AMAZING! Had a gift card and needed a new coffee maker. After careful consideration we decided on this one. Makes amazing coffee and quickly. Will never buy a single cup brewer again! Dishwasher safe and no filter needed is a major plus as well. April 11, 2013
disappointed I love BB&B. I have had Krups that never kept my coffee hot. I carefully read and re-read all the reviews. I purchased the 14 cup with all the extras. I only have 2 mugs, 6 oz ea in the morning. I wanted to be reminded to clean. Just in case I forgot. Again the coffee not hot. I did the same as I did with the krups. After I put in the cold water. I would run the water to HOT. Fill the carafe half full swirling it around. Also filling the Mug I was using. Emptying it and quickly cover the carafe and start it. That is the only way the coffee would be hot. I gave this a 3 star because I like the taste. Deducted one for the cleaning button i paid extra for and one for not keeping it hot. I purchased the 14 cup because the light is to go on and remind me to clean it. Never has in 10 months. I just re-read some of the reviews. What next? January 11, 2013
$hould be better for the $$, Design/Eng. issues We've had this brewer for about four years; it makes good tasting coffee. Overall it may be the best coffee maker we've ever had, however we have never spent this much money on one before (I think we paid quite a bit more for ours than the current price here, closer to $90). Pros: Nice looking style, brews quickly, has the control features we need. We like the wire basket filter feature to use in lieu paper filters for the medium ground coffee we buy, and one may use a paper filter for finer ground coffee if desired. Cons: Design & Hardware issues 1. The design of the pouring spout on the carafe is poor [no pun]; when filling the water reservoir using a carafe full of water, invariably one will dispense water onto the counter top as water dribbles down the front side of the carafe due to the improper design of the spout until the carafe is about half empty. 2. This unit should have a CMOS & battery to retain the controller settings (clock time, auto start time and other user settings) when power to the unit is interrupted due to a power outage or when the unit is unplugged for purposes of cleaning it according to the manufacturer's instructions. 3. A part of the hot water dispensing "nozzle" assembly under the lid broke off easily while cleaning the unit early on. It still brews coffee without it, but again, poor design. 4. After about a year or so of daily usage, the toggle-like "Retro-style flip switch" that turns the unit on or off started malfunctioning, and works intermittently. If manually brewing a pot of coffee, sometimes we have to bump it several times, sometimes it works. If using the switch to start the automatic (timed) brewing cycle, it may or may not start the brewing cycle. Regardless the brewing option, the unit may quit halfway through the brewing cycle and we have to flip the switch again until it stays on. Lousy hardware. 5. With the water reservoir at the rear of the unit and the "stairway to heaven" stepped water level indicator disappearing down into a hole, it is difficult to see how much water is in it without sufficient ambient light directly overhead. The unit comes with a 3 year limited warranty (plus shipping & handling you must pay both ways). We are remiss in not taking advantage of this opportunity; however, we would have had to go buy another coffee brewer until we received a replacement. December 11, 2012
LOVE THIS COFFEE POT I was surprised to read the negative reviews about the "Cuisinart Brew Central 12-cup" coffee pot. Wondering if it would help the Colorado reviewer if they have tested their water source for mineral content? I use a water filtering system for our kitchen water in Colorado. I have used my Cuisinart Brew Control coffee pot (red color) for several years and love it. The feature I especially like is the 1- 4 cup brew cycle that is used every morning and evening. When we have guests for dinner we can use the 12 cup brew cycle. The charcoal filter and auto cleaning cycle keeps the coffee tasting great. My Cuisinart food processor is also a great product. It has been years since I needed to call their customer service department but at the time I was impressed that I reached a" live person" who could answer my question. I also give a shout-out to the folks at "Weber Grill" for their excellent customer service.You get what you pay for I guess. November 10, 2012
