Let’s take a look.
Top six deals on Reviewers’ Choice winners
This West Bend Bread Maker is a Reviewers’ Choice winner with a score of 91/100 based on 15 reviews. This bread maker can handle up to two pounds of dough, make three different loaf sizes and has 12 pre-sets including basic, French and sweet. On sale right now for $59, the originally priced $99 bread maker is praised for its ease and reliability.
“The bread is delicious and consistent, which isn’t always the case when doing it by hand. Oh, and its so quiet. If it wasn’t for the buzzer I’d forget about it. Its really easy to use, clean up is a snap, the interface is simple to understand. It has a buzzer on the dough setting that lets you know when it’s done and also when it’s done mixing so you can add dried fruits or other things before it starts kneading on the bread setting. Both very nice features.” –usernamechallenged, Reviewer since 2011
The Hamilton Beach Big Mouth might not have gotten the Best Overall award in the juicer category, but with a score of 87/100 based on 67 reviews it did earn the Best Value one. And now this money saving juicer is discounted even more, down $10 from $59 to $49. Called the Big Mouth because it can fit whole fruits and vegetables into the top and juice them you don’t have to cut anything up first like you do with most juicers. It will also make juice with and without pulp. According to Viewpoints reviewers, this juicer is worth investing in despite the fact it’s a little noisy.
“Hamilton Beach Big Mouth Juice Extractor makes juicing easier. For years we did manual juicing. Hamilton Beach Big Mouth Juice Extractor has a Big Mouth, so the fruit or vegetable can be easily put in the machine to be turned into a nutritious beverage… It can tend to be noisy. I don’t expect the appliance to be silent, but I would like it to be a bit quieter.” –kvalebear, Reviewer since 2009
The Hamilton Beach BrewStation is a different kind of coffee maker. Its 88/100 score based on 59 reviews makes it a Reviewers’ Choice winner, but it is the machine’s unique design that got it there. The BrewStation has an insulated tank where it keeps your coffee once it is brewed, so there is no need for a carafe. Once it is done, just press your mug against the button on the machine until it’s full. You can use any kind of ground coffee with it and can even brew ice coffee. At Wal-Mart this coffee maker is on sale for $34.99, which is down from its original price of $37.
“Not only does it look nice on my counter, it does exactly what I wanted it to. I can leave the coffee in the pot for the entire 2 hours (it shuts off automatically after 2 hours) and it still tastes good and is still HOT! It’s the best coffee maker I’ve ever owned.” –sassey1111, Reviewer since 2009
Another Hamilton Beach Reviewer’s Choice winner is The Scoop Single-Serve. Unlike other single-serve machines, you can make coffee with any grounds you like and it will make your coffee in your favorite Christmas mug or in your travel one for your morning commute. On sale for $59, down from $70, this 94/100 scoring coffee maker is thought to be even better than Keurig.
“I know Keurig gets all of the attention nowadays, but this is a really great coffee maker and it lets you make single cups, and is great for set it and forget it. I like that you can use any type of coffee you want [in it], and it is easy to use for lots of different types when you have company. It just gives a really nice brew [and] is much less expensive than some of the more popular machines.” –teacherguy, Reviewer since 2013
Everyone knows about Keurig, the most popular single-serve coffee maker on the market. It is nice and easy: set down your mug, pop in a K-Cup, press a button and wait up to 30 seconds and you have a cup of coffee, tea, hot chocolate or apple cider. The Special Edition also lets you set the water temperature, set auto on/off and accommodates travel mugs. Known for its high price, this Reviewers’ Choice Best Overall single-serve brewer is on sale for $139, originally priced at $150. Rated 92/100 with nearly 1,000 reviews, it is easy and brews good coffee according to reviewers.
“It brews very fast, and tastes very fresh. It certainly helps you not to waste coffee when you make it, as we often can with regular coffee makers. Its kind of a good alternative to the mess of a French Press.” –jayes, Reviewer since 2009
Hamilton Beach is the winner, yet again, of the Best Value Reviewers’ Choice award in the stand mixer category. With a score of 94/100 based on 17 reviews, this mixer has a 4.5 quart bowl and 12 settings for different kinds of mixing. It is on sale right now at Wal-Mart for $149-$159, and was originally $220-200.
“It works great, looks fabulous in my kitchen (mine is white ceramic with stainless metal mixing bowl)… It is practical. It is heavy and well made. I would recommend it to anyone interested, and would definitely say that it would be a much better value overall than the overpriced Kitchen-Aid mixer! Definitely comes in handy with all of my baking habits.” –BrandiBearce, Reviewer since 2010
