Question about Hamilton Beach Stay or Go 45238 10-Cup Coffee Maker
When pouring coffee, the carafe dribbles an equal amount of coffee down the front of the carafe. How do I stop this mess from happening?
This has been a problem with many carafes. I tried something I saw on a home show once, and it works, but... it may seem weird and undesirable. Unless you pour just the tiniest stream, the liquid wants to stay with the pot, you see. It will be attracted along the spout back down the pot, causing the dribble.
Put just a tiniest smear of shortening or oil on the pouring lip, and the problem will instantly disappear.
You've already guessed the undesirable part of this, right? Yep. It doesn't last for long because the hot water cuts through the film after a few pours. And, who wants Crisco in their coffee?
I didn't notice anything different with my coffee when I tried it. Probably not enough grease to make that much difference.
But the "back-drip" ended pronto.
