*^!! Coffee Maker
[Return to Topics]

You know, I spent good money on a coffee maker, and it was worth it, I needed a new one and it makes good coffee, but they fell down on the job when they designed the urn. Every time you pour out of it, some goes in the cup and some goes down the side of the pot and runs everywhere. The spout is defective. Have to hold the cup and the urn over the sink to keep from making a mess. Whatever happened to paying for and getting quality?

It was not cheap. It's a Black and Decker.

Buy a Braun coffee maker.
They are WORTH IT.
Black and Decker have went Downhill for the last
25 years.

Mine dribbles too, lol. I have to put down a paper towel and then set my cup on it and pour.

You should try the cheap Mr. Coffee. Only the 1st cup runs down the pot and if you hold it over the sink you don't have to get out the mop. For some unexplained reason it sometimes lets the coffee drain out the bottom of the machine instead of into the pot. Not often, and it only happens when you are in a hurry.

You're right.Cowboy coffee is the way to go!Boil water,throw some coffee in and drink straight from the pot.Percolators work well,too,but I prefer cowboy coffee.I don't like drip.

That's cowboy coffee Bob, and my father-in-law won't drink anything else.

I thought it took a week to build a good pot. What spoiled was emptying it and having yo start over.
Mmmm Good

Cindi...have you tried one of B&D's cup at atime makers...I have both but I like the cup at atime much better....

...It was not cheap. It's a Black and Decker...

I got a flash for you. Black and Decker has gone right in the terlet, quality-wise. It may not have been inexpensive, but I'll bet ya it was cheap.

Ya want quality coffee equipment, get Bunn.

Cindi    Posted 01-18-2004 at 09:07:51       [Reply]  [No Email]
Fawteen you best quit flashing your Bunns at me in public. (grin)

~Lenore    Posted 01-18-2004 at 08:25:39       [Reply]  [No Email]
Yes Bunn is good.

I bought one, liked it, paid a lot for it.
It lasted less than a year!!
Too expensive for my pocket book.

I have a Procter-silex now, have had it a couple of years and if it fails I can afford another one.
We live in a disposable society these days. So I pay what I can afford to replace, not fix, cause no one fixes anything!

had a proctor silex..

was cheap..but it did a really good job 'til the heating element quit.

But it made coffee from smaller amounts of coffee grounds. (saved me money!)

I love our Bunn coffemaker. We have to use water from the neighbor's hydrant, because our well-water is so hard and Bunns are a pain to de-lime. But it's worth the trouble. We tried going back to a regular coffee maker and just couldn't do it.

deadcarp    Posted 01-18-2004 at 06:59:21       [Reply]  [No Email]
yup, bunn units are lots fussier about keeping the right temperature. and serve it fresh cuz after 20 minutes the acid level changes. and don't use farmers brothers.

but throw that wisdom away and remember this - best coffee i ever tasted was made by a german gal who pre-soaked the whole can of grounds in the fridge, then added a bit of the resulting mud to a cuppa hot tea water. oh lordy that's gourmet stuff. :)

Might try finding an urn that will fit under that spout and still pour a cup with out spilling it all over , maybe another brand of urn will work ...I some how am getting the idea that if you don't get your coffee in the mornn' that the law of if "Mama not happy ,,, no one is ..."

Mornn' to you .

Yep that is true, and all it takes is one cup, that's not asking so much is it? I have a weird routine. I start out with a cup of orange spiced tea, follow that with a slim fast (for the vitamins) and then the coffee.

I need my wheaties this morning. We're re-doing the electric fences on two pastures today, assuming we don't get rained out.

BW    Posted 01-18-2004 at 04:34:30       [Reply]  [No Email]
Yup , I can understand that ,, I am heading off to my pilow at quarter past 8 ,, then back here again short 2 people on the night shift ... so I am livin' here every night throught till Friday ... I will be looking for the cup ...BIG cup later today ..LOL
You take care have a good one ..

The radar shows two bands of thunder showers moving in. It looks like they are going to straddle us, but right now it's sprinkling outside. I may get out of it, but right now I'm on my way to Home Depew to get supplies, so ya'll have a terrifc Sunday.

~Lenore    Posted 01-18-2004 at 08:20:05       [Reply]  [No Email]
Yep, those rain/storm bands came through here last night!
Hail size of quarters just a few miles north of me. Good luck!
