We were looking for a coffee maker that produced 12 cups of coffee with each cycle, and that kept the coffee hot. This product met all our criteria. It is easy to use and clean after each use. We also like the fact that as it brews the steam is not vented straight up damaging cabinets above our storage area.

Overstock.com was great and easy to use. I agressively try to purchase items only made in America. When I did a search for coffee makers "made in USA" this item came up. When I received it, "Made in China" was on the box and the unit. I returned it and Overstock was quick in trying to set things right. They did a great job and I would recommend overstock.com to a friend. I was dissappointed in the product only because it wasn't made in the US as I saw on the site. Otherwise, the product was fine.

The coffee maker works very well. The coffee tastes great, and it is easy to use. The only drawback is that a tall travel cup wll not fit under the dispenser.

This is a great coffee maker - you can make as little or as much as you need to without spending a LOT of money on "K-Cup" type machines. The slim design takes up so much less space than my last coffee maker and the function of keeping the coffee hot while you are ready to "press" for coffee is much better than a "hot plate" the keeps coffee warm. Wish I found this sooner.
The Hamilton Beach 48463R Brewstation Summit 12-Cup Programmable Coffeemaker delivered very tasteful and hot coffee. Although the first few cups had a bit of a plastic taste to them, once I ran a few more cycles though it that taste disappeared. So overall, the coffee maker looked nice and brewed a very nice cup of coffee.
We have used HB brew station(s) for five years. We purchased about the same time. One of them just recently gave out. We had a back up, and, used it. I had purchased some kona coffee beans for morning coffee. I noticed a bitter taste. Also, noticed quite a bit of white scale on the coffee maker. It wasn't broken, but, quite possibly could be soon. I went to another site, but, there seemed to be a problem with them. They would not sell me one, as, the product was under review. It was a new design, so who knows. I found this one, parts of the old design, parts new. The reviews were positive. This brew station, was a bit more expensive than the others. No matter. I purchased the protection plan. My husband seems delighted with the new brew station. I am so-so. The coffee isn't as hot as I would like. The design is sound, no leaking, and it does brew 12 cups. If my husband is happy, then, I will be, too.
This is the third coffee maker of this type that I have had and I love it. After my last one died, I tried going back to the traditional drip coffee maker but I ended up buying another one of these. It gets very heavy usage and works beautifully. Coffee has good flavor and is nice and hot.
Bought this for my mother who is picky about what kind of coffee maker she uses. She is very happy with her gift. It also fits nicely on her counter, under the top cabinets and it looks great. It shipped quickly. I actually sent it as a gift and as a surprise for her. Unfortunately, it said "coffeemaker" on the outside of the box. It was a surprise killer. So if you want to send it as a gift just know this happens. The product and Overstock are both excellent.
Best features are the speed with which the coffee makes brews 12 cups of coffee, up to fours hours keeping coffee warm, and the fact that you can get a cup of coffee before all 12 cups finish brewing without spilling coffee on any warming plate as with traditional coffee makers using a glass coffee pot. It also looks very nice on a kitchen counter!
Previously having used a similar coffee maker, though one which poured into a glass carafe, I decided to try the one cup dispenser style of this one. It is handy not to have to deal with left over coffee in the carafe,; rather leave it in the machine until it can be dispensed as cafe latte, with some milk. The three step process of lifting out the filter holder, then the container, then filling the container to dump into the yet another container is somewhat vexing. But, the machine is reliable and attractive. Therefore, I would recommend it to others.
