Comment:
I agree with the other negative reviews. Target obviously doesn't consider consumers when offering an inferior appliance. The coffee maker is extremely difficult to use. It makes weak coffee no matter how much coffee vs the amount of water required. It is nearly impossible to read the ridiculous auto-brew clock setting against the monitone background. You need direct overhead lighting in order to see the water level inside the reservoir. The carafe does not separate from the lid which makes it impossible to sterilize in the dishwasher. There is constant leaking between the coffee basket and the carafe and always a puddle forming beneath the carafe long after the brewing is complete and the grounds removed. This is without a doubt the most inferior small kitchen appliance that Black and Decker has had the audacity to put on the market. I rate it as a piece of JUNK! It's destined for the next garage sale.
How long have you owned it:
One-to-three months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
Haven't had any of the issues that some other reviewers have seen. Doesn't leak/drip. Makes strong enough coffee that is hot enough. We usually make at least 5 cups, so I can't comment on the 1-4 cup feature.
