Rated 5 out of 5Â by eLcy Excellent brew & HOT coffee, finally!
This coffee maker delivers a delicious cup of coffee. I love a really hot cup of coffee - not warm! And the Cuisinart gives me just that from the first cup to the last. Easy to operate and program, especially, if you like having the smell of fresh coffee to wake you each morning! Ahhhhh..... It uses cone-shaped filters -- which I, mistakenly, thought that I didn't like -- but this unit comes with a permanent gold filter (saves $). Too, I've learned that the cone filter is economical for an added reason, I'm using less coffee. I suppose the cone-shaped filter provides more efficient saturation of coffee grounds. It brews quickly, beeps when ready, AND it's pretty. I bought the white! Finally, it's easy to clean. Just PERFECT!
Rated 5 out of 5Â by d7may Love that it grinds within unit
We have always ground our fresh beans separately; just one extra step and piece of equipment. It was getting to be a pain. So much so, we sometimes bought already-ground, just to avoid this step! We LOVE that grinder unit is integrated within the coffee maker, even when we set the timer for perfect morning coffee the night before!
One slight drawback: the parts have to be thoroughly clean and dry before brewing another pot. It will work if this is not done (as my husband often will not...) but beans do not all grind, and passage between grinder and filter may get clogged.
But we love it 99.9%!
Rated 1 out of 5Â by jfla Terrible design on this coffee maker.
We really disliked this product and taking it back before even using it. The carafe is poorly designed and lid does not come off easily at all. The display is hard to read if it sits on a normal size kitchen counter. We were so frustrated with it before we even tried the first pot of coffee. Received it yesterday and it is going back today.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Gayle47374 Product far exceeded my expectations
I purchased this as a gift for my friend over 5 years ago and it still makes a great, hot pot of coffee. She has made at least 2-3 pots of coffee a day and hasn't had any problems with it. She loves not having to use paper filters and it's very easy to take care of. Now that I have seen for myself how great this product is I plan to purchase one for myself.
