Guide Review - Black & Decker Smart Brew Plus® 12-Cup Coffee Maker Model DCM2500

The consumer purchased this Black & Decker as a replacement, and finds it looks very nice on the counter, is easy to operate, handles nicely and the pouring is excellent.

The capacity of 12-cup is more than adequate, and it takes a convenient regular basket type or permanent filter. It also has a convenient interrupt feature, so you can pause to pour a cup of coffee. Maintenance is simple and the programmable clock timer is a very nice feature.

She does find that it brews noisily, and adequate room is also required under the cabinet in order to raise the large lid to set it up for a pot of coffee.

We just bought this machine and used it perhaps 8 times and now it doesnt work. The water doesn't even come up. It just makes a lot of noise and doesn't drip. looking for feedback if you have any out there. Thanks
