Melitta Look IV Timer : the coffee I want

Good price, good quality and good taste.

Although the machine is rather ugly and plasticky – very basic – and therefore not really value fro money, although coffee delivers .

Easy to use and set up, looks okay, a pain if you spill a bit of coffee everything needs cleaned. Hot coffee, that’s a first, usually the coffee is cool, but, this one is hot. Just put your contents in and let it work, great once you get the mix right. Delivered ontime and well packed.

Excellent coffee maker – easy to get ready, tasty coffee (which keeps warm for couple of hours).

I’ve had this coffee maker for 18 months and it does its job perfectly. My coffee machine runs a minimum of once a day and on regular occasions is used twice or three times per day. I’m very particular on having a machine that is quiet, easy to keep clean and which main components can easily be stuck in a dishwasher. At the same time i’m also not prepared to pay over the odds for some german-engineered designer machine as i find no value in kitchen top bragging rights. I bought the white machine as i think it looks nice and modern and suits a modern kitchen. It’s sturdy and well designed with all areas of the machine easy to access for cleaning and very few ridges/nooks and crannies that are difficult to get dirt off. The white machine is prone to coffee stains so you need to be vigilant and wipe any spills before it dries. The lid of the coffee pot is most prone to this and with my heavy use i couldn’t avoid it staining eventually. Not that it bothered me that much in the end as the lid of the pot you only see while pouring a cup. The descaling works well but just like all modern dishwashers, etc it only works as well as the person has set it up, ie read the instructions and set the correct water hardness level.

Good as one should expect from melitta.

This is a terrific machine and don’t listen to any other reviews who say it isn’t. The coffee is piping hot even adding milk which i do and when it goes off simply switch it back on. I also purchased a scanpart permanent coffee filter size 4 and it works really well with it which means you don’t need to use filters which i find annoying. What i love as well is the timer which means your coffee is ready for you getting up what more can you ask for. Beats buying pods for expensive coffee machines 😀👍👍👍.

Really pleased with this for once hot coffee great.

  • Well made, great coffee!
  • Not quite hot enough.

The best coffee machine i’ve ever owned. Really stylish, holds 10 big cups of coffee or 16 little ones. Has a timer on function so you can set it the night before. Coffee is hot enough when it dispenses and keeps it hot for 40 mins i think, before automatically switching off the hot plate. It can be turned back on though if you haven’t finished it all by then.

I was very pleased with my coffee maker and it looks very stylish, very impressed with the quality of the jug.

Very easy to clean, takes no time. Cannot imagine mornings without it.

Verdict: this may be the best coffee machine for under £100. Consistently good tasting coffee which is easy to make in the morning. Things i look for in a coffee machine in the order of preference:1. Consistency – taste and viscosity of the coffee2. Ease of use (load and clean)3. Built qualitypros: once you get the intensity level and the amount of coffee powder right, the machine makes the exact same coffee every single day. This is absolutely critical for me and here the product excels.

Fantastic machine, great coffee & easy to use.

Well, i have the melitta solo in my office which make around 150-200 espresso cups a day in the last 3 years. So i decided to purchaee this machine to my house. It’s well amde as you expect from melitta, got timer, auto off and the option to descaling the device and choose the strength of the coffee. Couldn’t ask for more in this price. The coffee is great and well balanced. One thing you should know about it – fill the amount of water you expect to drink, not more. The coffee will be less strong if so. Great machine – just buy it.

Will take a couple of goes to get the settings right, but the timer is simple to set up and use and it’s amazing to have coffee ready every morning. Stays very hot too, have to not drink the second cup too quickly else you’ll burn your mouth.

We had the version of this that had no timer and we used it to death. To get the upgraded version with a timer was a dream. Friends always compliment the coffee it makes, and when this one wears out i’ll get another.

