Summary: Was in search of a top-notch coffee maker. This one hasn't put an end to that quest, and it wasn't cheap.

Summary: This coffeemaker is a perfect example of a disposable appliance. It has plenty of features, is convenient to use and works well enough ... until it stops working. Unfortunately, my experience as the owner of two of these coffeemakers is that it stops working far too soon.

Summary: Melitta 10 Cup Thermal vs Cuisinart 14 cup Brew Central: The quest for a new coffee maker started upon the demise of an 18 month old Mr. Coffee (the immediate predecessor to the top seller here on Amazon). The Mr. Coffee worked fairly well until it began to leak from the base. After 18 months?
Excerpt: We use this coffee maker every single day. It is super easy to clean. It brews delicious coffee. We use all types of brands depending what is on sale. This includes high end, medium end, and specialty coffees etc..
