HONEY, Thats Not A Paint Mixer!!!

Thirty two ounces is the perfect size of a specialty coffee maker for all of those single persons out there of for the people that just do not want to be rude to ask their company to leave when you have had enough of their conversations. This electric coffee maker is made by Mr. Coffee and can be found at a variety of stores and will cost you less that $20.00 plus tax. This has an amusing shape to it and the first time that my wife and daughter saw it, they that it was a new toy that they could mix my daughters finger paints in side of it.

Well, needless to say this did an excellent job mixing the paints together, but there were too many bubbles for them to use for any art projects. So, unbeknownst to them they decided to add more paint and to use this before I got home, unknowingly they were using this for my daughters’ art projects and I was not there to tell them that it was not for their art projects. Once I had gotten home from the store I was taken aback, because before I could say another word they were adding more paint because they thought thet they did not add enough paint because of all of the bubbles and this was when it had started overflowing all over the place and the finger paint was spewing just like a volcano. At the time, this was not very funny because I ran as fast as I could to grab at the power cord, and my three dogs (germen Shepard and two miniature schnauzers) thought that I was playing and they started grabbing at my pant legs and tripping me all the way until I able to grab a hold of the cord and gave it a yank to stop it from spewing.

Description
This can be plugged into any household outlet, and has a removable 32 ounce pitcher that sits on top; I guess that is why they thought that this was a toy and not a coffee pot. The clean up was as simple as it could be since I got to it right away there was some kind of non stick coating on the surface that allowed me to just soap and water to scrub the paint bubbles off. Even though the lid twists and locks into place it does not stop the liquids from seeping if you add too much. If you go away and forget to turn this off then this has a safety device that will automatically shut this down but it will not shut off by itself if the pot is over flowing, just when the cycle is done will it shut off automatically. Along with the automatic start this also has a time dial that you can turn so it will start and make your beverage later in time. This whole product only weighs about five pounds when it is empty and does not have paint all over the outside. The outside diameter is approximately 6” x 7” x 11” in diameter.

Experience
Even though my first experience was a very memorable one, I still would not have missed it for the world. Just to let you that this coffee maker did survive and even though it is specially colored outside, it kind of looks like a designer looking, one now. This now is put through its regular paces such as putting creamy beverages inside will heat and mix and surprise the heck out of you. It will show you that you do not have to go out to enjoy a frothy mix of any powdered or spicy mixes. We have made hot chocolate, flavored coffee, and cappuccino with a very large head of foam. We also like to add cinnamon and different type’s syrup for a lively flavored beverage. As long as I keep this product away from my wife and daughter there is no more experimenting with it. This has worked very since the finger painting incident about a year ago, but I highly recommend that you only make a couple of cups at a time, to prevent any spewing and overflowing.

Conclusion
This coffee maker would be perfect for the single person or one person that does not think that this is for your daughters’ art project. But, we have put it through all of the paces and it has survived and is still working and it does blend in well with any kind of wall paper now. Five stars for this as long as you do not fill too full.
