Rated 5 out of 5★ by BOSFLASH So fat great coffee maker As recommended here I use the 4-cup button for my usual 7- to 8-cups at a time. Pour the coffee into the permanent filter to about 3/4 and press start, then 4 cup. The time sets easy hold down the button a few seconds to engage, release then press away. I never program, but I'm sure it works fine. As recommended here I flush ot the pot with hot water before brewing. The metal thermos pot is excellent. It keeps the coffee hot for hours. If too cool after an hour or two, set it for minute in the microwave. No constant heating means coffee stays fresh tasting. I always flush out the filter very well, as well as the plastic holder so everything is dead clean each time. I can remember when a good stainless thermos alone (for the road) was up to almost 50 bucks. No more forgetting the OFF button, no more paper filters. Ready beeps could be louder, but who cares, it beep[s as advertised. Like I said: So far very good. 02/17/2014
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Fairway Excellent Coffee This was my second Cuisinart coffee maker for a second location. It works great, and the coffee stays hot for at least 8 hours without preheating the container. Only issue is where the water goes in is quite small, so poor slow and carefully. 04/14/2014
Rated 4 out of 5★ by besttellerever Easy to operate and accurate! This coffee maker is extremely easy to operate. If you can read, you can operate it. Or, if your technical in nature it will be easy to figure out. Coffee begins to get lukewarm after 2 hours of brewing, which is plenty of time for me to drink it. I love it! 03/05/2014
Rated 4 out of 5★ by Smartgrammy Easy to use. Pros..Easy to useCan pour coffee without opening the lid.As good as my old one.The coffee tastes good.Cons..Does not keep coffee hot very long, perhaps a couple of hours.Unless you like sediment in your cup, do not use the permanent filter.The cone paper filters are fairly expensive also. 07/14/2014
Rated 4 out of 5★ by cuptogo Good Coffee Maker We liked out previous Cuisinart coffeemaker. It died after a few years of daily use, so decided to get the same brand. This time we decided to try the thermal pot instead of glass. The coffee stays hot for at least a couple of hours. It tastes better NOT being constantly warmed on the burner. I would give it a "5" rating, but the hot water seems to pass through the drip a bit fast, and we are needing to use a little more coffee to get the desired flavor. 07/15/2014
Rated 2 out of 5★ by CoffeeAtDawn Not up to expectations I had this same model coffee maker for 4 years, until it just stopped working. I liked it so much, I purchased another, this new model with a thermal carafe. It looks the same, buttons the same, and my old glass coffee pot fits. But upon completion of brewing, the new model just shuts off. My old model stayed on for approx an hour to keep the coffee pot hot. Additionally, the coffee doesn't seem as hot, as I feel the need to reheat it shortly thereafter. Disappointed. 08/07/2014
Rated 5 out of 5★ by lectio Great coffee maker!! I previously owned this model and was very pleased with the coffee. The main attraction was the thermos pot which enables one to keep it for a longer period of time without the coffee becoming "stale" or "old". 08/10/2014
