one that works, needs regular cleaning like a regular appliance should. Will work when you turn it on, wont burn your house down, and will make and do what it claims, without destroying your floors and counters. While looking the cool to boot and taking less space. Give this one a try. Oh yea, by the way. IT'S COST EFFICIENT. My search is over. This is the DREAM MACHINE. I love it. I drink coffee because I like it and I need it. This machine is for real, the real deal. For serious coffee drinkers.
