Mr. Coffee Model ISX23
This is the coffee maker I use presently. The Mr. Coffee model ISX23 is aesthetically pleasing to the eye and relatively quiet when brewing. This is important to me due to the fact that I get up quite a bit earlier than my family to leave for work and do not want to bother them.
This particular model has a feature I like especially-a timer. The Mr. Coffee ISX23 can be set to start a pot of java before my feet ever hit the floor. When I do get up, I can grab a cup to wake up with and another cup to hit the road with.
The clock on the front is a bright green and is an LCD analog style clock. It tells the time of day all day and is also used to set the timer for delay brewing. On the front of the machine is a button that you hold in while you set the time to start the morning pot. The clock is easily seen without having to turn on the lights-VERY nice indeed!
But probably the best feature of the Mr. Coffee ISX23 is the strength selection on the front of the maker. There is a two setting selector that is activated with a push button. A red LED light indicates "strong" brewing while a green LED light indicates "regular" brewing. For those days when you need a boost that "strong" setting is a life saver!
All of the features are easy to use and figure out; even for a non-technical person. All features operate via a push button on the front and LEDs tell you what the makers doing. There is a light for cleaning, for brewing and for delayed brewing.Editor's note
Mr. Coffee ISX23 12 cup coffee maker has indeed a lot of functionality that is very useful.
However, the user reviews for this coffee maker are in general quite poor with some owners complaining about problems with leaking and about the coffee maker not lasting very long.
