Since purchasing this food processor last week, we've used it at least 5 times. It gets the job done and saves a ton of time. This is a great buy for the price. Totally worth it!
Okay, at the risk of sounding like a nitpick I just can't rave about this coffee maker. Frame of reference: this was the replacement for a well-loved 10-year-old 10-cup *********** (roughly same price range as the Cuisinart) that was just "getting tired", developing a few small stress cracks/leaks, etc. First and foremost, does this Cuisinart accomplish its task of making decent coffee? Yes. It does. However, I'm no more than "luke warm" on this unit for a number of reasons. If you're the average person who just wants to sling water into a machine and push a button and drink coffee, these reasons probably won't matter much to you. But for the "look, I'm paying around a hundred bucks for a coffee-maker instead of buying a 20-dollar-******* so it better be dang nice" crowd, read on. Here we go: Nitpick #1: There is no "AM" versus "PM" on the time clock. The manual SAYS there's supposed to be, but when setting the time or the intended brew time, the clock just cycles "10:00, 11:00, 12:00, 1:00" but there's no am/pm indicator. This makes it impossible to know if you're setting 10:00am or 10:00pm--making any timed brews useless. THIS WAS THE ENTIRE REASON we bought this coffee-maker--automated morning wakeups with fresh coffee. And we can't use it because of a drop-dead-design-flaw (or, ours is just defective). BIG bummer. Nitpick #2: The carafe. The lid on the carafe is mildly temperamental. We find it VERY easy to accidentally mis-align the lid, so that it's "cross-threaded". It's easy to recognize and correct, but it does mean that about once every 2-3 uses we have to unscrew and re-screw the lid several times to get things aligned. Just an annoying nuisance. Nitpick #3: The fill level indicator. The fill level CANNOT be seen from the front of the coffee maker. This means you must pull out ant TURN the coffee maker 90-degrees left to pour water into it (or, alternately, squeeze your head between the coffee maker and the shelving to its left). REALLY? They couldn't make the fill indicator visible from the front? This is a HUGE downgrade from the removable fill tank the ******* unit had, where we'd just fill it in the sink, snap it in, and click "Brew". Nitpick #4: Pour speed. I'm groggy. It's early morning. I'm moody. I want my first cup of coffee NOW. It's bad enough I couldn't have it waiting for me (See Nitpick #1) but now I'm subjected to a wait..for..it...wait..for...it as this carafe pours incredibly slow. Like, less than 1 oz per second slow. 15 seconds to pour a 15 oz cup of coffee? I've resorted to removing the lid to pour, which solves that problem by just adding steps. Honestly, I would NEVER buy this coffee maker again or recommend it. It just doesn't live up to the "expectation of Cuisinart quality".
Love my KitchenAid 11-cup food processor! The ExactSlice works wonderful! Very easy to operate. Enough power for most tasks, plus it doesn't slide around when working. Easy to take apart and put together again. Washes up easily.
First of all, I did receive this product at no charge in exchange for my honest review and in no way at all does that reflect my personal opinion on this product. Let me start by saying I absolutely love this coffee maker! Brewing time is approximately 11 minutes from start to finish. The coffee was hot and tasted wonderful. I love how wide the spout is on the decanter. When pouring, I don't have to worry about spilled coffee all over my counters and floor. It pours very nicely. The coffee maker is so easy to program and had no difficulty in doing so. It allows you to sneak a cup while brewing and it does automatically shut itself off after two hours. I'm always up way before my husband so after two hours just simply hit the on/off button to turn the unit back on. The clock is bright and easy to see. I can honestly say that there isn't anything at all I dislike about this coffee maker. Would I purchase/recommend it? Absolutely!!
