Summary: My original Zojirushi coffee maker is about 10 years old and still working great. I put it in our vacation home several years ago and replaced it with an expensive grind and brew coffee maker. The expensive replacement was okay, but not great. When the grind part gave up the ghost I continued to use it. But it was not a user friendly coffee maker. I decided to shop for a new one I found myself looking for a new Zojirushi. It arrived about a week ago and it is great.
Summary: wonderful product. I like not having to use paper filters. saves money and the environment. Also the metal carafe keeps the coffee warm for quite a while without overcooking it. Also I love not having a glass pot because I am clumsy and forever breaking them. The product is perfect for me.
well designed coffee maker makes great coffee with fewer grounds

Summary: PROS: My wife and I really like this coffee pot. We are using fewer grounds per brewing and enjoying the flavor more than we did with our last few coffee makers. We can keep a pot most of the day without getting that burnt taste we got from makers w/o an insulated carafe that. Reusable screen filter is easy to clean and better than paper. heats water quickly CONS: to tall to fill while it is on the countertop but under a cabinet.
Summary: I have owned this Zojirushi for almost a decade and it still brews excellent coffee. There have been times, over the past few years, when I shopped around for a new coffee maker. Why? Not sure. Perhaps I felt I needed to “update” this appliance. After spending some time searching and reading reviews I come back to the fact that this Zoji does not need to be replaced. It still works like new. If it ain’t broke, why fix it?
Summary: Makes great coffee, fast easy to use, thermal carafe keeps coffee warm for several hours. Plastic base and water reservoir appear to be light. Have to see how they hold up to day in day out use over time. Overall a good product at a reasonable price.
Great choice for me: reasonably priced brewer and delicious coffee.

Summary: This machine has the features I consider non-negotiable in a coffee maker: a carafe that keeps the brew warm for hours without scorching it; an easy to read display when filling; a timer so that I can stumble into the kitchen at 5:00 each morning and my coffee is hot and waiting for me; and a reasonable price. I would purchase it again, no question.
Summary: This machine is exactly what everyone reviewed it as. It works great and keeps the coffee warm for hours, the only downside is that it uses a smaller filter than what we're used to and the top is harder to screw off.
Summary: We are now in our 3rd year with this coffee maker and have had no problems what-so-ever. The secret is to keep it very clean and it will make one good brew after another. I use the purple liquid utility soap to clean the carafe and filter holder and it comes out just like new. All other coffee makers we have had made fairly good coffee but usually burned out after two years of constant use.
