There are two kinds of coffee makers in the market. Cuisinart is one of the most popular ones, and Crux is a new entrant on the market. They are in the same category; however, there are quite a few differences in the features. Which, then, is the best coffee maker? Let us find out in this blog post.
Literally millions of words have been written about coffee, in newspapers, magazines and blog posts. But, few people know how to make a good cup of coffee. When it comes to coffee there are purists and then there are people who want a quick cup of Joe.
Sifting through the choices to make an informed decision can be challenging. So, we decided to compare two of the most popular coffee makers on the market: the Cuisinart coffee maker and the Crux Coffee System
Cruze Coffee Maker
|Carafe Type||Glass Carafe|
|Features||Brew and pause function|
The 1-4 cup setting on our coffee maker is great if you just want to make a small pot, or want to try out different flavors. The cup-size setting will automatically determine how much water to use depending on how many cups you’re making. If you’re only making one mug, it will fill the water chamber halfway; if it thinks that two mugs are being made, it will fill all of it with water, and so on and so forth.
The coffee maker has a programmable clock with an auto shut-off feature. The clock can be programmed to brew coffee at a certain time. The auto shut-off feature turns off the power automatically when your coffee is ready, which +it energy efficient as well.
In order to get a consistent cup of coffee from one cup to another, you want to make sure that your water is flowing through your grounds at a consistent rate. That’s why it’s important for every pour-over brewer to come with a removable brew basket. The Brew Basket allows you to regulate how fast or slow water flows through your grounds, allowing you more control over consistency. On top of all that, it makes cleaning simple because there are fewer parts and places for the coffee residue to hideout! That way you can spend less time cleaning and more time tasting great cups.
The removable water reservoir is one of my favorite features. It’s great because I no longer have to wake up in the middle of night, trying to not spill a drop as I head over to refill my machine. I simply fill it up before bed, and then brew as usual in the morning. The reservoir holds enough water for at least 8 cups, so it’s more than enough for me. Plus, there’s an indicator right on top to tell you how much is left inside!
Digital Display and Controls
The digital display and controls for your coffee maker make it easy to choose your favorite brewing type (such as espresso, regular coffee, or decaf) and strength settings. You can also set a timer so that you have freshly brewed coffee waiting for you in the morning. Aroma Plus Feature: Enjoy fresh-brewed coffee with just one touch!

Once you’ve decided which type of coffee maker will best suit your needs, it’s time to determine what else you want. If you enjoy freshly ground beans and have room on your countertop, a built-in grinder is a great choice. Built-in grinders are also easy to clean and a must for busy mornings when you don’t have time for prep work. Just toss in a handful of beans and some water—and walk away while your coffee brews—when you need it most.
One of Cuisinart’s great features is its Gold Tone Filter. This filter not only makes sure that your coffee won’t get contaminated from grinds, but it also removes any metallic tastes from your brew. Even if you don’t use a gold tone filter when you brew at home, many cafes do—but for a pretty hefty price. Since you can pick up a pack of filters at your local grocery store, you can save money by using them yourself.
A carafe is a piece of glassware or pottery that holds liquids. Used primarily for serving and displaying wine, coffee, or tea, carafes also work well as water pitchers. Carafes are made in various sizes and often feature insulating sleeves that hold heat in or out depending on whether they’re intended for hot or cold drinks.
Let’s face it, no one wants to be monitoring their water level while trying to make coffee. It’s a hassle. Which is why our designers made sure that you could easily see how much water you have in your carafe with just a glance by putting dual water windows on either side of our brewers and one at the base. You won’t find another brewer like it. And if you do, they probably aren’t using stainless steel carafes (see below).
The drip coffeemaker’s included glass carafe can hold up to 12 cups of coffee, while its filter basket is constructed from paper and nylon for fast and thorough saturation. It also has a programmable timer that allows automatic shutoff after 2 hours. An adjustable auto shutoff feature makes sure you’re never waiting around by accident, and if you’re short on cleaning supplies, a rinse function gets rid of any residue left behind.
Choosing the right coffee maker is a matter of personal preference. Both coffee makers have their own pros and cons. The decision to buy one coffee maker over the other really depends on what you are looking for. If you are looking for a fresh cup of coffee every time, go for the Cuisinart coffee maker. If you are a person who is on the move and want something that is easy to use, then go for the Crux. You can purchase either one or both of these coffee makers. The choice is yours!
