What a failure!

Seemed just right for a simple way to make a quick single brewed cup of coffee. Small, low profile and uses little space on the counter. The science is so simple and established that I figured there could be no problems.

Wrong, it cannot deliver more than 6 ounces of water through the system, even though the water well holds 12 ounces. If you drink more than six ounces (smaller than a juice glass) of coffee, this is not the unit for you.

The well is filled with 12 ounces and the machine starts to brew. Good. Then, about half way through the process (VERY slow) it simply stops. I used my own 12oz mug which fits well but the pot seems pooped and just keeps on heating the water without delivering it through the plumbing. I have "plunged" the small water hole in the bottom if the well with no results.

I've tried it five times, wasting coffee and time and it simply doesn't want to work.

I'm planning to use it for a planter. Small cut wildflowers will look nice. For coffee, I'm going to a real working product.

It doesn't pay to return this item because the time and postage will make it too expensive.

This is junk, pure and simple.

This is a simple and cheap product that works. It does not turn off automatically, and I always worry I'lll leave it on and burn it out or burn the house down, but I haven't. I have left it on overnight... oops... but it survived! It doesn't need paper filters, just rinse out the filter supplied. Definitely a thumbs up for this product.

This one cup coffee maker is nice if you just want one cup of coffee. You must adjust the coffee to your particular taste. It includes a mug and a washable filter. It also includes a measuring spoon. It fits most mugs.

I got my Toastess at Tuesday Morning for about $10. It's a nice, temporary little coffeemaker except that it's missing a heating plate to keep the mug warm; if you don't get to your coffee immediately, be prepared to reheat it in the microwave. Always add the water first, then the coffee; if done in reverse, the water spout puffs out air and blows the coffee grounds all over the place. Also, after filling the water reservoir, about a tablespoon of water leaks into your mug before you even start brewing. The disc under the mug is removable, so the machine accomodates larger-sized mugs. The permanent filter is a great feature and its saving grace. *UPDATE*: After several months, my coffee started to taste funny, like it had disinfectant in it or something--a strange, chemical taste. I made another cup using my usual coffee and filtered water--still that funky taste! Then I made another using an old standby machine, and the coffee tasted fine. I concluded it was the Toastess and tossed it. 2 stars.

This was the worst item I have ever bought. The very first time I used it, I had a hard time pressing the button to the On position. When I finally got it to go to On position the switch burned out and smoked.

Pros: It makes coffee

Cons:
1. It's flimsy
2. The on-off switch is difficult to use. It is placed low down on the side and not very obvious. It doesn't switch off automatically so it's easy to leave the unit switched on
3. It takes a long time to make coffee, and the coffee is barely warm when finished

Summary:
Spend a few more $$s and get a Black and Decker!

I purchased this for my dad. He loves it. It is very easy to use and he can make his one cup of coffee in the morning. I love how it comes complete with it's own mug and reusable filter. No need for paper filters. I recommend this product for ease of use and quality.

I bought the Toastess 1-cup coffee maker for my Husband and he loves it. I don't drink coffee at all but he does. We never bought a coffee maker before because they usually make 6 or more cups of cofee, which we wouldn't be able to drink. Now he can have a cup of coffee before work in the mornings, that's not instant coffee :-)

Bought as a gift for my Mom who is not tecnically blessed. She found it simple to use. For her liking the water did not get hot enough so we found starting with hot tap water and the cup of coffee was steaming hot to her complete satisfaction.

This little coffeemaker is just right at a very good price. I appreciate the attachment for using a larger mug than the one that comes with it. Sometimes the coffee does spatter a bit while the cup is filling but not enough to negate a good review. I have very limited counter space in my little kitchen so this is a perfect coffeemaker.
