Strengths: Very convenient when entertaining
Weakness: must make at least 4 cups of coffee at a time
I had previously purchased the standard version and this is the upgraded version. I have no problems with the previous version and it makes great coffee. Sleeker design than previous version

Save Your Money
Strengths: Easily programmable
Weakness: Reservoir leaks coffee all over counter... No warranty backup from Hamilton Beach
We thought we had bought the ideal coffee maker. What a surprise we got when after 4 months, the coffee reservoir began to leak. Coffee all over the counter with every batch of coffee we made. I did a search on the web and found more complaints of a similar nature with Hamilton Beach only offering the opportunity to purchase a new reservoir, even for systems that are still under warranty. Also, freshly brewed coffee was not brewing hot as it had when it was new. For the money paid, it wasn't worth keeping, so we moved on to the Cuisinart DCC-2000. Do yourselves a favor and stay clear of the Brewstation Deluxe. Buy something better.

Can\\\\\\\'t they make one that doesn\\\\\\\'t LEAK!
Strengths: Loved the convenience right up until this one also started to leak.
Weakness: Leaks right at the seam. Drips all over the counter and onto the floor.
Since this coffee maker cost 7 times the cheap ones with the breakable pot, I\\\\\\\'d expect it to last at least 7 times as long. Will not be buying another one as this is the third Brewstation and all of them eventually began leaking.

hamilton beach brewstation 47454 12 cup coffee maker
Strengths: i think it's a good item when it works properly
Weakness: I had one before this one given as a gift, and it did start leaking within the first year. So I notified them and sent it back , and they sent another deluxe one.
Now, after I have had this one not leaking for about 1 1/2 years, this started a volcano type eruption with the grounds all backing up into the drip holes, and i cleaned it out with vinegar, and nothing helps.. any body know how to contact them, as I am sure they can help me with this

Nice Idea but it leaks!!
Strengths: Makes a good cup of coffee, The dispenser is a great feature
Weakness: Leaks from the bottom of the unit and into water tank
We recieved this as a gift for Christmas 2006. After about 6 months I noticed a small amount of coffee in the water tank when I was about to make coffee. This continues to happen. It began to leak out of the bottom of the coffeemaker as well. We now have to put a kitchen towel under it to absorb the coffee, otherwise it will leak all over the counter.

This thing leaks
Weakness: Leaks enough to cause a mess
This thing leaks and messes up your filter as well. It drips all over counter. I would not recommend. why have they not fixed this yet at the company

Strengths: Color choices,neat design, digital, no more carafes to break
Weakness: LEAKS,LEAKS,LEAKS. I tried two of these as the first one was black and lasted less than a year, came out with red to match my kitchen so decided to try again, less than one year and same problem.
I would NOT recommend this to anyone. I am in the market for a different brand. Hamilton Beach has been around since I was a child and thought I was buying quality for my husbands gifts but no longer.

hamilton beach 47454 coffee maker
We have had this coffee maker for two years, it worked fine for about a year, then it leaked all over our counter, my wife called and they sent us a part to repair it, which worked for about a year, but we were told if this happens again we were on our own, this morning it leaked all over our counter again, the only way I will buy another one will be if they sell it to me for $19.99, I will never buy another hamilton beach product again.

GOOD COFFEE BUT LEAKS AFTER 6 MONTHS
Strengths: LOTS OF FEATURES
Weakness: IT WILL LEAK AFTER 6 MONTHS
IT MAKES GOOD COFFEE BUT THE CARAFE TANK WILL LEAK BADLY. HAD HAMILTON BEACH REPLACE THE POT AFTER TRYING TO REPAIR WITH NEW GASKET AND BREAKING THE TAP. LESS THAN 6 MONTHS LATER. IT LEAKS AGAIN. SUCH A BIG MESS TO CLEAN.GONNA TOSS IT IN THE TRASH. I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS KIND OF COFFEE MAKER.
