Coffee makers are great, until they overflow! We personally have had several incidences of coffee overflowing, causing frustration and a large enough mess that could have easily resulted in extensive damage not to mention injury.
We used the automatic start feature in the AM, until we had too many malfunctions with the coffee overflowing onto the kitchen counter, down through the cabinets onto our new hardwood floor. After the 2nd malfunction we purchased a new coffee maker from a different manufacture thinking it was the manufactures defect. After the 3rd malfunction we researched to see if there was a solution for the overflowing issue.
Our research revealed that this is a common problem and that there was not a product to solve the issue.
The research located many websites and blogs from consumers that were expressing the same frustrations. Many blamed the coffee maker (Bunn, Cuisinart, KitchenAid, Keurig, DeLonghi, Mr. Coffee, Black & Decker, Krups, Breville, Hamilton Beach, Oster, Capresso, iCoffee, Delfino, etc.) and purchased a different brand in order to alleviate the problem. It was not isolated to any one manufacturer; all of the major manufactures had similar complaints.
It was brought to light that in most cases it was not the manufactures failure, simply a consumer’s misuse of the coffee maker, e.g. overfilled the coffee bin, incorrect filter, not placing the carafe in properly, etc.
Seeing that that there is a real need for this product inspired us to have the product developed and patented. The Just in Case Deck was created just for your peace of mind...
