Several reviews (for the same product at other Amazon sellers) seem to point out its difficult to pour out the last bit of the coffee. Well, that's true. However it has nothing to do with poor quality or engineering of the product. It’s a carafe, not a pot.
The carafe is designed to keep the coffee as hot as possible for as long as possible. When you push on the release lever to pour the coffee it opens a small hole in the underside of the lid itself allowing coffee through the lid and to the spout. Of course it will only flow as fast as that hole permits so tilting it more isn't going to make it flow any faster and if there isn't much coffee left it isn't going to reach that hole easily.
My biggest problem was filling the reservoir. With most coffee makers you fill the pot with water and pour it into the reservoir. As noted by others pouring the entire contents from the carafe (even without the lid) is awkward and can result in spillage.
This coffee maker has a level mark on the side of the reservoir so you can fill with a container other than the carafe to the desired level accurately every time.
I sometimes preheat the carafe with hot water to ensure once the coffee is made it stays hotter for a longer time. It's clean and simple design looks nice and I like the illuminated on-off switch.
