Summary: I bought this one to replace my old Hamilton Beach coffeemaker that I've had for years. The coffee gets really hot to the point where it tastes a little burnt by the time I fix a second cup. Thankfully, it turns off automatically after 2 hours. That's my only complaint and getting used to the cone shaped filters.
Comparatively, -The Best Programmable Coffee Maker

Summary: Blending our own origins, we are serious coffee drinkers in our family. Having been through many styles of coffee makers, this Hamilton Beach has been thee best longest lasting coffee maker I have ever owned. Programmable for pre-set brew time, slim, lightweight, brews fast. This pot pours perfectly! Waiting tables at rush hour with Bunn coffee pots -I know this pot is a good pour. No spills or drips.
Summary: I've used probably a dozen different coffee-makers in the past, including cheap $10.00 jobs. This one is the worst. Constantly overflows, despite every precaution. Hamilton Beach said it is because we need to clean the unit and make sure the grounds are ground properly. It is a brand new unit, and the grounds are custom ground at Starbucks for a cone filter. Piece of garbage. Going in the trash.
Summary: The house we are renting came with a new one of these. It's been 10 months of brewing 2 pots a day and I was pleased with the product until recently. It now takes close to an hour to brew a full pot and half the water evaporates before it's finished so I have to add more. My guess is that it may need a good cleaning which I'll do next otherwise we'll have to get a new one and it probably won't be a HB. I'll update this review over the weekend after the cleaning.
Summary: our 4 cup maker actually only produced 2 good sized cups . This here unit will make enough coffee that you don't have to keep loading it every time you turn around . I am still looking for a source of "citavo" coffee sent out only to sysco commercial accounts , no luck yet .
Summary: This coffeemaker exceeds expectations!! It is durable, makes great fast coffee, and is a lot better than the market comparables in terms of overall ratings.. I recommended to buy this product, you will be satisfied.
Summary: The hot pad always makes sizzling sound during brewing even though the bottom of the pot has been dried before brewing. While pouring the coffee, there's always coffee dripping from from the edge of the coffee pot lid. Customer service will replace the unit only if the shipping expense is paid. Never buy from Hamilton Beach again!
