Me and my coffee maker.

By The G man from California Costa Mesa United States on 10/04/2015

Let's start off with the fact that I am a taxi driver. I have no real set schedule but whenever I wake up I go over to an area of witch I live. I call it my coffee station. My Black, Black and Decker coffee maker sits on a table which I had to make because nothing else looked right so I had to make my own table made of oak from scraps I found in yard sales. On that there is containers of coffee too sugar stirring implements and a multicolored green, red, brown, beige geometrically designed tablecloth that's just a little too small which makes it look kind of sexy. I have to admit it is kind of a focus point but some people actually asked me is that where I pray. My friends like to go over there and make coffee or tea. And all because of the coffee maker that you made.

Horrible!!!

By Anonymous from Primm Springs, TN, United States on 08/15/2015


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

After having this a year, I am fed up with it! First off, when you use the pot to pour water in the reservoir, the water runs down the front and onto the floor. I tried tilting it and even pouring it slower. It keeps on running down the front. Honestly, about 75% of the time. You can get lucky now and then. Second, you really, really, really have to make sure the pot's tip, on the top, rests perfectly under the spring loaded plunder on the bottom of the coffee basket. You can't just put it under and walk off. It will cause the basket to fill with water as the plunger isn't pushed up by the pot's entrance way. If you were thinking of getting this one, maybe because of the price, DON'T DO IT!!!! Find another one or spend a few more bucks on a better design. I HATE this machine!!!!!!

Great coffee every time!!

By RetiredVerizon from New Jersey, USA on 03/19/2015


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Purchased August 2014 because of appearance & cost, didn't need programable feature. I have not had any problem with leakage such as the reviews I have read here. I pour my water directly in the water trough, using the measurements on there. Never considered using the carafe as a measuring cup. I have never had any spilled coffee once its brewed. Not sure what I'm doing that others are not. It has worked fine every day, sometimes twice a day!! Would defintely recommend & purchase again. Model # DLX 1050B

Brews up a big mess each time

By MarkNM from Undisclosed on 03/05/2015


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I've had this model only 3 days and every morning I've walked into the kitchen with coffee grounds all over the basket, in the carafe, on the counter--you name it. I seem to recall having this problem over 20 years ago and I believe I removed the basket drip blocking item that is used to plug it up if you want to "sneak a cup". I guess I'll have to try that again, but it really shouldn't have to come down to this, honestly. This model is more laborious than it is worth just to brew coffee. I bought Black and Decker because the last one was a good model, not like this one and that last model lasted 20 years until the bottom eventually started to leak overnight. This one does not appear to be a promising purchase at all. I will most likely end up changing brands if removing the drip basket plugging device does not work

Do not purchase

By Luvmyjoe from Pittsburgh, PA, USA on 02/07/2015


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

This is the worst coffee maker EVER! The coating on the warmer is already wearing off and we have only had it for approximately 2 months. The filter system has already clogged and coffee grinds went into the water reservoir. This coffee maker is just poorly designed. We are returning it!

Makes coffee.

By Frogfarmer from Doniphan, MO 63935, USA on 01/23/2015


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I received this coffee maker as a gift and am quite happy with it with one exception. The display is not back-lit which makes it very hard to see the screen, even in good light. I have to use a small flashlight in order to set the clock or timer and to see for sure that the delay brew is on or off and to see the strong indicator.

HORRIBLE

By Horriblefeelingabouthis from Racine, WI on 01/20/2015


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

This is the worst maker I ever had in my life. I bought this two months ago and from the very first day there were issues. The coffee grounds some how kept getting pushed in with the water. It would only brew half a pot and if you wanted a whole pot you had to hold the carafe manually. After about a week the hot water some how caused the carafe to break so I had to purchase another one of these. Then the best part....the coffee some how started coming out from under neath the whole maker itself. This kept happening once the pot brewed about a half of carafe. Finally today I woke up to a maker that was completely fried because this time the coffee got all over the maker and fried the inside. I would have never expected this from Black and Decker. To top it off....I never signed up for the warranty because I thought " ehhhh what could go wrong with a coffee maker". With my next NON Black and Decker pot I will never make that mistake again!

Love the features

By Babe from Labadieville, LA, USA on 01/18/2015


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I love my B&D but I'm not liking the way it doesn't keep the time, it's kinda hard to set it to go off at a certain time if the clock is gonna malfunction. At first I thought my husband was touching the clock when he made coffee but one weekend he wasn't home & it did the same thing. We've also figured out you have to put the coffee basket in place just right b/c if not it's gonna run over, that's not good. Please work on these things to make your products better.

disappointing

By poor from North Carolina, USA on 01/04/2015


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Received this coffee maker as a Birthday Gift and was excited, washed it out and make my 1st pot which was so horrible with a taste and smell of plastic I had to dump the entire pot out. Washed and scrubbed it again and make another pot which was no better. The clock was nice but cant see it because it doesn't light up and on day 2 this coffee pot stopped working all together? Very disappointed and now have to return and find another.. Wouldn't recommend this to anyone!!

junk

By adam from Summit, SD, USA on 12/28/2014


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Ive had this for two days and now realize i wasted my money. Like most others are saying, the water hardly drips into the pot and it overflows and makes a big mess. Customer service suggested i clean it. Well i did clean it before i made my first pot. Ive made 3 pots now. All 3 have overflowed. Ive already quit buying black and decker power tools because they are junk, i guess now im done buying anything made by black and decker. Im definitely not happy. And on top of that the coffee gets t9o hot and burns it within an hour. Never again.

Works great, reliable, inexpensive

By Swegnson from South Salem, NY 10590, USA on 12/15/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

We replaced another brand of coffee maker with this unit and have been very glad we did. The heating tray of this unit keeps the coffee much warmer than the other unit. Also the finish on the heating tray has lasted much better; because you are daily taking the carafe out and putting it back in the tray is prone to scratch; this unit has held up well. There are not a lot of features on this unit, which suits us just fine. The programmable feature does work great (make sure the clock is set properly). And this unit makes great coffee. We were glad we had not read the negative reviews on this site before purchasing. We have had a great experience.

Needs improvement

By NeedCoffee from Pa on 11/29/2014


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Have been a long time fan of Black & Decker under the counter coffee makers - but too much bad press about the last model - did not try - recently purchased the BCM1410B over a MR Coffee because of it being a Blk & Decker and liked the looks - however the display for clock does not light up so basically useless - also have issues with pouring - usually have a mess ! Was going to return unit but it does turn out a good cup of coffee so decided to keep till had time to find something better. Maybe another undercounter unit will appear. Am not impressed with this unit - you can do better

By coffee123 from Starr,SC on 11/28/2014


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

You think when you buy a name brand coffee maker that it is a good one, but that's not so. There is no light at the Display, very hard to see, the coffee does not stay hot and when you fill up the carafe with water and pour it into the coffee maker, water goes everywhere. Not a good buy !

By KPDH from IL on 11/22/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Returned another Name Brand coffee maker because clock was malfunctioning and purchased this one for a better price. So far works great and coffee is excellent--only had for 1 day :) Pros: Like the fact that the tube in the water well is clear so I can be sure that it is clean. It was not in my previous unit Slimmer than the Name Brand maker I returned and fits counter well Illuminated digital clock, so I can read it from across the room and light to let me know I set the Timer. CON: Previous maker had water view window on both sides. Made it more adaptable for counter positioning. Would like to see that feature on future B & D Coffee Makers in this price range. Thanks!

I would never buy this again

By Meomiah from Kansas City, MO, USA on 10/07/2014


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I bought this for a economical coffee pot for my office at work. I share my coffee with neighboring co workers so I wanted a big 12 cup pot. The smell when I first got it was strong of plastic or some chemical. It stayed well into the first few pots of coffee and I still smell it from time to time. Not sure if I have adjusted to it or if its actually gone. Also have had it over flow out of the top of the machine at least 4-5 times in the month and a half I have owned it. Coffee grounds everywhere all over my counter top, into the water reservoir, down inside the pot. Huge mess. I thought I was just over filling so I cut back to making 10 cups at a time and still have to watch it carefully. The programming works, but who wants to risk coming in to a huge coffee disaster?

No Coffee Scoop.

By coffee4me from Wisconsin, USA on 10/02/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I received one as a house warming gift along with filters and coffee. Couldn't wait to brew my first pot only to find it didn't come with a coffee scoop. The person who gave it to me was equally surprised saying they've never bought one that didn't come with one. So I have to wait to try it until I get a scoop.

Very disappointed.

By coffee101 from Hurst, Texas on 09/08/2014


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I recently purchased this coffee maker at a local store. The clock display light doesn't work. The coffee is never hot enough and even though it stays on for 2 hours, it is not hot enough to be able to add any creamer or milk. I have always relied on Black & Decker for a quality product. I have a toaster oven and previous coffee makers that were real winners. I don't think this coffee maker lives up to your standards or mine.

Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I have had two of these coffee makers now... I bought my current one to replace one that simply stopped working less than 6 months ago and now the new one has stopped working as well. The light comes on and says its working but no coffee ever comes out... I guess this is what I get for opting for the inexpensive one. I will not be buying another black and decker product. And I will forewarn all my friends before they buy one too.

Buyer Beware!

By Doris from Winston-Salem, NC, USA on 08/17/2014


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I have used Black and Decker coffee pots for years and have always been extremely happy with them. Last month my old faithful coffee pot died. Off to the store to replace it the next day. I was delighted to find the exact model I had been currently using. My delight did not last long. At least 50% of the time the coffee will not flow through to the pot and I have a gigantic mess to clean up. Now I must admit that there was a small note saying that the pot must be under the basket to prevent overflow, well, after 20 plus years of making coffee I certainly know where to put the carafe. I am so disgusted with this appliance that is going in the trash! I will have to go with another company that will at least test their products before selling them to the public.

Great appliance but not the right pot!

By Susie from Little Rock, AR, USA on 08/10/2014


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

First, please let me state that I love your coffeemakers. I have purchased at least a dozen in the past 7 years. However, the coffeemaker that I want has the "Perfect Pour" carafe, and yes it makes a huge difference in the ease of filling and then pouring coffee! Both of the recently purchased models advertised the Perfect Pour carafe on the website so I ordered them. Not so. When I opened the box, the first thing I checked was the pot. Bummer. Now I need to send them back for a refund. I would very much appreciate someone contacting me so that I can order the correct model. I need at least two. Thanks so much!!

This product works well overall with one flaw.

By Ijustwantacupofcoffee from Newark, NJ on 08/04/2014


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

This product works well overall, but has one flaw. I almost always have grinds that settle in the pot. When I noticed this, I had already purchased filters that were a little short. So I put those away and purchased some that were taller. The grinds still come into the pot. When I take the basket out to wash it, that is when I notice how the grinds have risen to the top of the filter and over. This is not good when you are sipping on your coffee and have to contend with grinds in your cup and mouth. I might add that this occurs no matter how much coffee I put into the basket. My usual amount is enough for two cups a day. Unhappy Customer!

Bottom Line:

This is the second coffee maker of the same type. The first one had an electrical problem and would not turn on. The second one came on OK, but the LCD screen is not back lite and due to the angle of the screen I have to get down on my knees to see the digits on the screen. So I am going to return it tomorrow and most likely look at a different brand, but before asking a lot of questions.

Carafe extremely thin and fragile

By MadCoffeeMaker from Sarasota, FL on 06/22/2014


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I purchased this coffee pot three weeks ago. It functions fine, but while rinsing the carafe I tapped it on the faucet and it broke into about six pieces. The problem was that it wasn't a strong tap, it just barely tapped the faucet and shattered. Buy a different one with a sturdier carafe.

Great Concept, Terrible Execution

By JB12 from Copperas Cove, TX on 05/11/2014


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I loved this coffee maker, until I actually tried to use it. The brew timer is a great option, I like the automatic shutoff, and the controls are simple and easy to use. The problem is when you actually try to have a cup of coffee. The carafe that comes with this model is by far the worst design I have ever seen. You end up spilling almost as much as you pour into your cup. I've started pouring it over the sink just so I don't spill it all over my counters or the floor. I'm breaking down and getting a new carafe, but if I still had the box I would take this model back. Black & Decker should probably do some testing with their products next time instead of just rolling it out and letting the public deal with the shortcomings.

Don't Waste Your Money

By JB12 from Copperas Cove, TX on 05/11/2014


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Initially I liked this product. The automatic brew timer is a great option, I like the automatic shutoff too, and the controls are simple to use. The problem comes in when you actually try to have a cup of coffee. The carafe that comes with this model is by far the worst design I have ever seen. The design for the pour spout is laughable, and you end up spilling almost as much as you pour into your cup. I've started pouring mine over the sink; it's really that bad. I will purchasing a new carafe for my maker, but if I still had the box I would simply take it back. Don't waste your money on this one. Black & Decker should probably do some testing next time instead of just pushing product out to the customer.

Good coffee maker but dribbles

By washworks900 from Pittsburgh, PA, USA on 04/15/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I purchased this for a Laundromat, I know it is for consumer use not industrial or commercial use. It is used everyday and has been working great. Definitely a great value for the cost. The only problem with it is the carafe dribbles when it is filled to the 12 cup level.

undrinkable coffee

By JavaLover from Burlington, VT, USA on 04/05/2014


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I purchased this coffee maker one month ago and returned it today.Beware: there is a distinct smell and taste of plastic in every cup brewed! The coffee tastes and smells like the product of cleaning the coffee maker. Not only does it produce the foulest tasting coffee, I have serious doubts about the safety of any product that seems to be leaching the smell of plastic into the air and the taste of plastic into something I am consuming. On another note, the display needs a backlight. The design, otherwise, is quite nice.

By psychoticneurotic from Nashville, TN, USA on 03/20/2014


Bottom Line:

"... plus the no-mess serving of our Perfect Pour carafe." They need to find out who tested this product, and fire them immediately! The pot design is flawed... when you pour, you end up with more coffee on the counter than in your cup.

This is a very good product does and puts out the same as those "high" priced models. Although there is no backlit clock light and I suspect it's because of the price, but that not to say the other model the cm2020R might have one.

BEWARE: Good while it worked - didn't work long

By DisappointedwBD from Mississippi, USA on 03/17/2014


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Bought the black version 30 Jan 2014 and used it for the first time on 31 Jan 2014. It died on 14 Mar 2014. Maybe it wasn't the most expensive coffee maker on the market, but I do expect more from a brand name like Black and Decker. If this is the expected lifetime of a B&D coffee maker, I will never again buy a B&D appliance of any type. After talking to the warranty company, and choosing not to get a replacement (which might last as short a time), we may eventually get a refund after cutting off the plug and mailing it to them. No estimated date for us to receive the refund.

it does a great job

By ladyblue from Greenville IL on 03/14/2014


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This pot makes great coffee, and is what I was looking for, but there is one outstanding problem I've had with it. When you open the lid to pour water in, the condensation on the inside of the lid runs down the back of the pot onto the counter. [And the lid needs to opened all the way to get the water in.] Not sure why it was designed this way but it needs to be changed somehow so that doesn't happen.

This coffee maker is not for left handers

By Lefty from Florida on 03/10/2014


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

The carafe with this coffee maker only has water level markings on one side. Not good for a left hander like me. If I had known, I would have picked another model. My previous coffee maker had markings on both sides of the carafe.

Can't pour without spillage.

By pak from new york on 09/12/2012


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

You cannot pour from this coffee pot, fast or slow, without the coffee spilling out down the pot onto your counter. Also, the handle is much too wide for smaller hands. I have bigger hands, and it's still very awkward. The only good thing about this pot is that it is easy to program. Would never buy another one.

Review for DCM2160B

By Inspector G from Regina, Sask on 09/12/2012


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Coffee pot works great, except that it appears the carafe that came with it was never tested to see if it could pour liquid, without spilling it. I think if I take 30 seconds to fill a cup, I could probably pour a cup without spilling coffee. Unfortunately I don't have that much time to pour a cup of coffee. I have had it for while, but just never got around to contact you about it. It really is a terrible carable(the coffee maker is great otherwise.)

The Worst Coffee Pot I have ever owned!

By Memex9 from Florida on 09/10/2012


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Without a doubt, this is the worst coffee pot I have ever owned. I hate the two hour cut off switch, but I could live with just that. Its the Carafe. I cannot pour a cup of coffee without it leaking all over the counter. I have to keep a towel there to soak up the spillage! I have tried all ways to pour, slow, fast, a little at a..time it matters not!!!! I am sick of coffee going everywhere every time I pour a cup of coffee. Now let me add here, I have asked everyone that comes to my house............. from grandchildren to my neigbor, my son, my daughter,......... to pour the coffee...and it is the same result. So the fault is not with me, but the design. Horrible.....I am ready to throw this pot away and go buy something else. Terrible!

Poor design on the carafe

By Flusterated2 from michigan on 09/10/2012


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I bought this coffee pot and everything is great except the carafe. We could not pour a cup of coffee without it going all over the place. We took it back because we thought the carafe leaked. The new one did the same thing. Because we were in need of a coffee pot and had no other choices, we have kept it. This is our summerr home and we have a lot of guests and every day I have to listen to the complaining. You need paper towels to soak up the mess. The spout is wide across not coming to a point and I think that is the problem. Have an old one at home and it works fine.

