Rated 3 out of 5 by Stoker67 pretty but flawed
a good looking coffee machine but poorly designed. There's a couple of annoying design issues with this product:
1. the hole to fill up with water is very narrow so unless you've got a steady hand or a funnel you end up spilling water.
2. it's very difficult to tell how much water you've put in as the is no coloured bead in the water level indicator.
3. when you then open the lid after a brew the condensation runs down the back of the machine!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Debs56 Nice coffee and easy to use
This is the first filter machine I've bought so I have no comparison to make but I've been using it for just over 2 weeks now and I'm really happy with it. I use the timer function to come on in morning. It's really easy to set up and use. Switch on, set the time, set the time for it to switch on and then press auto. Easy.
I've only used one type of coffee in there so far and only up to three cups (using the aroma function) but it makes a nice coffee. Pleasant change from instant!
Only couple of small issues. The steam from the pot does mist up the display slightly, not sure if this will have any long term effect and the condensation when you lift the lid, runs either back down into the machine or down the back. I tend to open it to air when I switch off but only open it partially. The lid does stay open but doesn't drip down the back.
One thing I'm really happy about is that it keeps the coffee hot! Even up to the 2 hours auto cut off, perfectly hot and not stewed at all.

Rated 4 out of 5 by donalm Remember flush the cups with boiling water first
it takes a bit of experimentation to get it right first use boiling water and a little less coffee than you think and a cup more water than you need ie for 2 cups use 3 cups of water and 2 amounts of coffee and remember flush the cups with boiling water first sorry if it sounds labours but its the way to great hot coffee and at the offer price well worth a punt Enjoy

Rated 5 out of 5 by AliJJ Looks great and works well.
This machine has extras I hadn't realised when I bought it eg timer so I think it's great value. And it doesn't appear to need filter papers.
