Rated 5 out of 5 by Rosesncoffeeplease LOVE THIS ONE!!!
I love coffee and have had many coffeemakers over the years, this one is the best! Solid and well designed. Hot coffee or hot tea? Either or both. Water works for cooking too, need hot water? Push the button. Want instant oatmeal or other hot cereal for breakfast, push the button. Hot cocoa mix? You got it! Easy and makes GREAT coffee too. I have noticed the coffee to be smoother and more refined in taste. I LOVE the reusable filter, no paper, and no sludge or grounds in the pot. Will recommend and buy again and again. Best on the market in my opinion. Out-performs Bunn, Krupps, and Zojirushi. Penney's $40 cheaper than other big brand dept stores... same product, no coupon needed here. The program button works like a dream. Hot coffee when you wake up or while you get ready is often a necessity. You can program the hotplate to go off as soon as the brew cycle is over. Just set it to zero (00:00). I do not like the taste of over-warmed coffee and that function is a MUST for me. Looks great, easy to set programs, easy to use.

Our family loves this coffee maker. One side for my husband and one side for me when I drink tea! Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by OHcruzsuz Couldn't be happier
I had been looking to replace our coffee pot and decided to give this one a try based on all of the positive reviews. It was out of stock and I had to wait a short time to receive it but it was well worth the wait. I am very pleased with the whole product and some of the reasons for that are,:
1. The coffee stays hot-the adjustable temp selection for the hot plate is great
2. The coffee pot beeps when it is done brewing and when it is shutting off
3. I don't know what they did but Cuisinart made a coffee pot that does not drip. From the first cup to the last, I no longer have to stand over the kitchen sink to pour.
4 The lid on the pot is great. No more hinged lid. I had to replace my carafe twice for broken tabs on the pot. This one snaps on and fits snuggly. Hope it lasts.
5. I have used the hot water dispenser a few times now and it is really nice for that one cup of tea or hot chocolate.
I highly recommend this product!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by flucrew had high hopes
Our old coffee maker had given up the ghost. We have gone through quiet a number in our time and wanted a quality brand. We had not bought a Cuisinart before, and will not be purchasing one again. It looks beautiful and the added feature of the hot water reserve would be perfect for my morning oat meal. My husband set it up and poured water into the reserve. It immediately started to pour the water all over the floor. After cleaning up 12 cups of water, my husband checked it over, made sure everything was as it was supposed to be and tried filling it again, this time over the sink. Again, a sieve. I called the 1-800 number for Cuisinart Customer Service. I was told they would send a replacement out however they needed the broken unit returned and I would have to pay the shipping and handling. On a product of theirs that DOES NOT WORK.
I will be returning their defective product to jcpenny's and buying another brand.

This coffeemaker and hot water dispenser is just what I was looking for. The heating pad temperature control allows me to keep the coffee piping hot but not burnt. Being able to adjust the auto shutoff from 2 to 4 hours allows me to finish the pot before it's cold (and the last cup tastes as good as the first). The hot water dispenser is perfect for my daughter to mix her chai tea latte to take with her to school in the morning, and I no longer have an excuse to not eat hot instant oatmeal for breakfast in the morning. Late night cup of tea or one of the new high quality instant coffees? No problem. Plus, the appliance is very attractive on the counter. The only problem (which really isn't a problem at all) is the bright blue lights hurt my eyes when I go into a dark kitchen. I'll live with it. Best purchase I've made in a long time.

Rated 1 out of 5 by bss794 Really was hoping this one was as good as all the reviews
We bought this after reading all the great reviews. I don't drink a lot of coffee at home, but my husband drinks it every day. After a few weeks I finally tried to make a cup of hot cocoa and it tasted like plastic. Horrible. Had to throw away. I tried a cup of coffee and it also tasted like plastic. Not sure why my husband could not taste it. I ran some vinegar through it a few times and rinsed it with plain water about 4 times. Tried again and still tastes like plastic. The next time I just smelled the water and it had a bad smell to it. I tried bottled water and still the same. I have to return it and I am really bummed because I love everything else about this coffee maker. I was really excited when we got this one. Back to researching.
