Rated 5 out of 5 by Chicago I love this coffeemaker!
I'm not understanding the negative reviews. I have owned this coffeemaker since 2012 and have had zero problems with it. I replaced it a few weeks ago only because I felt like after 4 years of use I should probably consider buying a new coffeemaker ... and I bought the exact same model. This coffeemaker makes a great cup of coffee quietly. If you keep the basket's drip mechanism clean it's truly non-drip. I also like the look of it, just enough stainless to be attractive but not so much that it glares. I feel like buying another one as backup that I can pull out in 4 years, just in case B&D doesn't make it any more. :) I totally recommend this coffemaker. Just want to add that B&D shipped the coffeemaker very quickly.

Satisfied with coffee maker, however the display does not show how many minutes left before Shot Off and it also does have the alert function once it finishes brewing. Both feature sorely missed from this coffee maker.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Kira Great coffee....skipped a couple should -have hads
The most important functions are here in this coffee maker...the coffee is great and the brew strength selector for customizing is a wonderful plus, not to mention programmable and a carafe with a smooth pour. Those who exist in the left handed world might be surprised that any coffee maker today does not have the carafe measures on both sides as well as the right side only markings of the water basin on the maker. This is a right handed discriminate coffee maker by design. We can all cope (hehe!) but when you go to fill your carafe with water and cannot see the measure marks, you'll know what I mean. For those relying on this as a clock at night, you will be disappointed that the digital clock does not light up, so keep that in mind. For me, making coffee that tastes great was the goal and this fits the bill....

I actually came onto this website to see if there was a button I needed to press to reprogram the coffee maker, and come to find reviews from others that are having the exact same problem; the power light turns on, but no water is entering into the pot! I purchased back in August after I dropped the glass pot to my old coffee maker. I even tried to auto program the coffee, still no water coming into the pot. Very unhappy the day before Easter & needing coffee, now I have to load up all 4 of my kids to get some caffeine for my day! I loved the coffee pots silver front look because I thought it made it look classy in my kitchen, but will NOT be buying a new one of this brand :(

Makes good coffee - can set to strength that you want. But most of all it has a carafe that pours without spilling!!!! Please don't change that. It has a wide, deep lip spout. Pours great even when you're half asleep in the morning. Yay

Rated 1 out of 5 by Terra Maria Manor A horrible coffee maker!
I had this coffee maker for less than 4 months. It one day it just stopped. I think it is the heater unit that gave out. Black & Decker should refund all purchasers.

Rated 1 out of 5 by JavaLover undrinkable coffee
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.
