My husbands coffee pot bit the dust the other day so we went in search of a new one for him. There are literally a billion options in case you didn’t know for coffee pots these days. We tried to aim for a not insanely expensive but decent one since his old one was a cheap plain non programmable one. I suggested he upgrade this time around and go for one that he could actually program. So here we are with the Black+Decker Programmable Coffee Maker.
I am not really a coffee drinker but I do make his for him most of the time so it took me a minute to figure everything out so far as programming it. Setting the time was super easy though. You just literally hit hour and the minute buttons until you get to the correct time. It will change to pm setting for time so just make sure you double check to make sure it is set right or it wont make coffee at the right time when you set it. That was my first little adventure so of course it started making coffee that night instead of the next morning. To program its really simple too. You just hit the program button and change the hour and minute to what you want and its ready to go! Well its ready to go once you also add your water and coffee anyways!
My husband likes his coffee really strong so he really loved that it had a brew strength setting. You just hit the button to set it to the strength desired. It does have a 1-4 cup setting that makes sure you dont lose any flavor by only making a smaller amount. All you have to do is push the 1-4 cup button and make the desired amount. The spout on the pot itself was my favorite thing aside from the whole programmable thing! It made it so much easier to pour in the water without worrying about water spilling everywhere which I had an issue with his old one doing.
Overall I am very pleased with this Coffee Pot. It works great and I love that it is programmable so I can just get everything ready and he can have coffee waiting when he gets up! No more early morning gas station trips wasting money on cups of coffee and energy drinks! I am sure you can find this at a variety of stores but we got ours from Walmart for $29.92.
