    This Mr Coffee SKX23 model outperforms others

    Mr Coffee SKX23 12-cup programmable delay start model. Be sure the model # matches exactly, as there are many others that end with "X23" I've had several brands over 30 years, and always go back to the 12-cup Mr. Coffee. Even at work, we opted for Mr Coffee just because they cost less and are more reliable, and the hot plate keeps the brew hot. Last year I purchased a Hamilton Beach per Consumer Reports ratings. It made good quick coffee, and maintained proper temp after brewing, but the water fill port was so narrow, it was difficult to pour in a carafe full of water without spilling it. The LCD display was so dim from all angles, that you couldn't see it. I switched back to Mr. Coffee, but bought a different model number, which was square (unlike this oval model) and had the LDC display and buttons at the top. This way the display should be easier to see and buttons don't get sticky with spilt coffee residue. Unfortunately, I found the display also difficult to read and the water inlet was too narrow, but it made good coffee, like all Mr. Coffee models, but this SKX23 still reigns over the others. It costs only $29-$34 so it is one of the cheapest, too. Comes with a 1 year warranty. I did have one in the past that would not heat water after only 6 months, but I returned it to Best Buy for a replacement. No problem getting it replaced in the store, unlike what some reviewer said they could not do, even though they buy tons of products at their local BB. The failure was a fluke, as I've owned 3 of these with no issues. Like all units, they usually last 3-5 years, not bad for 20 bucks. cons: only negative is this model is now the dark LCD display, where it used to be LED display, which s bright blue and easy to read day or night. The LCD displays cannot be seen at night as all. However, it does have a green LED light for the ON indicator. Also, this model and all models of all brands, has auto-shut off after 2 hours. It is a consumer safety regulation these days, so you can't get around it. But, coffee is really only quality drinkable for 1 hour at best. After that, it has lost its flavor and most of its caffeine.

    Disappointment from the beginning

    I saw good reviews & bought it, maybe I got a lemon. The first problem I had was that it drips when you try to get coffee while it's still perking. I didn't see how to fix it, so I resigned myself to cleaning it up. Later I found that it can drip coffee on the ON/OFF switch, which causes the On switch to stick sometimes. The hour set button is easily pushed & then you wonder why it's an hour later. Finally, after 6 months of use it just stopped working. I found that there's a repair center close by so I can take it in & hopefully get this fixed. And luckily I still have the old coffee maker & I realized how cheaply made the Mr. Coffee is compared to it. Maybe they'll fix it & I'll be happier, but having to take it 20 miles to be fixed & another 20 miles to pick it up... I wouldn't recommend anyone else go through it.

    Our last Mr. Coffee finally died after 5 years...it was basic...it made coffee and kept it hot.... It didn't beep, clean the kitchen, or deter the bloodhound from surfing the countertops in the kitchen.....It did what it was supposed to do. When it died we wanted another just like it...but BB didn't have that one...so we bought this...it has an auto shut off timer.... We work from home and the coffee flows freely throughout the day... The shutoff timer works great....it turns our coffee off every two hours.... If you leave to go to work and are out for the day this feature is great, keeps your coffee from scorching...or your house burning down.....for us....it just means we are constantly heating up coffee in the microwave...yuck. I wish it had the option of turning off the auto shutoff.... Truly, that is the only downside.

    I'm 54 yr old single male. BUT, I've been using a Mr. Coffee for what the last 10 - 15 years. Unless you yourself break the container nothings really breaks on these machines. The work for about 2 or more years and one day they die :( But that's ok with all the features this machine has (instant off after 2 hours.. for the safety of everyone, and of course the best feature delayed brewing#. Seriously I've never had any trouble with all of the about 5 Mr'. Coffee's I've owned and with these fetures and at 19.99 #this week 7-22-12# if you drink coffee this is a no brainer. lol I've just started back to college my self.. I'm going to get an extra one at this price just so I wont have to drive to the store to get a new one on that sad day... I'm not good without mt first cup. #can't see... stuff like that#.. lol All coffee drinkers araise, get this!!

    I have avoided Mr. Coffee brewers ever since the days of flat-top carafes. To pour the last half of the pot, you needed a double-jointed wrist. Not any more! Easy to pour and the carafe doesn't drip, even when pouring quickly. The only drawback is that it drips when you remove the pot for an early cup of coffee. When you replace the carafe, it SOUNDS bad but it's not doing any damage, so it's no big deal. A full 12-cup pot takes about 10 minutes to brew, but that's only about 3 min. longer than my old coffee maker, so that too is no big deal. On the whole, I'm pleased with this coffee maker. Now if it will just last longer than three years, I'll be in pig heaven.

    Thoroughly Adequate

    For an all plastic exterior, it's a pretty solid build, and the carafe gives a good pour without getting messy. The timer works nicely and is very convenient for anyone who likes waking up to the smell of coffee. However, it's just your basic black display so it's hard to read from across the room (forget about it in the dark). I had a 4-cup model from Mr. Coffee previously and the display was green backlit for easy reading. Wish they had kept that design. Also, the spring valve on the bottom of the coffee basket drips a little when you pull the carafe out mid-cycle (Pause'n'Pour). Those are the only two drawbacks I've noticed in an otherwise good 12-cup, programmable coffeemaker.

    This coffee pot is great for the price. It feels sturdy and well-made. My only complaints are that the reservoir can spill out of the back holes and onto the counter if you fill it too much (even with just using the coffee pot that comes with the machine, this is possible). You also have to be careful and delicately pour your first cup of coffee if you've made all 12 cups, because it will spill all over your counter if you are too zealous. Aside from those issues, which we learned during the first use and have since had no problems with, this coffee maker is just as great as the more expensive models.

    needed a second coffee machine for cabin that we rent. Needed the auto-shut off in case somebody left it on. We've used it several times, works great, easy to use. The basket/brew area is a little high for our cabinets, we have to pull it out to add water. Like that the pot doesn't pour water all over, hate the ones that do that. So far everything has been very easy. We use a Mr. Coffee carafe system right now, I do miss that, but this machine has all the features you need. Clock, timer, Grab a cup mid brew, it's a great machine and won't cost you as much as one of the pod machines.
