I happily picked up my Hamilton Beach Easy Set Coffee Maker today. My old coffee maker konked out a week ago. I read all instructions, cleaned the machine as instructed. Ready to make coffee for tomorrow, the lid would not stay on the pot. The instructions said "do not force lid back in". (it was lose when I took it off)I did not force the lid in any way. Upon close inspection with a flashlight I find that the peg that is supposed to hold the lid in place is gone, there is nothing there but a hole on one side. I decided to go ahead and use the pot anyway because it is a lovely looking coffee maker. I fill up everything, set the clock for "time of day", that works fine, then I try to set the "start up time", well that is when the trouble started. No matter how many times I tried or what I told the computer to do, it always wanted to start my coffee pot at 6:10 P.M. I finally just gave up and will take it back to the store tomorrow. You can not argue with a computer and I do not want my coffee at 6:10 P.M.!!!!!!. I realize I could start it manually but that is not why I purchased this particular maker. So, I will return it and get one that does not talk back to me!! One that I can set myself. Oh, yes, the lid is only mentioned twice in the instruction manual. It does not tell how to take it off or how to put it back on.
