Makes Me Coffee, Is My Friend


Newegg gave a good deal, and provided it's usual excellent service. They are my first stop when buying my PC hardware, and now they'll be where I look for my small appliances as well.

Bought this in a surge of anger after my $40 coffee maker died of cheapness. (As I actually fix commercial coffee equipment for a living, my attempt to fix the cheap piece of garbage only made me angrier. You do get what you pay for. Do not pay for...

The only thing on here that gave me pause was the on/off button/selector knob. It just feels a little cheap. Still, it does continue to work, months down the road - so I should probably stop giving it the stink eye every time I press the wobbly little...

Do not buy


The coffee maker makes coffee alright but you don't know where the settings are after 1 month.

Makes coffee

After 1 month all the numbers and letters came off the face, customer service sucks, no help at all on warranty they will charge $10 + shipping to get a replacement on their defective product. I will never buy another Cuisinart product after I have...

So Far So Good


Seems like good coffee maker. Does not spill when you pour

NO GOLD TONE FILTER INCLUDED. It even says gold tone filter under features, but that does not mean that it is included. Comes with a few filters to get you buy though

Great Coffee Maker


Overall, a great little machine. It was rated highly everywhere I looked, and the carafe design is much better than many others. With a couple minor tweaks (see cons) this could be the hands-down best machine out there, imho.

Clean interface, attractive design, good coffee

I'm not thrilled with Cuisinart's method of water filtration, to be honest. It's a little more clunky to change filters than I'd like, but that's minor. I would also like a "strong" brew option for slower brewing but more flavor

Well worth the money


This coffee maker makes excellent coffee! The coffee seems to get better and better every day with minimal adjustments to the amount of coffee used. No problems with pouring the water in. I welcome being told when the coffee is ready, especially when I...

None that I have noticed

Fast shipping by NewEgg as always!!

This is the second Cuisinart coffee maker we have owned and it brews a great cup pf coffee! The first one is still in use as our camping pot. I really like the cone shape filters as I think they brew a better tasting coffee. It is easy to program and...
