Who knew finding a coffee maker that is completely BPA free could be so hard? Let me tell you it is a challenge.
If you haven't heard about the dangers of BPA, you're probably wondering why I'm making such a deal out of it. Well, because BPA is a compound in some products, primarily plastics, that can leach out, particularly if heated. This compound has hormone like properties. It isn't good to ingest it and it can lead to long term health problems including obesity, neurological issues, cancer and demasculation. This isn't good for anyone, especially so for the testicle sporting group.
So in a urgent need to save my husband's masculinity, (just joking) I set out to replace his daily dose of BPA laden brew. After much research I have found only one traditional automatic drip coffee maker that claims to be completely BPA free. Seen here on sale at Amazon.com.
....Or you could go new wave old school and get a glass stovetop coffee siphon.
...Or take the route I did, straight back to the 70's. I purchased an electric percolator. It brews 12 cups of coffee in 12 minutes. I timed it and it was right on the money. The coffee tastes good and I dare say much better than my old 12 cup plastic programmable could brew. All the parts are stainless steel with nothing plastic touching anything going into my coffee or water. It can even brew as little as one cup at a time.
I found mine at Amazon.com and as far coffee makers go it wasn't too expense.
A side note for you Keurig users: The official statement is that K-cups are BPA free. However, the Keurig machine is not 100% BPA free. If you have a machine made after 2010 the company says that all the water system parts are BPA free. So if your machine is older than 2010, here is a good excuse to upgrade..or down grade to cheaper just as good percolator.
