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!

My husband makes his own coffee in the morning, at 70 yrs of age he dislikes modern technical things. We had a 5 cup Mr Coffee maker for years, when one broke we'd get another . He likes the white color as it's easier to see at 4 in the morning, which is why I don't make the coffee. I was very aggravated because it was impossible to clean the inside water well.
We love the Black and Decker 5 cup coffee maker. Simple and easy to clean Thank You, and the price was just right !

There are a number of negative reviews on this site, but mine won't be another. I've bought this coffee maker twice, the second time only because I broke the carafe and a replacement was only a few dollars cheaper than an entirely new machine. I used the first one for years without a problem and it was still working when I replaced it (due to the broken carafe). I've had this current one for about year now and it too has been without issue, and I feel it makes a great cup of coffee! So, to each his own I guess, but I haven't found anything wrong with this coffee maker!

I wanted a black coffeemaker to replace my 5 year old Mr. Coffee white coffeemaker-because of the unavoidable coffee stains, not the functionality of my old Mr. Cofee. I'm returning this one, and keeping my old Mr. Coffee.
This 5 cup B&D coffeemaker has the following design flaws-
1. Carafe does not pour smoothly-drips.
2. Water fill window is very difficult to read.
3. Sharp pieces on back top where hinges are for cover are uncomfortable.
4. The design does not prevent coffee from continuing to drain when the carafe is removed, unlike several other brands.
