Coffee makers seem to be a problem for me. I recently purchased a Cuisinart coffee maker. Actually this is the second Cuisinart coffee maker I bought. My first coffee maker had a stainless steal coffee pot, I loved the look. I have to say I copied my girlfriend. The pot just looked so nice, and she said it also kept the coffee hot, this was good. So this coffee maker was displayed on my kitchen counter. Every morning I would brew a nice pot of coffee. One day, without warning, the handle breaks off. So I call Cuisinart. No problem, they say, we will send you another coffee pot. Good! But when the pot came it had a white handle, I had a pot with a black handle. Ring,ring,ring, I call back. You sent me the wrong colored coffee pot, I tell them, no problem, they say again, we will send you the right one. So again, good. This time the right color handle was sent. Hooray! Well that celebration ended quickly.
This darn coffee maker now begins to brew coffee all over my kitchen counter. At first I thought it was me, I made a mistake or something, but I quickly realized it was not me it was the coffee maker. Of course I just kept brewing in it, and watching it with a careful eye. Then one morning it just stopped working. Time to buy a new one.
So I order another one, from JC Penny catalog, of course another Cuisinart, but this time with a glass coffee pot. I wanted a change. I was so excited, a new coffee pot on my kitichen counter. This is good, real good. Was it?
Eight months from purchase and guess what, coffee maker stopped working. WHAT! This is ridicoulous. Now I have to call Cuisinart and tell them that the coffee maker just stopped working. I have no doubt that they will send me another coffee maker. Cuisinart is good like that. But, my questions is how long does a coffee maker last? And what brand is worth buying?
Actually, I am a tea person, but drink coffee only in the morning after my tea. Oh, and you know my girlfriend that I copied from, she still has that same coffee pot, experienced no problems with it. I guess it is just me.
The coffee maker just knows that I am a tea loving person.
