Mr Coffee Elite Model # MPX23 0399H
While looking for a coffee maker, I wanted to make sure it was quality, made by a reputable company, and had all the features I needed. I believe I found all those in my Mr. Coffee Elite coffee maker. Part of the reason I choose this unit is because it is equipped with an automatic timer. With my old maker, it was a pain to get up each morning and wait for the coffee to be done.
Now, I just simply place coffee and water in the unit, flip the switch to auto and its always prepared before I wake up in the morning. The built-in clock and auto timer was very easy to program and hasn’t let me down yet. Additionally, the swing out and removable basket allows me to put the coffee in easily without causing a mess.
If making a pot without the auto timer, the unit usually has the coffee prepared within a few minutes.
There are a few draw backs, however. I’ve found that the actual pot has begun to pour a little awkwardly. At times, the coffee will run out of the pot and drip down the side causing a little bit of a mess.
In addition, if I choose to leave the coffee maker on for longer periods, it tends to allow the coffee to become cold. Normally this isn’t an issue as I drink most of my daily coffee quickly in the morning, however can be a bit of a pain with guest.
I’ve owned the unit now for approximately 6 months and really find it’s a fine product. Compared to my old makers, I believe it is a much better value. I choose to get a black machine to match other appliance and its design seems to fit right in. It cleans up very nicely and is actually very quiet while operating. I would definitely recommend this product.
