Rated 2 out of 5 by lbaggins76 Always tasted like plastic
While this coffee maker worked every time we used it, and it was very easy to set up and clean, there was always a plasticy taste in every pot. I originally bought this to keep hot water in the kitchen for hot tea (which I drink a lot). I followed the directions of cleaning everything and dumping the first batch. The second batch of water had a plastic taste to it, and even the third batch of water. I figured maybe it was just the water tasting funny, so I made a batch of coffee with filtered water... still plasticy tasting. I'm glad so many people like this product, and my 12-cup coffee maker I already had is a Mr. Coffee and I've never had problems. In fact my old 12-cup coffee maker is like 30 years old and still going strong. I was disappointed that this 4-cup coffee maker didn't meet my expectations at all, it never failed to taste like plastic, no matter what I brewed or what water I used. Needless to say I returned it, and then I found an electric tea kettle, which is awesome for a whole lot more than just tea!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Elviadavila56 This is an Excellent Mr. Coffee Maker
I am very surprise how long this coffee maker has lasted me. I was got it out to use it for 3 days but, I ended up leaving it out. I broke my big coffee maker and I remember I had gotten this one in my B-Day and I just put it away. I thought ah too small. Now I think life saver and I love it. I really love it. Why? It makes a mean cup of coffee just like I love it strong very strong I have had very expensive coffee makers and can never get what I wanted. Now look at this little one tiny one it is so satisfying that I want to get about 5 of them and I am dead serious it makes coffee that my mother would die for. I love it. Every morning and night I look forwards to it and believe me I have one everywhere I know to put one that I am staying long periods of time. Cant say sorry! I am flabbergasted I know you wont believe me but, it taste like old fashion Mexican coffee that no one makes anymore and their is no specific coffee to put in just my Folgers I can not get over it its been 11 months of HAPPINESS I also have the extras in case they start breaking. I LOVE YOU JCPENNEY. YOU MAKE MY WORLD ROCK AND I AM NOT A YOUNG WOMAN I AM JUST AN OLD LADY.

I bought this to use at work where there are only two of us and it is the perfect size. It makes a good cup of coffee and I like it better than the single serve type coffees.

Rated 4 out of 5 by briano52 Great Little Machine!!
I have had this little machine for 4 years now. I use it about 3-5 days per week. It still brews coffee that tastes great and comes out at the proper serving temperature, hot but not burning your mouth. When you pour into a ceramic mug and add a little cream the temperature is perfect to drink right away. If you put the coffee into a stainless steel insulated mug, you will have too wait awhile before it cools down to drinking temperature. I used to preheat my insulated travel mugs but no more if I want to drink right away. If I want to drive a few miles before drinking the coffee I will still preheat the mug. The machine itself works as well now as the day it was new. The only issue is that the heat plate under the carafe has rusted a bit. It still functions fine and this is a cosmetic defect that take this great little machine from 5 stars down to 4. Nevertheless, I would buy this again, it is a fantastic performer for the very low price. The gold tone filter performs flawlessly and saves you a bunch in buying paper filters.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Eboni B Great little coffee maker!
Ive had this over a year now. Had a 12 cup maker in my office on my desk and wanted a smaller coffee maker which would take up less space. This was perfect! I actually ended up giving away my large coffee maker to a friend and kept this one as it's great to make a fast, fresh cup when I need to over having a cup of stale coffee.
I also have actually traveled with this several times when I wont have access to a kitchen to boil water for the 2 cup French press I normally pack; carafe in my purse (my purses are HUGE!) and the unit in my rolling luggage or knapsack. It's small size and light weight make it perfect for my lifestyle.
It's also brilliant for loose teas! And I like that it comes with a built in filter which is a breeze to clean. Well worth the price. My unit has paid for itself several times over!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Secr8shopper Nice for individual coffee drinker
I really like this coffee maker. I am usually the only one drinking coffee in the morning, and with a 12 cups maker I end up wasting a decent amount of coffee. I buy expensive coffee, so the waste really adds up. I debated getting a single serve maker, but I usually drink 4 cups anyways.Instead of a pricey single serve system,I get hot fresh coffee, no waste, easy clean up, and this is built just like a sturdy bigger model. And....it's cute! If you want to save money, do not get those pricey single serve machines, invest in one of these and buy some shoes with the saved cash. :)
