You will pay more for this coffee maker but you will be getting more. Brews that perfect cup of coffee time and time again which will please anybody but the added bonus is the insulated pot that holds the finished coffee after the brewing cycle has ended. After the brewing cycle has finished the coffee maker automatically shuts off so there are never any worries about accidently leaving home with the coffee maker still on. The coffee stays hot for hours in the attractive insulated pot so there is no need for a warmer plate on this system. A coffee brewer you'll love after your first use.
