Makes decent hot coffee
Negative Product Points
"Finished Brewing" warning too loud
I bought the 12 cup B & D Smartbrew Deluxe. It uses a flat basket just like the Bunn coffee makers. This deluxe model comes with a digital LED timer. What I like most is the way I can ajuts the "Keep Warm" plate. It can be set from 1 to 7. The factory default is 5, but I like a HOT cup of coffee so I set it to 6. The 7 setting is just a little too hot for me. This coffee maker makes a good tasting cup of coffee. It came with a bonus coffee grinder. The see-through water indicator is easy to see. I like the way the lid opens up to add the cofffe. The water is easy to add. This machine seems the be fairly well built. I have tried many other machines, but I like the adjustability of the warming plate the best!
WalMart has this coffee maker with the bonus grinder.
