With one simple part that you may already own, you can easily turn any old electric coffee maker into an automatic coffee maker.
– An electric coffee maker:
– A plug-in timer (for example: http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2102613). These are generally sold as security devices to turn your lights on and off automatically (if you’re gone on vacation, for example) so that it looks like somebody is home:
Set the times on the timer:
The green tab is for turning on, the red tab is for turning off. The best accuracy you can get is within about 15 minutes:
The whole circular section rotates to set the clock, which is shown in the middle:
Plug the coffee maker into the timer, and then the timer into the wall socket. The timer has a manual on-off switch on it. Be sure it is set to off before you plug in the timer:
Now prepare the coffee, and turn on the switch on the coffee maker. Once the set time rolls around, enjoy your automatically brewed coffee:
One note of caution: make sure that the carafe (pot) is in the coffee maker before you leave it to run automatically. Things quickly get messy otherwise.:
