This is the second one I have bought(I killed the first one trying to clean it out with CLR, and doing this is NOT recommended). They have greatly improved it over the last couple years. Originally, pouring coffee from the carafe was a pain because you had to completely remove the lid...they have fixed this problem: now, you just turn it to "pour" and it neatly pours out with no spillage. They've also improved the face-clock: it's now easier to see the time and has an LED background light that comes on while you program it or set the timer.
The coffee still tastes great, and it stays hot for HOURS...not to mention, if by chance the coffee cools down too much, it's not burned up by a coffeemaker burner; you can pop a cup in the microwave for 30 seconds and it still tastes fresh, not bitter and burned.
My only criticism: the new ones are a little smaller...my first one was a 12 cup coffeemaker, and they have now scaled it back to 8 cups, and the coffemaker still costs about the same...still quite a bit of coffee, though.
HIGHLY recommended if you're a frequent coffee drinker who cares about quality and taste but don't want to spend a hundred bucks on a coffee pot.
