Comment:
My father and I have used the the Brew-n-Go for about 10 years. It works for us, we don't waste half a pot. we save money by not wasting coffee. I just purchased 2000 #1 coffee filter off the net. The only problem we have had was due to Melitta coffee filter plugging up. we changed to a different filter, no more problems. I keep 2 of these coffee pots, brand new in the box, just in case B&D stop making this product (which would be a mistake) best $17.99 I have ever spent.

Comment:
This is a great idea that didn't work. I like the single-cup feature (especially that it brews more than a 1-cup serving).<br /><br />The problem I've encountered is the coffee reservoir overflows with water and spills back into the water reservoir which causes the water pump tube to get clogged with coffee and has clogged the pump.
How long have you owned it:
Three-to-six months

No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
I have used this model coffee maker for several years. I drink decaf and my husband drinks regular coffee. We usually have two cups each and enjoy the fresh cup of coffee rather than one that has been sitting for an hour or so. It takes up very little room on the counter in my kitchen or in my motor home. It usually lasts for 2 yrs or longer before needing to be replaced. I do like the sleeker slim model a little better. I do not like the cup that comes with this model. It tips easily.<br /> I just wish I could find paper filters to fit it better than the #2 cone.
