Three Questions You Should Ask Before Buying A Built In Coffee Maker!

Aug 17, 2007
Built in coffee makers are becoming increasingly popular with home owners looking at ways of maximising bench space in their homes. When coffee makers were first becoming part of the home landscape, just having one would have made an impression on friends and family however, it seems like we are entering a new phase.

Built in coffee makers certainly look great as part of the overall look and feel of a home's kitchen and living areas however, cost will certainly be a factor for many people. You could expect to be set back several thousand dollars for a top of the range unit fully installed but you need to think sensibly and economically before going to this level.

Before You Buy

These are some of the questions you need to ask yourself before shopping for a built in unit:

- Will the coffee maker be in regular use?
- Are you a big entertainter?
- Or, are you a regular coffee drinker and would and expensive built in unit be a viable option at this stage?

The Advantages

Now, if you answered yes to at least two of these questions and are in a position to afford the more expensive units, then it looks like you are in the market for a built in coffee maker. Let's take a look at the advantages, ignoring cost:

- A built in coffee maker will clear up clutter on your kitchen bench
- You don't have to add water each time you use it because the unit is plumbed straight into your house supply
- Adds value and enhances appearance of the home and you will also be making a statement on design

How Much Can You Expect To Pay?

While the cost can range up to several thousand dollars, built in coffee makers can be picked up for as low as $440.00. Brew Express now produce a built in the wall drip coffee maker with some impressive features including programmable timer and clock, pause and serve and adjustable cup selector.

At the other end of the spectrum, Miele, which was responsible for introducing the world's first built in system has a range of quality and adaptable units which cost anywhere from $700 and upwards. The definite advantage of the more expensive machines include the extra features such as a self filling ability, while many models come with extra plug outlets for greater convenience.

A built in coffee maker will definitely give your home some added appeal but as mentioned earlier, you need to be sure it's what you need. Shop around and compare prices and features and then select the machine that looks suited to your needs.
