One example of a top-rated and inexpensive coffee maker is the Kitchen Selectives CM-688. As of February 2015, this product is listed on Amazon.com for $9.99 before shipping.
The Kitchen Selectives CM-688 has a low cost and high rating, but it only brews a single cup of coffee at a time. The Mr. Coffee BVMC-SJX33GT can brew up to 12 cups and is programmable. However, it is listed on Amazon at a slightly higher cost of $24.92 before shipping, as of February 2015.
Cost is only one factor that goes into choosing the best coffee maker for a household. Other factors include serving capacity, facets and brand.
