Summary: I love this machine so much that I purchased one for a friend after I had mine for a couple weeks. My only wish was that I had a water line connected directly to it, but that's obviously not practical. We had two choices at Costco, this one and a Keurig version. This one is superior. Solid construction and a bigger water reservoir. If you like Starbucks, their k-cups will be coming fall of 2011 (according to a Starbucks Blog).
Pros: solid contruction easy to use attractive looking design
Summary: I have had the platinum keurig brewing machine for 4 years and smaller machines prior to that. This machine is definitely a step up. I haven't had any of the problems others report on some of the blogs. It is quieter. My husband likes to make hot cocoa. When using the keurig machine, he complained that he could taste my coffee in his hot cocoa. This is not the case with the Cuisinart machine. We haven't even needed to use the flush feature.
Summary: I have had three of these, first one quit working after 30 days, the second one after 2 weeks and now the 3rd one after 3 days! Thank God for Costco's return policy. I can not understand why Costco has not pulled this item from their shelves, the clerk at the store said they get 3 to 4 returns a day of this item, I guess I am just a slow learner.
Summary: This is an AWESOME product for the coffee connoisseur who demands the best flavor and piping hot coffee. You can use any Keurig Coffee K-Cups or use the My K-Cup module for your favorite Starbucks blend. Adjustments for both the temperature and the dispense size are a huge plus for this coffee maker. I am a coffee fanatic - and finally - this Cuisinart Single Serve Brewer is my most prized kitchen appliance - ever!!!
Pros: Brews Quickly, Durable, Easy To Clean, Easy To Use, Great for On-the-Go Folks, K-Cup for Starbucks, Modern Design, Multiple Settings, One Button Start, Perfect Brew Each Time, Stylish, Temperature Control
Summary: I am really enjoying my new purchase. It heats water quickly so I don' t have to wait very long for my coffee. I still make a full pot using my old coffee maker in the morning due to cost, but I find myself frequently making a cup throughout the day. I am amazed that the coffee tastes so well!
Summary: I have had this brewer for about a month and couldn't be happier. It takes a few tries to find the "right" coffee for your taste, but with some patience, you will find the one that suits your coffee taste buds. In addition, the available K-Cups of teas is nice as my wife doesn't drink coffee, but loves a hot cup of tea in the evening. The machine is very quiet, fast and a nice addition to our coffee bar area of the kitchen.
Summary: Already have one of these at home and ordered another one for my office because I am now a "coffee snob" and will only drink the k-cup coffee, fresh cup each time. Also bought one for my daughter, and she loves hers. The cuisinart is a great machine, looks sleek and works wonderfully. and this was a super deal with the coffee and filters included. Can also dispense only hot water for oatmeal, tea or hot chocolate not from a k-cup.
