Well worth the money. The coffee brews fast as does the hot water system. The variable heat plate lets me make coffee for myself and my husband (who wakes up 1 hr after me) without it tasting burnt. The hot water system is an added bonus as our son and I both enjoy hot chocolate while my husband makes tea. We've already taken advantage of making Cup of Soup with it being cold season now. This is a fabulous addition to any kitchen as it takes the place of multiple gadgets and manages to be stylish. The carafe is easy to clean (dishwasher safe) and DOES NOT DRIP! The water reservoir is easy to view on the side of the machine unlike the regular version of the coffee maker without the hot water system (you have to peer inside the water tank). Exactly what we needed. A+
So far so good, we love this coffee maker! My husband drinks about 4 cups of tea a day so this is perfect for him! My coffee definitly tastes less bitter than it did with my old cheaper maker. I like the carbon water insert filters, I think that does help with the taste of the water. The area you pour the water into for the "hot water" section is large and convient however the area you pour the water into for the cofee maker is much smaller and takes a little more focus... But it's worth it for us. The water heats up very quickly as well. I find myself refilling the water side more frequently than I anticipated though, it seems to hold enough water for about 3 cups of tea. We use it alot! The fill water light, lights up when it's low on water, which is nice. If you don't use hot water or drink beverages other than coffee, I would NOT recommend this. This is designed for people who drink other hot beverages on a "regular basis". If you are primarily a cofee drinker, get a regular pot. This unit is a bit larger than a regular coffee maker, so it does take up a little more space. I have not used the hot water for oatmeal or grits yet, but I'm looking forward to trying that out. Overall GREAT buy... we love it, looks stylish, great performance, would buy again!

My complaints about this product are that the amount of space given for you to pour in water on the top to brew coffee is very small which makes it easy to spill your water. Also, the reservoir for the hot water system sometimes drips water, making a mess on the counter.

Worked well but was too tall for my cabinet area. Also does not have a way to see how much water you have in pot on outside of pot. If you are short and can't see down into pot that is inconvenient. Loved the hot water feature!

I don't have to buy filters anymore because this has a metal one that you rinse out. It has 3 settings for coffee temperature and when it's on the highest setting the coffee is piping hot! Perfect! It's not too big on the counter- love the convienience of the hot water heater too.
I am in love with the coffee maker! I heard other people say that a good coffee maker can make all the difference in the world and it does. The water heats hotter than any other maker I have had and the coffee is so fresh and tasty. The hot water dispenser is awesome, too! The only thing I wish it did have was an automatic brewing suspend before the pot is finished so you can grab that first cup! You can turn it off, wait about 30-45 seconds, then turn it on again, though. The water reservoir is a tight poor area, so you just need to pull the maker well away from under a cabinet to get it filled without dribbling. It also allows you to control the temp of the warming plate which is great! The hot water reservoir holds enough water for about 3 cups and the pull out tray at the bottom makes it easy to fill a travel mug. Highly recommend this appliance!

This coffee pot is just what the "doctor" ordered. We needed something in our office for the coffee lovers, but also didn't want to leave out the tea drinkers. The hot water dispenser is great for a cup of tea in the afternoon, or even soup for lunch.
This is the second Cuisinart coffee maker we have purchased in the past two years. Both times, the water reservoir developed a leak via normal usage and now leaks water all over our counter. The unit is unusable and we are now returning for a second time. This is a great coffee maker when it works, but make sure you have the order information handy in the event of a return. Cuisinart has a three year warranty on this item. You may very well need to use it.
This is a great coffee maker. Looks great in the kitchen, and brews fast. I don't like the beep that goes off after the coffee is done, but its tolerable.

I'm sure the product is fine. But, imagine my disappointment when I found the exact same product at a store in town for fifteen dollars less, even after the Black Friday discount. I will be sure in the future to compare the prices more diligently. I made the assumption that this site had great deals.
This is by far the most well made,well thought out coffee maker I have ever owned! Filtration all around, fast hot water when ever you want, my kids love it for hot choc. and I love it for tea. The machine is top quality and user friendly.

I really like this coffeemaker. It looks great on a counter, fairly compact. I love that it boils water for tea and also makes great coffee! Has a programmable timer which is convenient for mornings. It does have a triangle-cylindrical (weird to describe) coffee filter, which is a little strange. It comes with 4 specially shaped filters, (i.e: Cuisinart is trying to make you buy their specially made, expensive filters!) but truthfully, I've just been using a normal filter and it brews fine! Also, I have noticed if I pour at a certain angle, it tends to spill a little. Those are the only downfalls! It looks great in my kitchen! Overall, very pleased
