This is the replacement for my original Cuisinart coffeemaker, purchased several years ago. When the original developed a leak somewhere in the reservoir, there was no doubt that I would replace it with the same unit. It has so many great features that I use. Auto timer, quick stop pour, adjustable warmer temps, mini brew basket, to name a few.
I used to by other brands, which rarely lasted over a year of use. A coworker suggested I try Cuisinart. What a great suggestion.
Yes, initially, the cost was a bit higher, but It lasted for years! Love the quality and performance of my coffeemaker..did I mention how stylish it looks on the counter?
