Got a new coffee pot on SALE!

(a Manic Monday post)

IMG_0038-Old-Coffee-Pot 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.

IMG_0040-New-Coffee-Pot-In-Box 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

IMG_0041-Please-Wash-Me-New-Coffee-Pot 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.

IMG_0042-New-Coffee-Pot-Deboxed 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….

IMG_0046-New-Coffee-Pot-Has-A-Timer 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.

IMG_0053-Old-dejected-coffee-pot The old coffee pot sits dejected on the pantry floor near the trash can. I won’t put it in the can yet, because I want to be sure that the new coffee pot is up to my rigorous standards first.

IMG_0058-Crap-stuck-to-electrical-plugI don’t understand why someone is paid to do this to the plug – put something on it to prevent it from being plugged in. It’s sort of creepy – what do they think will happen?

IMG_0062-Set-the-time-on-new-coffee-pot I need to set the time – right now it is blinking “12… 12… 12…”. I also copied down the steps for setting the auto program. We shall find out in the morning if it works or not!

IMG_0064-Usurper-Coffee-Pot 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!
