As the subject says.

I make maybe a pot a day. Would like a clock and the ability to set it to brew at a certain time. That's it. No need for an on-board grinder, I've already got that covered. No frothing, no steaming, no sprinkles, no need to tell me when it's time to run a cleaning cycle, just make a pot of black coffee.

I'd probably prefer a glass carafe. The thermal carafes that I've seen & used have smaller volumes.

I've been buying in the $40 - $60 US range, a KitchenAid and a few different Mr. Coffee models, and none of the last 4 have made it past a year or two.

The $10 Rival coffeemaker that I got at Walmart 10 years ago is still working fine, but it has no clock.

Thanks for any suggestions you can offer.

I've had good luck with Krups drip coffeemakers. One lasted 10 years before the auto shutoff went bad. Nice styling and performance. You can get decent buys on Amazon and eBay.

After going through several of those cheap mr. coffee type makers, I inherited my Mom's old General 12 cup electric stainless steel peculator when she passed back in 2014. I could never go back to a mr. Coffee again and IMO percolated coffee tastes so much better. Granted, it takes about a minute per cup, but since I am retired, time is a non factor and it is worth the wait. I do not need a clock a timer or a computer on my coffee maker, I just simply ask that it makes a good cup of coffee and it does.It does have a weak or strong setting and I just leave it on strong all of the time.

This one is a bit more but worth it. Has a charcoal water filter, clock and pretty straightforward.
My last one lasted 6 years with daily use.
It brews good coffee.

It comes with a 3 year warranty as well.

All of the consumer level ones are identical right? My current GE 12 cup has all the features you want and I paid $20 for it at WalMart. Pretty sure it is rebranded and sold under various other brands because nothing about it is proprietary. The auto-on feature is pretty simple and works reliably, but I wish these things had a battery back up because they lose the time/settings during power outages.

Yes to the percolator. My oldest sister got my mom's Kenmore percolator. It makes great coffee, and yes, it tastes better than drip.

I second Cuisiart and being in IL, you may be able to find this one at a Menards if you have one nearby. https://www.menards.com/main/appliances/...3888&ipos=2

Mom is on her second one, and currently has this model. The only reason she needed a replacement is because she cracked the carafe and a new carafe was about half the cost of a new coffee maker. Word of warning though, this brews hot so be careful with the first couple of sips right after you pour a cup. Coffee2

Also, while this one has a cleaning cycle, with regular use of the charcoal filter, we've never had the indicator light come on for either this unit or its predecessor.

Was on clearance at WM for 64. The reviews scared me away. Seems almost disposable. It also can overheat and melt!

My Mr Coffee has got to be over 30 years old. I've had to repair the silicone hose inside it once. Clock runs fast. But no way would I replace it with something that will have the electronics blow out with a thunderstorm.

Dittos on the percolator. If you are using good coffee to begin with then this is the way to go. Farberware used to make a good one. Stick with stainless steel.

I grew up on percolated stove top coffee. The electric ones are much better.

I hear you re electric perc coffee.

An old Corningware (white ceramic) tall perc IS better in my opinion but you must watch the heat....NOT TOO HIGH.

I just prefer glass (or ceramic) to metal. Just me, and all that.

Me too on the percolator. Picked up a couple like nre ones at antique stores. Coffee is much better flavor and stays hot for 4-5 hours without burnt taste. Paper filters from Amazon keeps the grounds where they belong.
