I bought this coffee maker three years ago and it makes the best coffee, keeps it hot for a couple of hours. Unfortunately, it started leaking about two months ago. I know other people who own this appliance and they are having the same problem. I am not planning on buying anothe cuisinart...
Makes great coffee. Did not receive the paper filters or the cleaning brush as stated on the carton. Has a permanent filter so no problem there but would have liked to have had the cleaning brush. Overall a great product if you like freshly ground coffee.
I love this coffeepot. You put the water and filter in the night before and the coffee beans are freshly ground and coffee brewed in the morning when you wake up. The grinder is a little loud, but just think of it as a pre-alarm. This coffeepot makes the best coffee. The carafe is pre-heated a bit as it brews so that the coffee stays hot and fresh for hours. The only negative comment I have on this product is durability. We had one just like it previously and it started to leak around the heating element after 4 years. It should last longer than that, but I loved the pot so much I bought another one. Hope this one lasts longer.
This coffee maker is the best I've ever owned. While the price may seem steep for a coffee machine, it's worth the money. The coffee is measured perfectly for strength and number of cups set to brew, so there is no wasted grounds and it's a perfect tasting cup of java every time! I highly recommend this Coffeemaker!
I've primarily been a tea drinker my whole life. I've owned a couple inexpensive coffee makers in my time but when my last one cracked I decided to invest in a higher end model to see if I would like it...and I do! I was intimidated by it at first but there is a video tutorial that is phenomenal! You can literally set your coffee maker up as you watch the video. Like any other coffee maker I've owned, you have to play with it a few times before you find the way you like your coffee - maybe because I haven't been drinking coffee my whole life - for those of you that have, you may not need the buffer time to get used to the machine. It's beautiful and I love waking up to the aroma of a fresh pot of coffee! Being able to grind my own beans is super cool too! I just love this so much! I'm so glad I didn't buy a keurig! For the cost, this is way more worth it!
