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.

LCD Display

By 

from Madison, WI, United States

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

On my third unit over the years. All three brew great coffee. All three have had the LCD die. You can only read them in pitch black situations. Have tired unplugging, hitting the dim button . . . not a problem if you never want to change the settings, know them and never lose power or unplug. Otherwise . . wait for dead of night to set it up.

Inconsistent Brew + Won't Shut Off

By 

from Seattle, WA, United States

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

Long term review. Day one, followed instructions for a water only cleaning brew. Noticed it never shut itself off after water carafe was empty. Figured it was normal process for cleaning. Subsequent coffee brewing since then - it never shuts itself off even after water is expended. Heater stays on as well as yellow brewing light. SO, we decided to live with it and turn it off manually. No big deal. Per instructions we clean frequently with descale solution. Over 1.5 years of use, I felt that to get a strong brew I had to use a bit more grinds that initially. Now, today this coffee maker no longer brews correctly at all. Coffee is nearly clear / brown with minimal flavor. After several calibrated test brews with grind and amount of coffee per instructions, I noted that the brew time is MUCH faster than when we first got this maker. I have surmised that for whatever reason, the water into the filter basket is flowing much faster / larger volume and is over-running the grinds and passing through the gold permanent filter basket above the coffee grinds, thus not all passing through it. I can't think of a way to fix this without manufacturer's service to take it apart and look at the heater / flow system. Not worth it. I can't recommend this maker and I'm dissatisfied with this low level of quality / longevity.

Why it leaks,I've had same problem twice

By 

from Gilbert, AZ, United States

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

On the bottom of your filter basket is a small spring and plastic button. This button regulates you pulling karafe out mid brew and pour a cup of coffee. When this button breaks off or damaged your coffee pot "leaks". Sadly,just experienced today AGAIN.

Good for a few months

By 

from Rushford MN

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

We bought this coffee pot about 6 months ago, for the first 3 months it was great, then it started taking longer for the coffee to brew and wouldn't use all the water. I tried cleaning it with vinegar and water numerous times but now it takes 2+ hours for the full pot of coffee to brew and half the time it isn't even hot. Time to buy a bunn!!!

Not long lasting

By 

from Philly, PA

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

The good: makes good coffee, alerts to run a cleaning cycle, insulated carafe works well (pre heat first like all) The Bad: Gasket for carafe lid is too large and needs to be readjusted constantly, my display went dim after a year I can barely read it if I shade it with my hand. Too bad it's out of warranty! I will not buy this maker again.

Nice Coffee Maker - But...

By 

from Franklin, TN, United States

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

I actually like the coffee maker. It looks good, the coffee stays hot for 1.5 hrs+, and it looks nice. It has all the features you want. The only hiccup I see is that it does leak. For some reason there is ~ 1 -2 tablespoons of made coffee under the carafe every time coffee is made. I would not buy another one because of this but will live with it for now.

Cleanable with no hot plate cooking the coffee

By 

from Florida

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

Have this for nearly 4 years. Excellent. One of the few you can get nearly clean with removable reservoir. Had karafe improperly installed once and it will leak off since the top is not open.

Stop the beeping!

By 

from Florida

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

My wife and I have had this unit for about 2 years. It makes great coffee, and we love the removable reservoir. But the beeping, that infernal beeping! It wakes the entire house! Give an option to turn it off. Our display is now failing, and we would like to step up to the 12 cup model, but not unless we can stop the beeping.

Worst coffee pot ever

By 

from Michigan, United States

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

At first we thought it was great, but it's one of the worst leaking machines I've ever owned!!! Daily we have to clean up water puddles. Both my mother in laws and ours leak badly. Also the lining in the pot itself comes off and floats in your coffee. Yuck! Good luck to you if you purchase this machine!

Not Reliable

By 

from Arizona, United States

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

Brews good coffee but broke after 37 months of use. The electronic clock display went blank/dark and then you could not push the brew button to use. It would just beep endlessly. I would expect at the minimum, at least 60 months of usage for my money. Thus, I am disappointed with this purchase.

Takes too long to brew!

By 

from Three Rivers, MI, United States

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

This is our third coffee maker of this model. All three have been very good at first but after about two months of use they all take around 20 minutes to brew. The coffee is not as hot either. Is there a problem with the heaters? I cleaned them as instructed and it doesn't improve. We really like the design with the carafe and the removable water reservoir. When we were using the second coffee maker it was taking 20 minutes to brew and one day it brewed in 8 minutes. It did this for several brews and then went back to 20 minutes. I feel there is a defect in the heaters.

Very Satisfied

By 

from Hammond, LA, United States

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

We are very satisfied with our new Coffeemaker. We had it for a month now and it has exceeded our expectations. The coffee stays hot for a long time and we've had no problems with the machine itself. Glad we went this route for our new coffeemaker.

Not so awesome

By 

from Michigan

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

I've had this coffee maker a couple months, and started noticing that it never completely empties out the water from the lines! I ran a clean cycle yesterday, with vinegar following exact directions, and made 6 cups afterwards (turned out delicious). However! I turned the whole unit upside down today, and this is how much water drained out and all that nasty black stuff was floating in the water line inside. It's only been used once since the clean cycle! Now I'm scared to use the maker not knowing what's going to end up in my coffee
