    Finally, a drip coffee maker that has all the right features and functions that all others should have and at very reasonable price. I have owned & used several "big name" & fairly expensive makes (well over $75.00) that weren't this good! Simple basket/filter arrangement. No more trying to get a basket cover on "just right" so as not to smash the filter down with the resulting grinds getting behind it and into the pot! I really like the regular and bold brew selection. It makes it easier to compensate for medium and dark roast ground coffee blends w/o the waste! One big improvement over the many makes I have used for 30+ years is that now I can pour the water in and the coffee out rapidly with out spilling any of either!! That annoyed the heck out of me right up until I bought this one. My Wife also likes the Red color that matches some of Her kitchen decor. The control buttons are also easy to use & well marked. I am very well pleased with this coffee maker and with it's long respected, brand name, I'm sure that I will continue to do so for many years to come. Hamilton Beach has got it right on this one!!

    My Red Coffee Maker

    This Hamilton Beach Coffee(12 Cup Ensemble) maker was an excellent buy at BestBuy when I purchased it. It has many great features to consider such as programmable clock/timer, nonstick hot plate, 2 hour automatic shutoff for safety, user friendly control panel and digital display. Beyond the fact that you can control the strength of the flavor of your coffee it comes in a beautiful red with stainless steel front panels. It also happens to be one of the most popular coffee makers out there right now and won't break your piggy bank to make a cup of delightful hot coffee at home when you want it. You also have a choice of paper filter for it or you can accessorize it for about another $9.00 to get a permanent one for your coffee maker. I've purchased more expensive coffee makers and they didn't have the features this one has with a price tag on it right now that really can't be beat.

    I have been looking for kitchen appliances in red for two years. When it was time for me look for a red coffemaker, I looked on the this website for pricing, the reviews, quality, and how well this coffemaker would match my kitchen decor. First, the price was affordable for a RED coffemaker and I received 2X bonus points, a plus. Two, the other reviews were accurate, if you read some of the reviews carefully, some people nitpicked over the smallest things about this coffemaker, but I digress. The coffeemaker keeps my coffee and tea HOT!!! Also, it shuts itself off after two hours which is great because I do forget to turn off my coffeemaker. Finally, after I bought it, everyone loved my coffeemaker!!! Who compliments someone about their coffemaker? Yes, that's how pretty this appliance is!!!

    We had a Krups premium coffee maker that only lasted a year. Before that we had a premium Cuisinart. Both lasted roughly a year before something went bad. We decided to go a little cheaper since I am constantly brewing coffee. This little coffee maker has worked reliably since we got it and even if it only lasts as long as the previous ones did I am more than happy to get it at the price we did. Stainless steel looks really nice in the kitchen too!

    I purchased this coffee maker mainly because I had Rewards Certificates to use before they expired and because of the excellent reviews it received. I got it as a back up to my working coffee maker in the event it quit working, and I am so glad I did. Not long after receiving it, my old one gave up, and my new was waiting to fill in. Next man up or in this case, next pot up. I'm not real happy in the morning when I don't get my coffee.

    I'm a French press kind of girl but we needed to get a coffeemaker for our household for lack of time in the morning and multiple people drinking coffee. This little coffeemaker has worked great, especially with the different brew and size options. I love the option to program it to autobrew in the morning. The warmer gets very hot, so if coffee is left in the pot it will taste sort of scalded if you're the last one to get coffee.

    replaced my Delonghi because the warming plate rotted away. This pot makes very hot coffee. Nice size. Makes a good cup of coffee, but you have to use a bit more grinds to achieve the same flavor. I love the smell of coffee brewing., Unfortunately, you can hardly smell this one. The clock is NOT back lit. Not a problem for me, but may be an issue if your kitchen/room is dimly lit.

    Good coffee, but issues with 1) coffee grounds in coffee when making 10+ cups; 2) the cross top where the coffee flows into the pot through is already cracked and this not something that gets cleaned or touched except to slide in and out of maker when retrieving coffee.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend
