Our list touches on a few basic coffee pots as well as some high-end options that can brew hot or cold coffee in minutes. If you do the math, any one of these options is far more affordable than a daily trip to Starbucks. We’ve arranged our picks by price so it’s easy to stick to a budget.
Best coffee maker deals:
Editor’s note: We will update our list of the best coffee maker deals as new sales launch.
Mr. Coffee 5-Cup
Fancy coffee makers are great, but sometimes you just need a hot pot of black coffee. That’s exactly what the Mr. Coffee 5-Cup can do — make enough to last a workday with no extras or frills. There are no real bells or whistles, but you can brew now or program your coffee for later. You can also pick up the Mr. Coffee five cup coffee maker in either slate or black.
Durable Austrian engineering doesn’t have to come at a high price. Take the Mueller Ultra, for example — you can program it for strength and time, and a permanent filter helps to save money and eliminate paper waste. Mueller’s Ultra coffee pot stays on and hot for two hours which is perfect for getting your morning started. When you have to unplug the coffee maker, the cord retracts to stay safely out of the way.
It’s impossible to make a list of coffee makers without mentioning Keurig. The single-cup giant has created a number of convenient coffee makers with a variety of K-Cups to choose from. The K-Slim has a 46-ounce capacity so you can make four or five cups before you find yourself refilling the reservoir. At just five inches wide, the K-Slim packs all of the functionality of larger brewers yet fits just about anywhere.
Mr. Coffee Optimal Brew 10 Cup
Mr. Coffee’s Optimal Brew makes a simple carafe with a large 10 cup capacity. It uses the Grab a Cup function to automatically pause if you remove the carafe to pour a cup during the brewing cycle. Both the water reservoir and the reusable filter basket are removable for easy refilling and cleaning.
Cuisinart Perfectemp 14 Cup
If you have those days where there’s just not enough coffee in the world, the Cuisinart Perfectemp might be your savior. With a massive 14 cup capacity, there should be plenty of coffee for even the worst of Zoom meetings. While it doesn’t offer much in the way of smart features, the Perfectemp is easy to program for a reliable carafe every morning at regular or bold strength.
Ninja CE251 12 Cup
Though it’s not as fancy as our later Ninja pick, the Ninja CE251 is a stylish way to make a full 12-cup carafe quickly. Just refill the removable water reservoir, set your timer, and wake up to a fresh pot of coffee. You can set the CE251 to brew either classic or rich strengths, and an adjustable warming plate keeps your brew hot and ready for up to four hours.
Cuisinart DCC 3000
The Cuisinart DCC 3000 isn’t exactly a single-serve pod coffee maker, but it doesn’t brew an entire pot at once either. Instead, you fill it with coffee and water, and the DCC 3000 only brews when you want a cup. There’s no carafe, so you can place a standard mug or a travel mug directly into the coffee maker. A handy fuel gauge shows you how many cups are left to brew so that you can refill and stay caffeinated easily.
Many people turn to Keurig for a single-serve cup of coffee, but what if you want to turn that K-Cup into a latte? That’s where the Keurig K-Cafe comes in — it combines a K-Cup brewer and milk frother for smooth foam in a hurry. The K-Cafe has a 60-ounce capacity, so you should be able to brew six cups before you have to refill. It comes in a luxurious nickel finish that will look right at home just about anywhere.
Ninja Hot and Cold Brewed System
The final option on the list of the best coffee maker deals is a true all-in-one powerhouse. Ninja’s Hot and Cold Brewed System allows you to brew six different sizes, from a cup to a carafe, and five different styles. You can brew classic, rich, specialty, over ice, and cold brew, and the Ninja handles both coffee and tea with ease. It even includes special tea and coffee baskets that can be washed out and reused in minutes.
That just about does it for our list of the best coffee maker deals. We’ll pour ourselves yet another cup while you shop. Happy sipping!
