I have owned several grind and brew makers including Cuisinart and Melitta. The Breville is by far the best one of the bunch. It is solidly built, easy to use, and most importantly, makes an outstanding cup of coffee. For those people who say that the grinder is too loud, I have to disagree. It is far quieter than the Melitta (which, by the way, uses an inferior blade grinder). My wife bought this for me for Christmas and quite frankly, I was a little upset that she spent this kind of money on it. But, I decided to at least try it and figured that if I didn't like it, I would just take it back. But, after playing with the strength settings (I like my coffee strong), I was pleasantly surprised to see that this maker does the job quite well. In fact, even at the lower settings, the coffee is plenty strong, especially if using a darker roast. Also, I used a thermometer to check the output temp of the coffee and found it to be within the perfect temp range of 200-205 degrees coming out. I had never owned a thermal carafe before and was skeptical because I like to make a full pot and drink it throughout the morning/day. Preheating the carafe is recommended and not a big deal for me. Just put some hot tap water in the carafe for 30 seconds to a minute or so before you use it and then dump it out. If you are setting the programmer to make coffee in the morning while you sleep, of course you can't do this...but for me, I enjoy my coffee hot and have no problem just doing it when I get up in the morning myself. Again, not a big deal for me. By preheating, my coffee stays plenty hot for 6-8 hours easily. Still warm (not hot) even after 10 hours. Clean up is easy (much easier than the other brands) and I use paper filters (brown) instead of the included gold filter to make clean up even easier. The bottom line is that I absolutely love this coffee maker and it is absolutely the best one I've ever owned.

First, let me say that I typically love Breville products. We own about 10 including the Panini maker, juicer, blender, electric wok, k cup coffee maker, oven, etc. Normally the style and function are both phenomenal. As much as I wanted to like this coffee maker, I cannot in good conscience give it a favorable review. The main problem is that it is unreliable, but there are other problems as well. First, let me say that we love our coffee and have admittedly been considered to be coffee snobs. We have owned several Cuisinart grind and brews and have found that the grinder breaks quickly, and prior to this Breville owned a Capresso Coffee Team (which we are now again using). Having been a big fan of Breville products, we were excited to buy and try this. The problems are numerous. Although we do not use oily beans, the first unit's grinder broke after 2 months of using it 2-3 times/day. Fortunately, Breville's customer service is excellent and it was replaced quickly. However, we are noting that the grinder is again "sluggish" and furthermore, the unit stopped working completely one day, necessitating a software reboot (leaving it unplugged overnight) after which it began working again. Another problem is that there is no way to brew coffee that has already been ground. There are times when a guest might want decaf and we either have to empty out the bean hopper and use decaffeinated beans, or use a different coffee maker altogether. The unit is relatively easy to clean (although it is not as easy to clean as the Capresso) and looks nice, but overall it has been a great disappointment.
