Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by stonewaves Great Coffee Maker!
This is a coffee maker to rekon with! We have purchased cheaper coffee makers in the past and they have been okay...but... Our last purchase was a $50 percolator from Home Depot that looked nice, but the coffee was always so-so and there was no way to brew a stronger cup, so we gave the percolator away. $100 is more than we wanted to spend but we took a chance and did it. My husband is from Europe and they like strong coffee over there (so do I). We are able to brew coffee as strong as we like on the 'regular' (vs. Bold setting) with 1/2 the coffee beans we used before. We LOVE this coffee maker and smile every morning when we drink the first cup.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by ladyfoley Only half way satisfied
I love the Maker and it's features. I bought it for the extra 2 cups it brews.
Unfortunately the pot leaks when you pour and the coffee grounds get up into the lid where the hot water comes out so I'm having to dig them out every time I brew a 14 cup pot.
No I'm not using too much coffee! I'm going to brew a pot without the paper filter and then another without the mesh filter to see if it helps the coffee drip faster and prevent the grounds getting up into the lid.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by lovelife Great purchase
We like our coffee very hot and with bold flavor. This Perfectemp coffeemaker is hotter than the standard coffeemaker, which gives us a stronger brew (using the "bold" setting), and keeps our coffee hot. It also has a feature for brewing 1-4 cups, which allows for a good strong brew even when making small amounts (it slows down the brewing process so the hot water is in contact with the grounds for long enough). I like using the metal filter without a paper coffee filter; so easy and no waste. I easily empty the coffee grounds into the compost without the mess of a paper filter. The carafe has a nice modern design, which not only looks good, it is easy to handle and pours perfectly with no drips. The coffeemaker is programmable, although I have not used that feature. I do like the auto shut-off feature. I am not someone who needs a lot of bells and whistles; I prefer equipment that does what I need it to do without many complicated extra features -- this coffeemaker does just that!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by oldforge Far better tasting coffee than made by my old cuisinart DC1200.
Read all the reviews before purchase. Machine has features that makes brewing choices far better than my old Cuisinart DC1200. Coffee no longer has the bitterness that existed in my old unit. Make a fresh pot of coffee every other day and consistency of flavor is outstanding. The only reason for the rating of 4 is that despite all the early reviews regarding the access to the water compartment there appears to have been no improvement. One reviewer stated that she had to use a funnel to fill the unit. No matter what angle you attempt to fill the water reservoir it is impossible to completely empty the water from the carafe. Reviewers have been making the same complaint for well over a year and yet it appears that the manufacturer has so far not addressed this issue. Despite this flaw, the unit is still outstanding and the price, $80.00, was unbeatable!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nancy Finally got a decent coffee maker!
I've been through three coffeepots in the last several years, and finally have what I've been looking for. This one has a nice conservative design with a small footprint (I hate those counter-hogging monstrosities!). Its features are basic but it's well designed, so that pouring water into the reservoir is easy and pouring a cup of coffee does not require gymnastics (unlike the thermal-pot version by the same maker, which requires that the pot be turned almost upside down in order to pour a cup of coffee).
This maker keeps the coffee hot without scorching it, and makes a full 14-cup pot...something that's important for large brunches and dinner parties.
And to top it off, the price at Home Depot online was $40 less than most other on-line retailers. It was shipped quickly and arrived before I'd expected it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by cjinlm Makes good coffee
This coffeemaker has features for bold or regular coffee and also a 1-4 cup setting, both of which I use because I only make 2 cups and I like my coffee fairly strong. There are 2 features I'm not crazy about, but decided I could live with. It opens on top to pour in the water and put the coffee grounds in so you have to pull it out from under a cabinet. Also, there is a fairly small opening to put the water in so I use a funnel to avoid spills. The coffee is good and nice and hot, so I think it is worth the 2 minor inconveniences. It is a compact size so doesn't take up a lot of space and it is light so easy to pull out from under cabinet when empty. It is also programmable and easy to program.

This coffee maker brews quickly, even on the bold setting. The Coffee tastes great. Cleaning and care are easy and I can pour coffee as quickly as I want and not spill a drop.
