Summary: Ok, in my family, I am the only one who drinks coffee. My wife does not. This coffee maker is perfect for myself. It allows me two full 14oz mugs of coffee without wasting an entire pot on just myself.
Summary: I also bought one of these expecting it to make more coffee that a 4 cup coffee maker of another brand only to discover that it makes a little less - about 3.75 cups. A cup is a standard unit of measure equaling 8 ounces.
Summary: I bought this coffee maker for my dad, and it seemed to work well with the BIG exception that it does NOT make 6 cups of coffee as stated! It makes 3, and not a drop more. I called Hamilton-Beach and the rep gave me some song and dance about using international standards, their "cup" equals 4 oz.
