Excerpt: This coffee maker started out amazing... But within less then a year it started to leak after making a pot. Not fun walking into the kitchen with a full container of hot coffee all over the counter and floor.
Excerpt: I registered for this coffee maker to replace out Keurig machine because I couldn't stand the taste of weak Keurig coffee anymore. This coffee maker makes delicious coffee that I can brew before I leave for work and it still hot and fresh for my husband to serve himself when he goes to work 3 hours later. I love that the baskets and the reservoir pull completely out of the machine, it makes it very easy to clean.

Summary: This Cuisinart coffee maker is the absolute bomb! No rancid coffee in carafe's (that can also break). Makes 12 cups lickity split, keeps it all at the correct temperature and whatever cup you are using fits right under the dispenser. The water well is clear and has a charcoal water filter (replaceable.) Set the clock, fill the reservoir with water, add the coffee to the basket and set it to brew so it's all hot and ready when you get up in the morning.
Summary: Worked for a year, then died. First the "1-4" option died, but it would still brew with it off. Then it eventually stopped brewing coffee altogether - you would turn it on and it would just sit there, the display was lit but the water heater would not turn on. Not buying Cuisinart ever again.
Summary: I had a boyfriend with one of these and I always was jealous of his, so I finally got one for myself. Overall, it's a great coffeemaker, but unfortunately, it starts leaking coffee all over the counter and floor as other reviewers have complained, and sooner than it should for the price and given the make that I usually think of Cuisinart as being (a good one).
