My Braun coffee maker died last week after 10 years of reliable service. The reviews for today’s Braun coffee makers didn’t impress me so I turned to the October 2017 issue of Consumer Reports to see how they ranked the current crop of coffee makers. The Cuisnart 14-Cup Programmable Coffee Maker (Model DCC-3200) ranked Number One. We have a Cuisnart toaster that we love. So we checked prices at various stores and online. AMAZON had the Cuisnart DCC-3200 for $72. The list price was $100. But Diane had a Kohl’s coupon for $10 off a $50 (or more) purchase. Kohl’s also sent Diane a 20% coupon on one item. Then, when the Kohl’s cashier cashed us out, Diane received $10 of Kohl’s cash! We got the Cuisnart Coffee Maker for about $68.
I don’t need a machine to grind my coffee beans. I don’t need a lot of bells and whistles. I just want a reliable coffee maker. What kind of coffee maker do you have? Do you like it? GRADE: A (after one week of operation…so far so good!)
