Hamilton Beach FlexBrew Coffee Maker Review (Kcups & Pot)

so my wife has been bugging me to review
this because she’s wanted the our other
coffee makers starting to break and
she’s wanted to try this out so that’s
why I’m reviewing it right now I moved
it up I had other products in front of
it and my honey got to keep her happy so
I moved a coffee maker
to the front so this is a problem that I
have discovered being a k-cup coffee
drinker okay one of the things that I
have a trouble with the k-cup is to fill
my where’s my little coffee let me get
Tami’s on them to fill one of these
standard coffee tumblers I have to the
highest setting does only ghost about
here and the k-cup machine then at the
pull the cake up out throw it out put
another one in to get this much more
coffee is that ridiculous we came up
with a smart idea
in the beginning when k-cups first came
out we run water through my ice and then
we distill up we build it here and then
to here and that was cool and then we’re
like okay so it doesn’t it just doesn’t
work it’s not enough coffee we kind of
want a little bit more than just wine
cake up but not as much as 2 K cups it
was kind of frustrating I want what I
want all right so then there were days
that I drink this and I’d want more and
I got to do two more K Cups I’m going to
be Fork I’m like this is ridiculous
sometimes I want a pot of coffee I’m not
going to drink the whole pot but it’s
nice to have for everybody when you have
guests over I’m constantly popping in
popping in these K Cups oh you want one
you want when you want one it’s kind of
annoying so they came up with the flex
group Hamilton Beach I bought this at
Bed Bath & Beyond he’s one of my 20%
hawks so come in close and let me show
you all the features this flex crew has
[Music]
okay so here it is everything you want
its k-cup machine on this side pot of
coffee on this side you can even it
gives you one of these where you can put
in your ground to just make one cake up
by hand with specialty grounds sometimes
you want some you know Kenya ground or a
Nicaraguan ground or whatever and you
can put in your own coffee grounds or
use a regular flavored cake up a hot
cocoa apple-cider during the holidays
all that good stuff
I still like the k-cup machine don’t get
me wrong but I kind of want to go
towards this most of the time this is 12
cups of brewing it’s got the timer I’ve
got a water tank here you pour water in
here for your cake ups you can even set
the timer like most coffee pots nowadays
so there it is
so you can do 12 cups here or up to 10
ounces with a cake up 14 ounces with
your own cake up that you filled
yourself okay so I’m back from the store
because I just bought a brand new coffee
maker and they didn’t give me any
filters not one paper filter came with
this they don’t tell you that there’s no
warning nothing so I’m digging through
the Box not one filter to make coffee
unbelievable good news is there is a
quart attached I don’t have to buy that
alright let’s continue with this video
now so I’m going to fill this up if you
look so it goes in here and as you can
see as I fill it up the side marker over
there show John we still have all a 2-14
I’m only using 10 but I’m putting up to
14 that’s the max there we go place my
coffee cup in there getting ready to
hope that little item right 100 K will
be looked out in here this is supposed
to come out all right make sure you take
this out this is for later put my lid
back on there we go
now put your coffee right there there we
go
okay let’s open our little because
machine there’s the holder for the
k-cups this thing comes out and clean it
we want it in there for right now I am
doing Cinnabon yay Cinnabon alright
you’re going to close it it punctures it
and it’s ready to go
you peel from the bottom there we go
it’s really hard to see why is the
brightness it’s so dim I mean literally
how you’re seeing is how I’m seeing it I
can barely see that we see if I can turn
the light up so wonder if I program it
if it brightens up that is so dark okay
so if all the directions I still can’t
set the time on the thing and you can
barely see the screen so that’s
absolutely horrible that is a horrible
display screen it literally looks that
dark in real life too not just cause
it’s on camera so I can’t stand that
feature
why sure hope I have received I mean
change the Bru strengthens you have to
trust me that it says regular there grew
strength to bold I want bold I don’t
think he really matters with the k-cup
