I’ve always been more of a tea person. On the rare occasion I may choose to have some coffee I always do it myself rather use a coffeemaker. Therefore I thought it would be a good idea to see how simple it is to set up and use a coffeemaker.
I searched online and chose the first one I saw; the TF4/TF5 Coffeemaker.
I was impressed by how in depth the manual covered every potential issue possible. It was well organized and flowed well. Information was not just scattered all about the place as I have seen with other manuals.
The manual starts off with important safeguard information stressing a safety first approach. As with most products, users want to be able to properly benefit from whatever they are using while doing so in a safe manner. The table of contents is then placed on the next page and I found this a little odd as it should be the first page in my opinion. However it isn’t that big of a problem to the user. The manual itself goes into great detail on how to operate the appliance and deliver the end product, that is, a great batch of coffee. It is so easy to understand I think that anyone with common sense can follow these instructions. There is also a diagram of all the parts provided in case one is confused about the set up. This is next to the suggested coffee measurement chart telling customers what to do for their ideal cup. The manual even goes so far as to tell customers how to clean their new appliance. Again this is done in a manner which is simple and easy to understand. The troubleshooting section then highlight potential problems and tells you how to deal with them accordingly. Lastly, there is then a repeat of everything, this time in Spanish, and that is very helpful to persons more fluent in that language.
Overall, the manual is very concise yet effective , as it should be, and I see no reason for anyone to not find it useless.
