I had the previous model to this and the grinder broke after a year. I found out that it was common and Cuisinart redesigned with a new Burr grinder which is more durable and grinds the coffee better. Also love that this model has a bin to hold a 1/2 lb of beans. One less step to make coffee every day!! If you are a coffee-person, you will love this machine.
