so far, so good After few weeks of usage just a details are worse than expected: A bit noisy grid and the streght of coffee made. Wo loves to have coffee really strong might be unsatisfied using the grid and its dosage. April 18, 2013
worst coffemaker I ever had I had a cuisinart glass grind & brew. It made good coffee but did not get it hot enough and eventually the pump stopped working. I thought this new one was made better but was so disappointed, Not only was the coffee not very hot but it hardly ground any beans, even on the strongest setting, that the coffee had no taste at all.Also the thermos was no use since the coffee wasn't very hot to begin with. The coffee was the worst I ever had before. I do not recommend this product at all. I took my pot back after two weeks and bought another brand and am very happy with my new one. I will never buy another cuisinart again. April 18, 2013
Why the defective units? Like many others I have liked this grind & brew unit when it is behaving well. However we returned the first unit just after 2 years when burr grinder no longer worked and are having similar problems just after 3 years (so out of warranty) with its replacement. Reviews suggest that this Chinese manufactured product is plagued with a significant number of defective units. This could be due to poor engineering, workmanship, materials or some combination of these. No amount of creative corporate PR, sorry Mary Rogers, can justify the continued failure of Cuisinart management to rectfy this problem. If you do buy this product consider buying form a return-friendly retailer like BB&B rather than directly from Cuisinart. Some buyers will need to return one or more units during warranty period in order to end up with a keeper. This is the China junk problem. It does have a remedy. March 7, 2013
I should have listened. Our first Cuisinart grind brew coffee maker was great. We used it at least 1 time/per day. We wore it out. The grind cup had a "slash" hole through it because beans beat against it so oftem. This is why, + good coffee, we stayed with Cuisinart. This "new" coffee maker is every bit as good as the old one, EXCEPT, ground beans pack under the grinder preventing them from going into the cup. I have to take it to my shop to blow them out with compressed air. This has become a fairly common occurance. We take good care of it on a daily basis. We wash the cup and it's lid daily and brush the grind area several times a week. I would recommend this maker only to someone I don't like. March 5, 2013
