Subject: Free Presto Scandavian Carafe
Friends-

I've had a disapponting experience with my Presto Scandanavian.

It worked great for a few times and then something went wonky with the
control system. It repeatedly shut down before all the water perked
through.

Probably just a manufacturing anomaly since so many here have been
satisfied with these.

Even so, I won't be going down the same street.

So... for Presto owners.... I'm offering a free carafe (since I bet
these will be hard to replace as this is a discontinued item). Just
send me the cost of shipping and I'll get it to you. Better yet, if
you live in SoCal, come pick it up from me in West LA and save me the
trouble of packing it. You can have the rest of the machine as well,
if you want it.

5 cups.

The carafe is gone, by the way. I've moved on to something more
reliable.

After 5 months in storage (we've been remodeling) I unpacked the
Aeropress the other day. That remains the best way to make a single
cup. Boy is it good. It'd be nice if they could scale that brew
method up to a full-size machine.

My Presto does the same thing ... but only if I'm brewing a VERY small amount,
probably less than 3 cups (its size cups). I've been doing 3.5 cups lately with
no problem. How much water were you using?
