The coffee is just as you want it, great flavour and hot. You won’t to better, and i have other really expensive machines. Not as fiddly or messy as presses.
Fantastic coffee maker coffee stays nice and warm after an hour , great results.
Best filter machine we’ve ever had. It was bought to replace a creaking morphy richards and doesn’t disappoint. I really like the insulated pot which keeps the coffee hot for ages without stewing the brew. The flavour control works well too.
- Real Quality
- Highly recommend
- Perfect – (would love a bigger version)
I don’t regret getting the thermos carafe – the coffee definitely stays warm for a good 6-8hrs after brewing.
This machine makes an excellent brew in double quick time. The insulated jug keeps the coffee at a great drinking temperature for an hour or more. The controls are super simple and the water level indicators etc are all crystal clear. I just wish i could find a gold permanent filter for it – maybe next time i am in the usa. Update – well, one year on and one month out of warranty, this coffee maker has died. This am it fused my kitchen and then stopped working completely. Not really value for money when it only lasts a year. I am disappointed with melitta quality in this case.

The trick with this super easy machine is to warm the themos flask (the jug) – i didn’t buy the version with a timer because i really really wanted a hot cup of coffee and all ‘thermos flasks’ need a warm before use so this is no different. I put a bit of boiling water in the jug, give it a swirl for a minute,. Then switch on – 10 – 15 mins later a whole pot of lovely hot coffee every time. Can’t comment on durability because we’ve only had it a month (used every day, sometime twice) but really there’s not much that can go wrong.
Makes great coffee fast, and keeps it hot, without stewing it on a hotplate.
Having worked my way through a lot of filter coffee makers over the years, all of which disappointed in some way, i alighted on this melita. It is elegant and very well made – and it makes superb coffee. Plus, it has a flask and no heated base, so the coffee stays hot for a couple of hours without stewing. Plus it uses paper filters and not these woeful filter baskets. The only downside is that, while it claims to make 12 cups or 8 mugs, i have only ever managed 5 mugs. That apart, this is a quality product.
Not so many filter coffee machines around these days so pleased to find this one. Keeps the coffee hot better than some machines and has a good capacity.
Fullfils all expectations, happy with purchase.
Nice piece of kit, well designed, easy to clean, i like the clear top water tank, my previous coffee machine ended up with ‘bits’ ( i’m not sure of what ) in the water tank though it was ten years old. Quality and taste of coffee produced is good, an around good piece of kit.
Looks great and makes a nice cup of coffee quickly and easily.
Makes great coffee in a short amount of time.
We bought this coffee pot not realising it’s a thermal pot lol. Now we don’t have to worry if we forget to switch coffee pot off and coffee remains lovely and hot but doesn’t start to stew like regular coffee pots do with normal hot plate. You do have to treat it carefully but the pros out way any cons. Love that i can touch the pot or set it anywhere without worry of burning.
Fantastic machine, i love it. The ability to change strength is perfect and the auto water detection means you can make as much as you want. If you do the full jug it’s easily 4 large mugs. And stays warm ages the less coffee in the jug the quicker it cools.
The machine works well – easy to read fill level markings and a good ‘pourer’ – no unwanted splashes. Be aware, the intensity regulator works well, so don’t crank it up too far straight away.
We particularly like the insulated coffee pot which means you can take the pot straight to the table and it doesn’t burn the table surface. The machine turns off shortly after the coffee is made which saves on electricity and means no over strong coffee if left on the machine base for a while. There are two possible downsides – one is the glass lined pot – drop it and you could have an expensive replacement to buy and, because of the glass, thermos type, interior, it constantly leaves a bit off coffee in the pot – a bit of a niggle when the coffee is so nice. If these two points bother you go for the brushed steel pot version (melitta therm timer) – very similar but a stainless steel jug – no glass to break and drains to the last drop of coffee.
I purchased this coffee maker as i got sick of wasting coffee in standard machines when they go cold. I am for the most part happy with the item. It makes lovely coffee and is simple and easy to use. The one annoyance is that the jug spills coffee all over the unit when i pour it out. I have no way of contacting the seller on my order history either. Great product with a small downfall.
Many years ago we had this type of coffee machine. I was very pleased to find a modern version. Our old hotplate filter machine had burned out like they all do eventually so i ordered this as a replacement. It keeps the coffee hot and does not give it that bitter burnt taste you get from hotplate machines. I am very satisfied with my purchase.
Not sure what the pouring nozzle issues were, but mine doesn’t miss a drop. Damn fine coffee maker indeed.
Review for the look iv not the therm version. Smart, well made and easy to use. Only negatives are that i wish the hot plate stayed on longer, it’s under the 45 mins billed, and i think is should be cheaper.
Excellent machine-keeps the coffee warm rather than it stewing on a hotplate.
