    • MOST HELPFUL REVIEWS:

    • 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!

    • 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.

    • 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.

    • Cuisinart Coffee Maker

      My old Cuisinart finally bit the dust after 6 years of use (2 pots a day). I have tried many other brands over the years, and most of them only would last a little over a year before they would burn out. I am very impressed with the quality of the Cuisinart!!!

    • I bought this to replace the exact same model. The previous coffee maker lasted about 14 months before it died, but I think a power surge killed it. We are very happy with the quality of the coffee. This maker is a great value and looks very nice on the counter top. Can't beat the value!

    • Good Coffee Maker but...

      I like this coffee maker; however, there are a few things that I wish I had known before purchasing this unit.
      1) On the control panel the markings are hard to see as they are small and written in white.
      2) The clock is very small and also hard to read.
      3) The unit is 14 inches tall which makes pouring water into the reservoir a little difficult especially if you are short.

      Overall, I would say this is a wonderful coffee maker. Just wish the control panel was easier to read. Love the audible tone when brewing is completed.

      I recommend this product.

    • An execptional coffee maker...

      I purchased this item for my wife because she enjoys coffee much more than I do. She is very happy with the controls and brewing features and enjoys the final product. Bottom line, if she's happy I'm happy.

    • great coffee pot.

      We like this coffee pot very much. The coffee stays hot and it is easy to clean. We read about how you couldnt see the level in the water resevoir but it really isnt an issue. Will look at the Cuisnart brand the next time i need a kitchen appliance.

    • Need a Coffee grinder

      This makes great coffe.. You will need a sparate grinder if you use coffee beans. Coffee beans store much better than ground coffee.

    • Great coffee maker

      I find this coffee maker attractive to look at and I like the special features, e.g. option on smaller pots of coffee and control of coffee temperature. It's a very good value for the cost and much better made than my last coffee maker which cost even more.

    • happy morning jumpstart

      My daughter has this coffee maker, so every time I visited her, I was aware of how much better the product was than what I was using. She directed me to a sale and I purchased the coffee pot for a very reasonable price. I love everything about it, and since making coffee is the first thing I do every morning, it helps me start the day with a predictably
      good experience. These days we are all coffee snobs because it's one inexpensive product that can change our day. I've owned a dozen coffee makers in my long life, and this is the best.

    • We ordered because of the brand, the price, and the color. So far we are very pleased. Took a little practice to get the amount of coffee just right, but we think we are now close to having it to suit us, and we think we are going to be very pleased with the purchase.

    • One Problem with the Cusinart Coffeemaker

      I've been using the Cusinart 12 cup programmable Coffeemaker for years. When my 6 yr old one had an issue --I didn't hesitate to buy a new one.

      The glass carafe on this Cusinart 12 cup programmable leaks like mad, no matter how tight you snap the lid on or hold it in the middle. I'm so sorry I threw
      my old carafe away by mistake, as it didn't do this. I think this is a matter of 'quality control' and it's so annoying. I'd like to write the manufacturer and let them know. I hope you do....

    • Excellent design, But

      First of all, this is a good drip coffee maker ---- The only problem I have with this drip coffee is every part that comes in contact with the water and coffee during the brewing process is made of plastic. Hot plastic gives off an odor and effects taste. That is the same reason I buy soft drinks in glass bottle - for the taste. I think this is the main reson a French Press makes such good coffee --- All that being said, this is still the best drip coffee maker I have owned in this price range.
