Summary: A serious design flaw ! The lid needs to be tightly seated for this maker to work correctly . If it's not seated , the floating grounds trap with no-flow valve will stop coffee from flowing into pitcher, causing overflow ( and a mess ) . Also , It did not work for me in AUTO , after many attempts to program it .
Summary: This manages to brew a decent tasting cup of coffee, if you use the dark brew feature, which simply requires that you press a little button twice after you hit the large start button. This also has a few other bells and whistles, which I do not use. I have tried the self-clean feature once, with white vinegar, and it seemed to work fine. You cannot see the water fill line, so I just guess at the amount of water I am putting in it, based on experience.
Summary: DO NOT BUY THIS COFFEE MAKER. It is the WORST coffee maker I've ever owned. The coffee spills everywhere when trying to pour-the spout is too small and unless poured at a trickle, it's a MESS. I hate it!
Summary: My last Black and Decker died one morning and I went and bought a cheap one by another brand. After a few days I was sorry and ordered this one. You can always count on Black and Decker. The thing that I like about this one is that it has an automatic shut off. And that is a must for me. Thanks.
