Summary: This is new for us, but I can say the set up was quick and easy. The overall design is beautiful and durable. A couple of minutes for the water to heat up, and within seconds, we have a cup of coffee. It works very quickly and easily. If you don't want to use the K-Cups (it comes with 12 various samplers), you can also use regular coffee grounds. The water reservoir removes easily, or you can just pour water in the tank instead.
Pros: High quality, Durable, brews quickly, modern design
Excerpt: When I first used the coffee maker, there was a strange bad taste. The water going in was good, but the water coming out was not. It was like there was grease in the system. I called Cuisanart Customer Service. They recommended descaling with vinegar, which I did. That solved the problem. The coffee is now good.
Pros: Brews Quickly, Easy To Clean, Easy To Use, Multiple Settings, Reusable K cup
Summary: If you're planning on replacing this with the equivalent Keurig B70 Platinum series (note the similar model number), think again . These problems are Identical to experiences had by me, my sister, my son, his mother-in-law and finally my mom (bought her 1 before I knew they had problems. They just simply stop working within the first year.
Summary: I have had my Cuisinart Single Serve Coffee Maker for over a year, and it has been reliable and a joy to use. I would strongly recommend this product to anyone shopping for a singe serve coffee maker. With all of the features, this is hands down the best buy.
Does it's job well, and looks great. Overall a great buy!

Summary: I was looking for a coffee brewer for Keurig K-cups, but I didn't like the look of the Keurig branded brewers. Along came the Cuisinart SS-700. A sleeker, more industrial looking machine that fits my kitchen. It's a great brewer with a reasonably sized reservoir. It has a blue-lit LCD display, blue accent lights in the reservoir, and blue light around the buttons.
Awesome product, will last forever as a manufacturer refurb, no complaints!

Summary: This product was bought for my fiancee. She loves everything about this coffee maker. The ability to have instant hot water, the different size cup options, the iced beverage option, I could go on and on. The design is smooth and it doesn't have that weird hovering arm in front of the k cup head.
Summary: This unit is wonderful. I can grind and brew my own coffee in a reusable KCUP. I also have a variety of drinks to choose from with KCUPS such as coffee, tea and cocoa. I can use the hot water button just for soup or tea. I need not to worry about the height of my cup. You just follow the directions on the screen and you have a great hot or cold beverage instantly! Glad I chose the Cuisinart.
Fantastic product that does exactly what it is supposed to do.

Summary: So far everything is great with this machine. My mother received a Keurig Platinum for her birthday, and this cuisinart works nearly identical. The one real nice thing that I have, that her Keurig didn't seem to have...is the Cuisinart has a built-in compartment to house the "Brew-your own" coffee filter, whereas the Keurig's didn't. (At least that she noticed.) Nonetheless, this machine works great.
