Summary: I've used about every type of coffee machine there is and Cuisinart is the brand I always come back to. The brew system is a good quality and does pretty much everything it says it will. This particular brew system is supposed to keep coffee hot and has the choice of regular vs bold coffee.
Summary: Pretty good. Was expecting it to brew faster. Some days it seems to get "clogged up" and all of the coffee builds up in the filter then pours into the carafe at once. Not sure why. I keep the pot and filter very clean and even ran it through a clean cycle once.
Summary: Love the coffee maker but I didn't notice until I used it that the lid hinge was broken on one side. I had found a small piece of black plastic and couldn't see where it had come from. I have to open and close the lid carefully to keep it in its slot.
