If you’re in the market for an affordable grind and brew coffee maker that is under $100 in price, the two machines we’re comparing today are definitely worth considering. We’ll be looking at the Black and Decker CM5000B and compare it to the Cuisinart DGB-625BC. Why these two? Because both are in the same price range of about $80.

Features of the Black and Decker CM5000B:

The Difference Between Black and Decker CM5000B and Cuisinart DGB-625BC:

Built-in Grinder Design:

  • The Black and Decker CM5000B uses an all-in-on grinder and filter design. This could make the cleaning process easier, but we’re not very sure of the quality of the grinder.
  • On the other hand, the Cuisinart uses a dedicated grinder that is separated from it’s gold-tone filter.

Water Filtration:

  • We all know that coffee is mostly water, and using fresh water makes all the difference. The fact that the Cuisinart has a built-in charcoal makes it possible to use tap water and the machine will automatically filter it. The Black and Decker lacks this feature.

Brewing Options:

  • Both machines give you the option to adjust the strength of your brew from mild to strong. You can also pause the brew before it fully ends.
  • With the Cuisinart, you can brew less than 12 cups and choose from 1 to 4 cups. The Black and Decker allows you to brew 4 cups as a minimum amount.

Which Should You Buy?

What we have here are two coffee makers that are quite similar in features. However, we do prefer the Cuisinart DGB-625BC for two reasons:

  • It has a better built-in grinder that is separated from the filter, unlike Black and Decker’s 2 in 1 design.
  • Its water filter should contribute a lot to a better coffee quality.
