Rated 5 out of 5 by Alical Excellent product for the price
I purchased this coffee maker because I wanted my husband and myself to be able to make an individual cup of coffee or tea or hot chocolate instead of a whole carafe full at times. After reading a lot of reviews about different brands of coffee makers I decided to go with the Hamilton Beach. The price was much lower and the product gets good reviews. The coffee is very good from this machine and is piping hot which is how we like it. The only problem we have had is with the Swiss Miss chocolate pods. When trying to use them we put the pod in and the top doesn't puncture, just the bottom. That being the case all you get is a cup of lightly colored hot water. You have to take the pod out afterward and dump the chocolate mixture in the cup and stir with a spoon. It does the coffee pods just the way it's supposed to and makes a good cup of coffee with the pods. We will try to find another brand of pods for the hot chocolate and see if it's just the Swiss Miss pods that gives us a problem. Overall the Hamilton Beach is a great product for the money and we are happy with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JJO1 Best maker in years
I purchased Cuisinart, didn't last but 1 year, then a DeLonghi, very poor design and absolutely NO customer service at all, would not return two inquiries. Returned for refund. Purchased the Hamilton Beach Flex Brew and this is it. Pours great, doesn't dip all over counter, easy to use works GREAT! The K-cup brews a little slow, but that's fine. Other reviews talk about a plastic taste, but ours does not. I think it was the model previous to this one. I recommend this product. Very satisfied.

Rated 4 out of 5 by likecoffee Great for the money spent.
I bought this coffee pot because my husband likes to drink just 1 cup of coffee once in a while after the pot is gone. I have found that it is very easy to make just a cup and the coffee pot makes great coffee either way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Testarosa So awesome that I ordered 2!
This product is so worth every penny compared to the "other" brand at 2 - 3 times the cost. I bought one for my oldest daughter as a Christmas present and she and her husband love it! When my youngest daughter saw it, she wanted one as well - she and her husband love theirs just as much!

Rated 2 out of 5 by KellyM Not happy with product
I wanted a coffee pot that would not take up a lot of room on counter, which this was perfect, but by the 3rd time using the single serve side it would not work. I cleaned it and tried again, still nothing. I went through all the set up 3 more times, and I cannot get the water to fill the single side. Trying to return, don't know if I will get another one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KRH64 Love it
I bought this for my husband for his birthday. He loves it!! He had been wanting one for a while so when I saw this at JCPenney I had to get it. He loves the fact that he can make a pot for us or just a cup when he wants it. The coffee is HOT when it is made not warm like most coffee makers. This was a great gift for him at a great price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Happyshoper Perfect combination!
My husband got this for me as a gift. I have not been in favor of a single serve coffee maker because sometimes you just need a whole pot. This coffee maker is the best of both worlds. I can brew a whole pot when we have company and also single serve for myself in the mornings. A huge plus is it is programmable on either setting, it also uses single serve cups (like kurig cups) but also comes with a single serve refillable basket and does 6 to 12oz single serve. Love it!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by lori great product just 1 bad point for me
Just bought this coffee maker so far I love it. Love how the kids can do Kcups while I like my own coffee and can make a pot.
