The best part about waking up!

 

Love this coffee maker. It's programmable so I don't have to make coffee every morning while I am 1/2 awake. Set it and forget it and wake up to the smell of fresh coffee!! Clean uo is easy and I like the fact that its a 10 cup, not a 12 cup. Just my...

Overall not all bad

 

I bought this coffee maker cause my husband started drinking it like crazy and I didnt want to keep shelling out the money at DD or *bucks.  The features are nice, but the top lid seems a bit cheap. Not bad since Im the one who makes the coffee. If...

Worked Good But Replacement Carafes are Difficult to Find

 

I loved this unit and got it for a great price. My fiance was working at Kohl's and she got the associate discount in addition to it being on sale. I really loved the timer feature. I would set it the night before for the time I am usually in the ...

Timer, pause and serve, automatic shut off

Replacement carafes are impossible to find

Warranty Replacement

 

Black & Decker sent me this model as a warranty replacement for a DCM2500 that only lasted 6 months. They claimed they didn't have any DCM2500's to send. I didn't believe them.

Looks nice and brews coffee well

Sneak a cup doesn't work well. Too easy to change clock time

Consumer review by:

Likes nice but not quite perfect.

 

After purchasing this coffee maker for $20 at Ocean Lots, I was feeling pretty content. It looked good and had a timer which was easy to use. All was well until it spilled all over my counter the first two times I used it (due to the fact that the...

Looks good, timer easy to use

Coffee not hot, pot is hard to clean, burner is hard to clean, easy spillage

Works as Well as Any Other I Have Had

 

We have had a high quality Krups coffee maker and many others over the years. Every one has developed leaks after a few years, even Krups. The coffee does not seem to taste any better no matter how much we have spent, but we have not tried the ones ...

Inexpensive, looks nice on the counter, makes pretty good coffee

Hard to fill, filter basket is tricky to put back, water level hard to see

it doesn't brew as good or stay as hot as I wish

 

Our coffee maker wore out and we were used to a good hot cup of coffee. I bought the coffee maker for 29.99 which was a quick purchase. I think for the way I enjoy coffee so much this was a bit disappointing. The coffee isn't as hot as the old coffee...

brews quick enough and the black color is attractive

thin glass and not a very solidly made product. Seems flimsy
