My proctor-silex coffee maker gets me going every morning.
It's very basic but reliable. I drink 3 of the 12 cups it's capable of making everyday.
There's no automatic timer or clock. But that's okay because I don't need those.
It is a little noisy while brewing. But that doesn't bother me either.
This coffee maker is very easy to use and there should be no problems. Make sure the cover is completely closed after pouring in your water and replacing your brew basket or the coffee will not filter out.
The price was great for the size and amount of coffee it'll produce.
Regardless of all the little imperfections or the lack of unneeded and fancy gadgets, it gets the job done.
