Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by FussyDave If you like weak diner coffee, this is for you.
Easy to use, dismantle and clean. Comes w/ its own basket filter. I like that it uses a proper 6-oz measure for a cup (the previous standard), not the 5 oz most current units use.
Bottom line: The coffee stinks! Weak and bland. Not sure if the water gets hot enough to brew properly. But for sure the coffee brews too fast (much faster than my old Melitta w/ the same amount of coffee in the basket) to extract enough flavor, despite using a cone filter (which typically allows for greater extraction). The design simply lets the water flow through too quickly. Also, the filter, which has a flimsy plastic mesh, is a proprietary size and shape (see photo), so I'm not sure what happens when it inevitably needs replacing, as the unit won't accept a standard filter.
I'll be returning this and keep searching, or maybe just go back to my old plunger pot.

for the price better than expected
the coffee pot looks and works well the only drawback you have to pour very carefully
or coffee spills.

Bought as a gift to replace an old Mr. Coffee. Was pleasantly surprised. Makes a good hot cup of coffee.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by littlerab Just the right size
It's a little coffee pot that is just the right size to make a cup of coffee for me and my husband in the morning. It functions fine and doesn't take up a lot of room at all. You can't beat it for the price.
