Rated 1 out of 5 by Schlaoner Poor quality
I purchased this product approx. four yrs. ago and used it infrequently. It died last week. Don't waste your money on this inferior product!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Minnie8 DURABILITY BAD...LASTED 3 MONTHS BEFORE DYING
I got on the waiting list when I first saw a Cuisinart square coffee pot. I bought it and loved it. Coffee was hot hot hot and quality was superb with easy clean. Years later, it was looking a little worse for the wear when I remodeled my kitchen, so I went out and bought the EXACT Cuisinart pot that looked new and shiny. Well guess what--that lasted 3 months at most before totally dying. I went out to the garage and hauled in the old one, scrubbed it up and tried to reclaim it. No soap! By that time in a dusty garage, it was dead too which I expected. So now it's between Christmas and New Year's and I'm off to hunt for a new coffee pot. (Like I haven't done enough Christmas shopping already!!!) A French Presspot has saved us the past few days, but we truly need a good coffeemaker at a medium price (at or under the 'one' mark!) It's not going to be a Cuisinart this time, unfortunately. :-(

Rated 2 out of 5 by scarboro75 Hot coffee - short lived product.
We were happy when we purchased this product as the end result was a good hot cup of coffee. We bought three others as Christmas gifts for our children. All four have been in for repair, in some cases multiple times.
Customer service were very helpful and repaired or replaced the coffee makers, however it necessitated a long trip each time to reach the Cuisinart facility. We have a stand-by $35.00 coffee maker which never breaks down. Although the coffee is not quite as hot, the appliance is totally dependable unlike the Cuisinart. Our current replacement Cuisinart has just broken down again and although it is still under warranty, we are opting to search and purchase another brand.

We first used one of these coffee makers at a rental home at the beach 2 years ago. We were sold and requested one for Christmas that year. We've had ours over 2 years and love the coffee it makes. It has a water filter inside that has to be replaced every couple of months, but our water needs filtering, so happy to have that feature. It beeps when the coffee is ready and again when the machine turns off (which you can set to go off anywhere from 30 min. to 4 hours). You can use paper filters, but we've discovered that using the gold tone filter makes a better tasting coffee (especially when you grind your own beans). I sometimes find water underneath when I move it to the back of the counter; not sure why it happens, but not that big of an issue. I just know to wipe underneath after I move it.

Off to get a replacement....ours just broke after almost 20 years!!!....the coffee was fast, hot and always great....a bit awkward to fill due to height, but other than that, a great machine for us....Looking at the new machine in the hot red or matte black...

Rated 5 out of 5 by LikeValue1 This is a good product and value.
It is a good product that performs well. However, where you poor water into the reservoir the opening should be larger. It would also be a plus if the clock lit up to be able to read the time and setting better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by kathhelen My husband loves the diversity of this product.
We threw our Keurig to the curb. I like that this product has the charcoal water filter and coffee filters that we were use to having in previous years. I feel we are getting better coffee from this maker. So far it has been very good.

This has got to be one of the best coffee makers ever. I've had Mr. Coffees before but they never make a truly piping hot cup of coffee nor do they last as long as this Cuisinart. It is a work horse. It's used every day and never skipped a beat. The only downside on an othewise awesome coffee maker is when you go remove the filter/grounds if the unit is still on or has just shut off, the condensation drips off the back. Cuisinart should make a litte trap that sends the water back into the fill area. Today after many years my Cuisinart finally stopped working and now i'm on the way to pick up another one. That's how great this coffee maker is.
