Makes good coffee!

I researched coffee makers and narrowed it down to 5 and this one was #3. I purchased this one because my first two choices were not available at Best Buy. I only have a couple of complaints and they are really not that sugnifficant of an issue.
1. The clock is not illuminated, which makes it hard to read.
2. When you open the lid, to pour in the water, you have to pull the unit out toward the edge of the counter because it's to tall to fit under the cabinet.
3. I leave the lid open to let the unit dry out inside. For some reason a lot of moisture accumulates.
4. You have to order the water filters in a two year supply (12 filters) at a cost of $34.95 + shipping & tax which comes to more than half the cost of the unit itself!
5. The cord is to short which limits the location you can put the coffee maker.
6. The lid seem flimsy, whould be nicer if it were made of a little thicker plastic.
1. Makes 12 cups of coffee instead of the standard 10 cups that most coffee makers make.
2. Ease of pouring in the water, as long as you hook the lip of the carafe on the edge of the unit it pours in easely.
3. You can control the length of time the coffee stays warm, after brewing.

best purchase ever !!!!
Posted by: bug12 from: somewhere in NJ on
When I say that this is the best coffee maker I have EVER had, I mean it. Sets up easy the first time. Easy to pour water in. Goldtone filter works great. Not even one drop falls when you use the pour and pause feature. No steam comes out of top when brewing. Carafe is awesome. I would pay the replacement price if it breaks.
And the best of all, GREAT COFFEE.

Replaced another Cuisinart that died after 5 years. This model has a different look but operates in a identical manner. The price for this maker is very reasonable as it does everything but grind beans and/or make expresso. It functions as a typical coffeemaker and provides a good tasting cup of coffee. It also brews 12 cups which is beneficial for a family of coffee drinkers. The only shortcoming , and this was true of its predecessor, is that filling it with water is a little difficult. It has two flaws, first the lid doesn't open far enough to provide easy access to the filling chamber. Secondly, the filling chamber itself is located at the rear of the top, near the hinged lid location. Fortunately, the carafe doesn't leak and is used to fill the chamber. With a little care and in a lighted room, the pot can be filled without spilling any water. I've noticed that this problem exists on many coffeemakers, it's surprising that these manufacturers haven't eliminated it.

Time will tell, but so far I love this coffee maker. Many complain that it is hard to pour the water into this machine. I am 62 with tremors and can still pour in the water without spilling.

Very Good Coffee Maker
Posted by: spritedaway from: on
I did a lot of research before making a purchase to replace my existing coffee maker that was dying.
Very Hot Coffee was the number one requirement. I typically take my coffee and stick it in the microwave as I like it piping hot. My previous maker was beginning to fail to delivery on this.
Glad to say this coffee maker delivers whether it's just brewed or being sitting for an hour or so. It is very hot....perhaps too hot for some.
I wanted a maker that used cone shaped filter like my previous maker as I think this improves the taste.
The lid on the carafe is a little unusual as it's like no other I've seen before. Takes a little practice to figure out how to remove and snap back on. The benefit is that the lid will not come off as your are pouring hot coffee. You just need to pull the lid from the handle side to remove....and snap it back in place by pushing down near the top of the handle. At first I was thinking the lid was defective but once you figure it out it's easy to remove and put back on.
Emits a beeping noise when it's finished brewing which is nice. Easy to program to brew a fresh pot when you wake up.
It's not too large and is very nice looking. The cord is rather short, so you need access to a fairly close outlet, which I imagine is a safety issue.
Overall, I would certainly purchase again. Notice that I can easily get a cheap replacement carafe from Cuisinart should I ever need to.
So if you like your coffee VERY HOT this may be the one for you.

Have only had it a month, but so far so good (knock on wood).
Really makes a good brew, is easy to use, price is right and is a nice looking coffee maker; goes well with dark appliances & counter-top.
The only things I really find off with this c-maker are:
1) Adding water; the opening is pretty small, so you have to have good aim and a steady hand.
2) The beeping at the end of the brew. It's rather annoying, I like the idea of the notification, but wish you could at least adjust the volume of the beep.

Love it, love it, love it!

Best coffeemaker we've ever had. The coffeemaker is an attractive addition to our kitchen counter, and the coffee tastes delicious. While I don't know if it actually can brew a pot of coffee in 5-6 minutes, it is fast. Perhaps the most important feature for us is that the carafe is the first one that I have ever had that actually, really and truly does NOT drip. Further, the brew-pause feature does not leak any coffee when I pull the carafe out. Looks good, works well. brews great.

It just works
Posted by: dogn from: south bend, IN on
We have hard water, and had a fairly new Mr. Coffee maker that just sputtered and steamed all the time, even after i cleaned it multiple times and disassembled it and cleaned out the little check valve thingy that some online sites blamed for the problem.
We bought this Cuisinart after doing our research and seeing it's good reviews and love it. It is quiet, fast, and JUST WORKS the way a coffee maker should. I think it's a much superior design and better engineered (and I'm an engineer)! It was about 3 times the price, but worth it! Only had it a few weeks, but so far we are very pleased. Brews 12 cups in less than 10 min, and it tastes great every time. Don't use any of the other fancy settings, but like that it has an indicator to tell when it needs cleaning, and the manual suggests it is smart enough to show if your cleaning did the job or not... says to repeat cleaning if indicator light doesn't go off. A great coffee maker for folks with hard water.

The look and feel of this coffemaker is what I expected from Cuisinart. The coffee tastes great.
