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!
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...
I had an earlier model of this for nearly 8 years. It finally gave up the ghost. This one seems better, because the bean feed is so much easier to clean and holds 1/2 lbs. of beans. I love it. I would rather have a "freshly" ground cup of coffee than the processed 1 cup packages others are selling...
100% yes! With their 5 year warranty why shouldn't anyone. Their customer service is outstanding (in NJ) and they stand by their product. I unfortunately was never aware of the hopper on top, I have had many of the other coffee pots that had carafe's and updating as the yrs went on.. I currently have a Cuisinart ******, and as always, have had no problems and this is year 3 I believe if not 4... I am looking to go back temporarily using this model and see just how good it is but considering my best friend Lori has been using one for over 6 yrs and has been happy, I'm sure I will be too! Price is right!!
We've had this coffee maker for 3 weeks now and it has exceeded our expectations. It appears to be well-constructed and durable. The coffee it makes has been excellent, although we had to adjust down the coffee strength. My spouse and I both enjoy strong coffee, but we have found that when making a full pot, we set the coffee grinder to 10 cups instead of 12 to make it to our taste. I'd recommend this coffee maker to my friends.
