  • VersaBrew-Ha-Ha

    Jan 30, 2002 by pogomom is a Lead on Epinions in Home and Garden
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Digital timer; Non-stick hot plate; Sneak-a-Cup feature
    Cons: Quirky configuration of the swing-out filter basket and carafe lid.

    Summary: Black and Decker™ makes mighty fine hand tools. The same concern created a toaster oven my mother swears by and a simple iron yours truly abused by neglect for more than a decade. The tiny Handy/Chopper™ resting upon my countertop gets plenty of use ... read more

  • frequent spills but otherwise usable

    Sep 21, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Cheap. Drip-stop, timer, alarm.
    Cons: Easy to spill, hard to refill.

    Summary: It is hard to find a $20 coffee maker based on the old Mr. Coffee design these days. This was the best I could find, but I'm somewhat disappointed. Features: drip-stop - pot can be removed while brewing. Auto-off - pot heater turns off after 2 ... read more

  • VersaBrew Plus - A "Plus" Or Not?

    May 26, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Automatic timer, automatic shutoff, and sneak-a-cup feature.
    Cons: Difficult to pour water from pot to reservoir, and difficult to clean.

    Summary: Recently, our old coffee pot at work finally brewed its last pot of coffee, so we went in search of a replacement. Our choice was the Black & Decker 12-Cup VersaBrew Plus. At first glance, this coffee maker appeared to have all the bells and whistles ... read more

  • Black and Decker's Carafe Gaffe

    Feb 3, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Auto shut-off, automatic timer, sneak-a-cup, reasonably priced.
    Cons: Carafe can't pour without spilling. Basket removal is difficult. Coffee not hot enough for me.

    Summary: When our old faithful coffee maker died, I scurried right out to Wal-Mart to buy another so that there would be no disruption in our morning coffee ritual. I should have scurried right to my computer and looked up coffee makers on epinions. Instead, I ... read more

  • Died after only 4 months!

    Jan 10, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: zip, zero, zilch, nada!
    Cons: carafe drips horribly, difficult to clean, hard to fill, died young (thankfully!)

    Summary: Christmas Eve Morning, 4:15 a.m. I'd programmed the coffeemaker to start brewing at 4:10, anticipating a fresh cup of coffee when we stumbled into the kitchen. The light was on, but the tank was still full of water, the grounds waiting patiently for ... read more

  • Great-tasting american coffee!

    Jul 21, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great coffee, very fast
    Cons: The plate can't keep the coffee warm

    Summary: Hi there! I'm an Italian guy who loves american coffee! It may seems strange, but italian coffee is ... read more

  • Braun, Good to the last drip...er...drop.

    Mar 24, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Nice looking design.
    Cons: Leaks, drips and otherwise makes as much of a mess as a puppy.

    Summary: I was the happy owner of a Braun coffee pot for 7 years, when I decided that I wanted a new one. First I must say that the Braun I owned for 7 years never gave me one ounce of trouble, only cup after cup of wonderful coffee. After going through nearly ... read more

  • You Get What You Pay For

    Jan 2, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Inexpensive, Keeps Coffee Hot
    Cons: You have to remove the carafe to swing the filter basket in and out

    Summary: I recently bought a Black and Decker Versabrew Coffeemaker because it was on sale for 18.99 from 29.99. I wanted a decent coffeemaker and figured since the regular price was higher than the cheapee $20 makers, it would be a good buy. It makes ... read more

  • Parts nightmare

    Sep 17, 2002 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: auto-shut off, sneak-a-cup feature
    Cons: basket design, parts replacement procedures

    Summary: I liked the coffeemaker, even getting used to the basket design. The stop button and spring fell off, got thrown away accidentally. Tried to explain to the B&D parts people, told me I needed whole basket (cost of 10.47 on my credit card). Sent me 2, ... read more

  • Poorest design I have ever seen.

    Sep 11, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: The timer works.
    Cons: Everything else.

