BLACK+DECKER & Decker CM620B Programmable Single Serve Coffee Maker – It’s convenient and easy to clean

Husband is very anti-keurig and wanted to be able to make his cup of coffee stronger so he loves this. I had bought one for my best friend for her birthday since she didn’t want a keurig and hubby saw it and was jealous so i turned around and ordered him one too.

Perfect proportion for one person and just what i wanted. Fits the normal size travel cups.

This machine is absolutely incredible. I don’t understand how keurig is in business with these things floating around. You can dump whatever coffee you want, and make it as strong as you want. Just rinse out the removable permanent filter, and you’re good to go for another cup.The time programming works flawlessly, and it is so easy to run this with just a tea bag, for those tea drinkers out there like myself. I wish there was a way to increase the height, so that i could fit a thermos or travel mug under there, but as long as i find something under 8′ tall (the size of the gap), i think i’ll manage.

Works great, fits in my room without taking up much dresser space, and the filter is easy to clean.

It’s a little slow to brew 1 cup of coffee. If i knew it was this slow, i would have not bought it. I do like the little filter and being able to put coffee grinds in it but kuerig is way faster.

I’ve had this coffee maker a several years and love it. My husband likes strong coffee so he uses senseo extra strong (sometimes 2 soft pods) and i like colombian so i use senseo columbia blend. When i called black & decker for a new permanent filter they didn’t have my model so sent a whole new coffee maker for a big discount (1/2 price, i think).

  • Best coffeemaker I have ever used.
  • Keurig-Killer
  • Great, affordable, programmable coffee maker

We bought this one for my husband to take to work, since we have one at home and really liked it.

This works quite a bit better than other similar coffee makers i’ve had. The timer function is kind of useless as there is no warming plate to keep coffee hot. That said, it takes 3 minutes tops to brew a cup.

I’m not a coffee connoisseur, but this works well enough for me. It’s convenient and easy to clean.

I really like my new coffee maker.

I’ve had my coffee maker for two weeks now and it’s exactly what i wanted. I am the only person who drinks coffee in my household and i love to just make a cup or thermos of coffee. The coffee tastes great (i ran the coffee maker twice with just plain water as instructed, did not try any other tricks like lemon or vinegar) and i never experienced any ‘plastic’ taste that other reviewers mention with the permanent filter. Perma filter very easy to clean. The adjustable stand is a little silly (you stack the tray by flipping both pieces upside down to make the stand taller for a cup as opposed to a thermos) and i was taken off guard by the leftover coffee drips that came spilling out when i first tried, but otherwise it is great. I am glad i spent a little extra money for the programmable feature. Attractive and takes up very little space.

Looks good, and is space efficient but other than that it’s a waste of money. Maybe it’s defective but i wouldn’t recommend this product. Updated: the first that i received was defective and i was contacted by the company and sent a replacement. So i’m updating my review due to the great business practices of the company. My coffee maker that has been replaced seems to work just fine.

I’ve had it for a couple months now, making about a cup a day, and it’s working fine. The instructions for setting the timer were wrong but i figured it out – you hold the button instead of pressing it, i think was the problem. I forget; i actually rarely use the timer because it’s so quick to just make a cup in the morning. On the advice of other reviewers i’ve been getting cone-shaped filters and cutting them to fit, which makes it super easy to clean.

This is a fine little coffee maker if you are willing to put up with the following. There are coffee dregs at the bottom of each cup i make. I’ve even customized a filter and the dregs are still there. Once the coffee is brewed, the machine shuts off. I like this because i can’t go away for the weekend and leave the unit on. I dont like it because the bottom plate is not a warmer, so once your coffee is ready, you should not leave it for later consumption (this explains why an earlier review said it didn’t keep the coffee warm – not designed to hold temperature). Not all of the water passes through at each brewing so you need to add a little extra to compensate. I like the small footprint for less counter space used.

Nice product except for not having the option of using a paper filter. I accepted this tradeoff for the benefit of well made coffee (temperature and water flow are good), and a 1-2 cup brewer that has a clock based brewing setting. The built in filter is ok, but it yields coffee that has fines like a french press (the coffee tastes good for that style though). As soon as one comes out that has makes coffee well, has timer based brewing, and allows using a paper filter, this one will go to the local goodwill though.

Amazon tells me i bought this little trooper 2. Since then, it’s been with me for a cup every morning and two on weekends. I live on my own, which is good, since it’s easily overwhelmed– it heats up quite a bit, and it probably needs to rest half an hour or so between cups of coffee. The little clock on the side is so bright that it doubles as an emergency beacon/batsignal/personal lighthouse/ night light, if you’re in a studio (i put two post-its over mine).

