Rated 4 out of 5Â by Coolfish Good coffee maker easy to use
Some of the reviews I have seen were really funny. It's a coffee maker people! First it is a 14 cup coffee maker not a 16 cup. So don't put more than the machine is meant for. Second if you want your coffee to be hot and stay hot then ser the plate to stay on for 4 hours and not 2. First time I used this machine I found that the coffe kinda got cooler then I realized that it had been over two hours sonce my last cup and the heating platw had turned off. I set the plate to 4 hours, problem solved. The only drawback on this machine is that the clock does not light up and is kinda hard to see depending on where you place the coffee maker. Other than that it has been working for almost 5 years and so I think we got our moneys worth from it. Would not hesitate to buy it again.

I love this coffee pot, great value and what is most important is is that the coffee is boiling hot!
Rated 2 out of 5Â by America16 Disappointed
This is my third Cuisinart and will be my last. Drips water from the bottom once coffee is made and filter removed. Top lid is not very tight. Filter cannot hold enough for 16 cups...grinds overflow into every crevice. Coffee residue on bottom of cup (never occurred in any of my other pots). Fortunately I still had the lid from my old coffee pot because the new one did not fit tightly Since the reviews of other brands are just as bad I guess I'll have to keep this one. All in all, very sad for this usually reputable brand.
Rated 1 out of 5Â by notworking basket is not big enough for 14 cups
I was so excited to get this nice big coffee pot as my husband drinks the better part of a 12 c and leaves me with 1 and a half cups. Well I tried to figure out how much coffee I needed to make 14 c. The basket to hold the grounds is not big enough for this pot. I then tried to buy extra robust coffee and even beans to strengthen the brew. To make a good cup you have to fill the basket to the brim and then deal with the sludge in the bottom of the pot. Looks good, brews fast, can't make 14 good cups of coffee:(
