Get a space saver coffeemaker if you stays in an area smaller than 100 square feet, are fretting where to put your microwave oven and basically are "hooking" your food instead of leaving it on the kitchen top.
Yes, you get the idea. If you are having space constraint, yet want to brew your own coffee daily, then you do not to look else where, your only solution would be black & decker spacemaker. For this article, I would be using the the black & decker ODC 405.
The most important thing about the black and decker ODC 405 is the its ability to "saves" space. It does this by allowing you to install it under your counter. With everything hidden under the counter, it saves you the kitchen top space -thus the name black & decker space maker.
Of course, there are many makes of space saver coffee maker from black & decker and I have chosen this basically because of its "look and feel", I like the contemporary and simple zen design of this coffee maker.
In terms of operation, the one thing that I am very biased is thermal carafe. And this ODC 405, thankfully comes with one. Personally, I would try to avoid coffee makers without a thermal carafe unless this coffee maker comes with other very competitive features.
This is because, warming plates tend to burn the coffee after a while, then I also do not enjoy stale coffee. So, having a thermal carafe allows me to have fresh and hot coffee for up to 4 hours.
Another feature that comes with this Black and decker ODC 405 is the "sneak a cup" function, that allows one to interrupt the brewing and get a cup of coffee even before the brewing cycle is complete. A definite for anyone "desperate" for coffee in the morning.
Of course, as with most coffee machine, this space saver coffee maker comes with 24 hour programmable timer that allows you to program and wake up to a fresh cup of coffee!
I could go on about its water reservoir and brew basket, but I guess the main advantage of this black and decker is its ability to be a space saver, giving you space to accommodate the rest of your household stuff...
