Questions & Answers for Hamilton Beach Hamilton Beach 12-Cup 2-Way FlexBrew Coffee Maker, 49983P, Silver/Black

Question

Does a carafe and travel mug come with the hamilton Beach model #49983P ? The Model #49983 shows it does and is cheaper why?

Is the difference in cost due to the stainless steel vs silver painted plastic ?

Ordered both. Neither came with mug. The "P" refers to the Stainless Steel, I believe. The 49983 refers to K cups, the 49980 is for pods.
did my research but they screwed me on the travel mugs-I am returning both.

answer 5
no it does not come with a travel mug.

The difference is this one does grounds/pods & the "K-CUPS".

The other model if you read it carefully only does grounds & pods.It
does NOT do the k-cups.So in my opinion this particular model here does it all.

Both models are black with Brushed stainless steel.

Hope it helps.

answer 2
Thank you for your question. The unit will only brew on one side at a time. Do not use more than 10oz. (300 ml) of water for a single-serve pack. Adding too much water to the water reservoir will cause an error message to appear in the display, along with a long beep. Also, do not use more than 14 oz. (414 ml) of water for ground coffee or Melitta Pods. Adding more than 14 oz. of water to the water reservoir will cause an error message to appear in the display, along with a long beep. Place carafe on warming plate. Turn brew selector dial to Carafe and push brew now button to remove water. Wait for 3 beeps and blue power light to turn off. Restart the Single-Serve process.

No. If you fill the water past the "max" line for the cup side then it won't work at all. you'll have to use the water by running the carafe side till it's down to the max line, then you can use the cup side. Can't brew both sides at the same time.

No, an error will come up and not brew. You can only put enough water in for one k cup at a time. This is no problem for me but if your planning to use the K cup side for a group of people this may not work for you.

Never actually timed it but it's pretty fast...maybe 5 minutes. Faster than our old Mr. Coffee. It takes a while to heat up but once it does it pours out fast. The mini brew basket for just a couple cups, made from grounds, takes about 3 minutes.

Thank you for your question. This unit will have a programming feature for the carafe side only. The unit will only brew on one side at a time. Single-Serve side cannot be used while Carafe side is programmed. If the coffeemaker is not turned off manually, it will automatically shut off in 2 hours. You cannot adjust keep warm time for this unit.

You can program it to brew any time. I believe the warmer stays on for 1 or 2 hours then shuts off automatically. There is not a choice for how long it keeps it warm, it just stays on for the manufacturers programed time.