By Mindy from Chicago, IL on 09/03/2012

I have used this coffee maker for 8 months without trouble, but all of a sudden, the thermostat has stopped working. I know the electrical outlet is good because the light goes on in the base of the unit, but it will not heat up the coffee water. Very poor manufactured product.

Very disappointed

By DB from South Carolina on 09/01/2012


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I purchased the Black & Decker over Mr. Coffee because of my previous experiences with B&D. I should have read store reviews prior to purchase. The carafe spills when pouring, so pouring must be done over the sink (very difficult for my disabled husband!). Now 15 days after purchase, the timer no longer works. I will attempt to contact B&D for replacement, but I am not very hopeful

By coffee addict from Minnesota on 08/21/2012


Bottom Line:

My complaint is not how the machine works but the pot itself. The design is very poor. It is not possible to pour the finished coffee without having a towel on the counter to catch all the coffee that runs down the side of the pot while I am trying to fill a thermos or pour a cup of coffee. I am very dissapointed in the way the pot is designed.

I have had this coffee pot less than two months and it is not working. The water does not leave the reservoir. It just starts steaming the water and not brewing the coffee. After about 3 minutes the water in the reservoir is hot and I have no coffee brewed in the pot. I am very disappointed in this product.

Terrific brewer

By TrainGuy from Undisclosed on 07/19/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

In the past 39 years, my wife and I have had just about every brand of coffee maker and this one is by far the best. The carafe definitely does not drip when pouring and is probably the largest 12 cup capacity on the market. The temperature setting is just right so it doesn't have that scalding smell or taste. The design is sleek and clean with easy time settings. You use the basic flat-bottom filters, which are the least expensive. Brewing is fast. The price is low when compared to other brands, especially for its quality, features, and performance.

Very Poor Carafe

By JTawg from Collingwood, Ontario, Canada on 07/10/2012


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

The "perfect pour" carafe should be called the perfect POOR carafe. Every pour after the very first one runs down the outside of the carafe and onto the counter or floor. The problem is somebody thought it made sense to have a lip running around the entire inside if the carafe to catch the coffee coming out and cause it to pool inside that lip. Terrible design.

Not So Easy

By BB from WY on 06/28/2012


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I have two suggestions for upgrading this coffee maker. The first is to create a CLEARer view water window (maybe with a small float inside) so that the water level can be viewed EASILY. Even in the best light conditions, I find it frustrating because I can not see it and end up having to measure the water instead of just pouring it into the water reserve. The second feature that I would upgrade is the loud beep that let's us know it is ready. It would be ideal if this could be disabled by choice.

bad hot plate

By NeedCoffee73 from Ellensburg, WA on 06/08/2012


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I have used this coffee maker (DCM2160B) for about a year now. Within a short time (1-2 months) the hot plate began to chip. Basically the surface coating began to peal off of it. This has become such a mess that I have given up on it. The cost of warranty repair (sending it to an authorized repair location) doesn't seem worth the bother. Also, it is impossible to pour from the carafe without it dripping on the counter (or leg or floor ...). The top doesn't seem to be contoured properly. As for the programmable features, they worked just as they were expected to work. The pouring drip and the pealing hot plate are deal breakers, though. I will doubtless look for a different brand to replace it.

This is the second black and decker coffee maker I have purchased and both times the carafe leaks as you pour it.

This product has several faults

By Backcountry boy from Oregon on 06/01/2012


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

My Bunn quit after 25 years of great service. I bought this B&D product and was disappointed that it had to be drawn out from under kitchen cabinets before it could be filled with water. The tank water quantity was almost unreadable and required jigglring the water to read it. using a flashlight. The clock is unreadable unless bending over to be just in front of it. Same for the control buttons. I really don't buy a coffee maker for the time. The side water gauage should somehow be backlit so as to be readable. Another Bunn is probably in the works but I won't be around many more years to enjoy it. (age 81)

While most of the features work as advertised, the caraffe design is such that coffee spills everywhere when pouring. We pour over the sink, but the coffee has run down the outside of the caraffe -- it's just a huge mess every morning. A total waste for us that has to be replaced.

More coffee on the counter than in your cup....

By KW from Oregon on 04/03/2012


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Nice little brewer, but the carafe is absolutely worthless! It's very poorly designed, with a spout that's way too small to handle any kind of volume. Unless you hold the carafe just right and pour VERY SLOWLY, any liquids inside will spill over on either side of the spout and all over the counter and floor. We don't even try and pour with this thing anywhere except over the sink. Really BAD design!

NOTE: After the coffee is brewed, I have to pour a cup over the sink because again the pot is leaking all over my counter top and floor only now with very HOT coffee. THE DESIGN OF THE POT ON THIS COFFEE MAKER is poor.The only coffee makers I have ever purchased are B&D If this is what they are going to bring to the market do I need to look at a different brand ???

Yummy plastic-flavoured coffee!

By plastic coffee from Undisclosed on 03/15/2012


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

If you like plastic-tasting coffee, this product is perfect for you! In an effort to eliminate the taste, we've cycled water, vinegar, and lemon juice through it at least 30 times. It may be marginally better than the first pot of coffee, but there's still a distinct plastic flavour to my otherwise much-loved morning cup of coffee. Our previous coffee maker lasted for many years. Perhaps all coffee makers suffer from the same plastic taste, and I simply don't remember our previous experience - but this is really gross. It shouldn't take more than a month's worth of cycles to get rid of the taste!

Disappointed and unhappy with product longevity

By Richlandbrewer from Richland, MI on 02/03/2012


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

In the last two years we have purchased (2) B&D 12 Cup Programmable Coffeemakers; Model DCM100B. Each unit ran great for about a year and then suddenly, without warning, would not brew the coffee. The power was definitely on to the unit; the clock worked fine, however, neither the instant on nor the auto on would kick in to brew coffee. We stuck to the recommended cleaning schedule for each unit. That our units were purchased over a year apart and had the exact same problem tells me this product has quality issues. I'm not happy. We have given up on B&D for coffee makers. We purchased based on brand name and found that really meant nothing as related to this particular product. I see the manufacture of this item was outsourced to overseas. Maybe if this item was made here in the USA I wouldn't be experiencing this quality issue and brand name (Black & Decker) disappointment.

Great machine but can't pour without dripping

By Brenda from Ohio on 01/26/2012


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

We had a previous Black and Decker model for several years and the burner finally stopped. We purchased this model because of our experience with the last one but we are disappointed with this one. You can't pour a cup from the carafe without having an almost equal amount of coffee stream down the side of the carafe. You can try to pour fast, pour slow, tip high, barely tip... it doesn't matter. You end up with coffee all over the counter, down the side of the cup and unless you take the time to get towels to wipe off the carafe (and time is not what we have going out the door to drop off for school and get to work on time) , the burner and the bottom of the carafe become charred. We're not sure how the design could have changed to this or not have been tested to discover what we have.It will make us change to a different brand though.

Carafe drips everywhere

By CoffeeAddict from Undisclosed on 01/22/2012


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I do like the programmable functions and this particular coffee maker has lasted for well over a year now with daily use. I also am fond of the re-usable filter that came with it. No need to use paper coffee filters! My complaint however is that the carafe is the worst I've ever used. The pour spout is designed such that I can only pour a cup of coffee at a snail's pace without coffee dripping everywhere! The spout is absolutely the worst feature of this coffee maker. I would really like to find a replacement carafe with the narrow glass spout that works rather than this extra wide plastic one that simply creates a big mess every morning.

The Carafe is a joke

By baldone from Undisclosed on 01/19/2012


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I recently purchased this product and am very disappointed in the Carafe. It says it has a special collar to prevent spills, etc. This is not true. Everyone in the Office complains about the mess this carafe makes. The lip is way too big and it spills all over the place. This needs to be corrected. I will not buy another Black and Decker coffee maker.

Carafe makes a mess every time I pour coffee.

By wilsondbwriter from London, KY on 01/17/2012


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I like everything about this coffeemaker from the visual design to the controls to the taste of the coffee it brews, except the fact that it makes a huge mess all over the counter when you pour. It matters not whether you pour slowly or quickly, with the lid all the way down or up, it makes a dripping mess when pouring. Never had this problem with any other coffeemaker and I've been brewing and drinking coffee for about 30 years. I probably wouldn't have taken the time to seek out and review this product if it hadn't been marketed with the "perfect pour carafe" phrase. I've never been infuriated by a product like this one. Don't get me wrong, the carafe feels good in your hand it's just the inevitable mess. If you buy this product keep a towel to hold underneath while pouring or to provide an absorbent runway for the mess this carafe will make when you're seeking that first cup of coffee in the morning.

This product is wonderful

By Love it from Warrior Run, PA on 01/17/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I purchased this product about a year ago and found it to be excellent. I can't believe how hot the coffee is from it. I have purchased other coffee makers but this one by far is the best. Only problem I have with it is that the lid doesn't fit down on the filter part. It seems like it is warped. I love my coffee maker and will definately tell all my family and friends to buy this kind.

