I am surprised at all the negative reviews here, especially the ones about spilling water everywhere. We bought this three days ago and I haven't spilled a drop yet. I do not find anything about filling the reservoir especially tricky. So ... I have no idea what all the hubbub is about. My wife is l...see moreof the reviewer's review

I so surprised by the low reviews! I understand that it's hard to fill the carafe but get something that makes it easy to pour the water in..? I've paid hundreds of dollars for high end coffee makers and used all kinds- i'm so sick of the Keurig system and wanted to go back to making a pot of coffee...see moreof the reviewer's review

I really love the aesthetic of the machine and the idea of the grounds being showered to activate them before brewing. I would stil recommend this coffeemaker, but you have to know the obvious cons. Everything that the reviewer DarkAthena wrote is pretty much true. The water reservoir is located flu...see moreof the reviewer's review

I was looking for a compact, inexpensive coffee maker that was not overly designed and this Bodum machine fit the bill. This machine is programmable although we have not used this feature yet. The design is typical Bodum --- simple design and no stainless steel. I was happy to find a machine that di...see moreof the reviewer's review

Major Design/Functionality Flaws

I love the look of this machine. Its functional design is a mess and requires a redesign on Bodum's end. Do NOT buy. It's impossible to pour the full carafe of water into the reservoir because the carafe hits the water head (where the water comes out to wet the grounds). You end up spilling water ...see moreof the reviewer's review

First off... I thought the other reviewers had to be wrong, how can something brand new, not be tested to work! I love Bodum... their products are normally above average. I bought this because my other coffee maker died, order online Sunday morning for in store pickup. Stumbled to the store with no ...see moreof the reviewer's review

This coffee maker is a piece of junk. Water pours into the coffee filter faster than it can drip into the pot resulting in an overflowing mess. Do NOT buy!see moreof the reviewer's review

I like the design: compact, easy to program, the features I was looking for, and cone filter. There were surprisingly only 1 or 2 with cone filter. The drawbacks: It's not designed for lefties to pour water in reservoir at all. It says "never use a paper filter" so there is a coffee 'powder/oil' scu...see moreof the reviewer's review
