I read the reviews about the water leaking, however, I was hoping to luck up.....NOT. The water does not leak once it makes the coffee. Returned the item!

Rated 1 out of 5 by ShellyB Leaked! Bought 4 - 3 of them didn't work.
I bought four of these for my business and two of them leaked from the bottom of the water holder and I ended up with water all over the counter. The third one the water went into the coffee grounds and just stayed there rather than drip into the coffee pot so it overflowed from that point onto the counter. Three out of four coffee makers didn't work and went straight into the garbage can. I will try a different brand and hopefully will have better luck.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MomScientist Takes Cone Shaped Filters
I've been drinking coffee for 35 years. Of all the coffee makers that I've owned over the years, this one works the best. It makes coffee quickly and efficiently. The coffee is hot and strong (concentrated). I attribute the efficiency of the maker to the cone-shaped filter. Cone shaped filters do a better job of wetting all of the ground coffee. This is particularly important if you are only making half a pot.
The controls are not complicated. The volume numbers on both the carafe and the see-through window are large and easy to read. The opening for pouring water into the maker is broad enough to avoid spillage. The carafe has a nice traditional rounded shape.
In my opinion, everything about this maker is well engineered.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Cleobaby Good coffee maker - A bit over-engineered.
Works as it should. I don't remember seeing anything about needing #4 filters in the listing, but it does. Having only normal filters, that made for a sloppy first pot of coffee :). Oh, and the basket will not set up straight on a counter so you'll have to prop it somehow while filling. It seems a bit fragile with lots of little fiddly bits that could have been engineered much more simply to be more sturdy. But, so far it works as it should.

Love this coffee maker. Found one at a beach house we were staying in while vacationing at the beach, and I just had to have one. Compared to my old one, it's terrific. It's fast and works like a charm.
