This works but not quite as advertised. Large cottage fries would be the best and I think a light coating of oil would be helpful. The fries were medium size and came out rather dry.

With the exclusive Breville Brew IQ system, this coffee maker has Intelligent Dosing, grinding the precise amount of coffee beans according to brew size and strength you select.

Once the brew cycle is complete, ready signal sounds and "Empty Coffee Filter" flashes as a reminder to empty grounds, particularly useful when pre-programming for automatic start. LCD screen also indicates when water reservoir is empty and time to refill. Press the on button and the soft-opening, front-access basket swings out for easy filling to use pre-ground coffee.

This is a very attractive coffee maker. Having the grinder as part of the brew cycle is very nice and also saves space. It is wonderful to be able to select the coffee strength and also to turn off the audible timer. This is an excellent product.
