Customer Reviews

(Back to Top)

Most of the customers that have bought this unit seem to be satisfied with it.  68% of the Amazon reviews gave it a 5 star review.  Customers said that the brushed stainless exterior is easy to clean and they are very happy with the no drip spout.  Another plus is that it doesn’t take long to make a pot of brew, in fact they say it makes it faster than a lot of the automatic drip machines.  Another feature that was mentioned was that the basket has measure marks to show you how many grinds you should put into the basket depending on the number of cups you are making. 

One complaint had to do with the length of the power cord.  The customer stated that it was rather short, about 18 inches long. If you choose to buy this percolator, make sure you have room for it right next to an electrical outlet.

All in all, most of the customers that bought this percolator were happy with it and would recommend buying it.


Pros & Cons

(Back to Top)

ProsPros:  The Hamilton Beach 40614 Coffee Percolator is durable and has several good features.  It is made out of stainless steel and makes a great cup of hot joe.  It doesn’t require filters because it has a permanent stainless steel filter basket, even though there are some customers that still use a filter with the machine.  The handle is cool to the touch so it won’t burn you when you are pouring a cup of brew.  Consumers really seem to like the no drip spout.  All in all, this is a simple percolator that makes good hot brew and is easy to clean and easy to use.



ConsCons:  We didn’t run across many complaints except for the power cord being too short.  This problem is solved if you have a place for your percolator that is right next to an electric outlet.  Another complaint that we saw a few times was that the basket has too large of openings and allows a considerable amount of grounds to circulate even though there were other consumers that said when they made their coffee, no grounds got through the basket.  We have come to the conclusion that those consumers that were having problems with the grounds might not be using the right kind of grounds.  It seems that coarser grounds work better in percolators.
