Summary: I suppose they did their best and I was just expecting to much the whole time.
Pros: it was cheap, that's about it.
Cons: I wouldn't be suprised if ths never get's published but I need to let off some steam so I'll be happy. Sure, you always take a chance buying refurbished but mine arrived with a big crack on the water lid and it leaks on the floor more than what makes in the cup. they did though offer me a 10$ credit so they did try. when I bought it it was 35 but now its 60 or I'd buy it again. I guess on a positive note if I stand there and run it through the cycle the cup gets fille...
Pros: K-cups in general are overpriced, but if you plug them into this machine, dang if they don't deliver. Everything I've tried has been delicious. I tried to use the My K-Cup to make some Gunpowder Green tea, and that was an abject failure, but if I use the machine to make the hot water and steep things properly, everything tastes great.
Cons: I tried to use the My K-Cup to make some Gunpowder Green tea, and that was an abject failure, but if I use the machine to make the hot water and steep things properly, everything tastes great. To balance that: my proper K-cups from Lipton make a nice cup of tea. If got some Twinings tea K-Cups coming in the mail, but I expect it will be good as well.
Summary: I purchased two of these for us so we each could have one at work. We have the ss-7700 st home, these are compact enough and brew reasonably fast. Great purchase and I would recommend these for work. The larger unit is best for home.
Pros: Great price, compact
Cons: Sometimes have to turn it off and back on if glitches
Summary: Easy to use. Seems to work as advertised. Just surprised it is all plastic trying hard to look like metal. No classy look at all, unless you are really in to plastic. Not sure I can say it was worth the refurb price.
Summary: Use it several times a day for coffee, hot tea, and hot chocolate. Have used several brands and all are excellent. Only issue is water sometimes spills over top when adding. Overall, am exceptionally pleased and really glad I ordered.
Excerpt: This product is made mostly of cheap plastic, only the part that heats water is made of metal. The entire front, buttons, the part that opens to hold k cups, the overflow reservoir and everything else is all cheap plastic. Looks and feels cheap, I was shocked when I took it out of the box. Cuisinart used to mean high quality but not for this product. I used this product a few times before it quit working, less than one month.
