Good, but keep-warm is quite short

Very easy to use and good features like ice coffee mode. I wish the keep-warm functionality could be used slightly longer (I think it turns off after 30 minutes?).
Overall, a good coffee maker
- by DAVALON67,
This is a good coffee maker. Meaning: It looks good (it's white, giving it a fresh, clean look), it has a paperless filter (if you're using fresh ground beans), and it's easy to operate, with an extra button called "aroma" which I suppose is supposed to give you a "drip coffee" experience. I can't say that the coffee tastes that much different from when I don't use the "aroma" button, but I will say that this coffee maker is definitely a step up from what my husband and I were using.That said, the top cover is extremely thin, and, like most everything else, is made of plastic. Because it is connected to the coffee maker, you have to use it with care. If you open it too hard or too quickly, it feels like it might break off. Also, there are little crevices in the unit that require a little extra effort to clean. So, there should have been a bit more thought put into the design, although, at first glance, it looks nice.So far, everything has worked perfectly. It gives a little "beep-beep-beep" sound when it is finished, which is good, and, if I understood the manual correctly, it shuts itself off after a certain amount of time to ensure that you don't accidentally leave it on.I would have been happy to pay more for a sturdier design, but I think in general these type of machines are meant to last a few years, so there is not a lot of thought put into them. That said, this is a good machine, for what it is.
