Nice Coffee Maker that Thinks
9/30/2009

Customer review by BigJohnT

5.0 stars 9/30/2009 by BigJohnT
by BigJohnT

I have enjoyed using this coffee maker. I do understand that one really needs to read the manual first because this model does have some FEATURES that need to be understood, else they might be considered a flaw. Example, after about every 60 brew cycles, the "needs cleaning" cycle lamp illuminates, warning that it is time to clean the scale from the inside. Until this is done, the machine may "remind you" with shortened brew cycles until you do so. Although this can be bypassed or over-ridden, to me this is a feature that keeps the brewed coffee fresh tasting and extends the life of the maker. What a value to me! I also loved the ease of setting the clock and auto timers. I especially like the ability to change the auto "switch off" setting, the warmer temperature setting, the brew settings, etc, etc, etc. WOW! The manual is downloadable for this machine, Get it and read it if you want to be impressed! I was also impressed that the water filter packs were readily available at even my little local WalMart store, unlike the filter packs for another major brand maker that I replaced with this one. Thank you GE and WalMart for bring this great product to me!

Reengineered Model Works Great

Bought mine on Black Friday (over 5 months). Been working great. Supposedly the recent versions now available in the store model have been reengineered to overcome previous reported problems. I do religiously clean mine as per the instructions when the cleaning light comes on. I also replace the filter during these cleanings. This coffee maker does produce a tasty pot of coffee. It includes a "Gourmet" setting that actually does produce excellent results (can even make Maxwell House taste good). I'm not sure how it does it? Maybe it increases water temperature and changes flow settings. Whatever it does, it does it well. If you're one of those people looking for that coffee maker that can make Duncan Donuts store coffee taste like from the shop, this might be for you. Just noticed that the price has been rolled back! Go get yours now. I don't think you'll be disappointed.

I purchased this unit and have been using it for months. It has worked flawlessly. As far as the negative reviews regarding sediment and the handle falling off, both are things that are explainable. The sediment issue is either related to the coffee being ground too fine. This is not an expresso maker. Secondly, the handles should always be washed and checked before use. There are simple set screws that attach it to the glass caraffe, those should be checked regularly the same as the handles on cooking pots. This is a great coffee maker, the best price and the most features.

This coffeemaker has a lot of great features and it quickly has become my favorite kitchen appliance. Love the mesh drip basket and how quickly the coffee brews. The separate reservoir where you pour in the water has a shield that eliminates the problem of spilling the water as you fill the machine. Because it brews at a higher temperature the coffee almost has a "smooth" taste. You can set it to be ready at a certain time (as opposed to setting the brew time) and it will beep when it is ready to remind you. I have used it every day for 6 months and it consistently produces a awesome pot of coffee. This is a great machine for coffee snobs on a budget!

We have been through many coffee makers over the years, the last one cost well over double this unit. I did not expect much, but frankly, this makes very good coffee, has a surprising number of flexible options, and is designed very well. The water intake is sized and positioned so you don't tend to slop water, the basket is easy and convenient to use, buttons make sense and settings are easy to use. It brews quickly and quietly, maybe the only oddity is that the blue leds are quite bright...for us, in the kitchen, this really isn't a bother at all, but to some it maybe. Bottom line, it brews a good cup of coffee, it's designed well, the price is great, and replacement filtes/charcoal filter is right at Wal Mart...GOOD STUFF!

Just purchased it, this coffee maker is great. You can set the temperature of the brew, and the "keep warm" temp. Tells you when to clean it, and then it cleans it for you. Beeps when brewing is done, and beeps again when it shuts of, you can even adjust the time to have it on after the brewing, push a button and it tells you how old the coffee is. It has a Gourmet setting where it brews on a longer cycle, and uses more water to brew it. Has a charcoal filter too. I noticed two things, one is that the l.e.d display is bright, its blue and not bad, but it could be dimmer. The other thing is, as it brews, the water fill lid is closed, when its done, to release steam, it opens slightly, as the steam cools, the lid closes up again. Not sure why it does, but it does.

This is a great coffee maker. Notice that the key-pad is above the coffee pot, not below. This makes for a no-mess setting. Having all the Programming above the coffee and warming plate, prevents future problems. I usually go through a new coffee maker a year, but this one has lasted a lot longer, now I need a replacement carafe, due to my negligence.

