Simple Coffee Maker

geedee, Kohls.de
1 September 2012
  • Summary: I have used this coffee maker for about a little while now and I find the on/off button could have been to the front, as you can forget to shut if off, without realizing the coffee maker is still on. I also think it is a bit pricey for this item.

  • Cons: button on coffee maker

Better than what I had, but...

  • Summary: I purchased this machine on the recommendation of my local mom and pop coffee roaster (who sells them but could not get them in stock around Christmas) because my old 12-cup drip machine was brewing at about 140f, and because I rarely make more that two or four cups at once.

It leaks when pouring

  • Summary: A good coffee maker except 1) it leaks when pouring and 2) it does not have an auto shut off. The basket and lid do not fit firmly which causes the leaks. I expected more from Zojirushi.

Worth it only if space is at a premium

Christian Dreher, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this as a self serving gift to my girlfriend because of the limited counterspace in her appartment. On that front, it gets full marks, and if the footprint of your coffeemaker is of prime concern, you would be hard pressed to find anything of this quality.
