Caution ! Basket spring rust and sharp fragment !

T. Abramson, Amazon
7 February 2013
  • Summary: I have owned this coffee maker Black and Decker TCM450B for approximately four years and the spring in the filter basket has rusted and a broken piece fell off the top of the carafe into a cup of coffee. Luckily I noticed before I swallowed the sharp rusted metal half circle. I do not have hard water or rust issues and have used and cleaned the coffee maker regulary.

Poor Quality!

Anaya "Book lover", Amazon
16 December 2011
  • Summary: I have used the Black and Decker thermal coffeemaker for over 13 years. Good product, great company, so it was a very easy decision to order another when the one I had finally died. The only difference is the all of the previous ones had the stainless steel 'looking' carafe. At any rate, from day one, the water reservoir cover warped from the steam. The coffee filter basket does not close well and finally when you pour the coffee, you lose and spill much of it.

Beware of the Dribble Coffeemaker

Renee', Amazon
24 October 2011
  • Summary: I bought this coffeemaker to replace the older version of this. I am disappointed to say that it does not keep the coffee as hot as the old one, and the buttons for setting the time, etc. are incredibly sensitive, so be careful when you're wiping off the counter!! The biggest disappointment is that it is like a "dribble glass". It drips all over the counter when you pour from it. It doesn't matter how loose or tight the lid is adjusted. Be advised...

Don't buy it

J. Maust, Amazon
26 January 2011
  • Summary: After owning an earlier model of this unit, one that lasted and lasted, I was so satisfied that I bought the TCM450B no questions asked. What a mistake! When I got it home it didn't even turn on. I packed it up drove to the nearest store that would take it back and picked up a second. I've had it less than six months and it too quit. When it works it's fast. I like the insulated carafe.

B& D thermal coffee maker

R. Perloff, Amazon
14 January 2011
  • Summary: This is a dreadful product, originally supplied by 6AVE and sold by Amazon and now only sold by 6AVE. The thermal carafe began leaking and we originally thought is was just dribbling when pouring. Then it began pouring--out of the bottom seam and also the bottom. Obviously, the glass insert was cracked. When contacting the seller directly they were not helpful re returning the product but Amazon stepped in and reimbursed through their A to Z guarantee service.

This coffee maker is a diaster!

Steveorino, Amazon
14 January 2011
  • Summary: I agree with a previous reviewer. The temperature is luke warm, it constantly drips from the bottom no matter what you do or how careful you are. I bought because it was a Black & Decker as I have had great luck in the past. They really blew it this time. Do not buy this disaster!

Good Coffee, Bad Carafe, Molten Plastic

Orange Crush, Amazon
26 September 2010
  • Summary: The coffee tastes great. Too bad the carafe spills nearly every pour. Whenever I used this coffee maker, I had to make an extra cup "for the sink" since it would spill about 1/8 of what I poured. More bad news - today I went to grab my coffee carafe from the coffee maker and it wouldn't move. It turns out that the bottom surface (where the carafe sits) had melted and fused to the carafe. SCARY!
