We expect better design after all these years, Mr Coffee!Nov 06, 2010
This coffee maker is a riot! I was looking for a basic maker with a timer, and I figured Mr Coffee was a time-honored brand. This one had a sneak-a-cup feature, and that was cool. I paid a decent price; it doesn't cost much. But this thing is sort of a mess. First, this has one of those carafes that you can't pour out of without the coffee curling around the lip and making a puddle. Please! How long have we been making coffee makers? Next, the sneak-a-cup feature does work... you can sneak a cup while coffee is making. True, but you'll get water and/or liquid all over the hot pad every time you get a cup, whether coffee is making or not. The sneak-a-cup probe gathers coffee or condensate in it, and it all comes out as soon as you pull the carafe. You can jiggle the carafe around before you pull it out, as a work-around for that. Plus, there is a platform that surrounds the probe, and it gathers lots of condensate, too. So there's lots of liquid hanging around ready to run down when the maker is disturbed, like when you get a cup of coffee. Plus, the big expansive lid on the thing gathers condensate, too, so every now and then this thing just erupts with noise and steam, as if a rainstorm has broken out in there. Oh, I should point out that when that big expansive lid is open, you'll need some headroom, about 21 inches. This thing has to be pulled out from under cabinet overhangs for loading, especially since the water has to be poured into the very back of the unit. I use mine on the cooktop, because it's the only place where I can open the lid up all the way.
For me this is just a kind of funny and mildly irritating coffee maker that makes lots of noise, takes lots of room, and splatters water and coffee all over the place. But hey, it's the cheap one.

Great no-frills coffemakerNov 12, 2010
By Tim M.
The coffeemaker this replaced was very similar if not the same model. The last coffeemaker lasted several years without having any trouble. When the glass carafe finally broke, I discovered it was only about $10 more to get a brand new coffeemaker instead of a replacement carafe. The two features that I like the most about this unit is the fact that you can easily program it the night before to wake up to hot brewed coffee and the automatic shutoff after two hours. For the price and features, it is hard to go wrong.

Worst coffee maker ever! Don't buy this!Mar 26, 2011
By Jere L. Coon
This has to be the worst coffee maker ever manufactured. I have had the four-cup version for years, and have never had any problems with it, but this one is just terrible. It is messy, the pause and brew feature only works part of the time, and we end up with coffee grounds in our brewed coffee more often than not. I'm too disgusted to write a big, long review at this time, but if you just go to the reviews of other dissatisfied customers, they have pretty much covered everything that I could possibly say about this piece of junk. Don't buy it! It hasn't been quite thirty days since we received it, but we didn't keep the original packaging, and I don't know if it is returnable at this point, or not. I'm only glad that we only paid about $25.00 for it. We should have paid more attention to the other bad reviews and passed on this one.

Started Leaking from bottom after six months, or soJun 04, 2011
By Maine Dreaming
How does a company design a coffee maker that leaks from the bottom?
That would have been inconceivable to me before I bought this model
I'll go with another brand as a replacement.
By the way, Sunbeam is involved in the manufacture of this model.

Not as good as the old modelJul 15, 2011
By Karen Hall
We had a similar Mr. Coffee programmable 12-cup coffee pot for at least 8 years till the carafe cracked. The new carafes were the wrong size so I was forced to buy a new model, but it is sadly missing features of the old one like the beeping when coffee is brewed, which we used as an alarm clock. Also, the separate doors for changing the grounds and pouring in water. Plus it steams up and makes a horrible gurgling racket when we try to clean it while still warm. Sure wish we had the old pot back.
