However, before you start considering getting one of the under the counter coffee makers from Black and Decker, also consider the Contoure 10-Cup Built In Coffee Maker ICM-CCM1000.
This built-in style coffee maker is specifically designed to have parts that remain secure.
In other words, if you tilt the whole unit, the carafe, filter basket, and water reservoir won’t accidentally fall off.
This makes the Countoure ICM-CCM1000 ideal for yachts, RV’s, and homes if you need a coffee maker that you can install either under or over the counter (right under the cupboards for instance).
And the built-in design makes it very easy to install due to its Easy Mount System.
The machine measures 12 inches wide by 11 inches high by 9.5 inches deep.
It has a 24 hour programmable timer, very intuitive and easy to use control buttons, a convenient removable filter basket and water reservoir, an accurate and easy to read water level indicator, an automatic shutoff feature, and a thermal carafe.

The machine has a brewing time of approximately 7 minutes per 10 cups of coffee. It is able to heat up water to an acceptable brewing temperature of 190°F.
To indicate that the brewing process is finished, the machine makes an audible sound.
Coffee is brewed into a double wall insulated thermal carafe, which is able to keep the coffee hot for up to 4 hours.
Some say this is the best drip coffee maker 2018.
Since this machine makes use of a thermal carafe, it automatically shuts off after brewing, and has no need for warming plates to keep the coffee at the ideal serving temperature.
This also eliminates any possibility of having “overcooked coffee”, which usually results from a carafe or decanter that has been sitting on a warming plate for too long.
Overall, the Contour ICM-CCM1000 is a great addition to the under cabinet coffee maker market and is a worthy competitor of the more popular Black and Decker Space Maker line.
