Help me pick a coffee maker
I know a coffee maker isn't as glamorous as a new range or refrigerator, but I use one every day. My current model is a stainless steel Cuisinart thermal carafe model that also grinds beans.
The grind aspect isn't good because when adding water, there is a tendency to spill some into the bean reservoir and it clogs. Also, the top of the carafe seems to clog too frequently and too many times I come into the kitchen with coffee all over my counters.
I like the thermal carafe aspect, but don't need a built-in grinder....I do that separately anyway.
What I need is HOT coffee...I have never owned a coffee maker that I didn't have to microwave the coffee before drinking it. Also, great tasting, stainless (or attractive) would be nice. I always am amazed at how HOT the coffee is at McDonald's..that's how hot I want mine at home! Any suggestions?
