I was thinking about buying another Krups, since I've had such a coffee maker for several years. But the sale price and the features of this Cuisinart were too good to resist. So far, the machine has performed as advertised, although this morning I noticed that it didn't quite empty the water reservoir, leaving water showing in the glass at the two cup level. The little brew finished alarm is inaudible if you're not standing nearby or have the TV on, say. I cannot tell the difference between the regular and bold brew settings. I grind my own beans, so I don't brew coffee which might be past its prime. The carafe doesn't keep the coffee hot beyond a few minutes; then, it cools to a warm temp. But I like a hot cup of coffee, so the microwave can heat my cup when the carafe cools. There are cheaper pots out there, but this one seems to be built well enough to last for a few years.
