the coffeemake was just what I expected. The price was right, delivery was on-time and it arrived in great shape. I'm loving the coffee every morning..
It seems to brew ok, but has a few design flaws that make it inconvenient to use. 1. When I fill the pot with water to 6 cups, and pour it in, it reaches 8 cups on the numbers printed on the side.. when it finishes brewing, it is 6 cups in the pot. 2. When it has been on for about 30 minutes, steam starts to condense between the filter basket and the body of the coffee maker, so when you pull the pot out, it dumps about 2 tbsp of clear water right on the hotplate. (It's not coffee from inside the basket.) If the space below the filter basket was sloped, this wouldn't happen. 3. When you open the lid after brewing, water that condensed on the inside of the lid rolls down on to the countertop, due to the irregular shape of the lid. Additionally, it really should have an auto shutoff. They're not expensive to implement these days. I wouldn't buy this particular model again, and would consider other brands more than before.
This is my 2nd Mr.coffee maker the first one lasted 5 years.
It makes good coffee day and nite It stay's on 24 hours a day and nite.
Perfect for the price, will recommend this item to my family and friends. Always visit Sears for my purchase before looking other places. Always find good products for the price.
