    Great Machine for the Price!

    Just like any other machine, my coffee was perfectly brewed and easy to clean up. I set up my coffee each night and it's ready when I wake up. Don't feel like waiting? Well pull out the pot and it stops brewing, put it back in and it continues. What more can you ask for? This is a personal coffee maker, if you need one to appease occasional visitors, buy a larger one. When you take into account that you are saving money on wasted coffee, water, counter space, and a larger heating surface you really can't complain. I saw a complaint about a plastic taste and grounds spilling. That taste may be the result of using the machine without rinsing it first. As with anything else, it just came from a factory. You can expect the first 1-3 cups to taste odd until regularly used. It's also important you buy the right size filter for this so your grounds don't spill. You also should regularly rinse the holder cup. Sometimes it get's clogged with grains from previous cups or plastic from the factory. This would cause the coffee to spill into your cup. I rated it a 4 on durability because it will last you 3-4 years, then you will have to buy another one. They just stop working. No clue why. Maybe it's my water? I am on my third one in about 15 years.

    This coffee maker represents the third version of this particular line of Mr. Coffee coffee makers I have purchased over the past 15 years or so. To my mind, there is no better 4-cup drip brewer for the price. The previous two models of this line served me very well and lived reasonably long lifetimes for everyday use. I was actually secretly happy when the most recent coffee maker started making funny sounds and taking extra-long to brew (indicating it was time to get a new one) because a family member had broken the decanter a year-and-a-half ago, and the generic replacement I bought from W*l-M*rt dripped every time I poured coffee. The genuine decanter for this line NEVER drips and is a joy to use. The coffee maker has a very easy to read set of water fill lines on both sides of the machine for accurate measuring. A must-have features for me is pause-and-brew, which insures that I can remove the decanter even if the brewing has not absolutely finished without coffee dripping from the basket onto the hot plate. The other must-have is the built in clock and timer, which I rarely use, but still like to have as an option. At the very least I can glance at the time as I am getting coffee. The hot plate keeps the coffee at just the right temperature and stays on for a reasonable amount of time before auto shut-off. And the price is just right. I love this line of coffee makers and will probably continue to buy them the rest of my life.

    Bad design... coffee too weak

    I bought this to replace my old and beloved or cup Mr. Coffee 4 cup brewer. When you make coffee daily, you get into the habit of using the same amount of scoops and water, etc and get used to it should taste like. When using my usual amount of water and coffee, the coffee was weaker with this new brewer. So I did a side-by-side test with my old brewer and realized that the used grounds from the new coffee maker wasn’t saturated completely with water. Upon inspection, the little shower head in the new brewer is almost half the diameter of the old one, forcing the water right down the middle. I am not sure why they would engineer this way, unless to just save on materials. So I will be giving this coffee maker away and keeping my old one. Also, my old one is about twice as heavy, in the entire bottom is made of metal, where as the new one is only plastic.

    Good little coffeemaker

    The Mr. Coffee 4--cup coffeemaker was just what I wanted. I didn't want to buy an 8 to 12-cup coffeemaker or a single serving coffeemaker. I am the only one in the household who drinks coffee, and for that reason I wanted a coffeemaker that would brew just a few cups of coffee for myself every morning. This little coffeemaker does the trick. My only negative comment is that the coffeemaker does not come with a permanent filter basket into which you place the ground coffee. Buying one of these filters locally has proved impossible, and buying one online (which you can do) has proved to be an expensive proposition. People in local stores give you strange looks and can't help you when you tell them what you want, and to order one online and have it shipped to you will entail you paying shipping charges that are about twice what you pay for the filter. I had to settle for paper cone filters (which are not really a substitute for a basket filter) as my only alternative. The manufacturer really should have included the filter with the coffeemaker for this size of coffeemaker.

    Perfectly suits my needs

    I'd been using a French press & loved the coffee it made but wanted a coffeemaker that would be easier to use when I stumbling around half asleep, jonesing for my morning caffeine fix. I tried the smallest, "least expensive" model of the Big Name single-cup machines. Even so, the machine was expensive, plus the pods were expensive, it made tiny cups of weak brew, and I was uncomfortable with the glut of used plastic pods entering the waste stream. I returned that coffeemaker. After a little online research, I purchased this cute little coffeemaker at my local Best Buy store. It's exactly right for me. It's easy to use (even in my bleary-eyed pre-coffee stupor), I can use my own brand of coffee and adjust the strength of the brew. It brews fast, cleans easily, can be pre-programmed to have the coffee ready when you want it, and it was about a quarter of the price of the pod machine. I've been using it daily for a couple of months and I love it.

    Looks like a toy

    Honestly, when I was shopping around online for a programmable coffee maker machine, this model couldn't be further from my radar. However, when I saw that I could combine the sale price with a coupon, I immediately purchased it out of convenience for $10.00. When it arrived, it was like taking an Easy Bake toy out of the box, and every time I use it I feel like I am using something out of child's play. It's cute. It really works great, I love the programmable feature that gets the coffee brewing and ready just before I wake up. Also, I love that it makes just enough coffee to fill my travel thermos for the day. Just prep your favorite coffee and your good to go. Hope this review helps. If you have space for this in your office, I would highly recommend it as well if you're a coffee enthusiast wanting your own personal machine.

    Great, Effortless Coffee Make for the Price

    I was more of a K Cup type of guy(I previously owned the Keurig - K-Mini K15). That one ALWAYS got clogged without fail. Highly inconvenient, especially if you're not a morning person and NEED your mandatory dose of caffeine in the morning. The K Cups are also no bueno for the environment(pods were not recyclable or biodegradable). I decided to take a risk and try drip coffee. Amazing. This machine is as simple as it gets. Put in your filter(sold separately). Put in the amount of coffee you need. Put in the amount of water you need. Close it. Hit a button. And wait(a little...I promise). An added plus is that it is easy to take apart when it comes time to clean. I definitely recommend this product if you want an easy, affordable coffee maker.

    The Cutest Thing ever!!!! :o)

    It's so cute. It fits perfectly on my corner counter-top, which is limited on space as it is, so it's the perfect compact size. The coffee is made quickly and kept warm as long as you don't press the off button. I haven't tested out the programmable feature yet, but it is a great option to have ideally. Plenty of coffee is made for just me; I usually save 2 cups for the following day. The only thing I wish there was a "warm/reheat" button, so that I can reheat the saved coffee. I pushed the on button to see if that would reheat the coffee, but instead it smelt as if something was burning, so I immediately turned it off. Haven't officially read the manual, so I would have to check back and see if it's possible to reheat coffee. However, it would be so much easier if there was just a reheat button. Other than that I love this little thing.
