Sucks NEW

I bought this coffee maker less than a month ago and it has already stopped working. B & D doesn't service them (I can't find anyone who does) so don't waste your money

Great coffee maker for small price NEW
by: evzusa

This is a no-frills coffeemaker that easily fits my requirements for coffee at work. I have had it for almost 2 years, brewing every day..filter, coffee , water, power on, voila..coffee. Through my own clumsiness, I dropped the carafe today. Looking for replacement but I figure, it will probably just as cheap to just buy whole replacement

My 5 cup coffee maker leaks while perking. About 1/4 to 1/2 cut of water comes out from underneath.

Nice for $15

Very basic coffeemaker, but it gets the job done pretty quick thanks to an element that seems to heat up the water fast and (finally) a caraffe that doesn't spill. Makes a surprisingly good tasting cup of coffee too.
