Good coffee but annoying ux

 

One guy has finally gotten a working method for filling involving a slow-straight-side pour but nobody else has this water ninja mad skill. The frustration of putting water in would definitely have been a deal breaker for us had we known in advance.

Makes coffee. Has a low/med/high temp selector for carafe. Heats water in a separate fixture to the right which would be good for tea/cocoa fans. Fairly decent build

Design makes it nearly impossible to fill with water without spilling about 4 oz all over the counter. Everyone in the office has expressed deep frustration about this and we ended up buying a siphon just to fill it

Awesome unit

 

Does everything I can ask of it. Didn't think I'd use it much, but have come to really love the hot water dispenser. Worth the money

Uh . . . it doesn't clean itself

Good coffee maker

 

I don't see much point to the overpriced water filters, and, as with the DCC-1200, once those included with the unit get too grungie I'll throw them out without replacement. This may make it easier to fill the reservoir as the wand the filter is on...

Makes good coffee and is attractive; hot water system is a plus, but haven't used it much in the summer months since purchase. Previously had a Cuisinart DCC-1200, for nearly a decade, and on lifting the fill door condensed water would run down the...

As other reviewers have noted, it can be somewhat tricky to fill the coffee maker reservoir as the opening is on the small side and in the center rear of the unit. Replacement water filters are expensive

Love it!

 

Researched new coffee makers and decided to bit the bullet on the cuisinart and glad we did. This is the next step upgrade to the original coffeemaker by cuisinart. Love the fact that this one comes with the hot water dispenser.

Amazing water feature that comes with the cuisinart CHW. Bit the bullet and went with this one instead of just the Mr. Coffee and with the 3/yr warranty also. Glad that we made the purchase. I am sure we will be very satisfied with this

LOVE IT

 

Love the convenience of making coffee or tea from one machine and looks nice on the counter. The water gets very very hot (yep burnt my tongue) so if you like hot tea or soup or just what hot water in a couple of minutes without having to use a...

It is a little difficult to pour the water in the resourvior for the coffee. Takes a few times to get it down

Great Coffee maker

 

We brew coffee twice a day, love program for morning, keeps coffee very hot all morning to keep drinking. Hot water dispenser is the best, very hot and gets hot quick if don\'t want to leave it on. It is noisy as it keeps the water hot, but we just...
