About - Mr. Coffee BVMC-SJX33GT

The Mr. Coffee BVMC-SJX33GT is part of the coffeemaker test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, drip coffeemaker models like the BVMC-SJX33GT are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.


Brew performance:
The ability to reach 195° to 205° F for five or six minutes, the industry standard for optimal brewing.

Convenience:
Reflects ease of filling the reservoir, placing the filter, gauging the amount of coffee remaining, and cleaning up. It also reflects how clear we judged the controls.

Carafe handling:
Covers handle comfort, tendency to drip while pouring, balance of a full carafe, and how easy it was to empty the last liquid. Models with no score here brew into single-serve cups or are brew-and-dispense models. The latter hold the coffee in a tank; you fill your cup by pressing it against the dispenser lever.

Comment:
the only complaint I have is that the coffee isn't quite as hot as my old Cuisinart DCC 1200, which recently died. Close, but not quite. Perhaps it is due to the fact that I only brew 4 cups at a time. This will do just fine for now.
How long have you owned it:
One-to-three months

Comment:
This coffee pot functioned with no problems with the short time I have had it, but after 2 weeks of cleaning the pot I could not get rid of the plastic taste it leaves in my coffee. Other than making my coffee taste like plasic it functioned perfectly fine. Sometimes during my brewing, the lcd display would get condensation on it.
How long have you owned it:
A month or less
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
This coffeemaker is one of the best and most durable we've ever owned. It has not presented any problems over the two or so years we've owned it. The one teensy-weensy flaw is that the clock needs a backlight. It's very difficult to see when programming.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