My wife and I bought this at the end of November. Our old Mr.Coffee was not doing a good job at all, so we knew it was time for a new coffeemaker. I was going to wait till Christmas but our old coffeemaker totally died and we need our coffee in the morning. So I went to the local Wal-Mart and bought this one. I am glad I did. This coffeemaker is very fast. We usually make about 10 cups and it makes that in just a few minutes. It beeps 3 times when its done so you know when the brewing has ended. I saw in some other reviews that some people don't like this feature or think its loud but I find it helpful and although it is certainly audible it is not loud. It has one of those screen reusable filters but I find those messy so I use a paper one instead and it works with those too. It has a splash guard that keeps you from making a mess when you are pouring the water in. I used to spill some every morning with my old machine so this is another great feature. And we paid more for this coffeemaaker than what walmart.com is selling it for now. One possible negative:The keep warm mode. After two hours, the machine automatically turns off. This is a great safety feature, but if you want it to stay hot longer there is a mode to keep the coffee hot with three settings. Well, even on the highest setting the coffee is just warm and not hot. Of course, there is a very simple solution... turn the maker off and turn it back on. That's all you have to do to keep the coffee hot but since the keep warm mode doesn't work well I thought I would mention it. It is still a great coffeemaker.

I rellay like this coffee maker, over the last few I have owned. However, it does have some minor issues/flaws: 1) It would be great is the display could be muted/dimmed. Though it does make a great night light that can be seen from the street. 2) You have to push up when removing the carafe after making cofee or it will drip slightly (or pour, if it has been off for awhile due to condensation) onto the burner. 3) Though the TSB setting is nifty, I have no use for it. I tend to go through through the pot before it would ever matter. 4) If you have older wiring/etc, expect disco lights after it brewed coffee/keeping it warm. 5) The default setting for the coffee is HOT and I had to turn it down. Other than those issues and the pill filter cost mentioned, it has been a great coffee pot.

I LOVED this coffee maker, but . . . . after only a little less than a year it JUST STOPPED WORKING! It turns on, but refuses to brew. It maybe an easy fix, but I tried the troubleshooting tips in the manual with no result. As a result, I will be returning to walmart to buy another coffee maker, something other than GE.

I am the person who always buys the $20-something coffee pot and settles for the mediocrity that it offers. For 20 dollars more I am amazed at this coffee maker. We drink stronger coffee and this larger filter gives us the ability to use more coffee without seeing coffee grinds in our coffee cup. You do need to read the manual to get the most out of this coffee maker. You can adjust to warming time for your coffee. It beeps to let you know it's finished brewing. Of course, there is a option to preset the coffee to brew at a future time. It has a cleaning option. The charcoal filter has to be replaced every 60 brews... Not a big deal. It actually tastes better with the filter. I like the separate openings to pour in the water or add your coffee versus your cheaper coffee pot which has only one. To the person who gave it only one star... When I bought this at Wal-mart they gave me a separate warranty receipt that gaurantees this product for two-years or they'll replace it. That nice to have when you buy a lemon.

I first used this GE coffee maker at a condo I stayed at and really liked it. Shortly after, the Delonghi I had, thankfully died (hated that thing) and I bought the GE. I've had this GE coffee maker for over a year now. It has plenty of nice options and I have not had any issues continuing to brew coffee after the clean light has come on. It's fast at just 8 minutes to brew a full pot. A few minor things. If you try to pour your first cup too fast from a full pot, it will drip. After that first pour, no more drips. The carafe lid also has a tendenancy to flip open when pouring. Another thing is when you open the brewing lid to dump the grounds, the condensate on the underside of the lid will drip all over the top of the machine. The way to avoid that is to first open the water fill lid and then lift open the brew lid. That way the condensate drips into the water tank area. In spite of a few minor deficiencies, I really like this coffee maker.

The majority of the reviews about this machine are very accurate. I am extremely happy with the purchase of this coffee maker and I don't even drink coffee! It is true that some of the finer ground coffees get past the machine's filter as some of the reviewers have expressed. This is easily solved by putting a small paper filter inside the machine's actual filter and Voila! No more grounds in the coffee! Love that it lets you know when it's time to clean the machine and also what time the last batch of coffee was made. There are also so many other features I don't even fully know about yet. My brother and fiance are both heavy coffee drinkers and they love the quality of the coffee that comes out of it. You will not sacrifice taste just because you are not spending over a hundred dollars on this machine.

Our old coffee maker which lasted 5 or 6 years brewed its last cup and went to the recycle bin in the sky.. My wife went to our local Walmart and did what she does there often (spends money).. She brought home a shinny new GE Gourmet coffee maker bristling with all kinds of digital technology.. I was even impressed with the way it looked and the price she paid for it.. She proudly loaded the coffee and water and pressed the brew button...... This is when the problems started, our lights started flickering then the circuit breaker for the 2 outlets on the counter one of which is a GFI that controls the circuit and the vent hood over the stove tripped off.. Bewildered with this event I unplugged the coffee maker and trekked to the breaker box and reset the circuit breaker.. Thinking that maybe the 15 amp GFI circuit was the cause we tried the 20 amp appliance circuit that the fridge and microwave use.. Once again she pressed the brew button and once again the lights started to flicker.. Quickly she pulled the plug out of the wall and uttered @# .. She quietly cleaned out the machine and repackaged it and took it back to the store.. So here we sit without a coffee maker drinking hot cocoa.............. The only reason it got 1 star in the other items is because it would not let me give it a 0 !!
