    • Great coffee maker
      Verified Purchase

      I have had this maker for about a year now and it is still like new. We have never had a problem with it. The hot water option is great for tea and hot cocoa lovers. I use both sides almost daily. The hot water side can hold about three decent size coffee mugs of water. Both the coffee and and hot water side get really hot. It is nice that you have the option to adjust the temperature for the coffee (not the water feature). I tried the highest setting at first and is was way to hot. If you have coffee, tea, and cocoa drinkers in your house like I do, then you'll love this machine!

    • Good Coffee, hot water maker tastes plastic
      Verified Purchase

      Thought the hot water feature would be great for the kids but it takes a long time and tastes like plastic. Also, any hot water left over you have to drain out a discharge tube in the rear. Kind of a PIA. Coffee side works great so no complaints there. Pushes the water quickly at the end so we've end up with grounds in the pot when making a full pot. Wish we would have sprung for the bean grinder option instead.

    • Third one we have purchased
      Verified Purchase

      Received Nov. 8th-this is at least the third one we have had. Seldom lasts longer than the 3 year warranty but coffee is always tasty and it is great on days when hot tea will be the "drink of the day". Yes, will probably purchase another when this goes to the great coffee tree in the sky. At least this newest model does not have the horribly loud beeps the others had.

    • Cuisinart Programmable Coffeemaker with Hot Water
      Verified Purchase

      I recently purchased this to replace an old 12 cup Mr. Coffee. What caught my interest was the hot water dispenser. It makes it so much easier to make one cup of tea. I have also noticed a huge difference in the way my coffee tastes. I feel that it is smoother and never bitter. No more coffee grains in the bottom of the pot either. I would highly recommend it to every one that is a coffee and tea drinker.

    • Excellent Coffee
      Verified Purchase

      Well worth the money. The coffee brews fast as does the hot water system. The variable heat plate lets me make coffee for myself and my husband (who wakes up 1 hr after me) without it tasting burnt. The hot water system is an added bonus as our son and I both enjoy hot chocolate while my husband makes tea. We've already taken advantage of making Cup of Soup with it being cold season now. This is a fabulous addition to any kitchen as it takes the place of multiple gadgets and manages to be stylish. The carafe is easy to clean (dishwasher safe) and DOES NOT DRIP! The water reservoir is easy to view on the side of the machine unlike the regular version of the coffee maker without the hot water system (you have to peer inside the water tank). Exactly what we needed. A+

    • WE LOVE THIS!
      Verified Purchase

      So far so good, we love this coffee maker! My husband drinks about 4 cups of tea a day so this is perfect for him! My coffee definitly tastes less bitter than it did with my old cheaper maker. I like the carbon water insert filters, I think that does help with the taste of the water. The area you pour the water into for the "hot water" section is large and convient however the area you pour the water into for the cofee maker is much smaller and takes a little more focus... But it's worth it for us. The water heats up very quickly as well. I find myself refilling the water side more frequently than I anticipated though, it seems to hold enough water for about 3 cups of tea. We use it alot! The fill water light, lights up when it's low on water, which is nice. If you don't use hot water or drink beverages other than coffee, I would NOT recommend this. This is designed for people who drink other hot beverages on a "regular basis". If you are primarily a cofee drinker, get a regular pot. This unit is a bit larger than a regular coffee maker, so it does take up a little more space. I have not used the hot water for oatmeal or grits yet, but I'm looking forward to trying that out. Overall GREAT buy... we love it, looks stylish, great performance, would buy again!

    • Drink fast

      You better be there with your cup because as soon as it's done brewing, the burner shuts off and there is NO reheat function.

    • Nice system, but could be better.
      Verified Purchase

      My complaints about this product are that the amount of space given for you to pour in water on the top to brew coffee is very small which makes it easy to spill your water. Also, the reservoir for the hot water system sometimes drips water, making a mess on the counter.

      Worked well but was too tall for my cabinet area. Also does not have a way to see how much water you have in pot on outside of pot. If you are short and can't see down into pot that is inconvenient. Loved the hot water feature!

    • Q:

      "how do u clean when light flashes blue?"

      • A:

        If the Clean light begins to flash when the Coffeemaker is turned on, it is telling you that the calcium buildup is interfering with the functioning of your Coffeemaker and the flavor of your coffee. To clean, fill the water reservoir to capacity with a mixture of ¹⁄³ white vinegar and ²⁄³ water. Press the Clean button. When the Clean light glows, turn the Coffeemaker on by pressing the On/Off button. The Clean light will shine steadily. The Coffeemaker is now in clean mode. One cycle should be sufficient to adequately clean the Coffeemaker. When the cycle is completed and the five beeps sound, the Coffeemaker will shut off. Turn the Coffeemaker on to see if the Clean light continues to flash. If it does, turn it off and then repeat the cleaning procedure with a fresh solution of vinegar and water. If the Clean light no longer flashes, turn the Coffeemaker off and then run one cycle of fresh cold water through the unit before using the unit again to brew coffee.

    • Q:

      "because of pause brew button, how can i brew into a travel mug."

      • A:

        You would just place the travel mug where you would fill your regular cup of coffee.

      "Country manufactured in?"
