Daffodil "Today is a new gift from God.": Bought the BLACK Melitta Mill & Brew over a year ago (actually longer, but, I can't find my order info. in my Inbox) and it's still the best coffeemaker we've ever bought. So, Melitta--what's up? Our daughter wants one and it seems it's no longer available and I can't find a replacement. If anyone knows, please reply to this review.P.S. I've used a Cuisinart grind and brew and hated making new pots of coffee so much that I'd almost rather do without a 2nd or 3rd cup. The Melitta is so easy, easy, easy!RE: broken parts listed by other reviewersI've been very careful not to push on the mesh of the filter cup and it has held together just fine. I also let the filter cup "fall" into place when I put it back in. I don't force it. I think that if you have a good thing you should be careful with it and not be rough when cleaning it.RE: measurements on the potThe only "con" that I've seen. The markings are NOT accurate according to most coffee mugs. Maybe the markings are based on 6 ounce "cups" of coffee--which no one uses. Therefore, when I make the coffee I pour in "mugs" of coffee and a heaping scoop of beans for each mug that I want to brew. I also made a "personal measurement" strip of tape with freezer tape and taped it "up" the side of the caraffe. It has held through many, many washings of the pot until recently. I guess in 2011 I'll have to make a new strip. :-) Little trouble I would say for a great cup(mug!) of coffee every morning.RE: capacityMaybe capacity is another slight "con". If you have several people over for coffee you'll need to make one pot and put into a thermal pot and then make another pot. The caraffe only makes about 6-8 mugs/cups--depending on the size of the cup. Some coffeemakers make 12; this one doesn't.So, Melitta--bring it on! I have another sale for you!
D. C Smith: This is a good little machine if you like your coffee beans ground at the instant the coffee is brewed. I've had it almost a year without any trouble. HOWEVER, the reason I'm only rating it a 2 is because it fails at the most basic level by not keeping the coffee hot after 1 hour (the hot plate turns off), and there is no way to override it. So when I brew coffee in the morning and start work, by the time I am ready for my second cup (after being on the phone, checking emails, etc) the coffee is cold and I have to microwave it. Just keep that in mind. Otherwise, it's fine, but I am surprised the designers think 1 hour of hot coffee is acceptable.
Dobeman "Dobeman": After having my Cuisinart Grind and Brew Thermal coffee maker for nearly two years, and hating almost every minute of its incessantly noisy grinder that wasn't fine/coarse adjustable; its popping open and dripping coffee all over the place, and its 5 different things needing cleaning each night; I finally tossed it and "downgraded" to this Melita model.What a relief. I've had it for about 3 weeks now and it has worked flawlessly.Pros:- relatively quiet grinding- hot coffee after sitting on the warming plate- ability to grind beans to desired fineness- fewer pieces to washCons:- about 4 good-sized cups of coffee will nearly empty the pot- this is nitpicky, but the electronics are oft-counterintuitive and difficult to see in low light (like early in the morning). To shut off the grind, you press the button and the light comes on.Definately for the money, this pot is hands down better than at least one of its supposed superiors.
Doc Stew: The world of grind and brew coffeemakers is a crapshoot - I had a Cuisinart Grind and Brew and had nothing but problems. This coffeemaker is great, small, quiet, and makes great coffee! I only have one complaint - the coffee is never really "hot". And I'm very sensitive to hot coffee - I can't even pretend to start drinking a hot cup of joe from Caribou. But from this, the coffee is never really steaming, never really hot. So it's drinkable right away, but if you don't drink your mug within about 10 minutes, it's cold. But all in all, great coffeemaker.
Dr. G. "Dr. G.": Long ago, I had a Toshiba grind/brew machine. It was great, but sounded like a chainsaw when the grinder went off. I went through several Brauns, Krups, and a Cuisinart, and with a couple of burr grinders on the side. I wanted the convenience of putting the grinder into the coffee maker. I had been researching these types of coffee makers for a while, and was leaning toward the Cuisinart -- until I read the reviews here on Amazon! Thank goodness I did not buy that machine. I don't think there was one positive review. That's when I discovered the Melita machine. I examined it in some local stores, and did some price checking. I ordered from Amazon (best price and free shipping). This is a great machine, easy to use, and it makes great coffee. As another reviewer pointed out, it does not have an adjustable heating plate. However, that is not an issue for me, since I always move the coffee into an insulated carafe. I don't like having my coffee cooking on a hotplate.In conclusion - this is the best machine on the market, even if price were not a consideration. When you add in the great price here at Amazon, this is a five-star winner. Thanks Melita! Thanks Amazon!
