Cheap and durable

Pros:Just a basic coffee maker that keeps on working.

Cons:Carafe and sneak-a-cup drip a bit.

The Bottom Line: A much better value than the other cheap coffeemakers. When this one finally croaks, I'm buying another just like it.


This coffee maker works fine for me. I've had it for four years now. That's a record for me. I used to go through two or three a year, and man, did I get some stinkers. One clogged up and overflowed on the counter, one actually shorted out and could have shocked me, one had a dead computer, one insulated carafe disintegrated, and one just slopped all over when pouring. So for me, a coffeemaker that WORKS is a rarity. I'm counting my blessings and drinking nice hot coffee everyday.
I really have no quibbles with the basic function of this coffee maker. No timers, no buttons, just a simple power switch. No grinders, no settings, just drop in a filter full of coffee and go.
One thing that I have learned now that I have a coffee maker that's lived long enough- Coffee maker maintenance. A couple times a year, I pull off the drip head (the part that drips the hot water onto the grounds) and soak it in CLR till it is all unclogged. Every now and then, I run a cycle of vinegar water, then two cycles of plain water to rinse it out. I have also noticed that the filter basket must be kept clean if you expect to have any chance at sneaking a cup without a lot of leakage. Coffee grounds get stuck in the little spring-loaded gasket, propping open the seal and allowing leaks. If that spring loaded thing is carefully cleaned, the basket won't leak when you pull out the carafe. But really, I'm not in that much of a hurry for my coffee and never minded waiting for the pot to be ready.
I do agree with the other reviewers that this pot doesn't make the hottest coffee. I don't use much cream, so it comes out at just the right temp for me.
