If you are looking for value to money and reliable coffee maker machine, i would certainly recommend you to use the cuisinart brand. I have recently bought Cuisinart DCC-1200 12-Cup Brew Central Coffeemaker for $65.95 after reading the review at kitchen stuff review website (see source). Here i quote the Cuisinart Coffeemaker review i read from the site:
"This state of the art coffeemaker lets you fine tune the process from filtering the water you brew with to keeping the brewed coffee at the precise temperature you desire. If you’re the impatient type you can grab a cup before brewing is complete (or program your coffee to be ready and waiting at wake up time), and if you tend to be forgetful, this appliance has auto shut off. Seems as though Cuisinart has covered all the bases in this deluxe coffeemaker."
Recently i find out that this coffeemaker is on the top 10 best seller kitchenware in amazon site too.
