Cuisinart Coffee, Corrected!

Jul 26, 2011
Review by  
Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:Great cup of coffee; no more leaking/spills!

Cons:Grinder unit still a bit labor intensive to clean.

The Bottom Line:

Rebates and BBB coupons make the pot a good buy for the money


This is my second 10-cup, Grind and Brew Cuisinart Coffee Maker. I was not thoroughly satisifed with my original pot (which was the victim of an unfortunate kitchen mishap) and did do some research on pots before I purchased the same make and model again.  In on-line reviews, I found many consumers had similar complaints about the pot:  tendency to overflow, spillage on pouring, not keeping coffee hot enough. 

Still, how could I resist the confluence of a $30 rebate from Cuisinart and my 20% off coupon at Bed, Bath & Beyond?  Answer: I couldn't.  The list price for the pot is $129.  With my 20% off coupon, I brought it down to $112. Then I filled out a simple form, cut out the UPC, and my final cost will be $92. 

I was pleasantly surprised when I began using my new pot.  First of all, they've changed the spout.  That completely eliminates the annoying spillage problem that was the bane of my existence. 

Next, I actually took the time to read their tips (DUH!) which were clearly a response to consumer complaints.  I am more careful about measuring the water I put into the reservoir so that I don't have leaking.  Additionally, a quick rinse of the pot with hot water ups the temp of my coffee and keeps it hotter.

The thermal carafe is still a boon in my eyes.  I am the only coffee drinker at home, and I can still get hot coffee from my morning pot when I get home in the evening.  That prevents my throwing out what is getting to be a pretty expensive liquid these days.

It is true that the grinding mechanism does still require an inordinate amount of cleaning, but I don't use that function on the machine every day.  It is worth it to clean up a little extra for when I serve freshly ground to company or want to treat myself with fresh beans.

I reject the claim that the pot programming is too complicated. Using the manual and following directions will get things done. 

For the price, I get a great cup of coffee and can pull out the stops when I have my coffee-addict buddies over for dinner or dessert.

Cuisinart clearly upgraded this product to take care some of its issues.
