Summary: good price; will have to clean the grinder every time you use it. Collects too much steam or moisture around and in the grinder areas which could block grinder coffee from being delivered to the strainer, so clean the grinder and dry it before making the next batch of coffee.

Summary: I had an older model of this and it lasted about 3 years. When it went, thought I would try the new model since it looks more modern and perhaps improved? Well........ The GOOD There is SO MUCH to like about this coffee maker. I find it easy to use and easy to clean. I like setting it up the night before and waking up to great coffee.
Summary: Do not buy this product. I love coffee. I enjoy my cup in the morning as part of my routine. The timer is very nice and easy to use. BUT the coffee-making function is below average... the water trajectory must be ill-designed or not manufactured well because a typical amount of coffee (grounds or whole beans) will give you brown water - not coffee. I have tried changing coffee grinds, water temp, etc. I will discard this product.

Summary: This is a blade grinder. There is another more expensive model which is a burr grinder which is probably a much better brewer. The blade grinder does not extract as much flavor and burns the beans while grinding.. 20141119 Update: downgraded. it just doesn't make good coffee. If you like brown water, you might like this product; steer clear if you like real coffee.
This is the worst, most inconsistent coffee maker I've ever had
4 October 2014
Summary: This is the worst, most inconsistent coffee maker I've ever had. Sometimes it's like the water never even passes through the coffee grounds - after brewing the water was barely brown, and the center of the grounds was actually dry. The machine somehow added a metallic flavor to coffee that I could not get rid of. No matter how many washes and clean cycles coffee didn't taste like coffee. How does a coffee machine totally screw up the one job it has?
Summary: Great buy. This is the best coffee maker I have ever had. Nothing bad to say , but it could use a grinder timer. After three BUNN makers in five year they all broke. Superior coffee flavor compared to a bunn. Worth the money and then some.

Summary: This coffe maker is not nearly as versatile and efficient as Cuisinart's previous models (which I owned and loved for six years befor the grinder died and we had to get this one) and we I was very unimpressed with the most recent model. Issue 1 - The grinder only holds a small amount of beans - so little that the full 12 cup brew isn't strong enough for me nor many of my family members so the Manx I can brew is 10 cups in order to keep the flavor right.
Summary: There are a lot of steps to making coffee here with this machine. Clean out where the beans go which is in two parts, clean out the filter section which has three parts to it, then rince out the carafe and pour in the water. The one thing that I really didn't care for is you cannot adjust the grind, you just push a button to grind and that is it unless there is something I don't know. Also you cannot put enough beans in to make 12 cups on this machine.
