After seeing this item be purchased by another division, we decided to buy one as well. When looking for a new coffee pot we didn't even think about looking for one to have a hot water dispenser. So when we saw the other group's new Cuisinart we knew that is what we wanted.
1 month later, we are so happy with our new coffee maker and hot water dispenser. The amount of time we aren't wasting going to the shared break room down the hall to use the microwave to heat up water is great. I actually have been more apt to bring in oatmeal and tea instead of going to a hop and getting it made for me. So not only was it a great cost it has offered great savings.
Rated 1 out of 5Â by Michael1832 Leaks from design/quality flaw
Same as others reported. Leaked on the first rinse run of plain water. Shame, as I had high hopes for the hot water feature. The leak is on the seal underside of the drip opening. Either it is a design flaw or a QA problem. Don't care, it goes back. So much for the Cuisinart name.I really wanted this product to work, but back to searching for another coffee maker. Didn't last long enough to test the "coffee infused" hot water feature, so I can't confirm that.
Rated 3 out of 5Â by Hotwater Shuts off and Leaks!
I purchased 3 of these coffee makers, just hoping that the next one would be one that worked properly. The coffee side works great - no issues. The hot water dispenser side is another story. The first one I bought just leaked all the time. On the 2nd and also the 3rd one I purchased the red (add water) light kept coming on, even though there was plenty of water in it -then it would shut itself off - so no hot water. I tried everything I could think of to make this work, less water, more water, emptying and refilling. . . just could not make this work. I am very sad this did not do what it is supposed to do, because the concept is unique and wonderful for households like mine with tea and coffee drinkers. thank you Kohls for your great return policy!

I really like my new coffee maker. I had an old Cusinart, with the same water filtration, and needed to replace it. The water part is neat because my husband doesn't drink coffee, yet will occasionally make himself some hot chocolate. Also my mother in law will only drink freeze dried coffee. The only downside is if the water is filled to high (to the top level--at the full mark), it will leak out the sides if you move the coffee maker. I move it every morning to place the coffee beans--if front of the top cupboards, then push back to set up against the back wall. No problem is I only fill the water half to two thirds way.
