Thank you. It's the one I'm looking for. Haven't found any of the popular RV Supply stores that carry it yet. But with the model name & # now, I should be able to track one down easily. Thanks again

We've been looking for a new coffee maker for a couple years now to replace the one we've been using. Yesterday we found and purchased a new one from Sears. It's a Delonghi all front load 12 cup maker. We think it's going to be just right for us. We orignally were hoping to find an (old style cube shaped) under the cabinet mounted maker like the Contoure but they are currently not available in our area. We were going to have it set on the counter since we only have 18" between the countertop and bottom of the upper cabinets anyway. The neat thing about the Delonghi is that you load it with coffee and water without having to move it out from underneath the cabinet. The coffee filter and water fill compartment are together in a hinged upper compartment that swings out from underneath the cabinet without moving the coffee maker. The water flows towards the back of the maker and into the holding tank through a trough. It's a simple idea that works great, I'm suprised more makers aren't made this way. It even has coffee cup storage tray built into the top of the machine and our cups fit nicely even under the cabinet. It's small footprint allows it to sit on our countertop between the back corner of our sink and the exterior wall, getting the coffee maker out of the way and freeing up countertop space previously occupied by our old coffee maker,and I felt the bottom of the maker after running it twice in a row to clean it before making coffee and the bottom of the maker was just warm but not hot to the touch so no concerns about damaging the countertop. And at $40.00 on sale the price was right!

If you can find a local counter top installer they will have the tools necessary to repair the damage. In this slower economy they might like the work and could be reasonably priced.

We have a Cuisinart coffee maker with a stainless steel thermal carafe. This type of coffee maker does not have a heating element in the base; the carafe retains the heat without need for one. This means that the bottom of the coffee maker always remains cool.

The problem we've found with ss carafes is that it's hard to find a true 12 cupper and the ones we found had to be pulled out from under the upper cabinet in order to load it, thus using up countertop space. The Delonghi that we found doesn't get hot on the bottom, is a 12 cupper, and can be loaded without pulling it out from under the cabinet, so problem solved.
