The Oxo Barista Brain 12-cup Brewing System stays away from multi-functioning kitchen appliances of today (which causes a ton of malfunctions) and sticks to what it can do best – brewing coffee. It does not only allow users to brew excellent coffee, but it also offers a wide array of brewing and water heating options which should be what a brewing system is made for. Many kitchen appliances of today will offer “all-in-one” packages on a single device. While this may be great for the short-term, it does bring a lot more headaches when such devices break down.
The Oxo Barista Brain 12-cup Brewing System Does What it Does Best – Create Excellent Coffee
The Oxo Barista Brain 12-cup Brewing System is slightly more expensive than other brewers out in today’s market, but its price tag does it justice. It is a very versatile coffeemaker, and perhaps it is the most flexible device in terms of functionalities of its class. Upon first glance of the Oxo Barista Brain Brewing System, you will tell that it serves in small portions. It can even serve as few as four cups. Other than serving such a small amount, you also have the option of being able to serve as much as 12 cups in one serving (hence the name). It is also able to function as an electric kettle that comes complete with precise temperature controls. In other words, it does not only serve excellent coffee but it will also fancy tea enthusiasts as well. Perhaps the only major drawback of this magnificent coffeemaker is that it takes more time to brew a single pot as compared to other devices of its type.
In terms of design, the Oxo Barista Brain is not a tiny kitchen appliance. As soon as you pull it out of the box and place it on a kitchen countertop, you will immediately see how towering it can be. It stands at 15.9-inches tall, has a width of 14.7 inches, and it is 7.5 inches deep. Aside from it having a towering height, the Brain Brewing System has fairly simple controls. All of the functions can be accessed by the Oxo button found at the device’s center. However, it is advised that you should calibrate the scale found inside the kettle pedestal prior to using the coffeemaker for the first time. With the Oxo Barista Brain 12-cup Brewing System, coffee and tea enthusiasts will be delighted by its performance. However, the size could be a little less bulky as it does take up a large kitchen space.
