This product is easy and simple to use. You put ground coffee into the top of the machine and fill the water container with the desired amount. Once you press the button, the machine starts to look within five seconds. The average time for the glass carafe to be filled is not specifically fast but you do not have to wait to long. Around 10 - 12 min is the average time depending on how strong you like the coffee.
One bad point is the fact that the first cup or so at the bottom of the carafe usually has a lot of coffee granules in it and it is not very nice to taste. Also when the carafe is filled when you pour the coffee it spills quite a lot however careful with it you are. A good point about this machine is that if you take the carafe out of the machine while it is still making the coffee the machine will stop dripping into the container and when you put it back it will continue which has been helpful for me when i did not want to wait for it to fill up. Despite this, when you take it off it you are not quick enough the machine will start to leak from the bottom which can get very messy. One more good point is the fact that machine can keep the coffee hot for at least an hour after making it. Overall for quality i would give this machine a 3/5.
In my opinion, the machine is fairly simple to clean. You remove the water tank, carafe and the filter. The water tank is plastic so you should not use hot water to clean it out and all it would need is a rinse out. The carafe should be washed up with hot water and washing up liquid and left to dry before putting back on the machine. The filter needs to rinsed out until the coffee granules are all out. Then again you wait for it to dry and put it back inside the machine. Overall for cleaning i give this machine a 4/5.
===Value for money===
As I bought this machine for £15 in my opinion, it is quite cheap. As it is very cheap it justifies the overall quality of the machine not being as good as some other products but it is also easy to use and clean so i am very happy with the value for money this product has. Overall for value for money, I give this product a 4/5.
Overall if someone wanted a cheap coffee machine which was easy to use, I would recommend this product to them as it is very good for value for money. Despite this, If someone was looking for a coffee machine with good quality and was willing to pay more for it than I would not recommend this to them.
I love the cookworks coffee machine. It's easy to use and keep clean. The price was great as only my partner drinks coffee and I did want to spent too much on it if it wasn't going to be used much. It makes around 3-4 cups of coffee and keeps them hot if you are a slow drinker. I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a small machine that is easy to use.
