Worst coffee maker ever. Got this for Christmas, was so excited for it! It worked fine, but then started beeping and only half brewing. Then only brewed for 30 seconds. Called and did 45 minutes of troubleshooting, only for them to tell me to send it back and made me pay, print a label and drive to FedEx to ship it back, then they say it's only backorder. I am demanding money back instead of a replacement...especially after reading these reviews...and the $20 they made me pay - which I also had to fork over for COFFEES. We also have a Shark Duster Buster that broke down after 4 months. Crappy company and very unimpressed.
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
