KitchenAid Coffee Makers
KitchenAid makes some very durable products and have excellent customer service. I would recommend any item Kitchen Aid makes. That said, I could only find one coffee maker still in production.
KitchenAid started out in 1908 in Troy, Ohio making breadmixers. However, it wasn't till 1919 that the KitchenAid brand was born and kept growing. In 1986, KitchenAid made a full range of home appliances, like fridges and stoves. Currently, the KitchenAid Stand Mixer is the same today as it was in 1919. The Smithsonian Institute has one to represent “American Icon” in their Washington Museum.
