Hamilton Beach 49464
by Alayna Feiling
I bought this coffee maker almost two years ago at Kohl's. I wanted something physically attractive yet affordable and this seemed to be the one. It matched all of my other appliances, small and large, and though it wasn’t the fanciest one on the shelf, it seemed perfect for me. I must admit, I didn't use it more than a couple times the first few months.
But I started using it every day when winter time came and I've had almost no problems. There have been a few incidents of the coffee not making it to the pot because the glass pot itself wasn't inserted correctly.
You have to be careful and make sure the pot is perfectly in position. I like to lean over and look under the resevoir to make sure the little flap is down.
This doesn’t strike me as a flaw however because it means I can pour a cup mid-brew without any coffee being wasted or spilling where I don’t want it. It's been very reliable and I would definitely recommend it to a friend, family member or anyone who asks. It's the first coffee maker I have ever owned so unfortunately I can’t compare to any other as an owner, but I’ve used and seen others and if it’s something you plan on using every day, this is a great alternative to some of the more expensive coffee makers. Sometime down the road, as technology develops more and more, I’m sure I’ll still be satisfied with this Hamilton beach model.
It's simple and easy to use and looks fantastic in my kitchen. I’m a very happy customer.
