This coffeemaker has a plastic "No Spill" spout that spills. It doesn't matter if you pour fast, slow, or sideways- it spills. The coffee drips under the spout, down the bottom of the carafe and onto your counter. I've read other reviews where some people don't have this drip problem. They were lucky. Don't chance it. Go with another brand or model, without the plastic "No Spill" spout- that spills.
Everything about this coffee maker is great except for the carafe. The carafe is made of glass and the rim of the carafe is plastic. Whenever the carafe is warm (i.e. full of hot coffee) and I pour it, coffee goes under the plastic rim, runs down the side of the carafe and puddles on the counter/floor/table. It isn't the typical drips that come from puring coffee but a steady stream. I took it back and replaced it with another and had the same problem. This is a horrible design and should not be sold.
Have not had this coffee maker yet 2 months and the hot plate just died. Will not brew at all....returning it today.
I wished I had went online to Walmart.com before I bought this because I would have read that you can't program it! I got home and was so excited that when I got up in the morning I would have coffee waiting...needless to say I had the coffee 5 mins after I programed it because it starts brewing as your programing! Taking it back tomorrow and this time I will spend some time looking at reviews.
I just noticed the other reviews so I guess mine will say the same. It spills all over the place, no matter how you pour it. I'm taking mine back and will not buy a Black & Decker coffee maker. B & D stick to
I just bought my second one after mine just died 1 yr later... so I thought OK it leaks a lot when you pour it.... take a longer time to brew.... but for $29.00 bucks I can live with it.... just plugged in my new one and the power button is jammed ON so you can not turn it off ever. Unless u want to unplug it.... really disappointed. simple quality control should have caught this and eliminated me to have to go back to the store and but another ( different manufacturer) coffee pot! I will not be buying any of their products any time soon. :(
THE POT LEAKS WHEN YOU POUR NO MATTER WHAT. VERY VERY SLOW BREW. TAKES ABOUT 20 MIN TO BREW ONE POT! I BOUGHT THIS FOR THE OFFICE AND AM VERY DISAPPOINTED. I GUESS YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR
Bought this coffee pot about 4 months ago and the carafe leaks as you pour the water and pour coffee into cup. Contacted Black and Decker and requested them to send new carafe, got it and it still leaked everwhere. Today, I made my coffee, turned it on and nothing happened, no heat, no drip, only the clock was on. I do not recommend this coffee pot.
This Coffee maker is a Mess Maker. The design of the caraf spout is such that it pours everywhere but the cup.
Even if you pour real slow and careful it makes a mess.
When you remove the caraf it drips on the hot plate when its suppose to hold coffee in the filter basket.
Everyone who came over to use it has made a mess and were embarrassed. I had to explain its the coffee maker, not them.
My husband got me this for my birthday and while I'm thankful for that, this is the worst purchase we've ever made.
I have to concur with other reviews, the problem is the carafe. We've had this since November 2010 and so far I've requested three replacements (at Black & Decker's expense), since it is under warranty for one full year. These replacements only last about 1 week before the problem starts again. In truth, I could easily request 1 replacement per week but that's too much trouble.
The last time I requested another carafe, I asked for an entirely different one since obviously the carafe for this model is defective by design but they still sent me the same type. So they don't really care.
In truth, the lesson learned here is that Black & Decker is not a brand to be trusted. From food processors to coffee grinders to even power tools, everything we have ever purchased by them has been poor in quality and durability. Nothing B&D we've ever owned has lasted more than 6 months. I'm finished with them.
Okay, so I bought this while standing at Walmart looking at the Mr. Coffee model and wanted the resuable filter basket and water filter, so I opted for B&D. Then I got home and read the review and was mortified. Only when I opened up the box and cleaned everything initially and used it...it worked perfectly. No dripping, no spilling...sturdy enough. The coffee taste was incredible...and the timer was easy as pie. So, unless it breaks tomorrow, this product is wonderful
No matter how many different ways I've tried, I cannot pour coffee without it spilling on the counter!
I bought it for the price but, you get what you pay for!Cheap!
I just bought this yesterday and everything works just fine. I am pleased with it. I read other viewers comments on what went wrong with theirs but I can program it and the carafe works just fine for me. I think it's a great value. Coffee was hot and I am very pleased
After about 6 months the heating plate on this unit died. The item has a two year warranty. I had to cut the plug from the unit and send it to them. The cheapest way to send it to them cost me $1.95 in postage. They also required me to send them a check for $7 or $7.50...I can't remember exactly...I did all this about a week ago...Now I wait. The unit was a little more than $30 new. I have now spent an additional $9...Doh...What is also odd about this model...The pot (carafe) dribbles when you pour from it unless you're extremely careful.
Unless you like cleaning, don't purchase this. No matter how fast or slow you pour the coffee, half of it will end up on the counter or in the floor. It will be going back to the store today.
A nice coffeemaker with a carafe guaranteed to dribble when you pour. I'll never buy another one.
I would avoid this coffee maker. I have one & it drips excessively when you TRY to pour it in you cup. I looked for complaints online & found this is not an isolated problem. I'm throwing this one away.....perfectly good coffee maker if they knew how to design a canter that will pour correctly.
Bought this coffee maker 2 years ago. Within 11 months the heating element died and stopped brewing. Manufacturer sent me a new one. Have had this one for less than a year and the heating element died on this one. Will never buy a Black & Decker coffee maker again!
I can't see all the complaints people previously wrote about. This is a GREAT coffee machine for the price. It does NOT spill at all which i was worried that it would after reading all the bad reviews..but turns out this coffee pot is spill proof. I love that it has a programmable timer so now i no longer have to wake up and start coffee its already done for me. Also the quality of the coffee is definitely better. Overall this is an excellent coffee maker for the price and i would definitely recommend this to anyone who is look for a GREAT coffee maker.
If you don't have the cash for an expensive coffee maker this one is Great! It has all of the features I was looking for and then some. No need for filters! It's built in. Hard water? Not a problem with the water filtering system. Great bargin and NO I do not work for walmart!!
