Summary: I love everything about this coffeepot except for the fact that you have to completely clean all of the coffee grounds out of the machine before you use it again. Other than that, I would have given it FIVE stars.
Summary: This is my 4th Cuisinart Grind and Brew. They do eventually wear out, after 4-5 years. The coffee that results from grinding the beans immediately before brewing is so great, it's worth every penny spent. If you find one on sale, or if you have a coupon, you will be extra happy to have this coffee maker.
Summary: I loved this coffee maker while it worked. The water pump seems to go out too soon and too often and in checking for parts I found out that the parts are non-replaceable. Several other customers are having problems with it as well which is a disappointment since Cuisinart products are usually very good. I would say to just get a grinder and grind your own coffee and use a less expensive coffee maker that can be thrown out when it wears out.
