    With all the features you'd expect from a stainless steel thermal coffee maker, this very stylish brewer would be a great addition to your kitchen.

    It has a clock timer, brew and serve lid design, auto shut-off, and boasts a very large capacity 10-cup carafe. s for flavor, the Fresh Brew makes excellent coffee and the carafe kept it reasonably hot for at least three hours in the thermal carafe - that's impressive.

    There's no loss of flavor and it is not reduced to a concentrate, since...MORE there's no warming plate and the liquid does not evaporate (with a small lid on).

    Though you cannot see how much coffee is left in the thermal carafe, it's super convenient to take coffee out to the patio, car, and boat (not spill proof) or to serve at the table.

    This thermal 10-cup coffee maker has an elegant styling. Features include double wall insulation to keep your coffee hot longer, auto shut off, and cord storage. But its main attraction is an onboard grinder so you can brew your coffee right from scratch. However, this feature does come with a higher price tag, well worth it if you use it to its full potential.
