Got a new coffee pot on SALE!
(a Manic Monday post)
Ah, what word strikes more fervent pleasure in the hearts of inveterate shoppers than “SALE”? My old coffee pot is from 1997 or so. It was a Christmas gift from my friend Grace, who lives in Maine. It’s a 4 cup Black and Decker. Before this coffee pot, I was using one of those aluminum top-of-the-stove drip pots that you pour boiling water into and wait forEVAH.
Well, I was at Tarzhay (that’s how the French would pronounce “Target”) and they were having a sale on everything and anything. I found this cute little 5-cup model. Coincidentally, it is a Black and Decker, same as the old coffee pot. You can read about it here at Amazon Black & Decker DCM675BMT 5-Cup Programmable Coffee Maker with Carafe, Black/Stainless
While deboxing, I discovered that the new coffee pot comes complete with a scoop (it’s a perfect tablespoon – I measured) and an admonishment on an orange card in three different languages to “Please Wash Me”. I would never ignore such instructions. I don’t even remove the tags from my pillows. I’m a “rules” type of person.
Here are all the pieces-parts of the new Black and Decker coffee pot, completely deboxed. The instructions say that we must run a pot of clear water, with a filter in place, through the post in order to remove any dust from the manufacturing process. Okay….
Oh, looky – the new coffee pot by Black and Decker has a timer! I’m going to have fun with this. I think this will make me get out of bed. I won’t want my coffee to get stale or have a burnt flavor, so I will get up on time to drink it.
Usurper coffee pot takes the place of the old one on the counter. I think this unit is actually smaller than the old white one. I will miss the white one, but it’s time has come and gone… will report about the quality of the coffee in the morning!
