Cuisinart DGB-900BC Burr Grind & Brew Thermal 12-Cup Automatic Coffeemaker Metallic Purple

 

Unfortunately it doles out weak pots of coffee and is a pain to clean. You'd be better served buying a standalone burr grinder or even a cheap blade chopper paired with a competent drip brewer such as the Bunn Velocity Brew BT or Technivorm Moccamaster...

The Cuisinart Burr Grind and Brew Thermal Coffeemaker combines a precise burr grinder and standard drip coffeemaker in one device. The handsome machine also boasts a thermal carafe to keep coffee warm for hours and is programmable.

This coffee maker is big and has lots of parts you must clean regularly. The appliance also makes weak coffee and it's tricky to fill its water tank without spilling.

The Cuisinart Burr Grind and Brew Thermal Coffeemaker tries to merge two appliances into one but you're better off buying a grinder and quality brewer separately.

Cuisinart DGB-900 Burr Grind & Brew Thermal 12-Cup Automatic Coffeemaker review

 

I'm sure that as long as people have made coffee at home they've dreamed of a gadget that could tackle both sides of the coffee creation equation, a grinder-and-brewer combo. Cuisinart's DGB-900 Burr Grind and Brew Thermal Coffeemaker represents the...

Cuisinart Burr Grind & Brew Automatic Coffeemaker #DGB-900BC

 

Among our top-rated models, the Cuisinart Burr Grind & Brew Thermal 12-Cup Automatic Coffeemaker is one of the only coffeemakers we tested to brew at hot enough temperatures to extract the best flavor from ground coffee. Perfect if you like to grind...

It fails to deliver a hot pot of coffee

 

I trusted the name, so I bought on Amazon. I've never had a thermal pot, always glass. Seemed worth the trade. I just couldn't quite get a piping hot pot. I even put really hot water in the pot to warm it up. Used that same water to brew with. I...

It grinds and brews

Gets cold FAST

Best home coffee maker I've ever owned

 

I've had my Cuisinart DGB-900BC coffee maker for years. Parts are easily ordered from manufacturer and reasonably priced. At least once a week I have to pop the bin off the top and brush out the chute. I like my coffee STRONG, hot and made with really...

Many settings to brew the perfect cup at the perfect strength

Takes up room on countertop

Poor dysfunctional design

 

For such a large appliance company you would think these guys would at least send their product home with the designer to test out. The shoot from the grind to the basket is square and unappeasable - and with squared of edges, clogs readily. So trying...

clogs and hard to clean
