Summary: I've only had my machine for 6 days, but was not satisfied with the coffee that came with my unit. So, I went and bought my own coffee (organic, and organic decaf), and unfortunately, the coffee is still weak. I am used to my Senseo which delivers a frothy, hot, strong cup of Java, but unfortunately, the pods are getting harder to find in my local grocers, not to mention the fact, they do not offer organic coffee.
Pros: makes a hot cup of water for hot choc/tea. nice looking
Cons: makes a very weak cup of coffee unless it's a 4 oz kind of large compared to my senseo.
Summary: So far so good, we have had this machine at work for a year and I have wanted one so bad! I purchased this a month ago and no regrets! I love it!!!!!!!! The only downside? I drink way more coffee because it's easy to make, so yummy, and there is no cleaning the pot! The iced coffee setting is awesome!
Summary: I've had the Cuisinart for maybe a month or so now and so far so good! I had been wanting one for a long time and I'm really glad that I ended up purchasing it. Costco's deal is by far the best. Been enjoying making a fresh cup of coffee in a hurry every morning--whether it's iced coconut, chocolate raspberry, or regular:) I think I'll be getting a lot of use out of it so it's worth the $.
Summary: I agree with and I have had the same issues as the other poor ratings. I just returned my third brewer. There has to be a design flaw with this brewer. I have asked Cuisinart for a replacement voucher so I can purchase a different product. I am going back to Keurig.
Pros: Easy to Use, Time-saver, Easy to Clean, Versatile
Summary: We have two of these Cuisinart Single Serve Brewing machines that we use in our trailer that we take around to special events on weekends. We sell on average 80 cups of coffee, tea or hot chocolate per event and have never had a problem with either of our machines in the year we have had them! We do change the filters on a regular basis when we see that the flow may be running slower & we do rinse the heads out at least on a daily basis.
Summary: I love this machine! My Mom drinks coffee, but I do not, so with one simple rinse cycle, I can pop in my iced tea or chai latte cups and get the beverage I want. It is so convenient to have hot water for instant oatmeal in a flash! I really appreciate that this machine filters the water in charcoal. A lot of the other single brew pots do not. I would recommend this for everyone who has a household with many tastes.
