Mr. Coffee® Optimal Brew™ 10-Cup Programmable Coffee Maker with Thermal Carafe is rated
Rated 5 out of
Even better than my previous coffee maker which was a Mr. Coffee. Like that the water filter is connected to the brew basket drawer. Like that I can remove the water reservoir to fill it. Before I had to fill the carafe with water and then pour that water into the reservoir; one extra step to ensure spillage. Like that the coffee stays hot inside the thermal decanter. Controls are easy to use. Be advised: if you download the owner's manual from Mr. Coffee you'll see on page 5 that the water reservoir is permanently attached to the lid; they no longer make that model and the lid is separate from the water reservoir now.

I love this coffee maker
I just replaced my original pot this morning. I guess several years of hard water took it's toll on the water pump. When I purchased the original pot it wasn't because I read the reviews, it was because I was tired of replacing expensive pots. Thermal carafe is a must. It doesn't take long for coffee in a glass carafe on a hot plate to become bitter. That may be OK for someone who adds cream and sugar, but not for black coffee. I like the programmable feature, the removable water tank, and the cleaning feature. The black and stainless matched my appliances and it is inexpensive. This pot lasted far longer than the many expensive pots I tried.

Coffee not hot enough after brewing
Mr. Coffee came out with a great design on this brewing system. Easy to use buttons, stylish, looks great in my kitchen. Easy to fill with water. The main problem is that the coffee isn't very hot right after brewing. In other words, you don't really see "steaming" coffee while pouring into your cup. It's average temperature, not bad, I can still drink it but PREFER it to be much hotter. Also, the round filter part that is suppose to snap close after turning it doesn't stay sometimes. I open the filter part to toss used grounds and sometimes see the filter laying in it. Otherwise, it's a great coffeemaker. I still love it.

Coffee all day
I bought this pot about a week ago, trying the thermal carafe. I really liked the removable reservoir and the slide out basket. Also love this version of the freshness timer. It has a very sleek design and it fit perfectly under my counter. After making my first pot of coffee; first cup came out piping hot and the aroma was to die for, but after only 1 hour the second cup was barely even hot. I drink a lot of coffee, usually about 2 - 3 cups a day sometimes more. So I would not recommend this to anyone who drinks a lot of coffee, because you would only get 1 cup of hot coffee. I'm going back to the traditional glass carafe.

Weak coffee, doesn't brew more than 4 cups
Originally I thought this coffee maker was great. I made myself a pot of coffee, filling the water reservoir up to the 4 cup line, and the coffee tasted great and the carafe kept it hot. The first problem I had with this coffee maker was in brewing more than 4 cups of water. If I fill it to the 10 cup line, and add the appropriate amount of grounds to the basket, the grounds overflow into the machine as soon as water is added, it creates a huge mess to clean up and rinse out. And the resulting coffee is trash, as it is weak and full of grounds. This morning I tried to fill the coffee maker up to the 6 cup line, and although the grounds did not overflow, the coffee was extremely weak, looking like tea. I checked the basket and noticed that half the grounds were still dry. I decided to try again, same thing happened. This coffee pot seems incapable of brewing more than 4 cups successfully. What a waste of money and great coffee.

Best Coffee Maker I've owned.
We first bought this as a gift for friends almost three years ago. After hearing how much they loved it for two years we got one for ourselves. This coffeemaker looks great and makes coffee that tastes great. Don't read too much in to the bad reviews...we haven't experienced any negative issues at all. In fact, the left over coffee is still warm when I dump it out of the thermal carafe 9 hours later after work. Complaints of cold coffee....I just can't believe it. A little piece of advice...we bought a second carafe off the Mr. Coffee website for $15 or so (really good deal). When you have extra company you can set one carafe right on the table for people to enjoy while a second is brewing. You'll want to do the same....I promise.

Clean this every 5 brews
I have had this coffee maker for a while, but rarely used it until my husband retired. I had used a 5-cup maker, and now needed a 10-cup maker. I thought this would be a solution. However, using regular tap water caused the maker to need cleaning every 5 brews instead of the 90 brews indicated in the user manual. That is 6 cups of vinegar every 5 days. And the coffee maker won't work until it is cleaned. I bought a filtered water pitcher for the water used in this coffee maker thinking this would help. Now I only have to clean it every 9 brews. I will be shopping for a new coffee maker when the current gallon jug of vinegar is gone.

An exceptional coffee maker
I have had this for a month and it gets used multiple times a day. It was purchased on-line despite some sketchy reviews to replace a Melitta thermal coffee maker that died an early death. I cannot believe some of the poor ratings I found on line prior to purchasing.... "Coffee is too hot"....Seriously? Hot water equates to great extraction. Most drip machines are notoriously too cold to get good extraction.
This thing is fast, consistent, easy to clean, and just makes an awesome cup of coffee.
The only feature I miss on my Melitta is a brew strength choice. I have to use about 1/8 cup more beans to make the cup of coffee I am used to with this maker.
