Coffee makers require minimal cleanup, but the task can become quite a hassle with some models. Aside from the pot, which requires daily maintenance, some machines need to be cleaned internally on occasion where coffee grounds or moisture accumulate. Several models have a self-clean feature included for this purpose.
Opinions show that price is related to easy cleanup: the more expensive products are harder to clean than the cheaper products. Indeed, most of the top rated products in this category cost well below $100.
