Great Machine


It's durable, very reliable, compact, brews quick, and quality built. Good for a tiny apartment with only you using the coffee maker

It says it makes 4-cups (if you base it on european coffee cups). If you use American-size coffee cups, then this unit is good for only making 2-cups at a time

Glad we bought it


Be sure to read lengthy reviews on [@].Knowing recommendations such as pouring slowly to avoid drips has given us the opportunity to enjoy using our coffeemaker without any negatives. We wanted stainless carafe for morning coffee on the boat. Liked it...

Small, handy, quick coffee maker


Makes good coffee, but when I go for the second cup, it's only lukewarm. Have to heat it up in the microwave. It's fine for my purposes, since I am the only coffee drinker

Coffee Doesn't Stay Hot

Perfect for one


I was looking for a small coffee maker that brewed real coffee and not a pod or K-cup without having to pull out my large coffee maker for every day use. This is perfect for one person for 2 nice size cups of coffee.

Product Specifications

Cuisinart created its Pink Series to help support breast cancer reserch. A portion of proceeds from the sale of every Cuisinart Pink Series product will be donated to this cause. This extensive line of premium prooducts in deleciously soft pink makes a lot more than just a styling statement! Not everyone wants a coffee maker that makes 10 or 12 cups. This one from Cuisinart is designed for one or two persons and makes four cups - just the right amount! Small in design, it takes up minimal counter space, too. The stainless steel carafe keeps coffee hot and features a dripless pour spout so there are no messy drips left on your counter. Another feature so popular with coffee drinkers is the Brew Pause that lets you snag a cup while in the process of brewing. The Cuisinart coffee maker has a 30-minute automatic shutoff and an "On" indicator light. To help you get started, it comes with an instruction book.
