Summary: Jug was broken very early. replacement broken in 3 weeks despite following care instructions. disappointing product from such a good maker. Stop press: i have since been contacted by Melitta directly and they have been excellent! Faith restored!
This is a very good coffee maker,no timer,just a swirch for on - and auto switch off..

Summary: My previous coffee maker was a Krups - it blew a hole in it's bottom and water leaked out. This one is a better proposition. Once made, the coffee stays hot for a long time. It has an insulated jug and provides a very good cup of coffee. A very good machine, a little more expensive than some others, but well worth the extra.
Summary: This was bought as a replacement to a filter machine that I had been using for a number of years from another manufacturer and I am truly impressed by it. I work from home a lot and will typically put on a pot of coffee in the morning and drink it though the day. The thermal jug on this machine works a treat and even after 4-5 hours the coffee is still good and hot (and not getting stewed as happens with hotplate machines).
Summary: A replacement for a broken Prestige, (second machine as the first leaked in 2 months, but has now gone dead after 9 months!) I used to use Melitta coffee machines way back in the '80s plus their coffee. Was excellent at the time, but no longer possible to buy Melitta machines or their coffe beans in my area and so had to resort to alternatives, which I never did find complete satisfaction with.
Summary: I have owned quite a few thermal coffee machines and this one is simply good. No bells and whistles but easy to use and very straightforward. I replaced the John Lewis machine with this one and this is much better. Really appreciated the other reviews that were left. Hope this machine works for a long time.
Summary: Delighted with the product. Only slight drawback is the flask capacity is slightly smaller than our previous machine so we just make fresh coffee more frequently.The cut-out is a good safety feature.
