This BLACK+DECKER Select-A-Size Easy Dial Programmable Coffee Maker, Stainless Steel/Black, CM4200S was my very first full size coffee pot that didn't use kcups. I wasn't sure what to expect, but I admit I do like having to make coffee just once and be able to have an easy second cup. I like that this can be programmed and can be measured by the cup. It's stylish and easy to use. The best part was the coffee tastes great, too!
