Melitta Look IV Selection : Five Stars

I am very pleased with this machine.

Great tasting coffee and easy to use.

This coffee maker is all it claims to be and just what we were looking for. It uses paper filters which are cheap enough and makes it a lot easier to clean than the mesh basket that other machines use. Although it doesn’t have a timer we find it doesn’t really need one. The machine doesn’t take very long to make the coffee so if you want to have a coffee first thing in the morning, and are only making 1 or two cups, it will take about the same time as boiling a kettle. It comes set to keep the hotplate on for approx 40 minutes but that can be changed. You are able to choose from 20, 40 or 60 minutes. It also has a calc(ification) button to set it to match the hardness of the water in your area. It will light up when you need to de-calc your machine. This will vary depending on the water hardness in your area and how often you use the machine but i reckon on between 1 and 3 months. The instructions for all the settings are clear and concise.

Made a great cup of coffee almost straight out of the box. Plus: simple to use but still has options for coffee strength, keep warm time-out and water hardness (so that the de-calcification reminder doesn’t nag you prematurely). Compact design means that it doesn’t take up much worktop space. Coffee pot doesn’t gush coffee everywhere like some others tend to do (ok, most of the ones i’ve had anyway). Adjustable cable outlet and storage facility. Minus: short power cable (common to new models, i know, but it is a real pain, nevertheless). Non-removable fresh water tank. Cant use a permanent gold filter due to shape of filter holder.

After many months of deliberation and reading reviews i finally decided on this coffee machine to replace our old thermal coffee machine, which was leaking. As with any purchase it’s always a risk, but i am really pleased with it. The coffee stays much hotter than my previous machine. The only ‘niggle’ at the time was the automatic cut off after 40 minutes, but my husband changed the timing to switch off after 60 mins and it’s no bother to switch on again for a short while after that if there is still some coffee left. So all in all an excellent choice and a very good cup of coffee.

Nice quality product at a fair price, delivered promptly and in good condition on opening. Makes great coffee at good temperature. I am infuriated by the european ruling which means all newly manufactured filter coffee makes must automatically switch off after 40 mins. I make my coffee at 6:45 and have my last cup at 8:15; that is 90 mins. How can the eu decide when i must drink my coffee?. Anyway, this coffee maker at least allows you to override by an additional 20 minutes, giving you an hour in total, which is better, though it does not give you an alarm when it switches off. If it did i would give it 5 stars.

Very happy with my purchase.

Tucks away into a corner nicely. Bit awkward to clean, like many other machines.

Aroma selectorWith Melitta’s patented flavour selector, you can adjust the intensity of your coffee at the touch of a button: for a mild or strong coffee. You can, for example, enjoy a pick-me-up coffee at breakfast, and a gentle feel-good coffee after lunch. The Aroma Selector function ensures you constantly get the best taste, in a practical way without having to change the amount of water or coffee.

User friendly warm keeping feature (20, 40 or 60 minutes)

Set the warm keeping time according to your individual needs for 20, 40 or 60 minutes. After the time set, the coffee machine will automatically switch off. This saves energy and prevents loss of flavour.

Buy on Amazon

Arrived within 3 days of ordering. Makes a great cup of coffee and is very easy to use. Ordered this as my mum has one as well; she’s had hers for 8 years and it still works a treat. Fingers crossed this lasts as long.

Have always had melitta coffee makers and know i won’t get disappointed with the performanse or the sleek look.

Makes geat coffe and like the features such as adjustable strength, descaling and auto-off function. It is also easy to dissmantle for cleaning, and look great in white.

Very efficient – just need to see how it copes with our hard water, otherwise, it’s great not having to wait for ages for a cup of coffee.

Much better than a morphy richards machine which only kept the coffee warm for 20 minutes. At least i can now have 2 or 3 coffees in an hour without worrying about machine turning off and having to reheat the coffee in the microwave. Also, using filter papers is much easier as the permanent filters stain very easily and are not easy to get fully clean. And the used paper and coffee grounds can go in the food recycling bin after.

Brilliant buy for the price. Makes a very good pot of coffee and the hot plate feature keeps it warm for a good few hrs. Simple and easy to use and clean.

Super no frills no drip coffee pot.
