This morning, we noticed that this coffee maker – which topped our search for the best-rated coffee makers on Amazon – is now just £50 (almost 40 percent off).
Not only did the Melitta have the highest number of five-star reviews (85 percent) on our list, it also had the highest average rating (4.7 out of 5). The machine features a stainless-steel insulated jug, and holds enough liquid for 10 large or 15 smaller cups of coffee. The timer feature was highlighted in 73 reviews, including by one customer who likes to set it to brew before they hop in the shower.
Another reviewer said this timer function was so good, it was the sole reason they chose this model. Sixty reviews also commended the insulated jug, which keeps the coffee warm for up to three hours but crucially, according to one reviewer, avoids the “stewed coffee” taste that can occur in machines that use a hot plate to keep the liquid warm. One self-professed coffee snob, who bought this model after an argument with his wife, conceded that the resulting brew was just as good as his pour-over and AeroPpress coffees. The machine is easy to clean, according to 109 reviewers, including one woman who used to frequently break the glass jugs in other models.
