Reviews around option (4.69 of 5)

  • After brewing (the is the first time using this option) still leaked water onto the countertop mind you, pull the carafe out and the bottom of the carafe shattered spilling nice hot coffee all over the place
  • I love the option to brew either a pot or a single serve cup up to 14oz
  • We love the option of making a single cup, say, of decaf while the pot still has regular coffee
  • So far I love & the versatility of having the option for a pot or a cup of coffee
  • BUT, the product was improperly packed such that the carafe was sitting unsecured in the unit and fell off (and broke) as I lifted it from the box with both hands for the first time.

Reviews around feature (4.68 of 5)

  • Single serve feature is great and no waste like a kurig.
  • Works great love the single serving feature with my own coffee
  • and I'm really disappointed because I bought this brewer because of the Single Serve feature, and spent a lot of money bringing it to Colombia and buying the Perfect Pod Maker, for nothing because the single serve feature is useless for me
  • Makes a great pot of coffee and the single cup option is a nice feature.
  • I love the feature of being able to brew a full pot or a single cup and both are programmable

Reviews around maker (4.67 of 5)

  • Grew tired of buying the more expensive Cuisinart Coffee makers that lasted only a few years and did not even make hot coffee.
  • I like the fact that the single-serve side has a permanent coffee filter built in that can be used with ground coffee instead of expensive K-cups.
  • Love this coffee maker, we use the single cup side more than we thought we would
  • I love this coffee maker, especially the single serve side!!!
  • Maybe is just me, but I definitely recommend this coffee maker.

Reviews around price (4.66 of 5)

  • Wanted a dual coffee maker but hate the price of k-cups and machines that use them
  • BUT, the product was improperly packed such that the carafe was sitting unsecured in the unit and fell off (and broke) as I lifted it from the box with both hands for the first time.
  • It also didn't hurt that it was such a reasonable price.
  • I decided to go with a different brand because I kind of missed having the option to brew a pot and not wanting to waste a lot of money and further damage the environment by buying k-cups, I wanted to go with a podless system as those refillable k-cups are a real mess and pain
  • This is a high class fancy coffee maker for a great price !!

Reviews around fact (4.45 of 5)

  • Very easy to use and love the fact that I have a choice to make a single cup if needed.
  • I have a Keurig but hated the fact that you could never drain the water reservoir, and since my family size coffee maker finally died on me, I was in the market for a new coffee machine
  • n’t had one single issue, still running strong.
  • I love the fact that I can make a regular cup of coffee or I can make it bold with the same amount of grounds
  • Love the fact that you can brew a single cup, a travel cup, or a full pot.

Reviews around bean (2.54 of 5)

  • This coffee maker heats the water to a temperature sufficient for good extraction from finely ground beans
  • We found that the single serve side makes a very weak brew, even with the freshest, boldest beans we can find and the machine set to bold
  • I wanted to have the ability to use fresh ground beans, and this worked out great
  • He doesn't care for the Kerig machine and would rather grind his own coffee beans and use this machine.
  • If you know you're ready for a coffee by 6:47 AM to make it to work on time and still enjoy the bean

  • It arrived as a dirty machine covered in coffee grinds and water spots
  • Like R E
  • If you are looking for a machine that uses K-Cups, this is NOT the one you want, but if you are willing to work with water, filters and regular coffee grinds, this is the machine for you.
  • It also sprayed the coffee grinds all over our coffee bar area.

Reviews around brand (1.95 of 5)

  • Great coffee pot single serve works as well as
  • It uses some weird brand I've never heard of or you can use your own ground coffee (which you can already do in the main carafe).
  • I'm wasn't sure I'd like this product because I usually buy brands like Cuisinart or Krups but after seeing how they don't make coffee makers to last more than a few years anymore, I decided to try a cheaper brand
  • No need for the expensive brands if you really like your coffee.

Reviews around ground (1.88 of 5)

  • So I tried using the filters for our old pot and brewed a grounds-free pot of coffee
  • The only drawback; loose grounds in the single serve side getting in the cup
  • Just dump out the old grounds, swish it under the faucet, pour in the fresh grounds, and brew
  • I had a good, strong cup of coffee and no grounds in my cup
  • Unfortunately, there aren't a lot of choices for buying the pods, but you can also brew a single cup with just loose coffee grounds.

Reviews around bite (1.88 of 5)

  • My husband is a bit messy in the morning & one of the issues we had with our old pot, was that the water & the basket where in the same area, so when he was putting grounds in in the morning, he would get grounds all over inside of the pot including the water reservoir causing the pump to get clogged
  • I do over fill the water tank a bit to get a full 12 cups or it brews less
  • My only complaint would be that it is a bit too slow when brewing
  • I was a bit confused and maybe concerned due to those that said the water for the one cup just ran through when it was poured in.
  • A bit misleading, but I found another that fit, but would have liked the matching one.

Reviews around water tank (1.83 of 5)

  • Either coffee in a pot or k pods, since they both share the same water tank.
  • A bonus no expensive k cups or figuring why the keurig is not working again
  • (5) Easy access to water tank without the water running down the back, which the Cuisinart did
  • The single serve side is designed to be able to use with the coffee pods (The round pods of grounds, kind of like what you would see in a hotel, not the K-Cups that a Keurig) as well as just being able to place a scoop or two into the mini basket
  • I do over fill the water tank a bit to get a full 12 cups or it brews less

Reviews around plastic (1.78 of 5)

  • This appliance gives a strong hot plastic taste and odor to coffee at least 2 times a week even after multiple cleanings with white vinegar and also baking soda and water
  • The coffee had a burnt plastic taste that would make you gag and a nasty smell
  • It's liberating to not use wasteful plastic k-cups anymore
  • Single side doesn’t seem to have the burned plastic problem
  • Has the convenience of a kuerig without the wasteful plastic cups

  • Saving a lot of money not using the expensive K-Cups anymore.
  • Another great feature of the single brew is that it doesn't use the expensive k-cups
  • The main being the kcups are not recyclable unless you rip the insides out.
  • I like the fact that the single-serve side has a permanent coffee filter built in that can be used with ground coffee instead of expensive K-cups.

Reviews around roast (1.38 of 5)
