Melitta Look IV Therm – I am for the most part happy with the item

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.

    This review is from : Melitta Look IV Therm, 1011-10, Filter Coffee Machine with Insulated Jug, Aroma Selector, Black

    I wanted to replace our tassimo with something more genuine and without the wastage of capsules. After researching the options on amazon i decided on the melitta range. After a couple of goes i got the coffee strength and cup size right (the cup sizes on the machine are on the tiny side) and now use daily. I think i would have preferred the brushed steel jug as we live in a hard water area and it shows up on the black jug, but that is just cosmetic. The coffee is kept warm for several hours so when working at home i can make one jug and it keeps half the day.

    Makes great coffee and keeps hot for a time, but as i like really hot coffee perhaps not the best purchase for me. Looks good on the work surface though.

  7. 4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but basic filter machine.

    This review is from : Melitta Look IV Therm, 1011-10, Filter Coffee Machine with Insulated Jug, Aroma Selector, Black

    This is a good version of a basic coffee filter machine. I previously had one of their premium machines with a glass pot and hotplate, but decided to replace after breaking a 3rd jug. I’m not sure the aroma control is anything more than a gimmick though. Downsides are that the tank is a bit fiddly to fill and don’t go above the max fill line, as there is a hole at the back of the tank that acts as an overflow so the water goes all over the counter (i assume this is to prevent you from overfilling the jug) less forgiving than their premium machines costing double, but makes a decent, hot cup of coffee that stays hot for several hours (although don’t expect it to taste as good after an hour or more).

  9. 5.0 out of 5 stars Best filter coffee machine I've used

    This review is from : Melitta Look IV Therm, 1011-10, Filter Coffee Machine with Insulated Jug, Aroma Selector, Black

    Best filter coffee machine i’ve used. Received as a gift from my husband to use at work. I am currently enjoying a piping hot cup of fresh coffee which i brewed nearly 3 hours ago. If you fill the thermal jug with boiling water and leave to sit for a few minutes before brewing, the coffee stays hot for well beyond the 2 hours stated.

    Have downgraded this item from 5 to 4 stars because, unfortunately, it has started leaking after only a few months use. Otherwise, a very good machine and the thermos flask keeps the coffee hot for at least 6 hours.

    All you can expect from a filter coffee machine. Thermal jug is greatth only issue so far is that 1×4 filters seem a little bit too large, but that’s just a slight annoyance rather than something preventing frommcomfortable usage.

    1. 5.0 out of 5 stars Can you be in love with a coffee machine? Think I might be....
      If it was possible to be in love with a coffee machine, then i am in love with this one. Easy to use and clean, durable thermos jug (just don’t drop it) instead of a thin glass jug that breaks at the slightest touch, the thermos jug is why i bought this machine as it keeps the coffee hot for 3 hours (no more reheating). The germans know their coffee machines and i had one similar to this when i lived there 13 years ago, only this one is so much better. No rubbish hotplate, just a simple thermos flask. Oh did i mention the thermos flask?. Also features two strength options so if you’re feeling really sleepy you can increase the strength of your coffee. Thank you melitta, your coffee machine is fantastic.

    1. 4.0 out of 5 stars Makes good coffee, but not very hot
      Makes good coffee, but not very hot. From fresh to hours later, it needs longer and longer in the microwave to bring up to drinking temperature. Having said that, a quick zip in the microwave probably costs less than running a hotplate for hours. Nor does it get as stewed as with a hotplate model, all things considered, i like it – time for another cup i think.
