Summary: I fill a coffee maker with the pot it comes with, this has no visible gauge to see how much water is in it, until you pour it in the maker and see it on the side. It leaves almost a cup of coffee in the pot with the lid on.
Summary: Makes a good cup of coffee, mess free, accident free but unfortunately warm free. The carafe is not really thermal and coffee immediately cools down, after coffee is brewed, but if you drink your coffee within twenty minutes, and you don't like piping hot coffee, this is your coffee maker.
Summary: Coffeemaker is fine but the thermal carafe is poorly designed/manufactured. We've gone through 2 different ones and both carafes leaked at the seams. Not only is this annoying and messy, but it also means that the thermal properties are compromised: the coffee does not stay hot for very long.
Cuisinart should be ashamed to sell products like this!

Summary: Remember when "Cuisinart" evoked associations of gourmet quality, great functional design, durability???? Boy are those days long gone. It's been years since I purchased a Cuisinart product that lives up to their former reputation. This coffee maker is another disappointment.
Summary: I had this same model coffee maker for 4 years, until it just stopped working. I liked it so much, I purchased another, this new model with a thermal carafe. It looks the same, buttons the same, and my old glass coffee pot fits. But upon completion of brewing, the new model just shuts off.
Summary: We purchased this coffee maker to replace a Cuisinart Grind and Brew. Too much work to keep the Grind and Brew clean and functioning properly. Also, experience overflow problems. Pros: Coffee is hot and stays hot in the carafe.
Summary: I wanted a coffee maker with a stainless steel carafe and a permanent filter. This seemed to fit the bill and for the first six months it was great. Since then, it will periodically spew coffee all over my kitchen counter instead of into the pot.
Summary: Cuisinart coffee makers are generally awesome, just don't get one with this particular thermal carafe until they design the pour spout better. The thermals have to be tipped nearly upside down to get the last 1/2 cup, which would be no problem except for the fact that the steep angle causes coffee...
Summary: This is a nice coffeemaker but you will be disappointed. It always drips on the counter when pouring. And after a year of once a day use the carafe top will stop accepting coffee from the basket which results in an overflow of coffee onto your counter and floor.
Summary: I've been using this since January, and every morning I swear I'm giving it away and getting a new, different maker Problems: *Doesn't keep coffee very warm. *Poor design engineering, it's about impossible to fill the water reservoir, by filling the pot and pouring it in.
