Mr, Coffee ISTX85 10-Cup-Coffee Leaker

 

If you have just purchased the ISTX85, place it on a leak proof tray that is easy to pour the leaked coffee out. Controlling the leaking mess will be a frequent part of your morning routine if you use this coffee maker daily. Regularly leaks a big ...

Bought pre-warm metal carafe. No burner, no scorched coffee. Keeps coffee that doesn't leak hot

Great Coffee Maker - No Complaints

 

I have no complaints so far regarding this coffee maker. I bought it to replace another coffee maker/grinder combination that lasted only 2 years. It quit pumping water and I didn't want to spend the money to have it fixed. This coffee maker does not ...

Thermal carafe keeps coffee hot after two hours. Affordable

possible fix

 

Our maker started leading after a few months too, and I've been focused on other matters until recently so we've just been cleaning up after it. Now that I've examined the maker and the leak pattern, I believe it is the brew-pause mechanism that is ...

It provides the liquid to meet my wife's addiction

Should user have to manually hold down the downspout to prevent coffee from leaking

I don't recommend it

 

I bought this coffee maker less than 2 months ago. I bought one for my daughter as a Christmas gift and I decided to buy one for myself as well. At first, I was very happy with it. I wanted one with a thermal carafe and I thought Mr. Coffee would be a ...

Attractive

Doesn't work well

Consumer review by: babyzep (epinions.com)

glitz and odd innovation versus sane function

 

If you like slow-brewing warm coffee, a "pour as it brews" that leaks all over your counter, and 10 seconds of loud BEEP BEEP BEEP BEEP BEEP to let you know the coffee is "ready," then this is your coffeemaker. If you're a pour-as-it-brews person, ...

Attractive machine ; lightweight aluminum thermos

Lightweight aluminum thermos barely keeps coffee warm for 3 hours

Nice Features On An Inexpensive Machine

 

I bought this machine for use in my office at work. It is attractive, easy to use and brews coffee very quickly. There are settings for brew strength that are also easy to use but I have only tried the highest brew strength setting. Many ...

Quick and quiet brewing cycle with attractive features in this price range

Coffee does not stay hot ; carafe top could come loose while pouring

Why bad reviews?

 

I bought my machine and THEN went on-line to read reviews. I was shocked and almost took the maker back before even trying it. After using it for some time, I couldn't believe the bad reviews I had read. My experiences with it were nothing like them. ...

Big 'shower head' insures quality brewing. Self-cleaning cycle. Built in, simple, filter system

It's tall. The carafe button has little 'play. Slow to fill reseviour

Why Mr. Coffee Why? Give me back my Black and Decker.

 

We love coffee around our house. The problem is that my Wife and I have different starting times in the morning. Most times several hours pass between the times that coffee is made and when it is drank by one of the other of us. We had a wonderful ...

Nice Features. Kind of attractive. Easy to operate

Most times you will be cleaning up a mess. Coffee doesn't stay hot

I like this coffee maker

 

I purchased this model almost two months ago and haven't experienced the problems the other reviewers have had. The only real negative I can relate for the machine is the volume of steam it emits. After noting the steam was beginning to damage the ...

Highly recommend AGAINST buying this product

 

I began having problems with the pot running over (on the inside) the 2nd time I used it. I thought it was my fault for not putting the filter basket in properly so I gave it 2 weeks of trying and trying to make it work and it's only worse than in the ...

Really nice looking, decanter is a plus

overflows coffee all over the counter
