I'm not particular about brands of coffeemakers. I've used several different brands. We just drink a lot of coffee. I have had the Hamilton Beach #47665 for, at most, 6 months.

The water container is awkward to handle and the scale is useless in determining the level of coffee/water in the water container. But those drawbacks were worth the ease of conveniently drawing a cup of good tasting coffee. The reason I threw this coffeemaker into the trash was that it started to leak. As the leaking become worse, I found that the screws around the hotplate were no tight. I tightened them, but it didn't help. The last time I used this item, half of my pot of coffee was on the kitchen counter, in the drawers beneath the counter and on the floor. I happened to have the box the product came in. It said,
MADE IN CHINA. Enough said.
