Good daily cup of coffee, thermal coffeepot is extremely convienent.
Positive Product Points
Attractive chrome finish. Thermal coffeepot is included which keeps coffee warm for about 4-6 hours.
Negative Product Points
Clean-up can be obnoxious. The grinder is very loud.
I've owned two models of the Cusinart Grind and Brew. The previous model was somewhat flimsy and survived about a year of daily use. The newer model appears to benefited from greater quality construction and is a vast improvement.
Model Reviewed Cuisinart DGB-600BC Grind and Brew, Brushed Chrome
Appearence ----------------- Chrome finish with black molding. This is a sexy, upright drip coffee machine. Looks great in the kitchen. It is extremely tall, which may be a problem for those putting their coffee pot under cabinets and the like. For myself however, the counter space savings are extremely valuable.
Freebies ------------- Thermal coffeepot, water filter, permament gold filter. The thermal coffee port is extremely handy.
Actual Coffee ------------------- The grind quality is a vast improvement over the previous model. The grind is coarse (suitable for drip coffee), and consistent. It makes a solid cup of coffee, and the thermal pot does a wonderful job of maintaining temperature for about 4 hours. After that, it's time to make a new pot.
