    A Cuisinart burr grind and brew coffeemaker user for years, had to move to a K-cup coffeemaker because my tummy could no longer handle 5-6 cups of coffee per day. Thought I died and went to heaven when I saw this product. Once again able to savor a single freshly-ground cup of coffee on demand, I am now actually a pleasant person again. And it is great to have the flexibility of using K-cups, all in the same small-footprint unit. Well done, Cuisinart!

    Great alternative for a Keurig. You get way more bank for your buck. You can grind fresh coffee into a Keurig pod like container. Only con is the grinder gets stuck a lot and you have to use the brush they give you to get it through the grinder.

    Messy Machine On Your Countertop

    I wanted to like this machine, but you can't control the amount of coffee it grinds. So I am dumping some of the ground coffee each time I'm using the reusable capsule, or I'm adding additional water to the cup and having to microwave it to warm it back up after the brewing is over. I don't want the coffee as strong, and want to be able to easily vary the strength depending upon which beans I am using. Also, the machine is always messy, with coffee grounds spilling from the grinding process, and from K-cups which frequently leak coffee grounds because the machine does not seal around the puncture needle through the top of the K-cup foil very well. I like a lot of the features of this machine, but it makes a continual mess you will have to clean up.

    I purchased this coffee maker because of its features. I have read a lot of good and bad reviews about it. I am loving it a lot, just having the options of grinding your own coffee and you can tell the difference with taste. Now in the early morning ning hours I use the K cups just to keep it quite and during the day I use the grinder built in. All in all I am happy I could use either way to make my coffee. The good outweighs the bad, my honest opinion.

    Pretty Darn Good Coffee Maker

    Works as designed. I like the fact that you can grind whole beans from your favorite coffee brand or use K-Cups. The tank is a little small, but it’s not a dealbreaker. The only reason it’s not getting a 5 star is because the grinder will have residual grounds that didn’t make it into the filter. Those residual grinds will drop down over time and make a little bit of a mess. Most is contained on the overflow tray on the bottom.

    I have enjoyed using this coffee maker. It brews quickly and the water is hotter than the previous Cuisinart model that I had which was the SS-10. I haven't had any issues with the coffee maker at this point. I only have 2 complaints. My first complaint is that the water tank is too small. I'm finding that I keep having to fill up the tank, and it is harder to access because it is in the back of the machine and can be harder to pull out if it is stored under a cabinet. My second complaint is that I cannot fit tall insulated metal cups under the area where the brewed coffee is coming out. When I place a mug underneath it all fits fine. The fact that it doesn't fit my larger cups is not a problem with the machine per se, but I didn't pay attention to that when I was purchasing the new machine.

    After using this coffee maker and grinder for approximately two months now, I am now leaving my review. The ease of using my own coffee or Keurig cake cups is great. I find that I get a better tasting cup of coffee from grinding my own beans. The only negative that I have on the grinder is that if while you are grinding your beans, if you don’t keep tapping up on the coffee bean basket while it’s grinding coffee to compress the beans when you pull the basket out, it does push some of the ground beans out onto the catcher. So my recommendation is to keep all of the ground coffee beans in the little basket when you pull it out while the grinder is grinding the beans keep tapping up on the basket and when you pull it out, the coffee is in the basket and not falling out when you pull the basket out.

    This product is perfect for households with only 1 coffee drinker. You make one cup of coffee at a time, and the mesh filter obviates the need for paper filters. Plus, you could use either whole beans or K cups. The biggest problem is the excessive spillage of coffee grinds when you remove the capsule away from under the grinder, which is almost entirely because the preset amount of coffee beans to be ground each time is about 5% too much for the capsule. The solution I found is to watch the grinder closely and stop it early by hitting the “grind” button as soon as the capsule is full and before it’s over-filled. It’s the right product that meets my needs, I just wish they paid a bit more attention when designing it.

    I've had several Cuisinart Grind 'n Brew coffee makers and really don't have anything bad to say about any of them. All of them were durable, had plenty of features and were relatively affordable compared to similar products. This one will make approximately 3 cups of coffee before the water tank and bean hopper needs to be refilled. My only two issues with it are that it does take a deliberate press of the buttons to get them to work - it typically won't respond to a quick press of any button. The other issue is that the 10 and 12 ounce coffee settings generate a rather weak, watery cup of coffee. So if you like robust flavor from your coffee don't bother with the 10 or 12 ounce settings. Otherwise, a fantastic coffee maker.
