The brand name led us to purchase this coffeemaker. It was in the $50 range on sale and I see it is now only $31.95 on Amazon. We have not been happy with this coffeemaker. I am cognizant that appliances do not have cognition for do they harbor malice but this one might. Each and every time we have had people over and used the coffeemaker it has overflowed. Now it also overflows on the timer so we now only turn it on when we are ready to have coffee and we do not leave it unattended. That is annoying not to be able to come down and have my coffee ready.
