Intro I likes my cakes, and I likes me biscuits, but neither me 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 that's makes either sweet taste so much better. There are vary grades and types of filter coffee and I guess as with most drinks its all a matter of taste. My current preference is Dow Egberts, which I switched to recently, and in all likelihood will switch from sometime in the future in order to keep my coffee experience new. Of course the crucial ...

I've requested that the standard white Cookworks Filter Coffee Maker be added to this site more times than I care to mention. Dooyoo insist that this is the same product as the one I want to review, even though it isn't, so I'll just have to write my review here. The product I'm actually referring to is Argos Catalogue number 423/3244. The full retail price for this bargain machine is only £14.99, which is a darn good price in my opinion. But you can get it even cheaper in the sale at the moment for £7.79, and more amazing still, I paid only around £4 for one of these in the January sales just past!! At that price I didn't expect a lot, so I was pretty ... Read the complete review

== 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. Two days ago I saw an advertisement for this Cookworks coffee machine from Argos for just £4.99, it said it would make 10-12 cups of coffee, so we decided we would buy one for when the family came down as it would mean we could make a pot for all of us, as if it would make 10 cups of normal sized coffees, it would make around 5 large cups of coffee ...

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 view on the budget coffee maker market ;-) After the initial clean out, I've not had a single issue with this machine, it's flawless. Coffee is dumped into the small basket, water goes into the reserve and *surprisingly quickly* you have a passable cup of the black stuff. I will point out two things for potential purchasers to consider: 1) Remember ... Read the complete review

I purchased this cook works coffee maker from Argos a week ago and was really excited but much to my dismay it just wasn't what I wanted. I bought this temporarily before I bought an expensive coffee machine but I regret spending eleven pounds on this. I used it once and Because the filter is now stained with coffee I cannot return it. I have just cleaned it and packed it away. It looked nice and classy on my kitchen counter, it was easy to use, simply fill the tank up at the back, put a spoon of coffee in at the top and turn it on. It just made a grumbling sound, which I was ok with, as long as it gave me good coffee but the coffee just wasn't warming up like I'd ... Read the complete review
