Philips Recalls Senseo Single Serve Coffee Makers - Models HD7810, HD7820 and HD7832 Affected
We've just gotten word that Philips is recalling Senseo single serve coffee makers with the model numbers HD7810, HD7820 and HD7832 produced from July 2006-November 2008. These recalls effect both Polish made and Chinese made Senseo units. You can use the link below to input the details of your model and date of production to see if your unit is affected.
Philips has identified a safety problem which affects a number of Senseo® coffee makers produced in Poland from July 2006 to November 2008 and for units made in China from July 2007 to November 2008. Philips is committed to the well-being of its consumers and has decided to voluntarily recall the affected Senseo® machines and offer replacement units to consumers.
The product type-numbers affected are:
HD7810, HD7820 and HD7832
Unaddressed calcification in the coffeemaker from use of hard or medium water, when combined with an external electrical fault, can lead to obstruction of the overpressure release system causing boilers to suddenly separate possibly leading to injury. Per year, the risk is less than three per million and there have been no reported cases in the United States.

Keep in mind that Bunn's very good about honoring their warranties. If you have any problems, they'll take care of you. Otherwise, you might consider picking up an Opod on eBay. There have been some good deals lately.
I was ticked about the color choice. I have a red unit that I love.
I'm looking to replace the Senseo with a Bunn My Cafe. It gets great reviews, but I've noticed in the Amazon.com reviews that these units have also experienced leakage issues and electrical problems. I'm assuming that these single pod coffee makers require a lot of pressure to quickly heat up the water and brew. Is this just a common risk with all single pod machines?
In fact the most recent negative review claimed that Bunn was thinking of recalling the My Cafe unit and wouldn't have a solution to these problems on the shelves until May 2009. I haven't seen claims like this anywhere. Any heard about it? I'd like to know if I should hold off buying the My Cafe until May 2009.
