On one occasion, the basket did not completely snap back in place (probably stupid-user error!)
The filter basket doesn‘t like being manually moved back into the brewing position.

Detailed Commentary

I really enjoy this product.  I had originally purchased the Cuisinart Grind and Brew but after several pots of coffee and several cleanings, there remained a "burnt" taste to every pot, so I returned it.  Probably a bad unit.

I found the Coffee Team for $109.  (Model 451) The coffee is consistently great.  The grinder is much quieter than the Cuisinart G&B and it automatically grinds the correct amount of coffee.  The G&B requires you place the correct amount of beans into the grinder for each pot.

To grind coffee, you manually move the filter basket under the grinder.  The machine grinds according to your settings and then the basket snaps back into position over the coffeepot for brewing.  If you move the basket under the grinder and change your mind, you can manually move the basket back but Capresso recommends this process less than 20 times.  This inconvenience has been corrected in the newest model (452).  I haven‘t found this to be an issue.

The machine is easy to use and simple to clean.

Highly recommended.
