Melitta Look IV Therm : Excellent coffee machine, that solved a problem that I didn’t know existed!

If it was possible to be in love with a coffee machine, then i am in love with this one. Easy to use and clean, durable thermos jug (just don’t drop it) instead of a thin glass jug that breaks at the slightest touch, the thermos jug is why i bought this machine as it keeps the coffee hot for 3 hours (no more reheating). The germans know their coffee machines and i had one similar to this when i lived there 13 years ago, only this one is so much better. No rubbish hotplate, just a simple thermos flask. Oh did i mention the thermos flask?. Also features two strength options so if you’re feeling really sleepy you can increase the strength of your coffee. Thank you melitta, your coffee machine is fantastic.

Makes good coffee, but not very hot. From fresh to hours later, it needs longer and longer in the microwave to bring up to drinking temperature. Having said that, a quick zip in the microwave probably costs less than running a hotplate for hours. Nor does it get as stewed as with a hotplate model, all things considered, i like it – time for another cup i think.

Best filter coffee machine i’ve used. Received as a gift from my husband to use at work. I am currently enjoying a piping hot cup of fresh coffee which i brewed nearly 3 hours ago. If you fill the thermal jug with boiling water and leave to sit for a few minutes before brewing, the coffee stays hot for well beyond the 2 hours stated.

Great tasting coffee, easy to fill, and quick. The flask jug keeps coffee hot for ages and looks good on the table. Much better than the ones using pods or bags; the filters are biodegradable and i can chose which strength of ground coffee i want.

Nice piece of kit, well designed, easy to clean, i like the clear top water tank, my previous coffee machine ended up with ‘bits’ ( i’m not sure of what ) in the water tank though it was ten years old. Quality and taste of coffee produced is good, an around good piece of kit.

I purchased this coffee maker as i got sick of wasting coffee in standard machines when they go cold. I am for the most part happy with the item. It makes lovely coffee and is simple and easy to use. The one annoyance is that the jug spills coffee all over the unit when i pour it out. I have no way of contacting the seller on my order history either. Great product with a small downfall.

Have found no faults with the machine easy to use easy to clean and makes a good cup of coffee.

Not so many filter coffee machines around these days so pleased to find this one. Keeps the coffee hot better than some machines and has a good capacity.

Great product easy to use and maintain.

The trick with this super easy machine is to warm the themos flask (the jug) – i didn’t buy the version with a timer because i really really wanted a hot cup of coffee and all ‘thermos flasks’ need a warm before use so this is no different. I put a bit of boiling water in the jug, give it a swirl for a minute,. Then switch on – 10 – 15 mins later a whole pot of lovely hot coffee every time. Can’t comment on durability because we’ve only had it a month (used every day, sometime twice) but really there’s not much that can go wrong.

The coffee is just as you want it, great flavour and hot. You won’t to better, and i have other really expensive machines. Not as fiddly or messy as presses.

We bought this coffee pot not realising it’s a thermal pot lol. Now we don’t have to worry if we forget to switch coffee pot off and coffee remains lovely and hot but doesn’t start to stew like regular coffee pots do with normal hot plate. You do have to treat it carefully but the pros out way any cons. Love that i can touch the pot or set it anywhere without worry of burning.

Looks great and makes a nice cup of coffee quickly and easily.

This machine makes an excellent brew in double quick time. The insulated jug keeps the coffee at a great drinking temperature for an hour or more. The controls are super simple and the water level indicators etc are all crystal clear. I just wish i could find a gold permanent filter for it – maybe next time i am in the usa. Update – well, one year on and one month out of warranty, this coffee maker has died. This am it fused my kitchen and then stopped working completely. Not really value for money when it only lasts a year. I am disappointed with melitta quality in this case.

