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
I purchased this after a recommendation from a friends who was using the same machine. It replaced another Cuisinart I'd had for over 10 years that stopped working after a lightning storm - so I know that is the reason. I love how hot the coffee gets, as well as the hot water function of this machine too, which makes it great for teas, oatmeal and hot lemon water in the morning. I love my coffee maker - I think you'll like it too.
