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.

Just OK

By 

from Monroe, NC, United States

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

This coffeemaker has been a disappointment. After a little more than 1 yr. service, the machine does not brew at the max. temp. anymore, making for poor tasting coffee. The reservoir no longer empties completely so I end up with less coffee than anticipated. Finally, the carafe does not keep the coffee hot for more than thirty minutes, after that we have to heat cups in the microwave. For the money we paid, this is a disappointment.

Love it! We had an old Mr. Coffee maker for almost 4 years, very durable and still works, but we just wanted to upgrade it and this one works awesome, it makes our 6 cups in 5 minutes, and the thermal pot keep the coffee hot a while. plus, no mess on the carafe! Very pleased with this purchase

Dry grounds, brown tasteless hot water

By 

from WV, United States

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

On multiple occasions, I would pull the filter basket out of the machine after the beep to find a puddle of water on top of the water filter. Inside the basket, the grounds were mostly dry. What was in the pot was nothing but brown hot water. It didn't taste or smell like anything but hot water. I followed the suggestion from a post with a similar issue to make sure the grounds were level in the basket, but that did not help. The problem is more the water getting to the grounds in the first place. After the first time this happened, I made a pot with the same amount of both water and grounds. It came out fine. So it's not my method or the water. At this point I do not trust the machine to make a proper pot, and I'm not willing to eat the cost of having to toss every third pot or so.

Great design but clock doesn't work long

By 

from Undisclosed

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

I'm on my second with this one! Had to replace the first because you could no longer read the clock to set the delayed brewing. About 3 months after I bought the second one it did the same thing! I love this coffe maker because it loads water on the side not the top which means I don't have to pull it out from underneath the cabinets! Wish they made more with this design! But the clock is an issue! Hopefully MR Coffee will fix this one day!!

Attractive, but beware

By 

from Connecticut, United States

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

I had this coffee maker for 3yrs now. The digital display has been broken at least a year now, so so long for programming anything on it. It probably broke from the steam, that was coming up, because the front face of the cofeemaker was all wet after every coffee made. The carafe has a seal problem between the polished metal and the plastic top. It leaks. After 2 years, the inside of the carafe looked gross so I tried to clean it and I noticed, that the inner material (not sure what it is) of the carafe was disintegrating and small chunks would float around inside the coffee. It looks rubber, it could be teflon, I don't know. As of now, I'm buying a replacement carafe , but if it starts to develop the same issues, I will have to look elsewhere for a new coffee maker.

Only owned less than 5 months- doesn't work

By 

from Mesa, AZ

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

I bought this coffee maker about 5 months ago and now every time I try to make coffee it just beeps at me. I unplug it, rattle it, tap it and eventually after multiple times it will suddenly start to brew.

Keeps Coffee Hot, BUT. . .

By 

from Cincinnati, OH, United States

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

Had this coffee maker for a year or two. Pros: looks nice, the carafe keeps your coffee hot for several hours, delayed start works well. Cons: Needs frequent cleaning cycles and a new filter every two months or the coffee will be very weak. The spring/plunger in the brew basket breaks very easily. The digital readout is almost too dim to see, even at the brightest setting. All in all, I wouldn't spend the extra money for this model again. Quality is not up to par with the cost.

Clock won't set

By 

from Philadelphia, PA, United States

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

I just got this last night. My husband set the clock and timer for his coffee to be ready in the morning. When we got up we realized it did not brew. Well we realized the time was still at the same time he had set it at. The colon between the hour and minutes does not stay. It only appears briefly during setting.

Loved it for a little bit

By 

from Waxhaw, NC, United States

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

We got this coffee maker for Christmas and happily used it for about a week when it just stopped brewing coffee half way through a brew. Have not been able to get it to brew another drop! Clean light came on (have only used for aprox 7 days!) and even though the clock cycled through 45 minutes and the light eventually turned off after the cycle end chime went off, the full 6 cups of vinegar still sits in my reservoir and the paper filter is bone dry!!! We are bummed : -( We will try to exchange for the sale and start again.

This coffee maker Rocks!

By 

from Jacksonville, FL, United States

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

I love this coffee maker as there is no burner so your coffee doesn't turn into acid in 15 minutes. The vacuum carafe acts like a Yeti cup. The boss!

NO BURNT COFFEE!

By 

from Brighton, MI, United States

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

This is our 3rd Mr. Coffee Optimal Brew unit. My wife and I drink several pots of coffee a day. We just wear them out. The feature we like most about he Optimal Brew is the Thermal Carafe. We never have burnt coffee! The unit brews 10 cups of pretty good coffee, the stainless steel carafe keeps the brew hot without the customary burner, is programmable and self cleaning. If it wasn't any good, we wouldn't have bought 3 of them.

Like it a LOT

By 

from Grand Rapids, MI, United States

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

Had this brewer for over a year now and very pleased. Coffee is hot, everything works well. My only criticism is that the LED display is too faint to read in normal lighting and needs to be brighter. Otherwise I'd give it 5 stars instead of 4.

Terrible experience

By 

from North Carolina, United States

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

We've always used Mr Coffee coffee makers. We purchased this one after the one we used for many years finally quit. From day one the carafe leaked around the top where the metal and plastic are put together. Now when it finishes brewing and we pull the carafe out, the machine drips coffee over the base. The coffee filter basket doesn't completely drain. We should have taken it back but just haven't had the time and didn't want the hassle.

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

this is the second time I bought the same model. both of them after maybe 1 1/2 to 2 years the light for the time and morning" brew start" stopped working. you can't set the timer the brewer itself works fine. if it happened twice i'm guessing it is a defect in manufacturing

Good coffee bad carafe

By 

from Little Rock, AR, United States

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

The coffee maker works as expected. However the carafe leaks every time we pour a cup of coffee. I thought it was us at first, maybe pouring too quickly, but the coffee is actually leaking out of the carafe where the black meets the silver. We've only had the maker for about 2 weeks.

Great Coffee Maker

By 

from West Virginia, United States

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

Had this for about a year, 2 or 3 pots a day. Such freshness and is very hot too.Use less coffee , I guess because it is so hot requires a little less coffee grounds.Almost always entire pot is drank because it does not scorch coffee as it sits as other pots do with burner.I have had cheap makers , 2 B*nns, Black and *****, to my experience this one is the best so far. I dont mess with the program feature, just the clean cycle.
