Great coffee maker with a few dribbles
on March 20, 2012
It is very hard to choose a coffee maker that you will be happy with, and produces good tasting coffee. Here is my two cents on the Mr. Coffee DWX23 coffee maker.
Easy to read blue LED clock and blue LED power indicator.
Easy to set the time and program.
Brews 10 cups in about 12 minutes.
Water temperature going into the grounds is around 192 degrees, which is better than most coffee makers out there.
Easy to read water reservoir.
Decanter does not drip or dribble (at least mine did not).
The warming plate is non-stick and keeps the brewed coffee hot (around 180 degrees) for 2 hours.
The real only complaint I can think of is when you leave the lid closed after brewing, and you go to make another pot of coffee in the morning, once you open the lid, not all of the water will end up in the reservoir. Some will dribble down the back of the coffee maker. I have seen this design flaw in most coffee makers out there, and is usually a make or break decision with me.
The best selling point I can make about this coffee maker, is the water temperature. After a year in service, the water temperature is still a constant 192 degrees. Most commercial and industrial coffee makers will push water out at 200 degrees, so this is a very close competitor as far as the flavor of the coffee being brewed. I am very picky about coffee flavor, so this coffee maker does a great job for flavor and warmth.
Cleaning is a cinch. Just run 1/4 cup of white vinagar to 12 cups of cold water, followed by 3 more 12 cup brews of cold water once a month and you are in for great tasting coffee with the Mr. Coffee DWX23 coffee maker.
