grounds in coffee & solution
by: Gail

I had grounds dripping into my coffee pot at first. It would drip out through the spout on top , I fixed the problem, I got brown heavier coffee filters and it stopped. The cheaper filters were bending over.

Grounds in the coffee
by: Anonymous

I have a serious problem with this coffee maker. It splashes grounds over the side of the paper filter and they end up in the coffee. Probably if you bought the water filter this wouldn't happen. I'm planning to throw this away and buy something else.

very happy
by: Austin Ellsworth

I have the Mr. Coffee SK13 coffee maker. I absolutely love the coffee maker because it’s very quick so right when I wake up I will have a few cups ready to be poured within three minutes. Although it’s a rather basic model it has many features that are absolutely necessary such as the Brewing Pause ‘n Serve feature where you can pour your coffee while the coffee maker is still brewing without it spilling every which way all over your counters.

Also it has a built in water filter which removes ninety seven percent of chlorine for better coffee. I also enjoy the removable filter basket, so instead of handling the tough task of removing the filter without grains dropping on the floor, I can simply remove the whole basket and dump the paper filter right into the trash.

Next, you know that you are bound to forget to turn your coffee maker on expecting coffee once in a while, right? Well this coffee maker has a light on the switch that will indicate the power status, on or off. Next underneath the coffee maker is space to store your extra slack on your power cord.

Finally, the see through window on each side of the coffee maker allows you to see the amount of water in the tank. Over all for the price of this coffee maker it deserves a ten out of ten. Even though it is a rather low end model I really, really love it.

I recommend Mr. Coffee brand brewers for everyone, I have always used that brand and their coffee makers always last a very long time.

But if I were you I would try to get a nicer model then the one I currently have like the JWX27 that has a clock and alarm that will start brewing to the time you set, which is very nifty for those mornings when you do not want to get out of bed.
