Dear Cuisinart - how did this pass your quality standard?

Pros:It does make coffee

Cons:only makes 6 cups
overflows
messy to clean

The Bottom Line: For the money, look at another model.  The Cuisinart seems to be a good brand, but they missed the mark on this coffee maker.


I bought the Cuisinart Grind and Brew for around $80-90 with a coupon from Bed Bath & Beyond to replace my Capresso (which I LOVED).  I was looking for a good quality coffee maker with a stainless steel insulated thermos because I generally am rather clumsy with glass and hate finding replacement carafes.

When I did my research this machine rated pretty highly, so I bought it.  Here is my experience: 
The coffee maker is not capable of actually making a 10-cup capacity.  It will allow you to add water to the 10-cup water line, but when you turn the machine on, it starts overflowing at cup 6. The coffee filter is a fine sieve gold mesh filter (great), but apparently it does not allow the water to move through the filter fast enough to prevent overflow.  I buy pre-ground coffee from the super market, so we're not talking about espresso-ground coffee.  The insulated thermos does not keep the coffee hot at all.  To my point, I microwave my first cup of coffee because it does not brew or keep the coffee hot.

This machine will grind beans and make your coffee fresh; however, I gave up on this method because the grinder was too difficult to keep clean.  In fact, you have to dis-assemble the entire until every time you make a pot of coffee to prevent clogging.

The lid to the carafe is very difficult to remove (think child-proof cap meets tightly sealed spagetti sauce jar).  Yeah, it takes some serious wrist action to open the carafe to clean.  This would certainly be a problem for anyone with weak wrists.


I cannot be the only user who has had this experience, but from the reviews I read prior to my purchase, I am disappointed in this machine.  I hate unnecessary waste, but I don’t feel right about even donating this machine to Goodwill.  I don’t want to give someone else this problem.
