Summary: So far, after several months of use, I would call this the best coffee maker I have ever had. It replaced a Krups that just suddenly stopped working after a few years service. Before buying this Capresso I did read many of the reviews paying closest attention to the negative ones. Glad I did not let those reviews keep me from this machine. It is high quality, looks great, fast, tasty hot coffee that stays hot (even over night).
Summary: When my cuisinart coffee maker finally gave out, I started to look around for a new machine. Who knew the range of coffee makers out there --and the range in price t. I read a lot of the reviews and decided that my coffee love might warrant a better machine. I had not heard of this brand until I started doing research. But I could be crazy for paying this much for a coffee maker. Having got the thing in my house and up and running, I think I made a good purchase.
Summary: I recently purchased a Capresso MT500 PLUS Thermal Coffee Maker. It works very well, makes great coffee, and is a good-looking unit. One caution - it's easy to overfill the unit's water tank, which creates a real mess on your countertop. I was replacing a coffeemaker with similar features from Zojirushi; it's as good as the Capresso, and costs about a third less.
Summary: Great design, coffee stays hot for hours and has a great taste. Thermo container has an easy pour top unlike others I have tried. The unit as a whole is easy to clean and the brewing time is around 8 minites.
Summary: I really like the thermal carafe. Best pouring coffeemaker, doesn't spill. I love the way it looks. The coffee tastes great. Only had it for about a month, so we shall see how it holds up. I would recommend it if you like a really good cup of coffee. The price was excellent.
Summary: The design is great, but not worth the money. It does not keep the coffee hot as long as they say it would, probably only for couple of hours, when it's supposed to hold the temps for four hours. No fancy feature. I feel like we've wasted our money, but my husband loves it. The water filter needs to be replaced every month which adds up on top of what you've already spent. But the coffee tastes great.
Summary: I researched coffee pots over a period of time and this one continued to come up with high ratings. I got another brand as a gift and returned it because it made terrible coffee, This was worth the wait. I love it.
