Great coffee maker!
I have had this coffee maker for about a year. It is great when we have a large group over for brunch. My favorite feature is the timer. I would highly recommend this coffee maker.

I actually own the FTX23 version, but the reviews here seem fairly consistent with my experience. Therefore, if my model is a predecessor to the FTX25, then Mr. Coffee apparently haven't resolved any of these issues. Shortly after purchase, the silk-screen labeling on the faceplate came off during a routine wipe-down with nothing more than a damp dishcloth (no detergent added). I went to the Mr. Coffee site, lodged a complaint and to their credit, they sent a brand new unit. No questions asked. Didn't even ask me to return the defective unit, which I continued to use, gifting the replacement to someone. Two days ago this almost 4 year-old coffee maker, without any indication, ceased to brew. Upon reflection, I failed to notice that the coffee maker did not brew the previous day's full amount. Sometime during that session the unit simply quit, leaving a half-full reservoir of water. Nothing happens. The hot plate does not heat up. Water is not heated and pumped through. Nothing. Regardless of the age of this coffee maker, I think a device as simple in construction as this should possess at least a tad more longevity. There are virtually no moving parts. Most certainly nothing as complex as those used in a major appliance such as a dish washer or clothes dryer. Granted, there are components that undergo heating and cooling cycles, which over time exact wear. Be that as it may... What pains me more is that this is still a perfectly good unit, but is probably cheaper to replace than to fix. I will see if Goodwill or the Salvation Army will accept and repair it for donation. I can't stand the thought of simply tossing it in the trash. What a waste.

Happy with Mr. Coffee

I've had my Mr. Coffee for several years now and am very happy with the performance and it's ability to produce the kind of coffee I like. The only problem I've had is figuring out how to work the programmable feature.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Makes great iced tea pot!

I love my Keurig for coffee, but I use this Mr. Coffee maker exclusively for making iced tea. I use a one gallon tea bag and 12 cups of water. Since I use this for only tea, there is no coffee taste to my iced tea. I just pour tea into a gallon container, add one cup of sugar, cold water and ice. Perfect iced tea!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

The Mr. Coffee 12 cup machine

I manage Vacation Rentals and found the Mr. Coffee and hoped that it would be the perfect replacement coffee maker with an upscale look and features without the designer price. However out of the three that I purchased two have developed problems. On one it just would not turn on and the second one turns off within 10 minutes of brewing. These problems began about 3-4 months after purchase. The third however seems to be working well and I've had no complaints as of yet. Since they are not even used on a daily basis I would not recommend this as a durable long term product.

Good Coffee in an Instant

I love the Mr. Coffee brand. I always have trusted the brand and have purchased many others simply due to cost. Cost should not be considered as Mr. Coffee Coffee Makers are reasonably priced; i'm not sure why I have purchased others. It is dependable and long lasting. Other brands last for less than a year; Mr. Coffee outlasts all the other competitors.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Coffee ready when you need it!

Twelve-cup programmable Mr. Coffee coffeemaker's sleek design looks great on your counter top, and is easy to set up and program so that your favorite brew will be ready and waiting for you the next time you want it. Mr. Coffee's reliability means you can count on a great start to your day, without the cost or bother of a stop at that specialty cafe.

Mr. Coffee has worked for me for ten years.

I must have been lucky.  I've gotten ten years of usage out of my Mr. Coffee, and it's still going strong.  I love the programmable feature.  I hate getting up in the morning, and the smell of fresh coffee coming from downstairs helps.  I always set it the night before; because I stumble around half asleep until I've had a cup of coffee from it.  It is fool proof, easy to clean, and presents no problems.  I love it.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Good Coffee Maker

I'm a coffee lover and was excited when my fiance bought this coffee maker for me at Christmas almost 3 years ago. It ran like a charm, went off when it was supposed to and the best feature was that it shut off by itself! It just recently broke and I'm heading to the store to get another one. I would reccomend this coffee to anyone asked.

not satisfied

After using a Mr.coffee for 3 years and it began to show signs of slowing down despite regular cleanings.We decided to purchase another one. The new one worked about 1 mo. Since I did not have the sales slip we ate the loss and purchased another one. That also worked no longer than a month. The water sputters and spurts but will not run though. If you allow it to stay on and give it more time to work, it gets very hot and steams hot steam out of the top. I feel it is dangerous. My cupboards above the coffee maker filled with steam,and ruined all of the spices kept there. I kept the receipt for the last one so they gave us our money back. We are still out the cost of the first faulty one and would sure like to find a way to be refunded for that one. Meanwhile I am back to the one I purchased a few years ago. I guess quality control was better at that time.

A Great Cup of Coffee

I have owned a half dozen high end coffee makers with multiple features most costing well over one hundred dollars. They all broke after 2 years of use. That seems to be the life of a coffee maker in my home. A friend recommended Mr. Coffee. I thought for the price... why not try one. I have found that Mr. Coffee makes the best cup of hot coffee. I am going out now to buy my third Mr. Coffee in 5 years. The comments made by others regarding the behavior of the dying coffee maker: leaking, not making a full pot.... I have also noticed as my old pots enter their last days. My coffee pot is on everyday and often brews several pots. Needless to say, it gets a lot of use. I have always been impressed with the quality of the coffee brewed. I am a picky coffee drinker. I grind my own beans. I drink my coffee black and I like it strong. I appreciate the brew selection feature on this maker. I would recommend this model and this brand highly. You can't beat it for the price.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

On my 3rd one

My husband bought this for us around Christmas time. Not even a month later it just stopped working, it also had been leaking slightly from the bottom. We returned it and got another, that one didn't make it 3 weeks and the bottom was leaking and the pot. We emailed Mr.Coffee and they nicely sent us a 3rd one right to our home. That was not even a month ago. As of yesterday it was only filling to 4 cups and stopping, I have to shut it off and turn it back on again to get another 4 cups brewed and again to get the final 4 cups brewed. I am done with this! I will be buying a different brand today. The company did try to make it right, but I do not want another one of these machines, 3 was plenty.

On my second one!

Recieved first one as a gift, absolutely loved it, lasted about 1 1/2 years. One day it just wouldn't brew the coffee. So I went and bought another, same one. So far no problems, I have had this one for about 6months now. I have noticed that on the back there is a little hole that, if you dont pour the water in slowly, water will come out and all over the counter. After reading all the reviews, I dont think I'll buy another when this one dies!!! Not worth the money.

Poor Quality

I had this coffee maker for 2 years and loved it. Then one day out of the blue I went to make a cup of coffee and the water I put in to make the coffee all leaked out of the bottom of the coffee maker. I called the manufacturer and it was out of warranty - of course. I think a coffee maker should last longer than 2 years. I only used it maybe a couple times a week and both weekend days and only made 2 cups of coffee each time. I could see if I made a couple of pots of coffee each day, but that wasn't the case.
