Black and Decker DCM2000 12 Cup Coffee Maker Summary: All depends on your point of view. Some users complained that it took too long to brew, while others claimed it brewed quickly. Brewing takes approximately 5 minutes or less. Also, complaints about being cheaply made. Again, others said it was just what they were looking for. I guess it all comes down to you get what you pay for. If you want a machine without all the bells and whistles at a reasonable cost, then this is for you. If you like all the bells and whistles and want a machine that will last for 5 to 10 years, this isn't for you. Something I notice a lot is complaints that are probably due to you getting a lemon. In those cases, just return the item or exchange it. If the vast majority of reviews are positive, then you probably have just gotten a lemon.
