About - Black & Decker Home BCM1410B

The Black & Decker Home BCM1410B is part of the coffeemaker test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, drip coffeemaker models like the Home BCM1410B are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.


Brew performance:
The ability to reach 195° to 205° F for five or six minutes, the industry standard for optimal brewing.

Convenience:
Reflects ease of filling the reservoir, placing the filter, gauging the amount of coffee remaining, and cleaning up. It also reflects how clear we judged the controls.

Carafe handling:
Covers handle comfort, tendency to drip while pouring, balance of a full carafe, and how easy it was to empty the last liquid. Models with no score here brew into single-serve cups or are brew-and-dispense models. The latter hold the coffee in a tank; you fill your cup by pressing it against the dispenser lever.

Reservoir cover sticks
Best Uses
Comment:
I have a Black & Decker coffee maker which I find good except that it has to be pulled out from under the cabinets to open the reservoir cover.<br /><br />I bought this model for when I make decafe and regular for my friends. I found that i could not see the clock or the fill line easily. When pouring in the water using my right hand can't even see the fill line section. It is still too tall to open without pulling out on the counter and with arthritic hands it is hard to press and pull open the reservoir cover (which I did not have to do on the other one) I didn't even make coffee in it and it is going back to the store.
How long have you owned it:
A month or less
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
