Drips everywhere

 

The only reason I tolerate the drip is because it was $39. I've had Gevalia coffee makers that I spent $10 at savers that were better.

It brews coffee like it should.

It drips everytime you pour water or coffee. It makes a huge mess and I've never had this issue with coffee pots no matter the price.

CUISINART TOP QUALITY

 

Thanks to Cuisinart for their quality in appliances. My toaster is still making great toast 10 years strong and still going. Thanks to Newegg for my computer needs and other products over the many years I've purchased from them. The fast shipping is...

I've been buying Cuisinart products for over 10 years now because they last for years and years. You can buy cheaper products, but as the saying goes..."you get what you pay for". My other Cuisinart Coffee Maker still works after 5 years, but i...

good with a few quirks

 

comes with a plastic filter (for the coffee grounds). I replaced with natural paper (use once).

Looks nice, works well,

when pouring it drips from the bottom (of the carafe), annoying the opening for the water reservoir is a bit too small

Not Worth 109.99 Price Tag

 

You don't realize how important the location of the water reservoir is until until you have this coffee maker. It literally sucks. If that was better I would give this 5 eggs. Because of how difficult it is to pour water, 3 eggs is generous. R & D must...

32 days and it broke

 

bought because it was about 5 bucks more than replacement carafe

worked good with redesigned basket until it broke two days out of the 30 RMA period... which by the way doesn't account for shipping so I've actually had it less than 30 days.

generally flimsy-er particularly the basket

Great price @ $39.00.

It's a coffee maker. It makes coffee.

Cuisinart DCC-500

 

Works good. Easy to operate. Good price.

LCD display is extremely hard to read. Would be better if it was lit. Coffee pot will dribble all over unless you pour VERY slowly.

Cuisinart DCC-500

 

Very good coffee maker. The first one arrived non-functional and that's the reason for the 4 egg rating. I used Cuisinart for many years and expect to continue to do so.

none
