Nice little coffee pot

By 

from Richmond VA

Comments about Mr. Coffee 4-Cup Switch Coffee Maker:

This was my coffee pot when I was in college and it always served me very well. It made just enough so that I didn't have to make a second pot, but not so much that I ended up wasting coffee every day. It is easy to use, easy to clean, and is a nice, reliable coffee pot for a single drinker or a family that doesn't often drink coffee.

Brew Performance
It is very standard and basic, but the coffee turns out pretty nice every time. Sometimes the bottom burns a little because the pot is so small, so keep an eye on it.

Ease of Cleaning
This is easy to clean as long as you are careful to keep the bottom of the pot from burning. The burn came off after a few washes.

Ease of Use
This is such an easy coffee pot to use. There are no bells and whistles to worry about and it is very user-friendly.

Design
This is a decent-looking coffee pot, so it looks nice in the kitchen. It isn't the prettiest in the world, but it's a sleek and simple design!

Durability
It's a little flimsy on top, but it held up pretty well while I was using it.

A cute simple coffee maker.

By 

from USA

Comments about Mr. Coffee 4-Cup Switch Coffee Maker:

This coffee maker is perfect for my small one bedroom apartment. My girlfriend and I use it daily, and it makes just enough for both of us. The only bad thing about the coffee maker is where you put the coffee grinds can sometimes get off balance, making the filter tilt, and ultimately getting coffee grinds in your brew.

It's a little too tiny, even for one coffee lover drinking solo.

By 

from USA

Comments about Mr. Coffee 4-Cup Switch Coffee Maker:

The capacity is too small. You barely get two mugs out of this coffee maker. Athough it boasts 4 cup capacity, you must fill the pot just short of the brim just to get four tea cups of coffee. I don't drink my coffee by the teacup. Most people I know use a mug.

Brew Performance
It works perfectly, and the hot plate keeps adequate temperature.

Ease of Cleaning
It's hard to clean the ridges inside of the basket. The white plastic parts stain easily and require bleach cleanser and a brush to maintain a clean appearence.

Ease of Use
In order to get a full four cup pot of coffee, you must fill the water chamber to just over the 4 cup measure on the water window. Any less and you won't get the full 4 cups due to steam evaporation. Any more and you experience an overflow leak.

Design
I prefer a slide out basket. This model requires you to lift up the hinged top to access the water fill chamber and basket. It takes a little effort to reclose it properly. The added pause and serve feature is unnecessary because the unit makes such a small amount of brewed coffee.

Durability
It's well made with the exception of the top piece that covers the water fill chamber and basket. That part is thin plastic.

Great coffee maker!

By 

from Mission, TX

Comments about Mr. Coffee 4-Cup Switch Coffee Maker:

I got this coffee maker as a gift and I love it! I am the only coffee drinker in our household- so its perfect in that its not to big, bulky or complicated.  This coffee maker is very easy to use and also has a feature that allows you to program your coffee to start brewing as you are waking up. Nothing beats waking up to the smell of coffee being made for you! I would recommend this product for singles, young adults, some one living on their own, or if you live in an apartment or dorm this is perfect! The only thing I do not like is that I have to brew 2 pots. 1 for when I am waking up- Then another to have when I am getting ready to walk out the door. The 4 cups easily fill my to-go-mug (its a standard size)

Mr. Coffee is Mr. reliable!

By 

from Greencastle, IN

Comments about Mr. Coffee 4-Cup Switch Coffee Maker:

When I got married, I wanted a basic coffee maker, and registered for this one. I got it as a gift, along with lots of fun gourmet coffees to try! I've used this coffee maker almost every day since then for the last 3.5 years. I'm the only coffee drinker in the house, so the small batch it makes is ideal for me. It's so tiny that is takes up barely any space on the counter, and stays out at all times. It makes a pot of coffee in just minutes. Anyone can use it because it's so basic. I keep a larger coffee maker in the pantry for times that we have company, but this little one is the one I use daily. I also make iced tea in it all summer. If you only need a couple of cups of coffee each day, this will be great for you. The only thing that I wish it had was auto turn-off, I've come home a few times to the smell of scorched coffee because I've forgotten to turn of the pot before leaving! It can hold normal sized coffee filters, so no need to spend more on the mini ones.

Coffee maker is small enough to fit on counter

By 

from Maumee, OH

Comments about Mr. Coffee 4-Cup Switch Coffee Maker:

I love this little coffee maker because it is small enought to just sit on your counter and not take up alot of space. It is only me and my husband and a 4 cup coffee maker is just right! It is very easy to use and it has a feature that you can pull the pot away for 30 seconds while it is still brewing to pour yourself a cup of coffee and the brew stops for those 30 seconds! This coffee maker is very fast and efficient! The glass is very easy to clean and hasnt seemed to stain at all!! It convenently displays the time. It also has a setting that it will brew the next morning at a certain time. I haven't exactly figured that one out yet! I don't like reading the directions because sometimes they just do not make sense!!! I like this simple coffee maker better than the most high tech ones that do a whole bunch of nonsense. All I do is wake up and brew 4 cups of coffee anyway. I don't see why you need a bunch of features. The time and pull away pour is good enough for me!!! I would definately reccommend this to someone who wants a simple small coffee maker!!
