I am not too keen on the coffee maker, you know why?
We had a gift last Christmas and it was that coffee maker that grinds and brew your coffee on time,etc... We returned it, because the coffee was to weak even after putting it to the strongest, then we got the one without the grinder but pretty high tech too. We still don`t like it,but are using it. The coffee does not taste good and is too weak.The old coffee maker we still have but the glass pyrex carafe is broken. But, do you know which coffee make I prefer over all, it is this Italian Expresso machine that you put on the stove.(not expensive but all the richness and flavour of the coffee is to die for.)
another thing that I bought with the rest of the money from the exchange of the high-tech coffee maker is a simple waffle maker, and it is so good...
PD, what about good old eggs in the pan that tastes something. ))))))
