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 jeddaj Great little coffe pot!
This was a replacement for the previous model, which I had owned for years. It is the perfect size for one person! The only thing I don't like about it: There is a hole in the back at the top of the water container which my old model did not have. If I put more than exactly 4 cups of water (measured by the accompanying carafe) in, it spills out the back of the coffee pot and runs all over my countertop. Word of caution!! Measure the water carefully or you'll have a big mess to clean up! Other than this one issue (Why in the world did they put a hole there????) the coffee pot works beautifully and is the perfect size for what I need.

I am happy to say that the coffee maker is quite nice and refreshing. I was afraid that the new maker would have changed things and am happy to say the changes are minimal and all for the good. The new Coffee maker fits just fine where the old one was. This size is just right for our use.
