I am on my third Ninja Coffee Bar and still cannot get a cup of coffee out of this defective, poorly designed coffee pot. I was charged shipping and handling each time I returned it. Now I was told that the warranty was expired and they would not replace it again. The cleaning light was on after the first pot. Within a few weeks, it would stop brewing after 4 seconds (I timed it with a watch), and I would have to stand there and push the brew button for a few dribbles of coffee. It took 15 minutes for a half pot, which was cold by the time I could drink it. TERRIBLE PRODUCT. Do not waste your money!
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
