I am in love with my Keurig! I replaced a regular old coffee maker with my Keurig and don't regret it one bit. It's SO convenient, fast, and customizable. You can have any flavor coffee in 2 minutes! HIGHLY recommend!!!

This is probably the coolest, chicest coffee maker I've ever owned in my life. I love the modern look of it, and the fact that it has one button to control it all. So onto the details: It looks chic, modern and uncomplicated; the look of it is totally on par and I love the way you can see the bubbles in the water reservoir when it's making the coffee. Plus, this is much easier to clean the water reservoir than a traditional reservoir-in-the-back coffee maker that can get a touch of mold if not cleaned thoroughly and often. The stainless steel carafe keeps the coffee steaming hot, and I like that as opposed to having a hot plate below like in a traditional coffee maker since we have two little ones. (For testing purposes, I brewed a few cups without the coffee at 12 p.m. and the carafe kept it so hot it had steam coming off of it at 7 p.m.!!!) I did have a bit of trouble determining exactly how to use the automatic timer, but after reviewing the accompanying booklet (which was easy to read and pretty dang explanatory without being complicated), my husband and I were able to get it quickly. I'm not a huge fan of the center portion of the carafe having to come out to pour the coffee, but if that's my only complaint, then I'm JUST fine. You can tell that this is the "barista brain" coffee maker. We used plain ol' Folgers Hazelnut coffee and it had *much* more flavor and boldness than it did when we used our former Hamilton Beach coffee maker. Since it is so bold, we use half of the recommended coffee amount and it tastes wonderful! I am definitely recommending this to anyone registering for their wedding (or just in the market for a new coffee maker), because I have been *very* impressed with it. I had no idea OXO even made coffee makers before this, but I'll definitely be considering them highly when I'm in the market for small appliances!

I was sick of my keurig and buying pricey Kcups and wanted to go back to being able to have multiple cups of coffee on the mornings! The mr. Coffee maker is awesome! It is a reasonable price and the best part I can set a timer so I can wake up and smell the coffee!! It's nice to be able to wake up and just walk to the kitchen and pour a cup of coffee instead of having to prepare and wait. I never on a million years thought I'd choose a mr coffee over a keurig! But hands down k love my simple mr coffee maker!

This is a scrappy no-frills machine that gets the job done! After going through a few expensive coffee makers throughout college that always seemed to break or malfunction - I decided I would take this matter to Starbucks - every.single.morning. However, I wised up a couple of years back and decided to purchase this bad boy "just to get through" until I could afford something with a few more bells and whistles. But there has been no need - other than the fact it makes a great cup of delicious hot coffee, let me just say it was designed with a lot of form and function. Also, to reiterate, my favorite feature of this machine is it makes and keeps the coffee **HOT** Some machines do not.

I've been a loyal Bodum French press user for over 10 years. I love how simple it is, yet how good the coffee is that it brews. The Chambord French Press is beautiful but also highly functional and well-made. The press easily comes apart for running each part through the dishwasher and really making sure it gets clean. The glass carafe can be a bit fragile if you remove it from the metal holder, so I tend to keep it in the metal frame when I run it through the dishwasher to prevent breakage. The key to getting great coffee out of a French press is to use a very coarse grind (using a burr grinder will help to make sure it's coarse yet even), and then figuring out the perfect steep timing for your preferences (for me, that's 4 minutes). I also love how unlike a paper filter, the French press doesn't absorb all the good oils from beans, so you'll get them in your final cup.

I LOVE THIS COFFEE MAKER! I am a huge fan of iced coffee so when I heard that this coffee maker had the capability to make iced coffee, I had to have it. The water reservoir makes it easy to keep water stocked in it and the rest is quite easy to use - you just add ground coffee like any other drip coffee maker. There are four different sizes of coffee you can brew as well as three different strengths as well as the iced coffee setting. The decanter actually makes the coffee very cold with ice in it! And the taste of the coffee is on a different level. If you love strong and bold coffee, then you need the Ninja coffee bar!

I bought this item for a relative for Christmas. They loved it so much that I went and bought myself one shortly thereafter. I love the Hamilton Beach FlexBrew Coffee Maker because you can use either a pod cup or you can use ground coffee in the machine to make your coffee. It's like you have the best of both worlds!

This is a great little stove top espresso maker! definitely a must have for someone who is looking for an espresso maker, but does not want to spend a whole lot of money. Not quite as "fancy" as a modern espresso maker, but it gets the job done, and the final product is potent enough to make most espresso drinks.
