Its a coffeemaker!

 

it just works! although, it can't seem to make enough coffee scent to fill the entire house. tried a variety of beans but still no aroma. not a big deal, scented candles will take care of it. what's important is the coffee tastes good.

pauses drip when you need a cup right away ; heats up really well

a bit of a power guzzler(understandable, hot plate has to be hot), don't leave it on 24/7

Easy to use, good temperature, made OK coffee, affordable

Poorly made, no service centres, no spare parts, no assistance from Black & Decker/Applica
