Reviews around product (4.08 of 5)

  • I did receive this product free for testing purposes, but I would recommend it to a friend.
  • OXO’s pricey coffee products are not good quality and the company offers sub-par customer support.
  • I don't understand why they are advertising that you can select 2-4 or 5-9 even though it brews the entire tank every time...this product is a waste of money and will be returned soon.
  • I would highly recommend this product that I was given to me for free for testing purposes!
  • Given 4 stars instead of 5 because one very annoying product flaw: when you remove the carafe from it's holder, coffee always drips down requiring daily cleanup and causing coffee to get on the bottom of the carafe when it is re-placed.

  • I prize a machine that makes great coffee with a minimal daily time investment.

Reviews around brew (3.95 of 5)

  • An amazing coffee maker that's simple to use, with very consistent brewing results
  • It brews a great cup of coffee, is easy to use, easy to clean up, and fairly quiet when brewing.
  • Thermal carafe works well - to retain heat in the coffee one should temper the pot with boiling water prior to brewing.
  • The ball mechanism on the bottom of the brew basket it drippy, so you have to wipe it up every time you use the carafe.
  • During brewing, or after brewing when the brew basket lid is opened, a little hot water leaks out of the water bridge, and the large open passage between the basket and tank is meant to drain this bit of water back into the tank instead of letting it go into the pot.

Reviews around pot (3.93 of 5)

  • we're going on our second month now without a single bad pot of coffee.
  • It makes a crappy 2-cup pot of coffee - the coffee only gets lukewarm
  • This has not happened to me, because I drain the pot every day after the coffee perks
  • Really love this pot, makes great-tasting coffee and very easy to operate.
  • Quickly, quietly, and evenly brews a great pot of coffee.

Reviews around water (3.81 of 5)

  • The hot water is then dispersed through the showerhead, through the brew basket, and into the carafe.
  • I solve some of this problem by running hot water in the carafe for several minutes before brewing coffee.
  • Not only that, we have hard water and the deposits now are inside and can't be cleaned by hand.
  • I think like my water was too hot at 210.This machine like makes a better tasting coffee
  • Use fresh cold water, filtered if there is too much calcium in it

Reviews around oxo (3.79 of 5)

  • My old Delonghi measured 178deg brew water, and a cheap-o coffee maker I was temporarily using measured 182deg.
  • Also, I should point out that I received this OXO coffee maker free for testing purposes
  • I have been using the OXO On 9 Cup Coffee Maker for about a month now, and I do really like this coffee maker

Reviews around design (3.63 of 5)

  • I also don't like the installation design of the stopper into the carafe.
  • I loved the design, features and quality of coffee that the machine produced
  • I love the sleek design and features on the coffee maker
  • and I really like the design of the coffee maker itself!
  • This valve should stop the flow of coffee when the pot is removed from the base, but due to poor design and a weak spring, it rarely closes and coffee runs out of the cone and onto the base.

Reviews around base (3.53 of 5)

  • At the point it completes the cycle, the coffee made by this machine is certainly as good as, if not perceptibly better than that of the Bonavita or Capresso; but the coffee keeps better in the caraffe, it pours into the cup better, and it is much less susceptible to filter handling errors that result in rivers of hot coffee running across the counters, down the cabinets, and onto the floor.
  • My only complaint is the water/condensation that stays in where you pour the water as well as under the lid it sort of gets trapped under that rubber piece which makes me worried about mildew
  • I have tried it with grinding my own beans, as well as, with grounds and the coffee is amazing
  • This tastes as good as, if not better than, the clever coffee method and is much faster and easier to make
  • We verified the water was the proper temperature, and we simply don't know exactly WHY the coffee isn't tasting as good as it could, but we've decided to return this and go with a less expensive option

Reviews around plastic (3.10 of 5)

  • This machine makes excellent coffee but the machine is truly cheap plastic.
  • I have tried it with grinding my own beans, as well as, with grounds and the coffee is amazing
  • Between the cheap ABS plastic, Intertek listing, and loose, rattly buttons the construction does not inspire confidence
  • We verified the water was the proper temperature, and we simply don't know exactly WHY the coffee isn't tasting as good as it could, but we've decided to return this and go with a less expensive option
  • but I absolutely did not want a hunk of cheap plastic sitting on my kitchen counter

Reviews around roast (2.74 of 5)

  • The "shower head" evenly saturates the coffee grounds and the micro processor takes care of the pump timing for a nice slow roast.
  • We've experimented with dark and medium roasts from a variety of roasters and the coffee is excellent.
  • This tastes as good as, if not better than, the clever coffee method and is much faster and easier to make
  • we have started roasting our own beans and this take a while to get the roast down right.

Reviews around bean (2.71 of 5)

  • (I do buy good beans and grind in a burr grinder just before use.)
  • If you grind you own coffee beans this coffee maker is simply outstanding.
  • We are fairly fussy coffee drinkers who get fresh roasted beans, grind just before use, etc.
  • I use fresh beans ground in my burr grinder and I like my coffee fairly strong with smooth taste
  • Our secret to great coffee is good beans (freshly ground with proper fineness at brewing time) and good water

Reviews around time (2.39 of 5)

  • I've gotten a compliment on it every time someone comes into my kitchen
  • We HAVE only had it a short time and so far we love it.
  • It is easy to setup and program and the coffee it brews is consistent every time!
  • But to open either the water refill top, or to access the brew basket to insert a filer and coffee, I need to pull the coffeemaker each time to the edge of the countertop, so that it can clear the cabinets above
  • Easy to use, makes good coffee, and the carafe keeps it warm a good long time (especially if you preheat it but even if you don't)

Reviews around spring (1.90 of 5)

  • The coffee carafe itself keeps the brewed coffee warm for quite a bit if you want to take it off the machine and bring it to a table or desk (if you work from home, as I
  • The spring is not strong enough on the shutoff valve and does not seal shut when the carafe is removed after it finishes making a pot
  • ; it almost seems like the spring is rusty or something
  • Very weak spring and too much friction keep the plunger from returning to a closed position when pot is removed.
  • There seems to be a weak spring in the stopper and it doesn't function as it should

  • My old Delonghi measured 178deg brew water, and a cheap-o coffee maker I was temporarily using measured 182deg.
  • Just run my water through my coffee grinds and let's go
  • the first thing about how good the coffee is, is about the ratio of coffee grinds to water
  • Ah, science is a harsh mistress!I tasted a marked difference between the two brews, and I favored the brew from the Oxo-Kalita chimera at both the 165 F serving temperature and the non-scalding 130 F temperature I prefer when I'm not paying attention

Reviews around degree (1.54 of 5)

  • a few degrees hotter than
  • Don’t forget, opening the carafe in order for me to stick the thermometer and leaving a crack open will lose couple degrees.
  • (200/201 F degree, etc), couple degrees higher than the 197.6 to compensate any heat lost in the brewing process
  • Given that the OXO specifically says it holds water at the optimal temperature (197.6-204.8 Degrees F) for coffee, it suggests that yes, boiling hot water (212 degrees F) is much too hot for a great cup of coffee.
  • This OXO, however, is making fantastic coffee and according to my thermometer the water is hitting the grinds at the required 195-205 degrees.

  • I know that leaving coffee in the machine all night is not as good as super fresh ground, but that difference is not enough to have me do it right after waking up ... this OXO is great
  • So happy I did, its so nice waking up to a great brewed pot of coffee even with the coffee being ground the night before
  • but that means you have to grind the night before and let the grounds be exposed to air all night.
