Rated 5 out of 5 by antlers Not many options out there
We were originally given the HB 3 way coffee maker as a Christmas present. That thing was a piece of junk the Kcup failed all the time, We exchanged that for this 2 way machine. Much better decision. This works as described. Brews a single or full pot.
My only negative comment is why are all the water fill openings in the top back of the machines when the majority of coffee makers sit on counters under cabinets??????-makes for difficult filling unit with water, We bought a small "granite" cutting board and mounted sliders under it so we can slide the unit forward. Works perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LM2LHL Good coffee pot
Got this as a gift for my Dad. Really like the fact that it makes a single serve using regular coffee, not a k-cup. It did not come with the travel mug which was supposed to come with it in the description online. That is why I only gave it a good for "Meets Expectations" Coffee was good and hot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Besmo555 This product meets expectations.
When ordering I wanted the convenience of a full pot along with single cup serve features. This has all of that. One special thing is the coffee is very very hot wind brewed in the pot which I love. The singleserve is not as convenient as the Kuerig style however I like my blend of coffee so it works well for me. I have noticed there is a new Hamelton Beach out with the Kuerig style single serve along with the full pot on the other side. I believe you would be happy with that style also. I would highly recommend this Hamilton Beach style coffee maker.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Deltaman66 Just love this coffee maker
I don't have a lot of counter space for a full size coffee maker and only drank 1 cup of instant (yuk) in the mornings. I read all the reviews before I asked my daughters to get me this as a gift. I was concerned about the "not hot enough" reviews, but requested it anyway. I followed instructions to the "T" even pre heating my cup. Well, it was hot enough it burnt my mouth. Today, Cold water in, scaulding hot coffee out. This is great for a single/retired person with little counter space. Now I can make several cups a day, at anytime with very little clean up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PurplePrincess Excellent coffee maker
I purchased this for my husband. He loves to make single mugs of coffee for the ride to work. If we have guests over, it makes an entire pot! We believe it works better than our previous Keurig single coffee cup maker! This one works better for filtering loose coffee grounds! Some reviews stated there was a plastic taste, however, we cleaned it and prepped it according to the instructions which arrived with the coffee maker, and all worked well for us. No problems whatsoever. No plastic taste. Excellent product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by penniesfrmheaven7 just what i wanted
This coffee pot was just what i was looking for. i have had many coffee pots in the past including a Keurig which was the last one i used. The scoop is the best i can not only used any bag coffee (which is much cheeper than buying pods)
but make a whole pot for company . You can also make the single cup as weak or strong as you like an the coffee is nice an hot. It also saves space on my counter. I feel they shoud advertise this product more cause it was a great find for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mkandkdsmom My coffee is hot and ready every morning
This coffee maker replaced my Hamilton Beach Stay or Go that I had for years. It still worked, but it was time for an upgrade. This coffee maker is fabulous. No spills at all. No drips either. I use the single serving side every morning without issue. My old one used a bigger to-go mug with a handle, but I have gotten used to the mug that came with the set without the handle. No complaints. I would definitely recommend this item.
