The Mr. Coffee 12-cup Programmable Coffee Maker isn't, by any stretch of the imagination, a fancy coffee maker. It has a clock and timer to schedule brew time. But for a basic coffee maker, it is fine.

Brew Performance
The Mr. Coffee 12-cup Programmable Coffee Maker does a fine job of brewing coffee. Of course, it takes some tweaking to learn how much coffee to use for the coffee to come out to your taste, but once you know, it is a reliable cup of coffee.

Ease of Cleaning
The Mr. Coffee 12-cup Programmable Coffee Maker is quite easy to clean. The basket is completely removable, so it can be washed easily in the sink. The rest of the machine is easy to wipe down with a damp sponge. The pot is glass and easily cleaned in the sink as well.

Ease of Use
The Mr. Coffee 12-cup Programmable Coffee Maker is pretty much self-explanatory. It is very easy to set up and use.

Design
The Mr. Coffee 12-cup Programmable Coffee Maker has the same problem as most coffee pots, if you tip it too far when pouring, the coffee spills down the front. When the pot is very full, it is difficult to pour, as you have to pour very slowly to keep it from spilling. Other than that, the coffee maker is designed pretty well. It would be better if it had a thermal carafe instead of the glass pot. I use a carafe I have from an old coffee maker, because if you leave the coffee on the burner to stay warm, it gets charred and strong. By the time the auto-shutdown works in 2 hours, the coffee in undrinkable.

Durability
The Mr. Coffee 12-cup Programmable Coffee Maker is fairly durable. The pot, of course, is easily broken, so you have to use care when handling, but generally, the coffee maker is pretty durable.

This machine was easy to clean and the coffee was great for a bargain appliance. However, once it started to go ithad a very strange, protracted finale. First it started making a very loud banging noise when it wasbrewing. I checked the pump seal and couldn't see anything obvious that as wrong with it. Then the amount of coffee I got in relation to the water put in grew less and less. I tend to use things until they are 100% shot so I still stuck with it until I yielded two cups of coffee per 8 cups of water (which, of course, tasted terrible). All in all, I had this machine for long enough that it did it's job well for its price point. If you are looking for something inexpensive to use a few years the this is a good, not great, machine. I did end up spending more for my new coffee maker in the hopes of better durability and more choices for brew strength, programming, etc.

This thing doesn't have all the features I'd like but for the price, I really can't complain. I think it takes a little bit too long to brew but again, good value.

      We love this coffee maker. We don't like to spend a lot of money on things, or maybe I should say we can't afford to. So we looked for the best, cheaper alternative. This was a great choice. We use it multiple times a day and it has done great for us. It's quiet, it brews pretty quickly and we have never had a problem with it. Definitely worth the money!

        I have been drinking coffee for over half my life, 3 pot or more aday junkie, kid you not. I've purchased dozens of different bands and have them burn up in 6 months time. I decided to try the Mr Coffee brand pots and I love love them, I especially love that I can set my brew time in advance and that it has and automatic shut off,because I do tend to forget to turn it off from time to time. I honestly have nothing negative about the brand, other than I wish it came in a better variety of color's.

          Very dependable coffee maker. I get the same pot every time. I dropped the brewing part of the coffee maker twice while moving and it still working so very durable as well. Its a little on the loud side and not so easy to clean but for the price it is well worth it!

            Mr Coffee has been around for many years and I have always bought it with confidence. This time is not different. The only reason I had to replace my old Mr Coffee 12 cup was because my grandson knocked the glass carafe off the counter and it broke. While I know I could contact them and get a new one, instead I went and got this one and I am so glad I did. I have always loved these and probably will always buy Mr Coffee products for my family and myself.
