THIS IS A DANGEROUS APPLIANCE! The first coffeemaker I bought at Walmart lasted almost a year before the lid broke off from the handle.
Got a replacement unit, and in less than a year the plastic lid and attached handle fell apart and the screw on the metal band around the pot came out, so that the glass carafe full of just-made very hot coffee fell forward and scalded me from mid chest on and down my leg. I have not heard from GE but have saved this very dangerous product made with cheap plastic which does not hold up.
Monetary Loss: $23.
