Summary: I like the water reservoir and not having to fill it every day. I also like not having to put in a coffee filter. It does make a lot of noise and vibrates but I can overlook that because it makes a great cup of coffee. I've also used it to make hot chocolate. It is easy to clean, as well. I got this coffee maker as a reconditioned unit therefore it wasn't as expensive as a new one. Although I really enjoy it I doubt I'd pay full price. Not sure why they are so expensive.
Summary: Nice machine, especially for the price. My husband and I love our coffee but sometimes work different schedules. The Cuisinart allows us each to have a fresh cup in minutes. More economical than half drunk pots or the K cups.
Summary: Once again, the adage "Buyer beware" proves itself timelessly accurate. This product was purchased based on the well established conception that Cuisinart offers an excellent product with outstanding customer service. This conception has been challenged on both accounts. As to product quality, I was willing to accept the noise and vibration endemic to this coffee brewer in anticipation of an outstanding cup of cooffee.
Summary: Unfortunately, the Cuisinart Cup-O-Matic that I purchased has become a poor purchase. I don't doubt the validity of Cuisinart, I think the product I purchased was obviously defective. It produces warm coffee that becomes cold with cream, it does not brew tea (I have tried every permutation of tea brewing to no avail). On 12 ounces, it produces about 10 ounces of coffee. I think I could have learned to live with everything except the warm/cold coffee.
Summary: We decide to purchase the Cuisinart Cup-o-matic after going through 2 Cafe Invento Pod Coffee makers. We checked online reviews and liked that you can brew either coffee pods or ground coffee, can select sizes and strength, and it has a large water reservoir. The only thing we dislike about our the Cuisinart is that it is quite noisy. It makes an excellant cup of coffee, just like you would get in a bistro.
Summary: I own 3 of these Coffeemakers. I don't actually use the pods, but rather, I use straight coffee and the coffee comes out great and fast. Clean up is even faster! The warm up time is very fast and the termperature is perfect. The Coffeemaker's design and simple function bottons make it very easy to use. I strongly recommend this Coffeemaker. What really sold me was the fact that you do NOT have to purchase special coffee pods or a specific type of coffee.
