I love the way you fill the water on this it is so easy. No dumping and pouring water all over the counters. Keeps coffee warm up to 4 hours! My only complaint is that the used grounds stay very wet. Must be a slight drainage problem. Overall a good coffee pot and I love it.
We had this coffeemaker for about 2 months. It started leaking and the coffee ALWAYS had to be reheated in the micro. Also the well under the basket was always filling up with water on one side, and the stainless ."hot plate" under the filter basket,needed constant cleaning with a Mr. Clean sponge to remove the coffee residue that would build up on it. Finally I called Hamilton Beach, and they gave me credit to buy another coffeepot, so I bought the Flex Brew. It has a coffeepot that holds twelve cups and also the ability to brew a single cup on the other, either using a small version of a coffee filter or a k-cup single serve. I couldn't be happier. the coffee from the Flex Brew is always nice and hot, and it's great having two options to choose from. The Flex Brew cost me a little more but for an appliance that you use everyday it's fantastic.
Good coffee maker, a little noisy when keeping coffee warm but overall a great coffeemaker
