Enjoying Each Cup of Coffee Brewed With Our Cuisinart

 

When it came time to buy another coffee maker we did our research. We decided on the Cuisinart Grind and Brew DGB-500 Coffee Maker. After six months, we are still happy with our purchase. We chose to get a coffee maker that grinds, for the first time. ...

Can use ground or whole bean coffee, great features, yet simple to use.

Brews a weaker cup of coffee. You will hear the grinder.

Incredibly Disappointing

 

I love/need a good cup of coffee in the morning, and so the idea of a grind and brew all-in-one coffee maker seemed like a great idea to me. I had a coffee maker, and next to it I had a grinder. I thought it would be great to combine these two...

The carafe pours well

Loud, poorly designed, hard to clean

Not good!

 

I drink black coffee and don't like canned, pre-ground coffee. It is bitter and often stale. So, I've been using a coffee grinder daily for years. I know exactly how many beans and how much water to use. When I saw that there were coffee makers...

Melitta: 7 different grinding options. Easy to use & clean. FM weather alert.

Cuisinart: grinds course. Wouldn't turn on automaticaly, had to start manually. Beeper wouldn't shut off.

My Daily Grind (and Brew)

 

So, you thought beer was the only brew we drink Chez Bruguru? You thought wrong. In reality, we drink more coffee than we do beer, I myself accounting for two large cups each morning. Of coffee. Not beer. Ahem. And I like my coffee strong, freshly ...

Programmable, grinds whole beans, sturdy

Can be hard to clean, really a ten cup maker, loud

Will Not Buy Another One

 

I have owned 2 Cuisinart Grind and Brew Coffee Makers in the past 2 and a half years +/-. The first one lasted about a year and a half before it started failing. The failure started when the coffee maker would stop brewing and make the tone sound ...

Freshly ground coffee.

Terrible quality, Terrible value, Not durable.

Cuisinart Grind & Brew Automatic coffeemaker DGB-500BK

 

Wonderful fresh grinding and brewing that makes a great cup of coffee!

A bit loud when grinding but nothing you can't handle.

Cuisinart Grind & Brew Automatic coffeemaker DGB-500BK

 

What I love about this coffeemaker compared to another grind and brew maker I had is this one can be programed to stay hot from one to four hours! The other would shut off after one hour and that just is not long enough for me. I love the smell of...

The early morning smell of fresh ground coffee

 

Possibly the best tasting coffee I have ever had.

It takes a little time to clean all the parts.

Product Specifications

CusinArt DGB-500W Grind and Brew Coffee Maker - The fundamental concept behind Cuisinart's Grind and Brew system is preservation of flavor. When coffee beans are freshly ground, the natural oils that result contribute to the natural, complex flavor. As ground coffee sits, these oils dissipate and their unique properties fade. By integrating a grinder into the coffee maker, you're assured of getting the optimal flavor from the coffee bean. Re-useable Gold-tone filter Charcoal filter helps filter impurities from water Grind off (turns off the grinder in case you have coffee) Brew Pause Comfort-grip handle Taste Keeper lid keeps your coffee fresher, longer Self-clean setting with a time-to-clean monitor Power Cord Storage Color - WHITE
