Rated 5 out of 5 by JayCee Best coffeemaker EVER
We purchased this coffeemaker just under a year ago and have found it to be the best coffeemaker we have ever owned... The very best feature in my opinion is the brew time... you have both the regular brew and the strong brew... It is a tiny bit slower than a regular coffee maker but this is absolutely no problem as the coffee comes out perfect every time. Other features I really liked are the shorter cord (and wrap away).. small batches (1-4 cups).. extended warming plate (2-4 hours)..bell feature for both ready and finished.. water filter (for smoother taste)..it is very easy to clean.. you can actually fit your hand inside to wipe off any stains.. and of course the 14 cups. Unfortunately, it gave up the ghost just short of one year.... and I misplaced my sales receipt (bummer)
You may think this is a rather flattery review, but I felt I had to try to counteract the opinion of the other reviewer for completely failing the machine because of a sprung spring.
If you decide to buy this machine, you will love it...

Rated 1 out of 5 by Lucgg Lid breaks very easily
I bought this coffee maker in Aug 2014. After a few months of use the lid broke. We replaced the unit in Nov 2014. As of Feb 2015, the lid spring is broken again despite the fact we took extra care shutting the lid on the coffee maker.
On a positive side it makes very good coffee.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Potash Very poorly made
Bought first one in 2013. It lasted almost 9 months. Replaced under warranty. Second one lasted 5 months. Replaced again under warranty. this one lasted almost 3 months. Time to try a different model.

Rated 1 out of 5 by shopper4454 I do not recommend this product
Have purchased Cuisinart coffee makers in the past and was thoroughly satisfied. This one, however, fell apart after bout a year of use. First the springs in the lid, now a rubber gasket is falling out where the coffee drips down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by rlac12 Good to the last drop
I've had Cuisinart coffee makers for years and have never had any trouble, the same goes for this one. The only drawback is filling the water, I can never quite get the last 1/2 in the reservoir without spilling it but that has more to do with the size of the coffee pot being larger (14-cup).

Rated 2 out of 5 by Budhardt3 Garbage
We've had this machine for a couple of years. After 6 months the lid spring broke, but, hey, we could live with that. But, now, in the last 2 months it has slowly started leaking when you set up the night before. The last 3 mornings we have a counter covered with water. This morning it had run onto the floor and my 14cup coffee maker only made 9 cups. I mopped up the other 5 cups. Looking for a new coffee maker.........a different brand.

Bought this to replace my 12 yr old Cusinart (it was fantastic). Eight months post purchase and the spring loaded lid gave up the gost. One of the cheap plastic spring tabs broke making the lid operation difficult, this AM the second pin broke. Disappointed beyond belief, the device is literally useless now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mydoodles Simple to set and makes great coffee
I have the one like this but with the thermal pot. I love it and intend on buying this style too. Wish JCP would get the one with the thermal pot. The style is so easy to set and simple to understand. I totally disagree with the one review about the "cheap" plastic. The coffeemaker is well made so don't let the plastic on it detour you from making a purchase. Love everything about this Cuisinart coffeemaker and believe me I've bought several style and made the comparison. Great sale price too.
