Zojirushi EC-YSC100 Review

Overview

Admittedly Zojirushi is not a brand targeting solely coffee makers but has built a good reputation in general. Their product line consists of several household models but one of their coffee makers stands out. The Zojirushi EC-YSC100 model is a 10 cup coffee maker built out of stainless steel and plastic parts. It features a metal thermal carafe with thumb activated pouring system and a removable water reservoir. A simple touch panel matched with an LCD screen at front controls the whole unit. It is worth to mention that all surfaces which come in contact with coffee are PBA free.

Testing

Pouring water into the reservoir is mess free as you can remove it and avoid spilling over. Its clearly marked levels enable to accurately fill up to the desirable amount. The filter basket makes use of flat bottom coffee filters which allow for even brewing of ground. Operating is straightforward by simply pressing the start button. Brewing process is performed at 200°F which is the ideal temperature for optimum coffee extraction, but takes too long.

After the completion of brewing and removal of carafe from the base, a spring mechanism prevents dripping from filter basket. Notably, the latter is fully removable which allows for an efortless cleaning. Pouring coffee is very convenient thanks to its thumb activated lid. You just press the button and coffee pours out smoothly. Regarding coffee taste is kind of bitter and it seems that the long brewing has a lot tot do with this.

Heat preservance is successfully achieved by means of the thermo carafe’s vacuum insulated double wall. High temperatures of around 150°F can be maintained for almost 12 hours, which is truly phenomenal. Something that may disturb you though is the loud noise signal that lets you know when the brewing is complete. Cleaning the carafe may also be troublesome as its steep angles prevent of reaching the bottom.

Verdict

Clearly not the most expensive but not the cheapest coffee maker too, definitely justifies its price tag. Certainly a durable coffee maker with enormous coffee capacity and impressive heat preservance properties. Simple and unambiguous control panel will keep your sanity in place and let you enjoy the outcome. A delightful cup of coffee!
