How the Betty Crocker Coffee Maker Performed
This coffee maker looks great - that got my attention in the first place. Secondly, my daughter insisted it makes great coffee, so I wanted to try it out for myself. It has a black finish with shiny red front panels and a standard-size footprint. The programmable feature works very well, but the 24-hour timer has a less than desirable set up. There's no hold-and-set mechanism, so every time you accidentally nudge (which can happen lots), the hour or minute button, it changes the time and this can be annoying.
As for coffee - it makes an excellent brew. The drip is a shower-style type of brewing which is known to improve the concentration of water to grounds, to improve flavor. This coffee maker takes less coffee than what I usually use for a full pot - bonus. The carafe is nicely designed and pours without dripping. There's a water level indicator which is handy, but the channel to fill the water reservoir is very narrow - too much so and you have to fill it very slowly. This coffee maker takes a standard size cone filter and you can take the basket out to clean it.
