My 15 yr old 12 cup Cuisinart was acting up and i was tired of repairing myself.I saw this and the look was just what i wanted.This is 1200 watts not 1100watts spec is wrong.This brews at 200+ degrees on 2nd strength setting i tested.coming out of shower head this is good.The Carafe in my opinion should have removable top and solid plastic at rim like Cuisinart.You have to be careful when cleaning it is awkward having lid swinging when washing some have modified and cut a notch on right of hinge to remove lid not to much so it will hold back in.The top lid of coffee maker could be a little thicker.And shower head could be bigger.I've added up to 13 big tablespoons of ground beans and have not had a problem on anything overflowing like my Cuisinart did.I do read reviews and am a avid online shopper the only thing i do think Bella (Sensio) i believe can do better is on their Website Q&A is to answer questions not just refer people to call them when they need a new filter or Carafe these items should be sold on their Website and they should have uploaded a pic when they answered my question on this site i wanted to see what under the lid looked like they did not do.I like the 14 cup size.And it makes my coffee that i grind taste better.I unplug my unit after each pot is made.And use a chip clip in front of lid to help inside dry so no bacteria can build up that is common in coffee makers.Be careful as to shaking out filter in garbage to not hold on screen as to put hole in it.Lightly tapping while holding on plastic you should be ok.Never dump grinds in garbage disposal i learned the hard way yrs ago and clogged bad.I've had for 3 weeks now and i like and have paired up and matched with a Bellemain burr grinder on Amazon for $23.97 not same company but matches.I paid $39.99 if $59.99 i would expect a few things be upgraded like mentioned above.Hope ive helped.
First of all I drink coffee everyday so I've been on the look out for a programmable unit. Secondly, I've been looking for a Black Stainless unit to match my new appliances. This finish is perfect! When I came across the Bella Pro on sale at Best Buy, I was unsure because I had never heard of them before. I checked out some reviews first on Bella and saw that people like their products. I can't believe how beautiful this unit looks in my kitchen and it's so easy to use. I was brewing a full pot within minutes of boxing it. I couldn't wait to have a cup so I tried the pause and serve feature out and it was flawless. I like my coffee less strong through out the day and with the brew strength selector I can do that with out changing variety or amount of beans. Thank you Best Buy for offering so much at such a terrific price! I think I'm going to order their matching toaster oven right now.
Has all the bells and buttons I need. It’s so nice to program the night before so that coffee is ready when heading out the door. Brew strength works well. Cleaned Bella after using a month; no debris or gunk. Easy to program.
I just received this coffee maker 3 days ago and I am in love. But to your question... I don't have a photo but I can tell you that the the area for the grounds is much deeper than my my last Mr. Coffee (which always had the problem you are talking about) and even deeper than my Cuisinart coffee makers. The Bella also comes with a mesh filter which fits perfectly. I have also used paper filters and they turn out fine also no over spray of coffee grounds.
The best thing about this coffee maker is that you can actually use less coffee and believe me, I love strong dark coffee. The first few times I used my typical amount of coffee and the coffee was great. Then, I tried the strength setting for the coffee. I cut back to 12 then 10 scoops of the scoop that comes with the Bella and OMG the coffee still has a rich full flavor.
You may have purchased this coffee maker by now... or another brand.... but I am so excited I thought I would answer your question anyway. Happy Days!
