This is my 3rd one and I love it. For those that say it is hard to clean, it is not. I use a bottle brush and paper towel and it takes seconds. I use 1/3 cup of bean and coffee is perfect. How hard is that. From coffee country.

Would stop when it wasn't finished. Thought it needed cleaning. But didn't help. Have to hit reset button atleast 5 times to get a pot of coffee. Thermal pot doesn't keep coffee hot, even when you charge the pot. Doesn't pour well and the lid is hard to put on. Don't recommend at all.

Not very good because the coffee grinds keep clogging up the hole that they come out from and it causes a chain reaction in the grinder area that is very hard to clean.

Brands I'd also recommend: Get the Cuisinart 12 Cup Thermal without the grinder. Much better...

We received this coffeepot as a wedding gift. Within six months, we stopped using the Burr grinding feature because the coffee chute continually clogged and it became difficult (and time consuming in the morning) to clear. It's a 'crap shoot' each morning as to whether the coffee will drip into the pot as it should or if it will be running down my counter tops and cabinets because the pot can't manage collecting the coffee in time. It has too many movable parts that continually malfunction. Cuisinart is generally a trusted brand, but this coffeemaker is flat out a bad product.

An unusable coffee grinder that cannot grind. Doesn't matter settings whole beans will show up in tunnel anyway. Has a diagonal chute and narrow tunnel instead of directly grinding in canister which gets clogged every single time. Doesn't keep coffee hot in carafe. By 2nd cup is lukewarm. Very odd, heavy and difficult to open lid not easy at all to pour last "cold" cup, heavy carafe is not easy to clean, hand doesn't fit in. Sharp edges are hurtful when trying to scrub inside. Have to use separate grinder. Not user friendly. Total disappointment. These designers, engineers don't test products? A carafe that can't keep temperature? Is minimum requirement for coffee for crying out loud! Not a heating base at least for the price? Very disappointed for a Cuisinart if that supposed to be reliable thing. Why try to reinvent the wheel instead of improving it? A total failure.

Don't buy it! Just stops working and then you have to hit it to start it again. I just bought the Kenmore Grind and Brew Elite, it comes with a five year replacement no questions asked. Time will tell on this one.

Excellent coffee maker, easy to use, makes great coffee. I previously had an older model that let the steam back up into the grinder, making it difficult to clean, but they have solved this problem. Also, the coffee stays hot for at least six hours in the carafe, which seems very reasonable.

This coffee maker has been less than good. The beans used have never made much difference. The coffee when fresh is cool and not flavorful (and rather bitter), I have wondered if perhaps I had a non functional heating element. I must clean the chute every other day, otherwise there is a clogged area leading to the brewing basket. My sister-in-law has the same coffee maker and only cleans the chute every 10 uses to my every other use and hers brews hot, delicious coffee with the same beans. By contrast, my Cuisinart food processor is over 31 years old and only has had a very few plastic replacements over the years. It is slightly older than my 2012 Olympian triathlete daughter, Sarah Groff. The reason I selected the coffee maker was because I had been so impressed with my food processor. Unfortunately, I have been bitterly disappointed with the coffee made by my machine.

Not impressed. Coffee never did grind fine enough or with any consistency of size of the chunks of coffee, like really large pieces and then down to really fine. Chunks 1/4 to 1/3 of the bean in size. No way to adjust the grinder for the course or fineness of the grind, just the amount of coffee. Wound up using our small coffee grinder and just scooping it in like before. Lid very difficult to unscrew. With my carpal tunnel, almost impossible to remove sometimes, have to use pliers. Now it doesn't finish brewing with a full pot, seems to time out after 17 minutes. Used to take about 12 minutes to brew a full pot. Cleaned it several times, no difference. Like the thermal carafe however, wish I would have bought a non grinder with thermal carafe only. Would not buy another one.
