I have used the basic Mr. Coffee coffeemaker by General Electric for the last several years and have been very happy with it. In fact, the last time I had to replace my coffee maker I choose the exact same model because I was so satisfied with it. The only reason I even had to replace it is due to the fact that I broke the coffee pot while washing it. The price for a new pot was so close to the price of a new machine that I decided just to buy the machine again.
It is easy to use with just a few buttons but still has a digital screen which I like. It is easy to program as well which is great for nights I am tired while getting ready for the morning. The only function that I would like is a longer warming function. I have to pop back in and turn it on sometimes while I am getting ready for work, but I have a long morning process so this might not be a problem for everyone. Overall for those that want a basic coffeemaker I would recommend the Mr. Coffee. I give it a 4.5 star rating.
