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.

The grinder is worthless, it grinds too coarse. It hardly grinds the beans at all, so even when you use double the amount of coffee and set it up to brew strong, it comes out weak. You can't adjust the coarseness of the grind, so they recommend using a different grinder if you want fine coffee. What's the point of having a grinder built in then! What a total waste of good money. My old 20.00 pot did better. I should have known that I was in trouble when I saw that it had an instructional DVD. How hard should making coffee be? It's really is not that bad to figure out, but it can be frustrating. This thing needs more maintenance than a Ferrari! You'll spend more time cleaning it and clearing it out and fussing with it than you will making coffee. The Carafe doesn't keep the coffee hot, and it's a total pain to try to pour at all, let alone without spilling it. If you want a lesson on how to mess up a really good idea, than this is the perfect example. It's worthless. You'd be better off with a 20.00 machine and a 15.00 grinder. What a disappointment.

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.

The Grind and Brew is great. Really easy to use. Cleaning is not as much of a hassle as I thought or as was alluded to in reviews I read on other sites. The only thing I wish was better is the pot. Because it's thermal and insulated there's quite a thick wall at the opening, so it becomes difficult to pour once there is only 1 or 2 cups left in the pot. I literally will turn the pot completely upside down to get the last cup. Otherwise it's great and totally worth the investment.

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.
