Do not buy this product. I thought I had saved the receipt, but I can't find it. It stopped working and goes straight to the "last brewed" time on the clock and never brews the coffee. Huge waste of money and they won't help because I don't have my receipt.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AshleySue So cute. Good coffee. Brews it just right.
I bought this exactly a year ago. Got the blue. I get compliments on it all the time (except for people in my life who only do black, white, and beige). It works great. I've constantly been worried that it'll stop working because rarely does something at this price point work well and look so interesting. Alas, coffee tastes great. At this price point, we've had coffee makers that burn the coffee. This, in fact, brews the best out of the four other brands I've owned.
That said, it isn't perfect. If you somehow get it on the "Last brew" screen, it can be very hard to get off it so it'll work again. In fact, if you want to use the timer and such, this unit really is not intuitive. It's the most confusing unit I've owned regarding using extra features.
Also, sometimes when we get the coffee ready to brew, we hit the on button, it beeps like the brewing is starting. So we walk away. And realize five minutes later it isn't on. So we go hit it again and it starts. My husband says he just hits the on button multiple times before he walks off.
So despite these two flaws, why did I give it 5 Stars still instead of 4? Because of the price point. It's got a lot going on and makes great coffee for this price, compared to competitors. If it were twice the price and had these small flaws, I would have docked it a star or two.

Worked for a couple months and now it is not working. Sits on "Last Brew" as if its something wrong with the heating element. I'm pretty sure I cant find the receipt to this thing so what can I do?

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Javaless Joe Great at first, then just stops working.
Ditto exactly the earlier reviewers who said yes, this is a beauty of a coffeemaker, looks great, great size, wonderful for a few months, and then . . . one morning, no coffee. it won't brew via timer or manually. It acts like it already had brewed and shows the time of the last brew. No amount of troubleshooting as worked. Given the number of others with the same problem, it looks like a design/mechanical flaw of some sort. The warming dish won't even get hot.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ebweb will not brew
I brought my coffee maker in April. Went to go make a pot of coffee and it will not brew. I have unplugged it and everything it just says last brew. I tried to contact the number listed and it does not work. Not happy

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by TiffanyG2008 shuts off and won't come back on.
I just bought the bella programable 12 cup maker yesterday and haven't even gotten to use it. 1st problem I noticed was that you have to look at the lcd screen at an angle to see what it says. Once I programmed the correct time and did all of the instructions before use, I set the timer to brew for in the morning. 20 minutes later it started brewing (this was not the time it was programmed for). then while brewing the screen turned off and would not turn back on, unless I unplugged it and plugged it back in. Has anyone else had this problem or know what I can do to fix this issue? I would return/exchange it bit I no longer have the box. :(

Got this as a Christmas gift from my husband, worked fine for the first 3 months then started to act up. Now all the buttons won't work (can't set time or select the brew strength) and it wont brew coffee or heat up! I will never purchase a Bella product again! I will be sure my friends and family will not either!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by AllyEss The carafe lid doesn't come off???
This is a plain old coffee maker. Not programmable, so I wasn't expecting much--it was a reward from work, and I needed a coffee maker so it does the job for now. For being a simple coffee maker, it works just fine. However, I find that not being able to remove the lid from the carafe VERY inconvenient and it is a deal breaker for me. I will be purchasing an new coffee maker as soon as possible.
