No, I do not recommend this product.
Great coffee while it worked. After six months of regular family use (less than 10 cups a day) it stopped working. It lights up and does nothing - will not heat the water or make coffee.
Pros: Looks Great, Fast / Speed
Cons: Quality, Performance, died after 6 months of normal use

I would buy this coffee pot again as it makes the coffee quickly and the carafe keeps it hot. It is easy to clean and doesn't take too much counter space.

The carafe does a good job keeping the coffee warm but (and laugh at me) there seems to be too many moving parts. Each day I manage to miss something, putting the water in, putting the coffee in, turning it on, having the filter basket in. The old hamilton beach I never had a problem with but it had no carafe and the filter basket was integral. You used the base to fill the water tank because it was integral
Pros: Stylish, Modern, Fast / Speed, Good Use of Space
Cons: Difficult to Use, Complicated

Love this coffee maker. It is fast and the stainless steel thermal carafe keeps the coffee hot enough for when my wife gets up.(couple hrs later) 2 things though, I fold the bottom of #4 filter paper at the bottom seam to make it fit better and don't tighten the screw cap tight when brewing to help it open easier when first used. Very happy with my purchase and as always happy with Home Depot online shopping!
Pros: Performs Well, Looks Great, Durable, Fast / Speed, High Quality, Nice Design

We have had this model for 5 years and needed to replace it. Looked at everything available and came back to this one once again. Works great, looks great and keeps the coffee hot for a long time. So this is the first appliance we have repurchased - they must be doing something right! Highly recommend.

Easy programmable functioning, makes great hot coffee which stays hot in the thermal carafe. The separate cap--added after brewing is complete--was new for our experience, but an easy adjustment to remember to place it on the carafe so as to keep the remaining coffee at its hottest temperature. Very sleek and attractive unit as well. Love it!

Straightforward design. Simple, obvious controls. I prefer thermal carafes - according to the ads and 'testimonials' the coffee is supposed to stay hot for hours and hours. The reality is about an hour and a half. That is really my only complaint...but it is a biggie.
Pros: Easy to Use, Looks Great, Easy to Clean, Convenient, Nice Design
Cons: doesn't keep the coffee hot

Love it, makes great coffee quickly.
Easy to use and love the auto feature.
The maker feels very light but is well constructed.
Coffee stays hot for a couple hours.
