This Hamilton Beach Single Serve is a great replacement, I’ve gotten used to the paper filters for the Braun and even though it has it’s own reusable, I prefer my coffee not to have that oil, film across the top and in the bottom of the cup, the paper filters get rid of that completely.However it has problems.Before brewing the 1st time I filled it with white vinegar and ran it through a cycle, then 2 cycles of plain water to remove any residual plastic taste.Product images show two different machines therefore the product ratings don’t accurately represent the product currently listed.When I first got it, I used it constantly and LOVED it – no paper filters needed, so easy to use, perfect in a household where just one person drinks coffee, so affordable – life was good..Everytime I make a cup of coffee it has a hint of smell and taste of plastic.After a couple months of using it now struggles to get to 170 degrees.I’m giving this four out of five stars.” Two days later the coffee maker stoped working.The only thing that would make it better would be paper filters.I have used single cup coffee makers that cost over $250.After going through two clean cycles and making a freshly brewed cup i noticed the coffee line was no where near the water line that i poured in.No worries, as everything was thoroughly cleaned before first use.It started becoming erratic in all the ways the k-cup machines do, but the last straw was when it would only make room temperature coffee and no amout of cleaning and fiddling would fix it.This is probably truthfully our favorite coffee maker – we have 1 our shop, 1 in our extra kitchen and 1 in the pool house.I checked some “best single serve coffee maker” lists on Google and, at $35, the Hamilton Beach Single Serve Coffee Maker was the best price out of all those on the market .I put in 8 oz of water and got 3 oz of coffee on the bold setting.For starters it makes a mediocre cup of coffee at best.Well 2 weeks into making coffee in this machine and it is horrible!! This is not a good coffee maker for someone who drinks more than 2 cups of day of coffee.
This one?? This is the one.Seldom do I have people over and am in need of making more than one cup.The reviewer noticed an unusually strong plastic odor when opening the box.This turned out to be great! Just scoop in 2 or 3 spoonfuls of coffee, pour in some water, push the button, and boom – coffee! It’s actually faster than my Keurig, hotter, and tastes better too! The flip-around-able stand allowing a taller to-go mug is handy; I’ve used that a couple times.But after reading many reviews online, I decided to try this Hamilton Beach.If all you want is a simple cup of brewed coffee using grounds, this is definitely the coffee maker for you.I’ve had 2 Keurig which were 4x the price and both died with moderate use after 2 to 3 years.The lid on the replacement unit is not properly aligned & requires minor adjustment to close it.One thing I wanted to add — if you get the Mellita #1 size paper filter, and put them below the cup holding the grounds, you don’t get any small particles in your brew.First the positive: my coffee tasted pretty good.I’ve never used a Keurig or anything else besides a traditional Drip Brew Coffee pot in the past.* The invertible metal stand for the cup is nice, but not really necessary.It’s pretty fast.(We use it for family gatherings, etc.The old one still works great after several years.Did NOT want to go to K cups.This item is made well and looks good.Then I saw an opportunity to reduce the space the coffeemaker was taking on our tiny countertop and decided to look into the Mini Kuerigs.I’m not a coffee maker snob.Our favorite think about this one is that it is tall enough to accommodate large to-go coffee cups.
I liked the price and really like the product itself, all stainless, easy to clean, and incredibly easy to use.I had a couple of those “K cup” machines over the course of the past 10 years.Purchased one several years ago and then used it into a coma.You don’t need paper filters, which is less wasteful ; you don’t need to wash the carafe, since it brews directly into my travel mug! A few days ago i had a brewing disaster – either i poured in too much water, or overfilled the coffee basket, but the machine hissed, spit and overflowed all over the counter.Loved it! (I use very dark coffee and "bold" setting – it did not taste weak to me.It’s a tidy size and looks attractive on the counter.I’m able to buy my specialty Seattle’s best free trade organic coffee and use my own and I can make my own iced coffee… you name it and I don’t have to pay for Starbucks anymore or use that horrible instant coffee they put in those pods! After my last coffee maker broke, I began looking at alternatives to the traditional drip coffee maker with a glass carafe.This is extremely disappointing.The flavor is close enough to coffee brewed in traditional way.I went as far to use espresso and it still came out tasting like flavored water.I wanted to like this machine but alas it’s not for me.Then I tried Starbuck’s Pike Place blend, and that didn’t work either.Pros:– No tank – I have had a lot of bad experiences with mold in the tanks of the big expensive name brand single cup makers.I followed all instructions in the manual and used two types of ground coffee.I drink one cup of coffee in the morning, but I want it to be a good cup.It also solves the problem of needing to buy filters like you do for drip coffee makers.It’s got a great stainless steel look and it’s super easy to use.I will even skip going to Wawa !I have made about 100 cups of coffee and every cup tastes the exact same as the very first cup.This coffee maker is a great replacement for a K-cup brewer for anybody switching over to ground coffee.
