We have been using our coffee machine to make tea as well as our daily coffee. Instead of boiling water on the stove to make boxed scalloped potatoes or any other item that requires hot water just run water through your coffee maker and you have hot water to add to your food. This saves energy and is so much easier than waiting for water to boil.
I can just imagine many other ways to use the coffee maker.

When you need hot water, use your coffeemaker. When a recipe calls for a cup of hot water, run the water through the coffeemaker.
