What an incredible coffee maker! The no carafe, water reservoir, permanent filter, dispensing light, size, weight, and look of this is much more than I expected. I can't imagine ANYONE having a single complaint about it. It is incredibly easy to clean and maintain as well. I can't even think of one suggestion to improve it. I've only had it a week, but I love it....I VERY HIGHLY recommend this coffeemaker!!!
I think that I am going to LOVE this coffee maker. I just purchased it this week. The only con that I have seen so far is that I had a "devil" of a time getting the cord to come out. I even had my husband try to get it out further than the approx. 5" that would come out. I went back online to read the specs, & when I saw that the cord was supposed to be 24", & it said to pull firmly, I decided that the cord would either come out, or I would be sending the product back, I really pulled, & it finally came out. Some tweaking is in order there.....
I had the previous model for 6 years . I love the tank style as all the water you put in is used and doesnt sit in the machine. Coffee comes out hot n stays hot. To the previous reviews who complained, pull the cord out all the way, its 24 inches long , not 6. ( people today cannot read directions ). And the coffee comes out perfectly hot... Any hotter youd have to let it cool. I will end by saying Ive never had a Cuisinart appliance break, only whim caused me to ever replace one. ( my first grind and brew was yellow .. I no longer have a yellow kitchen )
I LOVE this coffee maker...it works like a Kuerig minus all the pods and waste...I can make as much or as little as I want...it keeps the coffee super hot, and it is easy to clean as all the parts are removable and easier to see if the 'pot' is clean by looking inside and viewing the metal plate. I would highly recommend this coffeemaker...
My brother had been using his original Cuisinart (the older version of this) that was a wedding gift 26 years ago. He mentioned it should have a light into the cup so you can see how full your cup is - I looked this one up, the newest one, and bought it for him. NOT because the old one was broken, just because I wanted to give him a new one with the light he mentioned. This one will probably last another 26 years. Keeps coffee hot for a while with no burned taste, like in a pot. His family drinks way too much coffee in a day to use Kcups - he'd need a 2nd job to pay for them. Great, great buy.
This newest coffee maker is far superior to the previous model. It keeps the coffee plenty hot and I especially enjoy the light to see when the coffee is coming into the cup. Dealing with overstock was also a pleasure. Things arrived in a reasonable amount of time and the price was great.
Purchased this one to replace an older version of the same model. This new model is much improved from the older version. I really love ithe detachable clear water reservoir which makes filling the coffee maker so much easier then filling the older version. Great improvement!
