This is my second Cuisinart Programmable Coffeemaker. The first one last 7 years. It's a great daily use coffeemaker. It has a nice design, the stainless steel fits into my kitchen nicely. It's easy to use, it can be programmed to have your coffee hot and fresh when you wake up! Overall, for the price it can't be beat.
With everything becoming more complex, more confusing, more extreme in order to be more versatile, appliances that do a single thing well have become somewhat rare. However, this Cuisinart still provides the same quality and simple operation when I bought my first one years ago. I was happy to find it still available, and it works just as well as my first one did for years and years.
We had the same Cuisinart Coffeemaker for several years until it finally stopped working. We wanted exactly the same model and found it on Overstock.com. The price was better than anywhere else and we thought it would take several days to arrive, but it arrived the next day. We are very pleased with the item and Overstock.com

Second one in 10 years. My last one lasted that long. I think the quality of the coffee is great tasting and use it daily. I am very pleased with Cuisinart and all their products. Overstock is **.00 dollars cheaper on this than retail stores in my city.

This coffee maker is rock solid. The most important pro is its superior ability to brew great tasting HOT coffee instead of the tepid colored water spewed out by so many other brands. The warming plate has three temperature options depending upon your personal preference and can keep the coffee hot for up to 4 hours without scorching it. The gold tone permanent filter makes clean-up a breeze but you also have the option of using disposable paper filters. The small charcoal water filter eliminates chlorine taste but isn't needed if you already use filtered water. The heavy duty glass carafe pours with minimal dripping and its lid snaps on & off for easy cleaning. The control panel's retro-style toggle switch and dual twist-type selector knobs are easy to use and offer a nostalgic flashback to the simpler days before push buttons and touchpads. The small clock's LCD display can be a bit difficult to see especially in dim lighting but I consider that as a minor con since I only use it for programming the timer. The same thing applies to the small black lettering of the selector knob options which can be a bit difficult to make out against the brushed stainless steel finish. Like most any coffee maker, condensation located on the underside of the lid tends to drip when you open it after brewing; however, the water reservoir is designed with a curved lip at the upper rear to help catch dripping water when you open the lid to its fully open position a few degrees past vertical. While this coffee maker's finish is brushed stainless steel, it's made of very sturdy plastic which only makes sense because it doesn't rust & corrode over time like metal does when exposed to moisture.
I just bought a second Cuisinart Coffee maker- I bought the previous coffee maker for a second home and love it so much I got another! It is VERY stylish with the stainless, and has plenty of options for brewing your coffee. It is solid and reliable and is a great buy.
Love the coffee this maker produces. I have had three of the exact same style over the years. My parents are now on their second. Literally thousands of perfect pots of coffee. The control of the carafe temperature is my favor feature. I love HOT coffee!
