This is because its automatic shut off feature safely turns off the coffee maker after two hours, lessening your worries about leaving the machine switched on for hours. With its brew strength selector, you can easily brew different batches with different tastes and aroma. And if you love pouring a cup of coffee even if the brewing process is not yet finished, the pause and serve feature allows you to do so.

For those who want a water filtration adaptable unit, this may not be the right choice. And because this unit is available only in white, some consumers may be turned off by the exterior design. White often makes brown coffee stains more noticeable. This can be a nuisance if you don't get to wash or clean your coffee maker immediately after use.

Some consumers have also claimed that this model doesn't look sturdy. And because the reservoir doesn't have enough water level windows, it's easy to overpour water when filling the machine.

Makes good enough coffee. but when filling machine, or pouring coffee it spills water everywhere!
Also is not easy to clean.
Lid on top often pops open and then steams.
Won't buy another one!!!!

If you are one of those persons who cannot start your day, without a fresh and just brew coffee you are going to love this coffee maker, Proctor Silex 48571 12 Cup Coffee Maker.

The first thing is that is really affordable. So you will not have to waste time and money buying expensive coffee in the usual coffee shops.

I just bought it two weeks ago to replace my old coffee maker, Proctor Silex 43501 that was broken. Has a really neat and elegant design and is lightweight, not like others.

I bought a white one and I am not sure if it comes in Black.
The only thing I did not like, just for the first time I tried to make a cup of coffee, was that is difficult to see the water level. But you get use to it.

Even though is small you can make up to 12 cups of coffee and if you are like me in that sometimes I forgot to turn off the coffee maker, that would be no problem anymore because this coffee maker has auto turn off feature. I am sure you can learn how to use the programmable feature, even if you are not an expert you would be able to setup.

Another important feature is that is really simple to clean, and since you do not have to use coffee filters, you would love it. Remember to keep tour machine clean because if you don’t it will modify the flavor of your coffee, it will make it a little bitter, because it can accumulate bacteria and microorganism in the Brew Basket.

Just try your new proctor 48751 and try to enhance the flavor of your favorite coffee adding cinnamon or flavored sweeteners to taste a different coffee every time.

I hope you enjoy your new coffee maker.
