It's amazing! I love that at night, I can prep my coffee and set the timer to automatically start brewing at 6:50 am. By that time, I am usually finishing up getting ready and getting the dogs put into their crates for the day. Then, I come into the kitchen, grab my lunch, pour my coffee, and head on to work.
It is because of this feature on my coffee maker that I have been on time to work every day. Before I started using it, I would start my coffee while I put the dogs up and such, and I always ended up waiting for it to brew and that wasted about 10 minutes of my time. Ten minutes that determine whether or not I am behind a school bus or hit all of the red lights on my way into work.
It's great! You really ought to get one!