I had the previous version of this machine and the new one is much improved. It has been completely redesigned and simplified. It is now easier to fill the resevoir and to see how much water is in it. The steam no longer goes through the lid so there is less chance of scaling/clogging up. It is much quicker to make coffee than before. On the downside, the hingeing filter holder looks a bit flimsy and the new lid to the jug has a fiddly press-to-release fitment rather than the old screw fitting. The basic idea of the machine remains excellent. It has a vacuum flask coffee jug rather than the glass jug on a hot tray used by the competition. This means that the coffee stays hot after it has been made, but it does not continue to stew and change flavour. It will keep hot for at least an hour.

Melitta Look IV Therm, 1011-10, Filter Coffee Machine with Insulated Jug, Aroma Selector, Black

Not sure what the pouring nozzle issues were, but mine doesn’t miss a drop. Damn fine coffee maker indeed.

Review for the look iv not the therm version. Smart, well made and easy to use. Only negatives are that i wish the hot plate stayed on longer, it’s under the 45 mins billed, and i think is should be cheaper.

Makes great coffee in a short amount of time.

I’ve never really liked the coffee that these machines produced, but had never realised that the reason for that was the keep warm function quickly ruining the coffee. The alternative solution here of thermos-type jugs is excellent, and works really wellthis is a seriously capable, well priced and smart coffee machine. Literally nothing on it that i would want different. Ps- this is particularly perfect if you’re got people (home or work) who always need help on how to use stuff.I can’t promise that they definitely won’t ask for any help, but with it’s single switch operation, it is definitely as simple a coffee maker as you could ever buy.

Makes great coffee and keeps hot for a time, but as i like really hot coffee perhaps not the best purchase for me. Looks good on the work surface though.

No complaints about this product; it’s great. You can set the intensity of the flavour, and because the jug is insulated the coffee stays hot for a while. The auto-off function also means that there’s no worry about forgetting to switch the machine off.

Makes great coffee fast, and keeps it hot, without stewing it on a hotplate.

I wanted to replace our tassimo with something more genuine and without the wastage of capsules. After researching the options on amazon i decided on the melitta range. After a couple of goes i got the coffee strength and cup size right (the cup sizes on the machine are on the tiny side) and now use daily. I think i would have preferred the brushed steel jug as we live in a hard water area and it shows up on the black jug, but that is just cosmetic. The coffee is kept warm for several hours so when working at home i can make one jug and it keeps half the day.

Many years ago we had this type of coffee machine. I was very pleased to find a modern version. Our old hotplate filter machine had burned out like they all do eventually so i ordered this as a replacement. It keeps the coffee hot and does not give it that bitter burnt taste you get from hotplate machines. I am very satisfied with my purchase.

Best filter machine we’ve ever had. It was bought to replace a creaking morphy richards and doesn’t disappoint. I really like the insulated pot which keeps the coffee hot for ages without stewing the brew. The flavour control works well too.

Fullfils all expectations, happy with purchase.

I don’t regret getting the thermos carafe – the coffee definitely stays warm for a good 6-8hrs after brewing.

This is a good version of a basic coffee filter machine. I previously had one of their premium machines with a glass pot and hotplate, but decided to replace after breaking a 3rd jug. I’m not sure the aroma control is anything more than a gimmick though. Downsides are that the tank is a bit fiddly to fill and don’t go above the max fill line, as there is a hole at the back of the tank that acts as an overflow so the water goes all over the counter (i assume this is to prevent you from overfilling the jug) less forgiving than their premium machines costing double, but makes a decent, hot cup of coffee that stays hot for several hours (although don’t expect it to taste as good after an hour or more).

All you can expect from a filter coffee machine. Thermal jug is greatth only issue so far is that 1×4 filters seem a little bit too large, but that’s just a slight annoyance rather than something preventing frommcomfortable usage.

This coffee machine is exactly what i wanted: simplicity and good black & aromatic coffee. It’s energy efficient and easy to maintain.

Works well, coffee good at maximum intensity. Auto shut off good as is vacuum flask for keeping coffee warm.

Excellent machine-keeps the coffee warm rather than it stewing on a hotplate.

Very pleased with our coffee pot which keeps our coffee hot for a couple of hours.
