I love red small kitchen appliances and cookware! When I saw this beautiful red Hamilton Beach coffeemaker, I just had to buy it, even though I had a perfectly good coffeemaker at home. I'm glad I bought it, and not just because the color suits me! This is a 12 cup coffeemaker that is easy to program, easy to clean, and maybe most importantly - it DOESN'T DRIP when you pour a cup of coffee, or when you pour water into the back of the coffeemaker in preparation to brew coffee. That in itself is worth its weight in gold to me! Every other coffeemaker I have owned before this one DRIPPED! It's so nice to pour a cup of coffee without having to wipe up a puddle! And about that coffee - it brews very fast - about 8 minutes - and stays HOT - that's also a plus. This coffeemaker has an automatic shutoff after two hours, which is handy if you are like me and sometimes forget to turn it off. It isn't noisy, and the stainless steel faceplate compliments my kitchen, too.
The cheery red of this coffeemaker also matchesHamilton Beach's blender, can opener and toaster, which I also own and plan to review.
