UNDER-THE-COUNTER COFFEEMAKER

 

I LIKE THE IDEA OF A COFFEE MAKER OFF THE CUPBOARD

DO NOT WANT TO CLEAN A MESS OF COFFEE GROUNDS & WATER

Consumer review by:

Waste of Money!

 

We have purchased two of these coffeemakers in the past year. The first one quit working while we were away and we thought that maybe we had a power surge. We purchased another one because the space saving hardware was already in place and we are short...

None

One second it works, the next it doesn't

Not a good product

 

Harder than necessary to install, leaks from many places, clock loses time, controls aren't backlit,pot is hard to keep clean, seems to be only under cabinet mount machine on the market

I really want to love it, but it's difficult!

 

I received this coffee pot for Christmas 2006, and in September 2007 I woke up to find my coffee was not ready. It broke! The display was gone...there was no warning. Of course, I had thrown the box and receipt away, so what to do? Well, while trying...

Space saver; Pours without dripping; automatic timer and shut-off; makes great coffee

Stopped working with NO warning

So bad it almost makes me swear off drinking coffee.

 

This piece of garbage deserves to be taken out back and sledgehammered! I've had it less than 6 months, and in that time a plastic piece broke off surrounding where the water container hooks into the rear section, which my husband in a...

Modern, sleek-looking. Under cabinet design saves on counter space

Parts break easily, weak carafe, buggy electronics, poorly-designed, replacement parts

Consumer review by:

everyone's correct

 

It may brew a decent cup of coffee, but any appliance can do that with a good coffee brand, and someone who knows how much to use. The design stinks, and I don't thing anyone should have to do what others have resorted to - to fix it. B&D should be...

only undercabinet available. This is actually a con because you're stuck with it

basket pops out causing messy overflows while brewing

Consumer review by:

A waste of time and money

 

I have had a B&D spacemaker since the late 80's or early 90's. They have all lasted a reasonable length of time. But not the ODC450. I've had 2 in less that 1 month! Both made a few pots of coffee and then the power just goes off. Since everything else...

saves counter space and doesn't leak like the older models

It should work for more than a week or two

Three correctable flaws to be aware of

 

First, we have had many versions of Black & Decker's "Spacemaker" coffee makers since they first came out ages ago. They have been very good for us. Every new design seems to have a different mounting pattern, however, so that the underside of our ...

Programmable feature and under the counter mounting concept are still valuable selling points

Mounting screws protruding into cabinet is unforgivable ; if pot lip leaks you'll curse it daily