Melitta Look IV Timer, 1011-08, Filter Coffee Machine with Glass Jug, Timer and Programmable Warmer, Aroma Selector, Black/Brushed Steel

Makes good coffee, love the timer as we get up and the coffee is already made in the morning. The calc light comes on automatically to tell you to decalc the machine. We have had it for couple of months and it has asked to decalc twice already but lemon juice works fine. The light for timer is exceptionally bright and lights up the kitchen at night. As there are lots of questions on this, the jug is glass, there is no plastic filter so use paper ones and it does not drip once done. It also has a stay warm function which is adjustable. We had the wrong manual is our box or a hybrid that didn’t cover all the functions but figured it out.

Very pleased with the filter coffee machine.

This is the best coffee filter machine i have ever used, and i have used a lotit looks good, makes great coffee, has a timer and is speedy in operation.

Keeps it nice and hot in the jug.

Wake up to the smell of fresh coffee every day now. Easy to operate and hot-plate keeps coffee hot long enough for a couple of top-ups.

Very simple to use and efficient machine. Everything works fine but the end product is strangely not quite hot enough. Whether this is my machine or not then can’t be sure but it is little bit disappointing. After reading other reviews here everyone seems to have ‘piping hot coffee’ which is strange as our machine makes more of a luke warm coffee.

Thought about spending a fortune on a fancy one this gives a good coffee. Straight forward and simple. Simple to setup and use working in no time great stuff.

I am very happy with this filter machine, excellent for the price. Although the construction appears flimsy the device has survived well and the design is very suitable for keeping it clean. I have given this four stars because , after all, it is only a simple basic coffee machine.

In that i mean it does make good coffee and fairly quickly. However, due to the jug lid not being spring loaded you have to hold it closed with your thumb when getting the last cupful out so that the floating lid does not drip outside the cup area. However, doing this can be quite uncomfortable as the rising steam from the jug burns your thumb. Also, living in a hard water area, i accepted that i would have to descale it now and then. We only had it for a week and the red de-scaling light came on. Using melitta tablets fixed it okay but a week or so later, the red light came on again. I can see us using the descaling tablets a couple of times a month.

Bought as a present and best filter machine i’ve had (and i’ve had a few ).

I was given a nespresso machine for my birthday, but realised that what i missed was the convenience of having a coffee pot to last throughout the morning while i work at home. I did a lot of research, and settled on this machine based on the reviews and various different recommendations. I am very glad i chose this one – not only does it make good coffee, but the entire machine just functions well. The timer function is easy to use, as is the keep warm setting which you can adjust between 20 minutes and 2 hours, and it is very easy to take apart and clean. I highly rate this if you’re looking for a coffee maker, this is definitely one of the best on the market.

Bought as a xmas gift and so far they love it. They impressed with that it has a setting with regards to water hardness for your area, setting for intensity of your coffee and the timer function. It only keeps coffee warm for upto 1hr, which is ideal. They’ve rated it 4 at present , it would be a 5 but coffee isnt that hot if you are taking it white.

Both the descaler and coffee maker were excellent.

The model ordered and supplied was one with a timer but the instructions in the box were for one without a timer. The instructions for setting the water hardness and the hot plate are completely different for these two models. It is possibly to download the correct instructions from the internet but l have concerns about the quality of an item supplied by a company that can’t even put the correct instruction booklet in the box.

Item arrived faulty the lcd display was faulty due to manufacturering so item was returned. Looked nice quality apart from that.

Timer setting is really good and keeps the coffee warm for quite a while after making. Doesn’t take up too much space on the counter top and isn’t loud when making the coffee. No down sides to it that we have found – would recommend.

Really pleased with purchase. A mid range coffee maker, well worth paying a little extra. I set timer every night for a two cup get me up and out for work. Easy to operate and i like the stay warm for up to any hour. Easy to clean and meets my needs.

Absolutely love this melitta coffee maker, i like the thermos flask that keeps the product hot for sometime and that the coffee stays fresh and clean without the ‘heated’ taste that sometimes happens when on the warming plate. Would definitely recommend this as i’ve enjoyed this coffee maker for the past month or so.
