Black and Decker TCM830 Thermal Coffeemaker Summary: If you are looking for a coffee maker that keeps your coffee warm and doesn't have an easily breakable carafe, this is for you. However, if you want extremely hot coffee you should probably go with another model. For the price, you get a very good coffeemaker with a thermal carafe.
