Pros Good taste, inexpensiveGreat taste, well designed interface, easy cleaning for a drip machineGreat taste, almost endless adjustabilityGreat taste, relatively inexpensive considering its taste qualityGood taste for a pod machine, incredibly easy to use and clean
Cons Relatively slowExpensiveSurprisingly loud, very expensiveNot as thoughtfully designed as other high end machinesCan be expensive if not on sale
Bottom Line Inexpensive yet makes a pretty good cup, but does take its time in doing soThe closest you'll get to manual brew taste with a machineImparts a great tasting cup, but some drawbacks in user friendliness and its high price make it hard to recommend to mostCan almost match the OXO in terms of taste but costs about half as muchConvenient, and tastes significantly better than Keurig machines
