Rated 2 out of 5Â by joanie18 Purchased the Black and Decker 5 cup coffee maker and wished I'd have listened to the reviews. The machine is slow to perk and since there is no stopper in the basket to stop the flow when trying to get a cup, the coffee keeps coming out. Also if you pour too fast the coffee dribbles all over the place. Would not purchase again.
Rated 2 out of 5Â by krazgal00 Good, but sour coffee!?
I've had this for several months. I only bought white because it's all the store had. I would prefer black! The only complaint I have is the coffee tastes sour. Every. Time. I have literally bought about 10 different types of coffee, used faucet water and filtered, and nothing seems to make the coffee taste good. I scrolled though the reviews, but out of all the complaints I haven't seen this one yet. Maybe I'm just doing something wrong?! I don't know, but it's annoying when I can't have coffee because it tastes gross and I wasted money on this cheap machine that doesn't work how I'd like it to! I wish I would have just spent more for a better machine. I can't return this one because it's been too long, so yay for me. Money down the drain.
Rated 1 out of 5Â by uwc1 Drips everywhere! Poorly designed.
This is the most poorly designed coffee maker I ever made the mistake of purchasing. It is nearly impossible to pour from the carafe without spilling. It drips everywhere unless you pour VERY SLOWLY. I have to use two coffee filters or the coffee is way too weak. Worst of all, you cannot pull the carafe out while it is still brewing. You must wait at least 10 minutes after it is done before you can pull out the carafe, or it drips everywhere. The only thing I like about this coffee maker is that I can get three full cups of coffee from one brewing. Size is right, design is horrible!
Rated 3 out of 5Â by Lclaes Seems to be not very sturdy!
Good features, but not what I expected from Black & Decker. Tried an off brand before which I HATED. Had higher hopes with this one because it was a name brand, but was a little disappointed. Not nearly as bad as the off brand though!
