What all did you use it for? If for regular coffee just get a programmable Mr. Coffee coffee maker.

Have you considered a French Press?  Makes great coffee, no electrics to break, only glass, and easily makes single cups.

We use a pour-over pot and boil water in an electric kettle. No internal machinery to break or grow scum (French press also has this advantage).

Basic bitch drip maker is about $25 brand new.  We have one, but I mostly make cold brew these days, which uses zero specialized equipment of any kind apart from coffee filters.

Thanks for the info. I tried my old pour over this morning. It was very good coffee. I am trying some cold brew iced coffee in a mason jar also. I might go without or a cheap drip if I need to make a big pot for guests.

How about an espresso pot from IKEA?

This is the only thing for making coffee we have been using at home for years.
