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.

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

cuisinart premier series 12cup coffee maker


Overall this is a great coffee maker for the price. I like the looks of it and I like the feature that if you want a cup of coffee before it is done brewing the coffee maker will automatically stop brewing. This is a very nice feature.

great price

autumatically shuts off after a couple of hours. I then need to microwave my coffee if I want another cup

Great Coffee Pot


Overall we are very pleased with this coffee pot. Although I would love it if it brewed a bit faster, everything else is perfect and I love the fact that the pot doesn't leak everywhere when I pour.

No drip pouring
