I have bought Mr.Coffee coffeemakers for years, and have been loyal to the brand. The last 2 were inexpensive models and lasted about a year each. One stopped working completely, the other one's bottom warming element stopped heating. Warranty on each had expired by a month or so. I bought one a little nicer, and was pleased. It had the ability to program, performance was good, coffee tasted great. Loved it. Did not continue to drip when carafe was removed to pour. This morning, without warning, all the water leaked out of the bottom of unit as it was filled., Not one, single leak, but the entire bottom poured out. Tested it twice more, same result. Product is about 6 months old. I am unhappy about this purchase.
