Melitta 12-Cup Coffeemaker #46893


Maxell’s Encore EN-5 offer a rich, full sound for an affordable price, beating out nearly all of the headphones in the test. However, our testers didn’t think they were very comfortable, nor did this pair do a good job staying put during use....

Very happy with the quality of coffee.


Makes great coffee quickly and efficiently. I was always displeased with my "Mr. Coffee" and this machine does what I need.

Great tasting coffee

Great product!


LOVE this coffeepot. Great quality product for a great price. Was looking for a product that was not expensive but would still brew a good cup off coffee. This product out performs all the other brands I have purchased for other family members....

Makes great coffee.


Great overall coffee maker. Two things: remove bar inside pot for easier filling of water from refrigerator and adjustable auto shut off.

The funnel brew system

The coffee pot

I love a coffeemaker with a cone filter - so much more coffee for every pot! This one was great for the $$ invested!

So far so good. We really like it simple.


We have always liked Melitta Coffee Makers. This one is simple with a stainless carafe. We love the lid. It works well. That is one thing that most reviewers rated low on other coffee makers. Also, the coffee stays warm for about two hours. It isn't...

Stainless steel carafe! Not glass

Coffee isn't as hot without a heating element to keep it warm

Love the coffee


I reviewed ALL the coffee makers I could when I was looking for this item. We go thru alot of coffee makers. My husband was looking for some things and I was looking for others. So I had to find one we both would be happy with. This coffee maker hit...

Great basic coffeemaker


Love this coffeemaker so far! It's attractive, perfect size for countertop (i thought it was going to be bigger after seeing pictures, but am elated that it is fairly compact and elegant), strong pleasing blue light display, programmable, three...

Great coffee maker


So far I really like this machine (1 month now). It works great, and is compact -doesn't take up your whole countertop. The only thing I don't like is the caraff lid. The lid is difficult to put back on and I hope I don't break it sometime. We'll see.

compact size, seems to be quality, works fast

caraff lid design is difficult to use, seems like a weak design

Headlines: Malita beats Mr Coffee!


Like I said, the cord is a little short so it doesn't come all the way out from under my cabinets. That makes it tricky to fill with water, the lid wont stay back. It would be nice to have a water gauge on the left side also. Its such a simple concept....

Doesn't Fog Up Display ; Sleek design ; Well Made

Cord is a little short ; No H2o Gauge On Left Side
