The oven itself is great quality. The outside metal does get very hot ...that is expected in a most toaster ovens. The two pans that come with it are not the best quality...thin pressed aluminum.
The instructions says no other appliances should be using the same circuit breaker when the toster oven is in use...just a heads up.
Overall, the product is great.
I really like the way it looked and a friend had a similarly built coffee maker that I really liked. So I figured this would be a good one to try. When I first got it, I was skeptical because it has the built in filter and I had a cheap coffee maker that had a built in filter and the cheap coffee maker let coffee grinds through and into the pot. However, the first thing I checked was what was left at the bottom of the first pot of coffee and there wasn't a single grind. It did a great job brewing the coffee and I really like how it has a device in the lid that allows it to evenly distribute the hot water into the coffee to get more flavor out of it. Also, the built in filter is shaped/designed so that the water goes through more of the coffee before making it to the pot. So bottom line is better tasting coffee! Great machine and seems to be very well built.
This coffee maker looks really great and seems well built. You fill the maker by lifting the top lid. There is not a removable tank like some others. It uses the gold metal filter which comes with the machine, or a #4 V-shaped paper filter. It also comes with a charcoal water filter, which I did not use and the coffee tasted fine. There are no instructions in the manual on how to order a new charcoal filter, so I just decided to skip it. The manual also indicates you can use the maker without the charcoal filter. You can adjust the time you would like the maker to stay on after brewing before it shuts off, which is a good feature. When it is done brewing, the remaining time before shut-off displays and then counts down until it shuts the unit off. You can adjust the desired coffee temperature between 3 levels which is also nice. You can also select between strong or regular coffee. A 12 cup pot brewed in 8 minutes. I'm hoping this coffee maker will last quite awhile.
I bought this coffee pot online and it worked great. The coffee tasted good and the pot worked well. Then, after about 5 months, the pot just stopped heating and would never brew coffee. I would definitely encourage buyers to get an extended warranty. The pot is just too expensive to only work for 5 months. I'd be fine if this was a [...], but for [$] I'd at least hope it would last for a year or two.
