Good thermal carafe machine, but pay attention to the stop-and-pour feature.

Summary: This Cuisinart FlavorBrew thermal carafe coffee maker is compact and stylish, and makes a tasty cup that stays hot for hours without additional heating. We like our coffee strong, and this machine's brew tastes best when using 8 cups of water or less.
Wakes you up...but not long enough, Seriously Dissapointed!

Summary: When the husbands hours got shifted to early, we needed a programmable coffee pot and this works great....the only complaint is the alarm. It beeps when the coffee is done. At 3:30 in the morning, it seems awful loud so I set the programming and it now beeps the same time as the alarm clock is going...
Summary: I really like this coffee maker and the thermal carafe but even when the coffee first brews it is not quite hot enough. I have taken to pre-warming the metal carafe with boiling water to try to get the temp up a bit.
Summary: Just like my former 12 cup Cuisinart coffee maker, 90% of the time, I love this machine. The only thing is to make sure you have the filter in properly and that you clean it well so grounds don't build up which then means overflow! Does not keep the coffee hot hot for very long, but good enough.
Summary: A good, basic, coffee maker. Easy to clean. Thermos keeps the coffee hot - but not boiling - for our daily breakfast. Two irritants: 1. There is no easy spot to pour water into the tank. You have to pour carefully or you will slop water all over. 2.
Summary: This was a true lemon purchase for us. Coffee does not stay hot. Why even have a thermal pot if the coffee lukewarm? Would not recommend this to anyone and really question Cuisinart quality in products. Thought they were reliable. Do not waste your money.
Summary: This Cusinart DCC-755 makes excellent coffee if you care enough to do it properly. I own several high-end coffee makers receiving good reviews from the experts because they heat water to the requisite 190-200 degrees and disburse it evenly over the grind for complete flavor extraction: Capresso,...
Summary: I have used this every day for 8 months. If I could, I would return it. My main problem is that the coffee is never hot, even when it is just brewed. Also, the carafe does not retain heat very well.
Summary: The good about this coffeemaker is it makes good tasting coffee and the thermal carafe works well to keep the coffee hot. The bad - The directions say do not use too finely ground coffee as the water/coffee may back up in the filter basket. So, I have been using a regular grind.
Summary: About once a week something happens where the coffee stays in the filter area and does not go into the carafe. I think this must happen when the carafe is not seated in the maker properly. We are extra careful about trying to get it right -and it still happens.
