How exciting!

I'm part of a recall!

Normally, I don't have any products new enough to qualify for a recall - like those on cars - or of the right product category, like baby items.

But this time - it's my beloved Senseo machine.

The one that got me hooked on coffee, and the one that saw me through last week until Jason bought me a new Hamilton Beach Brewstation.

(The six-cup model that was $25 at Walmart. Not the $50 model. Don't get too excited, folks.)

Apparently, there is some problem with mineral buildup and an "external electrical fault" and exploding coffee machines. And while I no longer use the Senseo as my primary machine (and there haven't been any reports of problems in this country, just in Europe) - well, heck, if they're going to be nice enough to send me a brand spanking new coffee maker, who am I to quibble?

I feel so special!

SO, if you have one of these machines, hie thee hither to the Phillips website, and check the bottom, and see if yours is on the list.

Can't have our coffee makers exploding on us, can we?

What is it with you and coffee makers?!

I wish I knew! I was at Sam's today and they had one of those Keurig cup coffee makers, for like $122, and I thought how neat it would be to have one. But I can't take the chance that one that expensive would break!
