Sunbeam 5735-33 Programmable 12 Cup Coffee Maker

Sunbeam's 5735-33 12-cup stainless steel coffee maker can definitely make your modern kitchen look more stylish. Made of high quality and durable stainless steel for its exterior, this coffee maker can withstand years of use.

And because it's from Sunbeam, this model uses an efficient brewing and water heating system.

Key features

- This machine can brew up to 12 cups of coffee in one batch.
- You can preprogram the machine to start brewing early in the morning because it has a programmable digital clock.
- You can personalize each cup through the adjustable aroma function.
- The two-hour automatic shut off feature ensures that you don't leave the machine on for hours.
- Buttons have blue back light.
- On and off switch has audible signal, making it easy for you to determine if the machine is off or on.
- For a richer flavor, simply use the cone filter when brewing your daily cup of coffee.


This stainless steel coffee maker is a stylish model for those who want a cleaner design for their modern kitchens. Because it can brew up to 12 cups of coffee per batch, this machine is perfect for groups or families with lots of coffee-drinking members. Another advantage is its programmable digital clock.

If you're always on the go every morning, you can simply preprogram the machine the night before so that it will start brewing and produce the perfect cup of coffee as you slip into the kitchen. Coffee lovers will also enjoy the machine's adjustable aroma feature and the cone filter. Using a cone filter for your coffee maker can result into a richer and better-tasting brew. Plus, if you keep on forgetting to turn off the machine after use, you'll appreciate the model's two-hour automatic shut off function.

Audible signals are also available for the on and off switch, making it easier for you to know if the coffee maker is on or not. Buttons are also provided with blue backlights, allowing you to clearly see the buttons any time of the day. And because the exterior is made of stainless steel, you will be able to enjoy your durable coffee maker for years.


Because the model has a stainless steel exterior, it isn't available in any other color except silver metal. This model is also not water filtration adaptable. This could have been a very useful feature since effective removal of chlorine from the water results into a better-tasting brew. If you wish to pour a cup of coffee in the middle of the brewing process, this is not possible because this Sunbeam model doesn't have the Pause 'n Serve function.

Full carafe burst into pieces NEW
by: Pat Hume

My Sunbeam carafe simply burst into pieces as I was pouring my first cup of the morning.

Thankfully, I was holding the pot over the sink, and nobody was scalded or injured.

Re: SunbeamĀ® 12 cup Coffee Maker Brew Basket Assembly NEW
by: Liz

Love this machine, but...the brew basket assembly has a spring-loaded stopper at its base, that allows you to remove the pot while the coffee is brewing, thereby preventing further flow until the pot is put back on the hotplate. A tiny translucent silicon washer is the only thing that allows the non-drip device to keep the spring taut. This washer comes out very easily during cleaning...you may not even notice it's missing until you start to make coffee. I have gone to the Sunbeam site to order a replacement basket...$3.99 plus taxes...not too bad...but with the added $10 shipping charge it becomes almost a $20 order! The coffee maker was purchased at Walmart last year, for $50 last year...what a ridiculous manufacturing flaw! Guess I'll be drinking instant coffee from now on! Has anyone else experienced this problem? Where can I get this part CHEAPLY, within my area of Quebec Canada?

Looks good but in the two years of use the basket valve needed fixing, and the brew cycle became intermittent and now the internal printed circuit board has died.

Parts no longer available and it is not even old!
by: Anonymous

Not very old, only a few years and already cannot get parts from sunbeam. What a joke. I will never buy a Sunbeam product again. Customer service is just a joke to them I guess.

Bad service
by: Anonymous

Got this as a gift, the Pause'n serve filter basket bottom spring broke and I can not find any replacement basket. I called the toll free service number in Canada but the center is in Florida. They give me retailers up to 5 hours away and nobody is aware of parts available. My model is 5735-33 and I do not recomend it to anyone.

I have this coffee machine but unfortunately my filter broke. The spring located at the bottom of the filter broke. Now when I remove the coffee pot the coffee continues to brew without pausing.

Is there anywhere that I can buy a new filter?

Thank you,
