Love, love, love this coffee pot BUT I'M ON THE 3rd ONE!! First two stopped working in less than a year! Cuisinart replaced the first unit but charges shipping. Wasn't doing that again! Decided to take a chance on a refurbished one .... hoping whatever problem this model has was addressed. If this one dies, I'm done with Cuisinart!
This coffee maker makes a great cup of coffee. It arrived quickly. Easy to set up and program. You have to be very careful filling it with the reservoir. A seperate pouring pitcher would be better. I read that several people complained about it leaking. I think I found their problem. When you open the top to set up making a pot for the morning, the condensation from the lid will run down the back and leave a puddle. It's easily taken care of if you carefully open it slowly and dry it off first. Another con is that it is dark under the brew nozzle while filling cup and the clock is small and hard to read. It needs to be lit also. But it makes a hot cup of great coffee and it will stay hot. I would highly recommend. Great maker for the price.
I have only had my coffemaker a few days, but so far I am loving it. I bought the refurbished model, but everything was like new and I even received the gold tone filter (it wasn't suppose to be included) - Thanks! The programming for auto brewing was pretty simple. The users' manuel is very detailed and you can't go wrong if you follow the instructions. I love the 1-4 cup option which provides an even "hotter" brew for smaller quantities. So far this is an excellent product. I hope it last. It also looks good on my counter. OH BTW - the coffee comes out delicious.
I'll start by saying that this makes a great cup of coffee and it's piping hot. If it didn't do that, I'd rate it a zero, if that were possible, because they just don't last. This is the third one I've had in less than 3 years. But, because of the quality of the coffee it makes (while it works), I've put up with buying one every 7-8 months. The third one better be a charm, though, or I'll finally have to say enough is enough. So unless I received two lemons, you will be taking a chance if you decide to purchase one. I recommend it only because of the quality of the coffee it makes, not for it's durability.
I got what I ordered, a coffee pot that dispenses one cup of coffee at a time. It works well and gives out great coffee. To me the best part is the cleanliness of the machine, with other pots that have the typical glass cantors they get corrosion on the burners and the coffee doesn't get hot enough. I also like the fact that if I want a quick cup during the day I can get it.

The coffee maker itself is great but as several people have noted in the reviews here, the electronics go haywire after a while. We got our first one replaced because it wouldn't power up and now the replacement is doing the same thing. So frustrating. Just glad I didn't order extra very expensive water filters. Not only wouldn't I buy this again, but I'd have a hard time buying anything by Cuisinart again.
I love this coffeemaker - the fact that it has no carafe was just the feature I wanted. However, after about 2 months, it literally just stopped working. No power to the unit at all. The manufacturer has replaced the unit without question a total of (4) times. Every coffeemaker exhibited the same issue, as if some chip inside the unit malfunctions after a certain period of time. The longest one unit worked was 6 months and I thought I finally had a winner. Alas, we had a power failure, and the pot never came on again - although every other appliance in the kitchen was fine. I regret that for this reason, and after so many units, I had to finally go with a Bunn.
I had purchased this product 4 years ago and was extremely impressed with it's performance. This coffee maker also produces the best tasting coffee I have ever had and this is why I recently purchased it again . It cost half the original price of my first and even though it is refurbished, the quality and performance are superior. if you are a coffee lover then this is the perfect model to purchase. I also like it because there is no need for a coffee pot and cleaning it is a breeze. If you are thinking of getting this .....GET IT and I assure you that you will be satisfied 100% !!!
Overheat protect frequently engaged when making coffee requiring the unit sit unplugged for several hours/overnight before it would reset. After a period of nearly a month without needing a reset the unit needed to sit unplugged three days in a row....which was 2 days after the very abbreviated warantee period for a refurbished product bought through Overstock. So after a few months I have a coffeemaker doorstop.
I really like this coffee ,I bought it 5 years ago 2009 and it still works like a charm ,the 2-4 cup works perfect for me.One down fall it's almost impossible to find the charcoal filters that are placed inside of the coffee maker .I saw them at Amazon two for*** wish I could a better price.Over all it's a good deal @ ***
In other reviews, I have seen a complaint that they don't last but I have had my refurbished Coffee maker for 2 years. It is used daily with the timer. The coffee is always hot, tasty and fresh. The parts of the maker are dishwasher safe. I love this maker so much that I just might buy another one for the day it does stop working.
Do not purchase this coffee maker. It does make excellent coffee, but eventually, the seal will break and you will have coffee that is left in the reservoir dripping slowly out of the unit. This will lead to coffee all over your counters. I purchased the platinum protection, and had a total of 3 of these before I gave up. Each seal broke within a year. Not acceptable for such an expensive maker.

Simply the best coffee maker I've found. I've used it daily for over a year now and I'm still impressed with its ease of use and overall quality.

Love this coffee pot, and so far, after 4 months no problems. I bought it to replace my dcc-1200 cusinart and I love not having a carafe to wash and get stains out of. The bottom piece conveniently slides out and provides a space to put your travel cup under. My travel cups are just a touch too tall but if I pull the coffee pot to the edge of the counter, no problem. One design flaw is that water from condensation inside does slide down the back of the coffee pot when you open it. Or if you slide it to the back of your counter too fast or with force with a full water tank the water will splash out the back top and run down the back. I like the coffee pot enough that these two things I just learned to compensate for with paper towels and moving the pot carefully.

I love this coffee machine because it keeps your coffee warm without a insulated pot. The only downside is when you are filling your travel mug, you cannot slid your travel mug under to fill directly. We found a stainless creamer canister that we keep at the coffee maker at all times. We just fill it and transfer to our travel mugs and there is no mess. It's really simple and this coffee maker is worth it.

We ordered this because a friend had one and it made great coffee. Sadly, the first one we got was not in good repair, so we sent it back. We asked for an exchange and it was at our house even before we had sent the first one back. So they really back up thier product. We love this coffeemaker and would buy it again in a heartbeat.
