This is a very popular single serve coffeemaker made by Black & Decker. Brews straight into any 5 to 12 ounce coffee or travel mug. With its compact design it has a small footprint on your counter and would be perfect for the one coffee drinker household, office, or dorm room. Since it makes hot water you can also use it for teas, hot chocolate, soups, or other instant foods. Comes with a convenient permanent filter eliminating the need for those messy paper filters. Has a mug/cup rest and a simple "start" lever with an "on" indicator light. For safety it comes with an automatic shut off function to give you peace of mind. The parts are dishwasher safe. This compact unit measures approximately 6 1/5 inches x 7 inches x 9 1/5 inches and comes with a 1 year limited warranty.
Easy to use. All you do is pour a mug full of tap water into the brewers water reservoir. Then put the permanent filter into the filter basket and add the coffee grounds. Then place the cup on the cup rest and push the "start" button. The indicator light illuminates until the brewing cycle is completed. To clean the base of the unit just wipe clean with a damp cloth. This Black and Decker DCM7 is an 800 watt coffee maker that will quickly brew a cup or mug of coffee.

Black and Decker DCM7 Coffeemaker CONS:
Doesn't accommodate tall coffee mugs
After extended use the back top of the pot tends to warp
Doesn't keep the coffee warm (no warming plate)
Not hot enough for a few users
Black and Decker DCM7 Summary: One of the complaint's was that it didn't keep the coffee warm. Actually, it wasn't designed for that. It was designed for brewing a cup that you want to drink immediately after brewing. A number of people use paper filters along with or instead of the permanent filter. Some use #1 and some #4 filters and then cut them to fit. Overall almost every user loved this unit. It is small, easy to use, inexpensive, easy to clean, lasts a long time, and is less expensive to use than a pod coffee maker.

Black & Decker DCM7 Not rated yet I love this coffeemaker. Have had several. They don't last forever. Do wish I could buy it in a store rather than on internet.
