Weekend or weekday, one coffeemaker

Kitchen appliances get put through their paces certain times more than others. During the weekday, the stove might not see any action at all, but the microwave may be put into overdrive. Coffeemakers, on the other hand, see use every day of the week. (At least for those of us who cannot manage to make it out of the house without a cup.) However, even with a coffeemaker being an essential appliance, that doesn't mean it needs to perform exactly the same every day of the week. Monday morning comes, and that coffee might need to be ready to go out the door, while conversely, a leisurely weekend offers time to enjoy the whole pot.

The Hamilton Beach Scoop Two-Way Brewer offers users the ability to brew either a pot or a to-go mug. Now, one might ask what the heck need is there for such a device? After all, one could just brew a pot and then pour some coffee into any ol' to-go mug; this is true. This coffeemaker, though, ups the ante by incorporating the ability to use the popular prefilled pods that come in a variety of flavors. A-ha! Eureka! one might exclaim. That is, until they realize that it is Monday morning, and in the rush to get out of the door they forgot to put water in the darn thing. Maybe a stop at the corner café isn't such a bad way to go.
