    • 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

    • 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.

    • We love it.

      We like the no-drip pot. The coffee maker is not loud at all. We love the feature that beeps when the coffee is done and the beep when it shuts off. We prefer this to the stainless steele models because it shows zero fingerprints. Very nice. No problems at all.

    • Bad, burned coffee

      This coffee maker was one of the worst I have ever bought. After following directions on cleaning the pot/maker I made the first pot of coffee. It was very plastic-y tasting and so I thought it was just because the pot was new. Two pots of coffee later, it still had an awful, burned, plastic flavor for every cup. Wish they still made the old Braun we used. Ended up buying DeLonghi.

    • Great Coffee Maker..Love it!

      I love this coffee maker and I also love the three year warrant on the coffee maker which you do not find that often. Our morning and evening coffee are great and hot just the way we like it...hot hot coffee. No leakage and no problems. The option of 1-4 cups works great and does give a more flavorful coffee and the temperature selection for the pot is great the coffee is smoking hot which we love.

    • Brew Central Coffee Maker meets expectations

      We have been very, very pleased with our Brew Central Coffee Maker by Cuisinart. It replaced a 2-year-old coffee maker that didn't live up to our expectations and started leaking several months ago. The programming instructions are very understandable, the coffee maker itself is very aesthetically appealing (it is staying in sight on the counter!), and the coffee it makes is just what my husband ordered. We have hopes it will last longer than our previous coffee maker! We were very pleased with the quick service, as always, from Cooking.com, as well as the price. Thanks, Cooking.com!

      Okay, I never would have guessed that coffee flavor would improve because I purchased this Cuisinart coffee maker. Guess what? I was wrong. We can't wait to wake up to fresh coffee everyday. From the first cup we tasted the difference between our old Hamilton Beach coffee maker and the brew from the Cuisinart. Talk about the difference between night and day!

    • Great Brewed Coffee

      I am very pleased with this coffee maker. It has all the features I am interested in.
      This is the second exact coffee maker we have ordered. The coffee is brewed just right, the cleaning and pouring water into the container does not spill, like other pots. The auto settings are very user friendly and the auto on allows you up to 4 hours of keeping the coffee hot. The stainless finish shows no fingerprints, I would definitely recommend.

    • Very fashionable

      I had been looking for a Stainless and White coffee pot for quite some time. I needed to replace a Mr. Coffee that continually leaked after filling. (Which is another story...I'll never buy again) I was very pleased to find that Cooking.com offered a few variations of what I wanted. It was easy to order, shipped quickly, and I am very satisfied with the overall appearance and performance. I would highly reccommend Cuisinart. I did read other reviews before making my purchase. It helps. I also read that a couple were not too happy with POURING the water into the tank/fill area. I don't see a problem with it at all. The lid fits/snaps securely on the carafe. No spilling!! Wonderful product. I would purchase one for a gift if a coffee pot was on his/her wish list. : )

    • Love this coffee maker, much better than the Braun it replaced. One complaint is it can be difficult pouring the water in, if you aren't careful you can easily get some of the water where the coffee grounds go. But if you are careful and not in a hurry it is fine!

    • Cuisinart Coffee maker has some design flaws

      On the positive side, this coffee maker quickly makes a pot of really good-tasting coffee. It is very flavorful and pleasing. I replaced my 20 year old Bunn with this machine and I'm delighted with the brew.

      On the negative side, there are problems. The opening for water is small and it's easy to spash water onto the grounds. To avoid this, I use a funnel but that's just one more appliance required and Cuisinart should widen the opening. Pouring from the coffee pot just doesn't work

      Also it's impossible to use the water guage to determine the fill as it's placed well inside the maker. Another marked container for water fill is necessary for measurement.

      And I don't like the snap-on lid for the pot. Once I hadn't completely snapped it on even though I thought It was tight and it fell off while I was pouring out coffee with messy results.

      The disign with a lot of brushed stainless is busy. The look would be improved with mostly color (plastic) and the cost would be lower. I bought the white.

      If I didn't love the coffee, I'd have returned the item.
