"The auto shutoff is a wonderful and useful feature—no burned coffee forgotten in the carafe. Couldn't be happier with this product!" — Vieux Bob
"I love good coffee. And this thing definitely makes it! No bitter taste, very fast, reliable and easy to use. [It keeps] water boiling in the tank at all times so when you add water to it to make coffee, the hot water comes out immediately and the new water you added replaces the hot water and begins heating for later. Genius move by BUNN!" — Jacob Gindi
"I finally gave in and bought the last device I ever wanted in my home, the device that seemed to stand for laziness and mediocrity. A Mr. Coffee generic drip coffee machine… The result? THE BEST CUP OF DRIP I'VE HAD SINCE MY RETURN TO COFFEE!" — Jonah Spool
"Great, easy to use and clean solution for 'coffee on demand.' Basically, brews coffee into a heated 'tank' and then you dispense coffee by pressing a lever down. It has a nifty gauge that shows you how much coffee is left." — MarcKatyTexas
"In a world where everything seems to be a complex computer controlled wonder, Bluetooth this, Facebook that, timer whatsits, and e-/i-whatevers, this machine stands out. Why? Because its a $17 coffee maker, it does nothing special other than make coffee. Guess what, it makes coffee." — Joebob Furious
"This coffee maker is my current obsession! I've been in the market for coffee makers for ages, and I am so happy with this one. I'm the only coffee drinker in my house, and I've been so disappointed with all the single-cup coffee makers on the market. I do like French press coffee, but I don't have time for the maintenance. This coffee maker has proven to be the perfect match for me!" — TimmysMom
"I bought this coffee maker because I'm not a morning person. I absolutely love drinking coffee, but I hate waking up knowing I have to go prepare it and then wait… I looked into Mr. Coffee because it's definitely a cheap alternative for what I'm looking for (a coffee maker that brews a delicious cup of coffee automatically). It's just an awesome coffee maker that wakes me up to the sensational coffee smell every morning." — Tiffany
