Summary: Have read numerous bad reviews. Many internet searches only state that most problems can be resolved by a periodic descale. My machine is about three years old and just started acting up... noisy pump and varying water quantity. Try (with power on), lifting reservoir until blue LED lights go out, then reseating until lights return. This resets a sensor in the machine. Mine has now been working fine for about a month.
Summary: It is so nice to have "instant' brewed coffee for my guests. It works so well that I no longer use a kettle to heat water for my tea. None of the coffee taste transfers to the heated water (and I am picky about this) so it works well for both. The water filter is a blessing with the local water which was what caused the problem with the Keurig machine.
Cuisinart SS-700 Single Serve Brewing System for Keurig K-cups

Summary: Bought this to replace my old one which was the identical machine. It lasted just over two years and the pump failed. I don't have hard water or scaling but after research seems most have this issue. I liked it enough to buy another, love the large tank size and the rinse feature.
Summary: I am so pleased with my new coffee maker! It's fast, efficient, looks great on the counter and makes great coffee. I really like the fact that you have the variety of cup sizes that you do. The insert that is attached so you can use your own coffee is an added bonus. The coffee maker arrived ahead of time expected, which was a nice surprise.
Summary: We bought this machine to replace a smaller Keurig. The Cuisinart is awesome! We love the 5 cup sizes and we can fit our tall coffee cups and travel mugs. The reservoir is very handy. We love the reusable filter, but even more so that it can be stored inside the machine. The hot water feature is great. We ended up tossing our regular coffee maker too because this is so convenient and brews so quickly.
Summary: Got this for a Christmas gift for someone, but they got one already, so we kept it and we love it for all the features. Like that it has a large removable water tank, two blue lights under the tank blink when it's time to refill. Also got it for half the price then it was in the stores here. Love shopping with Amazon. Very fast service.
Summary: I had one of these for 3 years now and my mom wanted one for Christmas but didn't want to take it home on the plane, they visited us for Christmas, 1500 KMs from her house. It is great to be able to ship it right to her house. And it will be there when they get home.
