Modding the Coffee Maker
As some that tread this site may know, I recently bought
a new coffee maker. I don't have any complaints about the coffee it
makes at all, but there is a problem with my new Mr. Coffee.
As you can see, the filter holding is full of water
after being washed in the dishwasher.
This simply won't do.
In looking at the carafe, I noticed that the Mr. Coffee engineers had thought about drainage and had placed a small hole to allow water to flow out of the handle. I don't know why they didn't fix the filter holder as well.
Like any good engineer, I planned to "measure twice, cut
once" as my father taught me.
Viola! A target for my modification.
The actual modification.
The deed is done. A drainage hole has been created.
Here you can see the coffee maker put back together. The drainage hole looks good. I daresay that no one would think it didn't come out of the box like this. Even Michele was happy with the outcome of this little project.
Yes, that's my teapot. No, you can't have it. I bought it off eBay for $12.
Long time readers will note the calendar. This is the infamous calendar that I have been instructed to check daily to ensure I 'know what's going on' in the house.
