Consumer Reports rates this puppy second after its big sis the DCM2500 on its list of best coffee makers.... With a price tag averaging $25, how can you go wrong? from the site: Both Black & Decker models excelled in our tests, with the DCM2500 having a slight lead. It also has a setting that allows you to set the time the coffee starts brewing-a nice touch if the aroma gets you going. Both models can make up to eight or 12 cups at a time and have glass carafes. The Mr. Coffee, which comes with a 12-cup glass carafe, allows you to adjust brew strength and has an adjustable- temperature hotplate. The carafe-less Hamilton Beach offers a dispenser-style setup: Place your mug under the spout and push against the lever, and out comes the coffee. # Perfect Pour" Carafe with dripless spout & ergonomic handle. # One-piece cover for access to reservoir & brew basket. # Easy touch lighted "On/Off" switch. # Water fill & coffee brew markings. # Sneak-A-Cup Interrupt Feature. # 2 Water level indicators. # Dimensions: 13.5"H x 8.75"W x 11.75"D # Weight: 6 lbs
