Melitta 1010-02 Easy Coffee Filter Machine – : Avoid if you mind having a European plug

The (very short) mains lead is terminated with a moulded eu plug. Haven’t used it yet so no comments re performance.

Having had several much more expensive coffee makers over the years, i will say that i am delighted with the melitta 1010-02. It is simplicity itself and makes excellent coffee. Other machines have more bells and whistles (clocks, timers, incorporated grinders etc. ) that really aren’t required. I was worried by some reviewer comments that suggested that this one doesn’t make the coffee strong enough. The coffee produced is far superior in both strength and flavour compared to the last two machines i have owned. Am now adding less coffee and getting more of a kick. To answer a few posted questions, i) yes, it does have a hotplate shutoff after 35 minutes or so. This is an eu regulation and all coffee makers shut off these days.

I’ve bought a filter coffee machine from amazon every two years for the past six years. Something tells me they don’t have a long life and i’ve tried three manufacturers. This one seems very ‘lightly’ built but i like it for three main reasons:-plenty of room to tip the water in at the top-the hot plate is nice and hot-the release and lock mechanism above the jug is extremely efficient. So this is a melitta ‘basics’ model and it’s excellent.

Unlike other people here, mine arrived today with a uk plug. Simple, small, fast, great coffee. If you want one with bells and whistles (timer, automatic shut off, overdesigned, whatever) this isn’t for you.

East to use – especially if you are left-handed. Filter / coffee container swings to left, switch is on left.

It was just what i expected except for the fact that the plug was not uk standard. Luckily i have a few converter ones but it will be an issue for anyone who hasn’t got that.

Great little coffee maker, however had to buy a re-usable filter as it had none. Don’t like paper ones as they alter the taste of coffee, make it taste papery.

  • Great coffee machine

  • Nice coffee maker but the plug was not UK standard?

Lovely filter coffee machine, came with uk plug, not eu one. I have an automatic coffee machine that requires coffee beans, the oil of the coffee, besides the taste could cause stomach ache, in may case acid reflux problems. Once i switched to coffee filter the stomach problem are almost gone. Less taste but feeling much better. I like the water container, is large enough pouring the water in it easily.

Absolutely dissapointed that the plug is a european one. Purchased it for a christmas present will be returning now, given it three stars because the machine looked nice.

Unlike others, mine came with the uk plug. It works fine and there isn’t a plastic taste or smell.

Great coffee machine, simple to use and gives a warm cup of coffee. The only downside is that it was supplied with a european plug so had to buy an adaptor.
