Four times now I have forgotten to place the lid on the basket where the coffee ground go. Instead of a beep warning, like the one it sounds if you forget to put the whole beans in, it just spills all over the counter. If there is an assembly warning light, they should utilize it for the entire assembly. Also, it has a pop-in style basket (which is quite flimsy), and twice now it has popped out during brewing. Another mess all over the counter. Hopefully I can return this coffee pot, otherwise, I will have to make a check list for my less-than-optimal-brain in the mornings.

We've had this coffee maker for a little over a year. I loved the sleek style, grinding feature, and the fact that it is Cuisinart. I thought Cuisinart made quality coffee makers. But, just like some of the previous reviews, our basket began popping out during the brewing cycle, which does not stop brewing. Instead, the unit keeps brewing coffee all over the counter and the floor if left unattended (like when using programming function). This one is going back to Cuisinart with a quality control recommendation for this issue.

This coffee pot makes excellent coffee, but there are too many pieces. The grinder has 2 pieces to clean and the basket where the grinds go has 3 pieces to clean every day! The grinder works well and you can use regular ground coffee too; however, when you use regular grinds the grinder get condensation. Then it must be taken apart and dried before you try to grind beans the next time. Taking the grinder out is not an option as it doesn't work without it. If you are looking for something simple, don't buy this model.
