Bottom Line: 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.

Detailed Commentary

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.

Buying Experience

It's Target!  Gen-Xer haven.
