Firstly, these won’t make the best coffee in the world. So are you still looking for the best coffee maker under $100 in 2021? If yes then continue scrolling through what we have recommended below starting with our top pick, Mr. Coffee Programmable 12-Cup Coffee Maker.
Its brew time of 10 minutes, 30 seconds is fast for a 12-cup, and the burner shuts off after two hours for safety. Its programmability is a great added bonus for those who, like me, are incapable of making morning coffee without having a coffee first. If you are making coffee for multiple people, this is the machine for you.
- It’s made out of plastic
- Make time is above 10 minutes – that’s a deal-breaker for some people
- Not very customizable.
My second pick comes from the same manufacturer but at a few dollars higher than my top pick. The Mr. Coffee Easy Measure is as simple as it gets without sacrificing reliability and flavor. One user says, “the machine makes solid coffee, smooth and well balanced.”
- The easy measure Coffee maker also improves taste using a 2-step advanced water filtration system to reduce impurities in water.
- An indicator on the base tells you, in half-hour increments, how long it’s been since your coffee was brewed.
- Has a 4-hour freshness indicator so you can avoid stale Coffee.
- Does not come with the Gold Tone Reusable Coffee Filter.
- Tends to have a short life span
- The coffee maker overflows when 12 cups of coffee are made.
The large-capacity carafe is double-walled and vacuum-sealed to keep your coffee at optimal drinking temperature for hours.
This coffee machine has what is called the small-batch prep option that allows you to prepare 1-4 cups of coffee allowing you a stronger much smoother cup of coffee. Better yet, the carafe spout is designed to prevent spills and drips while pouring.
I am not a pro coffee person, but the BLACK+DECKER 12-Cup Thermal Coffeemaker made it last for some important reasons.
- At times the coffee would not flow through into the pot and would run over on the counter & floor because of the lid flow valve.
- It turns itself after 2 hours which means cold coffee afterward
But for this price tag? It is a great product to have without breaking the bank.
