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 BtPowers Excellent coffee, even after 4 years
My wife and I bought this coffee maker after our previous one failed shortly after moving into our new home. I was concerned with the maintenance initially but have found that I only need to clean out the grinder portion once a week if that. I drink 2 pots of coffee at home per day and have never been disappointed, friends and family always comment how good the coffee is. I'm very happy to see that they're still being sold, I'll purchase another one when this one finally fails. It was the most expensive coffee maker we've ever purchased, but considering how long it's lasted, it's been well worth it.
Rated 3 out of 5Â by RNSusie Great features - BUT, carafe leaks
The first one I bought approx 2 yrs ago - grinder broke (despite regular cleanings per manufacturer instructions). Thanks to Kohl's excellent customer service it was replaced no problem. After the first cup is poured the stainless carafe leaks with every subsequent pour unless you barely trickle the coffee out. !st unit had the same issue. I've spoken to Cuisinart and they claim there are no other complaints about this problem - odd that I ended up with the only 2 pots in the world to leak! For the $$ of the unit you think they could fix this issue!
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Missynoelle 12 cup, has bean reservoir, and grind feature.
Previously we had the 10 cup grind and brew with metal carafe which was actually still working after 7 years! We loved the coffee flavor from that one, but are happy to now have a larger carafe and the reservoir for the beans.
Cleaning the chute every 7-10 days is very easy and not a problem. I probably do it about every 5 days or so whenever it is empty or almost empty. This one actually has fewer parts to wash each day than our previous one.
Great coffee pot!
