Ok what's not great is the lid, it snaps on to the carafe. I don't know how long the lid will be able to snap on and off before wearing out plus its a pain every time you want to fill it up or rinse it out, a hinged lid would be nice, albeit not much of a problem.
Well with that said it does pour nice with no dripping. I use my sink faucet which extends from the holder to fill the reservoir so I have no problem there. Set up is straight forward if you know how to set an alarm clock this is easier I didn't even look at the directions to set it, just turn the knob to clock and set, turn the knob to prog. and set your delay. There is an hour and a minute button to change the time. Nice thing about this is the up to 4 hour turn off delay, many coffee makers only have a 2 hour turn off. Like other reviewers have said the clock is not back lit, if I can't see it I turn a light on!!! Who sets the clock or delay time in the dark, I have two other lighted clocks in my kitchen (on the stove and microwave# so not seeing the coffee pot clock in the dark doesn't bother me. So over all it makes a 12 cup pot in about 10 minutes. It has a 1-4 cup mode as well, and there is a setting saver if the power goes out or gets unplugged it remembers the time and settings. The only feature it doesn't have is a reminder to replace the water filter, it does say to replace every 60 days or 60 uses. Also, it uses the cone shape filters, it also has the reusable screen filter. Someone said it makes a weak pot of coffee, the filter will hold up to 15 table spoons of coffee grounds, I use 6 for a 12 cup pot I don't know how it could make a weak cup myself. As of this writing I have had it for almost 2 months making 1 full pot a day, so far so good, I hope it lasts. This is replacing the two Frigidaire's that burned out in under a year #which also made a good cup of coffee), and thanks to BB for exchanging each one and then to this one.
