Beautiful Coffee Maker- Horrible Operation

bycherokeebabe Oct 1, 2010
5 Helpfuls 6 Helpfuls Was this review helpful?
Pros Beautiful design.
Cons Drips when removing the pot during operation. The Carafe drips too.
Recommended it? No

I used this Coffee maker for about 2 weeks then took it back. I had even burned myself when trying to get a cup of coffee during operation even though it has pause n serve. The maker continues to drip. I tried to wipe the drip off the warmer and got another drip on the top of my hand. Also the... Read full review »


It's nothing special

Pros Easy to Use, Fast Brewing, Great Design
Recommended it? Yes

This product is ok.  There isn't anything special about it.  It does just that, make coffee.  However, it does have a nice design.  For the price, you can't complain. Read full review »


Brews a good cup of coffee.

Pros Durable brews well.
Cons Some dripping.
Recommended it? Yes

This coffee maker is quite inexpensive and convenient. I bought it for my dorm and has been working with no problems for the past three years. The automatic shut off works great too. It is a little on the slow side and tends to drip if you dont turn it off for a few seconds, but other than that it... Read full review »


Another Disappointing Mr. Coffee

byelzora Jan 3, 2009

Pros Programmable feature works great, automatic shut off works nicely, handsome looking
Cons Brews loud & slow.  Water drips into reservoir when the lid is lifted.  Short cord.
Recommended it? No

Ironically, my daughter just purchased this new TFX23 12 Cup Mr. Coffee Maker (specifically because we were coming to visit), and we had just purchased a very similar model about a month ago.  It is uncanny how much alike these two different models are.  I don't care for either one of...

Mr. Coffee TFX20 / TFX23 12-Cup Coffee Maker. This is just not good!

bywerd32 Dec 18, 2008

Pros Has the basic buttons for programming and sleeker design. 
Cons The pot itself is flawed.  Coffee runs down the front while pouring. Big Mess!
Recommended it? No

When our old and reliable basic Mr Coffee died we automatically went in search for anther one.  We found this one on sale and it seemed like a nice upgrade to the old model. The pause feature just doesn't work well.  We stopped using this because the coffee still drips out onto the warming plate... Read full review »

Recommended it? Yes

Note: Bottom of unit says, "Sunbeam Products", Model TFX20 (although the front of the unit says "Mr. Coffee").

Works great, very inexpensive. Hot plate started peeling after 2 years but I called the company and they sent me an entire new coffee maker at no charge to me!! Couldn't believe... Read full review »

Pros Two-hour auto shut-off.
Cons Everything else! Features do NOT work!
Recommended it? No

I'll admit it: There are some things I buy cheaply, such as this coffee pot. I bought it on sale for $30 after reading the features on the side of the box. Mr. Coffee makes this coffee pot sound quite nice! Believe me, it isn't.

I have the one in white, although it also comes in black. It... Read full review »

Pros I have never had a bad cup of coffee from this machine.
Cons The features which lured me to this machine either don't work or are useless.
Recommended it? Yes

I purchased a 12 cup Mr. Coffee machine when my previous under the cabinet machine croaked. I did not want another under the cabinet machine as my kitchen cabinets needed refinishing due to the steam the old coffee maker caused. Through word of mouth Mr. Coffee was recommended so I thought I'd try... Read full review »


Mr. Coffee TFX20 / TFX23 12-Cup Coffee Maker ... I HATE IT!

Pros Inexpensive; Glass carafe?
Cons Read them all!

I bought Mr. Coffee TFX20 / TFX23 12-Cup Coffee Maker in black when my beloved stainless carafe coffee maker by Mr Coffee died a very slow death. At the time I couldn't find anything better, and I was desperate. That being said......

Pros None. Don't waste your money
Cons On-off switches stiff & break, carafe makes a mess when you pour, brewing is slow.
Recommended it? No

My husband bought this coffee maker at Target, and from day one I hated it. It has a hole in the back of the reservoir so you won't "over fill"-- I have never had a problem doing that so I don't know why they would put that feature on, because what happens instead is you get water all over your...

Pros Good Price.
Cons Overhyped name brand "quality."
Recommended it? No

I was very excited in the beginning to get my new Mr Coffee TFX-23. Then came the first pot. For some odd reason, the coffee overflowed from the filter. I figured too many grounds but honestly, I did not add any more than I usually did with my last coffeemaker. I finally figured the "attitude" of... Read full review »


Mr. Coffee Gives Us Mr. Headache

Pros As per Mr. Coffee's reputation, makes a great cup-o-Joe!
Cons Caraffe is messy, pot "leaks" water out the back; takes TOO LONG TO BREW!!

Who says you can't get two for the price of one? We did, when I decided to purchase this model of the Mr. Coffee Coffeemaker. Let me start from the beginning:
Our previous coffeemaker died about 3 months ago. I hopped on the internet and looked around for what appeared to be the "best price"... Read full review »

Pros The looks.
Cons Just about everything.
Recommended it? No

I had a cheap $15.00 coffee maker before and it filled 2-3 times faster than this thing. It takes a good 20 minutes to a half-hour to fill the pot on this coffee maker!! Unless I set the timer to brew before I get up, but that doesn't help when I go through 2-3 pots of coffee a day!!

Terrible Coffeemaker

Pros Nice design, coffee is decent, inexpensive.
Cons On/off switch is awful, coffee drips.
Recommended it? No

When our old, dependable 12 cup Mr. Coffee maker finally died, I naturally wanted to replace it with a comparable Mr. Coffee model. This visually stunning model caught my eye, which just shows you that looks aren't everything. It drips all over the place both when pouring from the carafe and when... Read full review »


Really bad design - on/off buttons are terrible!

Pros It is pretty.
Cons Grounds in the brew; horrible on/off buttons; drippy porta-basket
Recommended it? No

When our wonderful 8 year old Krups gave out earlier this year, we decided not to shell out $80 to replace it with another higher-end model. We found the most reasonable programmable we could get from a reputable maker. The $29 price-point at Target was the main draw. Big mistake.

Designer buttons, but maybe designed for ET's finger?

Pros The TFX23 makes a lot of good coffee.
Cons Minor shortcomings and wretched ON/OFF control will make you hate the TFX23.

I bought my Mr. Coffee TFX23 when I moved into my new home about 14 months ago, and have used it every morning (apart from my prolonged overseas absences) since then. I have to use it every morning, because I can't get my heart started without 3 big mugs of heavy duty French Roast, and it's the... Read full review »

Pros Stylish, can use either permanent filter or disposables. Auto timer,2 hour shut off.
Cons Seems slow filling. Occasional drips on warmer when pot is removed.
Recommended it? Yes

I've discovered that finding a black coffee maker with a timer in my town for under $50 is almost like looking for a needle in a hay stack. I wanted black because it seems the white ones just stain too easily and I was hoping to disguise that a bit.
I purchased this 12 cup maker at Kmart for... Read full review »
