Cruised the offerings at Bed, Bath & Beyond today, figure I am going to drop eighty to one hundred bucks. Like the idea of programmable, don't really think I need a carafe. Cuisinart? Krups? Mr. Coffee? Braun? DeLonghi? Last discussion I could find here seemed to favor the Krups, indicating it heats water hotter, but that refers to models from some time ago.
