Summary: This coffee maker has worked well for us for three years. Unfortunately, the carafe broke, and Sunbeam says the item is "obsolete" and it doesn't make a replacement. We took a chance on the Medelco 12 Cup Millennium Style Carafe, Black GL312. It works better than the original carafe.
Summary: I bought this coffeemaker almost 6 years ago and it's perfect for me. It was easy to use, the water tank was removable - so easy to fill - and the coffee brewed fairly quickly. I had one small issue with the handle on the carafe becoming loose - quickly fixed with a screwdriver. Unfortunately I broke my carafe so now looking to replace that, but otherwise I love this coffee maker.
Summary: Great product, great price, nice looking, easy to use, progammable -- and it is well made just like the coffee makers from the past. Easy to fill and the key is that the water sprays out over the entire basket unlike most of the other higher priced brands which only has a stream of hot water hitting the middle of the basket. More water dispersion equals better tasting coffee.
Summary: This is the coffee maker that I have been searching for. I have purchased different brands but none have performed as good as this. I wanted a coffee maker that was simple to use & had a programmable feature. But most of all I was looking for two primary features, first that the carafe did not spill when poured and second and that it brewed cleanly. The last one that I had "spit" while it brewed causing droplets of coffee on the counter.
Summary: This is the second Sunbeam HDx23 Heritage coffee maker I've owned. I love it when it works -- keeps the coffee hot for tow hours, brews nicely, coffee has a great taste, BUT my first Sunbeam the water pumped stopped working after a year; my 2nd (yes, I purchased another because I liked it so much) just had one of the rubber tubes through which the water is pumped start leaking.
Summary: I love this coffeemaker! I have been using it for about a month now and its MUCH better then the Gevalia I had. It its super cute looking and unique! I love the removable water bucket (which I have never seen before, but love for cleaning and less mess when filling) as well as the removable filter. I have had no issues with leaking at all from the maker nor the pot. Totally worth the money and more!
Summary: purchased this coffeemaker to replace a"brewstation" that continually leaked water on the counter. this unit works great and is very simple to use. setting the timer for wakeup coffee is an easy process. cleaning and filling the unit makes it a good buy. also has a lighted clock that serves as a night light.
Summary: I have had more expensive coffee makers that were awful. This is the best coffee maker I have ever had. I love it. Coffee is HOT, pours easily with no mess, auto programs, uses basket filters, removable water container to take to sink instead of pouring in OR you can pour it if you like. You will not be disappointed. No complaints at all.
