I'm not a coffee drinker, but my wife is, so we have a coffee maker - the brew-through-filter-into-a-pot variety. I was wondering if there's anything the coffee maker can do for me, a non-coffee drinker. is there anything else I can make with it that I would like? I can't modify it, at least not to the extent that it can't make coffee any more, so I guess soft-serve ice cream and juiced carrots are not realistic expectations. I have a hot-water dispenser at the sink, so hot tea and (instant) hot chocolate are easier from the tap than they would be using a machine. And there's no need to restrict myself to having it dispense products for human consumption. With a few modifications, I could use it as a bug zapper when it's not making coffee, but then I'd be the one stuck cleaning the pot out every day. Or I could turn it into an under-desk foot warmer for my unusually cold office. On second thought, maybe it's best to stick to food and beverages. Any ideas?
