Wasted my money
7 February 2013
Summary: I wasted my money buying this coffee maker. Metal pot cold, leaks when pouring coffee. Coffee pot needs to be almost turned upside down to get the coffee out. No heater in the coffee maker. Wish I had bought one with a glass carafe, at least I did not have to unbscrew a lid to get the coffee out and then try to get it back on straight.
Summary: After pouring a couple cups of coffee (very slowly, I might add) you have to hold the pot over the sink, as the remaining coffee will drizzle down the side and be wasted. The coffee does not remain hot as the hot plate turns off after coffee is done. I am giving mine to the second hand store. I would NOT recommend this to anyone unless they are a glutton for punishment and frustration.
Summary: This was a replacement for a older Spacesaver Coffee Maker. This newer style takes up much less space as it sits back a bit further back under the cabinet. The water reservoir is easy to remove and fill. Sneak a cup is nice for when you can't wait. The carafe does not keep coffee hot as long as I expected but it does the job. We program the unit so that the coffee finishes right as we are ready to head out for work and coffee is nice and hot for our morning commute.
Summary: Love the idea..My only problem is pot has to narrow pour spout. it leaks on counter eveytime!! Like having the space on counter , love having thermal pot it stays heated quite well. Auto programming to have coffe ready when you rise of the morning. It just needs to redwsign the pour spout!
Summary: This is the coffee pot that came in our rv when we bught it. The pot should be filled with hot water to pre heat it while filling the water tank and adding the filter and grounds. This helps keep the coffee hotter. It does dribble a little when you are pouring if you try to pour to fast. We have used it in our rv for 3years and are satisfied with it.
Black & Decker ODC400 10-Cup Coffee Maker (almost new)
10 June 2007
Summary: Years ago, I had a B&D Spacemaker under counter carafe coffeemaker at home and at the office. The coffee stayed hot all day, without becoming toasted. I was looking for a coffeemaker for my daughter's dorm room especially one that could be mounted under a shelf, and one where the water carriage could be carried from the hall water source, inserted without the need to pour, thus avoiding a potential mess in her room.
Summary: I really liked the machine. I needed to replace my older model that I did in and as I require counter space wanted a spacemaker again. Some good points in other review they are correct about pouring being slow and the coffee not staying hot very long. I miss the light in the clock and timer area I had on the old one too. You have to have the light on to set it or see the time. I would watch for these things next time for sure but I got a great deal!
Summary: I bought this particular coffee maker because we needed something in a more compact size, to fit underneath our cabinets and because we drink ALOT of coffee. With our previous coffee makers, the longer the pot sat on the heated surface the more it began to taste too strong or "cooked". With the Black & Decker you have the thermal carafe. This keeps the coffee hot for several hours and fresh. It never gets that "old" taste.
Summary: I wanted a coffe maker that would make the coffee and put it in a container I could set on the coffee table so you don't have to constantly get up to refill your guests or your own coffee cup while entertaining or even just sitting around watching a movie! This coffee maker is very attractive and works very well and quickly. The feature with the programmable buttons OVER the water are great, because that way water doesn't leak into the electronics and short them out.
