I have a Capresso mt500 that I'm very happy with. The only complaint is that the lid can be a pain to get on and off. The threads can be fussy...
I'm buying a coffee maker as a gift and think it'll be either the Zojirushi or a Cuisinart Brew Central, based on conversations here and Amazon reviews etc. Have never used either, though, and wonder if those of you who have would clue me in.
Is there anything else I should know about these units?
