I love it but... I'm thinking it's time
I had a more modern coffee pot.
What's wrong with the old one? If it aint broke, don't fix it!

Chocolate, It is leaking like crazy, so I have to replace it.
Caine, You are right on - it is a DeLonghi.
Jkath and Rainee, The first time I had a progrmmable one, I thought it was heavenly to wake up to a full pot of coffee. THEN, one morning I woke up to a burning smell. The thing had shorted (or whatever) and was on fire burning a hole in my brand new countertop. I have never used that feature again. Be very careful if you do.

Sorry to hear about your counter top. We have been using one for about 20 years with no problems. Other than when that feature stops working and the coffee isn't ready.

Ours doesn't go off that much in advance of the alarm clock, so hopefully we would be up before it did any damage.

I don't think my countertops will ever burn - they're the original 1955 tiles.

I use the same one GB does. I love the thermos. My coffee can sit in there for hours and never get that yucky burnt taste that happens when coffee sits on a hot surface for too long.

lmao Caine - but how true.

GB - is yours a thermos versus a heated burner? I'm in need of a new coffee pot too and it was a toss up between the Cuisinart carafe model or the Braun carafe model. I think you and Caine have sold me on Braun. I won't have to pour my freshly brewed coffee into a thermos anymore to keep it fresh!

From the National Coffe Association.

Brewed coffee should be enjoyed immediately!

Pour it into a warmed mug or coffee cup so that it will maintain its temperature as long as possible. Brewed coffee begins to lose its optimal taste moments after brewing so only brew as much coffee as will be consumed immediately. If it will be a few minutes before it will be served, the temperature should be maintained at 180 - 185 degrees Fahrenheit. It should never be left on an electric burner for longer than 15 minutes because it will begin to develop a burned taste. If the coffee is not to be served immediately after brewing, it should be poured into a warmed, insulated thermos and used within the next 45 minutes.

Never reheat your coffee.

It is a thermos. This completely eliminates overcooking the coffee. It is brewed and drips right into the thermos and stays piping hot for 4 hours (no joke). The way the thermos is set up it traps all the aroma and oils and everything as it brews. They have a catchy name for it, but I don't remember what it is (aroma trapper or something silly like that). Basically none of the good stuff escapes into the air (or very little of it at least) so it all goes into the pot and then into your cup. I will never buy another coffee pot that is not set up similar to this one.

It sure is. It also has the pause and pour feature.
