    Disappointing

    Despite its hefty price, there is no real improvement over my Keurig and a very similar Cuisinart pot coffee maker (both died after a year and a half). Here's the "scoop" (sorry). Pros: Space saving compared to two separate units. Visually appealing. Cons: Hard to fill reservoir - can't get the last bit of water out of the carafe. Coffee splatters from the single cup side when using normal mugs. Bright lights. No hinged lid on carafe. It seems like they rushed to get this combo unit to market and didn't try to improve the user experience at all.

    Super Hot Coffee but leaks

    It brews really hot coffee, but I didn't like that after brewing any amount of cups on the pot, when you open the top lid it leaks water on the back of the coffeemaker. It seems it's due to the water condensation from the water steam while brewing. I had the Hamilton Beach DualBrew and never had a problem, but it was time to upgrade.

    The combination was a great idea for us as we have a regular pot of coffee in the morning but drink coffee or tea or hot chocolate throughout the day so the single side gets a wotkout. However, it is difficult to get the water into the pot side without making a water mess! The amount of water the pod side is about 3 cups and we are constantly refilling. I’m ready to go back to just a kuerig!

    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.

    Coffee Pot and Pods

    Like the idea of having one coffee maker that does both pot and pods. My only disappointment is the pod system sprays and spits in every direction as it fills the cup. Makes a mess! I have had pod coffee pots before that never did this.

    The carafe brew is slow, the carafe spills over when filling the reservoir, the single cup side splatters because the cup rest isn't adjustable. If the caraffe reservoir was removable it would be very helpful.

    Too high priced for the quality level of item.

    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.

    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.

    Not Cuisinart's best

    Grounds overflow with full 12 cup carafe, ok at 10. Water reservoir for carafe is not convenient. Reservoir for k-cups is handy. Not their best product.

    Your average coffee maker. Not a big fan of the lid on the pot and how it snaps on... good but not impressive

    They need to work on why it 'spits' the liquid out
