About - Proctor-Silex 48350

The Proctor-Silex 48350 is part of the coffeemaker test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, drip coffeemaker models like the 48350 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:
love this Coffee Pot. Never leaks and makes great coffee. I have tried other Coffee Pots and they ALL leaked. We use several of these Coffee Pots at work (40 people)and their on all day. It also doesn't take up much room and as far as cleaning I wipe it down every time I use it. I've had it for 1 1/2 yrs.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Spring breaks easily

Comment:
Even without it broken, it has simply average performance, but a good price. However, after less than a year, the spring that determines whether the water will drip through to the pot, or not, broke. The broken spring results in a water backup in the filter which then overflows over everything, including large amounts of coffee grounds being in your coffee and everywhere. In order for this coffee maker to work without spilling, I have to rubberband the pot to machine. This coffee maker was given to me as a gift. I still use it daily but I am soon to retire it with a new, better coffee maker.
