Put the cardboard from a frozen pizza under your coffee pot. It absorbs the little spills and drips from the coffee pot. It also doubles as a place for your spoon if you add creamer! Less cleanup and recycling!

I paid about $80 on sale for a bun 10-cup coffee maker. We have the professional Bun 2 pot coffee maker at the church and it is fast and wonderful. I was tired of my old one & bought this expensive one. It overflows when you use more than 6 spoons of coffee with the full pot. If I make it with 8 cups and just under the 6 spoons, it's ok, but when I have company & want more, I have a huge mess every time.
I had a DeLonghi before this that made coffee and espresso. I'm now of the opinion that the cheaper, regular coffee makers are the way to go. The espresso stopped coming through and eventually the milk frother stopped working too! Plain, inexpensive coffee makers are just fine.
2 Tbsp of Borax dissolved in a full coffee pot of water. Run the same borax water through 2 full cycles of your coffee maker. Rinse pot and run another cycle of plain water. Rinse pot and basket. No more stains or coffee grounds residue in basket. Do this once a month.
No elbow grease required! I know there are other coffeepot cleaning methods. If you have more please share!
