First let me say before I bought this machine, I had a $300.00 Capresso coffee maker with the built in grinder and still do. It's just on vacation! The reason I bought a new machine was so I could see something different on my counter! With that said, let me get to my review. I saw this machine at Walmart and fell in love with the clean lines and and stainless steel. Went home and read the reviews and as always, not all were good but took a chance anyway and I'm so glad I did. I've had it for 2 years now and it still brews hotter and faster than my capresso ever did and 4hrs later I still have hot coffee! There were reviews that said there were problems with water leaking from the water reservoir and the car at would leak coffee around the seam where the plastic and steel come together. I have not had either of these problems. HOWEVER, there was one review concerning a smell that came from the water reservoir. Mine had this smell from day one and I can't describe it but, after 2 years it's still there. Another review spoke of the clock display being too dark. Mine suffers the same problem but I've learned to live with it. Another review has mentioned that the cleaning light keeps coming on. This must be an isolated problem as I have only seen one or two mentioning this and I do not have this problem. The machine fits beautifully under my cabinet and I don't have to move the machine out to put water or coffee in it. The design is so simple and so easy to use. I have used it every single day for the past two years and have never problems. This is the first Mr Coffee I've had in 35 years and let me say they've come a long way. I absolutely LOVE this machine and HIGHLY recommend it to all my friends. As I said at the beginning of this review, my previous machine had a built in burr grinder. I did miss having fresh ground coffee so I also bought the Mr coffee burr grinder and love it too but that's a whole other review.

I am disappointed with this maker. The clock runs slow, about an hour a day. I have had it about six months, the coffee tastes great but too many problems. The clean light keeps coming on. I clean it per instructions, then the next time I use it, the light comes back on. When this happens it takes about 20 minutes to brew a pot. I have run the clean cycle about 5 times but still problems.

Comments about Mr. Coffee Optimal Brew BVMC-PSTX91 Brewer:

This is our 2nd Mr. Coffee coffee maker like this. Never a problem with either. We had the 1st for a long time and saved the carafe when we bought the 2nd. The only reason we bought the 2nd was because the first was slowing down and needed to be cleaned more.

Can't see clock display

By 

from Bulverde, TX, United States

Verified Buyer

Comments about Mr. Coffee Optimal Brew BVMC-PSTX91 Brewer:

If there is any light on in the kitchen, you cannot see the clock display. Setting the time is a bit difficult since you have to turn out all the lights and use a flashlight to find the buttons, once you have the button you have to turn that off so you can see the numbers changing. And yes, it's on the "bright" setting. Other than that, it makes a good pot of coffee.

Outstanding Pot of Coffee

By 

from Rexford, NY

Comments about Mr. Coffee Optimal Brew BVMC-PSTX91 Brewer:

I've been using this coffee maker for almost six years. It makes an outstanding pot of coffee, BUT you need to use good coffee to begin with. Not Folgers, or some other low-end, weak, drip coffee ground. Also, I've found that I need to grind my beans a little finer, and I use a brown, non-bleached, filter for better flavor. One last thing, the included water filter has always made it taste worse. Chuck it.

Awesome machine!

Comments about Mr. Coffee Optimal Brew BVMC-PSTX91 Brewer:

Bought this coffee machine a week ago. And I Love it!
This is my first Mr Coffee product. Previously used either Krupps or Cuisinart. This time I checked reviews of machines carefully along with features. My Mr Coffee is a winner! Love all the features and coffee tastes great. Keeps hot for at least 3 hours & tastes as good as the first cup! Even after that time, it's still warm so the thermal feature works great!
Would definitely recommend.

STAY AWAY!

By

Comments about Mr. Coffee Optimal Brew BVMC-PSTX91 Brewer:

A week after we bought it, it started overflowing from the brew basket. The carafe leaks when you pour, and it is not the lid, it is the actual carafe itself. Leaks into the internal of the main body while brewing. Requires weekly cleaning even though we use the carbon filter AND filtered water. In short, a complete nightmare..

