Decision-free mornings. Hamilton Beach

Decisions can be difficult in the morning. Waking up requires a whole checklist of things to go through. Luckily (hopefully), as this is a daily practice, our checklist becomes routine, and we go through it on autopilot. Until we hit the coffeemaker and we are faced with our first true decision of the day: what type of coffee to make? Since mornings aren't necessarily the best time to be considering questions of utmost importance, perhaps it's best to play it safe and make two different types.

Covering one's bases in the morning is all fine and good, but this Hamilton Beach Stay Or Go Coffeemaker Split Basket Brewer has a more realistic and practical use on everyday life. Households no longer have to decide on one particular type of coffee, because with the dual basket design, this coffeemaker brews two. However, for those suffering from indecision in the morning, the dual brewing system is a lifesaver. (Or at least a convenient way to make it through the first obstacle of the day.)

With the choice of brewing directly into two travel mugs or into one thermal carafe, the countertop appliance is perfectly suited for weekday or weekend use. Anything that streamlines the decision-making process during the workweek is of course desirable, but decision-free weekends are really where it's at.

The Hamilton Beach Stay Or Go Coffeemaker Split Basket Brewer will be available June 2010.
