Mainstays 5-Cup Coffee Maker

Black really outdid itself with the Mainstays 5-Cup Coffee Maker

By our senior writer: Kerim Dalkıran

Today is a exciting day for me because I get to review the Mainstays 5-Cup Coffee Maker! I am long time coffee machines writer, blogger and reviewer Kerim Dalkıran and you might know me from some of my other reviews. I've written for example about the Gift Set of 2016 Agatha Christie - The Queen of Crime Presentation Pack and PHQ Cards (Set of 6 Royal Mail Postcards) by Royal Mail Presentation Pack and PHQ Cards by Mail and the X10 KR19A Keychain Remote for 2 Devices with Bright and Dim Buttons by Smart Home or maybe you have heard of the editorial piece I did on the Bissell PowerForce Helix Turbo Rewind Bagless Vacuum Cleaner, 1797. Anyway, I have quite a lot experience trying out coffee machines and recommending only the best to my readers. Therefore I was really happy when this coffee machine came on my path.


Since 2012 I've been watching Black1 so I am really excited that I am finally able to try the Mainstays 5-Cup Coffee Maker and writing this review for you guys. While searching for the best deal on this coffee machine I stumbled across this offer on Amazon (You can buy it here.) and I immediately jumped on the opportunity. So I got my creditcard out and placed my order. With the standard same day delivery and free shipping it really is a bargain compared to the competitor brands and retailers. Later that day when my Mainstays 5-Cup Coffee Maker was delivered I opened it and was overjoyed with what I saw. I might sound a bit biassed being a longtime Black customer but this coffee machine really steps it up quite a bit, which is immediately noticeable when opening the package. Now that I've been testing it for a couple of days now I feel like I know enough about the Mainstays 5-Cup Coffee Maker to write this review. So keep reading and I will show you why I am so enthusiastic about my brand new Mainstays 5-Cup Coffee Maker.

Best Mainstays 5-Cup Coffee Maker deal


When reviewing coffee machines I usually begin with a summary, then a compact list of the pros and cons of the coffee machine after which you can find the rating and my conclusion and resources. So as you can read in the intro, I am really amazed by the Mainstays 5-Cup Coffee Maker. Black has really set a new standard with this one. The durability is fantastic, and frankly; it just looks super. I know looks aren't deciding with coffee machines, but it just needs to be addressed. I mean the price Amazon offered was and is by far the lowest so make sure to check them out when you are going to get one. As I have tested some alternatives before, I will say none come close to the Mainstays 5-Cup Coffee Maker. Just the flexibility alone crumbles all competition and the quality also seems to be top notch. The famous customer service of Black2 is always very happy to help if you have any kind of questions so if you ever run in to something with their coffee machines they'll be really supple with helping you find a solution. So just to recap; only positive things to say about the Mainstays 5-Cup Coffee Maker. Do read till the end tho because you there is a tiny surprise!


This pros list of the Mainstays 5-Cup Coffee Maker could be much longer, and is way longer than the conslist, but the description3 this site has will probably already say it all. Here is just a little piece: "
Mainstays 5-Cup Coffee Maker:

  • 120V/60Hz/700W
  • Mainstays coffee maker includes a removable filter basket
  • Water level window
  • Keep-warm function
  • High-temperature carafe
  • Domestic carafe
  • No filter
  • Coffee temperature equal or above 77 degrees Celsius
". So without further ado, this is the very much incomplete list:
  1. Mainstays Cup
  2. Maker
  3. Removable Filter BasketWater Level
  4. The amazing looks.
  5. The quality is great.
  6. It is everything it promises to be.
  7. $8.88 is just a steal comparing to the alternatives.
  8. There is no brand like Black when it comes to coffee machines.
  9. The durability is very nice, so better for the environment.
  10. In this price range, no other coffee machine coming out will be matching the Mainstays 5-Cup Coffee Maker for a long time to come.


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


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

This coffee machine really will make your life better and will make you a lot happier. (And I didn't even talk about the resale value6!) I've really done my best to be balanced in this article but it turned out to be so positive that I recommend you reading some other reviews, and you'll find out they will tell you the same goody goody story. So I can just say is that I fully recommend the Mainstays 5-Cup Coffee Maker to anyone in the market for it. And if you are still hesitating whether you need a new Mainstays 5-Cup Coffee Maker. Amazon has really made the choice simple. They sell you the Mainstays 5-Cup Coffee Maker HERE for the record low amount of $8.88. But enough talk. Just buy it and fall in love with your new Mainstays 5-Cup Coffee Maker!
