West Bend 56705 Performance Series 12-Cup Auto-Off Coffeemaker

The coffee maker works without the lid completely closed...but its on/off switch is temperamental. Sometimes it won't switch on --and sometimes it won't switch off. Each time the appliance did work properly 20-30 minutes later, but I would prefer a...

Ironwood Gourmet Acacia Wood Townhouse Tea Box

This tea box looks nice enough and holds a good number of tea bags, but the chain for the lid always gets in the way of it closing, and the box was sort of warped so it rocked on my counter instead of staying flat. While I like the idea of the tea box,...

Mr. Coffee GBX25 12-Cup Coffeemaker & Grinder

The grinder, which looks like a little blender, effectively chops beans and puts them into the filter. It is important to wash and DRY the grinder before making a pot. If you have ground coffee, you can bypass the grinding step and use it like a...

Toastess One Cup Coffee Maker

This was the worst item I have ever bought. The very first time I used it, I had a hard time pressing the button to the On position. When I finally got it to go to On position the switch burned out and smoked.

Mr. Coffee AR5 4-Cup Switch Coffeemaker, Black

The quality is ok. I think the one I bought was defective. I had problems with the lid popping open during brewing, and then it clogged and wouldn't do anything when I tried to clean it (I'd cleaned it before without any problems, but I guess it was...

SUNBEAM PRODUCTS INC #AR10 10C White Coffeemaker

I'd advise getting the model with the swing-out filter basket. I've had both, and this model's lift-out basket means that if coffee grounds get spilled you have to put the whole pot under running water (carefully) in order to clean it. Also, raising...

Krups ProCafe II Time 10-Cup Coffee Maker

I bought this coffeemaker two years ago, for approximately $85.00. It worked ok for awhile. I had replaced a cheapie that I bought at K-Mart for maybe $20, and that thing was ugly, I don't remember the brand name, but it lasted for years. I ...

KitchenAid Artisan 5KES100BOB

I looked at the reviews and thought here were go, lots of people complaining with nothing better to do. How could such a solid (and expensive) machine not be good for 20 years... low tech all you have to do is de scale every 3 months. Also I know it is...

12 Cup Digital Coffeemaker

Anybody old enough to remember the problems with the Ford Pinto? Supposedly if you hit the car in a rear-end collision it was very easy to rupture the gas tank and cause a deadly fire. Not really a good thing to happen on a car.... Well, I'm sure...

Kalorik CCG-19322 1000-Watt 10-Cup Coffeemaker with Built-In Grinder...

Overall opinion; Great idea, grind just prior to brewing for the best tasting cup. Pass this one by- Capresso makes a nice grind and brew system that separates the functions but also costs almost $300. POSITIVES; Aesthetics - nice looking unit Taste -...

DeLonghi DC87T 12-Cup Coffee Maker

Horrible... coffee doesn't taste that great... especially for the price... mine broke after 2 months... the lid of the carafe just snapped off... so the coffee won't drip into the pot

Alpenrost CR1010PRP Grinder

I have been roasting coffee beans for almost 2 years, after paying 30 bucks for a roasted pound of unsatisfactory Kona Extra Fancy. My first roaster was a Hearthware Precision coffee roaster, a fluidized bed-type roaster purchased for around $150. This...

Capresso JURA-20404 froth PLUS Automatic Milk Frother - Silver

It seems that Capresso should get out of the milk frothing business.This model does not get a good review and the one I purchased in February 2013 from BB.com is no longer available, but it was not much different in style and price from this one. I...

Hamilton Beach 12 Cup Coffeemaker with Clock-43671

I do not recommend buying this. This was an impulse buy at a local drug store. It was on sale for a reason. It doesn't work. Either something was not manufactured correctly or just left out of the packaging. It was still in shrink wrap so I was the...

I have bought THREE grinder coffe makers just like this one...each with a different brand name. NONE OF THEM WORK. They work for a few months and then they start to leak water at the filtering section. They also vapor up and everything is filled with...

DGB-700BC - Grind-and-Brew 12-Cup Automatic Coffeemaker

We've had this product for about a year, and finally have decided to buy a separate grinder because this is so difficult to use. The coffee tastes ok, but I want excellent coffee with a minimum of effort, and this doesn't come close.

Prestige Travel Kettle, White, 0.75 Litre

This kettle was bought for our motorhome. It proved to be short lived, as the flimsy on/off switch broke after only a few uses. It also comes with a very short lead, which was inconvenient. I would not buy one of these again.

Salton FES15B Stainless Steel
