  • I have used many Cuisinart products including coffeemakers for years. This is the worst I have bought.

    No outside water window which makes pouring water difficult since one can't see (the old ones are hard enough). The toggles are silly, and it is hard to see the black line on the main switch in order to put it back on "On". I also tried to buy another carafe in white as I always like to have another carafe on hand, but none listed for this model...just black. Very disappointed.

    Cuisinart or whoever owns them now need to go back to the basics and make a better coffeemaker. Appreciate this website asking my opinion. The water window is hard enough to read on the outside, but to put it on the inside is stupid!

  • A great value

    I spent a long time researching coffeemakers to replace my ten-year-old Krups coffeemaker when it broke, and I am glad I finally chose Cuisinart. Because I work in a coffee shop, I am very particular about coffee. This Cuisinart coffeemaker is practical and reasonably-priced without so many of the ridiculous (and unnecessary) features on some of the more expensive models. In my opinion, there is no need to spend more money on a home coffeemaker if you like drip coffee--more bells and whistles do not change the quality, only the amount of hassle and the likelihood of malfunction. Having said that, I would admit that this model has some nice "extra" features, including a programmable brew function (so the coffee is waiting for you when you drag yourself out of bed), as well as an auto shut off feature (so you don't have to worry all day about whether you turned off the coffee pot!). Like some of the other reviewers have mentioned, the water level guage can be a bit tough to read, since it requires looking down inside the water tank (a problem if you are especially short, but otherwise no big deal). While this style of coffeemaker in any brand tends to be somewhat larger than more basic coffeemakers, the Cuisinart is very stylish and doesn't look out of place on the kitchen counter. The stainless steel wipes clean and doesn't show dirt or dust. Really, this was a great purchase, and I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants a quality, reliable coffeemaker that makes a great cup of coffee.

    I recommend this product.

  • It makes very good coffee and we like it a lot. The only thing we miss from other coffee makers is an external guage that tells how much water is in the maker

    I recommend this product.

  • New Coffee Maker

    We have had several different kinds over the years. Ranging from those that grind the beans to those cheap ones. The last one lasted around 8 yrs. We use them every day. This one is smaller in footprint and seems quieter. The only drwback so far is I wish it had a window on the side to see how full the reservour was. You have to look from the top and it is in the back of the machine. Difficult to see. We have had it only 2 weeks so we will see! Seems to make great coffee and I like it's functionality.

    I recommend this product.

  • elegant and does the job

    An elegant, masculine-looking coffee maker, on the tall side but fits under the cabinet, my husband who is the coffee maker in our house, always pours in the water cup by cup so hasn't been bothered by the measuring line being in the inside of the cylinder (as with detergent bottle tops!). Some have mentioned slowness but this did not seem to be the case. We like and use the keep-warm feature which isn't so hot as to evaporate the aromatic oils in the coffee.

    I recommend this product.