but let’s try it anyway and brew now
I don’t know if anything’s happening
wait it’s just the power just went off
the power just went off do you see that
that’s the power light that hit Brunel
oh my goodness
booth press brew now but mr. brewing
alright second try here we go
it it just turned it off the Brunel
button just turned it off okay so I’m
going to turn it back on
okay got water in got my cake up I want
some coffee I’m starting to have a
caffeine fit withdrawals kicking in I’m
going to try and hold it and it goes off
so I’m going to I got single K couplet
now I got a hit brew now so I didn’t hit
Singler I didn’t choose a side so you
got to choose sides guide kind of like a
war okay so I chose the feet yep single
that’s ready to go brew now that’s ready
to go
it says brewing here we go guys it’s
trying you got to hear what it’s doing
this come on come on come on
and we have the stuff we have brewing
Wow
okay coming out Wow good thing and stop
and went right to the top there
yippee alright here we go guys you ready
first cup of coffee oh oh hi
all right yep that’s copy alright okay
so let’s go to step two and test to
really test to is going to be my own
coffee grounds in the cake outside but
one scoop in I’ll better make it smaller
scoop one and two there we go
close it up okay and place this right in
here if it’s right in there close this
latch open your water reservoir pour
your water in now remember when you use
your own coffee grounds you can do 14
ounces not a k-cup but your own coffee
grounds I’m taking this whole section
out goodbye and putting my little
tumbler there everything’s in place
alright and I’m going to hit the brew
now button I already have a single
selected right we’re good Rou now wow
this takes a long time
starting there goes and then it just
kind of stopped now that’s going again
and it’s stopping right there it’s just
kind of dripping oh here it goes again
it almost filled the whole thing see so
that’s that’s pretty good Cheers
oh that’s a better cup of coffee my own
grounds
I don’t think King cups have my wife’s
lxk cup so we got to keep the k-cup
machine going oh it does come out hot
alright put this off to the side now
we’re going to get pot of coffee and see
how long that takes
all right here we go I’m going to pull
the little holder out put the paper in
there put some coffee grounds in here
replace it in here let’s go get some
water okay I have it exactly at 12 cup
line you ever notice when you put water
in you never get 12 cups let’s see how
much we get ripped off but that’s what
every coffee baker I’m not blaming this
one alright so here we go how it goes
yeah that’s where goes so to make sure
all right all the water’s in there I
just switched to carafe so he hit the
graph button and hit the Brunell button
and there you go
Oh started wow that started alright the
pot side starts way faster than the
k-cup side
okay coffee’s done it stopped right
above the 11 cup mark it didn’t go all
the way to the top but that’s fine
that’s plenty a copy right there I ain’t
drinking all that I haven’t held a pot
of coffee and quite a while
alright here we go okay that’s the best
cup of coffee out of all three ways I
did it today brewing the pot so here’s
the deal I’m so sorry I’m sending this
back did it do what it promised
yes it did it did the k-cup it did my
version of the k-cup of my own grounds
it did a pot of coffee
everything was painfully long everything
was painfully slow okay
this worked as promised the display
screen completely dim you can’t even
read it it’s absolutely a horrible
display screen setting the clock I still
as we’ve been brewing all this coffee
I’m trying to figure it out I cannot get
the clock to be programmed that’s not a
deal breaker because I’m going to use a
clock on my coffee pot but you guys
might because you need to programming
for the morning I don’t do that but you
might so there’s a few things that
bothered me this is an $80 value so I’m
going to take this back to my $80 back
and I’m going to go to the store and I’m
going to get just one of those like 10
$20 mister copies and I’ll put it down
below when I want a pot of coffee I’ll
bring it out and I already bought my own
filters not today gave me any that
bothered me to know paper filters so a
few things bugged me it wasn’t a failure
it just wasn’t a huge success so there
you go it’s your call what do you think
Hamilton Beach flex brew 2-way coffee
and once again I’m sending it back and
I’ll see on the next episode
