Hamilton Beach Flexbrew Coffeemaker with Removable Reservoir - 49996C is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 78.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile Coffee Maker This Hamilton Beach FlexBrew Single serve coffee maker is loaded with great features for the price. The one I received is red in color and it also comes in black and both have silver trim which makes it very aesthetically pleasing to the eye. It will brew both regular ground coffee and k cups with just a simple switch of a small plastic insert in to the "Coffee Drawer". It has a removable water reservoir which holds 40 oz. of water and is easy to remove and clean, unlike some single serves whose reservoir is built in to the coffee maker itself. Also it is really nice to brew multiple cups without having to add water each time, and if it runs out of water the display shows "FIL H2O" which is nice because the reservoir is in the back of machine and not readily visible. It has a clock on the display and you can program the unit to start brewing at any time you desire. When finished programming to start brewing at a later time, a small blue light comes on to verify it is programmed. I might add that while programming the back light on the display is a bright blue and makes the numbers easy to see and after a short time when finished, it goes off, but the digits for the clock are still very readable. It brews 8oz., 10oz, or 14oz. cups of coffee and it has a "bold" setting for a stronger flavor if you wish. You can use a k cup for the 8 or 10 ounce but for the mug size 14oz, you need to use ground coffee to get enough flavor. There is a Drip Tray/Cup Rest where the 8 and 10 oz. cups would sit and for the 14oz., you simply remove that for the taller mug. Very impressed with this coffee maker and would definitely recommend to anyone who wants a fresh cup of coffee every time they want a cup of "java" and not have a partial pot of coffee left over, as with the multiple cup brewers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hamilton Beach FlexBrew Coffeemaker The Hamilton Beach FlexBrew Programmable Single Serve Coffeemaker will brew ground coffee and/or K-Cup coffee. That's why it's FLEXIBLE. Furthermore, even though they don't mention it, you can brew instant coffee, as well. The water reservoir holds 40 oz of water which is plenty of water without constantly pouring more water in. Some times I want to brew using 'K-Cup', some times I want 'ground coffee', and some times I want 'instant'. This machine is very versatile in that respect. It is programmable so you can set the clock and you can program it to brew at a specific time. Do keep in mind this is a 'Single Serve' coffeemaker. You can choose the option of 3 various coffee cup/oz settings, one of which will accommodate a travel mug or tall mug. There is also the option to set the strength brew of your coffee, light or strong. The cup rest serves also has a drip catcher and is removable in order to fit a travel mug/tall mug. No paper filters to buy. Two holders are included.....the single serve pack holder and the ground filter holder. Both work great. What I particularly like about this machine is that it saves money. We're not pouring coffee from a coffee carafe down the drain and we always have the option of using k-cups or ground....in addition to even placing instant in the filter holder. The only con, it is a little noisy but most coffee brewers are noisy. I like the red color because it decors well with my kitchen curtains. The red color is more of a muted red or what I would call more a brownish brick red. As for clean up, it's a breeze. Save money with this machine, no coffee filters to buy and no coffee going down the drain. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great alternative to Keurig! I received this product as part of the Wal-Mart Spark reviewer program. If you are looking for a less expensive alternative to the Keurig, this is it. It works with the pods and with your own coffee so you have the choice of either or both. The initial setup was really easy. It has a setting for how dark you want your coffee and it also has the 3 levels of cup size. The water reservoir is clear plastic so it is easy to see if you need to add water. It also tells you when to add water. The thing we like the most is after your coffee brews, it shuts off by itself right away. It takes a couple minutes to warm the water, but not long. This way when you leave it you know it is off. The only thing that I found was it seemed a little noisy, but so is the Keurig. Once you set the size of the cup, you don't have to reset it unless you are using a different size cup. It remembers the cup size and brew strength from cup to cup. The base comes off so you can use a bigger cup, and the coffee holder for the pods stores inside of the base, so it doesn't get lost. It really is a great little coffee maker and alternative to a more expensive model. I would recommend this to everyone that likes the Keurig. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible luck with this brand. Every time I run a cycle it always gives me H20 fill message, even though I have the reservoir filled completely to the fill line. If I press brew again it completes the cycle but with max cup size no matter which size I selected. This has resulted in hot coffee spilling all over my counter when choosing the smaller cup selection. I am terribly disappointed in this brand, as this is the third coffee maker from them that I've had problems with. I will never purchase any of their products again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Convenient. Unpacked this "FlexBrew" and put it together rather easily. Was not much to put together anyway. I selected ground basket for my coffee choice and ground up some beans. Filled the reservoir, selected strong (love this setting) and brewed up one of the most perfect cups of coffee that I have had yet. The built in filter makes dumping grounds easy and cleans up Very easily. I like to try different types of coffee, and this unit is the bomb for that. I do buy every once in a while the K cups. I try one and it did a great job on that as well. I would have liked a black or brushed chrome unit myself, but this is a nice Retro design. The unit is easy to program and the cup selection is very useful as well. Big capacity on the reservoir (40oz) makes brewing several different cups of coffee easy. Very fast brewing. Was very happy with this feature. Real bear in the morning. Over all I would give this unit 10 stars and will recommend to my friend who work in offices.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from EXCELLENT, Very Nice, used it on vacation We received this item a few days before going on vacation so we took it with us. We own a Keurig so we expected similar or better quality. IT IS! We love the options of using K-cups, loose coffee, disc packs, etc. We had some disc packs that we could not use in our Keurig however they work great in this coffee maker. The two baskets allow for ease of use by all with a huge range of coffee or tea choices. Easy to use, simple to setup. We especially liked the programming feature so our coffee is ready when we get up. Our favorite option was the ability to select light or dark in addition to 3 cup size choices. We have been thrilled with this coffee maker. Upon returning home it went on our coffee service counter with the Keurig and the Bun. We are coffee drinkers and our family tend to use our Keurig for their hot tea and flavored coffees - all of our coffee pots are used in a week. This coffee pot is equal to if not better than the Keurig (we have the top of the line Keurig). This is a definite recommend. We will be purchasing these for gifts.
