Product Description

Amazon.com

Blessed with a carafe that pours without dripping, a water filter, and touchpad electronic controls, this coffeemaker provides safety, convenience, and a host of options for brewing 12 5-ounce cups at once. The carafe is calibrated for both filling the reservoir properly and for judging the amount of brewed coffee and the water filter improves taste by reducing chlorine. The control panel provides a 24-hour clock/timer for brewing "wake-up" coffee and permits the nonstick warming plate's temperature to be set as desired.

Other features include a calibrated window on each side for monitoring the water reservoir's level, a hinged cover that flips back to reveal both reservoir and coffee filter, and cord storage. The carafe has a comfortable handle and a guard to protect the knuckles. The coffeemaker measures 7-3/4 inches wide, 12-1/2 inches high, and 10-1/4 inches deep. --Fred Brack

I highly recommend this coffee maker.

The clock didn't work (the time display showed the wrong time when checked some hours after being set; this kept happening).

The plastic rim around the top of the glass carafe fills with coffee and pours out on the counter as you pour into your cup.

We all know the problem coffee makers. They have mysterious water leaks, they don't drip into the carafe correctly, the filter basket overflows if it isn't perfectly in place.
Black and Decker (B&D) has designed a coffee maker that is inexpensive and simply eliminates those problems...
How I know:
I got this coffee maker for the office. We brew at least three 12-cup pots a day. We've done about 100 pots WITHOUT A SPILL OR LEAK. I highly recommend this machine.
What I know:
The "Perfect Pour Carafe" is great. B&D just gave it a wider spout! What a concept! You wouldn't think a handle makes a big difference, but when you're carrying 12-cups-worth of water or coffee, you will suddenly appreciate this excellent handle. This carafe even looks nice.
The filter basket does not swing out, nor must you hold it in one hand while you add the coffee. Swing-out baskets are the ones that overflow when you don't close them perfectly, and slide-out removable baskets leave only one hand for the scooping chores. This basket can be removed to dump the old grounds, but is then replaced in the machine so both hands are free.
That is because the lid opens up to expose the filter basket and the unobstructed, large water resevoir. No careful aiming or water splashing off of useless plastic grates when filling. There is a strange looking, hinged "shower head" that delivers the hot water to the filter basket. It is simple in design and works well.
The lid closes securely and pins down the removable filter basket to further eliminate human error in basket positioning.
Even the "sneak a cup" mechanism is simple and effective. It is simply a rubber stopper on a simple lever.

I've seen some negative reviews on here of this coffeemaker, and I felt that I should write a review of a positive experience to give some perspective.
I've had this coffeemaker for about a year and a half, and I don't have any complaints. No parts have broken, the clock is accurate, the timer still functions, I still wake up every morning to a nice fresh pot of coffee. The lip of the pot is well formed, so that you never spill when you're pouring a cup. These are all simple things, but coffee is a simple thing. If you don't notice your coffeemaker, that means that it was designed well. This is an inexpensive, reliable coffee machine.
In fact, I've even abused the little guy. I like to make Thai iced tea, but I'm also too lazy to use a teapot, so I'll run my tea through it three or four times until it's dark enough, and it still holds up like a champ.
Here are some of the convenient features:
- Water window on the side, so you can see how much water you're putting in without having to measure using the pot.
- Timer feature so you can wake up to pre-brewed coffee without waiting.
- Sturdy, elegant pot design. The pot can be put in the dishwasher with no problems, and the large handle means you'll never drop it.
- Auto-off feature that turns the heating element off after two hours. (Another reviewer mentioned that there was no auto-off, which is incorrect)
- Large capacity scales well. By this, I mean that it makes two cups of coffee just as easily as it makes 12 cups, so it's good for a morning alone, or if you want a lot of coffee for several people.
The reason I didn't give it a five is that there are a few minor drawbacks:
- It's a little difficult to clean, because of the design of the pot and the maker itself.

My number one pet peeve with coffee makers is overflow from malfunctioning drip baskets when the coffee pot does not get seated well into the burner area. I was ready for this when I purchased this moderately priced coffee maker and was pleasantly surprised when this didn't seem to be a problem after several days. Then it happened...and it turned out not to be the coffee pot problem at all...it is the filter basket on this little gem that gets out of whack. If it gets bumped *just a smidge* it will fail to seat itself down into the well and release the drip valve and the next thing you know you have coffee all over your counter. First time it happened I thought it must have been a fluke, but no...it's happened three times now and this pot is going into the trash. The last thing I need to be doing is spending my morning mopping up coffee and grounds "before" I've had that first dose of caffiene.

Now we know why this coffee maker was rated so highly (a "best buy") by THE respected consumer magazine. Not only does it brew a flavorful cup of coffee at just the right strength (following their recommended one scoop of coffee per two cups), but the unit has the most wanted features of coffee makers without spending two-to-three times the price. The keep-hot plate auto-shutoff, and digital clock timer that allows one to setup the pot the night before and awake to freshly brewed coffee, is convenience at the utmost. The programming (including just setting the correct time, that displays in very bright red LED numbers) was a snap. (We also did buy separately a permanent gold filter, which fits perfectly.)
While we have seen a number of complaints from other reviewers about the quality of this item, so far in several months of daily use we are completely satisfied. Stay tuned.
