    I like not having the carafe. Makes a good, strong "pot" of coffee. Easy enough to make 1 or 10 cups. Drips a bit when pouring the water but easy clean up.

    When the first mole came out from Costco, we bought one. Since then, we use it everyday. Very convenient, easy to clean and lots of features that others don't with a good price tag. This new one that we just bought has more added features and worth the money that we paid for.

    Great coffee maker for the price there was a deal in store. Was a gift to my parents because their coffee maker broke. At first they did not know how to use it because there was no pot, but once they got used to it they love it! Simple, easy and clean.

    It's just as advertised and easy to use. Very easy to clean. No more worrying about carafes breaking or spilling everywhere because the lip isn't made right. The only down side is they need to redesign the top so when you lift it after use, water doesn't drip down the back of the machine, other than that - great product.

    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 & haven't 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.

    Suits our needs perfectly! Read that they tend to leak after a while and so bought the maintenance plan with it. Glad I did because this is my second one. Traded up from the 10 to the 12 cupper. Which was a good trade. Love not having a glass carafe To worry about. Easy to keep clean and makes great coffee. So far so good we'll see how long this one lasts.

    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!!

    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.
