I am amazed at how crappy the newer coffee makers are. I'm about to get rid of a 2 year old Cuisinart model that just had its bottom rust out. Left a big rust stain on the counter. Shite.
So I go to Amazon and start searching. Most units have a large share of terrible reviews. Apparently the one I'm getting rid of has the habit of catching fire. Others just stop working at a significant rate...and these aren't cheapo models either.
