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.

This is very similar my bvmc-sjx36gt. Very inconvenient due the short 25 power cord. Although I could read the clock display at the store, on the counter I realized I could only see it if at eye level. Considering return it.