I was looking for a single cup coffee maker that is easy to use and affordable and this product fit what i wanted. The price of this b&d coffee maker was similar in price to others, however it contained a plastic re-usable coffee filter and have a programmable system as well.


This is great for making one cup of coffee in the morning. I can let it brew right into my travel mug.

Fantastic deal for the price. I use it to brew 20 ounces of coffee in the morning, so i brew 10 ounces twice. Brew 1st 10oz, empty used grounds from filter cup, rinse cup, re-fill ground coffee & water, ready to brew again.

Does the same exact thing your keurig would (except you can make a lot larger cup) for a lot less money. Plus you can buy your favorite coffee in bulk without relying on the expensive k-cups. It might take you two minutes instead of 30 seconds like the keurig but it is well worth it.

Had this for about 6 months now and love it. It’s simple to operate and at a good price. The programmable feature is easy to set and reset, and there’s a nice amount of room for tall cups.

Bought this for my son’s first apartment. Small, simple does the trick for one person. Just not so good for a several person home since it only holds enough water for one cup.

It produces a hot cup of coffee just like it promises. I like how i add as much water as i want coffee. Unlike the kurig that only has 2 settings. Another bonus is it has a clock timer.

Removable filter basket

Has a whole in the back for overflow but that is messy if you do that. Size is nicer than the unit i replaced. Programming is fine but i do not use that. Wish it brewed faster as it is closer to five min.

I do really like it, but it is not the easiest to clean sometimes. The reusable basket is especially something i worry is not clean enough, but i do like that it’s keeping me from making additional waste, plus you save money on coffee filters/ not having to buy single serve k cups. I used to use a keurig, and i like that this one takes up much less space on the counter, plus it’s tall enough to fit my travel mugs, and it has the programable option my keurig didn’t. I’ve had this for a while but only used it for a few months, and i feel like it has held up nicely, especially for the price.

Great product for a great price.

A gift for mom works great as would expect with consumer reports high rating.

I have had it for a while now and works great. I read in previews reviews that it is slow; and yes it is, however to me that is key to getting a great tasting cup of coffee with out wasting coffee. I simply have it set for auto brew so in the morning when i get downstairs my coffee is ready and to perfection. You do have to play with the coffee to water ratios but once you know your measurements you are set.

Medium quality coffee compliments a wonderful timer, simple interface, and overall good build quality. This has become a great every-day tool at a pretty affordable price. The missing star is because the coffee gets a little burnt. But quite frankly, this is for the amazing convenience, not the coffee quality.

I don’t have the financial resources to try every single-serve coffeemaker out there only to dispose of it or donate it after a period of time. I learned of this model from consumer reports and read every review out there before making the final decision to buy it. The result: best coffeemaker i have ever used and purchased. I drink coffee 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year because i am addicted to caffeine and this coffeemaker works like a heavyweight champion. It can brew and fill up my contigo 16-oz travel mugs with hot fresh coffee within 5 minutes. It is so light and portable that i can bring it to work and brew up coffee when i need it. In addition, it saves me tons of $$$ by allowing to me to use the best brands of ground coffee on sale instead of resorting to using wasteful keurig k-cup single serve coffee. Furthermore, you can program the coffeemaker to brew coffee at a set time so that it is ready when you need it. No negatives i can think of with this model.

Automatic shutoff

Well, this coffee does what it’s supposed to do; make coffee. It’s perfect for us because we don’t drink that much coffee, but a just cup here and there. The programmable feature is nice, however we unplug this most of the time and the time it takes to program it over and over again is not worth it. So we just hit the start button in the morning instead, which is very easy to do. I was bordering on 4 stars for this, but because of the strange smell it had for the first, maybe couple months, after we bough it?. I had to knock it down to 3. It has a weird plastic/ chemical smell to it after arriving. I cleaned and used vinegar and boiling water over and over again and it just wouldn’t go away. I could slightly taste the smell in the coffee as well. Luckily the smell is gone now.

Only issue is i can’t figure out why the cover pops open right at the end of the brew cycle. Coffee is hot and delicious.

It’s exactly what i needed and the water was hot enough for me.

Got it today, got it set up. Nothing fancy, just like i wanted. Makes one very tasty cup at a time for my death wish coffee. 🙂 coffee basket is huge which i love, i use 3 scoops at a time. Holds enough water for my big mugs, no problem. If ya want it simple, no k-cups, just brew your own coffee, this it a great little machine. Very small footprint on the counter top.
