About - Mr. Coffee BVMC-SJX33GT

The Mr. Coffee BVMC-SJX33GT is part of the coffeemaker test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, drip coffeemaker 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 brew-and-dispense models. The latter hold the coffee in a tank; you fill your cup by pressing it against the dispenser lever.

Comment:
The reason I gave this unit one star is because half of the coffee grounds are dry after it runs. This started happening soon after we purchased it so I didn't attribute it to a clogged spout. Nevertheless, I have throughly cleaned the coffee maker and still - the hot water only dribbles out and never gets to half of the coffee grounds leaving them perfectly dry at the end of the process. Every day I stir the hot water and grounds manually to make the thing work. You could call me Mr Coffee.

Comment:
Started getting louder and louder when percolating. Then the percolating slowed down to 6 cups an hour. The top warped from the heat of the steam. Very difficult to clean.
