1 out of 5 eggsDesign flaws

Pros: The idea for water fill is nice and why I got this one.
Carafe pours well.

Cons: My unit, like many others, leaks horribly. The leaks are inside the machine and seep out through the walls and corners. Out of 10 cups about 2 end up on the counter.

Other Thoughts: The functionality would be nice if they just had better quality control. The maker is useless to me now because cleaning up 1/2 the kitchen every morning gets old fast.

5 out of 5 eggsMy Favorite Coffee Maker

Pros: The font loading is definitely the greatest feature. Never having to move the coffeemaker to fill is incredible. Best coffee, and I love my coffee, from any machine I have owned. Starbucks look out.
Carafe never drips, unless you try to pour too fast, which is a great feature. Even with the b&d, gevalia or mr coffee machines spilled a little when you poured them even slowly. I changed to the paper filters because I didn't like washing the metal one every day. never a problem.
No leaks to date. (knock on wood)

Cons: Only two cons I have with this machine.
1. there is no back light on the clock, making it difficult to see.
2. the hot plate warmer is delaminating. or if you wish, the paint is peeling.

Other Thoughts: I think DeLonghi did a pretty good job with this machine. Perhaps a stronger enamel paint on the warmer and a back lighted clock would make this machine is, in my opinion, be one of the best on the market.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Coffee - Weak Carafe

Pros: Excellent Tasting Coffee. Front Loading is Excellent. Easy to Clean. Coffee is perfect temp to drink immediately after brewing.

Cons: On our third carafe for this coffee maker already. First one cracked while being washed in the top rack of the dish washer. Ok, maybe our fault. Second one shattered while being hand washed in hot water in the sink. Glass is very thin on the carafe.

Other Thoughts: Overall a good buy for the price.

5 out of 5 eggsMakes good coffee

Pros: Permanent wire mesh filter basket doesn't need paper filters. Swing open basket/fill area makes it easy to load the basket and fill the tank with water. Programmable start feature handy for folks that want their coffee fresh and waiting for them when they get up.

Cons: Digital LCD clock has no backlight, so it's hard to see in a low light situation for setting the programmable start. If you brew a full pot of coffee you need to be kind of careful when pouring the first few cups out of the carafe or it will spill some.

Other Thoughts: I bought this about 6 months ago from a local store because the B&D junk I used to have died suddenly on me. I have had no leakage problems with my machine, unlike some people have said in reviews here. And to the dummy that said it put grounds all over in his machine; well it isn't designed to use paper filters. That's why they give you the wire mesh basket for your coffee. And that is a feature I love about this machine. No more running out of those paper filters and then having to make do with paper towels until you make a trip to the store. Also, Newegg has a better price on this than the store I bought mine from, but then I didn't have to wait for it to be delivered either.

1 out of 5 eggsLEAKS, LEAKS, LEAKS

Pros: Easy water & coffee loading. Good cup of coffee. Looks good.

Cons: Started leaking during brewing and would not stop. After 3 times, I decided to dissassemble the unit and find out why it was leaking. Belive me it was no small feat. I found that there was a hard water tube from the the bottom to the top approx. 6 inches long that just gets sandwiched between the top and bottom when the top is installed. After putting it back together, it worked for about 2 weeks (we use it 7 days aweek) and started leaking again. This is definitely a design flaw. The coffee maker was not designed to come apart. I am now going to get intouch with DeLonghi and see what they will do. I am assuming I will need to ship the unit some where. It is definitely not worth it. I had a $15.00 coffee maker before and that lasted 3+ years.

5 out of 5 eggsMy Favorite (30-years a Java Nut)

Pros: Slow percolating option offers a richer coffee flavor: takes 18-22 minutes VS. normal near 10-minutes for full 12 cups water. Patience has it's rewards. Very fine metal screen filter is easy to empty (folding loop handle sits right on top) and clean ( basket is side screened and solid plastic bottom allows better steeping action.) Easy to program. You will never have escaping steam rise above the unit! The cord has a interior cavity to hold excess slack. Looks like Darth Vader would have rewarded it the Dark Side aesthetic approval! DeLonghi brand highly regarded for ultra expensive gourmet products: think Lamborghini.

Cons: Fit and finish mixes the black plastic and stainless steel parts that appear more utility than luxury.

Other Thoughts: Brews nearly as good a cup of coffee as a Starbucks french press without the fussy cleanup. I paid full retail at Crate and Barrel and highly recommend this unit as a sweet spot price for value.

1 out of 5 eggsDesign flaw in carafe -> cracks and leaks

Pros: Nice features

Cons: Cracked carafe makes it worthless - special design does not allow replacement with other brand carafe. It's a safety hazard.

Other Thoughts: Has some nice features, but with a serious flaw in the design of the carafe. I've owned two of them (I'm a slow learner) in the past ten months and the same problem occurred with each. With regular use, a crack will form at the bottom of the handle causing the carafe to leak and risk breaking when full. The top of the handle is poorly secured, while the bottom is attached to a metal band. The result is increased pressure on the too-thin glass of the lower portion of the carafe - and it cracks. This happened twice even though I only brew a half-pot on most days. When the coffee leaks, it boils on the hot plate and makes the carafe stick to it - a dangerous situation for trying to pick it up since there is already a crack there.

DeLonghi customer service could care less; since this happened with two different coffee makers of this same model, I requested a different coffee maker or a refund. Their only response is that they'll send a "no-cost" replacement if I send them $10!

2 out of 5 eggsCoffee grounds galore

Pros: Makes farily good coffee at 6 cups. Was inexpensive compared to others. Newegg actually did shipthis. Must've been before the new crew that punishes the buyers for free shipping.

Cons: Impractical to clean, have to turn it upside down with a sink nozzle hose.
Any more than 12 tablespoons of coffee, grounds galore inside the unit. And that is with a paper filter. It is badly designed.

Other Thoughts: Get another model or settle for difficult to clean and 6 cup capacity
