Our first one lasted over 6 years and its replacement lasted about 5.We loved the machine so much we bought exactly the same one in 2016.It is also not my first Cuisinart Grind and Brew coffee maker purchase.So amazon transferred me to cuisinart-they wouldn’t let me return it, so I asked if I could trade for another model and pay any difference .I left it at one of the destinations.This coffee maker created a whole new set of problems that I never knew existed in the world of coffee brewing.After reading though many of the reviews, I opted to also get the $3 extended warranty Amazon offered at checkout.Looked at other options but ultimately decided to go with our tried and true favorite coffee maker.The grinder gets wet every time you brew coffee so you have to take the whole thing apart and dry it to make another pot.A suggestion: heating element to the carafe could be turned off or set to work, up to two hours, after brewing.The previous version was unbelievably good.This does a great job of grinding, spraying water of the grounds evenly, and brewing a solid cup of coffee.Yes, that meant there were more moving parts that could get fouled up, and it was harder to clean , but when it worked it ground and brewed good, strong coffee, and the coffeemaker lasted for over a decade before finally giving up the ghost.We love this thing so much that we keep one in our RV and one in our house.I had this exact model for more than 10 years, and it was amazing, so when it finally wore out, I bought the exact same model.We’ve generally been very happy with them.When it finally died after years of use, I went to a kureg for convenience but missed the flavor of fresh ground coffee.For the most part, we really love this coffee pot.First is the charcoal filter I’ve never used in any other brewer before.
Previously I used a Cuisinart 14 cup capacity and really liked that model.Had to hunt for this model.A common complaint was that the freshly-brewed coffee wasn’t as hot as it was expected to be.Buying it again! It’s the best! The thermal pot is amazing, even without “preheating” it with hot water.I’ve been using this one for almost 2 months and I’m enjoying the fact that there is a signal to let you know if you have not put it together correctly.If you don’t, it won’t grind properly, and often times will clog so you end up with coffee running all over the counter and of course makes your morning cup of joe weak and grose.It is the most I have ever spent on a coffee maker and yet the worst one I have ever had! Condensation builds up each time you brew inside the grinder preventing all the grounds from even entering the basket.The decanter holds the temperature decently but not perfectly but if you have a microwave close by you can reheat it without affecting the flavor.I agree that the coffee is not as strong as making a shot or two of espresso in a Bialetti, but I didn’t expect it would.I liked the way this one brewed the coffee until a few months ago when it decided to stop brewing after between 2 and 4 cups were brewed .I bought mine factory-refurbished, at a great discount.The first few pots of coffee were fine, but after that, it was inconsistent in terms of how the coffee came out and generally came out weak.It was bought with the intent that I would get a nice pot of coffee with a fresh grind all from one unit,less mess and cleanup.YES I have had beans roasted.It has internal grinder that is just like the normal standalone grinder.Ready by evening to set up for fresh coffee the next morning.In January 2018 it was thrown in the garbage.I thought maybe I had an issue with my outlet but nope, the coffee machine is defective.It took me weeks to get down pat the placement of the filter holder on its swing-out rest.
Has thermos carafe.And suddenly the coffee maker seems to have a mind of its own.After a few months of using this coffee maker, I can say that while I enjoy the taste of the coffee that this machine makes, I consistently find myself dreading having to make coffee using this machine.Giving the cuisinart away to someone who has fewer requirements and expectations for their morning cup of java.Easy to program.This is such a perfect design, that I’ve noticed Cuisinart hasn’t changed a thing in the design over all this time.But we’ve been enjoying the Cuisinart Grind/Brew Thermal Carafe coffee maker for a 2 1/2 months without any problems.Used semi-regularly.We used it twice and then it quit brewing coffee even though all the other parts of the machine worked OK.Second, as many other reviewers have noted, the steam from brewing is captured right up in to the grinding container, making this area constantly wet, hard to keep clean, and unreliable in performance.But the problem is in the maintenance that keeps me from giving it 5 stars.I love the programmable option and I am thrilled to wake up to piping hot coffee at 6 AM each day.Sent the unit back got another unit same problem with the second unit after eight months stop sucking up the water.This one has the following significant improvements:* Much better latch on basket door!* Much better latch on grinder lid!* As someone else noted, far fewer “ledges” behind the basket, so ground coffee doesn’t collect on the ledges and the whole thing stays much cleaner.The water is hot enough to make coffee.First, the coffee bean grinder gets filled with moisture, which blocks the beans.I had an older model that broke .Why it was not engineered not to get wet with condensation I do not know but the fact that it does and the residual grounds are wet and gunky makes a thorough clean up a necessity if you want it to work the next time you want coffee.The steel pot holds the coffee hot for hours and won’t break in those sink mishaps.The coffee is weak and not hot.
