    Excellent all-in-one coffee maker

    This coffee maker was exactly what I wanted. It brews perfect hot coffee from fresh ground beans in minutes. The machine is easy to use and clean.

    Don't Do it!

    Posted .

    Unless you like being awoken by the sound of a jet aircraft in your kitchen, weak coffee, and coffee grounds flung all over your kitchen. Stay away from this horrible device. Not sure where they went wrong with the design as I previously owned one of these a few years back and loved it. This one was a disaster. The grinder is loud enough to wake the dead. (on the plus side, you won't need to set an alarm anymore) It flings coffee grounds out of the machine from who knows where, and there are grounds in the carafe and your morning coffee. The brew strength is so weak, and has the color of light brown water with no way to increase the strength. The machine shuts off immediately when finished brewing, but you do get this lovely insulated carafe that supposedly will keep your coffee hot for hours. It doesn't. Not only that, you can't see how much coffee is left in it unless you remove the lid. Save yourself the time and trouble and search for something else. You can grind your own beans with a lot less mess and still get that fresh ground and brewed taste you seek. I replaced it with the Cuisinart Model: DCC-3200.

    Had the glass carafe version, then...

    ...we accidentally had it flood itself by setting the timer to brew... to a missing carafe. Oops. Our usual issue is the coffee getting cold rather quickly in the Nevada winter, so we went for this model with the stainless thermal carafe as our replacement. Sure, we had to trade 12 cup capacity for 10, but I do feel that trade-off was worth it long term. You can turn it on, take a quick shower, and it'll still be hot when you get back to it. And it's always nice to be able to grind your own beans, too. I use the grinder, the family doesn't like it (oh well, more for me!) Though I wish there was a way to prevent the water vapor from getting up into the grinding chamber, even when it's empty. The resulting condensation makes the grounds stick to the chamber, which takes just a little more effort to clean out before the next pot can be made. That's the only con I can think of for this item. Other than that, built sturdily, has a carbon filter insert in the reservoir to help cleanse the water that brews. Do recommend replacing that little filter at least every 3 months if you use it more than once a day, 7 days a week. (I believe you can order the filters on Best Buy; The physical stores MIGHT stock them too, but don't quote me on that.)

    I purchased this for my mother for Christmas as her current coffee maker took anywhere from 25 minutes to an hour to brew a pot of coffee. I went with the Cuisinart brand as her current one was the same brand just almost 20 years old. She loves that she can grind fresh beans or just add normal grounds and then set it to whenever she wants to wake up and have fresh coffee ready. She especially loves the thermal carafe. She lives alone for the most part and enjoys drinking coffee throughout the day and this allows her to brew one pot a day and drink it throughout the morning with out reheating or brewing a new pot. She was so excited she unpacked it and brewed a pot as soon as she got home.

    Great machine, great cup of coffee

    Posted .

    After reading the mix of positive and awful reviews on this product before buying, I was very hesitant when I purchased and prepared for the possibility that I might have to return it. After three weeks, I'm very pleased with the machine in every way. I found customers who complained about the difficulty in cleaning were FAR overstating the problem - the pieces that need to be cleaned daily are easily removed and are all washable, so taking them out, rinsing them under running water and then setting them aside to dry takes less than 60 seconds. Put them back, add beans and you're ready for the next day. Very easy! I've also not found any problems with leaking or dripping, neither during brewing nor pouring, and the caraffe keeps the coffee steaming for hours, even if I don't "prime" it before brewing by running hot water through it as the manual suggests. I've been very impressed with the difference in flavor of the coffee, even as opposed to grinding the beans the night before and putting them in a programmable coffee maker. The flavor is outstanding and the machine, so far, has proven to be great and very easy to maintain.

    Probably fine, just not a fit for me.

    As the summary states, it's probably a good enough coffee maker for most people, depending upon what features you want... I returned it after a couple of uses because I found that the coffee was not strong enough for my taste, in combination with not being able to do much about it. There is no strength selector on this model, which might brew slower for a darker brew, or a grind time selector, to make the grinded beans finer, so I found those options in another model. I also decided that I'd like to get one with the hopper, so that the beans don't need to be loaded each time. Note that I also tried increasing the amount of beans that I put into the grinder, but there is a limited capacity, and it still was not enough when maxed out.

    Next best thing to a Keurig

    Cuisinart is a well-recognized and extremely dependable brand. Once I made the adjustment from the convenience of the K-Cup to brewing a pot of coffee, I am pleased with the product. The price was reasonable, too. I purchased the model with the coffee grinder on the recommendation of another customer who had one. However, I do not use it because it is extremely noisy -- sounds like a jet engine about to take off -- so I grind my own coffee again. I am looking forward to this product outlasting Keurig's (which lasts a couple of years at best and is twice as expensive).

    NEW: Improved Design

    |

    Posted .

