Melitta Look Therm Selection Filter Coffee Maker – and – Great Coffee Maker

Would like to have given a higher rating but the mess this makes every day means 3 is the best i can do. It leaks coffee so when you remove the jug to serve there is always a real splattering of coffee inside the holder. This is staining despite being promptly cleared up.

This the best coffee maker we’ve had. We love the strength selector (we like strong coffee) and being able to select the strength we want. The coffee is really hot, something else we like. And it stays hot for at least two hours after auto shut off because of the insulated pot, so it’s easy to have that later second cup if you want. At first the auto shut off after fifteen minutes dismayed us – but with that insulated pot it doesn’t matter at all. And we do like an auto shut off so no one rushes off to work and leaves it turned on. We bought the white one as there is a considerable difference in price between it and the black model (not sure why except that black seems to be really in style now). A little more expensive even so than many other seemingly good ones, but we really think it’s worth it.

Could potentially be a good product but sadly will never know as not sold fit for uk electrical system. In my opinion this should not be sold without a uk plug and we have been unable to purchase an adapter with a high enough fuse to make it safe. Has taken a lot of time and effort to get the product able to used and sadly wasted.

Nice looking, easy to use, easy to clean. . But most of all hot coffee for around two hours after making. No more pulling funny faces drinking cold coffee.

A bit more expensive than other filter coffee makers, but the end result is worth the added expense. The jug is a thermos so the heat and flavour are retained, in contrast to cheaper models which use an element to keep the coffee warm, and consequently stew the coffee. I found the brew remained hot for over an hour in the jug with no deterioration in flavour. Using the machine is simple, pour in water to the desired capacity – it can make up to 15 small cups or 10 mugs – then put the desired amount of coffee in the paper filter and turn the setting to the required flavour – weakest to strongest. Although i don’t know why they have this setting, as to get a ‘weaker’ flavour it is only necessary to use less coffee or more water. After a few minutes of gurgling the piping hot coffee is ready to go. The machine switches itself off after ten minutes, and both the machine and the jug are very easy to clean. I was an occasional instant coffee drinker until i bought this, but i am now a regular coffee drinker, and i am still experimenting with various types of coffee, which is all part of the fun.

This is a beautifully designed and built filter coffee machine. Everything fits nicely, and the strength adjustment feature and well insulated stainless steel pot both work well. Expensive, but worth the money.

This is the second one of these, like it very much. Easy to use & make coffee fairly quick.

As a coffee snob who has high expectations of any coffee machine, this has been a good buy. For ease of use, cleaning and keeping coffee hot without it stewing, it is serving me extremely well. The jug is doesn’t pour the final cup as well as the rest of the brew, but for me, this is a minor issue. It needs filter papers, but these compost well, so no complaints on this front either.

Simple easy to use quick no more stewed coffee with the thermal jug, only wish it gave a sound when finished brewing.

I bought this to replace a cheaper glass carafe coffee maker that made unremarkable coffee and had been waiting for an excuse to replace it. The warming plate finally rusted beyond use and i got my wish. I ordered a melitta as am very familiar with the brand and can confirm it’s reputation for making a good cup of coffee is well deserved. I noticed the difference in the taste and quality right away, i could once again taste all the subtle flavours (particularly in the milder blends) i had been missing for two years and no more cooked coffee. I will never go for the quick cheap option again.

I bought this coffee machine and i’m very pleased with it. Excellent coffee and it is kept hot for 3h. Highly recommended plus the auto off feature saves energy.

Great coffee maker used it for our surface repair courses.

This coffee maker is simple to use, looks good, makes good coffee fast, and keeps it hot for ages.

Great machine, quick and easy and keeps the coffee hot for a very long time.

Great coffee maker only down side was it had a continental plug on so has to buy an adaptor, did not see that in the description.

    1. 1.0 out of 5 stars why no uk plug for a coffee maker sold in the uk? - NOT GOOD
      It’s probably a great coffee maker. I’ll know in an hour or so and i give it the benefit of the doubt. Uk so it’s reasonable to assume it’ll arrive with a uk plug. Out of the box it has a plug for continental europe and that’s it. But it’s annoying and, again, if it’s going to be sold on a co. Uk site then the plug should match or the seller should make sure that that detail is clear and present so prospective buyers can know about it.
