Brew coffee just the way you like it. This 12-cup* coffeemaker features VORTEX™ Technology, which evenly saturates coffee grounds for full and rich flavor extraction using optimal water temperatures. You can change the brew strength with the option for a slower brewing process and stronger cup of coffee. Set how long you want to keep coffee warm after brewing with the adjustable keep warm timer (options for 30, 60, 90, 120 min, and OFF). Sneak-A-Cup™ Technology lets you pour a cup of coffee before the rest of the pot has brewed--all without any drips or spills. Other useful features include: Smart-Clean automatic cleaning cycle, 12-cup* Duralife™ glass carafe, washable brew basket, and “Keep Hot” heated carafe plate to make sure coffee is hot when you’re ready to drink it. *cup equals approximately 5 oz. (varies by brewing technique)
Simple, but programmable
This Black & Decker coffeemaker is everything you need for your basic of basics. It's programmable, sleek in design, and has a great time clock display. I find it to be easy to use, although it took me a minute to realize that you have to push the middle button to actually get it to start brewing. There isn't a "brew" button, it's just a button with the universal "power" symbol. It confused me at first, but then again it was the morning and I hadn't had my coffee yet! I pushed the "strong" button and walked away from the coffeemaker, and when I came back 5 minutes later (and nothing had been brewing yet), I realized that the big button in the middle just needed a push. It's an otherwise very simple machine to use, and it brewed a really nice pot of coffee for me. I do wish it had the ability to grind coffee, but I guess that means less cleanup too. I would definitely recommend this coffeemaker to anyone looking for a sleek coffeemaker that does all that you need without the complicated technology.Sara
I like the smart look of this coffee maker. I like the fact that the coffee is really hot . I have had others but the coffee got cold so quick I think being real hot improves the tast love the program. This coffee makere fits right into a nice space I have really love that. the black stainless feature is smart looking. love the way it kept my coffee warm for that second cup. it has more of those little holes so there is more hot water and space covered. remember holidays and gift time is coming I think this would be a great gift for a coffee loverpgreene
I really LOVE this coffee maker!
I just got this Black and Decker 12 cup programmable VORTEX coffee maker. It's after 4pm, but I just had to set it up and brew a pot. First off, this machine is sleek, with a very small footprint. Secondly, I love being able to control the strength of my brew, as well as the length of time the hot plate keeps it warm. It also has a cleaning cycle...awesome! Delayed brew is also quite nice, as is the sneak a cup feature. Black and Decker has knocked it out of the park with this one! It is, by far, the best basic coffee maker I've had. I hope to use it for years to come. Oh, and I'm drinking my lovely cup of Joe now, and it tastes wonderful.audchild
