      Very Good Coffee Maker

      Posted
      spritedaway

      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.

      great coffee maker

      Ok what's not great is the lid, it snaps on to the carafe. I don't know how long the lid will be able to snap on and off before wearing out plus its a pain every time you want to fill it up or rinse it out, a hinged lid would be nice, albeit not much of a problem. Well with that said it does pour nice with no dripping. I use my sink faucet which extends from the holder to fill the reservoir so I have no problem there. Set up is straight forward if you know how to set an alarm clock this is easier I didn't even look at the directions to set it, just turn the knob to clock and set, turn the knob to prog. and set your delay. There is an hour and a minute button to change the time. Nice thing about this is the up to 4 hour turn off delay, many coffee makers only have a 2 hour turn off. Like other reviewers have said the clock is not back lit, if I can't see it I turn a light on!!! Who sets the clock or delay time in the dark, I have two other lighted clocks in my kitchen (on the stove and microwave# so not seeing the coffee pot clock in the dark doesn't bother me. So over all it makes a 12 cup pot in about 10 minutes. It has a 1-4 cup mode as well, and there is a setting saver if the power goes out or gets unplugged it remembers the time and settings. The only feature it doesn't have is a reminder to replace the water filter, it does say to replace every 60 days or 60 uses. Also, it uses the cone shape filters, it also has the reusable screen filter. Someone said it makes a weak pot of coffee, the filter will hold up to 15 table spoons of coffee grounds, I use 6 for a 12 cup pot I don't know how it could make a weak cup myself. As of this writing I have had it for almost 2 months making 1 full pot a day, so far so good, I hope it lasts. This is replacing the two Frigidaire's that burned out in under a year #which also made a good cup of coffee), and thanks to BB for exchanging each one and then to this one.

      Makes good coffee!

      Posted

      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. Dislikes: 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. Likes: 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.

      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.

      Another Cuisinart

      Posted
      steve1942

      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.

      Happy so far - good coffee maker

      Makes good coffee fairly quickly. Seems sturdy & well made, and no problems so far. What we like: -- Uses cone filters -- Small footprint on countertop -- Flip top to access filter and water storage (although if you have low cabinets, this might be an issue for you, but we like it) Minor nuisances: -- The "beep" to signal it's finished brewing (and that it's shutting off after about 2 hours). Others have commented that it's a bit loud, which it is, but it isn't a deal breaker for us. -- Automatic shut-off after about 2 hours. There's no way to stop the auto shut-off, so if you're like me and you drink your coffee throughout the morning, you'll find you need to heat up your cup of joe in the microwave after a couple of hours. Again, a nuisance, but not a deal breaker.

      Not that great design wise

      Posted
      MC123

      First I think all coffer makers should use a standard carafe so do not have to but that special one, by the time the overcharge from the manufacturer just buy a new unit. the carafe on this one is not designed well last bit of liquid does not flow out. The top lid does not go back far enough hard to pour water into unit. The biggest complaint, well with any electronics today, as a electronics design engineer and cheap as electronics is no excuse to ever, ever, not have programmed settings saved after power is removed, ever! Hope these manufacturers are listing to that last point!

      Very happy to have my 2nd Cusinart coffee maker! Had same model in black for over 5 years. It made great cooffee, 1-2 pots every day,kept it hot, and never a problem. Then 1 morning, it quit, retired like I did. To save money, I bought a much cheaper coffee maker, we both disliked it; tried another brand, same dislikes. Was very happy to buy this white Cusinart coffee maker at Best Buy, and it was on sale! My husband and I and both happy with this one! Just wish I hadn't wasted money on 2 inferior brand units
