Negative Product Points

Water, water everywhere! The messiest coffemaker I've ever used.

Detailed Commentary

What a disappointment.

Ten years ago, I brought a WestBend electric coffee maker for about $15. It worked like a dream until I broke the carafe earlier this year. So, given my very positive experience with my cheap little WestBend, I thought I didnít need to spend a lot of money to get a decent coffee maker.

Enter the Mr. Coffee 12 Cup Programmable Coffee Maker (Model: DRX20), approximately $30. It looks fine, has auto shut-off, and is programmable. So far, so good Ė until you actually make the coffee. I have never seen such a mess. No matter how careful you are, you will wind up with water everywhere. Today was the final straw. When I pulled the pot away to pour my coffee (the brewing had stopped), water poured out of the basket onto the hotplate. Poured. POURED. Iíve never seen anything like it. Isnít that what the little toggle piece is for at the bottom of the basket? This was the culmination of a series of minor messes with this coffee maker and certainly the biggest mess to date.

Another negative of this product is that probably 30% of the pots Iíve brewed have been full of grounds. Iíve been making coffee for a long time and know how to put the filter in correctly. But for whatever reason, this coffee maker causes the filter to fold in on itself during the brewing and you will wind up with a pot of coffee you have to pour down the sink.

Donít waste your money on this product. Spend $30-40 more and get a first-rate coffee maker. I wish I had. I started to give this one to a charity shop, but I think itís just going in the trash.

Buying Experience

I have not contacted the vendor or manufacturer. We bought it at Target or some big box retailer. For $30, it's not worth it to fight it out with Mr. Coffee.
