Cookworks Coffee Machine Introduction Me and my husband love coffee, and drink it daily. We used to have a café tier, you know the little glass things which you put ground coffee into and press down? But one day my husband smashed it by accident and so since it’s been instant coffee all round...

Simple and effective

Intro I likes my cakes, and I likes me biscuits, but neither meet any of my standards if they are not supported by a cup of good coffee. I usually drink Kenco Rapport instant coffee which I find very nice and more than acceptable even with a cake or biscuit, but it is the good filter coffee...

Cheap, sturdy, easy to clean

Doesn't make a lot of coffee

Who doesn't enjoy the smell and taste of a freshly made cup of filter coffee? Well, me actually. Let me tell you more...

“Cheap to buy, quality to use”

Cheap, works well and cleans easily

None

I love this machine for its ease of use, but also for the fact that it was incredibly cheap and does the same job as machines that come in at ten times the price. It was purchased as my third coffee maker in one year (I'm a clumsy beast), so I think I am now in a position to offer an objective...

Before making coffee its worth running several lots of water through with salt added to remove smells,I always do this with coffee makers and its a worthwhile procedure,even baking powder will help to "Clear" the system of taste and smells . The machine makes enough coffee for 3 mugs,fine for my use as that's as much as I need. Its the second best coffee maker,at any price, that Ive owned for making hot coffee . Do pour slowly with the jug resting on the cup rim to avoid spills. At under £8 its a bargain and Ive no hesitation in recommending it

published 16/06/2008

I have used the COOKWORKS coffee maker more than 20 times and there is a plastic smell when coffee is brewing that I can taste in the coffee made. It does make hot coffee and is very cheap, but the awful plastic smell and taste means that I no longer use it. I have contacted the manufacturers and I'm waiting for a reply as to what is causing this problem.

Filter lets some fine sediment through.

After the company I work for refused to renew the contract for the Tea & Coffee vending machines, myself and my co-workers were left without our daily caffeine hits. I got the machine from Argos for about £5 and for the price I was expecting a very flimsy bit of kit that would last about 5...
