Rated 3 out of 5Â by CarefreeJerry Carafe is not thermal
What looks like a stainless steel thermal carafe is not thermal. The coffee maker has a hot plate, which keeps the coffee warm for 30 minutes. A good thermal carafe will keep coffee HOT for several hours - WITHOUT additional heat.
The reservoir opening is too small and poorly located for a left-handed user.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by LJONZ Love This Coffee Pot - Every Cup Tastes Fresh!!
This coffee maker is the perfect size for my husband and myself. Love the thermal carafe and automatic shut-off feature. It is true what some reviewers have said regarding the temperature of the coffee. Since the coffee maker shuts off immediately once it is brewed, the carafe is not sitting on a warming plate. This is a good feature; 1) never worry if you forgot to shut of the coffee pot, and 2) never drink a burnt cup of coffee. However, if you are going to add COLD milk/creamer, your cup of coffee will not be hot. To correct this, I simply warm up my creamer. I would rather do this, than have a burnt tasting cup of coffee. This coffee maker is a keeper for us.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by Pede5 Makes great coffee but doesn't keep it hot.
This coffee pot is easy to program and use. The coffee tastes great as long as you clean it and change the filter when it tells you to. The only thing we don't like is the thermal pot. The coffee does not stay hot for very long. It is luke warm within an hour. Also, because you can't see through the pot we have accidentally brewed a new pot of coffee when there was already some in the pot and had major overflows. Our fault but when you're making coffee in the morning in a hurry, you don't always think to check. We are going to buy one with a glass pot and heating plate. Will still stick with Cuisinart.

Cuisinart Programmable 10-Cup Thermal Coffee Maker is a good coffee maker. One drawback is that the hot plate does not stay hot; therefore, my husband needs to microwave his cup of coffee after pouring it from the carafe. The coffee maker looks good sitting on the counter and the coffee tastes good. Part of the new coffee maker learning curve was for my husband to remember to empty the leftover coffee before making a new pot. You wouldn't think coffee could get inside your kitchen cabinets and then inside casserole dishes when it overflows its carafe. Can you tell my husband is the coffee maker?
