I really hate the way they designed the carafe of this mr. coffee coffee maker, because everytime I pour coffee, it always spills all over.
I was not expecting to experience this in this unit because I have read great reviews on the internet.
When removing the carafe to pour a cup of coffee during brewing, the maker drips onto the hot-plate causing burning on the plate - contrary to what the manufacturer declares.
The cover needs to be closed to keep the coffee basket from pushing up when you place the carafe under the drip maker.
This coffee maker in not durable and the coffee it makes seems too diluted.
For those who are planning to use this as an office coffee machine, please use another coffee machine as this will only cause you lots of problems.
