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.

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.

Thermal Carafe does not keep coffee hot

By 

from Helenwood, TN, United States

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

The coffee works fine, it makes good tasting coffee. The problem is only the first cup will be hot, after about 20 minutes it is just warm. Have to stick my coffee in the microwave to heat it to drink. Already tried the suggestion to warm the thermal pot with hot water prior to making coffee, didn't help at all. Maybe it is defective? Have never put it in the dishwasher, as a matter of fact it has been like this since day one.

Poor way to start morning

By 

from Union City, CA, United States

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

I had to replace my thermal coffee pot so decided to try Mr Coffee. What a let down. Filter basket takes two hands to empty (lid falls down). The "Fresh Brew" light is waste of energy (seriously). Turn off machine, but still beeps 2 hrs later(?). Push button on carafe is hard for people with weak wrist. Coffee comes out of hole on top of carafe, and spills down on counter. Worst of all is time line of HOT COFFEE. Maybe 30 mins!!! and no way it's 205 degrees!! (more like 170)The whole purpose of thermos is to take up to bedroom. My old coffee pot kept it hot for 4-5 hours. Like I said what a let down.

Great Coffee Maker but Cheaply Made

By 

from Glen Oaks, NY

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

I bought this coffee maker 2 years ago. I had to exchange the first one because the basket came broken. At first it was a great coffee maker - it brews very fast, makes very hot coffee that tastes delicious, and the thermal carafe keeps the coffee hot for hours and without burning it. However, the vacuum in the first carafe became compromised after about a year. I thought it was something I did while cleaning so I just replaced the carafe (directly from Mr. Coffee). I treated the second with extreme care and only cleaned with vinegar (no brush). Now that one has a compromised vacuum too which means it won't keep the coffee hot. Over time, the digital display has faded to the point where I cannot read it anymore. You cannot read the time, set the timer, etc. So while the design is pretty good and it starts out being a winning coffee maker, it appears you'll have to start replacing items after not too long.

Favorite coffee maker to date!

By 

from Wisoconsin

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

We bought this coffee maker 3 months ago and love it. My only problem with the maker is that when we emptied out the grounds a few weeks ago the charcoal filter that is in the top of the grounds tray must have fallen out and went unnoticed into the trash. I have been trying to find the correct replacement filter for it but am not having any luck. I have bought two Mr Coffee replacement filters and neither fit properly and won't stay in the lid of the coffee gounds tray. Like I said, we love this maker and will continue using it and looking for filters that work.

Not impressed

By 

from Sidney, MT, United States

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

Unfortunately for me my husband bought this for me and threw away the receipt, box and instructions before I saw it so I'm stuck with it. Coffee luke warm within 1/2 hr, unless I boil water first, water tank is not easy to hold, and carafe is not easy to clean(need bottle brush). Wishing my old standard Mr. Coffee hadn't died.

DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY

By 

from Undisclosed

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

IT LEAKS....The first machine leaked. The replacement LEAKED. NO it's not user error. It's a poor quality coffee maker. Each unit leaked from a different part of the machine. Coffee either brewed weak or leaked. Very disappointed. Customer service good about replacing the coffee-maker with another one - however it's a faulty machine so you get more of the same. The reviews on this website are AWFUL. Few better than 3 stars. DON' T WASTE YOUR MONEY!

Missing 1 important feature

By 

from Fort Wayne, IN, United States

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

We bought this coffee pot only because it was the only one I could find with a removable Water Resivor. I really wanted a 12 cup but had to settle. The only major problem with this coffee pot is that you can not turn it back on after the 2 hour brew time. We like to have coffee all day and we're use to just turning it back on to keep it nice and hot. Other than it missing this 1 key function, in my opinion, it is a good coffee maker.
