Subject: Oh no - Much Loved B&D Infuze Vacuum Brewer Has Finally Kicked
I've had this now-discontinued Black & Decker Infuze for four years,
and it has been fantastic. Unfortunately, I knew this day would come,
and I would be unable to replace it. The handle on the lower vessel
has started to rip away a big hole from the plastic, thus making a
vacuum impossible. Not sure if this is something I can glue, or if I
even want to.

Thinking about replacements, the Bodom eSantos naturally comes to
mind, but it seems that I've read so-so reviews over the years.
Anyone own one of these and currently happy/unhappy? We have many
other ways to make coffee here, but really love to have an automatic
pot brewer for mornings and get-togethers. The infuze was great in
that even though 9-of-10 times I just made coffee in the morning, it
was programmable, which was a great convenience. I really wish they
didn't stop making these so soon.

Other considerations would be a higher-end drip brewer, like a
Capresso, Technivorm, Bunn, etc, etc. Anyone have any recommendations/
thoughts on this path?

Already have an espresso rig and chemex pot to hold me over in the
mean time, but looking to replace the Infuze soon. . . thanks.

Anthony.

There's no (...) in his e-mail address. Google
obfuscates the address to prevent its spammers from
harvesting addresses there. Everyone using an actual
newsreader sees the part of the address before the @
symbol is rtwatches.

I have an Infuze that I've used a few times. I'm not a great fan of vac
pot coffee so it's in my attic in the original box. Would you like to
buy it? Make me a reasonable offer. Take the fish out of my email
address to respond.
