Excerpt: I agree with and I have had the same issues as the other poor ratings. I just returned my third brewer. There has to be a design flaw with this brewer. I have asked Cuisinart for a replacement voucher so I can purchase a different product. I am going back to Keurig.
Summary: I love this machine! My Mom drinks coffee, but I do not, so with one simple rinse cycle, I can pop in my iced tea or chai latte cups and get the beverage I want. It is so convenient to have hot water for instant oatmeal in a flash! I really appreciate that this machine filters the water in charcoal. A lot of the other single brew pots do not. I would recommend this for everyone who has a household with many tastes.
Excerpt: I doubt the first review on this page belongs in this thread...why?...because there is no way you can get coffee grounds in your brewed coffee using a K-Cup...secondly your brew is ready in under 3 minutes from the time you hit the on button.
Excerpt: From the very first use, I've had nothing but problems with this unit. It sometimes takes forever to brew, if at all. Other times my cup is filled with coffee grounds. If you use any setting other than the 10 oz., you do not get an accurate serving. I'm shopping for another unit as I am writing this review.
Excerpt: If you love to drink Coffee and like trying different coffees this is the way to do it. This machine comes with all the Bells + Whistles; and the reliability of Cuisinart and a 3 year warranty. I have Cusinart Toaster, Slow Cooker, Pans, Griddler, Coffee Maker, Coffee Grinder, Food Processor, Blender; you name it I have it. I use this everyday and love how it automactically comes on every morning and its ready for my first cup. Auto shuts off.