Good quality, good price.

By Arbie. from kansas on 01/01/2012


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have been pretty pleased with this coffeemaker. I have not been pleased with the replacement carafe. I cracked the original after about 2 years and bought the recommended replacement. I had the correct model number and the replacement carafe was the correct one, but it does not fit well and the basket will not drain fast enough. I have had several times of grounds in the coffee and have resorted to placing a heavy object against the carafe to push the spring to empty the basket of coffee.

The carafe leaks when pouring the coffee

By lovemycoffee from Edmonton, Alberta on 01/01/2012


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

The coffeemaker looks good on the counter and has an easy to fill reservior. Unfortuneately, the carafe leaks when pouring the coffee. I had an older Black and Decker coffee maker that we loved. Perhaps it is the plastic around the top where the coffee is poured.

By Bevers from Undisclosed on 12/30/2011


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This coffee maker has everything that I wanted. The carafe is very comfortable in my hand when pouring. The spout lets the coffee pour into the cup and not all over the counter. I'm very happy about the decision to purchase this coffee pot.

Carafe will not pour properly

By Barry from Bardstown, KY on 12/30/2011


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

The spout on the carafe is poorly designed and whenever pouring water into the coffee maker or pouring coffee it spills. We are constantly mopping up the counter around the coffee maker. Very aggravating. B&D needs to provide an alternative carafe. The coffee maker itself works well.

Replacement carafes do not work with this coffeema

By Dissappointed from Maryland on 12/27/2011


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

If you break a carafe, B&D does not make the correct model replacement carafe (DCM100B-01). Their supposedly suitable replacement will not allow the coffee to drain from the basket to the carafe. So if you break the carafe, just throw away the whole system. However, the coffee maker makes good coffee and is easy to use.

Product has some very good features, however----

By evelrus from Spokane, WA on 12/27/2011


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

This coffee pot does everything it advertised, and our only complaint is we have NOT been able to find a way to pour the coffee out of the carafe with at least 3 to 4 tablespoons of coffee going on the counter/table. We have soaked up more paper towels trying to find a way to pour without spilling. Any suggestions other than tossing the whole thing and starting over? Really like the design of the pot itself, but the spillage is getting very annoying.

I have always enjoyed Black & Decker products but unfortunately this product does not hold up. I have now had three of the same coffee maker and all have gone out after only a few months of use. They just stop brewing. Black & Decker has not actually replaced any of the coffee makers and the store where they were purchased was less than helpful.

By cookie from ky on 12/09/2011


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

You can't pour a cup without dripping coffee. When you raise the lid to pour water in, the condensation on the lid drips off onto your countertop. I would not buy this coffee pot again no matter the price. Love the price and style. Also the features of the coffee pot. Fix these two flaws and it would be great.

Great Coffee

By LoveMyCoffee from Atlanta on 12/09/2011


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Everything is great about this coffee maker. Great coffee + easy to use. The ONLY problem is the drippy carafe. You'd think that b+d could engineer a carafe that WOULD NOT DRIP! I've noticed on the web that I'm not alone with this problem. Black+Decker - come up with a better pot + I'll buy it! It would be worth the extra bucks!

This product does not make a good cup of coffee

By M Grandma from Ohio on 11/30/2011


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I decided to finally get rid of my old coffee maker and was excited to try my new one from Black & Decker. I was terribly disappointed. Most of the water that drips into the pot is clear, making extremely weak coffee. Also, if I take the pot off the plate, the coffee continues to drip. I plan to purchase another coffee maker - the brand I had previously that made excellent coffee.

Pouring spout stinks!

By househen1 from Athens, AL on 11/28/2011


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I purchased this coffee maker about 4 months ago. I HATE the pouring spout! No matter how you pour the coffee it drips! I have tried, pouring it slow, fast, touching the coffee cup, not touching the coffee cup. You need a women to test your products prior to putting them on the market. Maybe you should RETHINK the design. I would not suggest purchasing this product unless you like cleaning up after each time you pour a cup of coffee.

A couple of things about this product are horrible

By Cleansmygame from Winston-Salem, NC on 11/21/2011


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I have never written a review about any product but this coffee maker has got to be the worst appliance i have ever bought. When pouring the water into the coffee maker the water spills everywhere. I can pour slow or fast, i lift the lid before pouring and i keep the lid closed. I have tried everything to keep water from going all over the counter but nothing fixes the problem. Then after the coffee has brewed getting the coffee pot out of the base is difficult. It doesn't just slide out. It gets hung on the top and i have to work it out usually holding the base with the other hand. Getting a cup of coffee in the morning shouldn't be that difficult. I am not saying i will never buy another Black and Decker product because overall they have good products, i will just never buy this product again.

Yes it brews, yes it works good, then you have to actually poor your cup of coffee. No matter how slow, no matter how fast, no matter the angle, this carafe spills everywhere. You can lessen the amount of spillage but there WILL be spillage.

strong dislike

By irritated consumer from cleveland, oh on 11/18/2011


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I detest this coffee maker. the lip on the warming plate or whatever it's called is raised. therefore when the pot is placed back on it if it is not pushed properly into place it sits at a lean. this means that when you go to make coffee if you are in any way distracted, in a hurry, or tired and you don't pay complete attention to it you are likely to have a HUGE mess to deal with first thing in the morning. a terrible way to start out a day. i have done this more times than i care to admit. when this happens the coffee overflows the top of the actual coffee maker getting grounds, coffee and pretty much just a huge mess all over the counter and likely the floor. also, the actual warming pan is chipping and pealing. we've had this piece of garbage for less than a year.

I recently purchased this product and am VERY dissappointed. For being a dripless pot, this thing drips like Niagra Falls. I have to hold it over the sink to pour a cup.

Can not pour without spilling!

By Julie from Seattle, WA on 11/04/2011


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Sadly we bought 2 of these programable coffeemakers and had to get rid of both of them and start over. The carafe is such a bad design that it was impossible to pour from it without coffee running down the side of the carafe as you pour. No matter how careful you are, it spills; no matter how full or empty the carafe is it pours on the counter or floor. What a disaster! Should have returned them but we were not diligent about keeping the receipts and we had put one in our vacation rental without trying it. Bad, bad design so disappointing. I think we might have been able to purchase a replacement carafe for more money, but we did not want to take a chance that it would be just as bad as the 2 we already had.

Poorly designed pot. Don' buy it.

By Nonna from Rosedale, BC, Can. on 11/03/2011


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

The pot design is poor. You cannot pour a cup of coffee without it spilling . The pouring spout is sqaure. You have to pour very slowly and open the lid, (scalding your finger in the process) and if you're lucky you might have a spill free cup of coffee. Coffee is always poured over the sink!!! Also, the unit will shut off in the middle of brewing, not every time, but you have to check to make sure it is still on. The best place for this whole coffee maker is in the trash.

Bottom Line:

This carafe does NOT pour without spilling. I must put down a paper towel every morning to pour my coffee. There is no rhyme or reason as to why it drips.

I am very disappointed because I bought this model and brand based on "No Drip" I'm looking for a replacement.

A hot mess

By Realitycheck36 from Columbus, OH on 11/02/2011


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Horrible. The design of the pot allows for the coffee to run down the side, and pour all over the counter. Definitely was not properly tested and inspected before releasing into the market. Pouring water into the base, spills everywhere, and is even messier when it is coffee. Skip this one and find another model.

I purchased one of your coffee makers model # dcm2160b just to learn that it was nearly impossible to pour from without getting coffee all over the counter. I was forced to decide if I would buy a totally new coffee maker or replace the carafe, of which I should not had to do either. Finally I went down to buy a new carafe to find they had changed there design of the carafe. Just think of the money I could have saved if a design engineer had done his job right the first time or I had bought another brand, what a novel concept do it right the first time and buy a better brand.

"Perfect Pour" onto counter and floor

By Allen from Gainesville, GA on 10/28/2011


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

This coffee pot has improved my flexibility enormously. I can now bend at the waist and touch the floor with ease. Two weeks of wiping coffee off the floor and counter will do that. If consistently pouring coffee on the floor and counter weren't bad enough, the feature list on the box and B&D website adds insult to injury: the first feature listed is the "Perfect Pour Carafe." I guess it is perfect if you want to lap coffee off of your counter and floor. Too bad my dog does not like coffee. Sad, because I have had two excellent B&D coffee pots in the past.

