MY QUISINART DRIP COFFEE MACHINE DIED
   
  I am looking for a drip coffee pot in the $50 $60 range.
  Would rather have an esspresso machine but can
  not afford it right now.
   
  Wondering if anybody has any recommendations.
   
  I have looked at he Mr. Coffee's but do not know if
  they are quality. A link to the one I was looking at
  is below and is at Costco for $55.

Aaron,
First, go to your local (if you have them) KMart and Sears and see if
they have any Presto Scandinavians left.  If they do, buy as many as
you can afford because they are relatively inexpensive ($20 - $30),
but they brew excellent coffee because they brew at the proper
temperature which is between 195 - 205F.  Buy two or more if you can
because their longevity was sometimes suspect.
I recently saw a Melitta (I think) Drip Brewer at the local grocery
store that touted proper brewing temperature (200F range) for $30, but
I know nothing about it.  I have yet to meet a Mr. Coffee that can get
up to proper brewing temperature without having to do some work, but
maybe they have changed since I last used / bought one.
Hope this helps ...
Eddie

The main problem(s) with majority of drip brewers, especially common
inexpensive ones, is low brewing temp and poor water dispersion. Both
problems can be remedied inexpensively via pour over, though not as
convenient.
I've heard that the freebie brewers offered by the likes of Gevalia all the
time are decent but have no personal experience with them. Of course you
have to get some of their not so great pre-roasted beans and then go through
the hassle of cancelling automatic order for more beans...

Aaron I have a Mr. Coffee similar to the one you linked to, it works great
as a pour over.  I don't even plug the thing in, I just lift up the lid put
the coffee in a Swiss Gold filter and I use a cordless kettle to pour over.
But Eddie and Mike are right, if you use it as an autodrip it won't get to
the proper temp.  I measured mine at about 165F.  Hope this helps.

I have a Technivorm.  The way it is built, my guess is it is the last coffee
brewer I will ever have to buy.  I took the bottom off to check "under the
hood."  All high quality extra heavy duty goodies in there.  Why go through
6 to 8 $30-$40 machines that are suspect at best getting things to the right
tempature?   In MNSHO, good drip coffee gives you a whole different coffee
experience than espresso, vac pot or Moka pot.  I enjoy a good brewed
coffee.  If you do too, make the investment in a Technivorm.

Well, not everybody *can* make that kind of investment.  Before I got  
my Technivorm I got some pretty good brew out of a 10-c. Starbuck's  
Barista Aroma, originally $129 but sometimes on sale for as little as  
$60--check your local Starbucks for periodic clearance sales.  I  
preheated the carafe for 10 min. with boiling water, then poured it  
out and brewed right into it.  Never had enough left over for a pot  
to cool off.  It's not a Technivorm, but of all the other drip  
machines I've tried (including Bunn, Braun, Krups and Mr. Coffee), it  
comes closest to making a great cup.

Did your Quisinart do a good job ?
Check it out- The likely failure mode is: It's totally dead. If so, that
makes it an easy fix. It won't turn on- that means the turner-on-er [Switch=
]
is bad.
Your $3.00 digital VOM should read about 10 (±) ohms across the two flat
plug blades with the machine turned on and unplugged. If you don't unplug
it, difficult to measure at the plug- Duh.
If you don't feel like messing with it and you need a fix in the morning,
just make with the teapot and turn it into the Ultimate Manual Pourover.
Disclaimer: In dealing with hot utensils and liquids, is easy to Burn
Oneself... Don't.
Damn the machine- you be the coffeemaker. Just pour hot water into the
filterbasket like the matcheen would.
Or- if you have a 1qt Mason jar, use it like a Cowboy coffee pot. Pour hot
water over the grounds, stir it and let it sit for a couple of minutes.
Temperature will be dropping like a rock, so you might need to Zing it in
the Microwave for a few seconds- 1 revolution on the lazy Susan.
After two minutes, decant the Cowboy jar through the filter basket into you=
r
carafe.

