Original review: July 14, 2017

I like that Mr. Coffee is traditional which makes it simple to use. It's also lasted quite a while. It also allows for a large brew by letting me brew an entire 12 c pot. However, it isn't working as well as it used to. It takes quite a while to brew a pot of coffee and it leaks a lot. I also sometimes wish I could brew just one cup at a time rather than an entire pot.

The best feature in the coffee machine is that it doesn't really take long to heat up the coffee and make it, unlike other coffee companies or brands take usually half an hour. Mine takes about 10 to 15 minutes. But it would be nice if they can add another feature to make tea. I would love it if my coffee made tea and coffee at the same time.

My coffee maker is very simple to use and if it were not I would not be able to operate it. All I have to do is put the filter in the basket, put the coffee in the basket. I then pour the water in the well, push the on button and walla coffee. It meets my needs and expectations. Also, I like Mr. Coffee because it only makes 2 cups of coffee at a time and this is what I drink in the morning. If I want another in the afternoon I am not throwing any out but have fresh coffee. But I would improve on the overall makeup of the coffee maker though. I find it difficult to clean. The well is not wide enough for my hand and the dish rag. I also would like it if I could get another in a different color, perhaps red. But I like it because it is easy to find a new pot when I break the one I now have.

Mr. Coffee is very easy to use and it functions the way it is supposed to. I am not into fancy gadgets just for a good cup of coffee. Basics work best for me. Not that I wouldn't try something different. But I won't buy a white Mr. Coffee again, because you can't get the coffee stains off it no matter what you do. If I had bought a black one, it would have been so much better so the stains didn't show. Other than that I love the pause and serve feature of the coffee maker. It is great to be able to pour it when you want to and not have to wait. I the small cup size too. It makes 4 cups instead of 12. Good coffee overall.

It has a clock, a delayed start and an automatic turn off. I can awaken to the smell of coffee being brewed automatically in the morning and if I have to go somewhere, I don't have to worry about whether I turned the coffee maker off. It will do that automatically. It has everything I need in a coffee maker. The only thing it does sometimes is to run over. The filters seem to fold over while brewing and this makes the coffee over flow. Other than that this coffee maker is very simple to use. It meets my needs and expectations. I just need the on and off button, a clock, a delayed brewing function and an automatic turn off in case I forget to turn it off.

I like everything about Mr. Coffee. They make a good coffee maker. I have had it for a while now and it works just fine. It makes a good cup of coffee every time. It has a time set to start and that is very nice to have. I can start it in the morning when I get up and in a few minutes it’s ready. When I need to replace it, I will replace it with the same type and brand.

Original review: July 8, 2017

Our very first purchase lasted 2 years. Every purchase after that has lasted at maximum 6 months and one replacement unit failed upon first use due to leaking. Regardless of cleaning coffeemaker generally overheats the water during brewing and results in nothing more than steam. Mr. Coffee customer service is excellent in that they replace coffeemaker with relative ease. We have been through at least 6 replacements and although replacements are easily obtainable we are switching to a different brand. Reliability issues are certainly the main issue with this coffeemaker. The process of replacement is getting very tiresome and it is clear Mr. Coffee has not been able to resolve the issues. Cannot recommend this coffeemaker because of reliability issues.

Coffee Maker Model BVMC-ECX41CP - After about a year, the water to spray head connection on the lid began to leak so much that all the water being sent to the spray head simply recirculated to the reservoir. I still had a dry basket of grounds and a reservoir full of hot water - but no coffee! I was able to push the connection back together a couple of times and make the thing work but it failed the last two days in a row and it is now on its way to Saint Vincent DePaul for someone else to cuss at.

I purchased a Mr. Coffee pot about 3 years ago, it lasted about 6 months and then stopped brewing. Mr. Coffee sent me a new one about 3 weeks later only to have the same thing occur. Needless to say that about every 2 or 3 months it dies and Mr. Coffee will send another, currently waiting for pot number 9 to arrive! Never heard of or dealt with such a thing. Will never buy their brand again, this is ridiculous and very inconvenient! I have bought a different brand and use as a backup while waiting for the others to arrive. Do not purchase Mr. Coffee brand, they are now one of the worst brands ever!

