Zojirushi Zutto 5-Cup Coffeemaker: The Good & The Bad
30 November 2011
Summary: This is a very basic coffeemaker with some big advantages. 1) Even though it is just 640 watts the coffee brews piping hot. (Better than Mr. Coffee.) 2) The cone filter is ingeniously designed to mount on the carafe where it takes up less space on the counter.
Summary: This can make excellent coffee with the few caveats mentioned in some of the other reviews. In particular, its water heater isn't quite fast enough in heating water to the proper temperature (200F).
Doesn't tell time, grind beans, or whistle Dixie; it just makes pretty good coffee

Summary: After losing my ultra-simple, twelve-year veteran coffee maker last year, I've gone through a couple of modern ones. They all had timers to start the coffee in the morning, auto-shut-off heating pads, and other checklist-oriented features.
Summary: I have used many different brands of smaller coffemakers, but this one will be my last. It easily makes the best coffee. This may be because of the use of a paper filter and more than one drip hole which slows the coffee from leaving the grounds too quickly, or it may be because the coffee filter is...
Summary: Single, wanted a 4-cup brewer. This arrived within 3 days of ordering, packed well, all in good condition. Simple on/off switch. Water container pulls out for cleaning, nice feature. Glass pot is wide at bottom, narrower at the top, pours well, stands well.
Summary: I never leave reviews, but felt compelled to recommend a decent product in the hopes that it will help someone in the same way. Pros: -Love the removable water container. This was a key factor in my decision. It's not revolutionary, and honestly, not even necessary, but it's a nice convenience.
Summary: I purchased this several months ago after tiring of my French press coffee system (and the constant issues with coffee grounds filtering through to my cup of coffee). And I cannot afford the pod/Keurig type systems. It's fast, works flawlessly and brews a great cup of coffee.
Summary: I agree with most of the other posters here that this is a fine coffee maker. BUT... it has a major flaw in that the carafe handle design is flawed. It works by a metal strap tight around the neck of the carafe, holding the handle on.
Summary: i just received my new coffee maker and can't wait for my first cup of joe in the morning. It looks great in my newly renovated kitchen! I wanted to inform other owners that I purchased the 4 cup Cuisinart gold filter and it fits beautifully....no paper filters needed.
