Melitta Easy Top : We love it. Makes excellent coffee in the morning

Perfectly good coffee maker. Thumb-operated lid for easy filling. Two downsides – it’s impossible to see the graduations on the side of the tank, so be prepared with a felt pen, and it has a timer built in to switch it off after about 40 minutes, as in keeping with legislation invented by some tea-drinker in brussels. Your second coffee will be cold unless you switch off then on again every time you walk by.

Makes excellent coffee in the morning. Also like the 45 minute turn off switch. I no longer have to worry about whether or not i turned off the coffee pot.

It produced acceptable coffee but there were drawbacks. It was delivered when we were out by dropping it over a 2 metre high gate onto a concrete surface, the fact that it survived is testament to the packaging. But on contact with melitta they would not guarantee that it would last very long as there could be damage that was internal. Also the shape of the jug makes it a juggling act to pour, so it was returned for a refund.

Definitely the best filter machine.

Nice simple easy to use machine. I agree with others though that marking on water tank are illegible (fixed with marker pen). Also the fitting of the filter funnel to the machine is a bit fiddly to get off and on again when wanting to wash it, but i’m getting the hang of it.

Product ok for price, the real downside is the 40 minute cut off for the machine which means unless you consume all the coffee at one go then you waste a lot off coffee or brew in smallest quantities. This was bought to replace a 40 year old machine so i have confidence in the brand therefor only 3 stars.

The machine is easy to use and good build quality as one expects from melitta. However, amazon shipped an item with a german 2-pin plug, not a uk 3-pin plug [illegal so i had to find an adapter. ]

It is a rare beast in that you can indeed fill it quite easily. It would be good if the indicator on the side were visible – it is too faint. Nor does the jug have any cup indicator, so it means a bit of guesswork. It cuts off after 40 odd minutes, a bit surprising but saves electricity at least.