Unfortunately I would not recommend this coffee maker due to the carafe. We have been unable to pour a singly cup of coffee or fill the unit with water without a HUGE lake left on the counter.

great coffmaker with a lousy coffee pot

By Geo from Monessen PA on 10/18/2011


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

We probably have gone thru a dozen or so coffeemaker, and this particular model is among the tops. The program timer is easy to understand, the coffee it brews out is great in flavor, BUT try pouring the water in the reservoir and the pot that holds the water runs off the side of the lip and onto the counter. To rectify this, I now use a water bottle bought just for this purpose. Now, when the coffee is done, be ready to re-wipe the counter or table and be sure you don't pour it while someone is holding the cup. The coffee pours into the cup and also out of the side of the pour lip, onto any thing that is under it. This has been since day one and it get more irritating every time we had to "fill-er-up."

It's terrible

By celeste from Seattle on 10/16/2011


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Black and Decker states "Our special carafe collar keeps drips and spills off the counter" this is not true. Each time we pour our coffee there is more coffee on the counter or in the sink than in our cup. This has been a very disappointing experience. I've been happy with Black and Deckers products in the past but this one I would not recommend! As expensive as coffee is, it's too much of a WASTE to have this coffee pot! Not worth the price or the frustration of having coffee all over the counter and not in the cup.

Much better products out there.

By Coffee Grandpa from Alberta, Canada on 10/08/2011


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I bought this coffee maker mainly based on the brand name and have been very dissapointed. The first unit I bought had a poor spout for pouring the coffee and would drip all over my counter no matter what I tried. The display was dim to start and after a few weeks went out almost completely. The store I purchased from gladly exchanged for a new one. The display was again dim but can still be read after more than a month. The pot didn't drip as bad as the first one initially but now is dripping and spilling often. The spout doesn't seem to be moulded proper or maybe it changes after being used with hot coffee. B&D has way better coffee makers for similar price.

Coffee maker is wonderful

By mrskat from Garrison, MN on 10/04/2011


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I like the coffee maker, but the design of the coffee pot is a complete nightmare and is really frustrating when you pour a cup of coffee and it leaks all over. So in order to pour a cup of coffee you must pour over the sink to not make a mess. Very INCONVENIENT that you can't pour coffee at the table.

Spout too large

By Trebor from Tumwater, Washington state on 10/03/2011


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I have a terrible time pouring water into the coffee maker and also when pouring coffee into cups! I thought it was something I was doing, but I have had guest who have poured a cup of coffee and it spills all over the counter! Several of us have drawn the conclusion that the spout on the carafe is too wide and therefore, water/coffee pours out on counter. I am also surprised that every time I open the top--water drips down on the counter from the back! I have never had any problems like these with other coffee makers! Do others comment on this as well ? Would like a answer to these problems! Thank you,

I have one of these coffee pot and you cannot pour a cup of coffee without it leaking all over the counter top or any other surface benith it. It does not make any differance how fast or how slow you pour, it will leak, not just little drops, I'm talking big time leaks. The no drip vaulve on top of collee pot comes off almost every time you remove or reinsert the silex. This coffee is a real atitute maker.

drippage

By shaduser from Muskogee, OK on 09/23/2011


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Regardless of all the buttons and whistles, When pouring from this square-spouted urn, you'll spill enough coffee to pay for the price of this coffee maker over the life of the coffee maker. It makes no difference how fast or slow you pour; the square spout drips - period. Poor design - looks superceded function.

Perfect Pour Carafe is junk

By Verydissat from Undisclosed on 09/22/2011


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

When you Pour from this Carafe it dribbles down the face onto counter. I will never buy another Coffee Maker from Black & Decker. Perfect Pour is a joke. BE WARNED!

No Spill Carafe?????????

By Grizz from Canada on 09/21/2011


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I normally don't bother with any reviews of products, who reads them anyhow. Who cares? Its cheap, it does the job, I need it now.....thats the general consumer. Well, here I make an exception. This machine makes coffee fine, programs easily, generally does its job, until you try to pour a cup of coffee. Thats where the fun starts. You wind up unsure of which end of the pot to hold your cup....seems about the same amount of coffee runs down the pot and onto the counter, as what goes in your cup. Maybe Black & Decker meant for this to be a 2 man job, where you and a buddy both hold your cups, one at the spout, and one at the bottom of the pot...I don't know. If so, they forgot to mention this small point. Here is their advertisement of this machine: ""Enjoy hassle-free simplicity and convenience with the coffeemaker that offers fast, easy programming plus the no-mess serving of our Perfect Pour carafe. Our special carafe collar keeps drips and spills off the counter, while dishwasher-safe parts like the removable filter basket make cleanup a breeze. "" Now, either they actually never tried to pour a cup from this carafe, or somehow the wrong carafe got put in the box that I purchased, because, I can tell you foresure, this particular carafe that I have with my machine, cannot pour a cup of coffee without dripping half of it down the pot and on the counter. Otherwise, this is a fine machine. What gets me more, is the model I owned before this one, also Black & Decker, poured just fine. THEY HAD IT!!! There multi-million dollar designers actually managed to make a carafe that could pour a cup of coffee without dumping half a cup on the counter!! But was that good enough???? NO WAY!!! They had to make a NEW AND IMPROVED model..... Nuff said.

What a mess

By Cookie from San Antonio, TX on 09/10/2011


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Every time I pour water in or coffee out it leaks out of the coffee pot on to the cabinets. The only way not to make a mess is to pour very very slow. Buy it if you like to start your day cleaning.

Stopped Working!

By mdashel from Undisclosed on 09/09/2011


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I had this coffee maker for less than a month and it just stopped working. One morning I put the water and coffee in, turned it on, and nothing! What really makes me angry is that I had a Mr. Coffee for the past 15 years, it still worked, my daughter bought this coffee maker because she thought I needed a new one. I guess I will be buying a new Mr. Coffee today...definitely not a Black & Decker!

Messy

By Shelia from Undisclosed on 09/07/2011


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

No matter how slow you pour, the carafe pours hot coffee all over the counter. I have an old carafe from a B & D and was going to use it, but it isn't compatible due to the lid design. My husband is throwing it out and we will now try another brand. The last one I bought had the same carafe issue but I was able to use the Smart Pour carafe with it.

Does not pour out well.spills or dribbles all over when pouring, weather you pour slow or fast. I purchased it 1 month ago and the burner is peeling off I cleaned it everyday with a soap and warm water nothing else. Looks nice when you buy it then all the problems makes it look a lot less attractive.......Next time,I research it even for something so cheap.

this coffee maker lasted over 2 years.

By coffeelovers from Pearsall on 09/01/2011


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

WE had bought 3 coffee makers 3 years ago and one gave out and so we opened one of the other 2 and it didn't work so we called Black and Decker and they replaced the new one for free. that was very nice of them. We just had to pay the shipping and handling. We just want everyone to know that this is a great coffee maker that lasted a long time. It is so nice to wake up and the coffee is ready. thank you so much for all your help in this matter. other companies may have told us the warranty was expired but they helped us out. We had to cut off the cord and send it in but that was not a problem either.We really appreciate what this company did for us. S and G Martinez ,Texas.

By dustyiam from Cleveland,Oh on 08/15/2011


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Bought this today, came home and unpacked it. Read the booklet to see if anything unusual appears in the instructions. Washed the carafe out, poured water into the reservoir and put in a filter, attempting to run a cycle before I actually brew a pot of coffee. Plug it in, turned it on, and NOTHING. No water pumping, the warming plate stays cold, and no help available because the offices are closed at this time. It was 745pm, est., and the booklet says call until 11pm cst M-F. Website says 8pm est. Either way, no one working to help a customer. So far, I am really disappointed...

By Patsy from Alden, Michigan on 08/14/2011


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This product has great features BUT, the pour spout leaks. I cannot get it to stop leaking when filing to make coffee. When I fill a cup, I have to pour real slow and make sure the coffee is coming out in the exact middle of the pour spout. This is a poor design. The spout needs a deeper grove cut into it. But thank you that it is made in America and is a good product.

Too many aggravating, irritating little problems.

By Fifi from Airdrie on 08/14/2011


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

For many years, my coffee makers have been Black & Decker Smart Brew. When the surface of the "Keep Hot" plate began to rust, I bought a Black & Decker 12-cup programmable to replace my Smart Brew. When I unpacked it at home, I noticed a couple of differences between the 12-cup and the Smart Brew. In hindsight, I desparately wish that I had immediately re-packed the 12-cup and returned it to the store. Irritating little problems 1. Programming is frustrating!!!! 2. The handle on the removable brew basket blocks part of the water reservoir. If water hits the handle while you're filling the water reservoir, the water runs through the basket and spills onto the "Keep Hot" plate. 3. The removable brew basket doesn't sit level. 4. The interruption mechanism is extremely ineffective. 5. Because of the dome on the carafe lid, it carafe does NOT slide easily into position on the "Keep Hot" plate 6. Even after brewing is complete, when you remove the carafe, a couple of drops of coffee drip onto the "Keep Hot" plate. 7. When you pour, a couple of drops run down the outside of carafe below the pour spout and transfer to the "Keep Hot" plate when the carafe is returned. 8. There are coffee droplet splashes between the carafe and the water reservoir and I don't even know how they get there. Because I have been unemployed most of this year, I cannot afford to replace this aggravating, irritating piece of junk coffee maker with a new Smart Brew. By the time I can afford to replace this aggravating, irritating piece of junk coffee maker, I'm going to be so frustrated that I will NEVER, EVER again buy ANY Black & Decker product. Sincerely. Former B&D customer

Brews good coffee but pouring it is impossible.

