ONE OF THE BEST !!!

Lumix Fan "Bob", Amazon
15 January 2010
  • Summary: I was a bit worried buying the DCM485 after reading so many poor reviews but now think the reviews are poor not the coffee maker. I have not had mine for more than a month but using it twice a day, I have not seen any issues as pouring the carafe or having overflow shutoff valve problems.

Great coffee maker

D. Wilson "Racer", Amazon
13 January 2008
  • Summary: I read many negative reviews including repeated descriptions of the coffee not flowing into the carafe but overflowing. I read one that addressed this - "...assemble it correctly" was his response. In spite of all the negative reviews, we bought one.

  • Summary: In fact, it works perfectly. I followed the directions, and even though there may be some defective ones out there, mine worked just fine. The coffee's taste was what I was worried about, and it tastes 100%.

Great Coffee, Imperfect Design

David W. Ranck "CSharpDude", Amazon
25 March 2007
  • Summary: I bought the DeLonghi DCM485 after reading reviews on all the other thermal carafe coffee makers I could find. My wife and I are quite pleased with the quality of the coffee this unit brews. Keep in mind that we are somewhat coffee "snobs", at least that's how my Mom views us :-) .

We love this coffee maker!

Married!, Amazon
18 March 2007
  • Summary: After trying a different DeLonghi model and not being pleased (the thermal pot did not keep the coffee warm and it spilled coffee on the counters while brewing), we tried this model at my sister-in-law's request (she purchased this model about 8 months ago) and we LOVE it!

Great Tasting Coffee - Poor design

Kyla, Amazon
13 March 2007
  • Summary: I got this coffeemaker at Starbucks. The machine was on sale since they were not going to carry it anymore. It makes great tasting coffee, never had any problems with spills or leaks. Love the fact that you can pull out the water reservoir to fill.

DeLonghi DCM485 does spill

Kurt Junger "KJ", Amazon
21 January 2007
  • Summary: We purchased this machine 4 months ago and have used it every day. We read and re-read the directions and followed them to the T. We lined the arrows up when pouring, we poured gingerly, we did everything we could think of.

No problems here

dfarr, Amazon

  • Summary: I'll have to say that after reading all the negative reviews I was really skeptical when I received this coffee maker as a gift. I usually over-research items like this prior to purchase and based on the reviews I would probably never have purchased one for myself.

A Good Coffee Maker

M. Sawyer "sapper94", Amazon
12 December 2006
  • Summary: I recently purchased this product. I got a good deal due to it being a demo in a Starbuck store. It had been used for coffee samples and needed cleaning. After that, it has served me well. The coffee it makes is great!

Don't be scared by others' negative reviews!!!!!

Jennifer L. Smith "JustJenn", Amazon
1 November 2006
  • Summary: This coffee pot is great! It looks great, the coffee it brews tastes great and it POURS great!!!!!! Before you pour a cup, you have to unscrew the lid by half a turn. If you are a troglodyte who feels the need to turn the entire pot upside down in order to pour yourself a cup of coffee, then yes,...
