I would not recommend this coffee maker to anyone.
P. Mitchell
I would much rather not have those holes, and have to pour the water out of the coffee maker if I were to put too much in.
It is impossible to pour the water in the machine or coffee into your cup without spilling everywhere.

I love coffee! Coffee, coffee & more coffee! For as long as I can remember, I have owned the basic, easy-to-use, bell and whistle-less Mr. Coffee Machine.

Early one morning, I was horrified to discover that the heating elment on my then current machine had committed suicide the night before. It was an ugly morning of bumping into walls and uttering quite a few ugly little sentences. Avid coffee drinkers will understand.

So I head over to the local "Linnens-and-Beyond" type place,(what exactly is the "beyond" part anyway?)and I found it. The basic, black, 12 cup, on/off, timer if I should ever decide to use it, under $30.00 Mr coffee. Yay! Oh the rejoicing!!

Until I got it out of the box. The horror! They had changed the design of my beloved basic machine!

It used to be that just the back water chamber lid opened. Now the whole top of the machine is lidded. The problem? I have to pull the machine all the way to the edge of the counter to pour the water in. Then I have to push the whole thing back after it is full. Splash!! Ok not so big a problem, right?
Wrong!! And now for the idiots of the world, they have introduced two sunflower seed sized holes on the back wall of the water chamber. I suppose this is so he chamber is not over-filled. Great. So any water that I may overpour goes all over the counter. Or when I push the machine back into place, the splashing water in the chamber comes out - you guessed it, all over the counter. Hey guys, thanks. What a brilliant idea.

Oh, did I mention that the pot itself is it's own little nightmare and a half. This pot spills, spills, spills and spills some more. When filling the chamber, it dribbles. When I am pouring a cup, it dribbles all over, you guessed it, my counter.

Unfortunately (for me) I largely agree with The Electric Rat's review. I wanted a basic coffee maker (so many others have very complicated-looking features, or add-ons like grinders and filters that I already have separate from my coffee maker, and they add a lot to the price). This one is basic but the design could be better. I'd say this coffee maker is OK, but research others before you buy it, maybe you can get something better for the same price.

-Makes good coffee.
-I'm happy with the temperature (I'm also not a fan of coffee that you have to let sit for 20 minutes to avoid 3rd degree burns).
-Looks nice on the counter.
-Can set to brew in advance.
-2-hour shutoff.
-Contrary to other reviews I have not had any problems with the pot itself spilling when pouring. I am careful when pouring, but with my old coffee maker, even when I was careful it would spill.
-I only have to clean the removable parts. My old coffee maker used to get very dirty on the top and I would have to scrub it with a paper towel, and never could get it fully clean. With this one I don't have to do that. I think a couple of the bad features below are what make me not have to clean that piece, so I'm a little torn on how I feel about it.
-When I open the lid after brewing coffee, the water clinging to the top funnels neatly back into the reservoir (where it evaporates after a while left open), and does not spill onto the counter.

-The entire top flips up to put in coffee and water, so I have to pull the whole coffee maker to the edge of the counter, because it flips too high for the cabinets.
-There are holes in the back of the water reservoir, so if I pour too much in it'll leak all over the counter.

This maker does a good job brewing the coffee. It is easy to use and make s a HOT cup of coffee. However, you would think after all these years of designing coffee pots, Mr. Coffee would have the best design. Nope, not even close.

No matter how slow I go or hard I try, the coffee pot ALWAYS "dribbles". To put it simply, it is a very bad design. If you pour a cup of coffee, do it on a napkin.

This product is the poster child of a product that is designed to break after being used for a relatively short period of time. After a year or so of normal use, I found that I could no longer turn the coffee pot on. After fiddling with it for a short period of time, most people would toss it and go out and buy a replacement. I took it apart, however (the manufacturer was clever enough to replace two of the six phillips-bit screws with torx-bit screws and hide them under the rubber feet which once again would have prevented their dirty secret from being discovered from someone less prepared) and I found that they offset the power switch a quarter of an inch side of the external button, and glued an activating arm to the external button so it would press the power switch. Naturally, such a flimsy arrangement would break off in short order. Looking at the curcuit board shows absolutely no practical reason to set it up that way (it would have actually increased their manufacturing costs by a couple of pennies) other than to design a product that you would be forced to replace after a year or so of normal, daily use.

I won't be buying another Mr. Coffee product again.
