    The only reason I didn't give 5, water chamber for carafe side not easiest to fill, given it's dual capability which is wonderful

    Love the option of a full pot or single cup. I'm still struggling with the splattering of water in the single cup, I thought it would be a better steady stream.

    Very hard to put water into and coffee does not get hot enough. We returned the coffee pot and purchased a higher quality of a different brand, even though it was a little more money.

    So far we love our coffeemaker, it's fast and easy to operate. Filling the water for the carafe side is a little tight, the cup side is easier to fill

    This was a bad purchase. The coffee maker made a loude vibrating noise and when water came out of the single serve side that water splashed out of the cup all over the counter. So we returned and got our money back.

    I was really excited when I saw this product, but I wish I would have waited for the next incarnation. Its hard to pour the water into the container, and I have had pods explode when using the single-serve function which makes a big mess. Also, I wish it had a metal carafe.

    We like every thing about it but filling the large water holding take. It is hard to get to w the coffee pot and water spills and splashes. A pull up extendable funnel would help

    Great coffee maker and the best of both worlds. I will say it is better as a drip coffee kier though than a single cups device. It doesn't hold enough water on the single cup side for more than two small cups.

    Coffee maker leaks from the bottom, also as it is brewing single cups the nozzle sprays water in all directions. Luckily no one got burnt. Item Was retuned after 2 weeks of use.

    Have the Cuisenart K-Cup brewer at home and bought this for our Florida home. Like the idea it was two in one. Only downsides are that the water tank is small and that the coffee seems to splash when it goes into the cup

    We have always owened a Cuisinart coffee pot. No brand makes better coffee. Now we can get rid of the stand alone Keurig. The only slight issue is the water splashes more using the pod side since it has a longer drop it seems.

    Worst Cuisinart product we ever owned

    Opening to water tank very small making it very difficult to fill without getting water all over the strainer basket. The water reservoir for the single cup brewer is small requiring frequent refilling as compared to other brands. The coffee pod receptacle requires that the user firmly insert the pod all the way down prior to closing or the machine will tear off the top of the pod getting coffee grounds everywhere. These drastic differences from other brewers require the user to make conscious deliberate actions when operating this machine.

    The unit is massive. It barely fits under my cabinets. To move it out on to the counter you have to unplug the very short cord. Extremely hard to fill the water tank.

    This replaced our last Cuisinart. Love the pod option on the side. My only complaint keeping it from 5 Stars is the manner in which you have to fill the water. If using the coffee pot to pour the water in, the angle becomes very difficult, and you end up getting water down the back of the device.

    Really Like Integrated K-cup Brewer

    Was concerned about other reviews about issues with messy overflows. Been using it a month now with no problems. We do make sure the K-cups are fully seated. I like the bold brew setting. Only complaint is that it is difficult to completely empty the carafe of water as the coffee maker lid gets in the way

    K-Cup side blows tops off cups-can't recommend

    This machine is a real disappointment. The K-Cup side consistently forces too much water and too high a flow into the cup, separating the lid from the cup body and therefore washing coffee grounds all over the inside of the holder and into the coffee cup below. We are using Keurig brand cups plus others and we get the same results. The drip side is passable but pouring water into the tank there takes a steady hand and someone rather tall as the opening is toward the back and is relatively small. A real disappointment from an engineering standpoint and therefore not worth the price.

    Great combination brewer !

    This is a really great brewer, Makes full pots or single serve. Single serve can be made with K-cups of your own favorite grind. Adding water to the single serve and full reservoirs is a little tricky when brewer is located under overhead cabinets. But does not detract from the overall performance of the unit. Makes great tasting hot coffee quickly. Have used the unit for one month and have not yet had to "descale" the unit. The Ninja unit we had previously required descaling every TWO days. That's why we junked it a brought this Cuisinart. Couldn't be more pleased !

    I've been using this coffee maker for only a few weeks and am not entirely satisfied with it. The 12 cup brewer is fine for the most part. The water reservoir is in the back which causes a bit of a mess when refilling the water. It also beeps 5 times when it's done brewing, which is very annoying early in the morning and cannot be turned off. The single cup side is the issue I've. I've tried all different pods, I've made sure the white arrows line up, I've cleaned it to make sure there were no clogs and it still overflows the coffee grinds. It comes out the top and the bottom filling my cup full of grinds and getting all over my counter. Making it very hard to clean up. No one should be dealing with these issues especially for the price.
