Rated 5 out of 5 by consumer45 Form and Function
Let me just say this is the first review I've ever done on a product. I've had this coffee maker for only two months, but let me just say this is one of the best coffee makers I have ever owned. I know coffee makers can be defective right out of the box, but so far so good. Other than the fact it makes a great cup of delicious hot coffee, let me just say it was designed with alot of form and function. The Carafe and the filling reservoir are large enough so you can fit your whole hand in to clean it. Not possible with other coffee makers. The coffee always comes out hot. The carafe doesn't spill which is a problem with many rather expensive coffee makers I've had. The filling reservoir doesn't leak and most important it cost me less than twenty bucks. Bottom line, If this coffee maker only lasts me a year it was well worth the cost.
Rated 4 out of 5 by JudyV Great for the price
This brews better than most coffeemakers. For $18 you can't beat it. Does it brew as well as a Cuisinart? No. But I have purchased more expensive coffeemakers that didn't brew as well. From the reviews it seems quality control is hit and miss. My advice...buy it and if it doesn't work well take it back as many times as you need to until you get one that does. I have had mine for 7 months and I am really hard on coffeemakers. It still works fine.
Rated 4 out of 5 by SpendtotheEnd GREAT BASIC COFFEEMAKER
If you are looking for a basic coffee maker with a carafe, this is the one to get. The build feels more sturdy and durable that most in it's class, and it has programmable features as well. Moreover, it brews rich and robust coffee...the coffee is not weak and watery like some. I got this item on sale in our local Walmart for about $5 cheaper than it is online, so I got a great price on it. I bought it as a transitional coffee maker to use when our old one broke until we decided what we wanted to buy as our main coffee maker. Ironically, I have bought and returned several other brands in the interim, and keep falling back on this one. Nothing else, no matter the price, has measured up. So what I purchased to be a backup coffeemaker ended up being my main squeeze. It's also a great value and looks classic and clean on the counter.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Siduri Good value

We have had this coffee maker for years. Everytime my mom comes over she goes on about how much better our coffee tastes! We use whatever coffee is on sale at the time. the only down side it shuts off after 2hrs, a plus or a con depending on your view.
Rated 5 out of 5 by DonnS Great Coffeemaker for the price
Love this. It is the third one I've bought in the last 6 or 7 years. Hard to find a white appliance any more and I wanted white to go with my kitchen. This last for about 2 years with daily use. I don't clean it as regularly should or it would probably last longer but for the price that's OK! Wish it had a water filter but no other problems! Please don't stop carrying this!!!!
Rated 5 out of 5 by David223 Good Coffeemaker
I bought this unit at my local walmart about 4 months ago and it must have been a special or something because it was only $15. It's a darn good coffeemaker. To me the best feature of this machine is it makes and keeps the coffee **HOT** Some machines do not.
In earlier reviews some complained about coffee going all over the place. First of all when you put the filter basket in you MUST snap the lid closed. This holds the coffee basket tight to the caraffe. Make sure the basket and the caraffe are ligned up. It's easy. Also, yes if you pour your coffee too fast into the cup it can spill. I just pour it slower.
I usually get Mr. Coffee machines but this Black & Decker one works great and the coffee is HOTTER than what MR. Coffee makes. I've been doing my own coffee for many years and here is some good advise. No matter what brand of coffee maker you buy, once a month run the vinegar through it.
Rated 2 out of 5 Was damaged
The bottom of the unit was damaged, and it had not been done in shipping nor was the box indicating any damage. The product was bent in at the bottom, and the main part of the unit would not fit back into the bottom. Also the product did not appear to be that substantia--cheaply made. Need not use and will be returning product.
Rated 5 out of 5 by xangran Love it!
We actually own 6 of these: 2 at home, 2 in the camper, 2 at the lake house. Easy to use and makes great coffee. I use the white one and my husband uses the black one. That way we can each have our coffee just like we like it! This particular one was purchased as a birthday present for our son-in-law.
Rated 5 out of 5 by sixgunstcloud Does a great job!
My Mr. Coffee recently stoped working and found this one on sale. Very happy with it.
Rated 5 out of 5 by lamba1 Works great
I bought this Coffee Maker on 3/31/11. The last Black and Decker I had for about 3 years, would leak when you poured the water in and leak when you poured yourself a pot of coffee, and I mean bad! This one doesn't do that at ALL. I like everything about it. And the price in store was great. (though I haven't used the timer yet.) I usually don't write reviews, that's how impressed I am.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Rustycar58 Great Coffeemaker
I bought this coffeemaker when my old one would no longer keep the coffee hot. To my surprise, it has turned out to be one of the best coffeemakers I have ever owned. I have not had any problems with it whatsoever. Easy to program, easy to use. I sometimes have to get up very early, and it's nice to have a fresh pot of coffee waiting for me. The price has dropped since I bought it, so it is a great bargain now.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Costumegirl Best coffee maker I've ever owned
This coffee maker is great. It looks nice, It is easy to use and program. It makes a great pot of coffee! I would highly recommend this to anyone who wants an easy to use coffee maker. It's a steal at less than $20!!!
