Product Description
The “Zutto” Collection is Zojirushi’s first collection of products that is designed and developed as a series of products. The concept of the Zutto Collection was born as a result of the collaboration between Zojirushi and an interior designer in Japan. Unlike other Zojirushi products, the physical body of the Zutto was designed first, then the inner technology. Zutto (Zoot-tow), meaning “always” in Japanese, is designed to be enjoyed and used universally, for any occasion, anytime. This new Zutto Drip Coffee Maker is a convenient 5 cup size.

To be fair, I didn’t even try to make coffee in this maker, so I am not saying it makes poor quality coffee. I’ve only had it out of the box for about 1/2 hour, and it’s going back.

Some warnings before you purchase:

- NO AUTO SHUT OFF. For the price that should be a basic safty function.

- The “Auto Keep-warm” option just means the warming plate stays on till you turn it off… which they don’t recommend leaving on for more than 15 mins.

- The plastic lid will fall off unless you keep your thumb firmly on it when you pour.

- Don’t be mislead by the large coffee pot. It only fills up about half way.

The water tank on the EC-DAC50 Zutto Coffee Maker is made with a Polystyrene plastic, which is carcinogenic.

I just received the order of this coffee maker. When I opened up the box, the first thing I noticed is the print “Made in China”. When I pay $65 for a basic function coffee maker like this one I expect something from Japan. I have some appliances at home from same brand they are “Made in Japan”. Be aware!

After reading all the reviews I decided to side with the good reviews and think positive. Wrong choice.

First the water spits out the side as it drips. The lid falls off when you pour even with your thumb on top. If you cover it any more you would be burned. And as another reviewer said the band is so lose it feels like the handle is going to fall off.

If you are willing to deal with that you won’t be when you taste the coffee. I tried 5 times opening new bags of coffee too. Awful tasting. Like chemicals.

So it is going back so glad Amazon has the 30 day return policy. Too much to pay for something that doesn’t work.

I received this for a Christmas gift and like everything I read about it, EXCEPT having to unplug it every time we use it. Do you who already have this coffee maker, and use it daily, actually unplug it after every use???

Thanks for your responses.
