It has an appealing look and sleek design, works well and makes really good coffee.
It includes a sturdy Glass carafe, Translucent water tank, water-level windows and a removable filter basket for easy cleaning.
If you are familiar with coffee makers, you do know about the common troubles of dripping machines, coffee not being hot enough or not tasting best, and other common defects.
Not this one. This 10 cup coffee maker reportedly does not have problems of this sort.
The 10 cup coffee machine features a timer, automatic shut-off feature, on-off switch, and an analog clock with a glowing blue light.
You can program it to brew the coffee at a give time automatically, for example, at the time when you get up in the morning, so that you have your fresh cup of morning coffee ready.
It shuts off automatically after two hours, so you don’t have to worry about shutting it off. The features are easy to set.
The reservoir has a wide opening so you can pour in the water without worrying of spills. Earlier versions of this model did have some problem with this; however, they have redesigned it and now it reportedly functions well.
The 10 cup coffeemaker works fast, is easy to operate and does not take up much space on the countertop.
One major advantage of this coffee maker is that makes really hot (at about 180 degree, as opposed to many other home coffee makers) and great-tasting, flavorful coffee, something you can’t say for every coffee maker out there.
It brews 10 5oz cups of coffee at the rate of about a cup a minute.
Because it is stainless steel, you’ll need to get used not to touch it or you’ll leave fingers prints on it.
Also, there are complaints of the heating plate getting rusted with the time.
Another flaw of the 10 cup coffee maker is the carafe, which is actually good quality, but it has a lid that can’t be removed, so although reported by the manufacturer as being dishwasher safe, it is in fact impossible to wash it in the dishwasher since you can’t remove the lid.
As is often the case with lower-end units, some people have experienced malfunctions and short lifespan of this 10 cup coffee maker. It may not last forever, and in some cases not even for too long.
Overall, it is a great stainless steel 10 cup drip coffee maker with a nice, attractive appearance and functionality. Works well, is easy to handle and clean and makes great coffee.
It is priced affordably at about $50 at this time at Amazon’s site.

That Brews Fast
It is great as a home coffee maker if you drink several cups of coffee or there are several drinkers in your house. It also serves well as an office coffee machine.
To use it, pour water into the reservoir and heat the tank that has a built-in thermostat to keep the water at proper temperature hot enough to brew but not too hot to spoil the coffee.
You can also use the available hot water for tea or other purposes, not only to make coffee.
The 10 cup coffee maker comes with a glass decanter and warming plate with an "on/off" switch.
The machine also has a switch to turn off the tank heater if you don’t have to use it for a while.
If you use it to brew just one pot of coffee you need to wait about 15 minutes for the tank to get heated. Otherwise, the remaining water in the tank remains heated at controlled temperature available for brewing another pot that will take just about 3 minutes.
This means, too, that to brew fast you will have to leave the machine plugged in, in order for the water in the tank to remain heated.
One drawback of this 10 cup coffee maker is that it does not have an automatic shut-off feature.
Listed price at Amazon’s site at this time is about $100.

The 10 cup Bunn coffee maker(5 once cups – 50 oz altogether) has a tank that is made of stainless steel. It is a well-built, brews 4 to 10 cups of coffee (5 oz each) in 3 minutes.
It has a warmer plate with an on/off switch and includes a glass decanter.
It has a preheated water tank (in addition to the reservoir where you add the water into), using electric power. You may turn it off, which means you’ll wait about 15 minutes the next time you turn it on.
There are some complains about spilling coffee when pouring because of the pot design.
It has not timer, no removable water tank, no strength settings.
The price on Amazon’s site at the current time of this writing is about $92.

Coffee Grinder Brewer
This is a grind and brew coffee maker that both grinds and brews the coffee beans.
The 10 cup coffee maker has a nice look and design and makes great-tasting, flavor-rich coffee. It features a Conical burr coffee grinder, auto shut-off, clock and programmable timer.
It has 5 settings for grinding from fine to coarse ground and 3 settings for strength of the coffee, from strong to weak.
It includes a cone filter and a glass carafe.
It has some reported issues, like throwing ground around after grinding when ground is transferred from the coffee bean grinder part to the filter, and the carafe may drip when pouring coffee or water.
Many cases of malfunctions of the heating element and other parts and a short lifespan of the grinder coffee maker have been reported.
It is priced at about $150 at Amazon's site at the time of this writing.

That Makes Great-Tasting Coffee
The coffeemaker comes with a stainless thermal carafe with 2 lids, a brew-thru lid and a keep-warm lid to keep the coffee warm after brewing.
If you appreciate great tasting coffee and are ready to spend for it, this coffeemaker may be for you.
It IS expensive at about $300 (at this time), but it does make great, rich coffee. So, if you want to use a drip coffee machine and not a french press coffee maker but still want to enjoy a great, flavorful cup of coffee, you may think of this one.
Users agree that the 10 cups coffee maker makes a noticeable difference in the taste of the coffee. You can use the same coffee you would use with a low-end coffee maker, but brewed with this machine it will taste a lot better.
The thermal carafe that is included keeps the coffee warm after brewing.
Despite its price, it does not have many fancy features, like a timer, and with its plastic parts and general design it may not look most pretty.
It is a basic coffee machine, but if you care most for the taste of the coffee and not for all the bells and whistles and are ready to spend good money for it, this is a coffeemaker to consider.
Don’t confuse the so-called "10 cups" with the cups people are used to in the US, as it refers to 10 5oz cups and not the larger size coffee cups.
Bottom line: I personally think the 10 cup coffeemaker is overpriced, and for a high-end coffeemaker the plastic parts may be surprising. If you are are sure you want to spend that much for a machine that makes great-tasting coffee, go for it.
