Recently we broke the glass carafe on our drip coffee maker. Yes I know it’s very last-century, but I still like drip coffee. A search on line revealed that that model was no longer manufactured, even though the basic design has been stable for decades. The carafe of a related (read “different-shaped”) model cost about $35, excluding the hassle of ordering and delivery. The local shop had a whole new coffee maker for about $40. So of course we threw away the perfectly good old model, sans carafe, and got the new one.
