Mr. Coffee 12-cup Switch Coffeemaker
(Round Lake Beach, Illinois, USA)
12 Cup Switch
When it comes to coffee makers I like to keep it simple. That’s why I chose the “switch” model by Mr. Coffee. This is a basic plug-in model that doesn’t have any fancy timers or pre-set functions.
All I do is place a filter with coffee, add water then press the switch to the on position. Within a couple minutes I’m enjoying a fresh brewed cup. You can’t get any simpler than that!
What I like about this machine is the top flips open making the unit easy to fill. There is plenty of space so I rarely have any back-splash. The carafe is a generous size and marked in levels from 4 to 12 cups.
The sides of the unit also have clear marked levels where I can additionally measure how much water is inside. Clean up is easy too. All I do is wipe down the outside with a cloth. The pot is dishwasher safe.
For the internal cleaning, I occasionally use the manufacturer recommended Mr. Coffee Coffeemaker cleaner but you can also clean by running a cycle of vinegar of water.
Prior to this purchase I has a similar drip model by Sunbeam.
I paid a more for that model and the efficiency and durability was equivalent to the Mr. Coffee, which only cost me $20 at Target.
