Summary: Great coffee maker for the price. Yes, just like almost every glass carafe I've ever used it will drip a bit. So does the spoon you stir your coffee with. If you're careful (not pouring so the liquid touches the lid) it almost never drips.
Excerpt: I honestly have owned so many coffee makers in my lifetime, but this one truly is my favorite. Last year when my old coffee maker broke, I purchased this Black & Decker 12-cup Programmable coffee maker at Kohl's. It was cheaper than most of the other coffee makers there, but I gave it a shot anyway.
Excerpt: I use this percolator everyday. I love that I can make just enough coffee for my husband and I or make a full pot when we have guest. It is easy to clean and measure. The programmable feature is great in that I can wake up to the fresh aroma of brewed coffee!
Summary: Don't understand so many poor reviews. If you overfill the reservoir past the max point it will overflow out the back...but common sense solves that. I haven't had any issues with seating the carafe. It's easy to set a new pot of coffee.
Excerpt: This programmable coffee maker is capable of preparing 12 piping hot cups of coffee at once, making the machine a great choice for large groups, big family and those who really love their coffee.The coffee maker is stylish and sleek, equipped with all of the latest technology and features that you...
Summary: Brews fast and coffee is very hot not like some where you have to wait for a while after it brews. Also rhe coffee doesn't get that burnt taste if you keave it sitting for a while. In fact even a few hours after you brew it.
Excerpt: This coffee maker did a pretty good job for 2 years. It got the job done while we had it and the coffee tasted good.Brew PerformanceThe coffee always tasted great. There were no issues with the taste or the timing.Ease of CleaningThe filter and the pot were able to go in the dishwasher.
Summary: The spring loaded lever that opens the valve allowing the coffee to flow into the carafe has a tendency to push the empty carafe off the burner and closing the valve. This results in coffee grounds and coffee all over the coffee pot, counter top, floor etc.
