Other models are designed in a way that they can be used on a burner stove in case of power outage or for areas without electric outlet.
Coffee-makers with unbreakable parts are usually a good option, more so when on the road. In addition, coffee machines with the capability to supply plain hot water on demand for preparing other beverages are also a great option.