    Summary: Whoever designed this coffee maker has never made a pot of coffee. All the good options are there but so poorly executed that this coffee maker is a daily annoyance. The reservoir fills in the back like many others but the lid on it is tall and ... read more

  • Black & Decker Versa Brew Plus Coffee Maker = good coffee

    Jun 8, 2002 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: good design, price competitive
    Cons: really can't think of anything

    Summary: We recently purchased the Black & Decker Versa Brew Plus Coffee Maker. We’ve had it for about a month now. It's a very good coffee maker. I like the water level on the side and the coffee strength adjuster. We had a Philips coffee maker, which was ... read more

    Mar 7, 2002 by

    Pros: Inexpensive, nice features, easy to clean
    Cons: Carafe does spill some, but nothing major.

    Summary: Once again we found ourselves needing a new coffee maker and we came across the Black & Decker 12-Cup VersaBrew Plus Programmable Coffeemaker DCM1250. We weren't looking for anything fancy, just one that would brew a good pot of coffee and last a ... read more

  • Let Black & Decker try pouring from this one.

    Feb 26, 2002 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: none . . oh I guess it makes coffee.
    Cons: glass carafe design turns pouring into a mopping chore.

    Summary: Let me begin by stating I owned a Mr. Coffee for over 8 years that worked perfectly. So maybe I was just spoiled. I guess I figured "how hard can it be", but I know I'll never go with Black & Decker again. The glass carafe is so poorly ... read more

  • Coffee Lovers!

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Not very costly, works great!
    Cons: None for the price you pay.

    Summary: My mom purchased this coffee pot for me. Ever since I have been loving making coffee! I can turn the timer on at night so that I can wake up to the great smell and taste of coffee! Also, I am one of the most forgetful people on the world, so I would ... read more

  • Not a bad machine at all.

    Jan 11, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Cheap, works well, lasts a long time.
    Cons: For the 30 bucks I paid...none.

    Summary: I picked one of these up for the Missus as I would come home for lunch and would smell the coffee burning that she left on while running out the door for work. I figured I need a pot with auto start and auto stop to keep the place from burning down. ... read more

  • Heaven in a coffee maker..........

    Jan 9, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Good, fast coffee even after 5 years of use.
    Cons: Carafe is a little small if you have coffee loving friends over.

    Summary: This is my first review so go easy on me, ok guys? :) I'll get right to the point here because I'm not much of a storyteller. We bought this coffee maker 5 years ago and, at the time, it was the best one we'd ever bought. I used, I think, ... read more

  • Do yourself a favor and skip this maker!

    Jan 7, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Inexpensive
    Cons: POOR Design!

    Summary: Please bear with me, this is my first review. I HAD to sign myself up just so I can vent about my unhappiness with this product. As a avid coffee addict, I've had many coffee makers in the past mostly Mr. Coffee and Proctor Silex. I ... read more

  • I HATE THIS COFFEE MAKER!!!!

    Jan 1, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Timer Function
    Cons: ALWAYS spills, Basket is difficult to get out, "Sneak-A-Cup" feature coffee is like syrup.

    Summary: The carafe with this maker is TERRIBLE!! It has a "wide-lip" that ALWAYS spills when you pour the water into the pot to make coffee and when you pour your first 5-6 cups of coffee. The only time it doesn't spill is if the pot is less than half full. ... read more

  • Totally Useless

    Pros: Compact, neat.
    Cons: Difficult basket removal, poor design.

    Summary: Since I am the only coffee drinker in the house, I survived for a long time on instant coffee. I finally gave in and decided to purchase a coffee maker. Not wanting to spend a great amount of money and relying on the Black & Decker name for the quality ... read more

  • Spilled Coffee

    Aug 15, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Inexpensive. Timer for auto brewing. Auto-shutoff to pour while brewing. Looks good.
    Cons: Poorly designed carafe and lid. Poorly designed basket.

    Summary: When I buy coffee makers, I look for a timer so the coffee will be brewed when I stumble into the kitchen, and an auto-shutoff so I can pour when it's still brewing. Things like the carafe design and basket holder should be a given. But the ... read more
