Summary: This is my second coffee maker by DeLongi. The DC50B is the best 4 cup coffe maker I have found to date. It is compact and convenient. I would choose this over Mr. Coffee because of it's cone filter. It delivers a great brew everytime.
Compact inexpensive Coffee Maker with impressive Design

Summary: I bought Delonghi DC50B 4 Cups Coffee Maker in Second Time - because I love it! I still have the First one for 8 years, and it is still working well but I lost/broke some details, and was afraid that some day a Manufacturer may discontinue its production. It is sitting constantly on my Granite Counter top, and most of the times it is on because I love my Coffee fresh!
Summary: Makes aromatic, full-bodied coffee.................although my last Delonghi coffee maker only lasted one year, I couldn't live without it. So I bought another. Again drinking great coffee. Try it! An Italian coffee drinker.
Summary: This fine looking little device is the second Delonghi 4-cup coffee maker that I have owned. The first had the dewar flask carafe and no warmer and the coffee wasn't really hot enough. Lots of microwave action for second cups with that one. This one has the glass carafe and a warmer; MUCH Better. It has the permanent filter but I put in a paper filter anyway.
Summary: I would not recommend buying this coffee maker. Getting the water into the reservoir is a clumsy feat at best. But worse, when pouring the last third of the hot coffee out of the pot, the lid falls open allowing the steam to scald your knuckles. I wish I could have gotten another Krups 4-cup but they've stopped making them.
Summary: I purchased this coffee maker with birthday money and am extremely disappointed. The average coffee temperature is 160 degrees. This coffee maker ranged from 100-110 degrees, thus lacking the flavor, irregardless of premium, freshly ground coffee. I contacted both the store where I purchased and the manufacturer and they had the nerve to tell me that's what you get for paying $20.00 for a coffee maker.
Good coffee if you can get the basket back in to make it

Summary: This coffee maker is a frustrating piece of high priced junk. It has a basket that is to be removed to dump your filter, but god help you if you do. It is nearly impossible to get the basket back IN to the coffeemaker. You'll be trying for 24 and then give up in disgust. I own it..I know. Buy something else.
