I'm not going to say this is the Rolls Royce of coffee machines, because it's not. But for the money, it's a fantastic little machine that's really easy to use, easy to clean, and makes a great cup, or pot, of coffee. I noticed someone saying in another review that they'd rather it had a built-in filter than requiring paper filters. But conversely I actually find paper filters (which are seriously cheap in bulk) a really neat way of removing the coffee grounds, rather than having to remove and rinse a permanent filter after every use. And even though it mostly has a plastic exterior, it still looks pretty stylish with the black body and silver trim.
So far, I can't fault it.