Rated 4 out of 5 by Berrychamp Overall good product
Love the fact the color is black--doesn't show coffee staining. All the features are good. Wish the see thru fill window was on both sides of tank. MAKE SURE TO CENTER CARAFE ON HOT PLATE WHEN BREWING to avoid a real mess. It would help if B&D emphasized this in the instructions.
Rated 1 out of 5 black & decker
1st time i used this product it did not work for second cup this item only made 1 pot of coffee and does not work...
Rated 1 out of 5 by RLA655 Worst Coffee Maker, I've Ever Owned
This is the Worst Coffee Maker, I've Ever Owned. More water ran down the side of the pot, than ran in the pot..
Rated 5 out of 5 by shammy56 a good product
this coffee maker is a good value for the monies. It does what you need it to do.
Rated 1 out of 5 by coffeedeprived AWFUL COFFEE MAKER!
Terrible!!!! I have had this for three days and have yet to get a pot of coffee that's not full of grounds. I have attempted to modify so I cannot return. I just threw machine in the garbage!
Rated 4 out of 5 by Aoleus Good simple coffeemaker
I decided to start drinking coffee again, and wanted a simple device that's easy to use and clean. This fit the bill, and while I can't comment on the long term durability, three weeks in and I don't have any complaints.
Rated 5 out of 5 by WD4VA Best Budget Buy
If you're looking for a programmable coffeemaker, this is probably the cheapest one you are going to find that works great. No problems with the carafe, always pours cleanly. Simple to setup and use.
I'm on my third one, due to hard water and calcification on the heating elements. I could buy water from the store to keep my hard water from causing this buildup... but it's cheaper to just buy a new machine every year. :-)
Rated 4 out of 5 by Hana50 Great For The Money
Replaced one we had before. Letters wore out on front that have product name. We have hard water in Florida so needed to replace after about a year but we do drink a lot of coffee.
Rated 5 out of 5 by CampinRichSlim333 Great Value and Just As Described
Super easy use and timeless design make this an affordable workhorse for any kitchen, dorm or office. Superb value rivals much more expensive units.
Rated 5 out of 5 by DHeff Arrived fast and unbroken via FedEx. Works great. Great coffee. Pours easily. Priced right.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Tadee It is VERY noisy
This coffee maker brews the coffee great. But when it is in the "warm" mode, it is very noisy. After a few weeks of using it, I thought the noise would disappear, it did not. So, I bought another one (same model) to see if the one I got was defective. Well, the new one is even louder. It makes loud and sharp snapping sounds during the "warm" mode. I am very disappointed. I will have to return both.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Emmilsk smooth
I love this coffee aker. I google searched for the best budget value machine.
I have had other Good Brand ones in the past that eventually wore out. I was attracted to ones with bells + whistle features that got bad reviews for parts not working or hard to clean.
This has worked smoothly, from the start, is simple + nice in appearance.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Kittles45 Great Coffee Maker at a great price!
I have purchased several expensive Bunn coffee makers in the past and all of them have stopped working within a year or so.! I decided to buy a less expensive coffee maker in case it stops working in a year I won't care. However, The Bunn coffee pots only make 10 cups while the Black & Decker makes 12 cups which is even better. I also like the fact that it keeps the coffee hot for 2 hours. I have lots of Bunn paper filters and they work perfectly in the Black and Decker. I purchased the white one and it looks terrific on my counter top. I also like the fact that it is light weight so when we are finished with our coffee for the day I easily move the coffee maker under my cabinets where it is out of the way. It takes a little longer for the coffee to brew than the Bunn but this works ok for my husband and me. I would highly recommend this coffeemaker to others who are tired of paying big bucks with poor results. I remove the container for the grounds before pouring the first cup.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Susie1028 easy to use coffee maker
nice looking..easy to use and programmable...great value
Rated 4 out of 5 by JerJen basic coffee maker with 2 hr shut off
We didn't need programable start times, but could not find basic model with 2 hour automatic shutoff without the programable start time feature. Otherwise easy to use and compact for 12 cup maker
Rated 5 out of 5 by GoombasAuntie Great Product!
I've had this coffeemaker a couple of weeks & I love it! It brews very fast and I love that it's programmable. I have read other reviews about coffee running all over the counter, but I've never had that problem. I just make sure that the carafe is always securely centered. This was a great value for the money! It was already less than $20, and when I got to Walmart, they had it on sale, so it was even less. I am extremely happy and highly recommend this coffeemaker!
