      I needed a new programmable coffee maker to replace a much more expensive Frigidare unit that stopped brewing after a year and a couple of days. After looking at all of them online, I found this one. I liked it because the price was right ($45 or so), it keeps coffee warm (or hot) for up to 4 hours (or more if you reset it), and it's a dispenser rather than a coffee pot. I mostly don't care about the dispenser part except that the last cup of coffee doesn't get "fried" from sitting in a pot on a burner. The last cup is as good as the first. One of the best features with this coffee maker is that the coffee basket and the water/coffee container can be removed for easy day-to-day cleaning and for making coffee at counter level. After cleaning, I put both on the counter, fill the water container to the 12 cup level (12 cups max), then pour the water into the coffee maker at a much lower level than most coffee makers. It's far less awkward this way. Then I put the container back in place to receive the coffee when it's made. The coffee basket, with a paper filter (a wire mesh filter is available) takes 6 standard scoops for a full 12 cups. It can also be filled at counter level, then placed back in the coffee maker. Unlike other coffee makers, this prevents accidentally dumping coffee into the water reservoir. Yes, I've seen that happen and cleaning it out is a mess. When the coffee is brewed, it goes into the container that you poured the water into on the counter top, ready to easily dispense. My only "objection" is that when the coffee is done, there's only one quiet beep that can't easily be heard outside the kitchen. This may be a feature so as not to wake anyone else who's sleeping. Regardless, for regular coffee, it takes 10 minutes to brew. For "Bold" coffee it takes about 15 minutes. As for durability, I rated the coffee maker as excellent, but I've only had it for a couple of months and nothing has broken yet. Time will tell, I'm sure.

      don't believe the hype

      so, I bought this 8 months ago due to the positive reviews and design that seemed alot like the coffee maker at work. While it works, here are the irks I have with the design. 1. There is a 2 inch long metal strip inside the coffee tank that is responsible for keeping the coffee heated. After a brew or two, coffee will adhere to the heated metal and will need some elbow grease to get it off. Surrounding the metal are these plastic spikes (for no apparent reason) - which makes cleaning the metal strip more difficult than it needs to be. 2. The coffee tub itself is not insulated - its just plastic. Not even glass lining like the coffee maker at work or the glass pots like others. Deal breaker. 3. The height of the coffee spout makes it difficult for some thermos to fit in. So you are left with putting it in a regular mug, then transferring it to the thermos. 4. The spout is angled inwards, making it a tad more difficult If I had to do it over again, I'd probably go with the old fashion coffee pot. P.S. I think the plastic spikes around the metal strip are placed so that the coffee drips onto the spikes.

      This coffee maker makes great tasting coffee. We find it very convenient that we no longer have to pour coffee the dispenser works great. At first the design will puzzle you if your used to conventional coffee makers but its relatively simple to operate. We purchased the 2 yr warranty since the price was so reasonable. The temperature of the coffee is perfect and you can make up to 12 cups that is kept warm up to 4 hours with no burnt taste. There is no plastic smell we simply followed set up instructions for cleaning and are very happy with this purchase. Consumer reports tested this unit and rated it highly. I fully agree and feel this was a great coffee maker at a great price. We use bunn filters for easy clean up.

      Great brew station

      This Brew Station delivers. Your coffee is always hot (steaming hot) up to 4 hours, which is programmable. Coffe stregth adjustment. If you like iced coffee you have that option. No spill one cup dispensing. No need to clean a carafe or worrying about breaking one for that matter. Super easy to clean as well. There's only a couple of downfalls I can see is that you are still subjected to having to use paper filters. I would pefer a wire basket. No big deal though. And, the LED display is super bright. Turn off all the lights and you could navigate by it, incredible. Still a great buy!!

      This is the third BrewStation that we have owned. The first one died after about ten years of service. We replaced it with another BrewStation Model: 48464. We returned the 48464 because the coffee was never hot enough, cooler than our original model, and the screw mounts in the bottom of the carafe made it difficult to clean. We replaced the 48464 with this model and are very pleased to have a great working BrewStation again. We have no complaints about this model other than the universal complaint that applies to all the coffee makers which is none of them have "hot" coffee. I am always popping my cup in the microwave for 30 seconds to get it hot enough for my liking. I hope this one lasts as long as our first BrewStation.

      No carafe, yet brews 12 cups

      I was looking for a coffee maker that does not require a glass carafe, which can easily break, but also keeps coffee sufficiently warm after brewing. Thermal carafes do not seem to keep coffee hot enough. I did not want an individual K-cup type maker because I wanted to be able to brew coffee for my husband and guests all at once. Plus those individual cups can add up in price. This one fits the bill. The only down side is that I occasionally spill the water when I am pouring it into the maker. Also, the machine has a tall profile, so I have to pull it out from under the cabinet every time I add coffee and water. Otherwise, this machine is a great value for the price and I am very pleased with it.

      This thing isn't perfect, the fill mechanism isn't the greatest, but it's a great coffee maker. The fill thing is not a big deal and we have literally bought this same coffee maker 3x. We use the heck out of it to the point where the manufacturer's name is no longer visible. It works great, keeps your coffee warm for hours and we love the way it dispenses the coffee. No need to pick up a pot and pour/splash, just use the dispenser! Just recently bought one of these after having the previous one for about 7 years or so. It still worked, but it just got old and we wanted a new one.

      I drink a pot every morning & usually don't care much for coffeemakers that continue heating after brewing, but when my old Cuisinart Grind & Brew (w/thermos) died recently, I picked up a Hamilton Beach Brew Station. I wasn't using the Grind & Brew blade grinder feature anymore, as I purchased a burr grinder a few years ago, but I loved the thermos. Have had the Brew Station for over a month & absolutely no complaints. Very simple design & easy cleanup. I have it programmed to keep warm for 2 hours & have not had a bitter cup - no worries about breaking decanters either! I haven't used the auto-brew cycle because I like freshly ground beans each morning.
