Good value and good coffee! I was a bit nervous about the "refurbished" label and have only had the coffee pot weeks so we shall see how it holds up. However, the coffee is NOT bitter, it is HOT and all the features actually work as advertised. I do think the coffee pot lid is a little hard to get used to and wish there was a way to tell from the outside how much water is inside without contorting your neck to see inside the pot, but those are small inconveniences. I have searched many months for an affordable coffee pot that can make decent coffee that stays hot. I am a celiac and cannot always process commercial coffees from speciality stores nor do I want to be confined to a coffeepot that only accommodates their particular brand of little coffee containers. Now I can have good coffee right at home, save money and dress it up with flavorings of my own choosing.
I bought this coffee maker because it's supposed to be "THE" machine that brews the best coffee at the correct water temperature. I was a little concerned that it was "reconditioned" but took a chance to save a few dollars. It was a really wise decision. As usual with Overstock I received it promplty. I've been too busy to open it but tonight I did. It is brand new in every way, just beautiful, and the coffee was fantastic. I can't believe it came from the same beans as the coffee I had just this morning from my old machine! The taste was so much richer without being bitter! I love, love, love this machine and I'm ordering a second one for my summer home! Thank you again OVERSTOCK!
I ordered this product ONLY because it was clearly and explicitly labelled "black and stainless steel," because the manufacturer, Cuisinart, recently changed to a metallic plastic casing instead of the actual stainless steel previously used. I was deeply disappointed to discover that despite the clear statement in the product description, the item i received was in fact a plastic version. At that point, I gave up.

We have ordered refurbished merchandise from Overstock before, and I have to say DON't be afraid to do that. The same warranties apply as provided by the manufacturer, and the packaging was completely intact--in fact, untouched. Why not take advantage of the price break, especially with Overstock's excellent return policy?
I bought this exact coffee maker (refurbished) from Overstock 10 years ago and it has been wonderful! It has worked wonderfully over the years. Now, after 10 years, it does not heat up the coffee, so alas, I must buy a new one. I would recommend this coffee maker. It looks really nice in the stainless steel and is a great value.
This machine brews delicious coffee, as expected since it was purchased to replace an existing model that had performed well for years. The styling is functional and clean and its impressive features are: a 12-cup capacity, automatic shut-off for safety, and an audible alert when the coffee is ready to pour which sounds again prior to its shut off. A 3-month warranty provided the needed level of assurance toward the machine's mechanical soundness for me to purchase it as "refurbished" since no other options were available on this particular model.
Unfortunately, this machine did not meet expectations since its life span was merely a year. At its 12th month, the machine started acting up; shutting off without notice once the brewing process was complete, then continuing to do so intermittently once manually flipped on which is why I rate the product poorly.
Unfortunately, we are unable to verify the parts that were refurbished on this item because each item could be refurbished for a different reason. We do apologize for the inconvenience.overstockcustomercare1 on Jun 4, 2012
