Mainstays makes a range of coffee makers – from a single-serve coffee maker that can use a K-Cup or a reusable filter basket for ground coffee, a five-cup coffee brewer with a removable filter basket, and a twelve-cup coffee brewer with a removable filter basket to suit various needs. The single-serve coffee maker employs a simple one-touch operation and the larger, multi-cup versions include keep warm, anti-drip, and “pause ‘n serve” functions as well as dishwasher-safe carafes. All of the Mainstays coffee makers are affordable (prices range from $8 to $20) and compact so they won’t take up much counter space nor be too bulky to store away when not in use.
