I've had my Black and Decker 12-cup Programmable Coffee Maker for over two years now and I use it multiple times everyday. I'm a coffee fanatic and got this as a housewarming gift from my father-in-law when we bought our house over two years ago. It's held up this whole time and definitely gets it share of wear and tear. It's very durable, easy to clean, and it's very easy to use. It's an everyday, standard coffee maker, but it's been my life saver for the time I've had it. I drink coffee all day, everyday and it really comes through for the job. There's limited functions because it's not a "fancy" coffee maker, but it certainly does the big important job that I need it to do. I'd recommend this for occasional coffee drinkers to people like me who can't function without their cup of Joe. It's inexpensive, easy to find in stores and online, and it's a trusted brand known by almost everyone. Fantastic product and I highly recommend it!
