Rated 1 out of 5Â by Joleigh12 The concept is good, the reality is horrible!
I owned one of these coffeemakers a few years ago, and I was hopeful that Cuisinart had improved on their product. The first one I owned started leaking from the bottom after a couple of years, but I dealt with it for months because I loved the concept, that you could have both a coffeemaker and an on-demand hot water dispenser. My daughter and I drink alot of tea, and having hot water available without having to put on a tea kettle was an awesome concept. But when we were constantly having to mop up water that leaked out all over the counter, we threw it away. A few years went by and I thought I would try it again, even though the reviews were iffy. I should have paid attention. This time it immediately started leaking, and the water in the hot water portion boiled and rumbled constantly, and the water ended up boiling out all over the counter. After only 2 weeks, it is going back to the store today. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT!!

I love it! I especially like the hot water system. When my grandkids want hot chocolate, or I want a cup of instant coffee or tea, which I drink a lot of it in the winter evenings, it is priceless. The only negative thing I could say, and it is a small negative, it would be easier to fill the coffee pot reservoir if the coffee and hot water were reversed. Filling the coffee pot with water into the reservoir's small opening on the right, next to the hot water system is a little awkward and you have to be careful of any spills while filling and the hot water system has a larger space to pour water

We bought this machine on January 9th and have used it daily for coffee and almost daily for tea/hot water feature. As of today-the hot water feature on the machine no longer works. I didn't even get two months worth of using the machine. I've always appreciated my Cuisinart coffee makers, love their 4 hour hot plate feature, their hot coffee, the ability to brew a good cup of coffee and wanted to add the hot water feature. I don't think I'll even waste my time buying Cuisinart any longer if they aren't going to last more than a few weeks. Its going back to Kohl's in the morning.

Love that this appliance has a separate chamber for hot water; however, the coffee pot itself is somewhat disappointing. The top does not flip open. It has to be removed for cleaning. And, the counter where the appliance sits gets warm after use.
