Summary: This maker makes excellent coffee. It has been discontinued by Cuisinart. Cuisinart needs to keep a simple quality no timer coffee maker like this in their product lineup. I searched for a coffee maker that had NO programmable timer which I have no use for, that uses #4 cone filters, and has a good reputation. This is it. I would rate this between Good and Excellent, taking off for the way the filter holder works.
more compact, no pre-filters, 1-4 setting; discontinued
12 April 2010
Summary: fits better under cabinets on counter, even to fill basket. No purification filters to buy. Has 1-4 cup lower heat setting. Similar to old Braun model -- pumps just as fast. Both seem discontinued. Smaller capacity may work better with few cups -- takes standard #4 cone filter compared to odd size mini-units. Permanent filters not the best -- requires soap cleaning to remove oil build up, and paper absorbs oils to keep out of brew.
Summary: I love this coffee maker. Brews really fast and can pour a cup without wait. You can set it to your likes of coffee strong or weaker. Make only 4 cups or 10 either way it is so easy with this maker. Great tasting coffee every time. Easy to clean as well.
Summary: MAKES GREAT COFFEE! VERY CONTEMPORARY LOOK! EASY TO CLEAN! EASY TO USE! I LOVE THIS COFFEE MAKER--IT'S MUCH BETTER AND MAKES BETTER COFFEE THAN MY PREVIOUS MR. COFFEE OR ANY OTHER COFFEE MAKER I HAVE OWNED!
