Loved my old Cuisinart Brew Central and had to replace after 7 or so years. Purchased @ a home store only to find it was now housed in silver plastic (test using a refrigerator magnet, or just tap the thing). Called Cuisinart and was told they are going to all silver plastic (they have another name for it). Hoped this refurbished would be the "old guard" and from the description, I expected the older type, but is the new plastic finish. Fortunately, Overstock refunded promptly, and since I was "loyal customer", they refunded the return shipping charge (due to the incorrect description, I was ready to put up a battle for that charge; happily I did not have to). Miss my old stainless steel coffee maker and I'm sad that Cuisinart no longer makes products to match my stainless steel appliances.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Incorrectly described: site DID say "stainless" but it is silver plastic
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Cannot comment on the inner workings. Outside; cheaply constructed
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Incorrect - maybe it has changed but when I purchased, it said "stainless" housing; it is not
- Would you recommend this to a friend? No
