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:
I really like the design of this coffeemaker, which is why I kept trying it. My first one lasted about 4 months before it just quit working. The second began leaking coffee out of it instead into the carafe within a week. i returned that one, thinking it was just a defective one, but the third one began having the same problem of leaking coffee all over my counter after having it for about a month. CR really needs to change the rating on this product due to the obviously poor manufacturing.
How long have you owned it:
Three-to-six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
