Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Squak Works very well
I now have two of these items, one for each floor level in my townhouse. Just wish they sold the coffee pitcher itself for a reasonable price, because breaking one is why I had to buy a whole coffee maker. Makes excellent coffee.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Carla1949 So-o-o Disappointed
I've bought many Black & Decker products over the years and have found this to be a very reliable brand - until now. This coffee maker is no longer working properly and it's less than 1 year old. If I only want to make 3 or 4 cups - the reservoir doesn't fully empty during brewing. I'm going to check the service website to see if I can get a replacement. Other than that, I was very happy - nice small footprint - no issues with "plastic smell" as many others noted. Another feature I like is that the unit seems to be weighted so that when I use the on/off switch, it doesn't push the unit across my counter top. Lots of great features - but what happened to the inner works?

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by kathyfitz Nice little machine!
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've had this coffee maker for about a year now. I only use it to make 1 mug size and it tastes fine. I like that it takes up very little space on my counter. As far as smells or tastes of plastic, I have not noticed any. I guess a timer would help and if you pour the pot too fast the lid may pop up a little too much and some coffee will spill out. But really minor problems. Great value for the price!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by CassaundraTheTrainer Great... While it worked.
I bought this about 2 weeks ago and used it roughly 7 times before one morning randomly it decided to stop working. No brewing or heat. Took it back to target for an even exchange. Hoping this one lasts longer!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DonL Just what I needed
We want to make 4 cups and can't see using a 12 cup pot. Looked for a black coffee maker, the white ones stain quickly. Don't want another clock to set, I unplug it when I'm done. I have been happy with many B&D products, they keep on working.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by w0ntdrinkplastic taste of plastic in every cup
After dripping over a dozen pots of coffee in this brand new coffee pot, I'm tossing it to the curb. The smell and taste of plastic makes the coffee undrinkable. I've tried baking soda, white vinegar, freshly ground coffee beans, and just plain water in an attempt to get rid of the chemical/plastic/noxious
taste this coffee maker produces with every pot. I want my money back! And I want to stop wasting time, and coffee beans, and vinegar, and baking soda, and water! on this smelly piece of junk.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Charlie Decent coffeemaker, pretty much what I expected
I can't ask for too much when I only spent $25 on this coffee-maker! I have a small kitchen (and a very small budget!), so for what I had to work with, I'm happy with this product. It is VERY simple (one switch that turns on and off), small size which is great for limited space, and easy to clean. Makes about 3-4 cups of coffee if filled to the top, so it's great for a solo coffee drinker. It is nothing fancy, and makes semi-OK coffee, so overall it works. If you want a coffee-maker with all the bells and whistles and one that makes over-the-top scrumptious coffee, I wouldn't recommend this one, but for those on a budget who like simplicity, this product will most likely meet your needs.
