Thumbs down, too bad

caffeine injection burn, buydig.com
28 February 2012
  • Summary: As lukewarm coffee is being poured from carafe into cup, coffee dribbles to side of spout and runs down side of carafe. What an annoying little puddle on your counter! I tried 8 combinations of: rinsing carafe in hot water prior to brewing, using 1-4 cup button, heating water in microwave prior to pouring it in reservoir to slightly warmer than room temperature- all to no avail in an attempt to get hot brewed coffee.
  • Pros: Stylish
  • Cons: Coffee Doesn't Stay Hot, Coffee drips from spout, Hard To Clean

Disappointed

  • Summary: This is a nice looking coffeemaker and brews good tasting coffee. However - it's not nearly hot enough and has to be heated in the microwave before drinking. Also, the design of the carafe makes it very difficult to pour when the carafe is less than half full. I usually have to take the lid off at that point. I finally returned the coffeemaker and will buy another brand or model to replace it.

Nice Looking, not so hot

ingilbertaz, Amazon

  • Summary: I have a Cuisinart glass carafe which is going on 10 yrs old and makes a better cup of coffee. The problem I found with the thermal carafe is that the coffee did not get as hot as the glass carafe and since the lid did not close 100%, the remaining coffee cooled fast. I used it for two weeks and put it away for when two pots needed...back to the 10 yr old pot!

Makes Good Coffee, but I Wouldn't Buy Again

BigJohnSF, Amazon
24 November 2010
  • Summary: The price was reasonable and it produces good-tasting coffee with reasonable speed, which is why I'm keeping it, but... It has multiple annoying features, which is why I'm already visualizing the next coffee maker I will buy (probably a KitchenAid, I'm thinking): 1. Really awkward to put the water in. No brainer, right? 1a. Water level indicator is very hard to read and badly located (on the side). 2. Clock is VERY hard to read.

Good coffee, annoying design flaws

  • Summary: If you find a comparable coffee maker for the same price, better to go with that instead. If a wake-up brewing mode is important to you, definitely look elsewhere.
  • Pros: Makes good coffee, thermal carafe saves energy, reusable coffee filter included
  • Cons: Design flaws mean coffee maker not trustworthy enough to leave unattended, making wake-up mode useless

Looks Nice on the Counter But Makes HORRIBLE Coffee

pamelaleigh, epinions.com
23 July 2009
  • Summary: Less than optimal coffee maker; only saving grace is the functioning timer and thermal carafe.
  • Pros: Thermal carafe accommodates coffee drinkers who get up at different times with an attractive aesthetic.
  • Cons: Weak Coffee, Annoying alarm, Difficult to pour carafe.

Looks 10 Peformance 3

misterchicobig, Ebay

  • Summary: It's a beautiful, sleek, stainless coffeemaker. And it looks good on the kitchen counter. But it depends on the thermal carafe to keep the coffee warm, not the little burner on the bottom which doesn't heat up at all, so the coffee doesn't really stay hot for any period of time. And the carafe is stainless so you don't know exactly how much coffee is left in it.

cuisinart needs to stick to what they know

  • Excerpt: This coffeemaker has needed a calcium cleaning every month, which requires a GALLON of white vinegar
  • Pros: Hmmmm. What can I say? It makes coffee, and it has an upscale brand name.
  • Cons: See the overall review. This little hummer is going back to the store.....
