I was flipping through my Sam's Club flyer this morning while I sipped my morning coffee and saw a brightly colored coffee maker that was just so..... cute? Cool? Bright? Fun? All of the above. The Bella Dots 12 cup coffee maker. I had to go online to see what I could find out about it.
It seems to be generally available in almost any retail store for about $35-$45 and comes in a variety of FUN colors. On almost every site I checked it had high marks, many stars and great reviews as a typical, carafe style coffee brewer. The one surprise low rating on Amazon. I am not sure it was warranted.
The man who gave it 1 star and horrible review did so for one reason; his wife took the last of the coffee, left dribble in the carafe and walked away, forgetting to turn it off. He came by later, smelled burnt coffee and turned it off. Then ranted about the machine not turning itself off. The thing is, the specs say it does have a 2 hour automatic turn off. But, obviously if there isn't much liquid to keep hot, it's going to burn. It's a human mistake, not an appliance mistake. I can't hold that 1 bad review against the product.
With its unique dot texture, gorgeous colors, and sleek design BELLA Dots will bring life to your kitchen and make you smile. No longer must you brew coffee with that same old silver and black box. The BELLA Dots Coffee Machine is unique and colorful.Just like you.
