Hamilton Beach has two filters available, as of 2015. There is an 8- to 12-cup permanent filter and a water filter. Both filters have a suggested retail price of $9.99.
The permanent filter eliminates the need to use paper filters in a Hamilton Beach coffee maker. This filter is made for the cupcake models, but also fits BrewStation models. The filter is easy to clean, is made of gold-tone mesh and reviews for the filter on Amazon.com are very positive. The filter earns 4 stars out of 5 stars. Users report that it makes great tasting coffee, but to make sure the filter fits the model before buying.
The other Hamilton Beach filter is a water filter, and it fits most of the Hamilton Beach coffee makers, including all of the BrewStation models. Each filter can last up to 60 brewing cycles, improving the flavor of coffee by removing the taste of chlorine. There are markings on the handle that show when the filter needs to be replaced. This filter is highly reviewed on Amazon.com, receiving a score of 3.4 stars out of 5 stars. Those who do not rate this filter high claim that the handle is long, that there are more affordable options and that people can get the same results by using filtered water from the start.
