Rated 5 out of 5Â by ImWiccan I loves this product
I became a coffee hound in Italy. I love my burr and grind, as it makes me my strong, hot coffee all day long. I did purchase it in 2001 (?), and I have have had four, and they have all been replaced, this one has not. It has recently started leaking from the bottom, still makes my coffee, but leaks from a front side. I called customer service at Cuisinart, and they told me they wouldn't repair it or referre me to a shop that could, they said I would have to buy a new one, since mine was out out warranty and no one would bother to help me. If I knew what to do I would take a look, as I just re-built our wood pellet stove and now we have heat!
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Suzie Love this coffee maker
This coffee maker has been making great coffee for us since 2008. We have had no problems with it whatsoever. The coffee tastes delicious and fresh because the beans don't get ground until you use it; and the thermal carafe keeps it tasting fresh, because the coffee stays hot without getting baked.
You definitely should try to keep the chute clean. Every time we fill the grinder, or every other time, depending on how oily the coffee beans are, we pull off the coffee bean bin, and brush out the chute. The grounds from oilier (darker) beans really stick together sometimes and I think if we didn't do that, the grounds would tend to compact and cause problems.

We have had two of these machines now. We love the grinder (burr). We did a lot of research before finding and buying this machine. However we still have one complaint that they need to fix on this machine. We have had the bean hopper break on us 3 times now, and let me tell you that it is frustrating, time consuming and costly to keep replacing time and again. The need to replace the fixtures with metal not plastic!!!! The plastic pieces keep snapping when you lock and unlock the hopper to remove it and clean the machine out, the beans get in the way and "snap"! The next thing you know you are on this site.... :(
Rated 3 out of 5Â by Cinmcgr great coffe maker for all in all.
This is a great coffee maker. However, cleaning it is hard and you need a flashlight to see inside. Also because you have to clean it so often, We have had to replace the hopper twice as the part that tightens it breaks from opening so much.
