Mr. Coffee 8 Cup Thermal Programmable Coffeemaker DRTX85

Rating: 3 out of 5
  • Currently 3.0/5.0

The Mr. Coffee 8 Cup Coffeemaker is great for any busy household with several coffee drinkers. It has a nice programmable display, and the thermal carafe keeps your fresh coffee warm after brewing without a burnt taste. It also has a handy two-hour automatic shut off feature, which is great for those of us on the go bright and early. It has a removable filter basket that can be rinsed off after the coffee grinds are dumped. My favorite feature is that any extra cord can be nicely stored away inside the appliance, keeping my counter top far less cluttered.

For those of us who usually need a cup of coffee before the brewing is done, the pause and serve function is awesome first thing in the morning. An easy to read LED and simplified push-button programming are also nice features that allow the Mr. Coffee coffee maker to be programmed for that fresh morning cup. Who doesn't enjoy the smell of coffee when they are climbing out of bed?

As with any coffee maker this model has a few disadvantages as well. The screw top on the carafe itself can be difficult to open, especially if accidentally cross thread. Sometimes I get leaks from between the different parts of the carafe as well. If the carafe is not seated properly, you will get some bubbling on the warming plate, as coffee will seep down the side.
