Manufacturer's 1-year limited warranty
Employing a stainless-steel vacuum carafe instead of a warming plate, this 1,200-watt coffeemaker brews up to ten 5-ounce cups in just 8 minutes for maximum flavor and aroma, and the carafe then keeps the coffee hot for 4 hours. The carafe prevents coffee from turning bitter, as it can when sitting on a warming plate, and doesn't have to remain with the machine for coffee to stay hot. To reduce calcification, Capresso's stainless-steel ThermoBlock system prevents water from contacting aluminum inside the machine. Other features: a digital, programmable, 24-hour clock/timer that makes it possible to have coffee ready in the morning; an automatic pause when the carafe is removed during the brewing process for a quick pour; a charcoal water filter to remove up to 83 percent of the chlorine in tap water; an electronic indicator to show when the water filter needs replacing; a setting for brewing three to five cups without diluting flavor and aroma; a permanent Gold Tone filter; automatic shutoff after brewing; an external water-level indicator; and concealed cord storage.
With a polished, extruded-aluminum body and plastic accents, the machine looks great on the counter. It measures 9-3/4 inches wide, 13-3/4 inches high, and 10 inches deep, weighs 7 pounds, and carries a one-year warranty against defects. --Fred Brack

We bought this coffee maker in Dec 2009 and now in Feb 2017 it has just started to leak water slowly through the bottom seal of the water tank. This leaking was probably due to the thorough clean and descaling we gave it a few days ago - so overall it lasted 6+ years which for a modern kitchen appliance is pretty good. We can still use the coffee machine it is just we now have to pour the water in just before we make the coffee rather than the night before. The only other issue we have had is that the water level gauge float (the little orange ball) no longer floats so it is harder to see how much water you are pouring in, unless you lean down to get the water gauge to your eye level.
At the time we bought it the price was $129 plus tax, which was pretty expensive. However we wanted a programmable machine with a thermal carafe. Now its 2017 it is much easier to find recommended thermal carafe drip machines, but if you want a reasonably good rated programmable timers it will still be somewhere in the price range of $90+. Since we use our coffee machine daily, we therefore decided to treat ourselves and have just bought a Oxo Barista Brain 9-cup ($199 but with amazing reviews) and will try making coffee in both the old and the new machines when it arrives.
From a design perspective it works fine. If you have overhead counter tops you will probably need to pull the coffee machine forward a bit when filling the water. The design is a little dated and the water level gauge and timer gauge are not the most ergonomic to see. To pour coffee out of the thermal carafe you need to rotate the top until the little bump aligns with the spout - the little bump is not the easiest to see, particularly if you have just woken up and the lighting in the kitchen is not the best - it would have been better to make it more obvious (e.g. color it or make it protrude more). I have also sometimes found that it is not easy to grip the lid to rotate it, e.g. if hands are damp, so making the gripping points protrude more would help.
We did have a few instances of the coffee continuing to drip out of the basket mid brew when we removed the carafe, however this was due to fine coffee grounds being trapped in the mechanism. Once we washed the mechanism it worked fine and no longer dripped. After we brew I leave the lid open for an hour or two so the moisture can dry - we've had no issues with mould etc.
We are not coffee connoisseurs, so I can't really comment on the taste other than to say I've drunk the coffee it has made for 6+ years. Hence based on how long it has lasted and having no major issues I rate it overall as 4 stars.
This coffee maker is wonderful. There are the few minor issues that people have mentioned.
1, The top doesn't snap closed securely the way I'd like it to.
2, If you overfill the reservoir a bit you end up with coffee on the counter.
3, The carafe must be positioned squarely under the basket or you'll have a mess.
These are such trivial problems, that I feel guilty even pointing them out in this review. This machine does NOT need a design overhaul to fix these issues. They are primarily user problems.
This machine makes perfect coffee every time. That's the bottom line.
I bought the MT-500, not the MT-600 (made in China), so I can't say whether they've regressed in quality.
Life is too short to drink bad coffee.
There were many other brands that we also sold but everyone who came back in and told me about their experience with the MT-500 all told me the coffee was brewed quickly and at the proper temperature. The only issue some had was the carafe did not hold the coffee as hot as they would have hoped for, but many were expecting the coffee to still be piping hot after being in the carafe for hours. One secret to keeping the coffee hot for an extended time was to only open the top to dispense the coffe and not take the lid completely off nor fail to tighten it back to its initial fully closed position. For those who wanted or expected steaming hot coffee hours later, I often suggested they do one of two things to better accomplish that. First was to pre warm the carafe with hot water just prior to making coffee, and if they found that to be an imposition then I would often encourage them to pre heat a glass thermos style carafe, one with a screw on lit not a stopper type, and immediately transfer all the unused coffee from the stainless carafe into the thermos style carafe, seal the lid and the coffee would be kept hot significantly longer. Many found this to be an excellent solution because they could brew a pot of coffee and pre warm the thermos carafe at the same time and use the latter to serve from since it would be more asthetically pleasing than the stainless carafe that came with the coffee maker.
Based on customer feedback I purchased one of these for my own use, I had that machine for about seven (7) years and until I caused it to fail from failing to decalsify (AZ water was so full of minerals it was just short of rocks coming out of the fawcet) the coffee maker enought it finally gave it up from my lack of caring not from the machine failing from some manufacturing problem. Up to the point it would no longer brew we never had any problems with it whatever.
I was delighted to find the older version of this coffee maker availaible from an Anazon seller mainly because the current version of this coffee maker [the one made in China] might be a very good version, but I have a personal adversion to high end applicances that are made in China. I consider this a hi-end appliance simply because when you can get a coffee maker at Walmart for $9.99 when you are spending something north of $150.00 the expectations for the appliance are much higher.
I would reccomend this version to anyone so long as they are available.
