Q: Does it needs coffee filters
A: I just bought it myself, great coffee maker by the way, and the instructions say you can use large flattened coffee filters to cover the bottom of the basket.submitted byKazivier - 4 years ago
A: Nope. No filters are needed for making coffee. I have used it for hot water to make instant hot cocoa, coffee, and even used it for fruit punch. I just clean it well in between uses. Use baking soda to clean build-up for the spots inside after a few uses. It is a great product.submitted byNannerGurnee - 6 years ago
A: Thank you for your question. No, the grounds go directly into the filter basket and coffee filters are not needed.submitted byHamiltonBeachTeam - 6 years agoBrand expert
Q: If I were to make my hot chocolate ahead of time and put in this just to keep warm and serve would that work?
A: I wouldn't go that route. I think chocolate is a little too thick for the mechanism; I would imagine it would gum up things.submitted byRena in the ATL - 6 years ago
A: I don't think so because when you turn the urn on it will begin to perk. But if you put water in it and let it perk and then empty the water and put the chocolate in immediately before it cools off it should keep it warm. Try this first.submitted byLaVerne - 6 years ago

Q: does it have a removable cord for safe cleaning and washing
A: Yes, the unit has a removable power cord. Please folllow the instructions in the Use and Care for cleaning.submitted byHamiltonBeachTeam - 3 years agoBrand expert
A: Yes, cord is removable. I'd still be careful to keep the water away from the place the cord goes in and to let it dry for a while before reusing.submitted byJudyK - 6 years ago
Q: Is the interior stainless steel?
A: I seriously doubt it because it's not smooth and shiny. When I empty the water and let it air dry upside down, there's residue stuck to the interior of the knobs and valves. It's impossible to clean so I pretty much stopped using it. And I don't live in a town with hard water. Thanks for reminding me - I'm going to check if I can return it.submitted byJudyK - 6 years ago
A: The heater well is a stainless steel while the body of the urn is an Aluminium material.submitted byHamiltonBeachTeam - 3 years agoBrand expert
Q: What about hot cider? Just pour in the liquid and heat up? Will it just heat up?
A: Thank you for your question. We only recommend heating water in the coffee urn.submitted byHamiltonBeachTeam - 6 years agoBrand expert
A: Well, I'm sure that you should only heat water in the pot if you plan on using it for coffee and tea at other times. But if you want to make it a dedicated cider pot, you should have no problem pouring it in and heating it up.submitted byck1234 - 6 years ago
Q: The water heats but the pot does not percolate. What are we missing?
A: Hi! That is so odd. I agree with the answer from the Hamilton Beach Team. If the stem isn't set in the well, you won't get percolating action. Good luck!submitted byRena in the ATL - 6 years ago
A: Thank you for your question. The stem would need to be seated properly on the heating well to percolate. If this does not resolve your issue, we will be happy to work with you to resolve this issue.
