I have had a Cuisinart Grind-and-Brew (pictured) since the mid 90’s. It has served me well, but I fear that like my recently dead carpet steamer from that same era, it is on its last legs. Recently, I arrive to set it up to find it is “off” even though it is plugged in and should be showing the time. This morning, I set it up to brew and at some point after it was done it shut itself down in such a way that the heating element was off and the display was showing “18:88.” I get lukewarm coffee today. Yeay.
I have come to believe that the internet (and specifically, the subset of the internet I like to call “my internet friends”) is very opinionated on grind-and-brews. I have heard many of you say lots of positive things about ones with a burr grinder.
So, does anyone have any suggestions? The one I have is 10 cups, but I technically never make more than 6 or 8 (and even those amounts are rare.)
