I looked high and low for a front access coffee maker, I hate to drag it out from beneath the cabinets to fill the weather vessel. This machine fits the bill and for a good price.
The brewing process takes longer than our Krupps model, but the coffee actually tastes better, so it's worth the wait (most mornings!)

Found out on day 3 carafe leaks. As this was gift and thought to be sound, box was tossed. HD won't exchange just carafe. Now st with $80 clunker.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Ebbie 10-Cup Drip Coffee Maker with Front Access
The only reason I choose 1 star was because it was mandatory. I purchased this coffee maker and it didn't even last a year. The warming plate became rusty and the carafe's top broke off. When I notified the company, I had to send the coffee maker back to them (even with proof of purchase) at my expense, before they would replace it. My Black and Decker coffee maker lasted longer than this piece of garbage. Don't waste your money on this or any other Delonghier product.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by JW270 There are pros and cons.....
First of all, the coffeemaker does make good, hot coffee. The ability to fill the reservoir from the front is a real plus for me. On the negative side, you have to unscrew the top of the carafe to pour the coffee and the spout is not very well designed so, as other reviews have indicated, the coffee does tend to splash on the counter unless you are very careful. Also, don't expect a lot from the plate on the top that is supposed to warm the coffee cups. There is some heat, but not enough to say that the cups are warm. So, the bottom line is that I would recommend this coffeemaker if you are looking for good, hot coffee and are willing to put up with some minor inconveniences.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by darksun No broken crafts
For whatever reason we (my wife and I) could always find a way to break the glass container of our coffee maker. This is the tenth one we have gotten since we been married. I am very happy with this product. It works great and we enjoy it. But the best feature for me is I don't have to worry about a broken craft. That alone gets a five star rating from me.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by spftrain Love the front access to pour the water
I used one of these at a Bed and Breakfast I stayed in last winter, and I just loved the idea of pouring the water in the front, and accessing the coffee grounds without ever having to move the coffee pot out from under the cabinets. It's great. However, the one that I got, has a little problem with it. The door to close the water area doesn't want to shut completely tight. It's kind of a pain and there have been a couple of times that the coffee spilled everywhere while brewing because everything wasn't shut completely tight. And, when you pull the pot out, many times, it pulls open the water door area. I've gotten used to it, but I think it's a defect in this one. Still love the convenience of this pot.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Denzil this product has easy pouring,less spilled water
Love this product, this will be my fourth purchase of a DeLonghi coffee pot. I purchased 1 with glass pot first, then purchased 2, ! for myself and 1 for a friend, Then I purchased 1 for a gift, and now it's time for a new one as some valve stuck and is dripping water. Other than that it makes great coffee that stays hot for several hours. When poring from pot you need to turn the lid back a quarter of a turn and then hold it with your thumb while pouring and it works just fine.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SnoozieQ Not the greatest coffee maker I've ever owned, but not bad for the money.
Convenient setup to add water and coffee without having to move the coffee maker. Brew time average. Water level gauge impossible to read, and you have to take the lid off the carafe or you are forever trying to pour coffee into your cup.
