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!
Summary: I bought the Cuisinart because I think it is better looking and some research showed it was heavier duty than the Keurig. I LOVE IT!!! I LOVE IT!! I LOVE IT!! The "head" mechanism where you put the k-cup is very heavy duty. It's very very easy to use; I figured it out without reading the instructions. You have 5 size choices (oz water brew) and it's programmable - heats up at 5:00am and turns itself off at 6:30am daily so it's always ready when I want it.
Summary: This was a refurbished coffeemaker. I bought it for my husband for Christmas. He read the instructions carefully and went step by step in setting it up. Water did not pump into the cup but pumped back into the reservoir. Contacted seller. Sent directions from Manufacturer on what to try. Several steps that we repeated numerous times. My husband was clearly frustrated and I was embarassed that this was the gift I had given him for Christmas. I sent it back for a refund.
