Pros: Programmable, easy to fill.
Cons: Piece of crap.
While I didn't use this exact model of the VersaBrew, we unfortunately bought the predecessor. It lasted about three months before the hot plate burned out.
It is easy to use, programmable and a nice design. Too bad that Black and Decker does not stand behind their products, judging from the many consumer complaints and lawsuits I found online.
