What is the OXO Pour Over Coffee Maker with Water Tank?

oxo-pour-over-coffeemaker-with-water-tank-review

The Oxo Pour Over Coffee Maker with Water Tank is a special pour-over brewing system that provides awesome pour-over coffee results and flavor.

At the same time, it also requires far less hassle and pouring when compared to most other options on the market, making it an ideal choice for beginner and experienced brewers alike.

How’s It Different?

The Oxo Pour-Over Coffeemaker allows individuals to skip the tedious and sometimes confusing methods usually associated with pour-over brewing techniques.

This can include anything from having to meticulously pour hot water onto the grounds at a specific speed or pace for the optimum brew, down to avoiding the need for expensive gooseneck kettles, scales, timers, and all the rest.

The Oxo Pour-Over Drip Coffee Maker does most of the work for you, even while providing great pour-over results.


So, we basically chose the Oxo Pourover Coffeemaker with the water tank for its cost-effectiveness, easy-to-use convenience, and low-maintenance brewing option while still having the ability to go into full pour-over mode if we wanted to.

What We Like About The Oxo

oxo-pour-over-with-water-tank-coffeemaker-drip-style
The Oxo Pourover Coffeemaker with Water Tank, featuring ounces and millimeter markings.
  • It’s super affordable: If you’re on a budget or just not ready to invest a ton of money, then you might love the Oxo, which is marked as one of the lowest-priced options available while still giving you a huge bang for your buck.
  • Extremely compact: Awesome for big and small kitchens alike—especially if you’re into minimalism, less clutter, or happen to be short on space.
  • Portable: Awesome when it comes to portability and comparable to the AeroPress, which we also own, and just as easy to use and clean up. Maybe more so. While not as compact as the AeroPress, the Oxo is something you could still easily travel with.
  • Durable and sturdy construction: It features very durable and dishwasher-safe plastic throughout, making it ideal for campers, travelers, and clumsy people alike.
  • Versatile: Fits most mug sizes.
  • User-friendly: User-friendly measurements are printed on the side of the drip vessel, which also helps you figure out your water to coffee ratio without having to use a scale, similar to a drip brewer
  • It’s an all-in-one: It gives you the option to do a “lazy” pour-over while still getting some awesome pour-over-like flavor, using its drip vessel, or to go full-on pour-over method.
  • It lets you ease into traditional pour-over brewing: You don’t have to immediately invest in a gooseneck kettle if you don’t want to.
  • It’s easy to clean: It’s extremely easy to keep clean and wash, regardless if you do so by hand or in the dishwasher. Plus, there’s no need to descale as you would with a traditional coffeemaker.
  • Low maintenance: As mentioned in the previous bullet, it’s extremely easy to clean and maintain, requiring no power or descaling maintenance.
  • Cost-effective: It’s super inexpensive for all that you get, typically coming in under $20.
  • Less mess: One thing that we love about the kind of coffee-making experience is that there seems to be a lot less mess involved.
    • Most days, you can simply get away with pitching the grounds and filter out and then rinsing the product clean, giving it a light washing, or tossing it in the dishwasher.
    • The “pot” or brewing vessel is your mug, which you wash anyway, and there are no extra parts besides the lid and tank.
    • It also seems to be less likely to make a mess and involve less waste, unlike some other brewers we’ve tried, such as the AeroPress, which I somehow always seem to make a mess with, or French Presses and single-serve brewers like Tassimo or Keurig brewers.

Conclusion

all-about-the-oxo-pour-over-coffee-maker-with-drip-style-water-tank-review

In the end, we find that the Oxo Pour Over Coffee Maker with Water Tank isn’t just a handy, affordable, and cost-effective way to get into making pour-over coffees, but it really makes a good cup of brew.

We love how it can be ideal for pour-over novices, lazy baristas, and experienced java gurus alike. And we appreciate how it allows you to start with easy drip-style brewing and evolve to or use the Oxo brewer without the tank for the more traditional pour-over brewing method.

Best of all, it’s more than possible to achieve the same good-tasting each time you brew a cup of your favorite coffee. Much of this is thanks to the easy and convenient way the Oxo Pour-over Coffeemaker helps you easily measure your coffee-to-water ratio and the consistent pour-over from its drip-style water tank.

Overall, we found that it produces excellent-tasting coffee, even when compared to our AeroPress and regular coffeemaker. And we typically gravitate towards using it for our everyday brew, often with the water tank.

Things to Consider

  • Using the various parts takes some getting used to when compared to traditional coffeemakers or other brewing setups, like the AeroPress, but that’s pretty much the case with any type of setup you switch to.
  • It’s made of plastic, though we obviously knew that going in.
  • It would be helpful if OXO had found a way to include the coffee scoop measurements on the brewer itself since I have a tendency to lose or accidentally throw out instructional papers I might need later. Luckily, this can be found online.
