Best Buy Customer Reviews
love the flexibility!
Posted by: stonecat from: on
We got this for Christmas and I love it! My husband brews alot of coffee, and it's usually the same kind each day. I prefer a little more variety. This allows me to brew my own cup and just the right amount based on the size cup that I want to drink without wasting a whole pot. I've tried both the kcup mode and the ground mode and I get a great cup every time! I did have an issue with some coffee that was very finely ground when I just added grounds (it overflowed) but we also bought some refillable k-cups so I tried the finely ground coffee in the k-cup (removing the k-cup insert so it wouldn't puncture the cup) and and it worked perfectly. I've also used the refillable k-cups to add loose tea and it was delicious. I love that the machine turns off automatically when it's done brewing.

This coffee maker is exactly what we were looking for. My husband drinks regular coffee and I drink decaf. Additionally, I wanted the ability to use K-cups from time to time and he did not want anything to do with K-cups (thinks they are too costly to use compared to using ground coffee). So, when I saw the Flex-Brew model advertised on Hamilton Beach's website, I definitely wanted to buy it. Turns out that Best Buy beat Hamilton Beach's price by $10, and free shipping, so it was the right deal at the right time. If you buy one, you definitely MUST follow the instructions explicitly. You CANNOT use finely ground coffee, or put in more water than stated in the instructions, or you will definitely have a mess on your hands. Follow the manufacturer's directions regarding it's use and you will love it!!

Makes good coffee - sometimes
Posted by: gcamp from: on
If you are only going to use grounds this maker is probably okay for you. If you are going to use K-cups, then keep shopping. The needle quite often gets clogged with grounds and you have to use a paperclip / toothpick to unclog it (sometimes getting hot water spewed on you). I called Hamilton Beach customer service and their solution was to use the paperclip and clean the maker with vinegar. We use RO water, so the maker stays quite clean. And it's clogged on K-cups since it was first opened - I don't believe a dirty unit is a contributing factor in this instance. I was really disappointed in HB that they acknowledged the problem, but just shrugged it off as "that's just the way it is."
So, if you are looking at this maker as an alternative to a Keurig, then keep shopping. This is not the maker you are looking for....

Very happy with this item. Love the slim design!
Posted by: shogan80 from: Atlanta, GA on
Bought this on sale and very happy with it. Love that you can brew k-cups and regular coffee with this unit. I like the fact that the water is not stored and that you have to fill it with the water needed before each brew. It takes about 2 minutes from fill of water to drinking coffee which I am fine with. I also love that it auto shuts off once done brewing and it's extremely easy to use! The slim design is great for kitchens with small spaces or even at a desk in your office if your boss is not picky about that type of thing.

Finally, a different coffee maker that uses K-Cups
Posted by: tdmort from: Ohio on
I am the only one in my household that drinks coffee and have been wanting the "expensive" brand coffee maker for sometime now. However, I couldn't justify spending a huge amount of money on making coffee at home. I saw this online at a fraction of the cost of the "expensive" brand and bought it. I couldn't be happier. Not only is the cost of this coffee maker in my budget, it makes a great cup of coffee using K-cups. I also like that I can use my own ground coffee as well. Do not waste your money on the "expensive" brand that seems to never go on sale. This coffee maker is a breeze to use and the taste is great!

Finally a 2-in-1 at a great price!
Posted by: HoneyB98 from: Cincinnati, OH on
I was looking for a single cup brewer and after looking for a long time, I decided to just go with a pricey Keurig. But just before I bought one, I looked again and found this one! I like brewing fresh coffee and wanted the option of using K-cups as well. This does both superbly! I know there are some negative comments about a couple things, but if you follow directions correctly like it says, then you will have no problems. I've had mine for a while now and brewed both ways and haven't had one issue.

Great one-cup machine!
Posted by: Masmics from: on
I bought this for a gift and my husband loved it. In my opinion, k-cups are a gimmick and pretty wasteful, although with effort they can be recycled (by peeling off the foil top, emptying the cup and completely tearing out the paper filter), but this maker doesn't require them! It comes with its own, regular metal mesh filter, so the k-cups are completely optional. I included a box of good quality k-cups with the gift just for fun, and he does use them once a week or so if he has an extra rushed morning. His favorite travel mug fits perfectly in the maker, and the stand converts to hold a regular sized mug without splashing coffee everywhere. It works pretty quickly and the coffee is delicious!

NOT compatible with ANY coffee pack
Posted by: wendyannebc from: on
Hamilton Beach states on their website, on the box, and on the machine itself that it is compatible with ANY pack. I have bought 3 different kinds of pods and I am unable to use them as a single serve pack. I have had to cut them open and put the coffee in the filter to get some return on the money I have spent. It does not work well with fine grind or espresso/Turkish grind.

I bought this to take camping and make coffee with very containable waste so not to attract wild animals to my camp site. It performed perfectly. In fact I was also able to use it to heat water for instant oatmeal and other instant foods, although in those instances it was tricky to get the correct amount of water.

Since my husband and I are up a different times, having this product
ensures us both of having a fresh cup of coffee. We can use the
K cups or our own choice of coffees.
