Proctor Silex 43571 12-cup auto

Proctor-Silex 43571
Automatic Drip Coffeemaker

We've had this coffee maker for quite some time, and it has served us well. We drink a pot of coffee every morning, 365 days a year. This maker has kept up with us almost the entire way.

I say "almost," because during this past summer, the maker finally started to fail on us. I've had many coffee makers in the past that have easily broken glass pots that are expensive to replace. The Proctor Silex glass seems to be tougher than most; even through all the abuse we've put it through, the pot is still pristine without even a chip.

The problem is with the circuitry in the "On" button and the "Auto" button. During the summer, the on button failed. We now have to unplug the maker, plug it back in, and set the clock for 12:00 and the timer for 12:01 to get it to brew. We're quite used to it now, but we know it's a matter of time before every button fails. I can already tell that the "Auto" button is starting to fail because it only works about 75% of the time.

Also - cleaning this maker is a bit of a pain because of all the little nooks that coffee grounds can get into. If you're the type of person who likes to completely clean out your maker at regular intervals, this can be a pain too.

I can't really complain though. Considering that it's fairly inexpensive, the maker has out performed coffee makers I've owned that cost twice as much.

You get what you pay for

I bought this coffee maker in March 2011. I wanted a clock and a pause feature. That's what I got; but I didn't count on the print washing completely off the entire front of the machine, including the off and on buttons. Also, the clock is hard to see and the buttons are very sensitive. I frequently bump the machine and "reset" the clock-very annoying. The heating pad is also rusting already. I wouldn't buy this again.

cheap and tasteless

Made the mistake of trying to save a few bucks. Now I'm drinking coffee flavored water.

Poor machine
by: John P. Chapman

We purchased this model about 3 months ago. It has been cleaned with vinegar and with baking soda and distilled water but none have solved its problem of hissing and losing half of its water as steam. We gave up and purchased a cheaper Black and Decker which works much better.

he heating pad is rusting through
by: Theresa Huber

I purchased this coffee maker at K-Mart on 01-11-08. The heating pad is rusting through. Is there a recall on this model? I've purchased many coffee pots and have never experienced this problem in the past.
