Pros

The brew performance and brew duration were close to the recommended guidelines.

We had no trouble using, holding, pouring from, and emptying the carafe.

Cons

To test coffee makers, we brewed a full pot using a filter filled almost to the top, as some consumers might do.
In this test, the machine sometimes overflowed.
