I have had my coffee pot now for about 4 years. The things is still awesome. It's the Hamilton Beach BrewMaster.

There is no glass cafree to break and you can just push you cup up to it and the coffee falls right in. And you don't have to wait for it to finish brewing. Because you don't have to take it out to fill your cup. From my experience with the pots that have the "cut off" thing on them. They don't work well. You still end up getting coffee all over the place because they leak.

So that's my review of my favorite appliance. I am thinking about getting the new one with the clock and automatic brew so I can make the coffee the night before and it will be ready when I wake up. But I think I will wait on that. This pot has served me well for 4 years and it has no problems so will continue to be a great asset for some time to come.

There's nothing wrong with me, This is how I'm supposed to be.

My wife had that one until it broke after 3 years. Then tried this Procter Silex one but it was junk and leaked badly after 6 months due to poor design.  -

She got this one for Christmas and is very pleased with it.

She uses them to brew Tea.

We have a separate coffee maker for coffee.

Last summer I retired a Proctor Silex (sorry, no photo) that had been in more-or-less continuous service for about 14 years. My parents killed off a Melita and two Bunns in the same period.

I'm not normally like this, but then I'm not normally normal.

I had that one also and had the same problem. I think mine lasted about 8 months before that seal went and started leaking all over the counter.
