5.0 out of 5 stars because its a good one!, September 7, 2015

I was very pleasantly surprised to find this processed a pot of water in under 15 minutes. I always run filtered water through new coffee makers, in part to test them, but also to clean them before real use.

It began to drip scalding hot water into the basket in about two or three minutes, and ran constantly until all the water was processed. I expect it to take longer when the basket filter has ground coffee in it, but no more so than a full size coffee maker of this type.

The water is scalding hot, too hot to drink or touch. And I left it sit for about 10 minutes after all the water was through, and the heat plate under the carafe kept the water very hot.

The only thing that remains to be seen is whether this coffee maker is reliable long term, but I hope it is, because its a good one!

1.0 out of 5 stars Save your money, takes HOURS to brew, June 30, 2017

This review is from: Schumacher 1229 12V Coffee Maker (Automotive)
Yeah this coffee maker sucks.I wish I knew how bad it was before my time to return was up. Didn't use it until a week ago. I bought in preparation for camping in my camper. I is so slow, the coffee it does brew is barely lukewarm before even a few cups brews. Also it has to be exactly level too. even the camper does not need to be that exact. It wont drip into the carafe very well or not at all. I had to actually hold the carafe up to press the thing that lets coffee drip. I ended up having to fire up the propane stove-top to warm the coffee it did make. I wish I could return it, but guess ill just toss it. Its worthless. Going to buy a colman propane one instead. Save your money on this one.

4.0 out of 5 stars Used on a camping trip, worked just fine., July 21, 2014

This review is from: Schumacher 1229 12V Coffee Maker (Automotive)
It takes 45 minutes to brew 8 cups of coffee, I knew this before purchasing & I'm fine with it. I recently used this product on a camping trip in conjunction w/ Schumacher 1200 Peak Amp Portable Power Station. Since it does take such a long time to brew a pot of coffee it drained the generator down to 50%. Overall it worked well and I had no problems with the coffee maker. It's easy to clean & I've used it twice up to this point.

In regard to the other reviews saying it blew the fuse on the cigarette lighter adapter in their car; there is a warning label on the power cord that states, "IMPORTANT: This product draws more than 8 amps. Do not use cigarette outlet, use accessory power outlet only."
