mmmmm coffee

 

makes coffee, stealth like with already ground coffee or alarm clock like with whole beans ground and dispensed into a waiting filter

does not make beer

Consumer review by:

Much improved

 

Definately buy if replacing the original. If not still recommended but be ready for more cleaning. Less than 2 minutes to clean all the parts.

Great tasting coffee. We had the first version of this machine and this one is twice as easy to clean and use. It is a bit more work but after having the first version this is great. Love the craft as the thermal helps with making it easy to clean as...

None so far just a bit more work to clean than an average maker

Great Coffee

 

It does make great coffee though.

Makes great coffee. Thermos keeps coffee warm for many hours. Typlically plenty warm to drink after 2 hours, and maybe 3. You can use beans or pre-ground coffee. You can use the permanent filter or paper filters

Small filter basket. A lot of moving parts to clean after each brew. If I knew it had this many moving parts to clean and get all setup just right in order to brew I wouldn't have bought it

Neat idea

 

Rarely use the grind feature anymore.

Convenient, stainless carafe, attractive design

Will not grind as fine as a hand grinder ; Will brew counter spillage if basket is not carefully latched in place ; Bottom rusts out ; Cuisinart warranty stinks. They claimed my unit had been used commercially, would not replace

WOW! Great Value!

 

I really liked this product. The coffee smells and tastes great. The water filter is a total bonus and makes a huge difference in the taste of the coffee. Daily cleaning is needed just like any other Coffee Machine. The thermal pitcher is a total...

My only complainant was the printing on the machine started to wear off after 3 months of use

COMPLETE JUNK...Dont buy this

 

It makes delicious coffee...at a price

When you brew coffee, the steam from the brewing coffee go into where the coffee was just grounded. This creates a incredible mess of coffee paste. Look forward to spending about 5 mins EVERY time you make a pot of coffee to clean it completely. I...

Cuisinart DGB-600BC Stainless steel Grind & Brew Thermal 10-Cup Automatic Coffeemaker

 

People who say you have to clean the grinder every time, hey don,t you clean your hand grinder every time, Lazy.

Very simple to make great coffee, simple to clean, love the carafe. If it leaks you did,nt push the filter in till it locks

Noisy

Consumer review by:

very nice maker

 

Wish it came with a clear graduated pitcher for filling the unit with water rather than using the carafe.

Coffee from beans or ground, thermal carafe, delay timer, all parts dishwasher safe, and looks nice

Consumer review by:

Pass on this one and

 

take a pass on this model and upgrade to the DGB-900BC (it has a burr grinder and the bean hopper holds a 1/2 lb. of beans). You'll still have to clean the filter assembly for every pot, but you'll only have to clean the grinder and bean holder once a...

Makes great tasting coffee, thermal carafe keeps the coffee hot. Looks great sitting on the countertop

grinder must be cleaned for each use...grrrr

Product Specifications

A unique way to pamper the coffee lover. The 10 cup automatic grind and brew coffee maker is designed to wake you up with the smell of the freshest, most flavourful coffee imaginable -- the kind you would go to your favourite coffee bar to get. This smart coffeemaker has a built-in grinder that grinds the beans just before brewing (or push the Grind Off button to use with ground coffee). Program the machine with the number of cups you'd like and just enough water will be delivered to extract all of the good flavour and none of the bitterness. The double-wall insulated thermal carafe will keep the coffee hot for hours.A variety of adjustable features makes this the ultimate user-friendly coffee maker. A 24-hour fully programmable timer guarantees delicious, fresh-brewed coffee just when you want it. The handy Brew Pause feature lets you enjoy a cup of coffee before brewing has finished. An automatic shut-off control turns the coffee maker off right after brewing or up to 4 hours later. A "1 - 4 cups" setting provides full flavour when brewing just a few cups. A charcoal water filter removes impurities from the water before brewing. A separate grinder chamber and filter area make for easy cleanup. Includes a permanent gold tone filter.Brushed stainless steel.3 year limited warranty.Cuisinart Grind & Brew Thermal Coffee Maker
