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.

I wanted to like it, but...

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

I love the thermal carafe, and the display is nice, but that's about it. The removable water reservoir is awkward to use, and I've dropped it twice trying to get it to line up properly installing it. That's not as fun as it sounds, especially when it's O'dark:thirty in the morning. The side load coffee cartridge is nice, except the lid holding the chlorine filter gets in the way when I dump it out, and the spent filter ends up rolling out the wrong way and dumping the grounds on the rim of the trash bag. That sucks, but at least it isn't a jug of water! It does brew very quickly, but that means the brew is weak because the grounds don't soak long enough for a truly full flavor. That means you have to add a little bit more to the basket, which will then overflow and end up in the bottom of the pot.

Nice modern looking coffee pot

By

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

A bit on the fancy side w removable water pot and side slide out coffee brewing cup. However, I do enjoy the pot being a thermos as well. Would have liked a metal one since we keep breaking the carafate.

Good coffee Terrible display

By

Verified Buyer

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

Love the coffee maker. Coffee is good and hot. However the display is impossible to read. It is so dim and if you lose power it is impossible to reset. Love how hot the coffee stays but am hesitant to recomnend it because of the display issue.

Wonderful coffee maker

I have this WEMO enables coffee maker, and has been outstanding. Coffee brews quick and the holding feature when you want to pour some coffee in the middle of the brew, prevents dripping

Okay

By

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

This is our second time buying this coffee maker. We bought a second one once the clock display was so bad you couldn't even delay the brew because you couldn't see the time. Works great otherwise. Now we are about 6 months into our second purchase of this coffee maker and the same thing is happening with the clock display. It is impossible to read. Will not be purchasing again due to this reason. We work early in the mornings and rely heavily on delaying the brew.

bomb coffee maker

By 

from San Diego, CA, United States

Verified Buyer

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

I make like six to eight cups of coffee twice a day and this machine can handle it so well I never have to drink cold or lukewarm coffee ever again. It's easy to clean and it shuts off the drip when I remove carafe so I never get those nasty brown stains on the bottom of the carafe or messy spills. also looks neat and clean on my counter and it let some me preset the coffee for the next day, the reservoir for the water is sealed to keep dust out overnight so you get clean coffee in the morning. Keeps the coffee HOT for like 3-4 hours.

Disappointing

By 

from Whitehall, PA, United States

Verified Buyer

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

We're on our second Optimal Brew Coffee Maker in 2 years.. the first stopped making hot coffee right around the 10th month and was completely useless by the 11th month. We liked the features, particularly the carafe and the timer. Now the second one leaks, so no more setting it up the night before and coming down to a pot of brewed coffee. This one we barely squeezed a year of service out of it. Seems like the days of buying an appliance and getting 10+ years of service from it are over. When each pot was new they would make a very good pot of hot coffee.. not so hot if making 1/2 pot. Doesn't really matter, we won't be buying a third. Mr Coffee use to be a brand we could count on.

Best Coffee Maker Yet!

By 

from St. Petersburg, FL, United States

Verified Buyer

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

I have been using this coffee maker for 3 months and I love the taste and how hot the coffee is. It is so much better than comparable coffee makers in the same price range. Way to go, it saves electricity as no burner is used also those burners get disgusting after awhile. Even without a burner it stays hot for a long time. Excellent product.

Chronic Design Flaw - Overflows filter basket

By 

from Lutz, FL, United States

Verified Buyer

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

Great coffee maker provided you never need more than 4 cups....beyond that useless,, filter basket overflows onto counter with grounds everywhere including ruined coffee in carafe. Same problem with metal or paper filters. Most of negative reviews on-line are this same complaint which Mr. Coffee always responds with no suggestions but to call their help line. I did that just in case I could avoid throwing this appliance into the dumpster and never buying another Mr. Coffee appliance again. Unfortunately the complaint line response was no acknowledgement of this clearly chronic problem and since its barely out of the warranty period, tough luck.

It's great while it lasts

By

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

I bought mine in May 2017 and it's Dec 2017. I don't know why but the coffee is coming out weak. Fresh ground beans, same coffee brand, same amount of coffee grounds in basket. I checked the temp and it's around 175°. I think the heating system is going bad. It sucks that a nice coffee maker like this looks like it lasts a year maybe little more then it starts dying.

Do Not Buy This Coffee Maker

By 

from Watervliet, NY, United States

Verified Buyer

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

I purchased my second Mr. Coffee 10 cup coffee maker 11 months ago to replace one I had for two years but could no longer use because the digital timer became so dim I could no longer read it to set time or program. Even though I saw reviews warning about this I couldn't believe Mr. Coffee wouldn't have fixed this problem. Boy was I wrong, it appears they just don't care! Second coffee maker has the same problem, even with all lights off you still cannot read the display.

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

This is the best coffee maker I've ever used. It keeps coffee warm without the burnt taste because it has a thermal carafe. Coffee tastes better because of the filtration features. Very happy and I've had it for roughly three years now.

We have had this coffee maker over 6 months now and I love it. The coffee stays hot... we have actually still had "warm" coffee 24 hours later. I love the separate water reservoir and the filter and the clean indicator. I haven't had any issues at all so far.

Fast Coffee

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.
