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. :-(

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.

I am a big coffee drinker. I make an average of 8 half pots each day, so I put the Brew Central to the test! With that amount of coffee, the Brew Central tends to wear out after a few years. I have replaced this model every three years, approximately, but always come back to the same model because it works well and is a good value. It's easy to clean and the taste quality continues to be top-notch.

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.

I had nothing but great results with this coffeemaker and after years of dependable service, am replacing it with the same model. Plus features are the water filter and the adjustable heat on the plate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cindyml I Love this machine!
I had bought this same coffee maker 5 yrs ago (earlier model before they added the Self Clean Indicator)...and paid $10.00 more back then! It stopped working a month ago only because I dropped it while cleaning it. I bought a high end Mr. Coffee that over-flowed, caraffe that dripped every time...and had to deal with a messy 'water-filter' that sat ontop of the grounds everytime I made new coffee. I was having to use more coffee grounds to get a stronger flavor. After the 2nd day...I started searching for this Cuisnart... lucked out it went on sale..... Yep....works as great as my old one!
