2 out of 5 eggs Great Seller, bad unit 05/27/2014

This review is from: Cloer 5218NA 12-Cup Bitterness Eliminating Coffee Maker, Stainless Steel/Black

Pros:

Gets very hot, has controls that are pretty easy to understand right off the bat. Fits normal v shaped metal filter baskets (cheap machines then to use a flatter version). Has a space for a charcoal water filter (big one), which is handy if you have bad tap water like me.

Cons:

I'm used to keeping a pot of coffee hot while I work, so I wanted to keep it turned on longer than 2 hours. I have never encountered a coffee maker that lacked an manual "ON" function in order to keep a pot hot (I buy several a year). This coffee maker breaks the norm.

The instructions said that one can turn it on manually if the water reservoir is removed or the "regulating float is not working properly" But the kicker is, you can't just turn it on; you still have to add enough water to brew coffee--reservoir or no reservoir. Even then, it didn't always work with the unit I received. I had to unplug it and plug it back in to get it to respond on several occasions (oh, I used this thing a lot for the first couple of days.)

On top of that, this gets so hot that MOST of the water used for brewing the coffee frequently escapes via the steam vent, leaving the pot only 1/3 full, if that much!. This happened almost every time I used it. I even tried filling it with ICE WATER to start, but it still turned most of it into vapor that never passed through the coffee grounds.

This is a very strange machine. I'm glad some people got a working unit, but mine is just dysfunctional and I cannot use it. But see below! :)

Other Thoughts:

I bought this from DealYard. When I called them and told them what was going on (there was another problem as well, but I don't have time to get into it) they immediately offered me a refund, no hesitation. Unfortunately, they don't carry any other full-sized coffee makers (they just have a couple Mr. Coffee Latte makers), otherwise I would have used the money to buy something else from them. But I'll keep an eye out for their other items for sale n the future.
