my coffee maker broke in time for holiday shopping!

I have a Cuisinart Filter Brew coffee maker. The drip attachment and spring broke off the filter basket. Otherwise the coffee maker itself still works. Can't find a replacement filter basket in regular retail stores. Found a replacement basket online for like $20, totally not worth it (right?). I've had my coffee maker for a few years now.

So I'm in search for a new one. Any suggestions. I don't want to spend over $100 if possible. There's so many brands on sale at the moment. I'm not picky. But I've had experiences with cheaper models that would spew out the coffee all over the counter, hardly in the carafe.

I've read the recent post on the grind and brew models. don't need that, i have a separate grinder already. Any views on the models that brew coffee and heat only what's dispense like 1 cup at a time, pod coffee brewers, french press, etc.
