Melitta Look IV Therm Timer : Fantastic product, great price! A+++

Fantastic machine; arguably the best filter coffee machine on the market. Great design, easy to use and makes amazing coffee. The aroma selector allows you to adjust strength to taste, and is a feature i’ve only seen on selected melitta models. The unbreakable jug is a genius bit of design. Keeps the coffee hot for a couple of hours without the traditional hot plate design (which can actually burn and impair the flavour of the coffee). Saves electricity this way, and keeps warm a lot longer than other machines that power off the hot plate after 30 minutes. Removeable filter cone for easy cleaning too. No to mention a generous 24 month guarantee from the manufacturer.

I’ve bought many coffee machines over the years, but this for me is the best one. Love the fact it has a thermal pot rather than a glass one, so the coffee doesn’t taste ‘stewed’ from being kept hot. It says hot ( and i mean hot) upto 2 hours in the thermal pot.

I echo all the positive comments against this machine. It makes good coffee, easy to prepare and clear, great design for the spout and jug lid. Thanks to all the other reviewers for recommending this machine.

It’s a good brand love the flask instead of the glass jug. Coffee stays hot without power on.

The only problem with this device is that i’m drinking too much coffee. The timer means that i can have coffee waiting when i get up in the morning, and the metal thermos jug means that it stays hot for hours without that slightly scorched hot plate taste. And its unbreakable, which is a plus. There’s no way of seeing how much is left in the jug without taking the lid off.

So we love this coffee machine, makes great coffees, keeps it nice and want and not burnt. But when pouring for some reason the coffee drips everywhere, every time. Without fail wherever you pour you’ll have a nice puddle of coffee. Really disappointing as the rest of the machine is amazing.

It makes coffee as good as any other on the market but this little beauty has a timer function (like a teas maid) so you can set it to make the coffee 15minutes before you wake in the morning meaning you have a fresh pot of coffee waiting for you after your morning shower pour your coffee into a travel mug, jump in the car and you’ve saved valuable time meaning an extra 5 minutes in bed.

Have been through at least 10 of drip coffee makers – most all suffering from cheap construction, poor design, and ultimately short lives. This maker from melitta seems to answer most of these issues. The design is good in terms of adding water (one of the things drip makers can and do get horribly wrong) as long as you remember to lock the lid back on coffee pot before pouring water into the maker (it prevents spills by keeping water even pour). Which gets to the coffee pot – in a word, fantastic. It is stainless steel as opposed to glass or plastic. It also has an airtight seal preventing spills but most importantly acting as a thermos for your freshly brewed coffee. The thing that ruins coffee is that most makers depend on a heating plate that keeps warm, but often cooks your brewed coffee beyond the ideal leading to burnt coffee that in the end turns cold anyway. This coffee stays hot to warm for a good amount of time. I only write reviews six-months or so after using an item – and in this case we have had and used daily for about 16 months. Descaling is a must if you want to extend the life of the machine.

Bought this to replace an old coffee machine and i’m so pleased i did. Using the filter papers makes for a smoother coffee and the thermal insulated jug keeps coffee warmer for longer without using more electricity on a “keep warm” function like some other brands. Like the design and look, plus it’s easy to set up and program. Would recommend to friends and family.

I used to use 7 scoops of coffee in my old coffee filter machine which held less water, but i only need to use 5 to get the same strength and it holds more water. It’s very easy to use and the timer works fabulously so we have good, fresh coffee to wake up to. The thermos jug keeps the coffee hot for a lot longer than 2 hours.

Had it a week, it’s really very good. The thermal jug keeps the coffee warmer for longer than the old machine & the flavour is superb. The timer function is also excellent. Only one thing missing: some capacity indicators (in litres) on the water chamber.

I’ve used the melitta coffee maker several times each day since purchasing it and so far i’m very pleased with it. It’s easy to use and easy to clean. I chose a machine with an insulated jug rather than a hotplate as i find a hotplate can sometimes ‘cook’ the coffee and spoil it. I drink my coffee black and i’m pleased to say the insulated jug keeps the coffee hot for an impressive amount of time. I have no hesitation in recommending this machine.

My favourite coffee maker so far. After having a second leaky reservoir from a pod type machine for which i struggled to get black coffee pods for in the shops, i decided to go back to filter and don’t regret it one bit. It’s cheaper to run as the paper filters not too costly and can buy lovely great priced coffee from a certain german supermarket. I love having the timer function on our particular model too. I set it each night for 6am and coffee still at drinking temperature by 9am (and beyond) due to the brilliant thermal jug. It’s quiet, reliable and makes a gorgeous cup of coffee (well several) all at once.

Had this for 7 months – best coffee machine i’ve had, i was so annoyed when couldn’t buy one that stayed warm for 2 hours as previous ones did ( new regs) however this one better and stays hot much longer anyway, cheaper to run as no hot plate to power, when descale light comes on i run through some lemon juice 15mls ish in full water tank then put a couple of pots of water through before making next pot of coffee, i read it on dr google and seems to work perfectly, i find it much quicker than trying to clean through after using descaler sachets, timer works fab once you get used to setting it ( a bit fiddly) you have to buy filters but compatible ones size 4 are perfect and less mess than washing out mesh ( probably save more than filters cost by not having a warming plate using electricity ) so stop looking, order this one and enjoy.

