The standard coffeemaker found in kitchens, hotel rooms, and break rooms has a hidden talent—it can be used to cook all manner of meals. Boiling and poaching can be accomplished in the pot, the basket can be used for steaming, and the hot plate can fry and grill. There are several coffeemaker cooking experts on the Internet: Jody Anderson began cooking with a coffeemaker to develop simple recipes her nephew could make while he was deployed in Afghanistan. Swedish coffeemaker chef Katja of Kaffekokarkokboken began cooking with a coffeemaker when she went to college back in 2009. Recently CHOW produced some how-to videos on how to cook breakfast and dinner with a coffeemaker.
