1. Artistic Design

This is a 2-in-1 model that combines a single serve machine on one side and a drip coffee maker on the other side.

Each of these 2 units is partially independent in that each side has a separate water reservoir and coffee filter assembly. However, they share a common water pump, which makes it impossible to use both sides at the same time.

Aesthetics-wise, most coffee lovers who have reviewed the SS 15 seem appealed by its general design and its 2 colors; silver and black. Our review team was also impressed by its overall clean appearance and nicely labeled control panel.

2. Breezy controls

As we reviewed the SS 15 coffee center, the first thing that caught our attention was its no-brainer control panel. We believe a great coffee experience starts right from the coffee maker’s ease of usage.

Unlike machines that are entirely controlled from a touch-sensitive LCD panel, we feel that button controls are much more user-friendly and foolproof, especially for first-timers. This makes more sense when the manufacturer has cared to label each button clearly as it’s the case with this coffee maker.

3. Easement of Cleaning

Making coffee is the most filthy operation. But this coffee maker’s 40 oz removable water reservoir and drip tray never let your coffee maker area messy. By removing the drip tray you can clean it regularly after using. For deep cleaning you need to descale it. Those who are not acquainted with descaling can follow the instructions from the user manual.

4. As a drip coffee maker

The carafe side of this coffee machine is handy when you want to make more than one cup of coffee in one cycle. We believe this will be your go-to side when you are just hanging around your home and in the evenings. Interestingly, this side also offers a 20-second window for you to grab a cup before the brewing cycle ends.

As a carafe coffee system, the SS-15 allows you to brew freshly ground or pre-ground coffee beans to suit your exact needs. You can choose to use either the included goldtone cone-shaped coffee filter or paper filters (sold separately).
