Summary: I bought this coffee maker to replace a much more expensive thermal pot that was nearing the end of its usefulness. I checked on many brands and finally settled on this one. I couldn't be happier. There is one small flaw, and that is that it can be difficult to open the pour spout. Not very difficult, but sometimes it sticks a little. Other than that, a real winner and I will be looking into other Zojirushi products in the future.
Summary: After reading all the reviews for this coffee maker I went ahead and bought it anyway. I love the taste of the coffee, I always hated the taste from other coffee makers since it sits on a hot plate getting bitter. Problems with pouring only occur if you do not line up the dots before pouring. Overflowing occurs only when you forget the "storage" cap on or your filter gets crunched by the water line before brewing starts.
Summary: Zojirushi Fresh Brew Thermal Carafe Coffee Maker makes smooth coffee and the carafe prevents bitter coffee taste. I'm not going back to any other coffee maker after trying this one. It's a definite keeper!!!
Summary: I cannot recommend this coffeepot ..I spent way too much money for a product that didn't come with all the pieces.The permanent filter was not included, which means that I have to use paper filters. The box says that a couple of filters are supplied with the coffee pot They were not included in the packaging of the coffeemaker. Also the lid needs to be turned to open for pouring, unless you like your coffee to drip slowly into the cup.
Summary: I received my coffee pot in a timely manner. I noticed when setting it up that the permanent filter was not included, which means that I have to use paper filters. The overall appearance is acceptable, but because its' design, with the controls on the side, I have to keep it sitting length wise along my counter instead of backing it into the designated space. The pot is not as thick as my previous stainless coffeemaker, but it does seem to keep the coffee as hot.
Summary: This is a decent coffee maker that looks good and brews coffee quickly. The lid is hard to get off after the coffee brews and the coffee does not stay hot for very long. I have had better coffee makers, but this will do.
Summary: It makes the coffee fast and it's hot when it comes out. The coffee is only mildly warm after sitting all day in the carafe. It works for what I wanted and that is not cooking the coffee after brewing.
Summary: The coffee pot is amazing! Come back six hours later for hot, fresh brewed tasting coffee. The directions aren't so good. I recommend this pot, just remember the lid with a hole in the middle needs to be on the pot during brewing!
Summary: Love this cofeemaker. It keeps coffee hot for hours, easy to use and clean and the design is counter friendly with the controls on the side. So glad I spent the extra money to get what I really wanted and needed. Highly recommend this product!
