Got my Mom a new coffee maker these - she loves it.....a Black & Decker of all things.
these= this Christmas
Not as hot as Micky D’s, but hot enough. I put a ton of half n’ half in mine so it doesn’t stay hot for long! lol! I followed the directions and ran water through it three times before using it. I was afraid it would have the plastic-y taste that some new appliances have, but it did not. We’re very happy with it! Of course, we haven’t used the griddle or oven yet. This weekend, we’ll try it.
