Black & Decker Corporation is an American manufacturer of power tools and accessories, hardware and home improvement products, and technology based fastening systems. On March 12, 2010, Black & Decker merged with Stanley Works to become Stanley Black & Decker. It remains as a wholly owned subsidiary of that company, but maintained its own headquarters in Towson, Maryland; a suburb of Baltimore.
The Black and Decker brand is mostly associated with power tools, home improvement and hardware.
Most of Black and Decker’s coffee line consists mainly of small appliances, many of which are types of automatic and easy to use, programmable, 12 cup coffee makers. This machine represents the most popular domestic coffee appliance in the United States.
The Black and Decker coffee range also consists of coffee grinders and single cup coffee makers as well as an automatic gooseneck kettle. This type of kettle is extremely popular and useful for pour over coffee brewing. Compared to a regular goose neck kettle for which water needs to be separately heated or heated on the stove, an automatic goose neck kettle acts as a regular kettle in that it heats water using electricity but goes one step further for coffee brewing by heating to specific specifications. This is extremely useful as optimum coffee brewing temperature is below boiling and so coffee is burnt when it is brewed with boiled water from a regular kettle.
