my coffee maker has a "come drink me" beep!!

I made some coffee with our new cuisinart coffee maker this morning. There are several awesome things about this coffee maker:

  1. it pours well

  2. the breaker flipped when i turned the microwave on which is on the same circuit as the coffee maker, at the same time the coffee maker was brewing. I moved the coffee maker over to another circuit, and it picked up right where it left off, brewing, with the correct time.

  3. 2 hours after it first beeped to tell me it was done brewing, it beeped again, and turned off the heater... i took this to read "come drink whats left of me!!!". There is an auto-shutoff mode, but i guess this is the default behaviour, and i love it.

  4. Its white, and reasonably sexy.

  5. There is no fifth thing.

My coffee maker is smarter than me, this is great (or scary)!!!


  1. Reasonably sexy?
    You're in advertising, right?


  2. HA!! Definitely not in advertising, just critical of it. And i watch a lot of design shows these days so everything (including coffee makers) is either sexy or fabulous.
