Excerpt: I bought this machine at Black Friday Sale last year (2011). It's been exactly one year with daily use (average 2-3 coffee and 3-5 hot water for tea, hot chocolate, and etc). I always use filtered water or bottled water. I have never descaled it yet. The water flow is still the same and no changes in the noise level. It works like the first day I bought. In terms of the coffee strength, it varies by person to person and coffee to coffee.
Excerpt: What I really love about this machine is that I can use my own coffee or the pods. It is perfect every time and no waste which is what I really wanted in a coffee maker. You never have any left over coffee and it is always fresh!
Summary: I love this brewer. It has many options like a heat setting, cup size and the capatability of the My K-cup if you want to use your own grounds. Some have said they are noisy but I personally don't think it is. It has a very fast heat time - less than 4 minutes. I also own a Keurig B155 but I prefer this one for the options.
Summary: I really wanted a single serve cup to get that fresh cup of coffee each and every time. Didn't buy the Keurig because of the reviews saying there are lots of problems with it. Costco told us that a lot more of the Keurig's were returned and not as many of the Cuisinart mode so we bought it instead. Now this is not a cheap coffee maker so it should work for a few years. After 20 months it died. I had issues for a few months with air bubbles and then the pump went.
Summary: I have had the Cuisinart K-Cup System for about 2 years. We have been having problems for over a year. I have never tried to get it repaired nor have I tried to return it. This is a very expensive beverage system but the convenience is worth it if it would work properly. We have had various issues as follows: We have had water outflow issues....(either entirely too slow or the chosen cups size is not accurate). I have tried the recommended cleaning tips....
Summary: We have owned exactly one year. We are about to have it repaired or replaced for the 3rd time. The most common problems with K Cup machines is the pump. The pumps are not designed to last a long time unless you only make one cup of coffee a day. Our first one was replaced by Costco in week 2 because the pump went out. Now, we have to have it fixed or replaced again. While the concept is cool, the machine itself is a pain.
Pros: really can't think of any pro's at this time
Cons: couldn't even last one year without being fixed 2 machines break down in less than a year
Excerpt: This machine makes a great cup of coffee.. In the past I hesitated getting a Keurig Machine but I am glad I selected this one. No matter what you select it comes out perfect. I don't know why one has so many problems with this machine. I believe it is a operator problem. I clean it every 2 months per instructions and everything works as expected. No grounds in my coffee cup..
Summary: excellent product very quiet. makes perfect coffee every time.There are plenty different cup sizes for every one. we use 5 times a day with no issues.We use it for making tea and coffee.easy to clean up which doesn't require it very often.
