Design & Capability
Hamilton Beach 49981A is a sleek single serve brewer that features a stainless steel scoop that doubles as a doser and filter basket.

Just scoop your coffee, insert it directly into the machine, and begin to brew.

This coffee maker utilizes the simplicity of ground coffee and brews a customizable cup quickly: an 8 oz. cup in less than 90 seconds or a 14 oz. travel mug in under two-and-a-half minutes.

Not sure how much coffee to add when brewing? No worries — each scoop filter is labeled with two measuring lines for exact serving amounts.

The buttons are simple and easy to locate, the filters and reservoir are moderately easy to access – the top of the machine flips up – and adjusting the tray becomes quite easy.

It also has a netting strainer that works with all types of coffee bean.

Pros:
• Quiet.
• Well built.
• Quick brew time.
• Easy to use & clean.
• Good flavor of coffee.
• Does not clog with dark/oily roasts.
• Adjustable tray to fit different mug sizes.

Cons:
• No auto start.
• Susceptible to overflowing coffee.
• Coffee splatters if the mug is too far under the brew head.
• No reservoir so you need to heat and brew each cup of coffee separately.
• Filter doesn't do a great job at keeping sediment/coffee sludge out of your mug.
