I have decided that I want to turn my CC1 on about 45 minutes before I get out of bed in the morning.
Been looking around and find the picking slim for a decent timer. I did find the one:
Honeywell 1800 watt timer

Maybe someone will have a better option?

It might do the trick.  I just found an old school timer lying around the house.  It has little switches to turn on or off the machine at 15 minute intervals.  No electronics, just old school and it works fine.

Or, if you want to geek out and track your total electrical usage for the machine while running it on a timer, there's the Kill-A-Watt version:

There are many options and also a recent thread on H-B. I believe someone reported success with the Honeywell but there are cheaper options also. I added a timer to my QM67, makes we wonder why I never did it on my Silvia, it has been great!

I bought the GE heavy duty one that Home Depot sell with a digital programmer.  It's working fine with my BZ07.

"GE 15 Amp 7-Day Plug-In Dual-Outlet Digital Timer" on the website, and quite a bit cheaper than the one linked in the OP.

One of the reasons I was looking at the Honeywell was because I was concerned that many of the timers that plug directly into the wall might block both of my receptacles. Seems like you can't get too many plug-ins on the cabinet top, so I was going for a timer that wouldn't be an issue. The downside is the fact that I have to tuck that timer in behind the coffee maker to hide it.

I like the intermatic timers. There was one listed at the bottom of your (OP) link...

Click Here (www.1cooltool.com)

The one I have does not cover both outlets at the receptacle.

Also, something else to consider...if you're going to leave it on a timer, many people suggest installing a surge suppressor.  Chris' coffee service offers a pretty inexpensive small Belkin one that plugs right into the receptacle and then you plug the timer right into it.
