DO NOT BUY - After 2 years of flawless use, suddenly it wont power on. At all.
Efstathi Placidas, Amazon
15 December 2014
Summary: It was great right up until suddenly without warning it wont power on. You would think there would be a simple inline fuse as a first level of defense and simple repair, but no. $200 coffee maker now not powering on. DO NOT BUY unless you are rich and and can afford replacing it.
Summary: good thing there is a 3 year warranty, at this rate it will be replaced annually
Pros: large reservoir
Cons: unit failed, started pumping back into reservoir instead of brewing, seems to be the common problem. Cuisinart stated that replacement units on backorder & not sure when a replacement will be available.
Summary: Do not be fooled. This machine is a pretty piece of junk. I Bought one five months ago. Then it stopped working. Called customer service and they were no help. Almost rude. Took it back to the store and exchanged because it is wonderful when it works.
Pros: Fast, Multiple Settings, Stylish
Cons: Fragile, Limited Cup Sizes, Noisy, Pricey / Poor Value
Summary: I bought 2 of these machines, 1 for the office & 1 for home. The one for home which was used on soft water was the one that failed
Pros: 5 year warranty
Cons: having to use the warranty in less than a year with limited use, having to pay shipping to get it to Cuisinart, being told the replacement unit is on "backorder" & they have no idea on when my replacement will arrive
Summary: Timer is off and coffee sometimes will make a cup or not....depends on ??? I have tried the various methods of unplugging the machine and waiting to replug, cleaning the little filter trap, whatever was suggested. Then, may make one cup before quiting again.

Pros: Looks great on counter
Cons: After making one cup of coffee, it is necessary to disassemble the unit, drain the water cannister, then wait an hour to refill and restart the unit. Then you may be able to make another cup of coffee. I have never had a product from Cuisinart work so poorly. This one is going back!.
