Summary: I've owned 3 Keurigs over the past 4 years. I realize that they need to be cleaned on a regular basis but it got ridiculous. I finally decided, when the last one quit pumping water, that there just might be a better product available.
Pros: large water reservoir easy to operate attractive uses keurig k-cups
Summary: We were quite happy with this coffee maker and it's ease of use. It has a plastic pod to use your own coffee. But it has lasted just over a year and will not work anymore. Too expensive, considering.
Summary: Well, my machine FINALLY went out... after about 5 years. It was a great machine and didn't give me any troubles. I can not say that about the Keurig. I decided to try and buy the new Keurig 2.0, what a mistake. Returning it and buying another Cuisinart!
Pros: reliable cleaning system - to clean needles easy to get coffee or hot water uses any type of k-cup
Cons: can't really think of any. make sure you clean it occassionally with vinegar
Excerpt: This coffee maker worked well for a good two years, but then suddenly started brewing less than the selected amount. Now, it brews way less than the selected amount, and it sometimes does not brew at all.
Excerpt: We first purchased this product around three years ago. We were enamored with its efficiency and ease of use. However we quickly discovered that many of the times we used the machine, it started to leak the coffee and other beverages from the pod.
