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.

drips all over the place

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.

Comment:
I've really enjoyed this coffee maker. It's easy to use, easy to program, and keeps my coffee hot for hours in the morning and it's still warm at 5pm.<br /><br />The only challenge, and it's minor, has been that dribbles when it pours. I now pour my coffee over the sink. Problem solved.<br /><br />I purchased the gold-tone permanent filter separately. It works fine, but can be a pain to clean due to its fine mesh.<br /><br />Overall a very good coffee maker.
