Satisfied with purchase. Two drawbacks: #1. Arthritic hands(fingers) = difficult to open carafe. #2. Recommend you pre-warm the carafe to maximize length of time brewed coffee will stay hot. (hard to do with the timer).

Coffee's good, but......


the pot drives me nuts! It's hard to pour, hard to clean, and invariably gets grounds on top.

Not up to par


This is our second cuisinart coffeemaker and it is not wonderful like the last one which we had for years. The carafe is designed poorly, so in order to pour out last bit of coffee, you have to tip it completely upside down and it invariably splatters....

Unbeatable Brew


We've had the 12 cup model in daily use for 7 years, still going strong. Important to change the water filter inside the pot for optimal brew; we buy these filters in bulk, change once every 5-6 weeks.

Nice when it doesn't leak


I like the insulated carafe. Never have to worry about shutting the pot off. This is the 2nd one we have had. The first one went about a year and started leaking water during the brew. Called the company and paid $30 for another pot. Received it....

I was very hopeful about this machine as it has a thermal carafe and overall fairly good reviews. We'd had a cheapie coffee maker for years (a Black and Decker) that made great coffee but died after about five years. I thought that the Cuisinart would...

Really bad to pour.


I find myself doing some yoga things with my arm to get the last drop. And after turning it off, I have to wait a min. for all the coffee on top of the lid to drip in to the pot or else it will spill all over my counter top when I try to pour the...

Very Pleased with Purchase


I had a Capresso coffeemaker for many years before purchasing this one. One of the features I love about the Cuisinart is that you don't have to open the thermal carafe to pour which, in turn, allows the coffee to remain hotter for a longer period of...

Cuisinart® Black Thermal 10 Cup Coffee Maker


The selling feature on this coffee maker is the thermal, insulated carafe. My husband and I have very different morning schedules and had to make to separate pots of coffee because our previous machine had a glass pot that would burn our coffee. This...

Awesome Coffee


This coffee machine has made mornings so much easier. I love the fact that I can set the timer and it grinds the beans and brews the coffee so I have a cup ready for me when I wake up. The only pain is cleaning the various grinding/ brewing parts but...
