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...

Makes great coffee


I bought this to replace the same brand, older model. It is easy to set up at night to be brewed the next morning. It makes great coffee, and keeps it at the perfect temperature. My only complaint is it is a bit loud during the brewing process.

Easy to use, great price

A bit noisy

I can't say anything bad about it yet

I like this coffee maker because it is simple to use. I have the permanent coffee filter so I don't have to purchase paper filters. Timer allows me to prepare coffee for brewing the night before and I get to wake smelling the freshly brewed coffee....

Quality Coffeemaker


It simply does a great job of making coffee. It has all the usual items (clock, timer, auto shutoff, etc.) and it works well making good coffee. The only drawback is the reservoir for the water could be a little easier to fill, but it's not a major issue.

Makes good coffee

Access to fill water tank
