      Does what is expected of a modern coffee maker.

      When I purchased this coffee maker, I was looking for an alternative to me Kuerig instant coffee maker. The K-cups are super expensive and they lasted us maybe a week and were only enough to make one 10 oz/12oz/16oz cup of coffee which was great on the go plus it was fast, but for the days I stay off work i like having more than one, so that's why I opted to get a traditional coffee pot. This does the job really well, it is a simple set up and the delay brew is both easy and a life saver. My only complaint is that it stays very hot for about 3-4 hours after brewing, which is fine but if you drink your coffee black without milk then it will be too hot to drink right after pouring. One other issue I found was that the compartment that stores the coffee grinds inside the coffee pot gets really damp. Not like a constant drip or a considerable leak for the area around it, but I have began to notice after months of it seeing daily use. I purchased the warranty so I'm not worried about it too much, but it is worth mentioning for buyers. There's nothing super special about it that other modern brewers don't already have, but for the price and it's quality/look and easy usage I will give it a 4/5 star rating.

      Saves power, makes a great cup

      First of all, I want to correct a serious misconception for this unit... It does not auto power off, as there is not heating element to power off in the first place! This unit heats the water and brews 10 cups in about 4 minutes; and deposits the coffee directly into a vacuum insulated carafe. Just like a Thermos, this keeps the coffee hot for hours without having to have an energy sucking heating plate under it. The 2hr "autooff" that gets mentioned is just a timer to let you know when the coffee is "old". Actually, rather nice. We've had hot coffee as far as 6hrs after brewing. You never have to worry about burning the coffee, and just think about the energy savings when not having to have a 600w heating element running for 2+hrs. Coffee is brewed in about the amount of time that a Bunn does. I find the coffee tastes better, and again, energy savings. A Bunn not only has the heating plate, but is always running a heating element for the reservoir to have the water ready. Add it up and this pot is $70-$80 vs $130 for a Bunn, and then your power bill is cheaper. Forget Return on Investment. It's just a return! We bought one two years ago, force replaced my mother's dead Bunn with one about 9mos ago, and I'm about to pop for one here at the office because I am sick of co-workers leaving the heater on and coming in the next morning to coffee charcoal.

      We had the first release of the coffee maker and it served us very well despite hard water. It finally gave up after 2-3 pots brewed per day for 5 years. So we shopped, compared prices, and found that the same product was still available and the best rated deal for the features what we wanted - a thermal carafe and a water filter. I like the removable water well for easy fill up at the sink or at the frig. Care and use are easy. Bonus is I have an extra carafe now from the old machine so on those mornings when I need more than one pot to fill all our family travel mugs, I can just keep on brewing. Best Buy made the price comparison, purchase, and pick up easy so mourning the passing of our former coffee maker was short lived.

      I like being able to remove the coffee basket for thorough cleaning. Even 3 hours after brewing, the insulated carafe kept the coffee hot. The rapid brewing does require using just a bit more coffee grounds but well worth the trade off. I had read a number of reviews commenting about the bit of water remaining in the reservoir after brewing; but I expect that is the case with all coffee makers -- with this one, you can see the remaining water. However, the reservoir is easily removed for draining those fews drops and for ease of filling. The only downside so far is that the charcoal water filters are very difficult to find. In fact, today I chased all over town, made 4 stops and still couldn't find them. The filters are available through Mr. Coffee but it appears they cost more than twice what I paid for filters when I purchased the machine. .

      Best brewer for serious coffee drinker

      This is my second Mr Coffee brewer and it is even better than the original. I found that the design of the hinged lid on the first one often was in the way when filling with water but the new lid is completely removable so I can sit it aside. I love that there is no heating plate to burn my coffee. The insulated carafe keeps the coffee hot for hours. Best bonus? My carafe from my old brewer fits the new one so I can brew twice as much coffee at once for when I have guests! My old one still works after 6 years but was looking worn and brewing slower despite the regular cleaning. I could plug it in right now and brew coffee with it if needed. I don't do latte or capuccino, all those weird drinks, so a straight up brewer is just what I need. I hope Mr Coffee continues this one for MANY years to come.

      Replaced an aging Krups and never liked some aspects of it so I decided to try another brand. I came home with a Braun. I really didn’t like it even before it quit after two months. Brought it back and tried this one. It is a real winner. Coffee is warm, stays warm, and my wife thinks it tastes great. I love the removable water container. I fill it up from my fridge, which has a nice filter, and don’t have to pour from the pot into a small opening behind the machine. And it has an indentation where your fingers go that makes it easy to carry. The controls are easy and intuitive, unlike the Braun. Only thing I don’t love is the filter attached to the top of the basket. I’d rather not deal with it every day. I might just remove it because I use filtered water anyway. Forget the overpriced brands. Joe DiMaggio was right. Mr. Coffee is the greatest coffee brewing system ever.

      Lives up to claims.

      I'm jumping the gun here since I only got it yesterday, but after two pots, I think it's very good. Yesterday I preheated the carafe and made my first pot. It was almost too hot so I had to let it cool before drinking. Also, 8 hours later it was still hot enough to drink. Today, I made a pot without preheating the carafe and 2 hours later it is still very hot. I like my coffee strong and so I use a little more coffee for each brew, however, the first pot was almost too strong using the amount of coffee I used in my previous pot, so today I used less coffee and that worked well. I suppose that if this coffee pot last long enough, the saving I get from using less coffee will pay for the pot (compared to my last coffee pot). That's being optimistic, but you get the idea. Bottom line... I think I made a good decision getting this.

      Horrible Product

      For nearly a hundred bucks, you'd expect a decent cup of coffee on a Sunday morning, NOT a leaky mess all over your countertop. This product FAILED Miserably, right from the get go. Leaked repeatedly, as many had stated before me. I was hoping for a better result, or an upgraded unit. Didn't happen. I called customer service. EXCELLENT Customer Service ! They sent me out a new, higher priced model, but unfortunately, it forces the water through the coffee so fast, you get hot, brown water, and not coffee. Also, sediment ( coffee grounds ) go right through the "Gold Filter". Repeated tries, same thing. I'm DONE with Mr. Coffee. Working on a refund at this point. Bad product. My 30.00 Black & Decker Coffee maker is a MUCH BETTER product than either of these peices of JUNK. Kudos though, to very nice Customer Service, very helpful people.
