I got one of these several months ago to use on my desk at work, being tired of being the only one providing coffee and supplies -- not to mention refilling -- for the community coffee pot. It is an excellent little device and I especially like the automatic shutoff on the hotplate so I don't come back after a long weekend and find charcoal in the bottom of the pot.

However, the pour spout on the pot needs work. Not a day goes by that, no matter how careful I am, I don't end up with dribbles on my desk, mouse pad or pants. The Mr. Coffee 4-cupper I have at home exhibits no such irritating quirk and I'm thinking of buying a Mr. Coffee replacement pot to use on the G.E. Not sure it would fit properly, so it's still just a thought.

Also, I found the clock display a bit bright, as close as I sit to it, but a small piece of paper taped over it works fine.

I bought this coffee pot a couple of years ago to replace a 4 cup Mr. Coffee unit that failed way too soon. I liked it's sleek look.

But the decanter leaked and spilled no matter how I poured. Fortunately I had not yet disposed of the old Mr. Coffee unit so a simple substitution of the Mr. Coffee 4-Cup Replacement Decanter (which we already had) for the leaky GE decanter fixed that problem instantly.

After the coffee has brewed if you wait until the blue brew light stops blinking you will have the hot coffee you expect. The short cord is a bonus for me as the pot is located on the counter right in front of the outlet. Number 2 cone filters are a perfect fit for no-mess coffee ground disposal.

I like the simplicity of design, economy of size, and reliability of the electronics. So far it has performed perfectly every day for the past two or three years.

I purchased my little G.E. Coffee maker a couple of months ago from Wally World and since I love it so much I thought I'd check out the reviews on Amazon and see if everyone else agreed that it's just the greatest thing! Guess not everyone feels the same way. My old coffee maker would never heat the water to a degree that would release all the good flavor out of the grounds but this one sure does! I was sooo happy to finally have a great tasting, hot cup of coffee again and it was still plenty hot after adding cream! I love the permanent filter basket, I believe it has a lot to do with the improvement in flavor as well. It's the perfect size for I am the only coffee drinker and I've noticed with delight that a can of coffee now lasts me all month instead of 3 weeks. I haven't noticed the pot dribbling during the pours as others have and the stair step water levels in the pot for me are a plus. All in all, after a couple months of daily use it has continued to work perfectly and nothings fallen apart. Perhaps the manufacturer read all the bad reviews and made recent improvements? I hope so cuz I don't want it to fall apart in the next few months cuz I love it!

This is a coffee maker made under GE's name for sale in Walmart stores only. Walmart currenly sells this model for $19 (Feb '13). This model is panned on Walmart's website for many reasons which I will list below:

**The top cover where you pour in the water warps and cracks.
**The carafe breaks - the band attaching the handle has a screw that gets stripped and at that point, the carafe will either fall out of your hands (full of hot coffee perhaps) or you will end up with a handle-less carafe.
**People report widely varying experiences with brewed coffee quality.
**Several people report the on-off switch doesn't work properly, including the carafe switching on without pressing the button.
**The LED is insanely bright and will illuminate your entire kitchen.
**Reviewers report that replacement carafes and water filter pods are only intermittently available from GE. WM stores don't carry these replacement parts. It is also reported that the cost of a 2 pack of filters is half the cost of the coffee maker, and a replacement carafe + shipping costs as much as buying a new coffeemaker.

This is my second GE 5 cup digital (I repeat my mistakes). First one lasted six months before it stopped working all together, it would no longer turn on. With the second unit, the handle fell off which I repaired but after one month it too would no longer turn on. The blue light worked but it would not brew. Two units with the same flaw is definitely a quality control issue. It's junk.

We were shopping in the new Super Wal-Mart for the first time and items were flying into the cart fast and furious. The five cup GE coffee maker was among those spontaneous, compulsive purchases.
It looks good out of the box, stylish in its classic black and chrome trim. It's the perfect size for the single coffee drinker who only wants two cups in the morning and doesn't want a monster coffee machine taking up valuable counter space. This model has a digital clock and timer, both easy to set.

So why don't I like it? Let me list the ways.

I don't like the too short electrical cord that limits placement.
I don't like that there is no exterior fill level guide. The little steps 1-5 in the water compartment are novel but not easy to see in dim light.
The water compartment is narrow and makes for easy spilling.
I don't like the permanent filter. It's a pain to clean, and I don't like rinsing coffee grounds down our sink.
Paper filters don't work because of the filter compartments shape, a narrow bottom.
I don't like that a replaceable charcoal filter goes in the water compartment. It's something else to buy and replace and keep track of.

The mostly plastic appliance does have a metal hot plate. I don't like that it automatically turns off in ONE hour. I'm usually not done drinking and pouring my coffee within an hour.

Because of the above I can't recommend this model unless you want one with a permanent filter and an automatic one hour turn off. If you program the timer and get up late, your coffee might be cold when you get up.

I just got mine and like it very much. Reading the other reviews, I may have to drop a star or two in the future. They indicate that what it offers in looks and present performance fails in longevity. I bought mine to replace a similar Mr. Coffee, which lasted 5 - 6 years before plastic parts broke (they do deteriorate). My local Wal-Mart no longer carries it; hence, the switch. I do not have the trouble spilling while pouring--don't know what their problem is...? With both the Mr. Coffee and the Farberware, filling the reservoir is tricky; the lid gets in the way. I used the "permanent" filter only once. It allows small particles to pass through and is a bother to clean. Instructions recommend cone filters, but round filters I had on hand tuck in and are easily disposed of, grounds and all. As to how many cups it will make, about the same as the Mr. Coffee or a little more. Certainly they do not mean 5 measuring cups, so what size is your cup? I think it would hold five of my china cups. I use a mug and get about 2 1/2 cups of delicious coffee.

G.E. has incorporated all the best features of higher priced coffee makers in this compact, inexpensive 5-cup model. I especially appreciate the permanent filter; and the display that flashes while the coffee is brewing, and lights steady when it is done. The water level indicators are inside, so I can see the quantity while I am pouring, instead of having of look on the sides, as with other makers. The brewed coffee is consistently good. With a charcoal filter, programmable timer, and automatic shutoff, this little marvel is an amazing bargain.

When I bought this GE model we had four adult children living at home so the chance getting a cup of fresh and hot coffee first thing in the morning was rare! I wanted a small unit with an auto-timer that would fit neatly on a bedroom table. It's been a year and a half, we're down to one kid at home, and we're still waking up each day to the wonderful aroma emanating from this little gem. The "time" and "brew" features are easy to set, and I think coffee from this machine tastes better, probably because of the changeable charcoal water filter. Each filter lasts for about a month, so keep in mind you'll have to buy them in addition to regular filters. (I can only find them locally at Walmart, and they're available on Amazon.) Two things I would change - I wish the coffee came out hotter, and the blue light on the digital display is pretty bright (maybe not a problem if you keep it on the kitchen counter and not in the bedroom). It's nice to have found a product that just does what it's supposed to do.

This little 5 cup GE coffe maker brews coffee just fine. The spout leaks when you pour out of it...poor design in the bending of the glass. The light is way too bright!! I have to unplug it daily just to turn off the light. My lid broke for some reason, all that it does is go up and down but the plastic seemed to be brittle. My problem now is that Wal Mart does not sell this product anymore therefore does not support providing any replacement parts. The two year warranty is over so I could continue to use it with a lid that is broken in half or buy another coffee maker. Fortunately, these are not expensive but I sure would like more "after the sale support". Especially with big name brands as "GE" and Wal Mart.
