Positive Product Points

Well built, attractive additon to our kitchen; after some experimentation, makes a good cup of coffee.

Negative Product Points

Propensity to drip down  back of cofee maker, glass carafe flimsy and seems prone to breakage.

Detailed Commentary

Was very disappointed in the first few pots of coffee brewed with the Cuisnart.  However, after experimenting with a variety of grinds, (using my Capresso burr grinder), I hit upon a medium grind that suits the machine perfectly.  I believe this machine to be unusually sensitive to grind.  Also, using the proportions of 2 rounded tabespoons of coffee to 6 oz. of water.  Coffee is now full-bodied, aromatic, and quite enjoyable - coupled with the convenience, I don't think it can be beat.

Cuisnart appears to be very well built and makes an attractive additon to our kitchen.  The ablility to dial down the warmng plate is a big advantage, as is the abiltiy to adjust shut off time for the warming plate.

Of course, if must have a really, really good cup of coffee, I've got my Bodum French Press right next to the Cuisinart!

Buying Experience

Bed Bath & Beyond and the 20% off coupon can't be beat.
