Summary: EDIT 28 AUG 2013: This replacement failed after just three months. It started to leak around the coffee tub's metal heating pad, and no amount of screw tightening will repair the leak. When it arrived, I noticed that it was clearly not made as well as the older one; we expected it to fail sooner but not this soon. Conclusion: Lemon. Maybe I can cobble together a working tub out of the parts of the two broken ones, but I'd rather just buy a Technivorm.
Summary: This is our fourth BrewStation. We were in love with the first one. The second and third iterations weren't as good, but we tolerated them. We've even given several as gifts. But this new one...we won't even tolerate. It stinks. How in the world can each successive machine get worse? As other reviewers have said, the coffee doesn't come out hot enough to drink and has to be microwaved...or you have to wait half an hour until it heats up.
Summary: The Hamilton Beach Brewstation has a lot of pros and one big con: Pros: Absolutely the best design in a coffe maker on the market No glass carafe to wash or break Easy, push button coffee access Cons: POOR RELIABILITY This is my fifth and LAST Hamilton Beach Brewstation. Each one has lasted about a year.
Summary: This is the greatest coffee machine Hamilton Beach ever made. It is the second one we have bought. We wore out the first one after 5 years and I looked on Amazon and sure enough they had the same one only a newer model. It is great,and we will use this one a long time. No pot to wash or break and we can set it to turn on 15 minutes before we get up so we have fresh made coffee every morning. We will never go back to the old coffee pots again.
Summary: This was my first experience purchasing a BrewStation Coffeemaker. I wanted something that would do away with the carafe and the thermos that I poured the coffee into to keep it hot after it was made. After reading the comments on the Hamilton Beach 47665 I decided to purchase one and I have been very pleased with my purchase.
Summary: Love my Hamilton Beach Brew Station. Great cup of coffee..HOT to start the day. Timer is a fabulous addition to have the coffee hot and ready to savor to start the day! Recommend highly. Priced well on Amazon and delivered in great condition to the front door without the hassle and going to the mall fighting the traffic, search for a parking space and dragging the box back to the car.
Summary: I bought this for work, it is used daily. About 15 people use it, all heavy coffee drinkers. All agree this is the best coffee maker we've had. And we've gone through about 8 different coffee makers of them.
