This state-of-the-art Cuisinart coffeemaker features an advanced heater design that turns up the temperature for hotter coffee – because temperature is as important as taste! And it retains coffee’s full flavor and quality throughout the brewing process. The over-sized digital display illuminates the full range of programmable options, including Regular and Bold flavor settings. And the styling is sleek, with elegant angles, a new high-tech look, and an extremely user-friendly control panel. Cuisinart provides a limited 3-year warranty for this product. Lid is a tight fit and snaps on. There is a square mechanical button on the top of the coffee maker that needs to be pressed in order for the lid to open. Coffee Maker leaks if you overfill it with water.

If I were to nitpick, I wish: the unit were an inch or so shorter for better clearance under overhead kitchen cabinets to add water; the carafe had a glass rim for even easier cleaning and complete emptying; and, the clock could be set in reverse as well as forward. For me, this is all minor stuff.
I read a couple of reviews complaining about leaks. But from what I can determine, this can be caused by removal of the carafe during the brewing process, and not replacing it within the 20 seconds Cuisinart allows (resulting in a backup of water as it flows through the coffee grounds). Another cause would be using too fine a grind of coffee; and another from using the metal mesh basket with a paper filter. These cautions are all in the instructions.
As a note, Amazon delivered this coffeemaker promptly and safely. Cuisinart's box was placed inside a plain corrugated box filled with good packing material.
Would I buy this again? Yes. Would I recommend it to others? Yes.
OK, a followup after one week of use...a fault, pointed out by a few others has appeared. The top button does not always release the lid so I can remove/replace grounds and water. Although a fingernail inserted around the button will coax it open, this should not be necessary. And, it's not a consistent problem. But, from what I can tell, it might actually be surface tension from steam collecting under the lid that causes the lid to "stick". A stronger spring release or even a small handle to lift the lid would probably fix the problem. Cuisinart's engineers need to get this fixed.
The upshot is, as someone else reported, Cuisinart will honor the warranty, but even after just a week of use, they expect the user to pay for all shipping. This can get expensive. On the other hand, Amazon gets five stars for promising to send me out a new coffeemaker, and providing a return label -- cheerfully, and at no cost to me. Gotta love Amazon for saving the day!
As a postscript, everything has worked out well. The replacement Cuisinart arrived promptly and at no charge, and with no problems at all. In a side-by-side comparison before returning the original coffeemaker, I found the two release springs (the two buttons inside the lid, at the front) are noticeably stronger in the replacement.
BUT. The lid. The lid mechanism has now broken on two of our coffee makers, both within a year of buying them. Not impressed. Our cleaning lady has the same coffee maker, but about ten years old. She says hers has a metal hinge on the lid, this one is plastic and is not built too last. I hope the manufacturer fixes this. In the mean time, we are switching to a different brand.
But the issue is really with the thermos. Inside there is a stainless steel lip that indents quite a ways on the top. I'm guessing that is why your able to pour it out without turning the lid and it still keeps hot. The lip makes it impossible to use the thermos to fill the chamber with water because you have to have it completely upside down to get the water out. So I have to use a wide mouth mason jar. That really isn't that big of deal for me. The real issue with that indented lip inside is that in order to get all the coffee out you have to literally turn it completely upside down over your cup and then some of it will splatter from the upper lid so you have to be careful. In the end when you go to rince the thermos you put water in and rinse it then shake upside down a bit and lay completely upside down. It is an irritating issue but it makes a good cup of coffee. That issue will stop me from buying that particular coffee maker again unless it was being clearanced way down. But I expect it to last a long time like other Cuisinart coffee makers I have had in the past.
This is a 2nd REVIEW so I am changing my star rating. I purchased this in Sept of 2016. It is now April of 2017. The cheap plastic hinges on the lid are terrible. One came apart already and the other will soon follow. No way to fix it. When that happens I'm not sure it will be useable anymore as it has to hook down to brew. Too much money to pay for a coffee pot that lasts 6 months without beginning to come apart. The pot has always sat in the same spot so doesn't receive hard use. One pot a day with an extra now and then for company. Cuisinart was such a great brand. The company will not stand behind this product now. When the last little plastic hinge is gone I will have to purchase another pot. I'll think hard before I ever purchase this brand again without being able to actually look it over.Plastic is okay in some areas but not as a hinge that is necessary for the working of the appliance. If you can't click it down it won't brew. I did debate when I saw where it was coming from. Should have listened. I can deal with the thermos issue as it still makes a great cup of coffee but the hinges are a serious problem. I will soon have to purchase another coffee pot.
