It took a few days of adjustments to get the desired taste of coffee, but it would S really wonderful. Our Krups Super machine was almost 4 years old, and suddenly broke down., but was covered by our Overstock warranty. We received a full credit minus the warranty cost. That in itself was great! After researching, and trying one other we were unhappy with, we tried the Delonghi. The ONLY issues that need improvements in our opinion is the drip tray which was starting to scratch immediately. For such an expensive machine, it's cheaply manufactured. Also the replacement filters are VERY pricey. Other than that it makes a great cup of coffee with a beautiful layer of crema.
How did I live without a 12cup coffeemaker all these years! Love this coffeemaker. Have been a krups fan for years; this cuisinart replicates my last last Krups - only better!! 12 cup capacity and thermal stainless carafe are the best. Just one wish for change - the fluid measure should be on the front of the machine - a little awkward to read on the side.
