Product Description
Black & Decker SmartBrew coffeemaker in black. Includes 12-cup capacity, lighted on/off switch, removable brew basket, water window, cord storage and Perfect Pour Review
This is one programmable coffeemaker that’s actually very easy to program. The touch-pad buttons are intuitive, and the printed directions clear, so there’s no excuse for not waking up to the aroma of a freshly brewed pot of java. To prepare for making a pot at any hour, the lid lifts up (hinges in rear), exposing the brew basket: add a flat-bottomed paper filter and the ground coffee of your choice. There’s ample pour space for water, the level of which you can view through a convenient window on either side. Simply close the lid and push the On button. Auto/On and the clock buttons set the time for delayed start.

The most satisfying thing about the glass carafe is that the wide lip pours without a single drip. In addition, the broad bottom on the carafe affords good surface contact with the stay-hot plate for up to two hours; at that point, the machine shuts off automatically for safety. Those who can’t wait for a sip before the entire pot is brewed will appreciate the Sneak-a-Cup feature. While the coffeemaker stands 13 inches tall, it must be pulled forward on a counter to clear most cabinets since the raised lid requires 22 inches. The DCM2500B features a sleek hourglass shape, comes in black or white, and is covered by a one-year warranty. The brew basket and carafe are dishwasher-safe in the top rack. –Ann Bieri

Not only does this coffee maker tend to overflow and render the maker unusable, but the coffee it makes is only luke warm. You have been warned.

Made cheaply, leaked, bulky. Replaced it with a Farberware percolator.

After two months I am tossing this coffee maker out. It overflowed and spewed coffee grounds and water all over the kithen. Once is enough!

I bought a Black & Decker two years ago – the coffee it made was fine (a little weak…I had to double what I normally use), but the carafe is pretty flimsy. It cracked and broke this morning, even though I drink coffee fresh and never leave the machine on for more than 45 minutes.

Bought this Black n Decker coffeemaker on recommendation I noticed Instapundit blog.

Worked fine. For 3 months, until the on/off control button quit working.

End of coffeepot. For about $29 it’s not worth returning to Amazon.
