OXO BREW Pour Over Coffee Dripper, Single Serve

Last updated: July 26, 2021

There are benefits to the plastic design of this pour over maker, including its durability. You also get a safer experience than the models with glass carafes since plastic doesn't transmit heat as much as glass. This plastic coffee maker is small in capacity, making it ideal for those who only need to make one to two cups of coffee at a time. This brewed delicious coffee when we tested it.

We looked at the top Pour Over Makers and dug through the reviews from some of the most popular review sites. Through this analysis, we've determined the best Pour Over Maker you should buy.

Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

The tank has a precise hole pattern to distribute water evenly over the coffee grounds and eliminates the need for that special kettle. And it still makes an excellent cup of coffee.
The tank is graduated for precise measurement of up to 12 ounces of water, so you won’t have to stand there waiting to pour in more water as it drips through. T
You simply pour the water in the auto drip basin, and several holes along the bottom ensure the grounds are evenly coated for a steady brew.
It’s all simple, light-weight, white and clear plastic. That also means that it’s dishwasher safe. And BPA free, if you worry about that kind of stuff.
For me, this product is ideal for the office. The OXO rep I spoke to addressed that, and where they think other uses for this pour over are: "We had a more general user in mind when developing this product: someone who enjoys the taste of pour-over coffee, but doesn’t have the special equipment, like a gooseneck kettle or scale, or even the know-how to make it at home."

What reviewers didn't like

This is a single-serve dripper, making up to a 12-ounce cup, so it’s not ideal if you brew coffee for two or more people in the mornings.
The OXO is labeled in 240, 280, 320, and 360 mL increments. (Those are 6, 8, 10, 12 oz). That’s all. If you want more you must brew again.
It is all plastic. The plastics are BPA free according to the box (bottom), but still, plastic has some issues with coffee and heat (retention, etc).
