I hope I can explain my situation properly. I have a drip coffee brewer that is advertised and being able to heat the water to 195° - 205°. It is also listed as using 1400 watts. Using my Kill a Watt meter, it reads somewhere between 1200 and 1250 watts draw. My line voltage is usually 118v to 120v dropping it around 116v during the brewing process. The water using a K-Probe is reading 185° for most of the cycle ending at a high of 193°. My question is - is the brewer defective? Is the line voltage determining the low readings? Do I take the brewer back and demand my money back or is this to be expected?
