Summary: I bought this model because my coworker had an older model that stood up well. This one worked great as well for 2 years, then first turned off the heater without notification (which you notice when you put that cold coffee in your mouth), then failed to pull all the water through. Very disappointing for a relatively expensive coffee maker.
Pros: good tasting coffee permanent filter good carafe
Summary: I purchased an almost identical Cuisinart unit 10 years and 8 months ago. Turned the knob to start it this morning and nothing happened. Have used it every day, except when on vacation of course, for a long, long, time and it has always made the very best coffee in the world. Very happy to have found the same, slightly updated model still available. Ordered it an hour ago.
Summary: I expected this product to last longer than 2 years. The feature that keeps your coffee warm after brewing just stopped working. It's only worthy of the trash now. Just too expensive to be a throw away appliance after such a short amount of time.
Summary: I guess it would get 3 stars for before it stopped working. I love the timer function, the coffee tastes great, etc. However the placement of the carafe can be very finicky, and we've had the experience of everything looking like it's just so, but the water backing up in the cone (not releasing into the pot) and making a mess.
Pros: easy to use programmable functions
Cons: if not placed properly can back up in the machine
Summary: Great in the beginning...but after a VERY short while it didn't finish the brewing cycle...another consumer wrote the about the same issue...turn it off, turn it back on...OMG who has time for that! Better to buy something cheap that you expect to die early...not this-Cuisinart is not the same quality it used to be!
Summary: Love this coffee pot! We replaced a Cuisinart coffee pot that we'd had for several years that was just like this one, except it had a stainless steel carafe. I love that this one pours so nicely without making a mess. The timer's great! Good coffee!
I was replacing the one I had for 8 years and it worked great. Said it was new but looked refurbished

Summary: This wa not what I ordered. All made out of plastic and not brushed stainless as it said on the box. I was replacing the one I had for 8 years and it worked great. It said it was new but looked refurbished and contents looked as if it has been opened before. That should have been the first clue that it wasn't new. Only gave it a star because I had too.
