We used this simplehuman machine quite a bit the past couple of months in the RainyDayKitchen.  We found the machine was simple to use, easy to clean up, and made both good coffee and tea. 

Unfortunately, one of the users did manage to break the lever when trying to make tea one day.  We thought perhaps a part came loose on the inside and sensing a RainyDayProject, we took it apart :-)

Once taken apart, we realized the failure was not repairable...it appeared to be a stress failure on the rod connecting the lever to the locking cam. 

We gave the simplehuman customer support folks a call and they said they would send a replacement right away.  We received the replacement unit in about a week. 

Wow...another great customer support experience!  We'll let you know this unit hold up to our pounding I mean coffee drinking :-)



Single Cup Coffee Brewer

By Wan Chi Lau

Single cup coffee machines are starting to become the "thing" and we are happy about that because here at RainyDay Magazine we love our coffee.  Some of us even have a machine right in our office.

simplehuman has now added a single cup pod coffee/tea brewer to their line of user-centric home products.  The RainyDayKitchen folk, of course, could not wait to get their hands on one!

In the FirstLook review, we'll set up the machine and take a look at all the pieces that makes this machine work.

In the FirstUse review, we'll see just how quick and simple it really is for us humans to make a cup of coffee.  We'll then see if we can teach the cat to do it.
