**ETA:  I took the brewer and receipt to BBB and they exchanged it happily, yay! We'll see what I do next time lol. Thanks gals!




My family breaks my coffee pots when they visit. Arrrrgggggg!

They turn them on off, on off, onnnnnnnn- off, onnnnnnnn.

Last two times it was a $20 old school brewer, this time- my $100 keurig. Wtf lol.

I don't want to spring for a keurig if the alternatives are fine. Do you have one? Pros/ cons?

I'd buy a Keurig.  With the Keurig, buy an old coffee pot from Goodwill or something cheap from Walmart/Target.  Whenever they come over, hide the Keurig and use the old/cheap coffee pot.  Then when they leave take out the Keurig again.

I don't know how the alternatives are though.  I have a single serve Keurig.  After we move I'll be getting the one with the water reservoir, lol.  That way I can use bigger cups.  The one we have now was a test run to see if we liked it.

Oh no! I am sorry they broke your keurig. Get two, and put the expensive one away when they come. I have a small one that I take to the beach. - it isn't keurig though, although it is made to use k-cups, it is mr. Coffee, I think. I'm sure I price-shopped.

The single one is the one I have for the beach. I leave it at my mom's so my sister can use it when she visits there. The reservoir ones are nice.