By Java Junkie from Undisclosed on 08/13/2011


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

The spout on the carafe is so poorly designed that it is impossible to pour without it dribbling and dripping all over the place. That goes for whether you're pouring water into the coffee maker or pouring coffee into a cup. It's maddening. I have to wipe up after every use.

I bought this coffee pot only 3 months ago. Everytime I pour a cup of coffee the carafe leaks. You can't pour water into the machine using the carafe because it leaks all over the place. I am sick of wiping up coffee. Also, the buttons for programming stick which makes it difficult to program. I will never buy a Black and Decker coffee pot again.

Coffeemaker is dead

By Marys Girl from Springfield, Ohio on 08/08/2011


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I bought the B&D coffeemaker, used it for 3 months...and now, it is dead. Oh yes, I tried to clean it with vinegar and followed the directions to a T. It still died. Well, it is not that it won't make coffee...its just that it takes 30 minutes PER CUP to perk. So my guy and I would have to set the coffeemaker to perk at like 4:30 am in order to get a cup each by 5:30 which we would have to nuke in order to get hot again. I threw it out and went back to my old unit...a mr. coffee that i bought on sale a couple of years ago. It is no longer very pretty, but it sure knows how to make a cup of coffee.

Impossible to pour without spilling.

By Frustrated user from Virginia on 08/01/2011


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

It is virtually impossible to pour out of the carafe without spilling either water or coffee. Try fast or slow, as soon as the lip passes horizontal (as in one needs to continue pouring to empty the carafe) the fluid spills over the lip, drips down the side onto the counter. Very, very frustrating. In addition, the filter housing is too large for generic 12-cup filters. The base is a larger diameter than the base of the filter. So, when filled with wet coffee grounds the filter sags and coffee grounds spill over the side into the housing and into the coffee. I'm wondering whether the engineers who designed this coffee maker have ever tried to use it. Poor design. I probably won't buy Black and Decker coffee maker again.

Great but pot broke after a week

By KRoses from Emeryville, CA on 07/27/2011


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I bought this coffeemaker after my old coffee maker broke and it works fantastic. Its very quiet and makes great coffee. Unfortunately; however, after owning it for less than a week, I was cleaning the pot regularly, nothing too intense and the handle slid around and the pot was cracked. Fortunately, I still had the pot from the old coffee maker and they're roughly the same size. 5 stars for working well, 2 stars for breaking. I'll give it 4 stars.

12 cup Programmable CoffeeMaker

By Karen, Canadian Coffee Lover from Canada on 07/26/2011


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I hate this coffee pot. It does not flow directly into the pot because the coffee filter HOLDER DOES NOT sit properly, therefore the coffee flows incorrectly. I did not require to purchase a coffee pot for 4years and this is one is the worst replacement. In fact, this pot will be replaced and it may very well be a possible back up although I never required one for four years. This product is poorly made, does not dispense coffee into pot properly. Required paper product because would not fit a reusable filter. DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY! Karen, Canadian coffee lover

Perfect Pour Carafe, Isn't

By SadCustomer from Vancouver, BC on 07/26/2011


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

It makes a nice cup of coffee, but despite trying to pour a cup every way possible, coffee always ends up running down the front of the carafe - I always end up with a mess on the counter. We waited too long to return it to the store where we purchased it, so it's ours until we find a replacement. We loved our previous B&D coffee maker, so I suspect this is just a poor carafe design. I have no other complaints with this product, but this issue negates any of its positives.

The carafe that leaks all over!

By coffeelover from Washington on 07/21/2011


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I make approximately 4 pots of coffee per day. I have gone through more pots than most. This one is the worst for pouring. Either filling the reservoir or pouring a cup, the contents goes all over the counter. Filling the reservoir with 12 cups of water you will loose at least a cup and a half on the counter no matter how slow you pour. I would NOT recommend this pot to anyone. A waste of money. you will get frustrated and get a new one within a month. They make a great drill though!

Has a poorly designed pouring spout.

By YellowRose from NM on 07/12/2011


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

No matter which way I try to pour the coffee, this carafe drips. I'm getting tired of soiling my newly-washed placemats and dripping on mail or whatever is in the way of the coffeepot. The overall look of the machine is chunky rather than sleek. The grip on the handle is probably bigger than it needs to be. The "stay-warm" feature doesn't keep the coffee hot as long as we'd like.

I have hard water and usually buy a B&D coffee maker once a year. This was my latest purchase 1 month ago. It doesn't matter how fast or how slow I pour coffee from this pot, I always end up with a half cup all over my counter. Unfortunately I threw out the box as I never have problems with B&D and have never needed it but I am tossing this one and buying something else. I'll try B&D another year if they redesign the pot again!

ok for a Black and Decker

By Silent_Sam from Stoney Creek on 07/09/2011


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

One day Black and Decker will get it right and make a Carafe that doesn't leak all over the place when a cup of coffee is poured. This is the closest they've come so far. If your carefull you only have a 35% chance of spilling some. The 'on" button protrudes from the base. On occasion I've noticed that someone has pushed something on the counter against the coffee maker and the machine is "on". Not so good for the machine to be "on" all the time while MT.

It is hard to pour water into the coffee maker because of the small opening. The spout on the pot has square edges which makes the brewed coffee run down the outside of the pot making a mess. I can't believe B&D would make such a bad design. We brew about three to four pots per day and when finished brewing the coffee is poured into a thermose. This is the first pot that must be poured over the sink because of the mess it makes. You can pour fast or slow, it will stilll drip. It drips fast if poured fast. It drips slow if poured slow. The only good thing is that coffee makers only last us about a year so I can't wait until this one breaks.

practicle joke

Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

The coffee maker part is fine, it's the dribble pot that is the problem! it is impossible to pour a cup of coffee without having it dribble all over the counter top. obviously the pot was never tested during design. if you don't mind pouring your coffee over the sink this is the product for you!!

Coffee Pot Spills Coffee When Pouring

By Daneau from Deep River Canada on 05/19/2011


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

This is the most frustrating coffee pot ever. Whenever you try to pour a coffee it drips all over the place. The spout on the pot is like a duck bill however it spills more than goes into the cup. Please don't ever make another coffee pot like this.

Perfect pour carafe no so perfect

By 1965Mark from North Charleston, SC on 05/10/2011


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

We purchased this model for our office. However, none of us can pour a cup of coffee without it "dribbling" down the side of the carafe. I can only wonder how much precious coffee is being wasted. Also, this model has the 2 hour automatic cutoff. There is no way to disable this feature. So be sure to drink all your coffee in the alloted time.

Good coffee, but fix the carafe spout

By Norm from Falls Church VA on 05/09/2011


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This is a fine coffee maker, and makes coffee as good as any of the more expensive models that can cost three times more. HOWEVER, the design of the carafe spout is defective. It is impossible to pour a cup of coffee without having drips on the counter. The problem is the spout does not come to a point, but is straight. I think your engineers should try these things before they put them in production.

Very poor design

By Uncleredeye from Ratcliff, Arkansas on 05/05/2011


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Where do I begin? The cup markings on the side of the pot are too far forward to read while you are filling it with water. The function buttons have been placed so close together that pushing the correct one is a hit and miss proposition. And, finally, the pour spout works like one of those old, trick dribble glasses - it is impossible to fill your cup without messing up the counter. Definitely not up to B & D standards.

Carafe spout problems

By Coffee Drip from Hawaii on 05/03/2011


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I have used many great products made by Black & Decker in the past, that is why i purchased a 12 cup programmable coffee maker. I enjoy my coffee in the mornings but I hate the spout on the Carafe, no mater how you pour your coffee make sure your pouring over the sink because the coffee coming out of the Carafe will spill. At first I thought it was just me but then 3 other members of my household experienced the same problem. Is there a replacement Carafe?

Perfect Pour Carafe always drips

By CoffeeDrinker from Spokane, WA on 04/24/2011


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Have owned this product over 5 months, and have constantly tried to find the 'secret' to drip-free pouring. It seems to pour fine IF one is satisfied with merely dribbling the coffee out of the pot. Any pour at a normal rate causes coffee to dribble down the outside of the pot and drip from the bottom of the pot onto the counter, floor, table top, etc. Am extremely disappointed with the 'pour' design and hope B&D will develop a better carafe to replace this one.

