This coffee maker does a great job of making a good cup of coffee. The carafe keeps the coffee hot all day. However, this is a very slow brewing coffee maker. It takes a very long time to brew. I ordered the permanent filter because the paper ones were difficult to find in my area and it is hard to clean as is the receptacle.

I didn't realize how bad my older steak knives had gotten. We raise our own beef and it's very tender, but these knives made cutting a steak like slicing melted butter. Great balance in your hand, not over-sized unwieldy like some knives.
