My Black & Decker coffee maker is going on 10 years now


I've had a Black & Decker coffee maker for almost ten years now!  I can't believe how well it's held up because when I bought it, I just wanted a cheap one for the time being.  It has a simple timer on it that anyone can figure out and use with ease; it also displays the time on the coffee pot which is a  nice feature.  The machine its self is a litle bulky, but in the last ten years I think that they've slimmed down a little.  One thing I really like about the Black and Decker coffee pot is the fact that it has a 12 cup decanter.  If you're going to be sharing your coffee with anyone, you better have a 12 cupper!  This coffee machine makes really good tasting coffee - but you have to make sure that you keep it clean by running batches of baking soda water and vinegar water through it occasionally.  If you don't keep it clean the coffee starts to taste a little bitter.  I would reccomend this coffee maker because its inexpensive and works well!

You get what you pay for


First thing is wash the system. From this simple act I find that one must pour the water into the water reservoir SLO-O-O-O-O-LY! It seems that the carafe lip geometry cannot handle a 'regular' pour speed. After wiping up the counter and coffee pot, I tried to remove the brew basket. Now folks, I'm seventy-three years old. Been brewing and drinking coffee longer than most of you have been alive. I couldn't get that frelling basket off. Seems the side of the coffee maker body and the pivot hinge are not quite aligned. A flexing of the plastic parts is necessary for the basket to clear the body edges as it moves up or down, so it can swing into the 'brew' position or come off for servicing. Instructions call for one wash, I gave two. Thus I found another undocumented feature. After struggling to get the basket off, put in a new filter paper and replace the basket (while flexing the body parts), I opened the reservoir cover to slo-o-o-o-o-ly pour in a second flush. The cover has a nice large lip. When the cover is opened, the condensed moisture runs down the cover underside and collects in the lip. Close the cover and the trapped water conveniently flows onto your counter top. I gave two stars as (after three months) the clock is still working and the DLX900 DOES make a good cup of coffee. I guess I'll keep this one but I sure wouldn't buy another!

I love how easy the Black and Decker coffeemaker is to use!"


I enjoy having a coffeemaker that is quick and easy to use.  My Black and Decker 12-cup Programmable coffeemaker provides a quick start to my day.  I just fill the water tank and place coffee grounds in the brew basket and I am ready to go.  A full pot takes under fifteen minutes from grinding the coffee to filling the water tank to sitting down with a fresh cup of coffee.  The brew basket detaches from the coffeemake so that it is as easy to clean as the glass carafe.  The lid also detaches from the carafe which is very helpful.  Plus, all those pieces can go into the dishwasher.  My only complaint is that, recently, something got into the water tank, and although I used a bottle brush to clean it, all I got for my trouble was black, greasy smudges.  I think it would be a terrific bonus if Black and Decker included a brush for cleaning the water tank when necessary and perhaps a simple solution to run through the coffeemaker to clean it when necessary.
