Summary: I bought this to replace another Hamilton Beach I have had for 7 or 8 years. It is the best coffee maker I have ever owned. Broke the carafe and couldn't find another one so bought this replacement maker. So far it is just as good as the old one. None of the other makers I have owned come close to the quality of this one. Coffee comes out hot and the burner keeps it hot.
Summary: Just your average coffee pot. I bought one in black, which leaks and burns coffee. The red one has held up ok, but I don't trust that it will last long due to the malfunctions of the other. I wish I would have spent the extra money on Cuisinart or Kitchenaid.
so far so good,im glad i made this particular choice.guard9998

Summary: good product,great coffee,just wanted a change in my kitchen and the theme was red,and how can you go wrong with hamilton beach??my dislike is its a little tall and i cant raise the filler lid without pulling it out from under my cupboard,and its pretty darn nice looking.works great and when i see it the smile on my face is unmistakable.guard9998
Summary: I've used Bunn coffee makers for 20 years. I was sold on Bunn until I checked the prices of their programmable models. I was shocked. After reading reviews of the Hamilton Beach, I ordered one. For the first time in years I can actually "taste" the coffee...and it's piping hot! It works perfectly. If you buy one you won't be sorry...it's that good. If I broke it tonight, I'd order another one tomorrow.
Summary: I bought this coffee maker and paid more, for the nice design and good brand.There are several things that realy upset me in this coffee maker: The main thing is that to wash the glass carafe and take out the lid, is very hard since the lid does not came out easily so you can to put in the dishwasher and after you wash and you need to put together for the next use, it is very hard to put the lid back.
