I ordered these because they specifically say Cuisinart replacement filters. When I received them, they were all in a bag without any indication whatsoever that they were made by Cuisinart. So I am wondering if they are actually authentic replacement filters? I have ordered off brands before and this is how they came, all in a bag with no writing at all. So I haven't used them yet!
Coffee was beginning to taste a little stale and needed to find these filters. Luckily, Overstock had them in stock and for an acceptable price. Product shipped in quoted time and arrived intact. Now I won't need filters for at least another year. Thanks Overstock!
I have very good well water that has already been filtered (whole house) but these filters do make a difference in the acidic taste of the coffee. My Cuisinart coffee maker is used every day and when the time comes, I will replace it with another. These filters are rather pricey, particularly if you change them as often as the manual recommends. Ordering them from Overstock saves me money and the convenience of not having to go look for them in a store and they look and function as-well-as the original equipment from Cuisinart. Beware, one set of 12 will last you over a year!
Can't tell you now many times I did the self-cleaning thing when the light 'said' it was time. I don't use the coffee maker but a couple of times a week, so I couldn't understand why it kept happening. Little did I know that it was the filter that was the issue. Once I changed it, no more light AND better tasting coffee!.
I bought a new Cuisinart Coffee Maker and looked at the information that came with the equipment in the box, and it surprised me how expensive the replacement filters were, so I did a search on the web and found them much cheaper at Overstock.com, plus FREE SHIPPING!
