Summary: This coffer maker shuts off immediately after brewing. Even though there is a thermos, the coffee was cold within an hour as the heating plate also turned off after brewing. It is a smart design, but just didn't perform as expected.
Summary: I have owned this coffee maker for four years and have loved it. I love how it looks and and how it grinds and brews. We have not had a problem with any part of it even though we have used it practically every day for the last four years. I love having the coffee grinder integrated with the brewer.
Product good but unit delivered had broken/defective parts

Summary: This is my second Cuisinart DGB 600 Grind and Brew Coffeemaker. The first one lasted for years and was a very good product. It just finally aged and little things went wrong so we decided to replace the old coffeemaker with a new one of the same model.
Summary: A good machine with its own quirks. We "upgraded" from a Cuisinart DGB-300. My comparison of the 600 to the 300: PROS: no hot plate in unit; we can put the thermos carafe on a tile on our breakfast table and not have to trek to the kitchen for a cup refill.
Summary: This is a gorgeous coffeemaker. Nice to get up in the morning with fresh ground, fresh brewed coffee. Only thing: you can use this baby for a morning alarm. When it grinds, it is loud! But doesn't last long, so you don't have to wonder who's breaking into your house for long.
Summary: I bought this product based on the recommendation of a good friend. He's had the early generation Grind & Brew for several years. The older design does not include the thermal carafe. I'm mostly disappointed in this coffee maker because of it's inferior design.
