Decent Coffee Maker...lasted about a year
Reviewed in the United States on August 29, 2017
I think it's time to write a review now that my pot is dead. I would give it 3.5 stars if I could. I LOVED having the thermal carafe. The coffee was hot. It could've been a teensy bit hotter. The carafe kept it hot for 2-3 hours. Our clock lost time just like the other reviews said it would, so we couldn't program the coffee for the next morning. The carafe was getting water inside somewhere, so there would always be a few unsightly blackish drops on the counter after pouring. What proved to be the ultimate demise was that it began taking over an hour to brew a pot (even after a few cycles of vinegar). After some research we decided there was a clog somewhere. My husband was able to successfully remove the clog using his air compressor, and the coffee maker began working normally again. Within only a few weeks, it was clogged again. This time the air compressor proved to be too much as it caused a leak in the line somewhere. I have now purchased the Black and Decker 12-cup with thermal carafe (fingers crossed). Overall, I enjoyed this product. It lasted for just over a year.
