Just doesn't hold up.

H. Martin, Amazon

  • Summary: This was the second one that I bought because I really like the concept; however, I had problems with both. The newest coffeemaker didn't last as long as the first. It started leaking the coffee down into the water reservoir as the coffee was brewing. There was another problem with the first one. Won't buy another one.

Coffee Time problems

Bentley002, shop your way
14 December 2012
  • Summary: We bought two of these for our church and have had nothing but complaints. Styrofoam does not work well with these and of course that is what we use. Now one won't stop running after the first cup.

Waste of Money

Sue in Indiana, reviews.lowes.com
27 November 2011
  • Summary: First we purchased a Cuisinart, that wound up replaced after six months by Cuisinart. When the second one quit working we decided to try the Hamilton Beach. It leaked all over the counter, dripped in the front, then one day decided not to work anymore - after about six months. No more of these. Not worth the money.
  • Cons: Low quality, Not durable

Don't do it

6 July 2011
  • Summary: We have tried two of these coffee makers as we liked the idea of it. They each worked for about a year and a half fine....then they started leaking all over the place. Brother in law has one and it does the same. We cleaned and cared for it properly--Poor quality!

Never again!

Bill, reviews.lowes.com

  • Summary: Bought this coffee maker on 9 April, 2001. Made 9 pots of coffee over 9 days. Unit stopped wornking on the 10th day. Returned it , got the same model (thought I'd give it another try), made another pot,set the timer, worked fine. Later after getting it ready for the next morning, April 19th 2011, the timer would not work. Never again will I buy this brand.Two bad ones in a row just don't get it.

Regular coffee & travel mugs don't work with this product

bcscho, Amazon
12 July 2010
  • Summary: When my old Hamilton Beach brew station died, I bought the less expensive Hamilton beach but it leaked. So I purchased the BrewStation Summit Ultra, #48465, and am extremely disappointed. Apparently the designers don't drink coffee or didn't test the design. The spout is so close to the dispensing button that any mug wider than a thin tea cup spills over!

Bad Tasting Coffee

Walmart
22 June 2010
  • Summary: We bought this coffee maker yesterday and immediately made a pot of coffee. It worked fine and the coffee tasted good. This morning we made coffee again and it tasted so bad we couldn't drink it. We washed the plastic container and tried making another pot to see if the taste was better. It wasn't. We think the burner is affecting the plastic of the container because the coffee tastes like plastic.
