Zojirushi EC-BD15 Fresh Brew - Coffee Maker

The first thing that you notice about this coffee maker is the striking design. The Zojirushi stainless steel, shinny black base and simple design looks good in any kitchen. This machine is an excellent combination of pleasing aesthetics and sensible functionality.

The stylish carafe made of brushed steel is cool to touch and the water level display at the base is easy to read.

The difference between a good and a bad coffee maker is that a good coffee maker can maintain a consistent internal temperature making every cup perfect, every time. With cheap coffee makers the temperature can fluctuate changing the experience for the user. The Zojirushi does deliver a consistently good cup of coffee.

The Zojirushi has a large capacity of about 10 cups. It's ideal for use in a office or large kitchen. The size of the device can however be a drawback for some. It is also pretty tall and that can be an issue if you have shallow counters. The machine's measurements are 15 by 12 by 9 inches.

The carafe does not have have a glass liner. This detail makes the carafe pretty reliable as the glass liners are more susceptible to breaking. The programmable timer is also very easy to use. The thermal carafe keeps the coffee hot all day.

Lots of people don't like the burnt flavor of coffee when it sits in a glass pot over a heating element. To stop this from happening, coffee shops often brew right into large thermal pot to keep the coffee warm without overcooking it. The Zojirushi Fresh Brew does it in the same way, but in smaller batches.

Overall an excellent product for the coffee lovers everywhere.