Mike in right about Gevalia.  Where as I don't like their coffee (big 
surprise), I did take them up on a recent offer for 1 lb of coffee 
and coffee pot for $10 shipping.  I too them up on the offer because 
the drip coffee pot in question is a Cuisinart Brew Central 
repackaged for them.
I would suggest that route.  After exhaustive (exhausting?) research, 
I went with the BC because I couldn't afford the TV and no other 
consistently hit the proper brew temperature.

i agree. the *$ line of brewers (no longer in production except the 
solo-a single serve 16oz tumbler model-i have and love the solo, but you 
can get a really good deal on the others if you can find them-don't get 
the 8-cup as that was recalled) are really good quality, good looking 
(stainless), and brew temp is at least 195. i have to leave the lid off 
my solo for a few minutes or pour it into a room-temp ceramic mug to be 
able to drink it. also, the solo pump draws small amounts at a time so 
it doesn't overflow or make a weak small batch (a BIG problem w/ Bunn 
brewers).

It is "not as convenient."
Roasting your own coffee isn't convenient either, but you do it. If you have
an Agent Orange flare-up and want convenient all of a sudden, McDonald's has
Premium McDreck that should be pretty good. Night shift leaves things pretty
clean before they  punch out, so Early = "Good."
Just like the Shack has answers and batteries, 7-11 has a good coffee bar.
Just grind enough of your homeroast to fill a couple of baby food jars, take
'em over to 7-11 and brew a pot for yourself. They also sell a junior mop
bucket-sized coffee mug that will hold a full pot of coffee, so you won't
have to leave any Nectar for the drive-by Coffee Hoons.
Or you could cut a deal with them- no charge for the mop bucket, and you'll
come in on Friday mornings and brew three extra pots for the Coffee Hoons.
Then you'll really have them hooked- the Hoons will be screaming for the
good coffee and may even stay parked at the gas pumps until they get it. If
you didn't want to sell Custom Roasted Coffee to 7-11 in baby food jars, it
could get really inconvenient real fast...

   Specifically Bunn Commercial Coffee Brewer *Model #CWTF20, 120 volt 
  A picture of what I had in mind is attached. My understanding is that they heat the water to 200 degrees have a spray for the water but they only take about 4 to 5 minutes to brew 10 cups???

Ray that was awesome, however a spew alert was in order.  Back to my
Technivorm recommendation.  I saved for almost 2 years in the coffee kitty
to buy mine.  One should view our equipment as an investment.  If you really
enjoy brewed coffee, save for the best.  In the long run, a Technivorm will
be cheaper and brew you better coffee than any other brewer.  That said, I
spent those two years doing the pour-over method.  An electric kettle and a
pour-over into a good-will purchased carafe isn't that bad of a deal.  Tom
has some good pour-over options.  A Chemex setup isn't a bad way to to go
either.  Actually, Alchemist John gave me an old Chemex that broke on me
cause it was in a fire.  I am using up the Chemex filters in my Technivorm,
so I guess the question could be asked, "Is it Technirvorm or Chemex?"

I returned the Bunn after three weeks because...
 The hot water goes by too quick
 The basket is too small to overload and make up for the fast flush
 There is no swissgold filter available for the Bunn
 Fast Hot THIN coffee doesn't do it for me
 My Melitta Clarity did far better
 Presto Scandinavian is still out there
 Technivorm offers the features without these downsides

I believe I can claim to have coined a new phrase!  You just used "Coffee
Hoon" thee times in the same conversation!  
At last, I've made an impact on society and I can rest in peace!  ;-)

It is "not as convenient." 
Roasting your own coffee isn't convenient either, but you do it. If you have
an Agent Orange flare-up and want convenient all of a sudden, McDonald's has
Premium McDreck that should be pretty good. Night shift leaves things pretty
clean before they  punch out, so Early = "Good." 
Just like the Shack has answers and batteries, 7-11 has a good coffee bar.
Just grind enough of your homeroast to fill a couple of baby food jars, take
'em over to 7-11 and brew a pot for yourself. They also sell a junior mop
bucket-sized coffee mug that will hold a full pot of coffee, so you won't
have to leave any Nectar for the drive-by Coffee Hoons. 
Or you could cut a deal with them- no charge for the mop bucket, and you'll
come in on Friday mornings and brew three extra pots for the Coffee Hoons.
Then you'll really have them hooked- the Hoons will be screaming for the
good coffee and may even stay parked at the gas pumps until they get it. If
you didn't want to sell Custom Roasted Coffee to 7-11 in baby food jars, it
could get really inconvenient real fast...
