basket can overflow, flooding the controls under the heat plate
27 December 2011
Summary: If you pour a cup while the machine is still brewing, the basket can be jiggered when the pot is put back in the coffee maker. This is not noticeable when it happens. It will, however, be apparent when you discover most of a pot of coffee flooding your counter top and dripping on the floor.
Summary: I bought my 1st one about 1.5 years ago, it was still working but we have hard water and that was wearing it down. I order another one and also ordered one for brother-in-law who stayed with us for 6 months and often made two pots a day. It has held up well.
Summary: I spent about a week researching coffeemakers with the thermal carafe. I like strong coffee and have grown tired of my second and subsequent cups tasting burnt. What I really liked about this one was it has the features I need without bells and whistles I won't need.
Summary: I normally buy only items that have many reviews and 4 or 5 stars. This coffee maker had only two reviews but I decided to take a chance especially since it could be returned within 30 days. Even though most thermal coffee makers had many good reviews, there were too many negatives for each.
Summary: This coffeemaker has a compact size (small footprint) yet brews a BIG pot of coffee! In fact, the Cuisinart Compact Coffeemaker has it all: programmable (even just 1 to 4 cups), filters the water, has a gold "rinse and re-use" coffee filter, a big thermal pot, and its easy to use.
Summary: I held off for a while buying because of lack of reviews. I received my Cuisinart Monday, May 18 - defective out of box. I received my replacement, Wednesday, May 20. Cannot beat Amazon!!!! I've brewed one pot with no problems.
Summary: Nice machine in many respects, but the coffee is not very hot and not very strong. Even with two scoops of coffee per cup (double the recommended amount), the coffee is on the weak side. My guess is that the water is not heated to a high enough temperature.
Summary: I shopped a long time for a good coffeemaker, because I drink coffee every day and have been so frustrated with the other machines I have owned. This has been as near to perfect as I have ever found. -- The size is right for my limited counter space. -- It is easy to use and to clean.
Summary: I received this Coffee Maker last Friday. First of all, as another reviewer mentioned, I love the clean white/stainless steel look, and the small footprint. I have a very small kitchen and it fits easily on the counter.
Summary: I'm wondering about the reviewers who say their coffee isn't hot or strong enough -- do they keep their coffee in the freezer? Because THAT affects how coffee turns out.... (Freshness also affects strength.) I read all the reviews of this machine before I ordered it, to replace a Mr.
