Mr. Coffee ACCEL
(pittsburgh, PA, USA)
I must have owned over twenty coffee pots over the years, and this is the best I have ever used. I tend to buy Mr. Coffee, but I think I have owned every brand available. I usually burn my coffee makers out (literally - they sputter and die) within a few months, but this one is over a year old, and still going strong!
I love the auto turn-on timer! As a person who can't function without at least two cups of coffee in me, I fumble to the kitchen, to have fresh hot coffee waiting for me! The glass pourer (I can't think of the name - carafe?) doesn't leak, either. My mother-in-law always buys Kitchen-Aid, and every time you pour a cup of coffee, half of it spills! This pot has never spilled or leaked yet.
The filter basket is easy to clean, which is another good thing. I absolutely hate coffee makers that have filter baskets with three parts to take apart and clean! The basket easily opens and closes, without hitting the top of the carafe.
It has a hole in the back for cord storage. Not a lot of coffee makers have that. I always have to try to hide the cord, and this one hides it for me!
It also has a stopper so you can pour a cup of coffee when it's still brewing. I have had a couple of those, but they wore out fast. This one hasn't worn out yet!
I can honestly say, from a person who brews two or three pots of coffee a day, this is one of the best coffee makers on the market today. I can't remember the price I paid for it, though. But it was worth every cent! I would reccommend the Mr. Coffee ACCEL coffee maker to anyone who is looking for a coffee pot that is going to last them a long, long time!
