Bought two refurbished and I love them.

Pleasantly surprised, J&R
18 November 2010
  • Summary: I bought two of these refurbished from JR.com and was rather nervous since they weren't new but they arrived in mint condition. [...] the coffee makers inside looked completely new to me. I use one at home and another where I work, but brew faster than any pot I've ever owned and the coffee stays hot for hours without tasting burned. I'd recommend one of these for anyone or even as a gift [...

Great coffee maker

Indy Bob, J&R

  • Summary: This was a refurbished unit but it came out of the box looking like it was new. No blemishes or any indication that it was used in any way. It looks great on the counter top, makes great tasting coffee although it takes more (but not that much more) grounds than my old Braun to make the same strength coffee. Like most folks, I had reservations about buying refurbished items but this purchase worked out well for me. I really like this coffee maker.
  • Pros: Brews Quickly, Makes great tasting coffe, Stylish

great coffee maker, produces good coffee

  • Summary: My wife and I use this everyday and it replaced our 5 year of Mr. Coffee stainless steel model. It seems built better and looks better. I love how quite and efficient this thing is. Brews hot coffee and the coffee stays hot without burning on a warming plate (unlike our old one). I have a feeling this thing will last a while. I really like the thermal carafe that it comes with. It doesn't drip any coffee when you pour and it stays nice and hot in it.
  • Pros: Brews Quickly, Durable, Easy To Clean, Easy To Use, Multiple Settings, Stylish
  • Cons: Limited Features

  • Summary: The design is outstanding and the exterior materials are very nice looking! Commercial type heating element made of stainless steel should give exceptional longevity. The element is place under the carafe and is a nice design feature. All the control button have a nice tactile feel. I feel this product offer a good value at this price point.

  • Summary: This is my second MT-500 My 1st one is 8 years old and still works great. It is being sent to our lake home. Coffee is excellent and just the right temp. The thermal carafe keeps the coffee hot for several hours. Worth the investment if you like coffee.

Beautiful Coffee Maker

29 July 2010
  • Summary: Could be a 5 but I've only had it a week so too early for that. Do love the maker though. Very attractive and easy to clean in and out. I'm not an expert but the coffee is definitely better and doesn't have that burnt taste when sitting a while. Pot is a little small but brews fast so no big deal.

Love IT!!

  • Summary: I purchased this Coffee maker last week. it Blows away the Cuisinart one that it replaced. The thermal pot does keep the coffee at a very drinkable temp for hours without that over warmer burnt taste . My only con is the pot be bigger 12-14 cups, though it brews quick enough that it's really not a problem(4-5 min).

  • Summary: Only had this a couple weeks so far, but I love it. Did a lot of looking around and reading reviews. This was the only one I found with the right combination of features and style. The features we were looking for were the thermal carafe and auto-on. But it also had to look good. The darn thing will be sitting on our counter for years so....