Ordered this product last september (hughes direct) and received the machine the next day. The coffee machine looks smart and produces nice coffee. The jug is well insulated and does keep the coffee warm for a decent amount of time. No chance of burnt coffee as there is no heating element on the base of the machine, the insulated jug negates the requirement. Update – the swing arm on our machine sheared and we required a replacement unit. The plastic is actually quite thin at this junction so care should be taken when washing. Hughes direct were brilliant however, they replaced the whole machine with a new one and dpd provided the replacement the next day, taking the faulty one in return.

The selling point was the flask to keep the coffee warm, but unfortunately found it just tasted stewed so didnot use. Better value don’t pay the extra for the flask just buy the basic machine without the thermos.

  • So far, so good

Melitta Look IV Therm Timer, 1011-16, Filter Coffee Machine with Insulated Jug, Timer Feature, Aroma Selector, Black/Brushed Steel

Our new coffee machine arrived today and we had our first coffee using it. Have to say it’s really good and i’m a complete snob when it comes to taste. Easy to use, easy to pour, and great fresh tasting coffee, nice and strong. I normally like espresso so was curious to see if it would be strong enough – it was perfect.Good value for money too very pleased.

This is nice looking, easy to clean and produces tasty coffee – with none of those nasty grounds at the bottom of your cup. I have been using a cafetière for years but then read an article saying the best way to drink coffee is with an old school coffee maker. My parents had similar in the 80s but modern improvements include a base which isn’t heated and is therefore safer – as the jug is metal and insulated (and therefore also not hot to the touch). Love this and use nearly every day.

Every now and again, you come across a product that completely wows you. The thermos instead of a glass jug is a brilliant idea – and i now can’t imagine why not all coffee machines are made in this way. For a start, it saves on power – because there is no hot plate needed. Second, the coffee keeps warm for a staggering time. Yesterday, i set the timer for a full jug of coffee at 6am. I had a mug at 7am, before leaving for golf. I then had a second and third mug of (still piping hot) coffee from the jug after lunch at 2pm. I then had a warm mug of coffee after dinner at 7pm. Ok, it was no longer hot, but it was still drinkabley warm, with some steam – that’s 13 hours after brewingand that, my friends, is what compelled me to write this review.

Very solid build and looks good on the kitchen worktop. Easy to work and the thermos type jug keeps the coffee good and hot without the need for a hotplate. With the machine turning itself off as soon as the last of the water has gone through i assume it is more economical than my last filter coffee maker which left the hotplate on for about 30 minutes after the coffee had finished brewing. The opening at the top is quite small so you cannot get your hand in to clean it but i rinse it straight after use and it seems to clean quite easily.

Just used this machine for the first time and it’s very easy to use and clean. It brews coffee in about 3 minutes. The measurements however are a bit off as it states 125ml is a large cup. I would advise 2 large cups per person. Other than that i would easily recommend this product.

We drink a lot of coffee and get through a lot of machines. This is undoubtedly the best i have bought. It’s easy to use, the jug pours well and doesn’t drip. It makes great tasting coffee and because it is made by the company that makes the filter papers they fit perfectly and never fold over like i have experienced with other machines. The best part though is the insulated jug. I can’t recommend that highly enough. It easily keeps the coffee hot for over two hours. The machine is compact and looks great too.

It looks nice and makes a lovely smooth coffee. Just so nice having the coffee ready on a morning which one less thing to do. I’ve had other machines in the past but not as good as this one.

Had this for a good few months now. Very good coffee and very easy to use and to clean.

Works well for the price, coffee remains hot for approx. 21/2 hours but drinkable at 3, only downside for me is the fact you cant see at a glance how much coffee is left in the jug.

This is a great coffee machine. Setup is very easy and it’s easy to use. The thermo jug keeps the coffee hot for a few hours and warm enough to drink for about 4 hours. It’s easy to clean and the lid comes off of the pot easily. The water thank is not removable, so use the pot to fill up the water. The timer works as expected. Brewing is fairly quiet and fast. Resulting coffee tasted great and nice and hot.

I had this delivered today and wanted to do a review of my first impressions and usage. I can honestly say this is one of the best coffee machines i have ever bought. When i got it out the box it felt quality and premium despite the unit mostly being plastic. But it’s not a light platsuc it feels solid build. The thermos jug is a great idea instead of using a glass one and works really well keeping the coffee hot. The unit also come with a few filters in the box to get you started which was awesome because i forget to get the paper filters when i got the coffee so would have been stuck. But you get 4 filters in the box so that’s great. You can pick up about 80 filters on amazon for £4 so no big deal. The first coffee is made was so good.The machine is very quite and cleaning it after was easyi was recommended this machine by a friend at work.

I’m a self-confessed coffee snob. I bought this machine more to prove my wife wrong than anything else, as i was convinced that i could only get good filter coffee from hand-pour or expensive machines like the moccamasters or wilfas. This machine does not seem to have the pre-infusion, the scaa/scae approvals, and i have no idea whether it heats the water to the ideal temperatures. But, with a standard coffee to water ratio and my normal grind size for a pour-over coffee, it just works. It produces very good coffee and it does it more consistently than i ever managed with my pour-over technique. The insulated jug does a brilliant job of keeping the coffee hot for around two hours, and even drinkably warm after three hours. It takes standard size 4 filter papers that i can buy from my local supermarket instead of online or from a specialist coffee shop, or you can put a permanent mesh filter in it. The machine is plastic for the most part, so it doesn’t feel like a heavy duty or professional piece of kit. But it looks nice enough and performs well, so i have no complaints at all.
