Re: Desperately craving coffee

Some of the water will be lost as steam, and some is retained in the coffee grounds.  Do you have a spare carafe you want to sell?

Is the Kurig coffee pot dangerous

It is not any more dangerous than any other coffee maker. Every coffee maker needs to be kept clean and descaled regularly to keep them safe. If you want to be "squeaky clean" use something like a one cup at a time drip coffee maker (Melita) and always use boiling water.

My 8572 coffee maker drips hot water ,even when no water is added to the machine.This is making it difficult to know how much water is needed to brew a full pot.

I will assume that it is a pour over brewer from your statement, so the only thing that comes to mind is the thermostat not turning off the elements and the water is boiling and coming out the brew tube. You can try to adjust the thermostat first if that does not help then you might have to replace it.

West Bend Lifetime Stove Top Coffee Maker This is a nice heavy stainless steel coffee maker, probably from the 50s or 60s. It has four parts; a carafe that sits on the stove, a piece that fits on that with...

Not to sound like a knw it all, but we have a pot just like this. You have to boil the water in a seperate kettle and pour it in the pot. This is a drip pot, not a perculator. It will make the best coffe you've ever had.

Don't understand how it works

This coffee maker has a hot water reservoir that heats and stores hot water so it can brew coffee faster. Once you fill the reservoir by pouring a potful of cold water into the top, you can turn on the switch at the side of the unit and in about 10 minutes the water in the reservoir will be hot. I usually leave this switch turned on to keep the water in the reservoir hot. The front switch turns on the pot warmer at the front of the unit, so it should be turned off unless you are making coffee or keeping a pot warm. To make a fresh pot, put a filter and ground coffee in the removable filter basket, slide the basket into the unit, place an empty carafe on the warming burner and using a separate container pour fresh water into the filler at the top of the unit. The fresh water displaces the hot water in the reservoir and voila, the coffee carafe starts to fill. The amount of fresh water you added is the amount of coffee you will end up with, less a little bit that might have evaporated if you only make coffee every morning or less often. Most units have a plunger under the filler lid that keeps the fresh water from going in to the hot water reservoir until you close the lid, so close it after pouring in the water. Also, turn off the front switch if the carafe is getting low or empty, as it can get hot enough to crack the carafe. If you're not going to be using the coffee maker for several days, turn off the side switch or unplug the unit to save energy and reduce evaporation from the reservoir. I love mine. It makes great coffee and is much quicker than the drip type.

Can I adjust the water flow for finely ground coffee?

You probably have coffee ground for a drip coffee pot, not an automatic drip coffee maker. With a drip coffee pot, you put the coffee in and add the hot water on top of that. You might want to try a coffee press. They are fantastic for the finer grinds of coffee. Some Mexican coffees are ground almost as fine as flour and a press works great. You can get a press for about $12 & up.

Warming plate boils coffee.

Make sure you are using the type of commercial coffee pot like the one in the picture. They don't have to have to be plastic with the metal bottom, they can be all glass. The commercial pots are heavy duty and usually disperse the heat well.

If you are using commercial pots the only solution without replacing the warmers is to put three pennies on the warmer and to put the pot on top of them. The pennies will get hot so don't forget and grab them but the pennies help to move the pot just a little way away from the direct heat.

The Bunn coffee machine has an internal tank used for holding approx three potfulls of water at just below brewing temperature. When you add water for a potful, the thermostat senses cold water and starts the brew heater. The water level inside the tank comes up and goes through the sprayhead. This "surge" of water, that you call drips is normal. The hot water stratifies to the top of the tank, just like an electric water tank in a house. The internal pot heater kicks in and boils the water already in the tank, raising the water level in the siphon pipe to the sprayhead until the reservoir under the add water opening is empty.
