Amazon.com: Customer reviews: Cuisinart Coffee-on-Demand Automatic Programmable Coffeemaker, 12 Cup Removable Double Walled Coffee and Water Reservoir, with Dispensing Lever, and Auto Brew and 1-4 Cup Brewing, with Auto Clean Feature, Permanent Gold Tone and Charcoal Filter Included
We first bought this coffeemaker three years ago and it has been a good coffee maker! After three years, the gauge to show how much coffee is in the pot stopped working; However, the machine still works well and makes a great pot of coffee fairly quickly . Even with the issue of the gauge, we are buying another one. It keeps the coffee hot up to four hours without burning the it, The timer & clock are very easy to program, the water reservoir detaches and is easy to fill, and you can fill a coffee mug or a carafe easily.
One reviewer wrote that it leaked coffee over the counter. We had a similar incident; however it was user error. One must make sure that all parts are seated correctly, ergo, that incident only happened once and was never repeated. After buying several coffee makers over so many years, we are re-purchasing this product and I'm sure we will enjoy it as much as ever.
If I have one complaint about the coffee maker, it's the size. Because the water reservoir is on the side of the coffee maker, it takes up more room on the counter. If you have a limited amount of counter space, I'd still say go for it. The benefit of the detachable & easy-to-fill reservoir is a bonus; BTW, the water reservoir contains a small charcoal filter which last for quite a while and I like the fact that it adds another layer of filtration of the water
I have purchased this Cuisinart Coffee Maker 3 years ago because I was tired of having to replace broken glass carafes over the past 35 years. I also love the feature of no carafe because of not having to wash the carafe over again when you need to make another pot of coffee. Which is convenient when entertaining. The coffee is hot and stays hot. The easy lighted one cup at a time pour is also a great feature. Several of my friends have said they like it so much that they will definetly purchase one soon. Love this coffee maker and will buy again!
Had several brands of this type of coffee maker and at most they only lasted about 3 to 6 months. Started leaking from the same spot at the showerhead below the dispenser lever. Now this one I have had for about two years and never had a problem with it. Two years is pretty damn good if you ask me unless you have a brand new 1950's coffeemaker. I was very happy with this coffee maker and I'm going to get a new right after this review.
