I love the taste of the coffee and my only complain is with the filter. I was disappointed that disposable filters could not be used because they didn't drain quickly enough to al ... (see full review)low the water to filter into the pot as it was released. The result was an overflow of grinds all over the place.The permanent filter eliminates that as long as it is seated properly. If it is not lined up properly it, too, will cause an overflow.Having the ability to make one cup or travel mug is a plus.I like that the warming feature allows you to select how long you want the pot kept warm (up to 4 hours) before turning itself off.I would recommend this coffee pot as long as you have the patience to double check the placement of the filter when setting it up.
I needed to return this coffee system and was told that UPS had to come pick it up. They have within 21 days. I have this big box sitting in my entrance area.....waiting and wait ... (see full review)ing for the pickup. Be sure you want it!
I bought a Hamilton Beach Flex Brew on June 4th 2015...it is July 25th and I have coffee brewing all over my counter top! I purchased the protection plan at time of purchase. I c ... (see full review)alled the number for the protection plan purchased through HSN and was told that I had to call the manufacturer (Hamilton Beach) and if they wouldn't help me they MIGHT send me a refund check. What is the point of buying a "Electronics replacement plan" if they MIGHT just reimburse you for the item when it breaks for no reason and you have to go out and buy another one??? Terrible plan, would not recommend anyone buying it and even worse coffee maker! According to blogs online (which shame on me for not reading these more thoroughly prior to buying this coffee maker) this has happened to quite a few purchasers....Unbelievable. Do not recommend this coffee maker nor HSN.
Great hot coffee delivered fast and with a wonderful no leak pot. Amazing difference made by the charcoal filter without needing to buy bottled water, I can now use water right fro ... (see full review)m the tap which tastes just wonderful. Easy to set up and the display is easy to read. Love the 14 cup capacity and there is just no downside I see.
I have finally found a replacement coffee pot. I am a coffee snob so much so that I had a keurig and a Mr Coffee coffeemaker on my counter. So my quest for the perfect replacement ... (see full review)started with the Hamilton beach flex brew. great concept and exactly what I was looking for. But it made horrible lukewarm coffee and took forever to brew. Not to mention it leaked and felt flimsy. So I returned it and got this cuisinart grind and brew. It makes perfect coffee and looks good on the counter!!!
This item is easy to clean. The coffee maker is very fragile. The heat element on the bakery is not too good either. I kept this item simply as a back up if needed. The price was i ... (see full review)nexpensive or I would have sent this item back.
I. LOVE. THIS. COFFEE. MAKER!!!I had a silver and black one just like the red one. It lasted 11-12 years. Not one problem. I'm excited to get it in the beautiful red color to ma ... (see full review)tch my kitchen. It makes coffee just as well as the previous one. The one feature that I REALLY like is that you can set the maker to cut off up to 4 hours. Makes me happy that I don't have to "nuke" coffee any more.
I have gone the kuerig route and it was a pain and very expensive using those pods I have had this pot before and loved it. Don't know why I did not replace it with the same ... (see full review)thing when it pooped out on me after 6 years. I guess cause there was so much hype about the single serve pots that I thought I would love it. I used the kuerig for about 3 months, got sick of the expense and having to make a fresh cup of coffee each time I wanted one. So, I ordered this and happily gave the single serve coffee maker to the neighbor. I love this coffee maker and the quality of Cuisinart products. I make a pot in the morning and can get a hot cup with just the push of the lever within seconds all day long. If I am not going to be home for the full day, I can make as many cups as I will need. Great when I am expecting company and know that the coffee is on demand and ready when needed. I can make up to 12 cups at a time if needed. I also love the fact the water reservoir comes off
The minute I got my pot in the mail I opened it and read the instructions on how to start it up. I made the best pot of coffee I have ever had in less than an hour. I love the desi ... (see full review)gn and the way it only takes 3 minutes to get a whole pot of coffee. I recommend this to all my friends.
I had one years ago, but it was labor intensive to clean it daily and stopped pumping water after 10 months. This one has much more quality and is not labor intensive to clean. I r ... (see full review)eally like it because you have to put the beans in the container daily, not leave the beans in the top of the machine. This works much better. Plus the thermal pot is perfect and keeps coffee warm for a long time without that burned taste you get when coffee sits on the burner. KUDOS Cusinart!! You finally got it right!
Had another brand that filled a 16oz travel mug. Loved it until it sprung a huge leak. This one makes 4 cups (5-1/2 oz cups) so I make 3 cups of fantastic coffee and it's just righ ... (see full review)t to pour into my travel mug. This pot is so easy to work with. I just wish it would beep when it's finished. Recommend for singles, couples, anyone who likes coffee in a tea cup. Great purchase at a terrific price.
I read the reviews before purchasing, and love, love, love this grind and brew coffee pot! I enjoy not having to grind coffee with my single coffee grinder. For coffee lovers this ... (see full review)is a great product to own.
Purchased this appliance in June of 2014. It makes very good coffee. I did have an issue with one of the hinges on the lid breaking, but I did contact the manufacturer today, and ... (see full review) they are sending me a new unit. Very easy to deal with. They did charge me $10 to replace it, but it will be worth it.
I have a De Longhi espresso machine and I love. I thought if I got a De Longhi coffee pot I would enjoy it just as much. This coffee pot is the worse pot I've ever owned. My Mr C ... (see full review)offee that I paid 18.00 brewed better than this pot. This pot creates so much steam, it leaves water all over your counter. The coffee has a funny taste due to the double walled carafe. Unfortunately I did return it and order the kmix made by De Longhi and I hope this machine is better made.
I dislike using the word horrible and Cuisinart together, but with no true “automatic” shut-off on this model, it’s a pain and potentially costly to your kitchen countertop. Let ... (see full review)me explain, you have to turn the knob to brew/auto-on, afterwards you have to manually turn the knob to auto shut-off and then it give you 2 hours. Geez, for the price you'd assume it would have the same feature, as a cheap $15 coffee maker, that will cut-off by itself after 2 hours of use. I really am disappointed by the Cuisinart model. I forgot to turn the knob to off and scorched my countertop. The bottom heats up and stays extremely hot! I would not recommend, very unsafe, if you can't remember on your way out the door, to manually turn the knob to auto-off setting after making your coffee.
