Rated 2 out of 5Â by hoth2olover I love this machine but has a serious design flaw
DO NOT BUY! this is a fantastic machine and I loved it originally but it was a serious design flaw. I am now reading countless reviews as confirmation that it is not just a singular situation. Makes great coffee, very hot coffee and hot water dispenser concept is a dream for tea, oatmeal, noodle soups...and much safer for the kids than a kettle.
However, the water dispenser imparts a terrible flavor to the water. I have cleaned repeatedly with copious amounts of water, and vinegar solutions to no avail. The water does not sit in the dispenser for any length of time so it is not that it's stagnant. It must be possible to make this idea work though....consider a kettle that can sits for days and days without water being emptied with no ill effects???
I am quite disappointed but the taste is so strong that it is not possible to use.
Please fix Cuisinart...I love this model but it is unusable in it's current form.
Rated 2 out of 5Â by TuggersMom Such A Disappointment
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.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by Bill Great product, love the features! One defect tho.
What sold me on this model is the hot water dispenser. I'm the only one in my family that drinks coffee, but we all drink tea, hot chocolate, etc.. so I'm really happy with the hot water dispenser instead of having to boil it or microwave water to heat it up for tea.
There is a defect with this model though, sometimes water leaks out from the seam underneath where the hot water is dispensed. It only does it if you put any pressure on the front of it. However, because I store it at the back of the counter which has cupboards directly above it, I move it forward when I make coffee (to be able to open the top flap), and when I'm done, I push it to the back of the counter again.
The reason I know this is a defect is because I returned my original purchase to the store and got a replacement, and this one does the same thing.
Other than that, this model is awesome!

We have well water and have never found a coffee pot that had lasted without becoming slow and needing constant cleaning. This has filters that you must buy separately however it has lasted longer than any pot we have ever purchased. It has a timer and with the added hot water dispenser the kids use it constantly for cup of soup, and hot chocolate. It is the best coffee pot we have ever owned.
