Anyone have any experience with the Zoirushi EC-BD15 10 cup thermal carafe drip coffee maker?

Thanks
John

Hi John. After much research I purchased a Zoji from Galtak in Toronto. I paid $89.00 cdn plus postage and taxes. I am in love with it!  It is very well designed, all the controls and parts fit together very well and work just as they should. I got a Swissgold #4 filter to go with it - it fits perfectly, contrary to some reports.  The carafe keeps coffee hot for acouple of hours, longer if your not fussy about the temperature ( I am).  I have experienced none of the downfalls I read about in some of the reviews ( #4 filter doesnt fit, drips water on counter, lid of carafe very hard to handle etc ) . Best of all, it makes an outstanding cup of coffee! The brew is smooth with lots of flavour and mouth-feel, and doesnt diminish by the third cup an hour later. The only disappointment I had was that it turned out to be made in China, not Japan, but what isnt nowadays? Hope this was helpfull - good luck with your purchase! Clint.

I purchased one off Amazon when they had a $25 off with a purchase of x amount and higher.  It came in, I measured the temp, it got to 190, I packaged it up and sent it back.  I'm just going to get another Presto Scandi for the office and a Zojirushi glass-lined thermal 1 Liter.  BTW, I live in Dallas and measured with a digital thermo that hits 212 spot-on in boiling water.  My Presto hits 196 without even flinching.

I bought one in March and as hard as I tried, I couldn't get the coffee strong enough for my liking.  I tried both papers and gold filters.  If I used enough coffee with the gold filter, it tended to overflow.  I love the carafe and continue to use it, but instead bought a Krups Moka Brew.  Wonderful, strong, flavorful non bitter coffee.  I brew the coffee in the Moka Brew and then pour it in the Zoji carafe to mix it and keep it warm. Since I now home roast and never roast as dark as I used to get with Starbucks, I needed something to bring out the flavor of the origin.  The Krups Moka Brew does that better than the Zoji. I'll never go back to just drip.
