About - Mr. Coffee BVMC-SJX33GT

The Mr. Coffee BVMC-SJX33GT is part of the coffee maker test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, drip coffee maker models like the BVMC-SJX33GT are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.


Brew performance:
The ability to reach 195° to 205° F for five or six minutes, the industry standard for optimal brewing.

Convenience:
Reflects ease of filling the reservoir, placing the filter, gauging the amount of coffee remaining, and cleaning up. It also reflects how clear we judged the controls.

Carafe handling:
Covers handle comfort, tendency to drip while pouring, balance of a full carafe, and how easy it was to empty the last liquid. Models with no score here brew into single-serve cups or are self-serve models. The latter hold the coffee in a tank; you fill your cup by pressing it against the dispenser lever.

Comment:
We choose this based on the ratings and put it on our Christmas wish list. It worked well for a month until it stopped brewing suddenly one day. For a unit to fail a month in, that's just poor quality.<br /><br />The only other knock on this is that the lighting interface isn't the best. You can easily figure it out, but their designers could easily have done better.
How long have you owned it:
One-to-three months

No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Best Coffee I have ever had from a low cost machine. You cannot do better for under 50$. I do not use the strong brew button, so I cannot comment.

Comment:
I make two to three pots a day. My first Mr. Coffee BVMC-SJX33GT coffeemaker would not keep the coffee hot and broke completely after a year. I've had coffee makers designed to only keep the coffee warm, not hot, so that it keeps in the pot for a while. I thought that was the case with this one but after I bought my second, I figured out that my first coffee maker never worked right to begin with. My second would keep the coffee hot but broke after a few months. <br /><br />I'm done with Mr. Coffee and am wondering why such a coffee maker gets a moderate to high rating from consumer reports. Shouldn't consumer reports give reliability information? This one is NOT reliable.
How long have you owned it:
Three-to-six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
