This is the first time I have owned a brewing station coffee pot. I decided to purchase this because my husband and I kept breaking our glass carafes. When I started searching I had a list of what I wanted in a coffee pot- Programmable, auto shut off, no glass carafe,no mess and easy to use (for my husband)~this had everything. I ruled out a perculator because I think it would be frustrating for my husband to make coffee. I also ruled out a coffee with a stainless steel carafe because what I found in the stores all had small spouts and I figured if you tried pouring it fast it would make a mess. I found one that had a wide spout but was only and 8-cup (I needed 12). I really like the light up displays on this coffee maker~they are bright, and when the coffe is brewing the on/off button blinks! When the coffee is on it stays on. Also, the coffee stays hot and still has a really great taste. (plus it has auto shut off). I recommend you buy the Mr. Coffee walter filter if you have public water! I like how fast the coffee comes out and with no mess! It brews fast too, and beeps when its done! However, it pumps out when you pour yourseld a cup and the pump makes a sound that I found to be annoying at first. (I am concerend that this might be the first thing to break too) I am starting to get used to it, and its not loud...it has not woke up our baby! As another review said, you do have to move the coffee maker out towards you (if you have it on your counter with cabinets above) to fill it, but we always did that anyway with all our coffee pots. Also, it is hard to tell when its low and you need to make a new pot. I do not think it is too big. It appears to be about the same size as any 12 cup maker. I did not want anything bulky and it was smaller than some coffee makers with a stainless carafe. Another plus is it has a place for the plug/extra cord to go into! I am really happy with this, it is really attractive and I am glad that I did not choose a single serve maker. I can make a big pot of coffee for everyone but have the convenience and "no mess" as you would with a single serve!