By AJ from Phoenix AZ on 04/23/2011


Bottom Line:

The overall product is satisfactory EXCEPT that the carafe is very poorly designed. There is no way that you can pour a cup of coffee without it spilling onto the counter. I am sorry to say that I could not recommend this product UNLESS there has been an improved carafe made for it I WOULD APPRECIATE BEING ADVISED IF THERE IS AN IMPROVED COFFEE CARAFE FOR THIS PRODUCT.

Poorly designed spout.

By RCL from Rochester, NY on 04/22/2011


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This coffee maker is well designed and mostly functions as it should. We like the cleanable filter. We don't have to buy paper filters that get used once then spend years in a garbage dump. However, the carafe spout is poorly designed. If you do not pour carefully, it is easy for the water or coffee to dribble over the corner of the spout and run down the side of the carafe. Please discontinue this carafe design and offer a better one.

Purchased Dec 2010. First used Christmas morning. Last month, we noticed it did not always work - the water would back up (and yes, the filter basket was in properly!) and now, you put in water for 12 cups, after 30 minutes, you have only 6 cups of coffee and it just stops! What a piece of junk! Went out yesterday and bought a new coffeemaker. And no, we did not buy a Black and Decker! Stay away!!!!!

spilled coffee

By spilling from Maine on 04/09/2011


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

While this coffee maker does make a decent cup of coffee you're aren't going to get as many cups as you make. We have to pour over the sink so the coffee that spills out instead of going into the cup doesn't run all over the counter. We lose at least 1/2 c to every cup that winds up in the coffee cup. It's such an unfortunate waste of time and money every morning.

Bought this coffee pot about 4 months ago and the carafe leaks as you pour the water and pour coffee into cup.

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.

Excellent Price-Poor Performance

By Sam from Louisville, KY on 04/05/2011


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

My last coffeemaker was a B&D and worked very well but unfortunately after two and one half years the carafe cracked. We decided to get a new one and stay with B&D. I ran a batch of fresh water to clean it out in preparation of using it the next day. The next day the coffeemaker would not brew. The on light was lit but the coffeemaker would not heat up. Very disappointed to say the least. It is going back to the store today. I am skeptical of taking a chance again on B&D.

This coffee makeris easy to use, makes coffee in a reasonable amount of time. What we don't like is the way the carafe makes a mess every time you pour a cup coffee. No matter what you do, open the lid a little or leave it closed it leaks down the front side of the coffee maker what dosn't make it into the cup. I would recommend the coffee maker it just would be nice if it wouldn't leak

A basic programmable coffee maker

By bb936 from Ontario Canada on 04/03/2011


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

For all of the coffee that I make at home it met my needs at a reasonable price. The only annoying thing is when you lift the lid , all of the condensed water drips out and over the back of the coffee maker and on to the counter. A different lid design would work. This should have been detected a long time ago when first designed.

12 Cup Coffee Pot Programmable Model DCM2160B

By Mimi from Farmington, MO on 03/31/2011


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Does NOT pour well. This is marketed as having a Pour Perfect Carafe but, this pot does not only not pour perfect, it does not even pour well. Whether you are pouring a cup of coffee of filling the machine with water there is constant run-off from the spout, messing up your cabinet top or table top every time you use it. I have had numerous family and friends try to pour from this pot to see if they could do it without the run-off from the pot. No one can. I would not buy again and believe I should receive a replacement pot but have had no luck in getting this done. Other than the pouring the pot, the machine is very good although a little slow. It brews good coffee, keeps it warm, and looks nice. The programmable features work well as does the "sneak a cup" feature and the 2 hr. auto turn off.

By rubyred from California on 03/26/2011


Bottom Line:

This is a nice coffee maker, but the big drawback for me is the 2 hour auto-shutoff feature. My husband gets up at 5:00 coffee maker is turned on. By the time I get up at 8:00 the coffee is cold. There is no way to set it so it stays on. I guess most programmable coffee makers have this feature that I was not aware of. This one is going back in the box and getting returned tomorrow.

Two coffeemakers of this model just stopped.

By LaughingRaven from Anchorage AK on 03/22/2011


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I just finished boxing up the second of these coffeemakers. Each one simply stopped without any indication of why. The first (purchased Jan 5) stopped after two pots--with the third pot, nothing happened. The second coffeemaker (replaced Jan 10 at the store where I bought the first), stopped March 22. I couldn't find out what might have gone wrong, but I suspect it may be related to the small tilt mechanism at the back of the basket. It's too fragile--it has fallen off the basket 4 or 5 times. After I've put it back on, the coffeemaker still made coffee, so it wasn't that directly, but there may have been a connection between tilt mechanism and start that I couldn't see. So, this second coffeemaker is going back to the store in exchange for a different kind of coffeemaker, maybe a different brand. I have been satisfied with Black & Decker power tools and small appliances, the main reason I bought this coffeemaker, but this particular one needs some rethinking on design, I would guess. The lid on the carafe broke off too easily, but that's not a reason to return a working coffeemaker. If it doesn't work, though, then it's time to replace.

worthless

By charlie from Orange Co Ca on 03/18/2011


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

the plastic rim on the caraf does not seal so every time you pour it dribbles (need a tiwel to soak up the puddel) and the perk marm sticks up above the machine so that you need to hold the water container up well into the air and if you use the caraf it dribbles out over the side of the machine - all in all a very poor job of engineering

Makes coffee making an unpleasant chore

By Co22 from Ontario, Canada on 03/18/2011


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

When opening the lid to add water to the reservoir, condensation runs down the back of the coffee maker on to the counter. Have to rock the caraffe back and forth to remove it from the coffee maker.. One of the features of this style is a no drip pour. Wrong. I end up with coffee on the counter after pouring. I have to hold my cup over the sink when pouring as cleaning up coffee off the counter, now leaves me with a coffee stained dish cloth. Quality control did not do a good job on this model. Have had the smart brew model, which works much better.

However, when you pour water into the maker or you pour coffee into a cup, you can count on water or coffee to run down the side of the pot and make a big mess..... With this said, you can count on a mess. If you are ok with this, you will get a great cup of coffee!

This product does not last long!

By Unknown from Charlotte, NC on 03/06/2011


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I have bought two of these in the past year. Same problem with both of them. The plate quits warming and it won't make coffee. The same thing happened to both of them. For the price, it should last longer than part of a year. I'm very disappointed and will not purchase anopther one.

The coffee machine is ...

By Unhappy ex Black and Decker customer from Undisclosed on 03/06/2011


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

The coffee machine is garbage-I bought it 3 months ago & it died on friday 3/4- will never buy Black and Decker small appliance again. I have a 20 yr old toaster oven & a 25 yr old Steam iron & Food processor that are great but they are over 20 yrs old all 3 are Black and Decker. And I cant find a coffee maker to last more that 3 months. What happened to the good products of old?

Plastic, burned taste and smell to coffee

By JavaND from Fargo, ND on 03/05/2011


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I thought the smell and taste of plastic would diminish after brewing several pots, but it has not. Odor and taste of coffee make the coffee maker unusable and a waste of money.

Black and Decker has awesome customer service

By Treida from Spokane, WA on 03/04/2011


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Thank you Black and Decker for having great customer service. Even though we had issues with the carafe from this coffee maker, Black and Decker has gone above and beyond to make sure we have a product we are satisfied with by sending us a new coffee pot with a different carafe.

Makes Good Coffee

By BobbyB from Undisclosed on 02/28/2011


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Our previous coffee maker was over 15 years old and its life ended when the power cord was accidentally dropped on a hot stove element. We have replaced it with this cofee maker. After doing the initial run throughs, we made coffee with 3 scoops from our coffee holder. It made coffee the same as our old one. Why improve on a good thing.

Good value

Bottom Line:

I bought this to replace an older coffee maker with a broken carafe. Controls are easy to use, and unlike our older one, no accidental hits to change the time. Makes coffee as good or better than any other we have had.

Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I purchased this product about 8 months ago and still have not found a way to pour coffee from the carafe without a lot spilling down the side of the carafe and onto the surface below. The design of the spout is terrible. I know others who own Black and Decker coffee makers and complain about the same problem.

coffee filter

By deckeruser from Washington State on 02/25/2011


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

first I want to say this product works great. I don't know if you are looking for feedback or suggestions from your customers but the only thing that may need to be improved is the location of the filter wing. I believe most people are right handed and poor water in from the right side. Your filter wing is on the right side therefore while pouring water in I have to be careful and avoid the wing causing water to splash. This maybe silly but just a thought.

This is the second coffee ...