Very Disappointed, Did not Expect That.

By 

from Franklin Park, NJ

Verified Buyer

Comments about Mr. Coffee Optimal Brew BVMC-PSTX91 Brewer:

I clean the machine as instructed and after cleaning the water will not move through reservoir. The machine is working but the water just stays in the reservoir. What a disappointment...The base of the unit has rusted and the screws are all rusted out. The machine should not rust like that, its disappointing. Perhaps a different unit will not rust.

Comments about Mr. Coffee Optimal Brew BVMC-PSTX91 Brewer:

I just bought this coffee maker Thursday. I had problems at 1st the pot had coffee running all over my counter. I noticed that it's didn't have a filter (all my older coffee makers had a reusable one). So I had to go and buy a pack of paper filters and I haven't had any problems since. This pot gives me the same taste that I get from some of my favorite coffee shops. I love everything about this machine.

I like the pot, but I HATE this coffee maker.

By 

from Nashville, TN, United States

Verified Buyer

Comments about Mr. Coffee Optimal Brew BVMC-PSTX91 Brewer:

This is the second time I have bought this particular style from Mr. Coffee on the hope that the last one we had was just a fluke , but no. Repeatedly this pot overflows whenever we brew anything over 6 cups. Even at 6 cups it will do a partial brew where I think it is done brewing, pull out the pot to get a cup and it starts brewing again while the pot is out of the coffee maker. Not only does this make a mess but it makes the first cup very weak. I hate when people only do negative reviews so I will say once the coffee maker is done brewing the carafe keeps the coffee warm for a very long time which I love. Also, the carafe is super strong and does not break if it is dropped(which is how we lost our last coffee maker and carafe thanks 2 year old!). Maybe there is a secret I don't know on how to make this coffee maker work, but this is the second one I have owned and not only I but numerous friends and family have all had the overflow situation.

Comments about Mr. Coffee Optimal Brew BVMC-PSTX91 Brewer:

I got this almost 3 years ago, wonderful product. However the display no longer illuminates. Unfortunate, since now i cant use the delay brew feature. It was easier to prepare my coffee and set my desired time to start brewing. Is there a fix for this? If not i will end up purchasing a new coffee maker.

By

Comments about Mr. Coffee Optimal Brew BVMC-PSTX91 Brewer:

I was so excited to purchase this machine. The machine does make a nice cup of coffee. However, a few months after purchasing this machine the display started to go dim and now the information it provides is useless because I can't see it. This machine is way overpriced for the quality of the product. I can only hope Mr. Coffee will provide a solution as they say their products should last for YEARS.

Mediocre Temperature Maintenance

By 

from Roebuck, SC, United States

Verified Buyer

Comments about Mr. Coffee Optimal Brew BVMC-PSTX91 Brewer:

The pot seems well-insulated, but the lid leaves much to be desired. It allows heat to slowly escape, which drops the temperature of the coffee from hot to tepid after about an hour.

Hot Mess!!!

By 

from Milwaukee, WI, United States

Verified Buyer

Comments about Mr. Coffee Optimal Brew BVMC-PSTX91 Brewer:

The coffee maker leaks all over the counter top and the grounds overflow in the filter basket. We have tried paper filters and permanent filters. We have tried a variety of coffee grinds and quantity of coffee. If you want to make weak coffee it probaby won't overflow. There is a huge design flaw in this system. I am really disappointed.

So disappointed

By 

from Houston, TX, United States

Verified Buyer

Comments about Mr. Coffee Optimal Brew BVMC-PSTX91 Brewer:

Me Coffee sent us a new one after the first broke before a year was out. I was happy at first. But I am back to having to clean it per instructions now once a month. I use filtered water, I do everything right. But this is high maintenance and not worth it. I normally love their products and don't have issues. There is a serious design flaw in this. I'm sorry too because when it works, the coffee is HOT (yay!!) and it brews fast.
