My Mr. Coffee died of hardening of it's single artery. I got now the wife's older
procter-silex, no timers on either one, I herd about them and fires back in the
80's so I'm chicken of them forever now....

I run vinegar through them with each use now to keep calcium from building up.
The old one leaked and the calcium build up made it take 40 minutes to make
a single pot of coffee...... Built up over time so it was not noticeable

But now at about 4 minutes to make a pot, wow how did I not notice it

I drink at least four cups and at times, seven cups a day. I have a large mug and keep refilling it. I have a commercial grade Mr. Coffee, four cup with auto shutoff and even a grounding line cord, in like new condition. There was a large amount of them donated to the thrift, when the local Motor Inn, must've switched to Keurigs.
The things, literally flew off the shelf for $2.99 each, I bought two.
My home has extremely hard water, furnished by a community well. I run my coffee water through a Brita pitcher to take out most of the hardness.
