Goal:  To raise the height of the Technivorm KBT-741 coffeemaker so that it will allow the new-style thermal carafe, with lid attached, to slip into place in its usual position under the filter holder. (This applies only to the KBT-741 new-style carafe version with the fully rounded lip -- no spout -- that will not fit under the coffeemaker with lid attached.).  Height before adding riser is 15 inches.  Height after adding riser is 15.5 inches. 

Total Cost:  About $2

Modifications Needed to Coffee Maker:  None (coffee maker, carafe, and carafe pad are not altered in any way).

Materials Needed: 

Tools Needed:
