Just about every evening, I set up coffee in one pot for Jeff and tea in the other pot for me. I put in the water and the coffee and filter/tea bags in each one.
Then whenever I wake up, I just push the button for my tea to start and I start Jeff's coffee just before he wakes up.
I'm a morning person so I could do this then but it just takes a minute to set them up, usually when I clean up the supper dishes, and it is very nice to push those buttons each morning for our beverages.
Yes, both pots have timers and I could set them and not even touch the buttons in the morning, but I prefer to just turn them on when I want to. And looking close, it looks like I need to clean a little around both pots. Coffee and tea both leave stains on everything but the stains come up easily with a little spray cleaner.
