A couple years ago I was looking for a good, inexpensive coffeemaker for my home. After checking reviews online and through consumer reports, I decided to buy Micheal Graves Automatic drip coffeemaker. It was highly rated in consumer reports and through consumer reviews. I have been very pleased with it and after 2 years of daily use, we haven't had any problems. The design of the coffeemaker is great, it is visually pleasing and it functions well too. I really like that the water holder completely removes for easy filling and cleaning. You can fill it up at night and then program the coffeemaker to have your coffee ready to go in the morning. There are many other great features too, including a flavor boost option that really enhances the flavor of your coffee. Overall, I would say that this is a great coffeemaker at a very reasonable price. It is definately something that I would and have recommended to my friends and family.
