This is a personal coffeemaker which brews directly into a 15 ounce travel mug eliminating the need for a carafe. This unit comes equipped with a stainless steel mug which is tapered to fit most any auto or truck cup holders. You can use #1 paper filters if you choose, but a permanent filter is provided to eliminate the need for the paper filter. This is probably good in that you save money on filters and also because the #1 filter is hard to find in stores. It is easily available online however.
You have an auto shut off function eliminating the worry of wondering if you turned off the unit before you left home. The mug provided is dishwasher safe as is the mug lid, filter, and filter basket. The coffeemaker measures 9 3/4 inches by 7 inches by 6 inches and comes with a one year warranty against manufacturing defects.
Available in two different models. The DCM18S model comes with a stainless steel travel mug and the DCM18 comes with a standard travel mug. This personal coffee maker is perfect for household with only one coffee drinker, or for commuters or office professionals. Small enough to fit right on your desk or in your office cubicle.
To provide for a safe grip the mug comes with a rubber handle and to keep the coffee hot a lid is provided. The bottom of the mug is tapered down to a 2 1/2 inch diameter to accommodate most vehicle cup holders.
This is also the perfect brewer for the tea drinker in the household. Or for the occasional hot chocolate drink. Perfect for those cold winter days when you might crave something different like hot chocolate. Need a small snack of soup, oatmeal, or other instant foods? It can do that to.
Looking for a gift for a birthday, Christmas, Easter, or some other holiday or special occasion? This would make a perfect gift for that. Also good for the son or daughter leaving home to go to college.

DCM18S PROS Not rated yet I bought this a year ago for use at work. I only like flavored coffee and it became harder to find, given my location. It has worked absolutely great …
