This is a good coffee maker with a few exceptions.

Excerpt: This being the 1st style that I bought, is very attractive on the counter. The thermal Carafe is a great Idea, although ,the pouring performance is poor, being that the design of the Carafe, to keep the coffee hot, allows only a small opening at the spout to pour therefore causing the coffee to pour very slowly.Also the Carafe is a bit heavy to hold especially when it is full and is difficult to clean the inside because of the small opening at the top.
Pros: Cuisinart Grind & Brew Thermal was a great buy. I like how it grinds and brews 10 cups of coffee and the Themal insulated kraft really keeps your coffee hot for a long time. So if you are in the market for a new coffee maker, I highly recommend this one to you. I also has a small footprint so it doesn't take up a lot of counter space.
Summary: This was a replacement for a 5 year old (used daily and sometimes multiple times daily) Cuisinart Grind & Brew. This one has a water filter and the design has changed a bit, but it's stylish, easy to use and a wonderful way to get fresh brewed coffee every morning!! I also like that you don't have to shut it off or worry about a hot burner. It shuts off automatically and the thermal carafe keeps it hot for several hours.
Summary: I have had this coffeemaker for 4 years & it is used mostly everyday we are home. Was just checking out if still offered & was surprised to find complaints. Have never had a problem & if needed would like to replace with similar product. Hope if there is a flaw it is corrected before I need to replace. Makes a good cup of coffee.
Thrilled to have the grind and brew in a thermal caraffe

Summary: I have purchased Cuisinart Grind and Brew coffee makers for the past 16 years. They are good and reasonbly priced. This model so far I am enjoying! The thermal pot keeps the coffee hot and the other functions are typical Cuisinart perfection!!
