Average, but good price


I am happy with the various sizes of the bowls and they are satisfactory for my purposes. One of the bowls was broken when it arrived, but a simple phone call took care of it and they sent out another one within a few days.

We LOVE this coffee maker!


I was reticent at first to purchase a $200 coffee maker, but this is the only one I've found with all of the features I wanted: programmable, thermal carafe, included bean grinder.

Great Purchase!


I am pretty darn happy with this coffee maker as I love that I can use whole beans or ground beans. I enjoy setting it to brew ahead of time so that I can wake up to a good cup of Joe! The only downside to this is that if you don't get up shortly after...

Good idea, bad machine


I wanted to like this updated 12-cup version of Cuisinart's Grind and Brew because I was a fan of the older, 10-cup model. I admit with the older one I had to replace it every couple of years because the bean grinder mechanism would die out, but at...

Pass on this one.


This is our second version of this coffee maker. We have never been able to get the automatic brew settings to work. The grinder constantly gets stuck and you have to shake it as it grinds or just use a separate grinder. Pretty pricey to be so high...

Coffee Pot


We have really enjoyed our new coffee pot, however it can be a little bit loud while grinding the coffee and has clogged due to the oil from the coffee beans. With that said, it was super easy to clean out and it does make a great pot of coffee.

Makes mornings possible


This coffee maker makes some tasty coffee!! I love that I can program it the night before, and still wake up to super fresh tasting coffee in the morning! It is a little bit loud, so I usually set it for the same time as our alarm clocks so it doesn't...
