Best Uses
About 10 years ago, I bought 3 original DCM19 Brew n Go's models at about $10 clearance price. First one lasted 7 years at 250 mugs per year! Used #2 cone filters with seams I first folded back and 1 oz of coffee. Used 2nd one as a replacement, gave 3rd one away as a gift, and bought this new DCM18 for work. That one last only for about 30 mugs and switch stopped working. Found B&D changed manufacurers and quality dropped. Now B&D has a new taller Brew n Go out in Target stores. They must have got the message about the switch problems. Anyway, I found another old DCM19 at a thrift store as a 2nd backup and am happy. Note that I bought a 15 oz all stainless steel mug that fits under the older model with it's 5-1/4 clearance, but still have the original mugs.
How long have you owned it:
One-to-three months

No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
Nice personal coffee maker
Brews good coffee
Convenient to Use
Drips A Bit After Finishe
No Ounce Marks Inside
Best Uses
The first one I had for many years with no problems. The second one I bought just a few months ago stopped working for no reason. The switch just will not turn on.<br /> I still am going to buy another one to replace it. Next time I will keep the receipt and box for a while.
