I disagree completely with the negative review by Mary. I've been using this coffee maker for three years now and it's been excellent. Folks, you have to clean a coffee maker. No big deal. Yes, this has five parts to clean. Takes about one minute and you're good to go. This is a solid machine and makes a great pot of coffee. I love the internal grinder and were it not so loud, I'd give the product five stars. I don't know why Mary has such issues with it. The pot is not that heavy and I can usually tell by feel how much is left. It keeps the coffee hot most of the day in fact. And the top couldn't be easier to get off. I don't get the issues. Maybe if cleaning a coffee maker is an issue, the best option is to go to Starbucks. But if you want a great coffee maker, I recommend this one.

With a name like Cuisinart, we expected the best. Unfortunately, that is not what we got. The coffee grinder gets clogged up. The lid for the coffee filter requires you to match up a minuscule black arrow on a black background -- tricky at the best of times and hopeless for anyone who wears glasses. The coffee pot is heavy and awkward, and impossible to tell when it is half-full or empty. The lid for the pot is difficult to move or remove, making pouring very awkward. In fact, there is nothing good about it. Buy a cheap coffee maker and a cheap coffee griner. You will be much happier.

HASH(0x9f7a5648) out of 5 stars Love it! Aug. 22 2006
By Ambrocia - Published on
We just got this coffee pot at Costco for $99 and LOVE IT! It takes a little more work getting set up than our old Mr. Coffee pot. You have to clean the grinding components each time for optimal taste - that is why I only gave it 4 stars. But the extra time is worth it. The coffee tastes amazing and it is ready when we wake up in the morning. I haven't experienced any leaking problems like I have heard about.

HASH(0x9f7a5a50) out of 5 stars RUN AWAY!!! Jan. 16 2007
By Kimberli Baker - Published on
You might be tempted, Cuisinart typically makes great products. But, unless you actualy ENJOY cleaning your coffee maker for an hour every time you make coffee, and unless you LIKE having coffee grounds floating around in large quantities in your cup, this is NOT the machine you want.

In fact, it's so bad that after about 4 brewing cycles, you'll pack the stupid thing up and give it to some poor, unsuspecting friend or family member, who, after about 4 brewing cycles, will realize why you gave it to them. Then they'll cuss you, and pass the coffee maker off to some other poor sap. Eventually the damn thing will make the rounds and get re-gifted back to you, and you'll be exactly where you started.

So, to save yourself, your friends, and your family a whole lot of time and heartache playing hot-potato with this stupid machine, take my advice... PICK OUT A DIFFERENT COFFEE MAKER!!!!!

By the way, every time you make coffee, you will swear the machine is going to explode. It makes the most violent, disturbing sounds I've ever heard come out of a healthy piece of kitchen equipment. Seriously. Horror-movie quality sound effects...

NOTE: this is a true story, up to and including the re-gifting part... when I got the damn thing offered back to me, I had to post this review. CAVEAT EMPTOR! (or TEMPUS FUGIT or QUID PRO QUO or some other goofy Latin phrase))

HASH(0x9fd34e94) out of 5 stars Some bad features Nov. 15 2006
By SunnyV - Published on
I also bought this product[...]. It makes good hot coffee but there are a few things I think could be improved upon. The grinding components need to be cleaned each time you use it because moisture from the brewing process goes up into that area and the coffee residue gets wet. The thermal pot is very nice but needs to be turned at an uncomfortable angle when pouring, especially when there is only a small amount of coffee left, and this can be problem for people that are physically challenged.
Lastly the grinder is extremely noisy, and doesn't shut off immediatly when the grinding process is complete, which can be a problem if your kitchen is close to your bedroom and you set the auto feature to brew coffee before you get up.

HASH(0x9f7a5ac8) out of 5 stars What is all the whining about? July 8 2009
By Kindle Customer - Published on
So, there seems to be alot of whining in the review column for this coffee maker. The product is fine. It works, it brews good coffee, and it only takes twenty seconds to clean the grinding section, and the thermal design is a good safety feature. Its really beyond me what the people who give it a bad review expect or are trying to accomplish.

HASH(0x9f7a5e4c) out of 5 stars Mixed feelings Oct. 24 2009
By Stuart Quirk - Published on
I've used this coffee maker for the last 2 years and *mostly* liked the features and contemplated buying a new model to replace my current model which is having worsening issues with filter basket mechanism (hoping the following complaints may have been fixed or idiosyncratic to my unit). The basket required a hefty shove to click so it won't pop out during brewing. This is one of the worse features about the design--every so often the basket pops out during brewing and, say you are in the shower while brewing, you come out to a horrifying mess.
Strangely, my carafe also leaks from the top when I pour. Even without the top screwed in. So smaller messes on regular basis. Finally, as others note, the unit *requires* cleaning every time. The build up of grinds is such that you can't really get away with skipping a cleaning. In fact, I took to drying the bean grinder compartment before use as, when it is damp or wet, more grinds stick to the walls of the grinding compartment (wasting coffee and making the next clean up a little messier).
I have been pleased with the all-in-one aspect of the coffee maker, the quality of the coffee has never been a problem, and thermal carafes are the only way to go as far as I can see. I just went with a Zojirushi maker with a thermal carafe and find that it retains heat better/longer than this make (and doesn't spill!).