    I have had two (2) prior Cuisinart - Grind & Brew 10-Cup Automatic Coffeemakers. They both lasted about seven years total after one was replaced by warranty. This item has improved by beefing up some of the parts with newly designed shaped parts. Also the new insulated thermal carafe does not require a burner as did the older models. The coffeemaker can then turn off when the last drop is processed and no worry about over cooking or leaving home before turning off the burner. The carafe by design pours slowly as it is baffled to keep in heat longer. You can simply remove top and pour faster if desired. Also it is a good idea to fill the craft with hot tap water to preheat the thermos. True there is a number of parts to rinse and clean between pots but the resulting quality of the finished product outweigh the time spent. This product is the best of its kind for the price that I have found.

    Nice but with flaws

    Posted .

    This does brew coffee quickly and the thermal carafe keeps it hot for hours. But certainly flaws in the design making it not worth the money. The grinder, hidden nicely inside the machine can be a disaster to both use and keep clean. It will grind the beans ok (so far), but deposits them to one side in the basket. So full flavor brewing isn’t possible unless you manually level out the ground beans first before brewing. If you don’t, the coffee is not only weaker, but creates a mess of grounds out of the basket near the end of the brew cycle. Don’t attempt to make two pots of coffee in a row. It can’t be done unless you totally break down the grinder and basket and give it a complete cleaning first. Unless you don’t mind chewing on some grounds while drinking your coffee. I should have purchased another Capresso brand like the one I had for the ten years before

    I love that this has a grinder inside the coffee pot. Add your beans, and water, press on and wallah....you have a delicious cup of coffee in no time at all. The only thing that sucks is the clean up. They recommend washing out the grinder every time you use it. Of course you have to wash out the filter. And then you still have to rinse out the coffee pot itself. I am happy I switched out my pod coffee maker for this one. It makes a delicious cup of coffee.

    Great Coffe Pot

    I love how I can either grind fresh beans or use coffee that's already ground from the store also I don't have to worry about the coffee getting old or getting cold. After the coffee is finished dripping the pot turns itself off and the insulated carafe keeps the coffee hot and fresh! I love my Cuisinart Grind and Brew I only wish it was a 12 cup, but they didn't offer one where I purchased this pot.

    Fresh coffee each time

    Owned for 1 year when reviewed.

    I wish I can put more beans to grind each time I brew. One full cup of beans is enough only for 4 cups. It serves its purpose for me and my husband in one brewing. But not if we need more cups then we have to clean up first and do the whole process again.

    Second Purchase of same coffeemaker

    I had the first one for at least 4 years..it's failure was my fault. First I purchased a new fancier Mr Coffee unit from another retailer. After getting it home and going through all the cleaning and setup the clock/time unit would not function. I had to pack it back up and return it to the store. I then went to Best Buy and purchased the same Cuisinart I had before. Plug and play..It was off and running. The only negative is the stainless finish has changed from the first. Coarse and displays fingerprints. Difficult to keep clean.

    Great coffee - a lot of cleaning!

    The coffee is great, the thermal pot keeps it warm for hours. The only reason I took off one star is there are 6 pieces to clean between each pot! You have to clean the carafe, lid, basket, basket lid, grinder, and grinder lid each time. Kind of tedious.

    Great Coffeemaker - Better than K-cups

    I have one at my other house so when I saw this on deal of the day I jumped. Fill it up. add Beans. It grinds them and then brews a pot. You can put in a full pots worth of beans or less for smaller pots. The stainless steel carafe keeps the coffe hot without overheating it like glass carafes. You can use standard filters or the included metal filter. I recommend hand washing the pot and the filter basket and grinder. I use a combination of beans and preground coffee to make the flavor I like.

    So Far So...

    Good. I've had it for about a week. If anyone is wondering is the taste is that much better to have the coffee beans ground right before brewing, it is. If you love coffee then you will definitely enjoy the fresh tasting coffee this machine makes.

    It's great to have the fresh coffee in the morning. It is a lot of pieces to clean but I think well worth it for the convenience. It is a bit loud though. I live in an apartment and am self-conscious about using it too early.

    This is very good and functional little coffee maker. It has all the features I was looking for, except for one. I would have liked a separate removable compartment for water like I have had with other coffee makers. It's easier and more sanitary for cleaning purposes. Other than that it's great!

    The coffee tastes very nice! The only down side is that the nightly set up time takes an extra couple of minutes or so (to wipe out the coffee bean grinder due to moist ground accumulation).

    I do love the coffee maker but have 2 things that kept me from giving it an excellent rating. First, I wish it had a cone filter instead of a flat bottom one, but love that it is a reusable filter. Second, cleaning the coffeemaker is a bit tricky but definitely worth it with the grinder and maker in one, plus programmable auto start! All in all makes my morning a lot happier!
