Competition among cold coffee products is heating up just in time for summer. KitchenAid has entered the arena with its new $130 Cold Brew Coffee Maker. What sets the gadget apart from similar devices is that it's constructed from premium glass and steel materials instead of basic plastic.
Also thoughtful is the brewer's compact size designed to squeeze into tight spots in your refrigerator. The coffee maker sports a convenient handle too, so hopefully you'll be able to transport it without much trouble between the fridge and kitchen countertops.
Despite not taking up much space compared to traditional cold brew coffee makers such as the Toddy, the Filtron or even the Oxo, the KitchenAid Cold Brew still manages to make large 28-ounce batches of coffee concentrate. I appreciate as well that there's a spout and valve to help dispensing its contents a little easier.
