Excerpt: Love it, buying another to keep in storage when this one wears out. Was this review helpful?
Pros: This is our 4th Cuisenart coffee maker. Have used the 12 cup version for yrs until I couldn't find it any longer. Love the design of this new pot, don't have to open top to pour. Love how they moved the controls to the top of the machine where they are easier to see. Using the programming feature is a breeze due to the light that shows you're good to go instead of the small icon that was hard to read in clock window.
Cons: The water resevoir takes some accuracy to pour into but definitely not a deal breaker.
Summary: Spent hours researching this purchase and couldn't be happier. Two years later the machine is still working and has never once exploded coffee all over the counter, unlike the machine it replaced. Controls are easy to use, thermal carafe keeps coffee hot for several hours, display is not backlit, design makes efficient use of space - all features I was looking for.
Summary: I have owned a lot of coffee makers. Krups, Mr. Coffee, Hamilton Beach among others. I have spent over a year with a Krups unprogrammable glass carafe coffee maker. So my goal was to find a thermal and programmable maker. And small. The footprint on this coffee maker is small. Fits easily under standard height cabinets. Easy to use. Easy to program. Brews in ten minutes. The coffee stays hot all day. Two hours after it brews, with one cup out it is still steaming hot.
Metal carafes rule. no more scorched coffee, nor burnt hot-plate.

Summary: All-day warm coffee because of the metal carafe. not scorched by the heat-plate, like cheap glass-pot coffee-makers. That's why we bought this Cuisinart. The critiques of the difficult pouring are valid, but the metal carafe works as intended for insulation. We Will keep eyes open for more cheap deals. Metal carafes don't break like the glass ones do.
Summary: Coffee pot is very nice. The only draw back is we previously had a Barista coffee maker and it was very substantial. This unit is higher quality than most coffee makers, it is just that the handle is lightweight plastic and it is hard to empty the carafe and clean the pot because the opening is very small. Nothing that we can't deal with, but concerned about the durability of some of the parts.
Excerpt: We make coffee in this pot every morning. It makes good coffee fairly quickly and let's you know when it is done. It has all of the features that I was looking for. The only small problem I have with it is that when I pour the water in to make the coffee, the window to show you how much water you are putting is in under you hand and difficult to see.
Pros: Stylish, Brews Quickly, Durable, Easy To Clean, Easy To Use
