Summary: This coffee machine is great, the aroma when it brew a fresh pot is great. We have experimented with 2 types of beans from Fairway and hope to try some more. The carafe does indeed keep the coffee hot for hours. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a grind and brew machine.
Summary: I chose this unit despite some of the mixed reviews and am very glad I did. Perhaps some had received defective machines because the coffee is always steaming hot even hours after brewing. I find it as easy to clean as any other coffee maker I have had over the years and adjusting brew strength is as easy as tuning a dial or adding or subtracting water to bean ratio.
Cuisinart Grind and Brew Thermal Coffee Maker-12 c
15 December 2014
Summary: I've had mine for 4 years, and love it! It still works great. So, we purchased one for our daughter and son-in-law for Christmas. So far, we are hearing that they like theirs as much as I do mine.
Summary: This coffee maker brews a wonderful pot of coffee, but if you like your coffee Dunkin Donuts hot I would suggest you purchase the model with the glass carafe and warmer. The thermal carafe does not keep coffee hot as advertise.
Summary: We had one of these coffee pots and it stopped working out of the blue. It was an electrical problem which I was unable to repair. The company was not able to repair it either which would have been practical.
Summary: Looks nice and the coffee tastes great however the carafe is so difficult to clean! I needed to use my baby's bottle brush to get inside....good thing I have a baby and had one on hand! So my husband figured it would be easier to put the carafe in the dishwasher as it states it is dishwasher safe and now there is water trapped in between the walls of the carafe!
Summary: It's a bit complicated and we still haven't found the exact right settings for a perfect brew. Also, seems to use much more coffee than when we ground it ourselves separately from the coffee maker. Could be a function of finding those perfect settings that still elude us.
