Practical Brewing, Flexible Choices
Philippines from Baltimore, MD – Verified Buyer
Overall, I am happy with this purchase. PROS: Space saver; gives the option of traditional carafe brewing, or single serve brewing with either K-cups, pods or single serve ground coffee of your choice with their special basket. CONS: Be careful when using the single serve brewing with K-cups - make sure you PRESS DOWN twice (when you insert the K-CUP and then after you slide it in) to make sure that it will pierce the cup properly, or else you will just get hot water. Also, be aware to keep the carafe in place, as the hot plate also heats up even if you just set it to single serve.

The 2 Way FlexBrew is a nice coffee maker. The warmer concept is waaaaay out of date. If you want to make this the perfect brewer, PLEASE, PLEASE make it with a insulated carafe and NO warmer. We set our coffee to brew at 4:00 a.m., and if we happen to sleep in, we are greeted by luke warm coffee. Our old Cuisinart had the insulated carafe and it kept coffee warm for hours. Please pass this along to Hamilton Beach.
Flex brew is timesaver!

I purchased the HB Flexbrew for my husband for Christmas. He drinks coffee at home only on the weekend before he goes trail biking, and with our old standard 12 cup coffee maker he'd make a full pot, but just drink a couple of cups. I thought this would help to stop him from wasting coffee while still being able to enjoy a couple of cups on weekend mornings. It's done the trick just great! He love the versatility, and I love not throwing away pots full of coffee. I love it too! I just wish my local store carried a better variety of the K-cups!!
2 Way FlexBrew® Coffee Maker
James from Kingsport, TN – Verified Buyer
Outstanding coffee pot. I brew my pot of coffee and she brews her two cups. Unfortunately there is one problem. The list for the grounds has already warped. I'm guessing "Made in China" has lot to do with that. Suggestion for Hamilton Beachwould be to have two separate systems so brewing for both options is possible. These two reasons are house come I'm giving only for stars. Otherwise it does a good job. Outstanding is for GR8 concept but was misunderstood by both of us. We were misled about the two functions. We thought they were separate entities.

My boyfriend and I LOVE this product. I was skeptical if it would be as good as I hoped based on the reviews, but I would definitely recommend this product. My boyfriend likes to brew his own coffee in large batches and I like to make a cup on the fly and use the individual cup setting. You can also brew coffee and tea in the cup setting as well! Multiple uses. Easy to use. (optional) Example: Not enough color options
Love Having Options
Dana from Murrieta, CA – Verified Buyer
I've been using this coffee maker for about a month & I do love the fact that I have so many options to choose from. We normally just make the coffee in the carafe, because my husband & I both drink multiple cups in the morning. I've had no problems with the coffee not being hot enough, like some others have reviewed. The only issue I've had is that even on bold the coffee isn't really strong like I like it, but I'm sure that will change the more we use it.
JR from Poway, CA – Verified Buyer
I am loving this coffee maker with the 3 optional ways to brew which lends to convenience and prevents waste! I have recommended to many who are interested in a K-cup option but want to retain the flexibility of using a "pot". And the single-mug brew is perfect for one to go in the morning. Hamilton Beach rocked this one!
Pleased as Punch!
Carolyn from Sumrall, MS – Verified Buyer
Received my coffee maker a few days ago & started using it right away. Am so excited that it is multi-functional. It makes a full pot or just a cup in a few minutes. Only drawback is that the pot is little difficult to pull out from under the maker but I figured out from looking at illustrations in guidebook that maybe it should be set in & pulled out from the left.
Multi purpose coffee maker
Brenda from Jordan, MN – Verified Buyer
I love my new 2 Way Flex Brew. I am old fashioned I that I like drinking coffees that is brewed from a drip coffee maker however when I have guests I like to offer the option of the Kuerig coffee choices. The Flex Brew does both types of coffee equally well. I am very satisfied. Pros: Great coffee, just plug it in! Versatile. Reasonably priced. Cons: Nothing I it is great.
Great multi-function coffee maker
Deborah from Fairfax Station, VA – Verified Buyer
Bought this for my family & loved it so much I Bought one for my parents and another for my sister as gifts. We all love the versatility of being able to have a pot of coffee or just a cup with any brand of k-cups. It also comes with a mini filter to make a single cup with your own ground coffee! So far it's been an excellent choice for all of us!
