Summary: This is a fantastic coffee maker and it is too bad that Cuisinart has discontinued it. Have been using this model for over 12 years and it makes a perfect cup of coffee. Cuisinart no long provides spare parts which is why I purchased this unit, as backup to the one I currently have in service.
Summary: This Coffee maker is no longer manufactured, so it took some time before I found a listing for a new one, it replaces my previous DGB-300, which I used every day for about 15 years before the blades in the grinder wore to the point where it didn't grind very well, was so happy to get this as I am not to happy with the coffee makers being manufactured today, sorry if you can't find one, as it's an excellent product
Summary: We purchased this because we currently own a Mr. Coffee Grind and Brew...which is discontinued. I don't think they sell these anymore, either...so we bought this in case ours quits working one day. We are very happy w/this and it has extra features that are nice. It was much less expensive than the newer Cuisinart models. We're fine w/the jet takeoff sound and we don't really mind the cleaning process. But there are a lot more parts than there were in the Mr. Coffee.
Summary: We have had several coffee makers, and this by far is one of the best. The only reason we purchased again was because we accidentally dropped the basket on the ceramic tile floor, and a piece broke off that I could not repair. This model is so good that we preferred to try and find it used, than buy the new one the manufacturer replaced it with. This coffee maker is simple to operate, and grinds the beans wonderfully.
Summary: I have only owned this coffee maker/grinder for a short period of time and only used it a few times and it just all of a sudden stopped working. I would not recommend this to anyone. Although it is not a very expensive maker, it still is more than your average brewer. I am so disappointed. I now have to buy a new one and in this economy , its not easy!
Summary: I've always wanted one, now that I have I wonder why I waited so long. What a wonderful machine, make the best coffee, and I drink coffee all day long. Very easy to clean, I like everything about it.
Summary: Messy and a pain to clean. Little parts keep breaking (carafe lid, top hood lock, drip stop spring). We have to keep buying spare machines to cannibalize for replacement parts. Sometimes the grinder fails and only half the beans get used. Sometimes the beeping fail-safe lid mechanism goes crazy and won't stop beeping; we have to unplug the machine for a few minutes to reset it.
Summary: I bought this coffee maker because I had the exact same one that my sons girlfriend broke it and I could not find the same one anywhere so, EBAY where you can find anything.I like this coffee maker because I already knew about it.
Summary: This would be my second Cuisinart grinder coffeemaker. I was hoping that cuisinart had made design changes that would improve the operation of the maker, and they have. It was a good machine before now its a great machine, they cured the moisture problem and added the brew feature wich does improve the taste of the coffee.
