What makes a good quality coffee maker?
To me, it starts with the materials that are used in making the coffee maker, as well as where it’s manufactured.
Coffee makers that use high quality materials like glass and stainless steel receive higher marks in the quality department because materials like these not only retain heat better, but they are also safer because they are less prone to leach harmful chemicals.
Where the coffee maker is manufactured is also very important. Coffee makers that are manufactured outside of China tend to rate higher in the quality department. Coffee makers that are made by hand or inspected with special care will also earn higher marks.
BPA free plastics are another important factor in the overall quality score.
Finally, a coffee maker with fewer components and a simpler design will always beat out the opposite type when it comes to assessing quality. This is because the fewer moving parts, the less likely it is that something will go wrong with the coffee maker in the long run.
