Rated 4 out of 5 by Faith Excellent, full-featured machine
I go this for Christmas in 2013. I use filtered water in the reservoir and I have had no problems with it. Everyone thought I was NUTS for wanting one, and now everyone in the family uses it. Not only for coffee, but also tea, cuppa soup, hot chocolate, and whatever else we can think of. The ONLY complaint that I have is that this thing is FULLY programmable - so why not allow the temperature to be raised to higher than 192 deg.? Why not 201, for better black tea and coffee outside of K-pods?
I can see having the default set lower, but why not allow a higher temperature with a warning if your legal department requires it. That option would make it the perfect machine.
Otherwise, I LOVE IT. I like that I can set the defaults to my preferences, and still modify on the fly for those times when I need a change - smaller cup, lower temp for herbal tea, changing the times for energy saving shut downs at night. I like that I can do a quick rinse before making tea after brewing coffee, and go straight into tea mode by pressing the hot water button without having to lift the lid first. So many useful features.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LongIslandDad Better than my Breville
After four years, my beloved Breville K-cup machine pump is working intermittently, so I replaced it with the Cuisinart model. While the Breville's design is more sleek, the Cuisinart design is quite attractive and has a classic appeal. The Cuisinart model features delighters such as: hot water dispensing and a water filter. I am generally not a fan of its blue backlit screen, for it is harder to read than a white backlit screen, but that is a trivial point. The unit heats more quickly than my former Breville and appears to be working as advertised. The Cuisinart, like the Breville, boasts a quality feel. Given that Breville discontinued its k-cup machine, I believe that the Cuisinart is a superior replacement overall with more features, a competitive price and an attractive design to boot.

Bought this Four years ago. About amonth ago it started acting up and finally today it took forever to get a cup of coffee. I descaled it every month, so I guess that is why it lasted for four years. I was very happy with it while it worked.

Rated 5 out of 5 by W8out Great machine
We got our Cuisinart approx 3-4 yrs ago and have probably brewed between 14000 - 16000 cups of coffee. We don't use tap water (bottled only), and have de scaled maybe 3 times. Sorry to say that it is on its' last legs though but we will replace with same model. :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by JS1977 Best Quality Brewer on the Market
I bought this model in October 2010 after going through two Keurig Platinum brewers, and it's still working. The first Keurig Platinum was replaced under warranty when it was less than a year old. The replacement one was barely used and also failed in under a year. So I bought the Cuisinart. It's starting to pump water slowly and makes some funny noises now, but I can't complain as it's almost 5 years old. Definitely worth the money! You get what you pay for.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Golfinmomma In love but disappointed
had machine for a year and a half, and I loved it, even bought one for my sister for Xmas. Sorry I did as I gott up in morning and turned it on and it just made a grinding noise and leaked out all the water that was in it. Ruined the table it sat on and floor was covered in water.
