Mr. Coffee 12-cup Programmable Dishwashable Coffee Maker
Black and chrome Mr. Coffee 2097827 is a 12-cup capacity programmable Coffee Maker with an advanced water filter, a large reusable filter, and the parts that can be washed in the dishwasher. The average customer rating is 4.8 out of 5 stars by 14 customers at the time of this review.
Thanks to the simplistic design any parts that come in contact with water or loose coffee grounds can be removed and placed in the dishwasher for easy cleaning. A cleaner coffee machine means better tasting cups of coffee without the bitterness. Please note that the coffee maker motor base, the plug, the power cord and the electrical base are not dishwasher safe and shouldn’t be immersed in the water.
There is a grab-a-cup auto pause button that you can press for getting a cup of coffee before the brewing finishes. Any impurities like chlorine and calcium are removed from coffee with the built-in water filter. You need to purchase the replacement cartridges when you need to continue using it after the first one. And the water filter should be changed monthly if you use the coffee machine on a daily basis. The bigger brew basket can hold about 25% more grounds than the other Mr Coffee brand 12-cup coffee makers.
It has the auto clean cycle and the 4-hour automatic shut-off function. Your coffee pot will be kept warm for up to 4 hours. You can use the Brew Later button to set up the coffee to start brewing for you in the morning Mr. Coffee 2097827 weighs 7.5 pounds and measures 13.8 x 9.3 x 14.4 inches. This specific model is easier on the eyes than the previous Mr. Coffee models. The dish-washable feature of most parts of this low cost coffee machine is a great selling point for it.
You are welcome to use the disposable paper filters for a smoother and less bitter coffee as the paper is better at trapping the bitter sediments of the coffee grounds. And the reusable filter will give you a more robust taste with the full flavor in your cup. The rich coffee oils are brewed through the very small holes of the reusable filter. If you want a stronger brew, simply use more ground coffee as there is not strong coffee button or option. It is a durable coffee maker overall but the glass could break if you knock it too hard. The cord could be a longer but it is nota huge deal either.
*Mr. Coffee is a very good brand to use for coffeemakers and we do not hesitate to recommend this specific unit. It comes with one year limited warranty in case anything goes wrong.
