Not a good coffee maker

byrfleck2 Jun 18, 2009

Pros Thermal carafe, good brew rate, attractive stylling.
Cons Top of carafe, burnt plastic taste, low temperature coffee.
Recommended it? No

The thermal carafe is a good idea, but the top can be tricky to screw in just right. The coffee maker made about ten good cups before it started producing a strange burnt plastic taste. I also noticed low temperature coffee, which I had to reheat after adding cold milk. I wish I could return it to... Read full review »

Just a so-so coffee maker

Pros Carafe means no warming plate required to bake the coffee.
Cons Water never gets hot enough, coffee is only warm.
Recommended it? No

Bought this a week ago, and have been disappointed. The thermal carafe seemed like a good idea, vs. the warming plate. Unfortunately, on this machine, the coffee doesn't even come out hot -- just very warm -- so it's cold from the first cup to the last. The temperature at which you brew coffee is...
