We just bought our second Ninja Coffee Bar after receiving the first one as a gift. Don't get me wrong, they make fantastic coffee - when they are working! The first one quit after a year. I cleaned it every time it said to but still had times when I had to sit and push the brew button every five seconds to get a pot of coffee. It finally just quit altogether. We had a whole house water softener installed and I thought maybe the hard water had something to do with the first Nija's problems. Well, I bought a new one for $180 two months ago and it has already started the constant clean cycle-on-off-keep pushing the brew button nonsense. I'm ticked that I have to fight my coffee maker for a cup of joe.
Lesson learned. I won't be back and I've shared my experiences with family and friends.
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
