POOR QUALITY--DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY

Bleubell12, shop your way
10 May 2014
  • Summary: The lid to this pot is very light weight plastic and must be carefully handled. The brewing process is very loud with popping noises thrown in, and takes an extremely long time. When pouring the coffee, it spills all over the counter no matter how many times I tried redoing the way the lid was secured. I am returning it after one day. I see it costs $5 more today than when I purchased it a week ago. It cost me nearly $20 to ship it back.

Not easy to pour

R. Glidden, Amazon
24 March 2014
  • Summary: I have used a glass lined thermal carafe coffee maker by Bunn for years 13 and LOVED it. This is the WORST coffee pouring system I have ever used. You have to tip the pot completely over while pressing a lever to get the coffee out. Also, the stop/pour does not work well either. I would not recommend this to anyone unless you like being aggravated first thing in the morning.

Don't buy this coffee maker

Robert M. Pitch, Amazon
20 March 2014
  • Summary: Folks, I am not "that guy" that typically writes reviews about products. But when I find something that is perhaps the worst coffee maker I ever encountered in my life I need to say something. This product fails in every area that I can conceivably think of. If you pour too fast it drips down the side and spills, it is not intuitive to program to automatically brew in mornings, it is hard to fill before operation, it turns off after brewing and coffee begins to get cold,...

Low grade coffemaker

Philip "Phil", Amazon
10 March 2014
  • Summary: Makes a decent cup of coffee and in a timely fashion. However, it isn't really steaming hot when it is done. The carafe pours poorly. I have learned to pour the water very slowly into the reservoir to avoid it dribbling back onto the counter. Then after the coffee is made and when I want that last drop of coffee, I have to remove the lid and invert the pot. It does a poor job of keeping the coffee warm. The lid has a hole in it that lets the heat out.

Disaster

Kari L. Vise "Multiple Mama", Amazon
20 February 2014
  • Summary: Received as a gift...used twice.... Today, I woke up to a coffee disaster...... somehow it got "clogged" and I woke to coffee everywhere and a pot of coffee (horrible tasting and crunchy with grounds in it. The last thing I am capable of doing first thing in the morning is dealing with a huge mess..... especially if I don't HAVE MY COFFEE. First, you cannot get all the water from the carafe into the reservoir. It is impossible. Second, it clogs easily.

Lousy design

T. Novak, Amazon
9 February 2014
  • Summary: An ordinary cup of coffee is 10 oz. This coffee maker at the 10 cup level will make 4 ordinary cups of coffee. Then you have to account for the loss that pours outside your cup while trying to fill it and the amount that stays in the carafe unless it is completely inverted. You must pour your coffee over a sink. There is no way to avoid the mess. I think the water should be hotter. It's hot enough to make the coffee but cools filling the carafe.
