AT A TIME when
we’re all looking for
my favorite new
kitchen toy is the
Keurig 2.0 Brewer
(Item #881975). When
I want a cup of coffee
but don’t want to
brew a whole pot, I
put in my favorite
K-Cup and in seconds
I have a tasty brew. The 2.0 has more.
The Keurig 2.0 system was developed based on specific consumer feedback. It brews not only individual
K-Cups, but also a four-cup carafe to
share with family and friends. And I can
make almost any size cup of coffee, from
4 to 30 ounces. The carafe is filled using
a larger K-Carafe pack.
Another great feature I enjoy: Keurig
got rid of the buttons and put in a color-
ful touch screen. Keurig found that con-
sumers enjoyed its simplicity and ease
of use. And thanks to the 2.0’s new,
enlarged 80-ounce water reservoir,
whether I am making a cup of coffee for
me, a cup of tea for my husband or hot
cocoa for my grandkids, it is easy to get
everybody’s drinks within minutes.
The 2.0 can be set to my specific
parameters and will automatically brew
coffee exactly the way I like it, every time.
The brewer has a sensor that reads the
Keurig Brewed K-Cup and will brew only
blends that have partnered with Keurig to
include the new technology.
All Costco locations carry K-Cups,
including Kirkland Signature™ Pacific Bold
and some locations carry Kirkland
Signature Breakfast Blend as well. You’ll
find even more choices on Costco.com. C
I DON’T HAVE to
tell you that drink-
ing water every day
is key to a healthy
lifestyle. And while
the majority of
can help to
unwanted tastes and odors.
Among the top names in
water filtration is Brita. Brita filters have established a name for
themselves by rising to the top of
brand-name water filters. In a
Brita® pitcher filter, activated carbon and ion-exchange resin work
together to filter out a number of
impurities, leaving you with healthier, great-tasting drinking water.
The carbon reduces chlorine; the
ion-exchange resin reduces metals:
copper, cadmium, mercury (health con-
taminants) and zinc (metallic taste).
Now, Brita has introduced an ad-
vanced system to make changing filters
easier and cleaner. First, they are two
times faster to change, since pre-soaking
isn’t required anymore. They’re
easier to insert and remove.
And, maybe best of all: no more
black flecks from the carbon
filter leaching into the
water. Those black flecks
weren’t harmful, but they
were unsightly. Even with
these upgrades to the filters,
they still come 10 to a pack-
age—a great value.
Brita filters (Item
#987554) are better for the
environment and your wallet.
Each filter can replace as
many as 300 standard 16.9-
ounce plastic water bottles.
Between October 2 and
26, they're $6 off. C

I LOVE waffles. And
there’s nothing like
the fresh, made-from-
Which is why
I love the Waring
Double Waffle Maker
(Item #562814). It
doesn’t just make a
waffle; it bakes two
Belgian waffles at one
time so there’s less
waiting if you’re eating with others.
These waffles are 1 inch deep and 6;/;
inches in diameter. The easy-to-handle
rotary feature lets you turn the pan to
ensure even distribution of the batter.
And the three audio beep tones
let you know when your waffles
are cooked so you don’t have to
stand over the machine, lifting
the lid to see if they’re done.
With 1,400 watts of
power, this waffle maker
heats up quickly and
makes a waffle in under
