Summary: I had never heard of Zojirushi before but I was being very picky, holding out for a coffeemaker that makes 4-6 "cups" (aka two mugs,) uses a cone-bottom filter, and isn't black or white. This is the ONLY coffe maker - on Earth, apparently - that met all my criteria.
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: For me this coffee maker is perfect. Best thing is the removable water tank, second best is the water markings for both hot and cold coffee. Third - being able to use the hot water for tea as the coffee goes in a basket that sits on top of the carafe so the maker doesn't smell and taste like coffee.
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 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.
Summary: My Krups carafe cracked after twenty + years of use and great coffee. I brew super strong and the Zutto seems up to the task. It has a very attractive matte silver and dark grey finish and the typically excellent Zojurshi quality.
Summary: I have had this Zutto for about 6 months. It took a little time to get used to filling water into the plastic container and setting it into the heating tank as opposed to pouring the water into the tank.This makes it easier, less chance of spilling water.
Summary: Bought this coffee maker after reading the good reviews. I was willing to pay a higher price for a good coffee maker. I wanted a good, small coffee maker that fit under the counter when I was finished each day. This was the one. Don't expect bells an ... d whistles. This has none, but I didn't care.
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.
