Fresh cup every time
Cons
Cup Tips Easily
Best Uses
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.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
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
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
