With the Melitta Mill & Brew Coffeemaker you can wake up to the freshest, most flavorful coffee imaginable. Go from whole beans to brewed coffee without guesswork, mess or countertop clutter. Just add beans and water, and set the grinder on 1 of 7 settings for coffee as strong or as mellow as you prefer. Stainless steel filter basket eliminates the need for disposable filters, and the convenient drip stop feature allows you to serve while brewing. Coffeemaker has 1 hr. auto shutoff, and electronic LED clock/timer can be set 24 hrs. in advance. 10-cup capacity. No. MEMB1B. Imported. 13-1/4Hx6-7/8Wx9D".
Wake up and smell the coffee--not just freshly brewed coffee but freshly ground coffee for full-bodied flavor. This coffeemaker does everything but serve a steaming cup on a silver tray. For the full experience, here's how it goes: pour water into reservoir (a window gauge shows the desired level up to 10 cups); spoon roasted coffee beans into permanent stainless-steel filter basket (no disposable filters needed); program mill to grind beans as you wish (seven settings, from fine to coarse); set clock to current time of day; program timer to begin automatic grinding and brewing process at the hour and minute you wish; sleep like a baby; savor coffee precisely as you like it when you awake. Ground coffee can be used instead of whole beans, and the whole coffee-making process can be initiated instantly without setting the timer. Other attributes: dripping ceases when the tempered-glass carafe is removed from the nonstick warming plate; shutting down is automatic after one hour to prevent damage; cord stores in the rear of the unit. This is a thoroughly modern coffeemaker, suitable for people who take coffee seriously but crave convenience. --Fred Brack

I bought the MEMB1B .... At the time I think I could only find one other brand with the same combination of features. I really like all the features, functionality and form factor of this model. Every pot of coffee is consistent after finding the right balance of grinding time, beans and water. It's an attractive unit and relatively easy to clean.
But after 6 months of daily use (2 cups a day, gentle handling, never dropped) I was suprised that the side locking buttons for the "mill/brew assembly" just broke off, making it useless. Salton/Melitta honored the warranty and quickly sent me a replacement "mill/brew assembly," so I give them high marks on customer service.
After 9 months of gentle daily use, the "mill/brew assembly lid lock" broke off. This required sending the entire unit back to Salton/Melitta and they shipped me a brand new replacement. So again, I give them high marks on customer service.
Now that my original warranty has run out, I just have to wait until something else snaps off making the unit unusable. Of course, I realize that any machine used daily will eventually wear out, but 2 significant quality problems within 9 months of normal use is not acceptable. I really love having this coffee maker, but even at the current ... price, I'd have to caution others to shop around and inspect other brand units for durability before making a decision to purchase.
~To make cleaning as pain-free as possible, empty the grinds basket as soon as it cools down, or shortly thereafter. I just dump mine in the trash and then rinse the remainder down the sink, but many more seem to dump out easily if I do this sooner, rather than later (as in the next morning when I make coffee again). Basically, I just rinse all the parts well and they do just fine. Very quick and easy, as I keep my coffee maker near the sink anyway.
~Regarding the basket assembly & lid that so many complain about in these reviews: I considered myself forewarned and have just been careful to be sure everything is lined up correctly and settled in place before closing and I have had no problems.
Also, it does seem to use a little bit more coffee than if I grind it myself, but that is a small price to pay for the convenience. Myself, I keep the grind all the way up to 7 to try to compensate for this, and then try to use a little less coffee.
Since I don't always get up at the same time each morning, I tend to just get it ready and then push the button when I do get up, rather than using the timer, but then again, the smell of that coffee going is better than an alarm clock, so I do use the timer function occasionally, too.
From what I've heard/read about the "other" grind-and-brew machine, I'm convinced I got the better bargain: lower price, easier cleanup and wonderful coffee.
Since we got the Melitta, it's been fun getting to try all different kinds of beans, not to mention the taste improvement over pre-ground. The machine is easy to clean and takes up little space. Sure, it's harder to clean than paper filters, but that's to be expected. It's by no means difficult--just rinse under running water. The sound of grinding is considerably quieter than our old coffee mill.
We prefer a strong cup of coffee, and the Melitta produces a dishearteningly weak cup. Fortunately, there is an easy fix. There is a round black lid that fits directly on top of the filter which holds the beans. Not the one attached to the coffee maker; the removable one that has a hole in the top for the water to run through. We cut the center of a standard coffee filter out and put it on top of that lid. This slows the water down enough to give a very strong cup of coffee, which also enables us to save on the amont of beans we use. Since the filter never actually touches the coffee, just plain water, we reuse it until it tears, which is after about 10 pots of coffee.
Also, the latch is a little finicky, so we close the lid gently and readjust as needed if we meet any resistance.
For the price, this machine can't be beat. All the convenience of a regular coffee maker with the taste and flexibility of using whole beans. We would definitely buy it again.
