Continental Coffee Maker - Mfr. model #CE23611
We aren't avid coffee drinkers in this house so we decided that we didn't need an expensive coffee maker. We got what we paid for. This thing is a real piece of junk. My husband and I were very unhappy with almost everything about this machine.
The design is more than flawed. Even with top of the line filters and coffee, the coffee comes out terrible. We've tried to not follow the cup measurement readings on the machine as we found them considerably off. But even then, the coffee never seems to come out a consistent taste and texture. I wasn't happy with the instruction booklet either. The directions were very vague and not meant for someone who is not an expert in coffee making.
There are no fancy options associated with this machine. It is bare bones and that may be an understatement. The burner gets too hot too fast and burns the coffee quicker than we can drink it. The place where you pour the measured water is totally inaccessible and therefore we end up pouring more water on the counter than in the machine itself.
The coffee sputters out of the machine at the drip point and will burn you if you're standing too close. Not a machine to have if you have small children wandering the kitchen. The plug is so short that there is no hope of moving it away from the plug, making it very inconvenient if you have any thing else on your counter.
We ended up breaking the coffee pot when my husband hit it just right on the corner of the dishwasher and spent almost exactly the same price just to get another coffee pot that would fit on the badly designed burner. All in all, we were not happy or satisfied with this machine and I would not recommend this machine to anyone else.
