  • I expected better tasting coffee from Cuisinart Burr Grind and Brew

    Dec 16, 2008 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Brews coffee and functions mechanically as it should. Attractive & solidly built
    Cons: Lukewarm coffee, must warm carafe, grinder noise, can't grind without brewing right away

    Summary: The performance of Cuisinart Grind & Brew reminds me of the saying: Pretty Is as Pretty Does. Unfortunately, Cuisinart needs to take another shot at coffee fame with this luxury model ~ in short, it does make ... read more

  • A 12 CUP Thermal Caraffe ! Finally !!!!

    Jan 26, 2014 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: 12 cup thermal, burr grinder quieter then others, good hot coffee
    Cons: Bean shute could have larger capacity, Paper filters don't work well, thermal caraffe closing mechanism!

    Summary: I converted over from a Jura-Capresso CoffeeTEAM TS 10 Cups Coffee Maker that I had been loyal to for several years, as I was fed up with the constant break down (or rather rust-down) of that machine. This review covers the ... read more

  • Improvement over first generation, but not great

    Jan 5, 2012 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Easier to clean, sleek
    Cons: Odd carafe, no grind adjustment, uses more beans, flat basket, flavor isn't that grand

    Summary: I bought the first generation of this coffee maker and couldn't deal with the mess that it made. It was a lot of work to take apart and clean. This version is sleeker, better, and easier to clean, but it has many quirks. I like the design of the basket ... read more

  • The WORST coffee maker ever!

    Nov 17, 2011 by
    Not yet rated.
    Pros: Metal carafe.
    Cons: Bad design.  Messy.  Hard to clean.  Grinder jams easily, repeatedly.  No useful cleaning tools.

    Summary: Trusting the Cusinart name, I purchased the Grind & Brew DGB-900BC  expecting to benefit from a well-made, efficient coffee maker, able to reliably deliver a delicious fresh cup of hot coffee to my guests and myself. Now, after a ... read more

  • Starts out strong - finishes in the garbage...

    Aug 21, 2011 by
    Not yet rated.
    Pros: It sometimes pours hot water through grinds to yield a luke-waram cup of coffee.
    Cons: Unreliable grind output
    Warm, not hot coffee
    Grinder plugs up
    Messes all over

    Summary: I REALLY wanted to like this coffee maker. I was impressed by the fact that it had a burr grinder, a timer, strength control and thermal carafe all in one package. Price was pretty high, but hey, you need a good cup of coffee! Grinder ... read more

  • Messy and Complicated

    Jun 25, 2011 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Coffee is good. 
    Cons: Messy, confusing, complicated, too tall, and awkward.

    Summary: I wouldn’t buy this or any other self-grinding coffee maker again. I expected less mess, but this is much messier than a normal drip machine, it’s complicated to use, and it’s accident prone.  The extra mess comes from ... read more

  • Liked our Melita better

    Jan 8, 2011 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Stays hot for several hours after brewing without a warming plate.
    Cons: Requires often cleanings, and without a little ingenuity it makes weak coffee.

    Summary:    After our Melita grind and brew started leaking every other pot we purchased the Cuisanart. So why didn't we just buy another Melita like we had? They quit making them. In comparing the two, this one is more mainenance in that it must be ... read more

  • Hate this thing

    Dec 3, 2010 by
    Not yet rated.
    Pros: Looks good?
    Cons: Cuisnart/$$$/junk

    Summary: You wanna grind fresh coffee, with the kind of beans that are roasted perfectly and still oily? Don't use this machine. The beans don't travel down the hopper, they just get stuck and the coffee brews weak. Shallow slope design does not aid in bean ... read more

  • Cuisinart Grind and Brew DGB900BCU Coffee Maker: A Total Improvement

    Nov 14, 2010 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: many improvements over older model
    Cons: still has a flat basket, huge coffee waster until you fine-tune

    Summary: I spent over five years with my Cuisinart Grind and Brew Coffeemaker DGB-500BK, I was fed up. What had seemed like a godsend at first had become a ... read more

  • the worst machine ever

    Pros: when it actually made coffee, it was good
    Cons: just doesnt work

    Summary: My wife an I are avid coffee drinkers and when our krupps grind and brew quit on us we decided to switch to the cuisinart dgb900.  Having many other ciusunart kitchen products we thought 'how could we go wrong?' ohhhh but we could.  After 4 ... read more

