The Hamilton Beach FrontFill Deluxe 12 Cup Programmable Coffee Maker is easy to fill from the front with a FrontFill water reservoir and swing-open brew basket for coffee grounds. It's easy to program the coffee maker and clock with intuitive digital controls and Easy-Touch programming. Set the coffee maker up to 24 hours ahead for fresh hot coffee in the morning when you wake up. Customize the strength of your coffee to suit your tastes with the Select-a-Brew brew-strength selector. Choose from bold, regular, and 1-4 cup brew strength options. The coffee maker automatically turns off after 2 hours for peace of mind, and the "Time Since Brew" freshness indicator shows you how long since your coffee brewed to ensure you're always drinking fresh coffee. The coffee maker reminds you when it's time to run the self-cleaning cycle for consistently great-tasting coffee cup after cup. The 12 cup carafe and Lift and Clean brew basket are both dishwasher safe. Auto Pause and Pour stops the flow of coffee when you lift the carafe to pour a cup of coffee before the brewing stops without making a mess. The no-drip design of the 12 cup borosilicate glass carafe eliminates mess.
