Horribly designed carafe
I recently purchased the spacemaker scm2000bd. The thermal carafe is a horribly designed part. First off it is a pain to pour and if you are lucky enough to get the last bit out just set it down and watch coffee miraculously reapear from within. It seems to leak into the cavity between the upper black plastic ring and the stainless (nasty health hazard). But it doesn`t stop there while pouring into your cup it leaks out all over your counter from the same space on the outside of the carafe, the union of plastic to stainless. Makes a great pot of coffee though

Best Coffee Maker for RV
My old Spacemaker (from early '90s) was knocking on death's door when I purchased this one to replace it.
Things I like:
It's looks much more stylish and takes up less space than the old one.
SPACEMAKER (Ideal design for motorhome)
Does not leak coffee
Thermal Carafe seems to keep coffee piping hot for at least 2 hours.
Three things to be aware of:
First, as this is a coffee maker, there tends to be quite a bit of steam and therefore some moisture build up from the unit. This means that "IT WILL DRIP" on your counter, so make sure you plan for this ahead of time. It's just a few water drops, until you remove the brew basket, then quite a few more water drops.
Second, the thermal carafe design is short (good) but long (bad) and the handle extends pretty far back. This makes it difficult for someone without strong wrists to use one-handed, as the bulk of the weight is pretty far away from the handle.
Third, the water reservoir is graduated, but the makings seem rather inaccurate. If I fill the reservoir to the 8-cup (Max fill) mark, it only brews about 2/3 of a pot. So I now measure my water by first filling the Carafe, then pouring from the carafe into the reservoir, so I can make a full pot of coffee. When I do this, the water level in the reservoir reads rather high above the "Max Fill" line, but works just fine.
Since my application (Motorhome) is tight on space and I wanted an under-the-cabinet design, this unit fits perfectly. Although it has a couple quirks, it works beautifully and hopefully will last for years to come.
If our next motorhome does not already have one, I will likely buy one of these again.

Hate the carafe!!
We bought this coffee maker to go with the SpaceMaker toaster oven. The oven is great but the coffee maker is such a disappointment. When you pour the coffee it literally leaks through the seams along the top of the carafe. You also have to be careful when you wash it because the dish water goes into the seams. The carafe does not keep the coffee hot so you have maybe 1 hour of hot coffee- if family members go to work at different times the last to leave gets cold coffee. This is going back-

Coffee Urn Features
Three things that make it harder to use.
1. The shape of urn or handle location makes it harder to pour. Have to lean over farther to get coffee to come out and then way over to get completely empty.
2. The plastic on plastic sliding together to either pull the urn out or to put urn back is hard to slide. Recommend maybe some Teflon coating.
3. The shut off of coffee coming out of urn is not 100%. Even if do not push button to open and tilt urn over, coffee will still come out some.
I do like the style, space it takes up, programing feature, and water reservoir.
Overall I do like it. I had used an earlier version of the SpaceMaker coffee maker. It was, I believe, 20 something years old.

Under the cabinet/ limited space
My husband bought our coffee maker over the internet about 2 weeks ago.we did have minor fitting problems in the old spo but they were easily taken care of. It makes very good coffee but when you pull the pot out to pour water leaks out onto the table even when it's done. Could it be from that steam? It's very annoying when it leaks on the table. We were also hoping for a none drip spout on the coffee pot.when you close the top,I would assume it should stop the coffee from coming out but it just keeps dribbling while your righting the pot up.

Stainless steel pot and sleek design.
After owning an old SpaceMaker in the past, I've always wanted another one since my other one went belly-up. When I looked at this one, I was excited to say the least. It brews a great cup of coffee, and I like the way it looks under the counter. My only gripe is that the SpaceMaker separates from its base when I pull the coffee pot out to pour a cup. The only thing that prevents the SpaceMaker from falling out from its base, is the electric cord that is plug into the wall.
