Watch this coffeemaker very carefully when brewing!!
16 February 2015
Summary: Very poor design. As so many others have noted in the one star reviews, this coffee maker has a tendency to make a BIG mess when it does not brew properly. It does not happen every time , in fact it has only happened three times to me over maybe 60-70 pots of coffee.
Summary: I have bought Cuisinart coffeemakers for the past 10 years but I was going through all the reviews and didn't see the problem I am having. My first one quit making coffee 2 years after I bought it so I sent it to Az. to get it replaced. I had the replaced one for 6 years.
Summary: I received this as a gift eleven months ago. It recently stopped working half way through a brew cycle. There was a noticeable burnt wire smell at the same time. Tried cleaning it with vinegar, etc.
Summary: This coffee maker just stopped brewing after less than 3 years. Sadly this is outside their warranty and they won't do anything to replace it. Just a shame and makes me wonder about buying Cuisinart anymore in the future, since they feel that they don't need to support their products to a length...
Summary: For the price, I would have expected a better coffee maker. After only 4-years, it quit brewing. I asked Cuisinart for repair help, but they only stood by argument that warranty expired after 3-years.
Summary: I had a Cuisinart coffee maker in the past and loved it. We purchased all stainless steel appliances, so I switched my coffee maker out as well, still sticking to a Cuisinart. I was so disappointed once I received this!
Summary: Purchased this coffee maker about 9 months ago, and it worked good for about 7 months. It makes coffee, but the burner does heat up, so coffee doesn't stay hot. Maybe it's just this one, but I won't waste my money on another one. I will find a different brand.
Summary: This coffee maker will brew your coffee just fine - but it just doesn't last. We've had it for only two years and already it stops brewing mid way or the hot plate/entire unit will shut down after the brew cycle.
Summary: A great looking coffee maker, and does the job very well, but just went dead a little under 2 years. Always followed proper care, changed filters, cleaned, etc. but just stopped working altogether. Paid more for this than I originally wanted to.
