I have this expensive, really large , electronic coffee maker. I should probably give it a name. Calling it "coffee maker" isn't that personal. It is probably to big and too smart for me. I need to get the step stool out when I want or need to see the
top of it.To start it, you just take your finger and press a sliver knob. Every morning, Bob says, "I'm going to give it the finger". I know what he means. Yesterday when I was cleaning the coffee ground basket, which I was doing because a sign came on the
face of the machine, saying,"clean filter", another sign followed saying,"clean disk". I had to get the instruction book, which is written in French and English ,out to see what that meant. It had to do with cleaning mineral deposits from the water reservoir.Out
comes the step stool. I spent minutes trying to figure this one out. I pushed, unscrewed knobs, removed what I could and then put it all back into the right place. Finally in desperation,I read the last line in the list of what to do. If you want to skip this
procedure, unplug the machine and plug it back on. Next time, that's what I will do. Now I am going to let Bob give it the finger.
