Rated 1 out of 5Â by Hushhush Disappointing!
I was very happy with the looks of the Bella coffee maker that I purchased in red. I was aware that there was no automatic shutoff and could deal with that. I was also very pleased with the taste of the coffee and the overall operation of the coffee maker. However, after just a few months of use once a day, I noticed water dripping down the outside of the coffee maker (not the pot). Not a lot, but several drops each time. Then it began taking longer and longer to brew just six cups of water. Only four cups would actually end up as brewed coffee in the pot when finally through, yet no water was left in the reservoir. Would not recommend at all!
Rated 1 out of 5Â by Maryms Looks great - but don't be fooled
This coffeemaker was just plain old bad. There was a sediment that would not end at the bottom of the pot no matter how many times I ran water through. The most important though--- a feature I would expect with a half way decent brand - is auto shut-off. I came down the next morning at it was scorching hot!! Yes, my fault had I actually read the instructions (really who does this?) like I said for this money one would assume this feature is part of the package. This is HUGE - I hope others are better at reading instructions than me. It looks awesome, no doubt --- but - again - don't be fooled.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by MomlnTX Great color options
It works great and looks great. I did however not buy this on sale (unfortunate for me) so paying full price I would have expected more features, bells and whistles such as:
Clock/Programmable coffee option
Better pour ability into the water well
The only button you get is either an on/off and the description does not include that there is in fact an automatic shut off after 2 hours, at least according to the manual. The whole coffee maker is very lightweight so that's a plus.
All in all I'd rather have this fun colorful appliance vs some boring black basic mundane coffee pot.
Rated 3 out of 5Â by llabbelle Good for the price
Makes good coffee. I like the Black and steel look. The price was good. There are 2 things I do miss from my old pot: This pot does not have an automatic shut off, so if you forget it on, it stays on. Second, it is a bit difficult without making a mess to pour the water in the back of the pot if you're using the coffee pot to do so. If you miss the area to pour, the water will come through and make a mess. It takes some getting use to, but good for the price. lastly, it is a bit bulky and you can't open the lid if you have it under a cabinet.
