And when you come to think of it, there is a lesson to be learned from this particular product- keeping things real, without pretensions.
With its simple and unassuming appearance this drip coffee maker still stands out because simple as it is, it sure has a lot of great features to boast of.
The GE coffee maker model 169165 can brew up to twelve 5-ounce cups of coffee, perfect for a whole family of coffee drinkers or a bunch of friends and visitors.

Now, if your family is really big or you have lots of visitors often, might as well consider buying a dual coffee maker. Going back, the GE coffee maker has a permanent coffee filter.
No more buying, using then throwing disposable paper filters. It not only saves you money, it’s good for the environment, too. Just make sure to properly wash the permanent coffee filter from time to time.
Another great feature is the built-in water filter that makes use of charcoal as a filtering agent. Located inside the water reservoir, it effectively cleans your water as it is brewing for better tasting coffee.
Lastly, the automatic cleaning cycle makes washing a very easy task. Simply fill the coffee maker with either vinegar or cleaner and push the button. After the cleaning cycle is through, repeat another cycle with just clean water to rinse.
Other features include a timer- for those mornings that you want to wake up and your coffee is already waiting for you hot and fresh. An automatic shut-off system- for those times you’re enjoying your coffee so much you forget to turn it off.
There is also a "time since brew" readout that comes in a pretty blue digital display-haven’t really very figured out what is it for but it sure is nice to look at and a 1-4 cup brew selector- so you can brew exactly just enough for your coffee drinking needs.
For the sake of canvassing and comparison, you can check out other brands like the Cuisinart coffee maker or Zojirushi coffee maker and lots more others.
But I doubt if you could find one that is as great as this GE coffee maker. Overall, the coffee that it makes tastes amazing, much like the quality that a vacuum coffee maker produce-without the complexities of course!
