    • 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.

    • I was very pleased when I opened the box. The coffee maker looks fantastic in my kitchen. Most importantly, it makes a great cup of coffee. Better than my less expensive coffee maker. So definitely worth paying a little more. One of the things that sold me on this brand is the 3 year warranty. The other higher end brands only had a 1 year warranty.

    • The coffee tastes good but BEFORE - it is very difficult to get the correct amount of wayer into the machine. You have to look directly over the top to see the fill gauge.

    • While we have only had the coffee maker ~ 2 weeks, we
      have been completely satisfied with the product. It is
      simple to use and makes great coffee. Most reviews
      indicated that the water fill level was the only drawback. Truthfully, since we simply fill the craft to the desired number of cups and then fill the maker from the craft, this has not been a problem for us. A bonus is the maker is compact and astetically pleasing on our counter top.

      It was recommended to us by several friends and I would definitley recommend it to others.

    • I finally found a decent pot that doesnt spill all over when you pour it! When filling with water, it is a little dark back there for undercounter lighting, but its easy to use, program, and makes great coffee.

    • The Brew Central Coffee Maker is a wonderful addition to any kitchen. We love the temperature options, as well as the built-in filter. It has the standards; timer, 12-cup carafe, and grounds basket; but is loaded with features and performance that make it the perfect addition to your home. Let's not forget about how good-looking it is either!

    • I was swayed by the stellar reviews, however, the second time I used it water and coffee sludge overflowed all over my countertop. I am usually very meticulous about following directions so I know it was through no fault of mine. The coffee is OK.
      It's a shame the one unfortunate incident clouded my overall opinion, but usually that's all it takes.

    • Overall it is a good coffee maker. I have three complaints about this coffee maker. One is that filling the tank with water is awkward. The second is that there is no convenient way to remove the gold filter to stop steam from going up through the grounds and affecting the brewed coffee. I must move the entire machine to the edge of the counter to open the top. My previous coffee maker was a Braun. It had a large opening for filling the tank and the basket holder could easily be moved out to remove that filter. The third complaint is that the digital clock is difficult to see. When standing upright, the top portion of the clock is hidden by its own frame.

      While this machine makes good coffee, I probably will not buy another as a replacement because of the inconveniences listed above.

    • This brewer makes a very good cup of coffee in a fairly short amount of time. I especially like the 3 heat settings for the warner. I also like the shape of the carafe--more like a traditional coffee pot, not round & squat, so it feels more balanced when you pour.
