May 5, 2013Good until.....
"We loved this coffee maker was great cup of coffee and was freshly ground every morning. Then about a month ago the digital display does not register the full 12 cup of water with in the water tank. The coffee maker is less then 6 months old. The flag pops up and says full. So when you go to brew coffee the grinder only grinds enough for the displayed amount even though the tank is full. So as you can imagine the coffee if like brown water. I have tried to cleaning and even tried to get help from company only to get no where.
So I would not recommend this coffee maker on grounds that the company does not support their product."
April 25, 2013but a problem
"I was washing the caraf and the glass lip around the top just broke off.
It left very even jagged edges that look like waves. I am so disappointed.
I used it this morning just hoping it doesn't break further since I can't find a replacement on the web site.............."out of stock"
I really like this coffee maker and the coffee is amazing. If someone with the company actually monitors these reviews maybe they can help me find a replacement caraf."

November 23, 2012could use a little help
"I Bought the BDC550XL coffee makers two days ago because my husband loves good coffee.
This is my problem: I am having some difficulty with getting a cup of coffee that he believes is that awesome taste, it's, either two strong even on the mild or it's tasteless with the already ground coffee setting.
Also the gold filter seems way to full of grinds when I fill the hopper with beans even on the mild setting.
I love the fact that it grinds the beans and the coffee maker is so great looking that I really do not plan on returning it. I have read the instruction booklet twice cover to cover, also read the troubleshooting tips. So I am planning on working really hard to make this a good investment of my money.
