Mr. Coffee FT series
Last Christmas my mother purchased the Mr. Coffee FT series coffee maker for me. This coffee maker has many positive features and overall I have been very satisfied with it. I like the look of the pot. It is very streamlined and the stainless steel detailing matches the accessories in my kitchen.
The pot has many helpful features including a warming plate that keeps your coffee warm for up to two hours, brew interruption which allows you to pause the brew cycle so you can sneak a cup before the pot is finished, and a delayed brew start which allows you to prepare the coffee ahead of time and start the brew cycle later.
A feature which has not worked out so well for me is the water filter. At first I thought this was a great idea, but since I can't find any replacement filters in stores this option seems pointless to me.
Another problem I have with this coffee maker is that the glass pot is hard to clean. The design makes it had for me to fit my hand into the pot, and the glass is always stained regardless of how often I clean it, or what I clean it with. The last negative thing I would have to say about this coffee maker is that I don't like the way you have to pour water through slots on the lid. I wish there was a larger well that would make it easier to perform this function.
I do however like how the amount of water/servings is displayed on both sides of the pot. Overall I have been very satisfied with this coffee maker and would suggest it to my friends.
All of my favorite features have been reliable and I love using this coffee maker as an alarm clock (using the delayed brew system). It is the best part of waking up for me!
