Rated 5 out of 5 by Karen This product is easy to operate
Having had Cuisinart coffee makers before, we wanted to purchase one again. This model is simple to use and looks nice. Brews a good cup of coffee too!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Laura I have this product for 2 days now. The coffee taste terriffic, however, 2 negatives .
Poor design in water reservoir. No side window, you have to peek over the top to see the water level. Also the ready tone indicator, is so low, you have to be next to it to hear it. Once it's ready, there is no indicator light or timer showing that you have a fresh pot of coffee.
Also, they do not provide an extra water filter pod in the package. You have to go out and buy one right away.
Positives, The carafe keeps the coffee hot for a long time, and it taste delicious.

I purchased this coffee maker because I was very happy with my last Cuisinart Coffee Maker, different model. I have only been using it for 4 days. I wanted the thermal carafe and am happy with it. The only thing I do not like is that I have to watch inside the water reservoir when I fill it up versus looking at the side so I don't overfill.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Bengelina Cuisinart makes best-tasting coffee
Having tried many coffee makers throughout the year and experimenting with different brands of coffee, once we found the Cuisinart, that was it. It doesn't matter which brand of coffee, it always tastes good. Our first Cuisinart lasted for 5 years, the next lasted only 6 months, both had the problem with water leaking all over the counter. We recently purchased this model, the height was one of the decision makers, as it now fits under our counter. It makes excellent coffee. We have no problem with the coffee not staying hot for hours, as we only like freshly brewed coffee anyways. We are hoping that we won't have any problems with water leaks as with the other models. We read many reviews on a variety of other brands, every single one had their problems. After tasting the first cup of coffee from this newly purchased Cuisinart, we were satisfied that we made the right choice. We love the Thermal, as quite a few of our glass carafes (other brands) broke throughout the years. Our fault, but this Thermal carafe can't break, another big plus!

Rated 4 out of 5 by RoninPS Makes good coffee but has basic design flaw
I shopped around a lot during the Black Friday sales period and only looked for deals on coffee makers with thermal pots. Penny's had a great sale on this coffee maker making it hard to resist. I must admit the coffee maker makes very good coffee so it met my expectations for coffee quality, but Cuisinart should have spent a bit more time and money making the water level and reservoir easier to access and view...the water level gauge is within the water reservoir itself and only viewable from above - not from the side through a clear window. I had to look at the instructions to find it because it was not visible from the exterior - bizarre! Access for pouring water in was also a little difficult but I found a work around by measuring the water first in a large glass measuring cup and then pouring the predetermined amount of water into the coffee maker - that saved a LOT of frustration !!

With our rewards and coupon, the coffeemaker is a good buy and the product works great. We like the thermal coffee pot.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Luvsales This product not for me
I will be returning this product, it has no showing on how many cups you are making. This product is not for me.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Dr2J Doesn't get the coffee hot enough
We bought this Cuisinart Coffee Maker knowing my mom has had the same unit for a number of years without issues or complaints. I also checked online with other owners and found most were satisfied. Well, the FIRST one arrived fast. Tried it out and found the coffee barely warm through two batches. Took it back to Penney's (easy exchange), and tried another one. At least this one gets the coffee fairly hot, not as hot as we like or even as hot as our old Kitchen Aid. Not sure what I am going to do, probably take it back and get a different model. We do like the stainless carafe and the simple controls.
