Black & Decker TCM450B 8-Cup Thermal

by Jennifer

I had been wanting a thermal carafe coffee maker for a long time and just couldn't find one that I really liked. I was given this one as a gift last year for Christmas.It is great and I love the black color. I don't drink a lot of coffee, mostly just in the winter time so this was perfect for me. I love that you are able to set the timer to go off and then when you wake up your coffee is ready and waiting. The carafe works great in keeping the coffee just the right temperature throughout the day. I have even had some left the next morning and it was actually still pretty hot.The clock and timer is such a plus. And the auto shut-off feature is so nice. There have been times in the morning I have worried that I did not shut the coffee maker off. Now I know that I no longer have to worry about that, when the coffee is done, it shuts itself off. I also love that it is really easy to clean and maintain.

I would recommend this coffee maker to anyone that like to have coffee all day long without having the bitter taste from it sitting there. This would be a great coffee maker for those just starting out and newlyweds as well.

The price is great and a great value for the money. This machine does not even compare to those that do not have a carafe.

It is so nice to have a coffee pot that can be taken from the coffee maker to the table and not have to worry about it getting cold quickly.

The spring in the basket on my TCM450B rusted and broke, causing me to almost swallow a sharp metal half circle of spring. Please check !

Great Coffee Maker
by: Anonymous

I had a TCM450B for over a year and it makes great consistent coffee.
Recently my girlfriend dropped a heavy metal knife into the carafe and broke the internal glass.
This is the only coffee maker I have ever owned that compelled me to buy a replacement of the same type. I ordered another TCM450B and I'm back to making great coffee. Unless you are a complete klutz, I find nothing extraordinary difficult about this coffee maker. The thermal carafe in PLAINLY marked on where to rotate the lid to when pouring a cup of coffee, which it does without any spills. Other glass carafes I have had did not pour as easily as this one. The plastic is the same as any other coffee maker I have used in the past. The thermal carafe keeps the coffee warm for hours. I have no complaints at all about this coffeemaker.

I can say with confidence, I would buy this coffee maker again because I did!
