Summary: I bought this for an anniversary present. They tell me they love it. She can make a single cup for herself and have hot water for other things she's cooking or she can brew a full pot for a group. Would recommend it to others..
Summary: I bought this product for my mother and she absolutely loves it! She make one cup of coffee for herself daily maybe 2 without extra coffee waste and when she wants to make extra coffee for company or herself she switches it over and makes a fuller pot. She is thrilled and I am glad I picked this for her.
Summary: Great product at a very reasonable price. Our last coffee maker, also a Hamilton Beach. Worked very well and made good coffee, but the pot tended to dribble when pouring and the lid hinge broke almost immediately. This new coffee maker does not seem to have these problems. The only down-side is that it must be manually turned off, because this model has no timer. However, the lack of a timer is probably the main reason the cost is so reasonable.
Pros: Purchased because of many favorable reviews; *consistently* makes much better tasting French roast coffee (we grind beans separately) than prior coffee maker; owned over 5 months, works like a champ!; much easier to fill with water than replaced major make coffee maker
Cons: did not understand one plastic piece for separate included coffee to go cup, but still works with or without it, but does not affect 5 stars in any way.
Summary: I love this product! I use it daily. The single cup brewer makes this unique. Can make 12 cups or a single cup of my favorite coffee and it comes with pod holder too, virtually 3 ways to make coffee. I use pods for tea and hot cocoa. I also like the shape and design.
Summary: Excellent coffee maker. I purchased this unit because I like to drink a variety of flavors but I am the only one in the household who does. Mornings demand a full pot for a crowd but late afternoons are just for me. Since I don't like brewing more than one cup for the afternoon, this product was perfect!
