So disappointed. Owned the earlier model of this coffeemaker. Had to get a new one when it wouldn't brew the entire amount of water anymore. Although it's nice to have the full pot brew all at once, and have a piping hot cup of good coffee, the construction of the Cuisinart DGB-650BC leaves much to be desired. The pot gets hung up on the brew basket when you try to remove it from the coffeemaker. (Take the brew basket out first to prevent this.) The brew basket door opens and closes very slowly like it's got a hydraulic system. (Old model sprang open and pushed closed very easily.) The grinder and its top are difficult to get situated properly inside the coffeemaker without a lot of fumbling. And the exterior is a cheap-looking "brushed metal" plastic. Not what I expected from a Cuisinart or for the money I spent. Concerned about how long this one will last because of the inferior construction. Will the little spring on the bottom of the brew basket break off? Will the brew basket door break? Will not buy this model again.
