Makes good coffee, but the maintenance is a pain in the neck.
The advantage of automatic grinding is by far outweighted by the nuisances of keeping it working.
We gave up on it after a few months, and bought a simpler, non-automatic, model, avoiding Cuisinart.
The passage of ground coffee to the coffee basket plugs easily. To keep it working, we have to haul out the vacuum cleaner and clean the passage every 6th pot of coffee or so.
Washing the gadget that sits on the coffee basket every time making a pot takes time too
The clever floating "valve" in the top of the pot that I assume is to keep it vapour tight when not actually making or pouring coffee sticks about once a week, and dumps all the new coffee on the counter and floor if it is not being watched. Say 5 minutes clean up time
We have tried washing, vacuuming and brushing the "valve" daily, but it is still unreliable.
The pot keeps coffee hot and fresh very well, but when pouring it is difficult to avoid spillage all arond the cup.
Bottom line, the gadget is more trouble than it is worth, and a waste of money