3rd unit purchased in 2 yrs, as this shows we drink lots of coffee. However with each coffee maker failing the same way as the one before has only led me to get upset with how cheaply this units are getting made from this company and just fed up with them. So no calling them and no returning, and no getting upset, BUT will never buy another one of their makers. A new brand, a new look, a new taste, will make a NEW Happy customer for life...

My third Mr. Coffee 12-cup coffee maker in 4 years just suddenly stopped working. The heating elements keep shorting out. My advice - don't buy Mr. Coffee! They are cheaply made. I even bought the better model last time in hopes it wouldn't fail me. It lasted 11 months. It's not even worth my time to send it back or replace it. I bought a cheap store brand because I wanted to research a coffee maker that would actually withstand daily use for more than a year. So, Bunn it is!

I had a Mr. Coffee for 10 years. So when it stopped working I naturally bought another more expensive and very pretty, BVMC-EJX3bwm. It was a dud within 2 mos. The clock stopped and so did the coffee maker. I will not buy another. I paid a lot of money for the coffeepot. So DISAPPOINTED.

Mr. Coffee Model BVMC-VMX37WM - This coffee maker quit working within two months. I bought it because I liked the chrome on it and the carafe plus the basket with filter! I put it in the garage and bought another, but it's still bugging me! Was there a recall on it?

Original review: March 11, 2017

I am so disappointed with Mr.Coffee 10-cup carafe. I thought the thermal carafe would keep the coffee hot, but it makes the coffee and then it starts cooling off. There is nothing thermal about it. I quit setting brew clock because if you get up 30 minutes after it brews it is already not hot and often have to reheat in microwave. It actually brews coffee pretty fast but, I will never buy a Mr. Coffee again and in fact if any asks I will tell them not to buy. I got spoiled with a Cuisinart that really kept the coffee hot. I wasted my money.

I bought several of this product over the years for business & personal use & had huge success w/ them. I bought this model & less than a year it quit working. Didn't keep receipts as I trusted the product. Shame on me. Doubt I buy another of your products.

Mr coffee DRX5 - I got this coffee maker used and it works fine BUT more importantly even though you turn it off if you reach behind and feel the lower back of the coffee maker you will find it is still warm. I mean it is ALWAYS warm. The next morning it is warm. It scares me to death just waiting for the fire. I ALWAYS unplug it when I am done. Has anyone else noticed this???

It doesn't matter if you buy the less expensive or more expensive coffeemakers. They don't last. I have one just slightly over a year which I bought for $60.00. Last night it stopped working. I've bought quite a few Mr. Coffee products. The one that just broke is the last one I'll buy. Don't spend any money on their products.

Original review: Jan. 4, 2017

This is not my 1st Mr. Coffee. The other one stopped functioning after a few months. I have had this one less than 6 months. There is a bunch of leftover moisture/water in the reservoir after each brewing. I've left it open to dry but it is entirely too much water! I've tried drying it with paper towels but I should not have to do this. All I want is a good cup of coffee in the morning. Is that too much to ask? Will NEVER buy a Mr. Coffee product again! They used to be the best but I'm quite sure they are one of, if not the worst!

I purchased a Mr. Coffee pot and thought I had a coffee pot we could turn back on after it shuts off after 2 hours. But come to find out it doesn't turn back on. Instead the only way to turn it back on is to make a new pot of coffee. So if you have almost a full pot you have to waste it. And there is nothing in the manual or on the box that tells you about it. So I can't find the receipt for the first coffee pot, thinking that there is something work I purchase the same coffee pot so I can return the first one. Well, I was wrong. So I call the Mr. Coffee company and I get on the phone with the representative and her words to me is "so what do you want me to do about it." All our coffee pot are set up that way. One I think, if you set your coffee pots up like that don't you think that you would let someone know so they don't get ripped off. You would think.

I have two Mr. Coffee pots and both quit working the same week. The first Mr. Coffee maker I owned worked for maybe 5 years, so when I decided to get a new pot I went with Mr. Coffee again. This time the coffee tasted like plastic. The second pot was bought for us when we got married and we just recently decided to use it. After only a few months of use, my wife and I noticed the clock had stopped working. A few days later the orange light started to dim and the green followed soon after. Now the pot only brews about 2 cups. So we then brought our original coffee maker back out of the closet and after one use it won't turn back on. It's like it's just not plugged in. So that's two totally different models that quit working within two days of each other. I will never purchase another Mr Coffee product!!

