Rated 2 out of 5Â by Krismilwi poor product
I bought this three years ago, after the first time I attempted to clean it (following the manufacturer's directions) it overheated. Luckily, it was within the first year and they sent me a new one. However, I tried cleaning it again. Once again, it happened. Now I am on machine number 3. I have been afraid to try cleaining it again. I used vinegar like they said, but the sediment doesn't get flushed out, it just get's stuck, blocks the pipes and overheats everything. Well now after a couple years it is breaking down. Can not brew more than 4 cups at a time before it shuts off from overheating. Would not buy if I could do it all over.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by Prioritypets Great way to have freshly ground coffee daily
We have had Cuisinart coffee Brewers for years. We had not invested in the top of the line brewer until this one, but the previous grind and brew was labor intensive to clean the burr grinder daily. I love the large bean hopper in this machine and that I only clean the grinder Shute every 7-10 uses. That means a less time consuming daily cleaning routine between uses. The 4 star rating is due to the part which sits in the water reservoir to hold a filter cartridge. The small plastic tab broke right out of the box! The part is actually most likely optional and not going to impact the operation or use of the coffee maker, but at this price, that is not the quality I would expect. All that said it grinds and brews excellent coffee and is easy to maintain. I hope it lasts a long time.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Nsleave Great product and comparably priced.
This product gets 5 star at our house. Fresh ground coffee aroma filling the air. The only thing missing is the beep that says when the coffee is ready. Our last machine lasted 7 years and worth every penny.

Love this coffee maker. If it came with the thermal pot and filter basket it would have made this coffee maker perfect. Remember, grinders of any kind are loud while grinding the beans. This one is no exception. :o) Makes for a great alarm clock since it is programmable. My husband often shuts the grinder off and uses already ground coffee in the mornings if he wakes up before the grinding starts. LOVE this product and use it several times a day!