By Judea from Toronto, Ontario on 02/14/2011


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

This is the second coffee maker i have purchased and the second coffee maker that has broken. The first worked fine for about 9 months but the second broke in just a little over a month. I realize the coffee maker has a 2 year warranty but that is with the company not the store that you buy it from. Who really wants to deal with all the hassle, time and exspense that comes along with returning a product to its original company let alone the store they buy it from. When my coffee makers broke i did need to replace them right away, i could not wait around for someone to get back to me. Dissapointed with the inconvience of this particular coffee maker and probably will not purchase again.

By cobrattt68 from Undisclosed on 02/14/2011


Bottom Line:

Bought this product 3-4 months ago. On average 4 pots of coffee are made daily. Following maintenance schedule of cleaning etc. You would think it would last a while, Wrong. Today with no warning it goes out. Nothing works, resulting in it ending up in the trash can. Will not waste my money on product or products that quit that fast.

The Carate spills as much as it goes into the cup

By Lee from Henderson, NV on 02/11/2011


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I will never buy another Black&Decker coffee produce! When you try to pour coffee into a cup more spills out than what goes into the cup. You get tired of wiping up the coffee on the table every time you want a cup of coffee, and it is embarrassing when it drips on the person that you are serving. I have tried to pour slow and fast it still pours everywhere except in the cup.

Defective design of carafe spout

By Frustrated from Waynesville, NC on 02/11/2011


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

All features of coffee maker are great EXCEPT caraft spout. The spout is level, not concave, which forces one to pour very slowly and carefully from carafe to avoid drips and spills to countertop. Very frustrating - - defective spout design.

Pot design horrible

By arachnomania from TN on 02/09/2011


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

This coffee maker works fine except for the pot. Everytime (and I mean EVERYTIME I pour coffee it dribbles/leaks down the front and onto the counter, floor, etc. Then, unless you wipe off the pot, since the bottom has coffee on it, when you set it back on the burner, well, it's just bad! Would never buy it again! Don't like the filter idea either.......

Bottom Line:

I have always bought Black & Decker coffee makers but this one said it had a perfect pour carafe. This is only true if you think coffee pouring all over the countertop is a perfect pour. With this coffee maker you have to stand over the sink to pour or you have a mess to clean up.

Second opinion

By madaboutmd from melbourne, florida on 02/08/2011


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I purchased this coffee maker...and loved it. Until I had a problem with the warming plate. I previously wrote a review summary about the product - that was not so favorable. However, since that posting, I have had great success/response from Black and Decker. They were very helpful regarding my concerns. Would I buy another coffee maker from B&D??? I sure would. Great price, looks nice on the counter, and makes tasty coffee. Thank you B&D for helping me with my concern.

Coffee pot drips

By Lyn from Bradenton, FL on 02/07/2011


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Coffee maker works fine, and timer works great. But the pot drips every time your pour from it. We tried pouring it all different ways and it still does it. I ended up just buying another one (different brand) since i already threw away the box and receipt. I believe the box even said it was a 'no drip' pot.

By Meg from Cincinnati, OH on 02/06/2011


Bottom Line:

this coffee maker broke within one month of purchase and it's only used 2-3 times a week. The water no longer moves through the filter. This is a very cheap coffee maker and I would not recommend anyone purchase it. Pay a little more and get something that lasts.

Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

We have purchased 2 of these coffee makers in the past year and have had to return both of them. The first one was leaking water from the side where the water level was visible through the plastic window. The second one just stopped working completely. I guess you really do get what you pay for, although this is a bit ridiculous.

About the carafe

By pherring4403 from Prattville, AL on 01/28/2011


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Very pleased with the design and quality of the coffee but very displeased with the carafe. Why can't ANY company make a carafe that doesn't dribble coffee all over the counter. This one seems to be worse than others. If you pour it slow the coffee runs down the side of the carafe, if you pour it faster it runs over the side of the lip.

Black & Decker's response to my negative review

By Geelybeely from Milwaukee, WI on 01/24/2011


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I recently posted a negative review on coffee maker CM1010B because I was disappointed it didn't produce hot coffee. We have to put newly poured cups of coffee in our microwave to heat up further. Black & Decker has contacted me to advise they're going to replace our coffeemaker. The cord plug is probably defective & that's the reason for the low heat process. The customer service representative was very helpful in solving our problem & I appreciate the prompt attention I received. This company wants their customers to be happy.GeelyBeely

Bottom Line:

It has this little flap between the top lid and the where water comes out into the coffee area . The flap comes up and hot water spills over the cover and onto the counter, hence making a mess to wipe up. I've snapped the flap several times and yet somehow it pops back up. Flap should be a fixed flap.

Bought this 12/28/10. I followed all directions for 'getting started' in manual. The first and 10th pot of coffee smelled and tasted just like burnt plastic. Make me sick to smell it. Ran vinegar through it several times. After total discuss of having to go to McDonald every morning to get a good cup of coffee, my kids purchased another new coffee maker for me. I have bought Black and Decker products all my life BUT my last two purchases (can opener/coffee maker) will be my last.

I expected better from B&D

By Owns2MuchB&D from California on 01/20/2011


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Let me start by saying, I've bought many Black and Decker products.. in fact they are easily my favorite manufacturer for things I use around the house. Most of the items I own are either hobby or repair based so they may well be made by a different provider.. but B&D put their label on it so here goes. This coffee pot has several design flaws that overall make for a very disappointing experience. First off, the lid over the water tank picks up a lot of condensation. This is nothing new as you have evaporating water.. it tends to do that. The problem is, there is a lip around the lid and the lid itself is so large that when you open it, this huge pool of water forms then runs down and gets all over the back of the coffee maker and the counter. Next we have the area that holds the grinds. This is let in on a spring but never quite seats right, moreover when you take out the filter via the handy cup the aforementioned condensation runs out from the newly released spring, wetting the burner and the front of the coffemaker. This aside, when you return the cup you have to reach into the giant lid because the handled is angled towards the back of the coffeemaker.. so any hope you had of not spilling the water from my first problem is now lost. Finally we get to the decantur itself, which along with the rest of the coffeemaker is entirely too tall to be practical on any counter with cabinets above it. This however is not my chief problem with this coffeemaker, that goes soley to the fact that it is nigh impossible to pour a cup'o'joe outta this thing without spilling it all over your favorite mug, counter, knuckles, and possibly even your dog if he or she happens to enjoy waiting patiently for you to drop stuff from the counter. I think next time I consider buying this category of product I will examine my options a bit more closely and sadly I'm no longer able to simply purchase B&D based solely on the knowledge that they crank out quality products.

Spout leaks from coffee pot when pouring

By CoffeeLover from Atlanta, GA on 01/13/2011


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I purchased this Black and Decker programmable coffee maker after my first Black and Decker (which worked perfectly) went caput. All the programming features work great on this model, HOWEVER, the coffee pot itself ALWAYS leaks all over the place when you pour. You could be pouring clear water into the resevoir-leaks. You could be pouring coffee into your mug-leaks. It's not just me. When my mother-in-law uses the coffee pot, same thing. When guests are over, same thing. I have tried several different "methods" of pouring and still nothing works to stop the leaking from the spout.

Carafe Leaks

By nikki from New York on 01/11/2011


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Beautiful coffee pot, looks great on the counter, I love the programmable features but it's defective! We noticed immediately that coffee would leak all over the counter when we poured from the carafe. We had to brew an extra cup of coffee each time just to compensate for what we were losing to the leak. Two weeks later when simply rinsing the filter a spring-attached piece popped right off. We haven't been able to use it since!

Spills over filter constantly

By Ken77539 from San Leon, TX on 01/07/2011


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I bought this coffee maker about two months ago. The price and programmable feature is what attracted me to it - but now they're not so attractive. The coffee maker works fine IF you're making quantities smaller than the advertised 10-12 cups. When I try to go full capacity, the filter overflows and spills grounds over into the caraf and onto the hot plate and on to my counter top. There's nothing I like more than cleaning up coffee grounds off my coffee maker and counter top at 3 am. I think part of the issue is the coffeemaker perkolates the water faster than the full filter can drain out into the pot. My suggestion - if you are constantly making "full" pots, look for another unit. If all you make is 5-6 cups at a time, this will work fine.

Drips when pouring

By dadadundi from Colonie, NY on 01/06/2011


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I've owned B&D coffee makers before. We replaced it recently with the 12 cup programmable version (DCM2160B). While this new model is stylish and makes a good pot of coffee, it drips when pouring- either pouring hot coffee (which ends up on counter or elsewhere) or when pouring the water into the maker. The area for the spout seems to be inadequate for the liquid. Too bad, too, as it's otherwise a fine maker.

I would like to see a change in the way the top opens. When you open the top to pour in the water, all of the 'dew'( from the previous use) on the inside of the top drips down behind the unit all over the counter. It seems most pots are made this way now, but my old one didn't have this issue.
