Like it but no replacement carafesI've had it for six months - it's great. The lid over the brew basket doubles as a funnel to pour water into the tank making this the most user-friendly coffee maker I've owned. As others have mentioned, the beeper beeps too early, but in my case this doesn't stop it from brewing. I just ignore the beep. Problem: I recently broke the carafe, and have discovered that Oster does not sell the replacement carafe. This is quite bizarre to me and makes me wonder about management at this company. Oster, when you order a shipment from that big Chinese factory, include an order for replacement carafes. (Not so hard, eh?)

Only Brews partial cupsI bought this coffee maker 4 months ago, and after a month of use, it started to only brew half a cup before beeping that it was done, even if I had put in 8 cups worth. Tried unplugging it, tried running clean cycle, tried using other coffee brewing options and it always beeped that it was done before even a cup was brewed. I eventually returned the coffee maker and exchanged it for a replacement as I figured there was a faulty sensor. I've had my new one for about a month and the exact same thing is happening. For a $90 coffee maker, this thing should be brewing perfectly. Instead I paid a huge quantity to get a coffee maker that runs worse then it's $30 competitors.

Carafe breaks you will need a new cofffee makerI would give this product a 5 star review, however if you break the carafe you will need to purchase an entire new coffee maker.
I contacted oster to see about a replacement carafe and was told they could ship me one, but they weren't sure if it would fit.
I have been waiting 6 weeks for this new carafe which may or may not work.

Great feature mix, works well, great online priceI bought this to replace a similar Oster coffee maker that I bought 10 years ago. The new one has all the great features plus a MUCH better design for adding the water and coffee, and small improvements to the controls. After a few weeks of daily use we love it! Also, the online price was much better than a major Canadian retailer's shelf price, and the machine was delivered faster than promised in perfect shape. Now we're going to buy a new toaster the same way :)

OsterI bought a second Oster after tapping the Carafe on the side of the sink. I phoned them for 3 days and everyday of the 3 days they said there was 8 people ahead of me. I stayed on the phone for for almost an hour waiting and still no answer. They were saying how important you as a customer were. I asked question about ordering a Carafes and still no replie to my questions. And what does my age of to do with the Carafe?

Does not work with permanent filterI bought this coffee maker yesterday, and purchased a 12-cup basket-style permanent filter to use with it, per the manual's directions. When I set it up last night, I saw that the permanent filter is too small for the filter basket. The filter sits in the middle of the basket, with significant space around it on all sides. So, if I were to use the coffee maker, some water will flow through the coffee, but other water will miss the coffee and flow past directly into the carafe. The manual states that this coffee maker model holds 33% more coffee in the filter basket when compared to the brand's other 12-cup coffee makers, which explains why the standard size permanent filter is too small. It is frustrating that the manual instructs users to use a filter that does not fit.
I called Oster's customer service just now and received very poor service. I explained the above issue, and the customer service rep insisted that I should use the standard size filter that is recommended for all their 12-cup coffee makers, without explaining how it will work in a filter basket that is 33% bigger.
The Oster brand permanent filter is the same dimensions as the generic brand I bought at my local store. Despite my lack of confidence that the customer service rep even listened to my concerns, I was willing to try the Oster filter to see if it would fit any differently. Then the rep tells me that the filter is out of stock, and to check back in 4-6 weeks to see if it is back in stock. Which is entirely unhelpful when I want to use my coffee maker now, and furthermore in four to six weeks I will be outside the return window.
This is the first Oster product I have purchased and I will be returning it and purchasing from another brand, probably back to my tried and true Cuisinart.

Best coffee ever very hotVery easy to use and customize love the fact the buttons are along the side not below the heating element. Unfortunately after enjoying my mothers day gift for two weeks my son who's 8 decided to get me a cup of coffee. And the carafe broke. I can not find a replacement one for this wonderful machine.

Amazing home brewed coffeeI’ve had this coffee maker for about a month and so far it’s great! The coffee loading and water refilling are so convenient and the coffee it brews is hot and tasty. Couldn’t ask for a better coffee maker!
