The Panasonic NC-ZF1 is part of the Coffee maker test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, Drip coffee maker models like the NC-ZF1 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.


Programmable Programmable Programmable models have a clock and can be set to brew at a specified time.
Thermal carafe/mug Thermal carafe/mug Keeps coffee warm for about four hours; thermal mugs don't hold heat as well.
Small-batch setting Small-batch setting Claims to let you make a partial pot without compromising coffee quality.
Brew-strength control Brew-strength control Adjusts brewing time to make weaker or stronger coffee.
Dispenser-style Dispenser-style Dispenser models, which we call self-serve, hold the brew in a heated tank; you fill your cup by pressing it against the dispenser lever.
