ALL I can say is, I guess they're in the right price point, because the next step up is into the hundreds of dollars... but all of my Cuisinart coffee makers have died from the same or similar problems of seal failures.
I got my first Cuisinart coffee maker (identical but brushed aluminum look)... it had a seal fail probably a year then leaked water out of the bottom.
I immediately went and got a shiny silver like this. I liked the look and the coffee it made so I figured it was a fluke and got a new one...
About a year later, it a seal failure happened so that it no longer would bring water up from the water reservoir to where the coffee grounds were.
Next one was an upgrade... slightly bigger and nicer... It lasted about 4 years then did the same thing... stopped transporting water so no coffee would brew. But I figured hey... looks cool... good coffee... lasted a lot longer than the last couple... let's roll with it.
But this last one I JUST got a month and a half ago... one of the seals failed and the clock/programming display filled up with water and steam and it is now unusable.
Too many seal failures!
Not necessarily it seems.
Otherwise it makes great coffee.
First one died due to a power surge so the electronics got fried.
Second one the lid didn't sit flush, but we humored it. It too got fried. (We live in Florida - lots of thunderstorms).
Third one? Well, the glass carafe DID NOT sit well, so I got out the old one and used the old one's coffee filter holder basket too. Now all's well. The new carafe when placed in the unit was so sloppy I thought they were kidding me. Almost like the carafe had a rounded bottom??? Anyway - all's well as stated.
I like the "stainless steel" finish on this model - like it's plastic coated or just fake SS anyway? Whatever, it cleans up nicely.
Would, and no doubt will, buy this very same model again, in another three years!
Amazing! Still works great and looks great. Always produces tasty coffee even though I have neglected (deliberately) to replace the charcoal filters as frequently as recommended by the manufacturer.
1 year update ---
Still perfect in every way! Not a single issue or inconvenience after a full year of 1 to 2 pots of coffee daily. I must live in a charmed region of the US because I have not changed the small charcoal filter until recently and it always produced fine coffee. The gold tone filter basket was seldom used (it really did leave rather grainy sediment, as expected). I soon removed the filter basket and just use standard paper filters... never had a paper filter collapse during brewing. My coffee maker is left on a kitchen counter with a low cabinet clearance, so I simply slide it toward me to fill the small top opening under the lid - never a problem. The finish is still immaculate and all controls function perfectly and are easy to program. The auto shut-off is a wonderful and useful feature - no burned coffee forgotten in the carafe. Couldn't be happier with this product!
Original review ---
I was sold by reviews I had read, the simple look, the uncommonly long warranty period, and finally the sale price on amazon.com. After 1 month of use, I am completely satisfied and actually quite impressed. Not the curvy plastic contours of many other new products (which can look simply cheap) and everything functions wonderfully. I use #4 filter papers placed inside the permanent lift-out gold tone filter basket to limit transfer of grounds to the carafe. This entire unit has a very solid & stable feel. The carafe is a smooth design and does not drip. This product will require a bit of cabinet height clearance to allow filling the small water reservoir located toward the rear beneath the hinged lid, but I just pull the unit forward on my counter - useful too for seeing the "steps" of the water lever indicator. The coffee tastes great even with nasty local tap water, so the mini charcoal filter seems to work very well. I would recommend using bottled water for hard water areas to increase filter replacement time (my local grocery store offers purified water refills for only .30 per gallon from a vending machine). Coffee making time is around 7 minutes for a full carafe (which seems quite fast) and 5 gentle peep-peep-peep tones sound when cycle is complete. This is a very easy unit to keep perfectly clean. All the coffee which I have tested tastes great! And, a 3-year warranty... when do you ever see that?
The two knobs (yes, REAL genuine plastic rotary knobs) function nicely and I happen to like the Retro-appearance of this product. The ON/OFF lever looks like it would "click" into position, but is a clever faux-toggle which self-centers after it activates a silent electronic switch. The 4 small metal buttons are soft-touch sensors too. Tiny LED lights on the front indicate when certain functions are active, but they do not demand excessive distracting attention. The LCD clock/timer is easy to use and to read although un-lit. I have just added 3 photos of this product with captions you may wish to view, too.
I purchased this from amazon.com with FREE shipping and during a surprise 1-day sale of precisely the model & color I was seeking - the $60 total price was a great bargain (these are seldom found discounted) - but the full $80 list price I would not hesitate to pay if purchasing again. It was delivered in only 3 days and arrived in a very securely packed outer carton. Before making this purchase I spent an entire day reading hundreds of various reviews for a several highly rated products within this price range. I think this was a great choice and one not simply made on impulse or for appearance or price alone. This definitely gets my vote for a fine and very solid feeling product.
