Reviews around light (4.52 of 5)

  • Did 2 clean cycles with vinegar and water and ran fresh water through and the light keeps coming on, obviously a defect and will be sending it back !
  • After a short period of use, the clean light comes on on the coffee pot
  • When the cleaning light comes on, you cannot use the timer.
  • There is no way to dim the incredibly bright blue light on the display which will illuminate a very large kitchen.
  • Maybe it is my water but this pot's clean light comes on almost once a

Reviews around feature (4.30 of 5)

  • very nice coffee maker, I really like it and all the features.
  • Some people might dig that feature, but I really hate it, as I need complete and total silence in the morning, until after I've had my first cup of coffee
  • Makes a great cup of coffee, love the auto program feature!
  • A couple of awkward design features: compartment to pour water into is narrow and doesn’t easily allow you to completely empty the water in the carafe and the top of the carafe snaps on and off, rather than being on a hinge.
  • In other words, the auto-off feature doesn't work, the bold feature doesn't work, the cup selector doesn't work - none of the features work if the pot is brewing or left on

Reviews around coffeemaker (4.25 of 5)

  • We got tried of racing all over for less expensive K-cups
  • I must love this coffeemaker since this is my third one, UNFORTUNATELY , in four years!!!
  • Other than that it brews coffee very well and is a fabulous coffeemaker.
  • I wish the stainless felt more substantial and that the black stainless was as dark as in the photo - I feel I paid extra for something that isn't what it is advertised to be
  • LOVE the LavAzza Crema e Gusto Ground Coffee 8.80 oz (Pack of 8)

Reviews around plate (4.21 of 5)

  • Good coffee maker, just wish the hot plate would stay on longer
  • I had to order the one I had with a hot plate to keep coffee hot.
  • Coffee is not consistently but the hot plate is rusty already.
  • Coffee is hot when it comes out and the warming plate keeps it that way
  • Six months and the warming plate died, after modest once-a-day usage

Reviews around taste (3.88 of 5)

  • Then over the next 6 months I had to deal with a burnt plastic taste from my coffee
  • Makes a great tasting coffee and keeps the coffee hot up to 4 hours.
  • Most importantly though – it makes great tasting coffee
  • I normally use spring water to make my coffee as I very much dislike the taste and content of tap
  • Brews good coffee and keeps it hot without giving it the bitter taste that other machines do

Reviews around machine (3.70 of 5)

  • The the strong brew option and this machine keeps your coffee HOT

Reviews around carafe (3.46 of 5)

  • I love the thermal carafe, I love the taste of the coffee
  • coffee not brewed consistently hot and the carafe doesn't keep coffee as hot as it should
  • Super cheap glass carafe comes with this coffee make and not easy to find a replacement.
  • The thermal carafe itself has a serious design flaw that makes it impossible to pour water or coffee out of it without at least seriously dripping, and most often splattering liquid outside of the target container.
  • The coffee tastes great, the carafe keeps the coffee hot, the programming is wonderful

  • Original purchase price for fairly expensive but cheaply made defective product
  • This is actually a very efficient product makes a good cup of coffee according to my parents who love coffee
  • We called amazon and told them we wanted to return our defective product.

Reviews around brew (3.36 of 5)

  • but you need to add additional coffee to compensate or your brew will be weak even if you use the bold setting
  • My old coffee maker was a 10 cup and I have found that I can use the same amount of beans with 12 cups and the bold setting for a little stronger brew.
  • The water filter option is a nice plus, and the "bold" brew setting seems to slow the brewing a bit to give steamy water more time to absorb coffee favor while brewing
  • The water filter option is a nice plus, and the "bold" brew setting seems to slow the brewing a bit to give steamy water more time to absorb coffee favor while brewing
  • It would make a loud clicking noise while brewing and would only brew half a pot when we would put a whole pot of water in to be brewed, leaving the water compartment half filled

Reviews around water tank (2.62 of 5)

  • I did not purchase this from Amazon (which I love) but am posting this review here, as well as on my purchase site, to warn the public.
  • Also, when are these coffee makers going to start using a removable water tank
  • Also, the water tank opening is very narrow and it’s dificult to fill it with water from the problematic carafe
  • However... filling the water tank is very cumbersome, and when filling, the carafe leaks every time
  • Very disappointed in this coffee maker .. water tank started leaking after about 6 mts after purchase

Reviews around bean (2.33 of 5)

  • love having coffee made with freshly ground beans daily
  • I did not purchase this from Amazon (which I love) but am posting this review here, as well as on my purchase site, to warn the public.
  • It's amazing, it's like the difference between stale coffee and just ground beans
  • Bottom line, you will be very satisfied with your first cup of coffee regarding the coffee flavor and temp, as well as the tight footprint of this maker on your counter top!
  • After each fill, it is necessary to wipe up the spilled water from the side of the unit, as well as from the counter top

Reviews around beep (2.23 of 5)

  • LOVE the LavAzza Crema e Gusto Ground Coffee 8.80 oz (Pack of 8)
  • Not the soft beep of days past
  • That's one bright LED light!You can turn off the tone (5 loud beeps when the coffee is done) if you don't care for the beep noise
  • I can't seem to fix the LOUD beep or the grumbling and spluttering
  • Second, the button to turn the "coffee is ready" beep on and off is waaaaay too easy to push, and at the top of the front of the machine,

Reviews around coffee grind (1.87 of 5)

Reviews around sound (1.63 of 5)

  • good pot o coffee, hard to dump water into the small tank opening without spilling the last amount of water in the carafe
  • For a couple months now, the coffee maker makes an incredibly loud "clunking" sound as it brews
  • I know that sounds silly, but when being used to having to pour with your right hand and trying to see the cup measurements, it so much easier.
  • Set it up the night before and wake up to the smell of coffee, or it's loud beeping sound that it makes when it's out of water
  • I informed the manufacturer and they sent a new one (but I had to pay a significant shipping and service fee), but the new one makes the same loud sound

Reviews around noise (1.61 of 5)

  • LOVE the LavAzza Crema e Gusto Ground Coffee 8.80 oz (Pack of 8)
  • Hit the power button to use a manual "on" and it made half a pot, started making strange noises and began leaking water all over the counter.
  • Only downside is it does make a few weird loud noises once in awhile.
  • To recap: Good features, hot coffee, timer, large carafe, spilling water, odd noises

  • I just ordered a less expensive Mr. Coffee to replace this one.
