Grind, brew and pour up to 12 cups of coffee with ease using this Cuisinart automatic coffeemaker. The coffeemaker has three settings to allow you to choose the strength of your coffee, and the brew-pause function lets you drink as it creates....more
As I reviewed the negative comments, I judged that all were correctable. The "Burr" grinder is the most exacting and is very size accurate. The programing is accurate and efficient. I have been operating mine every day for over a year and one half without any breaks. I do weekly maintenance and cleaning. This is one of the good/better products.

I make coffee at least once daily, and prefer to grind my own beans. I'm replacing another brand comparable in price that did not have the grinding feature. I have other coffee grinders, but wanted a burr grinder. So, when I whacked the bottom out of the glass carafe of the last coffee maker, I just decided to scrap it and go for this one. Since it is refurbished, I also bought the extra warranty, just in case. The thermal carafe is a major plus. Now, instead of running back to the kitchen to freshen a cup, I take it all to the den and sit in front of the fireplace with consistently hot coffee. This is the best of all worlds.
I would have given it a 5, but it is rather unwieldy to assemble each evening, the print on the machine itself is almost microscopic plus the stainless steel carafe is extremely well built, and thus very heavy.
All in all this is an exceptional buy.
Right off the bat I will say that I like this coffee maker. I love having a grind and brew all-in-one function, and there are not many choices on the market. Furthermore, the strong setting really does make strong coffee, which is extremely important to us. Finally, the carafe really does keep the coffee warm for a long time.
Here are some important tips for those of you considering a purchase or for those who have recently purchased this item:
1. DON'T PUT THE GRIND SETTING OVER #8!!!!! If the grounds are too light and fine they will clog up the grind shoot constantly.
2. I found the diagram really confusing as to where the grind shoot is, and at first confused it with the bean collector. Once the bean repository is removed the grind shoot is at the front of the machine, under the bean repository, and behind a trap door. One must depress the lever and open the door to see where the beans travel from the grinder into the filter.
3. Don't forget to empty the filter basket. All of our troubles started then. The machine worked flawlessly until I neglected to empty the basket one day. Then the grind shoot clogged and I couldn't find it right away. I actually thought the unit was broken and almost returned it when we did, in the end, figure it out. Further stress and problems ensued until we figured out the optimal grind setting (see #1).
So if you are like me, having skipped the keurig revolution, and you just love grinding your own fresh beans, than this is a great machine to consider.
Bought for wife who had previous cuisinart grind and brew coffee maker that died after 7years of use. This one was an upgraded model and when arrived was in new condition. Wife loves it and says coffee taste great, worth the purchase and saved a lot of money purchasing from overstock and recommend .

If you have never had really fresh, I mean ground just a it perks, you might want to try it. It is the best coffee ever. This coffee maker was purchased specifically for our 5th wheel, because we are so spoiled with the one we have at home we had to get another one to use while we camp. Cuisinart makes wonderful coffeemakers, and I don't believe I will ever go back to regular brewed coffee. Grind and Brew is the only way to drink coffee.

I purchased this item 2/14/2014 and only used it for weekend family breakfast time. After 90 days the grinder started to act up and now exactly 6 months later it has died. I have a phone number to contact Cuisinart Customer Service Monday morning #### to discuss the item under manufacture warranty. It's a coffee maker, and it was supposed to be the best. I would suggest you purchase the extra warranty for the coffee maker.
This coffee maker makes a GREAT cup of coffee. Unfortunately - it takes going through a couple of tries to get one that works well with no flaws. This particular coffee pot has a leak at the top seal - so will need to be returned for another one that's built better.
But it's worth the trouble to get one that works.
Ordered this as a replacement after our previous Cusinart Grind & Brew finally stopped working after 5 years. This model is an upgrade and improvement from the previous model. The burr grinder is a big plus, as is the "coffee strength" feature. We've had this model about a month, and so far we love it and find it to be a step above the old model. We ordered the refurbished model from Overstock and it looks brand new-- honestly, you can't even tell it is refurbished. The only glitch was that no mesh filter basket was included, but we use paper filters anyway, so we would have just tossed the mesh filter or stashed it in a cabinet. No big deal, and overall we're happy with our new coffee maker.
