Coffee Pot Love
My Christmas wish list (3 years ago) included a Cuisinart coffee maker with a hot water system. Unfortunately every store that carried it at the time was either sold out, back ordered or had discontinued it. And for the longest time I couldn’t find it anywhere. Then a few months ago I spotted in in Lowes. But I couldn’t bring myself to part with a hundred and twenty five of my hard earned dollar bills (That’s why I put it on the Christmas list. Spending other people’s money is way easier and more fun than spending your own.) while I had a perfectly functioning – albeit not as fancy – coffee maker at home. I figured I will just wait until my current pot breaks or my dream pot goes on sale. Up until Saturday I hadn’t seen a discount on the Cuisinart and my cheap Black & Decker was, much to my dismay, still working wonderfully. Then I went to Costco. There it was. The Cuisinart with hot water system for $89.99. MINE. I brought it home and set it up immediately. And so far, I love it. I love the way it looks. I love that I don’t have to drag my kettle out for a cup of instant coffee, tea or hot chocolate and I love that I can use both the coffee maker side and the hot water system at the same time, I can set the temperature I like and I can schedule it to turn off anywhere from 2 to 4 hours after my brew. Ninety bucks well spent!Doesn’t that look better than my little Black & Decker? Do any of you have a kitchen appliance that you absolutely love? One that you waited 3 years for?
