Have Your Coffee Waiting for You
This is a wonderful coffee maker! It's the easiest to set the time, and to program the time you want it to start brewing. The little green light will let you know when the auto-program is on. All you need to do is add the right amount of water, a filter, and your favorite coffee.
This unit uses #4 cone filters. Some might see this as a drawback. I see it as a plus. I've tried coffeemakers that use basket filters(which cost less than cone). Sometimes, the sides of the basket filter would tip over during brewing. This usually resulted in the grounds and water overflowing onto the coffee pot and the hot-plate. I don't have this happen with cone filters. I like the auto-pause feature. This allows you to pour a cup of coffee before the brewing cycle is finished.
This pot will automatically shut off in two hours, which is another feature I really like.
If you are not going to use all the coffee you brew within 30 minutes or so, it's best to pour the finished coffee into a thermal pot. I also recommend you let the pot cool before washing, and wash it using a sponge or cloth-nothing that could score the insides and cause it to crack later.lorna444birds
Very sleek looking coffee maker
This Hamilton Beach programmable coffee pot has all the same features as coffee makers 2 or 3 times the price. The buttons are easy to head and to be able to set the coffee pot to be ready for you when you waken is a huge plus. The reservoir is very accessible with one finger so you can be holding the pot of water in the other hand. There is a swing arm you slide to the side to place the coffee in the basket. My only comment is this machine does not come with a sample package of #4 filter papers so you will have to go buy some of them before you can use it. It would be very helpful if a few were enclosed in the box for the consumer. I happen to have a bunch of them on hand so I was able to use it right away. It makes a very good up of coffee no matter what kind of coffee you use. The carafe is made of glass so you have to be careful not to bump it but it does keep the coffee hot for a long time and it doesn't taste burnt as it sometimes does in a metal carafe. I highly recommend this Hamilton Beach coffee put maker to all coffee drinkersmisscakes
Great coffee maker
We really like the way the coffee comes out of our Hamilton Beach 12 cup programmable coffee maker. We had to adjust the amount of coffee grounds that we added. Both the package of the coffee and the pot directions said to put in quite a lot but we adjusted that to our taste and it is perfect. We bought the Community Coffee-medium roast Breakfast Blend at Walmart and found it to be delicious. The directions are very easy to understand. We programmed the machine to turn on at a certain time in the morning so that the coffee is ready when we are. We only make a small amount of coffee each day since there is just 2 of us, but it does a wonderful job of that. I fill it to the 4 cup mark and it makes 2 nice sized mugs. I bought the cone shaped coffee filters that they recommended.
The only improvement that I can see for this coffee maker is getting the water for the coffee to come out a little hotter as we need to put our mug in the microwave for a few seconds , probably due to the amount of creamer that we put in. If you unplug the machine at some time you do need to reset the time and the timer again.goswimmin
