Summary: Works great - when it works. I've been through 2 of them. The electrics burned out after 5 months. Warranty process so costly and onerous, it is cheaper to buy a new one. If youy're smart, a different brand. Cuisinart should be ashamed!
I was happy with this coffee maker -- until it caught fire

Summary: I was happy with this coffee maker -- until it caught fire. Doesn't matter how good a cup of coffee or how easy a coffeemaker is to use -- catching fire cancels all the good points! I'm going back to Mr. Coffee.
Summary: Written after the last two paragraphs: I looked into sending this for warranty repair. The coffee maker cost $31.95 with a "3 year" warranty. To get warranty service you must ship it back, at your expense (roughly $15.00), and you must enclose $10.00 to have it shipped back to you.
Summary: Three days prior to this post this coffee maker, which I own and is less than a year old, went up in smoke! The lower portion where the display and controls are housed shorted out. And, before someone asks, there was no water that got into the unit!
Summary: I bought this product in March. It died in July. Unfortunately I cannot return or get reimbursed do to the tiny window of that opportunity that Amazon allows you. My first time purchasing a Cuisinart product---And my Last!!! Sadly, Sheila MKE., WI.
Summary: The coffee maker looks nice for the price, but it is mostly plastic. You have to make sure the basket is all the way down for it to drip properly. My husband keeps forgetting this & it makes a mess with the water and coffee grounds overflowing out of the top instead of into the carafe.
