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: 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.
Summary: I love this machine, it is made of quality materials and came with the My K-cup and scoop, others are sold seperately. The water reservoir holds 80oz compared to 48oz for the other Keurig machines. K-cups are not costly, Walmart has them in an 18 ct ... box for $10.84.......thats .60 a cup folks, still cheaper than Starbucks and they can't give you great coffee/service in under a minute like this Cuisinart can!!
Summary: So far so good. This replaced our Keurig; we were on our second, which after 6 months just stopped working. The coffee is amazing and quick. Purchasing through Costco was the way to go, again. Love that it came with all the coffees, filters and most importantly the reusable K-cup for making our own coffee, which we do 1/2 the time. The delivery was quick. I love the return policy because if this one breaks...it's going back ASAP, and I need peace of mind.
Pros: great tasting great deal. coffee in an instant.
Summary: Compared them all and bought this one since the "extras" came with the unit. Water filter and coffee filter (Approx. $18.00 each). Just tried the coffee so far and I am happy with it. I still can't believe I just spent almost $200.00 for a coffee mak ... er. That makes me one of those guys.......
Summary: Used a Kurig for years but after seeing the store demo decided to replace it. Had the Cuisinart for about 30 days and all is fine except for the included charcoal filter. The Kurig filter was ordered as an accessory whereas the Cuisinart includes one. Unfortunately the Cuisinart filter bags are too narrow by design and allowing water to freely flow past the filter bag through nothing more than a fine mesh screen.
Pros: very quiet larger water reservoir good tasting coffee
