Not bad and resonably priced


The first few times I used this machine I experimented with coffee/water amounts but to get the strength I like I found myself using at least twice as much coffee as I do in my espresso machine. I eventually realized that more coffee was not...

Great long lasting coffee perculator


I've had one of these for over 8 years now and it's fantastic. Consistent working over time, programmable etc One issue over time is that the program buttons wore off so it was up to me to remember how it worked and sadly when the glass jug broke it...

A quality product long lasting

The trigger on the jug means no other jugs can be used

Not hot enough


The filter handle broke off the second time we used it, didn't bother returning it as it looks like a design fault and doesn't really affect use. It makes nice coffee, is easy to clean But....the coffee is lukewarm. And I mean lukewarm - it needs 30...

Good coffee flavour, inexpensive.

Hotplate inefficient.

Easy to use, unreliable at best


Bought this machine just before Christmas. Easy to use and program, easy to pour the water in, I was really happy with my purchase. After 6 brews it stopped working. No problem, replaced under warranty. The second one stopped working after less than 20...

Good drip coffee maker


This coffee maker is really simple to operate, use and clean. It has got a LCD 24 hour clock which allows the user to program the machine and avoid waiting for the coffee in the morning. This feature allow for those who like to be organized and prepare...

Fast brew, very simple to use, easy to clean and inexpensive

As others complained, I also found out that the lid can be quite annoying to close down some times. To get hot coffee I need to run a few cups of water through the machine before brewing the coffee to heat it up. For these two reasons I do not give a 5...

Fantastic Product


Really happy with this purchase, Easy to use and set. Amazing to wake up to the smell of freshly brewed coffee in the morning. I dont have issues with the jug leaking like with some other brands. Very affordable for what you get. Easy to clean and...

Quit working after one month


I was so happy to have an automatic drip coffee maker again and this one held real promise. Features such as automatic brewing, the ablility to choose the strength of my coffee, a permanant filter were great-especially since it made a great cup...make...

This coffee machine has been great, i have had no troubles with it! It makes coffee fast and i can set the timer so it's ready when i want it and it will keep my coffee warm so i can have that second cup!

Takes up little space and is easy to use

Good cheap drip coffee maker


We purchased this coffee maker to replace a 7 year old Sunbeam coffee maker. It is simple to use, does what it claims, and is inexpensive to purchase.

Attractive, inexpensive, makes good coffee

The coffee basket is difficult to get straight and if it is not straight the top won't go down. The brew strength adjustment doesn't work and isn't needed.

Consumer review by: wen_bergliner (



The only reason we persisted with this model is that the second machine was replaced under warranty. Considering that the heater or thermostat failed in 2 machines, I would also come to the same conclusion about the PC3600 (no electronics). NOT...

This coffee maker does a good job with a 12 cup capacity and a easily handled carafe, but the carafe will drip when poured unless handled carefully. The dark brown plastic makes a good contrast around the water level window. The undocumented turn-off...

- the 'brew strength' adjustment on the lid is a stupid idea and waste of plastic. If you want a weaker brew, use less coffee! It also makes the plastic filter fit in only one way - wrong way around and the lid won't close! If this happens, the outlet...
