What People Are Saying:

The Zojirushi Fresh Brew EC-BD15 was called the "Best Budget Thermal Carafe Coffeemaker" by "Overall, the Zojirushi is the best bet in its price range if you're looking for a thermal-carafe coffee maker. If you aren't determined to buy a thermal carafe model, you can find a better-rated automatic-drip coffee maker in the Cuisinart Brew Central DCC-122," notes. On Amazon, the 960 posted user reviews are overwhelmingly positive, with more than 600 users posting 4- and 5-star reviews. Many user reviews said the Zojirushi Fresh Brew made an amazing cup of coffee. A limited number of consumers mentioned problems including problems with heating water to brew the coffee. A few people -- even those who praise the coffeemaker -- said the neck of the carafe makes it difficult to clean.
