First of all, I did receive this product at no charge in exchange for my honest review and in no way at all does that reflect my personal opinion on this product. Let me start by saying I absolutely love this coffee maker! Brewing time is approximately 11 minutes from start to finish. The coffee was hot and tasted wonderful. I love how wide the spout is on the decanter. When pouring, I don't have to worry about spilled coffee all over my counters and floor. It pours very nicely. The coffee maker is so easy to program and had no difficulty in doing so. It allows you to sneak a cup while brewing and it does automatically shut itself off after two hours. I'm always up way before my husband so after two hours just simply hit the on/off button to turn the unit back on. The clock is bright and easy to see. I can honestly say that there isn't anything at all I dislike about this coffee maker. Would I purchase/recommend it? Absolutely!!
I love my B&D but I'm not liking the way it doesn't keep the time, it's kinda hard to set it to go off at a certain time if the clock is gonna malfunction. At first I thought my husband was touching the clock when he made coffee but one weekend he wasn't home & it did the same thing. We've also figured out you have to put the coffee basket in place just right b/c if not it's gonna run over, that's not good. Please work on these things to make your products better.
I received this coffee maker as a gift and am quite happy with it with one exception. The display is not back-lit which makes it very hard to see the screen, even in good light. I have to use a small flashlight in order to set the clock or timer and to see for sure that the delay brew is on or off and to see the strong indicator.
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.
