Topic: Zojirushi coffee makers, was RIP Coffemaker (10 msgs / 172 lines)
1) From: Brian Kamnetz
There has been a good number of very complimentary things said here on
the list about Zojirushi products, but I don't recall discussion of
the Zojirushi coffee makers when the better coffee makers (such as the
TV) are being mentioned. Is that because people are unhappy with the
Zojirushi coffee makers, or simply unfamiliar with them, or something
else? My brother-in-law has one and likes it, but I'm sure he hasn't
tested brew temps, etc.

I would be interested in knowing this as well.  Being a big fan of their
rice cookers I am curious if their other products perform as well.
Not that I am in the market for one.  Planning on buying a Newco OCS 8 next
month if the wife gives the green light.  She mumbled something about
diapers, but I am sure we can free range the baby for a month or so...  We
have a shop vac

Yeah, same here, Robert, I'm not in the market (my moka pot is perfect
for me), just curious. I did go so far as to look at consumer reviews
and most were positive, but there were a significant number of people
who reported problems.

I like their vacuum bottles and their induction-heating rice cooker,  
but haven't tried their coffee maker.  Didn't know they made one

lets not get into horsepower again.  The last scientific diatribe made my
head hurt.
Besides, it ain't a big one.

We  tested one a long while back and found it nothing more than 
ordinary. In fact, it really looked like a "private label" job. But I 
noticed a different model that we had not tested yet on their list. I 
will look into that.

It appears that all they have are the ones I already tested. The 
thermal carafe model was very disappointing, underpowered, poor 
results. The new mini 5 cup model is high design, but ends up 
functioning right in the ballpark for your hotel room coffee maker. 
So nothing new from Zojirushi. I was looking at what appeared to be a 
really neat-featured brewer from Tiger, but it is not available in US 
voltages, Japan only. I tried to look into this nice Siemans brewer 
last year, but same issues, and some long term reliability issues too.