  • Very disappointed

    Pros: styling
    Cons: poor instructions, temperature of coffee, too much maintenance

    Summary: We purchased this machine over a year ago to replace our other Cuisinart, and I would not buy another one. I wind up swearing at the machine every morning when I go to make coffee. I agree with the other reviews about coffee temperature and having to ... read more

  • Definately gets me out of bed in the morning

    Feb 11, 2010 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Looks great, good tasting coffee
    Cons: Bad design, breaks a lot, uses a lot of beans

    Summary: My main complaint about this unit has to do with the design flaw.  We use the automatic timer and 4 out of 7 days we wake up to a continuous beeping and clicking because for some reason either the basket over-rotates or the metal door gets stuck and ... read more

  • A Very Good Cup of Coffee

    Jun 21, 2009 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great Taste, Convenient, and Attractive
    Cons: Carafe, Auto Shut Off is Annoying, Very Loud

    Summary: I really don't understand why there are so many negative reviews out there regarding this model. I have had my Cuisinart Grind & Brew DGB-900 12 Cup Coffee Maker for a little over a year now and have been a very satisfied customer. My wife and ... read more

  • Now we're spoiled.

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Great tasting coffee! Stays hot for the next person, three hours later.
    Cons: The grinder is a little loud at 2AM. Carafe pours slowly.

    Summary: Our old Braun was on it's last leg, but had served us well. It was time for something new.We've had the Cuisinart DGB-900BC for a week now. I had read the reviews and found a good sale price, but kept the receipt, just in case. But we are ... read more

  • Good coffee, but not without quirks.

    Feb 11, 2009 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great coffee, reasonably easy maintenance and operation, all-in-one design negates need for a separate grinder.
    Cons: Low brew temperature, absolutely silly caraffe design, small bean hopper, a bit of extra maintenance.

    Summary: After having a great cup of coffee from a friends Cuisinart Grind and Brew over Christmas we purchased one ourselves.   It seemed like the ideal machine - fresh ground coffee, an "all in one" appliance, and the supposed good name of "Cuisinart" ... read more

    Jan 12, 2009 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Easy to use, sturdy, controls are intuitive, multiple options for different strengths.  Delicious coffee!  
    Cons: Doesn't stay "coffe hot" for hours.  Minimal maintenance.

    Summary: We couldn't be happier with this machine.  It truely makes the best cup of coffee we have ever had.  Unfortunately it has turned me into a coffee snob and now, most of the time, I am not satisfied with coffee from other coffee ... read more

  • Best coffeemaker I've ever owned!

    Nov 7, 2008 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Thermal pot keeps coffee hot all day without changing the taste, and very user friendly.
    Cons: If I HAD to think of something - re-usable filter takes longer to clean.

    Summary: Love this coffeemaker, I won't ever go back to a glass pot after this! Coffee stays hot all day! Plus the coffee quality itself is excellent! The grinder is an optional feature, you don't have to use it everytime you make coffee, as long as you ... read more

  • The Good and the Bad

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: strength & grind controls for a great cup; less mess than using a separate grinder
    Cons: Have for 6 mos. worked great. now buttons don't always work

    Summary: Much less mess than grinding in separate grinder. I brew enough for one Starbucks travel mug as I don't like my coffee sitting in a carafe. I am very particular and prefer fresh. I use cool filtered water (PUR) and most often, do not have a problem ... read more

  • Takes a few steps out of the process...

    Sep 15, 2008 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Makes great cup of coffee... allows a lot of control over strength.
    Cons: So many pieces in this machine, worried it'll break. Very technical when first opened.

    Summary: I work for a coffee company and this item was one of the products we offered in our catalog. I had heard great things bout it and wanted to give it a try.The Cuisinart DGB-900 definitely has more features then I have ever seen offered in a ... read more

    Pros: Great coffee, not much hassle.
    Cons: Loud while grinding, takes a few minutes, odd pouring carafe

    Summary: I had the first model of the Cuisinart Grind and Brew for several years, and while I was happy with the coffee, it came with a price. Taking apart all the parts and cleaning was a pain. Eventually the basket got stuck, so it was time to replace & ... read more
