I love my Black and Decker

 

I have owned two of these units. We wore out the first one, and replaced it with an identical one (except it didn't have a clock and timer, not a big deal). It brews great coffee, keeps it warm for hours (even overnight), and is a snap to clean. The...

Hot Stuff Inside

 

The Braun KF-510 is the almost the exact same coffee maker as the more expensive Braun KF-580. The 510 does not include a timer, but every other option is identical. I do not need the timer and see it as one more thing that can break at 5 a.m. ...

Great design, small foot print, padded handle, extra hot coffee

Disabled swing-out coffee basket due to plastic piece breaking easily

A Great Coffee Maker

Keeps coffee fresh and hot, removable pieces make it easy to clean.

The pot is kind of small, carafe doesn't go in the dishwasher.

BE CAREFUL!!

 

I bought this coffee maker about a year ago, and thought it was the best thing since sliced bread. It was quick, kept my coffee hot for hours, automatically shut off after brewing, and I could take it out on the porch in the morning and enjoy reading...

stylish, auto shut-off, keeps hot for approx 4 hrs

expensive, not very durable

The Case of the Perfect Coffee Maker

 

It was a Monday. I was sitting in my office, pondering the bad taste in my mouth. Was it life itself that had lost its flavor? Or was it just the coffee, boiled down to a sludge as thick and bitter as most men's souls? I started to get up to go...

Brews coffee directly into the carafe ; coffee stays hot but doesn't "cook ; absence of hot plate lessens fire hazard

None
