Melitta Look IV Timer : Highly recommend

Nice & neat looking coffee maker. Had a timer & aroma intensity setting which are both nusegul features. Have always used krups in the past so this is a new brand for me. Bought from the amazon warehouse at a reduced price and can’t find anything wrong with it so seem to have got a bargain ??.

I had to experiment with amount of coffee and strength setting, but now that’s sorted i am really pleased with this product. Keeps coffee hot for over 2 hours and pours well. I am using melitta filters as our old permanent filter does not allow the head to close properly; this is actually much more convenient for disposal but obviously has a cost. I have de-scaled once using distilled vinegar 50/50: the de-calc indicator came on after 6 weeks. Only 4* because of the price.

Very easy cleaned and used, which is ideal for us. Best bit is spend a few minutes preparing the night before, click ‘timer’ and you have hot, fresh coffee waiting for you in the morning. The jug is completely water tight (can be held up side down, but i wouldn’t recommend it) so it’s also great to fill and take with you to the office / workshop / etc – keeping the coffee hot for a few hoursdefinitely one of the better gadgets in the kitchen.

Having an insulated pot is genius. So the hot coffee can follow you to your desk, work station etc works well, although you don’t get too much of a coffee smell while it’s brewing. For the timer function to work it needs a constant power supply, so if it gets unplugged or there’s a power cut the clock needs resetting, then the timer needs resetting, then turning the timer back on for it to auto on. Owned for about a month of almost daily use. Having previously been happy with an in cup mesh filter this flavour is different even with the same water volume to coffee ratio, maybe a little more bitter?. I’m still playing with those ratios and coffee type, and i might occasionally go back to my in cup filter for a stronger blast. This can be strong, just different. Getting the coffee stain out of the pot is something i need to look into.

Excellent product – insulated jug is very efficient and keeps coffee hot for hours without stewing it. Being stainless steel, rather than glass, it won’t explode, showering the kitchen with tiny fragments of glass, like the bosch one we had before. It is easy to see the level of water in the tank, very important when you have just got up in the morning.

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 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.

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.

We’re very pleased with this machine. The coffee it brews tastes good; and we like the idea of a vacuum jug. The only reason i’ve marked it down to four stars is that it isn’t always easy to get the last drops out of the jug: considerable tilting is required. By the way, we’ve found that the universal size 4 coffee filter we bought works well with it.

Makes gorgeous coffee effortlessly. Stylish and compact design (i have the brushed steel version). Keeps coffee piping hot for at least an hour. Unlike many other machines this one has a metal rather than glass carafe/pot – this means a) the coffee stays hotter for longer, b) no more smashing accidents on the kitchen tap or in the kitchen sink.

An excellent, affordable coffee machine. The intensity regulator works very well, you can really taste the difference between the different settings and the thermo jug keeps the coffee warm for up to 4 hours without any stewed taste coming in. I’d thoroughly recommend particularly as it uses standard filters available in all supermarkets. It’s also really easy to clean with lots of dishwasher safe elements.

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.

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.

A straightforward, no frills filter coffee machine that makes good coffee and keeps it warm for a set time (a believe about 40 min?). Nice that it shuts off automatically as i do tend to forget to turn it off. Nice that you can change the strength — i keep it somewhere in the middle as strongest was a bit too strong for me.

Fantastic machine, i love it. The ability to change strength is perfect and the auto water detection means you can make as much as you want. If you do the full jug it’s easily 4 large mugs. And stays warm ages the less coffee in the jug the quicker it cools.

Excellent machine , excellent coffee – definitely produced the best filter coffee compared to my old machine. The thermos jug is the significant difference in keeping the coffee drinkable for a couple of hours. Simple to use and cleanwould recommend to coffee lovers – enjoy.

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.

This definitely looks the part and suits in nicely with my espresso set up. Having only employed the machine once i can’t actually communicate for the very long-term usability, but so much so good. Impressive design, quite simple to use and most importantly, can make a terrific cup of coffee. I opted to put in a lasting filter instead than use the paper filters. Also to notice that i obtained a excellent 3 several hours out of the single jug – after that, it was starting to get a minimal cold.

Purchased this to cease the spouse and children discarding tassimo pods. Functions properly, easy to established up and the timer suggests i have coffee all set right before i get out of bed. The insulated pot keeps the coffee sizzling, so a lot far better and safer than those people with incredibly hot plates. I purchased the suggest spoon, 8g, which suggests a little bit of psychological arithmetic is desired (or a ready reckoner ? ).

I acquired this to substitute a earlier melitta look coffee machine. This 1 is much nicer and user-pleasant. The basket swings out for simplicity in filling the coffee (as opposed to lifting the lid exactly where the coffee grinds often bought in the drinking water reservoir). They retained the change that lets you to make much better or weaker coffee. The thermos pot pours coffee with no dripping and keeps the coffee sizzling. I will not use the timer for earning coffee the subsequent early morning b/c i preheat the pot with very hot water and this retain the coffee sizzling extended. Am extremely happy with the obtain and the improvements from my former 1.

  6. This is really good but make sure you read the instructions carefully. I couldn’t understand why my coffee was so weak. Strong coffee is to the left on the strength selector and i just assumed it was to the right. Makes good coffee, lovely and hot.

      1. If you take care not too bad to clean. Again with care it should last years.
