It’s a great looking machine and I don’t mind it being on my counter.I will not be purchasing another and Amazon had amazing customer service and is accepting my refund.After a month, the coffee still has a plastic taste.I am afraid to return it cause the price of them almost doubled in the last week and I don’t want to buy it back for double the price I paid.Second use the sides of the glass where nothing is touching started cracking.As for it “spilling water everywhere” complaints….I purchased on December 21, 2017 and this morning it made it’s last pot.Most mornings the carafe and when I feel like a cup later in the afternoon, the single serve worked out great.We emailed Hamilton Beach and were told we needed to “brew” a pot of vinegar through the coffee making cycle.Too late to return it and I am working with Hamilton Beach on getting it fixed….It even came with a few paper filters for the carafe side so you don’t have to worry about having them on hand to start out.LOVE this coffee pot.Like that I can use my regular coffee on the single brew side- very intuitive to work- still have not really needed to use the manual but will need to for the cleaning that is due.But there are a couple of big downsides to this pot too.I inspected fully to see where it was coming from and when water was poured in the tank it just came from all over the place on the bottom.but… my girl loves coffee! I didn’t have a pot but I felt bad that she couldn’t have her morning coffee when she stays at my place.It makes a great cup of coffee too.After about 6 weeks the nonstick coating on the hot plate was completely worn off.This did not disappoint.Unfortunately the Single Serve side doesn’t work properly, it doesn’t heat the water enough to make the coffee "cry" so yo just get dirty water.
If they prove to me they fix this, I will update to 5.They say in their FAQ that it should brew at 175 to 185.Do yourself a favor and buy a different brand.The left size took a little finesse.The option to brew a single cup is awesome.It works, has a timer, and auto shut-off in two hours.I have never been interested in a Keurig because I think Kpods are expensive and wasteful with all the plastic.The Ninja’s don’t last with hard water and this had so many reviews BUT I think ours is messed up and I contacted the company 2x and got “it’s supposed to do that” as a response.No great shakes there, but it does have some clever features, especially the one-cup brewer on the side.It makes a very nice cup of coffee, and I love the Bold option and the programming function.The carafe has sideguards at the spout so pouring the coffee from the pot doesn’t go wide or dribble.Well, this one only lasted 1..The first thing that impressed me was a nice piping hot cuppa coffee.I thought I wanted a single serve option, but I usually make 6-8 cups so it was pointless for me to do single serve and I didn’t use it once.It was hard when having guests to make individual cups for more than 2 people.My parents have the same model, as well as my sister-in-law, and my brother.This machine does NOT fit most thermoses as a heads up.I bought one of these over a year ago for my office, it gets used at least 8 times a week, mostly the single cup, but sometimes the full pot.This filter is quick and very easy to fill and clean.
This coffee maker is not much faster… 15-20 min for a full 12 cup carafe.I usually use the single serve side .Two were for gifts for family members and I personally kept one.I love that you can do a full pot and I double brew the single side for my husband for his work day and doesn’t need pods!! The original that I had actually came with a single side thermos but that was YEARS ago.I had the keurig machine with is good for convenience but makes a weak cup of coffee and eat money in pods.The single side is hot as well.Photo shows travel mug and 12 cup pot.This unit you add water when you are making the coffee and it does not store the water making mold less likely .This Hamilton Beach rocks! I am a coffee snob and I tell you this HB 2-way is the ticket.After opening box I was sad to see that there isn’t a travel away mug for the additional brewing center as the product picture showed before purchase.Like how all her friends had “those fancy machines where you get to make one cup at a time with those cups”, that they were better for older folks who might just want one or two cups instead of a whole pot of 12, but she does NOT like wasting the plastic that ends up being tossed with each and every one of those K-cups made….It makes good coffee, the components fit together tightly, and it doesn’t leak or make a mess, what more do you want? Probably the best 2-in-1 coffee maker I’ve ever used; at this price point, it’s unbeatable.Currently he has a single brew and I have a full size brewer with a 10 cup carafe.The water does not get hot enough and you end up with very weak coffee.When the coffeemaker arrived, I noticed that the basket for the carafe side of the unit was missing.I love how easy it is to use and to program.Coffee flex-brew machine at a friend’s house and really wanted one of his own as he likes to have a cup of coffee in the evening but doesn’t want to brew a whole pot for just one cup.The brewing time for the single cup is a bit of a wait, but not much longer than a standard Keurig.After several attempts at cleaning it, I noticed the switch from “single cup” to “carafe” wouldn’t move at all.So, if I forget to turn it back on, I will have cold coffee when I go refill my cup at some point.
