I’ve waited about three months to review this coffee maker. I really like it! I brew about 4 “cups” at a time (I think one cup is about 6oz?) and it brews in less than 5 minutes. The biggest reasons I picked this coffee maker out of the dozens I looked at and read reviews for were because it’s programmable, it’s Mr. Coffee brand and it has an auto shut-off. Plus the reviews are pretty good.
Once I learned to make sure the basket was in correctly, I was golden! (There was one morning right after purchase that I brewed coffee right into my counter, but that was definitely user error—check out my photos to see how to place the basket in the top.) The “back” label on the basket is hard to see, I didn’t notice it until a couple days in!
My only big “complaint” is that I don’t taste a noticeable difference in the “strong” brew strength. I also notice it doesn’t brew less, so I’m not sure how it’s considered stronger.
My favorite features after using it every morning for about three months is the programmable feature, the auto shut off (though I wish it was more like 3 hours and not 2), the pause to pour (pauses mid brew when you pull out the carafe), the digital display and the quick brew time. I wish the clock were back lit but that’s not a deal breaker.
I would buy this again as long as it lasts! And I’ll come back to update my review if something changes!
