Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by crazy_bones My husband and I purchased this product because of the fair price at a "Box Store". We brought it home and brewed a cup of coffee. The coffee maker takes around 45 minutes to brew a pot. It slowly drips into the pot. It takes forever. And it uses so much steam that you can fill it to make the whole pot yet when its done brewing you have maybe have just over a half a pot.
On one good note it has a timer on it so you can have a cup waiting for you when you wake up. But make sure you set it for over 45 mins before you want ur daily cup.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by JG in NJ A so-so product. Typical of BnD.
I really like the programmable feature and it works well enough. CONs - The black nonstick "Keep Hot" carafe plate became discolored with minerals or something almost immediately and it won't come off (while my Mr. Coffee coffee maker never discolored even after 8 yrs). It's close to 1.5 years old and the handle feel loose around the glass rim of the carafe. The snap-on Carafe Lid is annoying as it must be lifted when pouring or the coffee dribbles all over the counter. The lid must also be removed before placing in dishwasher - won't fit with lid on. One additional point, my old coffee maker has a hotter brew temperature which (in my opinion) enhances the coffee flavor. I use both coffee maker everyday (flavored & unflavored coffee) my old one is still going strong. I wonder how the BnD DCM675BF will hold up?

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by cjoyceNewYork 5-Cup Programmable Drip Coffee Maker
This is a perfect small coffeemaker by Black & Decker. It's exactly what I wanted. It's small. The height is 10" and the coffee pot is less than 5". The photograph doesn't show how cute it is. The coffeepot is a perfect miniature version of a larger pot. It makes only 5 cups of coffee, but that's all I wanted, plus I needed something that would fit in a small space. I haven't yet tried the programmable feature. This product has a small basket, put the coffee in, pour the water in, touch the button, and you've got great coffee in seconds. I don't believe this product was designed to last more than a year, but it works great. Note: the parts cannot be washed in a dishwasher. You do not need coffee filters. Very easy system, and it's adorable if that doesn't sound too corny. Makes great coffee!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Pat No autostop when carafe is removed during brewing
This is a huge disappointment. My husband suprised me with a cup of coffee from my new pot. Later I discovered if you remove the carafe during brewing, the coffee continues to drip all over the unit and countertop.
I had a cheaper version without the timer that had that feature. I cannot believe this more expensive version does not have that. Huge drawback. I'm always having to clean the countertop. First pot in over 15 years that did not have that feature. Extremely disappointing.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DancinPhil Great Coffeemaker for the Single Person
I live alone and drink on average 1 cup of coffee per day, usually in the mornings. This "5-cup" maker will net about 3 normal sized coffee mugs per pot, which was exactly what I needed. Whether it's just me, or I have company it's always the right amount of coffee. Super easy to use, and the permanent filter is simple to empty, rinse clean, and throw back in. I broke the carafe and will now be purchasing another complete coffeemaker to replace it.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Jen Broke after 2 months.
When it works, it's great, but most of the time I have to wiggle it and smack it and shake it around because of a loose connection. This started less than two months after I got it. By then the store warranty was over, and now I have to figure out how to get this thing replaced.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by birdlady The light which indicates that the coffee maker is on is so small that it is very difficult to see.
It is 99% impossible to see the water in the water level guage.
Otherwise a good product.
