  8. The use of accessory attachments not recommended by the appliance manufacturer may cause injuries.
  9. Do not operate any appliance with a damaged supply cord or plug, or after the appliance malfunctions or has been dropped or damaged in any manner. Supply cord replacement and repairs must be conducted by the manufacturer, its service agent, or similarly qualified persons to avoid a hazard.

Other Consumer Safety Information

This appliance is intended for household use only.
Shock Hazard:
This appliance has a polarized plug(one wide blade) that reduces the risk of electric shock. The plug fits only one way into a polarized outlet. Do not defeat the safety purpose of the plug by modifying the plug in any way or by using an adapter. If the plug does not fit fully into the outlet, reverse the plug. If it still does not fit, have an electrician replace the outlet. The length of the cord used on this appliance was selected to reduce the hazards of becoming tangled in or tripping over a longer cord. If a longer cord is necessary, an approved extension cord may be used.

The electrical rating of the extension cord must be equal to or greater than the rating of the appliance. Care must be taken to arrange the extension cord so that it will not drape over the countertop or tabletop where it can be pulled on by children or accidentally tripped over. To avoid an electrical circuit overload, do not use another high-wattage appliance on the same circuit with this appliance.

Single-Serve Side Parts and Features

Hamilton Beach 49933 2-Way Drip Coffee Maker 1

The coffeemaker will automatically shut off after the brew cycle is complete.

Burn Hazard.
To avoid contact with hot coffee or water:

  • Do not use more than 14 ounces (414 ml) of water.
  • Fill a single-serve reservoir with a mug or cup into which the coffee will be brewed.
  • Fully insert mug or cup under filter basket.

The BOLD mode will require additional time to complete a brewing cycle. If the Brew Option is not selected, the coffeemaker will automatically brew on the regular/default setting.

Tips for Best-Tasting Coffee

  • All coffees are made from either arabica beans robusta beans, or some combination of both. Arabica beans are slightly more expensive but tend to produce better-tasting coffee.
  • Ground coffee will become stale much faster than whole beans. If buying preground coffee, choose a package with the latest expiration date or a smaller quantity.
  • If grinding whole beans, set your coffee grinder on a fine/medium grind. This will yield the best-tasting grounds. Try to use freshly ground coffee within about a week of grinding.
  • Using a water filter, filtered water, or bottled water will yield better-tasting coffee than tap water.
  • Use approximately 1 Tablespoon of grounds for each cup of coffee being made. To avoid overflow, use slightly less grounds (3/4 Tablespoon [11.1 ml]) when brewing decaf or flavored coffees. Also, be aware that using coffee that is ground too finely may also cause the filter basket to overflow.
  • Make sure your coffeemaker is clean. See the “Care and Cleaning” sections.

Care and Cleaning – Single-Serve Side 

  • All coffeemakers should be cleaned at least once a month (once a week for areas with hard water).
  • Pour 1/2 cup (118 ml) of plain white vinegar and 1/2 cup (118 ml) of cold water into a single-serve side reservoir.
  • Press the I (ON) button. Press the (OFF) button after 30 seconds and wait 30 minutes. Press the I (ON) button. Press the (OFF) button when finished.
  • Run 2–3 more brew cycles with  CLEAN WATER only. Allow to cool between cycles. DO NOT use the “SANI” setting when washing in the dishwasher. “SANI” cycle temperatures could damage your product.
