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 craftsman ship on the model is poor. The mechanism below the filter that engages the Pause N Pour feature was not seated properly, resulting in coffee continuing to flow when the carafe was removed- rendering the feature useless. Customer service sent me a replacement part, and now the same mechanism has the exact opposite problem - there is a gap between the carafe and the mechanism. To get the Pause N Pour to function properly, I have to set the carafe off-center to allow coffee to flow into the carafe. If I forget, then the basket overflows - which makes the auto-timer feature useless.<br /><br />I've owned many Mr. Coffees over the years -this is by far the lowest quality model that I've ever owned. Very disappointing!

Comment:
This Mr. Coffee maker makes a nice, hot cup of coffee. My unit is nearly 2 years old. The ability to pour while brewing was hit and miss at first but now does not work at all. This feature is not warrantied by Mr. Coffee. The writing wore off the pot in a matter of months. However, the water tank has a measuring guide. So, it's no biggie. I would recommend this unit because it makes a good hot cup of coffee, the reasonable price point, and the fact that it still works at all. I have tried other more pricier brands and they all broke on me before the one-year mark.
