Looking for a Zojirushi Coffee Maker?

Chances are that if you’ve been in the market recently for a small coffee pot, then you’ve become somewhat familiar with the Zojirushi name. Although the company only produces two different models of automatic drip coffee makers, each has been highly reviewed by coffee lovers from around the world. The two machines, the Fresh Brew EC-BD15 and the Zutto, are both known for their superior build quality and for their ability to brew great coffee. Of course, having just 2 machines to choose from doesn’t necessarily make the ultimate decision any easier. Although most people still have questions about which machine might be better for their individual situation, the following article will hopefully set the record straight so that you can get on to more important things – like brewing coffee!

When looking at the two Zojirushi coffee maker options that are available, there is one clear distinction between the two, which has to do with serving size. The Fresh Brew is designed to brew up to 12 cups at a time and features a vacuum sealed thermal carafe, while the Zutto is designed to brew just 5 cups, making it the obvious choice for smaller crowds. Although the thermal carafe option might make the Fresh Brew a clear winner on the surface, it’s important to note that a carafe is not necessarily required when brewing for a smaller crowd. In fact, it’s not even necessary with a larger capacity machine, as one can simply brew a smaller pot. There are some other features though that might make the Fresh Brew a more attractive option including the ability to program the machine to brew automatically at a later start date and the auto shut-off feature.

For a more complete breakdown of the two machines you should head online where you can view both of them side by side on sites like Amazon. In addition to reading what the manufacturer has to say about these machines, you can also read what others have to say about their performance. While not all of the reviews are positive, a large majority are, which is a testament to just how good these machines are.
