Summary: I bought this coffee maker as I have an apartment with limited space. Its great looking and just the right physical size. Unfortunately after using it for a few months, some bad design points mean I wouldn't purchase another or recommend it.
Summary: I have had this coffeemaker for almost 2 and a half years and I thought it was about time I write a review. Boy was I shocked when I saw all the 1 star reviews. This is my second Cuisinart coffeemaker.
Summary: We love the carafe feature of this coffeemaker. You use the electricity just long enough to make the coffee and then the carafe keeps it hot for hours after that. We also use the program start feature and that has worked very well.
Summary: I was mistaken. I didn't have it for 2 years. It's been 18 mos. Made good coffee until it died of the electrical crackles and smoke. My sweet English Budgie died tonight (budgies are poisoned by fumes of various types); the smoke yesterday morning. Hope that had nothing to do with it.
Summary: I purchased this item May 2009 so I have over a years experience. I cannot count the number of times I have vowed never to purchase another Cuisinart product. Looks great, and love the thermal carafe but overall its very poorly designed.
Summary: I really like this coffeemaker. I didn't realize that it doesn't use a "burner" or warming plate to keep the coffee warm. The pot is a thermal carafe that keeps the coffee hot without a burner. It actually works well and doesn't give the coffee a burnt flavor.
Summary: This machine works well if you make sure the basket is seated properly, the top is closed completely and the carafe is seated well. I noticed the complaints seemed to be mre likely operator error or defective machines. I gave it a try and am very pleased. Great coffee consistently - if your careful.
Summary: I have owned a Bunn, and it stopped working, so I bought this and have had it for over a year now and it is awesome, and dependable. I love that the carafe is stainless steel and it keeps the coffee warmer a lot longer than the glass and it taste fresh. I also love that it is programmable.
