I got this wonderful new coffee machine as a gift and I've gotta say that I'm really happy with it. No more full pots of coffee going to waste because I can't either drink it all or it goes cold before I get to it.This machine is detail oriented and does exactly what it's asked every time. Keeps coffee hot for hours and taste is very consistant.I found that if I feel like 8 cups of coffee one day, than I'll fill it with 8 cups of water and turn the coffee grind dial to 6 cups and the strength to "mild" for a perfect cup of coffee.If I feel like a stronger more bold cup of coffee than with a one touch button I'll use the "med" setting instead. I clean the grind chute about every 7 times, or once a week and it's always made excellent coffee for me. No more grinding coffee beans for the freshest coffee anymore, this machine does it all!!My beloved and loyal Bodum coffee machine has been officially placed into storage.
I had the previous model to this and the grinder broke after a year. I found out that it was common and Cuisinart redesigned with a new Burr grinder which is more durable and grinds the coffee better. Also love that this model has a bin to hold a 1/2 lb of beans. One less step to make coffee every day!! If you are a coffee-person, you will love this machine.
I have used the cuisinart 12 cup grind and brew for several years. I love the convenience of a self grind machine. It gives us fresh coffee each morning. In fact the grinding is our alarm clock many mornings.
I love the thermos carafe too. Coffee is fresh to the last cup. No burnt coffee taste after sitting awhile. This is our second pot in about 5 yrs. so the only down side is that they don't last a really long time. Otherwise, it is the best coffee system I've ever owned.
After reading the complete manual I am thoroughly satisfied with this product. Whatever you do - don't forget to empty grounds or to change the water amount. This machine calls for focus, and I need that. Great looking!
I am overall happy with the coffeemaker. We just replaced a Cuisinart Grind & Brew 10-cup
with this newer - upgraded model. I like the 4,6,8,10,12 cup size option and
that we can store a whole weeks worth of beans. I also like that you can control your coffee strength mild vs. strong.
The coffee pours much nicer than our old Cuisinart caraf, but I don't think it keeps the coffee very hot.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Good Quality
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Descripton was accurate
The chute clogs easily or not enough coffee did grind. The coffee looks like dirty water many times. I would go for a separate grinder. The manual does not say enough. The manufacturer created a separate last minute warning label requesting to clean up the chute. The design is weak.
The pot is poorly designed as well. You have to handle the pot upside down to finally get rid of the 20% liquid left inside. That would scare any guest that you would be serving at your table.
I would buy to show you have a lot of money to lose.
After one year of use the grinder stopped working. I called the 800 customer service number listed in the booklet and they were able to troubleshoot the problem with me. The shoot had become clogged with coffee. The booklet didn't adequately describe how to clean this but now I know. The good - it looks good, makes good coffee. The bad -the carafe doesn't keep the coffee very hot and it's difficult to pour, especially when it is almost empty.
