Nice Cheap Coffeemaker

Kara Smith, Amazon
15 October 2014
  • Summary: So far, so good. I do like the easy pour spout on the carafe, that's a nice feature. Other than that, it's your standard coffee maker, thus far I've had none of the electrical or heating issues that others have had with it. I will say the lights for power and programming are SUPER bright on this, so it illuminates your entire kitchen which may be annoying if you have an open floor plan home like myself and you like it to be dark at night, but big picture, I have no...

Good Coffeemaker

  • Summary: This is my second Hamilton Beach coffeemaker of this style. First one lasted a couple of years before going south, and this one has an added option of either regular or strong coffee.

Great Coffee!

Theo "Ted", Amazon
2 September 2014
  • Summary: After using MC coffee maker brands these past 10 years (leaking decanters-premature element failures-fair coffee taste), went to the reviews and decided on this HB Ensemble 12 cup maker. Wow, besides a Great pouring decanter and great unit looks, the coffee comes out perfect every time! Keeping proportions equal, our morning java is rich and full bodied tasting. It seems to take a little longer, but the daily extra minute of wait these past 5 months is Worth Every Drop!

Use caution - problem with shut off

April Homich, Amazon
2 September 2014
  • Summary: I originally posted this in the reviews for the red version of this coffee maker (the black one wasn't available on Amazon), though I have had the black one twice. I will say that HB is going to refund my purchase price and the shipping of the replacement coffee maker, so I am happy about that. The review below is copied and pasted from my original.

Drip-free carafe

B. Goldfarb, Amazon
13 August 2014
  • Summary: Overall the product does what it’s supposed to do. Makes a great cup of coffee. Everything works, all the features and it looks good. The best part of it is the Drip-free carafe. As you know all companies say this but this is the first I found that really works as advertised, NO DRIPS! The only small issue I have is and it’s only small is the way you have to open the whole top lid to add water. I have it under a cabinet as most people do.

Great coffee maker

John Norman, Amazon
12 July 2014
  • Summary: Great coffee maker. It has held up to heavy use for the past year. The carafe pours very well with little spillage. It may take a little longer to brew than other coffee makers, but it brews a great cup of coffee and there haven't been any leaks like my last maker.

Bought in December, dead by May

Cyd, Amazon
21 June 2014
  • Summary: This is a cute coffee maker; the color is adorable, it is compact, and works well...for a while. My husband (the coffee drinker in the family) used this about every other day from when we received it in December. It leaked every once in a while, leading to floods of coffee all over the counter but we chalked it up to user error (maybe we put too much coffee in the basket or too much water in the tank). Then one day in May it just refused to work.