I purchased my Mr Coffee FTX41CP, 12-cups at Costco after reading the good reviews in Consumer Reports. Were they ever wrong!! I have owned it for 3 years, took good care of it, cleaned it regularly but all of the sudden it started acting up. First, one morning, the water started leaking at the bottom for no discernible reason then it stopped working. The light still came on when I turned it on but nothing else worked. I am very disappointed! My previous coffeemaker (forgot the brand unfortunately) lasted me over 20 years! I'm also upset with Costco: I thought they checked the quality of their merchandise more closely! No more Mr. Coffee for me!! I am buying Cuisinart.

After calling corporate, and waiting on hold for over 30 min. I spoke to Rita. She was no help, this is the third Mr. Coffee maker they have replaced. But the one I called about the warranty just ran out, it's only been a little more than a year. They are making crap for coffee makers, will never buy this garbage again. You all should be ashamed of the garbage product's you are selling. DO NOT BUY MR COFFEE anything. It's sub-par crap. Will be going to shop from a reliable coffee maker.

I have purchased the carafe Mr Coffee maker twice and everything has been fine until now. Their coffee basket has a little washer that holds the mechanism that controls the flow of water into the carafe. Mine came off at some point and I have been trying to find one online and at the local stores and nothing will work. It has a rubber-like consistency and probably costs less than 2 cents to make. What I find is that you have to purchase the entire basket at $5 and pay at least $5 more for shipping. This is the last MR.Coffee maker that I will ever own. The maker cost around $75 and I now have to put out another $10 to fix it because the $.02 washer cannot be purchased. It has helped me as I look for a different brand of maker in examining what can go wrong and if something does can it be repaired.

After purchasing a Mr. Coffee espresso maker, we performed the ritual cleaning of the well and then made our drinks. There was an odd taste and smell, so I recleaned it but this time, I dumped the water into the sink to see if something was in there. There was a whole bunch of metallic flakes in there, so I filled, swirled, and dumped the water numerous times until it went away. However, it continues to build up the residue every now and then and I have to perform this ritual at least once a week. The melting plastic smell has never gone away.

I had a Mr. Coffee maker for over 20 years and it was great. I bought a new one hoping I would have the same experience. Wrong. The coffee had a plastic taste to it. Cleaned over and over with vinegar. Made sure the unit was dried completely before the next day because I thought the stale water was making it taste bad and still had that horrible taste. So it sits. Mr. Coffee offered me a new one but it was the same coffee maker. I cannot trust this company anymore with a low quality product.

Mr. Coffee jwx31 programmable 12 cup coffee maker - We purchased this coffee maker 11/07/2015. The first one died 4/07/2016, exactly 6 months after we bought it. I first noticed that the coffee was cold, while the pot was turned on. When I tried to brew the next pot it would not brew. I called Mr. Coffee service, and they asked about our cleaning, and brewing habits. I knew I had followed directions, and so did they. They sent me a new one. It took almost 2 weeks to arrive, but I was happy as they had backed up their warranty. On 6/07/2016 the replacement quit heating, and brewing. It lasted 6 weeks. I called Mr. Coffee again, and they are replacing this one too. I have 4 months left on the original warranty. I hope the 3rd coffee maker lasts that long.

My grinder quit in 1st use mid-grind. Coffeemaker only makes half pot at a time. This is the 3rd piece of junk I have purchased. How can your company say you're a top maker. I would never buy another Mr. Coffee product. Your products are overpriced and over-rated for what you get. All your reviews show you lie about your products.

I bought my Mr. Coffee 12 cup coffee maker, it brews 8 cups of coffee per 12 cups of water. It takes 30 minutes or longer to make a few cups. Highly disappointed!!!

I have purchased 3 Mr. Coffee pots and all of them have the plastic taste in them - cannot get it out no matter how much I've tried, I had a terrible headache. The smell was so strong. I hope this isn't harmful. I will not be purchasing any more of their products.
