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

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.

I bought this coffee maker on CR's rating. From the minute I got it, it has always made terrible tasting coffee. CR should remove this coffee maker from its list of recommended appliances.
How long have you owned it:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
Great coffee - design needs improvement
Easy To Use
I insist on a great cup of coffee, made fairly quickly, and this need is met every time. My only issues are the drippy carafe lid, and the messy outer reservoir lid, which leaks condensation down the back of the machine and onto the counter when it's flipped up. Doesn't take long to clean up, but why should I have to?

No coffee this morning !
Hard To Clean
Turns On Won't Brew
Worked Only 8 Months
Programed for each morning to get the family started ..except today after only 8 month it didn't brew ...all the lights are on and it seems that it's ready but won't brew. This is the second time I've been disappointed with Mr. Coffee product, thought if I bought a better recommended one I would have better luck.. Time to try another brand !
