About - Hamilton Beach Stay or Go 45237R

The Hamilton Beach Stay or Go 45237R is part of the coffeemaker test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, drip coffeemaker models like the Stay or Go 45237R are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.


Brew performance:
The ability to reach 195° to 205° F for five or six minutes, the industry standard for optimal brewing.

Convenience:
Reflects ease of filling the reservoir, placing the filter, gauging the amount of coffee remaining, and cleaning up. It also reflects how clear we judged the controls.

Carafe handling:
Covers handle comfort, tendency to drip while pouring, balance of a full carafe, and how easy it was to empty the last liquid. Models with no score here brew into single-serve cups or are brew-and-dispense models. The latter hold the coffee in a tank; you fill your cup by pressing it against the dispenser lever.

Comment:
I saw reports that this coffee maker will drip. I haven't found that with either the small container or the larger pot. Maybe they've fixed it? I like all the features on this brewer. Makes great iced coffee too. I mainly use it for 1 or 2 cups in the morning. But I don't use the small container for drinking, there's better stuff out there to keep it hot. At home I drink it immediately as it's not like the big pot that seals up better. Using a hot mug you retain the heat and get the aroma. I started using paper filters as they're so abundant, cheap and there's absolutely no grounds. No more broken carafes to replace. That's was becoming a habit. Too jittery?

Comment:
Had an older model stay or go for10years and loved it. replaced it with the new version... Everything works great other than you can't pour from the caraft without spilling/dripping everywhere. Which means you have to pour over the sink, and have a cloth ready if you use the pot to fill it with water. Ok if you never serve guests and like puddles on your counter and floor.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Everything about it is great, except that it drips when you pour. I've finally had enough of the cleaning up and am shopping for a new coffee maker.
