Summary: We purchased this particular coffee maker about 2 weeks ago and, so far, we love it! It's quieter than our old Keurig branded machine, and holds almost twice the amount of water. It makes great coffee with the pre-filled Kcups. We haven't used the "My Kcup" with this machine yet, but I have no doubt that we'll enjoy it. Plus it has a hot water button and it refills itself so quickly. I wanted to have an option for using my French Press or for making iced tea.
Excerpt: I've used this machine for about 6 months. It has worked perfectly from day one. I love being able to switch from coffee to tea to hot water with no hassle. It has a fairly large footprint which is made bigger with the drawer-coffee-holder accessory underneath. However, I love the drawer so much the extra size doesn't matter. I wish the coffee Kcups that you buy tasted better. I can make better coffee using my own with the little manually-filled cups.
Summary: I bought this for my wife. I've been trying to get her to get one for awhile. I finally went ahead and got it for her, and she has used it every day. It allows her to make different size cups and even double up for her travel mug. It's very easy to use and the flavors available are amazing. (apple cider, hot chocolate, teas, as well as coffee) It also has the ability to use any ground coffee. Her office has a Keurig and she likes the Cuisinart much better.
Summary: Coffee Maker hasn't worked beyond initial set up. Never brewed a full cup, much less than 4 oz despite setting at 8 or greater. after two cups stopped working all together , all trouble shooting techniques failed . Beware, Cuisinart does not honor warranty for purchases through EBAY. Definitely do not recommend this product..
This product has revolutionized our 25 year coffee and tea experience.

Summary: This maker is great! I generally use a Capresso E8 to make espresso drinks (espressos, lattes, etc.) Wanting to cut back on espresso consumption, we ordered this machine for its ease of single servings like the Capresso machine. Since having the machine, we have not used our Cuisinart regular coffee maker. ALL of our coffee drinks are made with this coffee maker!! We have the ability to make coffee as well as tea.
Summary: I have had the coffee maker for about 2 months. I was tired was waiting 10 minutes for my old coffee maker to make a pot of coffee and throwing out 50% of the pot due to only needing 2 cups. With this I get a great cup of coffee every time in less than a minute. The entire family loves this machine. My wife and 18 year old son like the capichino and my 11 year old loves the hot chocolate. It has worked perfectly since I got it.
Pros: quick brewing, large 12 oz cup, large watertank
Summary: After looking at a number of coffee makers that use K-cups, I decided on the Cuisinart. I like the extra filter, fillable tank, and 5 different cup size choices. You can also remove the tray to fill taller cups such as to go cups. It is easy to use and make a single cup of coffee for me, I am inept at using a regular coffee maker and I would either make it too strong or too weak. This is exact all the time and my coffee is perfect.
Summary: It seems some people are having problems with this coffee maker, but I love the features, the ability to choose the cups or use regular coffee. It has worked very good the day I took it out the box about a year ago. Would definitely buy another one.
Exceptional value! Exceeded all of my expectations!

Summary: After 6 weeks of daily use, this coffee maker has exceeded all expectations. It is a great value and does everything it's advertised to do. Easy to setup and use. Allows you to enjoy a hot fresh cup of gourmet coffee or chocolate in a minute, anytime day or night. No more throwing out old, dried out stored coffee. Highly recommend!
