Why did you choose this product?
Our first Cuisinart coffee maker lasted around ten years, so we definitely got our money's worth out of it. When it came time to buy a new one, I shopped around, but there weren't many options with both a built-in grinder and an automatic timer. I love being able to fill the machine at bedtime, set the timer, and when I hear the beans grinding the next morning it's like my personal coffee wake-up alarm. *I do prefer Cuisinart's stainless steel carafe over the glass carafe, keeps the coffee warm without a burned taste and you don't have to worry about breakage. But we're making do with the glass one....

I like this coffee maker, it's easy to use and easy to clean plus it has a setting for 1-4 cups which is what I make and it makes the coffee taste better than if you don't press the button, it comes w a gold filter which had been easy for the clean up as well. So far so good, no complaints. Now if it just cleaned itself....Read More
While the design is different and takes some getting used to, I love this coffee pot. I purchased this because it has a programming feature and my schedule change had me waking up earlier than I was used to. Bring able to prep the morning before and have hot coffee waiting for me when I get up has been a life saver! I switched to this from a coffee press. I wanted that same fresh taste without the hassle of using three different devices in the morning: a grinder, a kettle, and the press. The only con would be the metallic colored plastic front. I wish it were metal but the plastic is still in good shape, no scratches or chipping, so it's not too bad.Read More
I purchased my first Cuisinart DGB-625 grind and brew coffeemaker in or around September/October of 2013. By December of that same year I started having trouble. Every single time we would try to run the coffeemaker (with or without the grinder), the unit would immediately turn off and begin beeping quickly. We could not figure out what was going on, but we definitely couldnt brew a pot of coffee. I called customer service and they ran me through the obligatory vinegar cleaning routine, which I did to no avail. After another week, I called customer service again and let them know that the magical vinegar trick did not work. They were pleasant and said they would send me a replacement unit (for a $10.00 shipping fee). In order to receive the replacement unit, I would also have to ship the defective unit back to them (which ended up costing me $20.00). So, I have now spent $90 on the original coffeemaker and then another $30 to get a replacement. At the time I thought, what the heck. $30 is cheaper than buying a new coffeemaker, so no big deal. Receive the new Cuisinart DGB-625 grind and brew coffeemaker quickly and think, Yay! Coffee with no beeping! Lo and behold, within two weeks, the bloody replacement coffeemaker starts doing the Exact. Same. Thing. We try to brew a pot of coffee, it shuts down, and starts beeping. Through some cursing and hitting, we eventually figured out what the problem was. For whatever reason, the coffeemaker thinks that the lid is open when it isnt. The coffeemaker wont begin brewing if the top (where you pour the water) is open. The thing is, the top ISNT open. The coffeemaker is defective and just thinks it is open. So, our choices at that point were to: Stand there and physically hold the lid down until the pot of coffee is done brewing or Put something heavy on top of the coffeemaker so that the coffeemaker thinks everything is ok. We went with Option #2 and ended up putting a candle on top of the coffeemaker. Turned out to be a bad idea because, when we tried to use the grinder and timer, the grinder shook the candle right off the top of the coffeemaker and onto the kitchen floor where it, of course, shattered everywhere. That morning we got to clean up shattered glass off our kitchen floor which is not awesome when you havent had any coffee (because, of course, without the candle the coffeemaker thought the top was open and shut down and started beeping without actually making any coffee). After the shattered glass incident, we decided to get a hand weight. Now, on our kitchen counter, we have a toaster, iHome speaker, coffeemaker, and hand weight. Every morning (or the night before if we use the timer... we dont ever use the grinder because the hand weight would probably damage our hard wood floors more than the candle did so we dont want to risk it shaking off) we set the hand weight on top of our coffeemaker in order to get some coffee. Flash forward to now: April 2014. Ive had my replacement coffeemaker for 4 months now. I bought this coffeemaker so I could have an option for fresh, ground coffee, but I cant use the grinder. I decide Im sick and tired of keeping a hand weight on my kitchen counter and its time to call customer service again. I call them and they lead me through the same mumbo jumbo about, Sure, we can send you a replacement. There will be a $10 shipping charge and then you will need to ship the replacement unit back to us at your cost. Wait, what? So, let me get this straight. I have already spent the $90 for the original unit (which didnt work) and then $30 for the replacement unit (which didnt work)... and now you want me to give you more money? And get the EXACT SAME UNIT which, quite clearly, is flawed. If I did that, that would bring my grand total (after all is said and done) to $150 and I would - more likely than not - be stuck with a third coffeemaker that doesnt work, a hand weight on my kitchen counter, and no fresh, ground coffee. Im really not interested in getting screwed a third time. My requests for them to cover shipping of the second defective unit back to them? Denied. My requested for a different model (I would be happy to cover the shipping costs, I just have no interest in receiving a third defective DGB-625)? Denied. Now I am still out $120 and have no working coffeemaker. The only plan I have going forward is to never, ever, buy another Cuisinart product again.Read More
I couldn't wait to get my grind and brew as my coffee maker had given out . I like fresh beans and have always had a separate grinder and a coffee maker which took up more counter space. The product was somewhat confusing to operate(which part slides where and which direction should each piece face as well as what to do to program the pot to come on in the am. After a few times working through these problems I have it all down pat and things are doing fine. It makes great coffee!Read More
I had purchased a Delonghi coffee maker- had to return. The coffee tasted like water. I purchased the Cuisinart Carafe less model- bitter and disgusting. That one went back too. I crossed my fingers and purchased this one. I hit it right. It makes a delicious cup, nice and hot. I haven't tried the grinder yet, but I'm sure it will be fine. I was beginning to think it wasn't possible to find a good maker anymore.Read More
I bought one for my hubby for Christmas. After 2 weeks, a mechanism inside the machine that signals to the grinder that the lid is shut stopped working. The machine would beep, but not grind. Even when we tried to turn the grinder off, the machine would only beep. We would have to place a heavy cup or bowl on top of the whole unit to get the machine to engage so we could have coffee. Overstock has wonderful customer service and promptly sent a replacement, but this one, too, started doing the same thing after 2 months. Disappointing, indeed!Read More
