Mainstays 5-Cup Coffee Maker

I tried the Mainstays 5-Cup Coffee Maker and why you need one too.

By our senior writer: Eevi Ollila

I've been wanting to write this piece for a long time. And now I finally get to write the in-depth review of the Mainstays 5-Cup Coffee Maker! I, Eevi Ollila, am used to write about coffee machines, because I have done so for years. You have hopefully seen my articles about the Range Kleen 4-Piece Drip Bowl, Style A fits Plug-in Electric Ranges Amana, Crosley, Frigidaire, Kenmore, Maytag, Whirlpool, Chrome by Kenmore and the Honeywell RPLS730B1000/U 7-Day Programmable Switch for Lights and Motors - White by Smart Home. I also did a big piece on the Cafespresso Massieno Intero Espresso, Nespresso Compatible Pods (Capsules), 60 Ct.. So you might say I have the know-how to be writing about coffee machines. So naturally I was very happy when I got this coffee machine in the mail!

Introduction

I've been a fan of Black coffee machines1 for years and I was really looking forward to finally trying the Mainstays 5-Cup Coffee Maker and reviewing it for you guys. I found the best deal on this site on Amazon (You can buy the Mainstays 5-Cup Coffee Maker here.) and I didn't hesitate a moment. So I reached for my creditcard and bought one straight away. I was glad it had free shipping and 24 hours delivery when I ordered it because I couldn't wait! When my Mainstays 5-Cup Coffee Maker arrived the next day I ripped open the packaging and was really happy with what I saw. As I said before I'm a huge Black enthusiast but I can be very critical and objective too, especially when writing for my readers. :-) After testing it for about a week now I am confident that I have the authority to write this piece. So read on and I will tell you all about my findings and if you should buy this thing.

Summary

I always start my reviews about coffee machines with a summary, then a clear list of the pros and cons after which I'll give my rating and conclusion. So as you may have understood from the intro, I am blown away by the Mainstays 5-Cup Coffee Maker. Black has really outdone itself on this one. The quality is great, and frankly; it just looks awesome. I know aesthetics aren't everything with coffee machines, but it just needs to be said. Of course the price I got at Amazon was and is unbeatable so make sure to check them out when you decide to buy one yourself. As I have tried many alternatives before, I really got to say they are no match for the Mainstays 5-Cup Coffee Maker. Just the functionalities alone beats all competitors and the durability also seems to be top notch. The customer service of Black2 is famous for being really generous so if you ever run in to any kind of problem with their coffee machines they're always really lenient with finding a solution. Long story short; not much negative to say about the Mainstays 5-Cup Coffee Maker really. Make sure to read to the end tho because you might be in for a small surprise!

Pros

The list of pros of this Mainstays 5-Cup Coffee Maker is going to be much longer than the conslist and the description3 this site gives already lists them quite well. To quote just an excerpt: "

  6. The price of $8.88 is a bargain compared to the competition.
  7. Black is leading the market when it comes to coffee machines.
  8. The durability is great, so it's good for the environment.
  9. No other coffee machine coming out in this price range will be comparable for the coming months if not years.

Cons

I had a tough time thinking of cons for the Mainstays 5-Cup Coffee Maker. Better prices are of course always nice and I don't know if you actually need this luxurious quality4. That's a thing only you can figure out for yourself. However, the list:

  1. Maybe the aesthetics of the coffee machine are not your style.
  2. It's a premium coffee machine so chances are you don't need this abundance of quality.
  3. The Mainstays 5-Cup Coffee Maker is loved by a lot of professionals so soon everybody will probably have one.

Best Black coffee machine in years

Rating

Considering the points above I can only conclude that the Mainstays 5-Cup Coffee Maker deserves 5 stars, 10/10 an A+++ and just overall praise5. I've read reviews by people saying that it's a little too perfect and that it doesn't leave room for the competition, but I don't really mind a nice monopoly. And Black sure is heading to become one with this coffee machine!

★★★★★

Verdict and Conclusion

In conclusion, my verdict is that the Mainstays 5-Cup Coffee Maker really will make your life more fun and just better altogether. (And did I mention the resale value6 of Black coffee machines?) I've done my utmost to view this thing from all possible angles in this piece but I see it sounds all very positive. So please read some more reviews, and you'll see that it's not me that is so enthusiast. So let me just say is that I fully, fully, recommend the Mainstays 5-Cup Coffee Maker for now and the future until Black will come up with its successor. And if you are still hesitating whether you want this new Mainstays 5-Cup Coffee Maker. Amazon really has a great deal on it now. They have the Mainstays 5-Cup Coffee Maker on sale HERE for the record low of $8.88. But enough reading. Just go get it and admire your very own, very new Mainstays 5-Cup Coffee Maker!
