Merle Braun Aromaster KF 32 coffee maker
I have a Braun 10 cup coffee maker that has served me well for many years. This is the brand that I prefer to buy because it has a long life, brews a good cup of coffee, and takes up very little counter space.
The price is very good too, compared to other brands. It has only the basic features, but that is fine with me.
I don't care if it doesn't automatically turn on the coffee pot at 6 a.m. in the morning. I figure that I can do without a few extra perks like that because of the price. Braun products have always served me well.
I think this company puts alot of time and effort into quality and design, and making dependable products.
We are probably going on 3 years of using this last Braun pot. On occasion, the coffee maker will need a cleaning if you have hard water. But this has not been a problem for me.
You use straight vinegar to decalcify the maker, and the instructions are clear and easy to follow in the instruction manual.
This coffee maker was purchased at Ace Hardware store for about $23.
