    Update: The first one I bought lasted about 19 months. The price has increased almost 50% since I bought that one. When it died I tried a few other models that are less expensive. After a day or a week I returned those and ultimately bought another one of these. I’ve had my second one about 11 months now. I will likely never buy anything else. Best coffee I’ve ever been able to make at home. It used to be if you bought something from Cuisinart you could expect to still have it in five years. I wish that was still the case, but if I’m being completely honest I would buy a new one of these every year if I have to.

    I looked at every model of thermal carafe coffee maker and read a lot of reviews before choosing this one.

    This is, by far, the hottest coffee I have ever gotten from a home coffee maker. For me, this is a huge selling point.
    The thermal carafe keeps the coffee hot enough to enjoy without microwaving for at least 4 hours. Even after 6 or 7 hours the coffee is still warm and tasty. Because it does not use a warming plate to keep the coffee hot, the last drop of coffee tastes as good as the first. I will never go back to a glass caraf. I like the flavor of my coffee better than I have with any other coffee maker I’ve ever owned.
    The carafe is large. It holds almost 2 liters if you fill it to the 12 cup mark.
    The pour spout is designed specifically so It doesn’t dribble all over the place when I pour.
    It makes the coffee pretty quickly. Speed depends on the settings you use and, obviously, how much coffee you’re making. A full pot without the bold setting is read in about 11 or 12 minutes.
    It is completely programmable so you can setup the coffee to be ready at whatever time you’d like. It also has a “1-4” button for if you’re making 1 to 4 cups of coffee, and a “bold” button if you like stronger coffee. Those two buttons have a similar function. They slow the water flow over the grinds so you get the full flavor in a small pot, or a bolder flavor in any pot.
    A note about pouring because I’ve seen some reviewers that didn’t like how the pot pours. I don’t use the pot to fill the reservoir with water. I did that the first time and it pours way too slowly. That was aggravating. That may be why others complained. So I use a plastic pitcher for filling the reservoir. It appears that the top to the pot is designed to control the flow rate when pouring. I see this as a positive. When I’m filling my coffee cup I’m never wishing it would pour faster. I’m just glad coffee isn’t getting all over the counter, the floor, or me.

    I noticed some reviewers said the buttons stopped working after a few months or a year. I will say that it doesn’t take much force at all to get a response from whatever button you push. Because of those reviews I make a point of not using much force when I hit “Brew” or whatever button I’m pushing. If you poke them hard over and over, I could see them not working anymore after awhile.

    This coffee maker looks nice in my kitchen. If you have stainless steel appliances it will match. It takes up a very reasonable amount of space on my counter. The measurement lines are on the right side in the middle; however you can pour the water into the reservoir from either side. The reservoir is the whole back of the unit and is accepts water on either the left of the right side.

    The filter basket is cone shaped. It comes with a gold screen reusable filter insert. I still use a paper filter in that as well because I don’t like any sediment in my coffee. The paper cone filters cost a little more than standard filters but not so much that it is deal-breaker for me. A few extra dollars every 3 or 4 months.

    You have the option to use a charcoal water filter, but if you never use one it doesn’t change how to unit performs. The charcoal filter’s purpose is to filter things like the chloriine flavor out of your water. I use it.

    Some reviewers complained that the instructions are lacking in detail. Maybe the manufacturer has updated them since then. For the most part the setup is all pretty logical. The one thing I found difficult to figure out and not explained in the instructions was getting the charcoal filter into the filter holder. Turns out it is apparently so easy it looks hard. I included a few pics. On the stem portion of the charcoal filter holder is the word “open” with an arrow pointing downward. Right below that on the base is a little notch that sticks up. Just gently pull on the little notch and the front of the base flips open. The back left corner of the water reservoir has a slot cutout in the bottom to hold the base of the charcoal water filter setup. You just gently set it down in there. You don’t have to force it. And it stays in place. The last pic is of the cutout in the bottom of the water reservoir. Other than that setup was really easy. The filter basket only fits in one way. It’s a no-brainer to see where the water goes. The instructions tell you how to use all the buttons and features.

    There is a ready tone that beeps 5 times when the coffee is finished brewing. It’s pretty loud. If you don’t like that, you just press the “Tone” button near the clock face and the ready tone is off.

    It comes with one charcoal water filter, several cone shaped paper coffee filters, and a coffee scoop. Amazon sells the charcoal filters and the paper cone filters for very reasonable prices.

    I’ve been using this coffee maker since the day after Christmas 2019 and I have no complaints. I will update this review if anything changes. I’ve had a Bunn, and several models of Hamilton Beach over the course of 20 years. So far, this is the best coffee maker I’ve ever owned.

    This machine has pretty much any feature you could ask for. Pros: Looks beautiful on my counter, it’s not overly large and the stainless steel compliments my other appliances. Very simple to use, especially when programming your coffee for the morning. I like the fact that after the coffee brews you have an alert sound in which you can choose to turn off or on. Very easy to see the water level on the side when pouring the water in. Coffee is very hot when brewed. Coffee carafe keeps coffee hot for quite sometime. I left coffee in the carafe over night and it was still lukewarm the next day. Cons: When pouring the coffee from carafe you have to practically turn it up side down. You must pour slow or the coffee will spray all over. In order to clean the pot you’ll have to get a scrub brush as you can’t fit your hand in the carafe. Overall the pros out weigh the cons. I’m definitely keeping this machine it’s make a great cup of coffee!

    We have always had Cuisinart coffeemakers. Love them. Good quality, long lasting, easy to use, etc etc. So when my husband wanted to get a coffeemaker with a thermal carafe, he bought a Cuisinart. And because of “brand trust”, he didn’t check reviews. (Always check reviews.) Well, after struggling with this one for a few weeks, I finally put my cup down and insisted we get rid of it.

    The issues are pretty much as everyone else reports. First off, the carafe is uncomfortably heavy. Personally, I don’t have the forearms for it. YMMV. Next, it drips and splatters when you pour. And not a little. And it doesn’t matter how careful you try to be — use two hands, go slow — you WILL be wiping up your counter afterward. Every single time. And finally, if you want that last cup of coffee, you need to turn the pot almost completely upside down to get it.

    All of these flaws are just symptoms of the incredibly thick thermal wall. Which might keep your coffee hot for the whole day, but in the end, is that really necessary for many people? Oh, and for those few out there who actually wash your carafes instead of just swishing some water in it and calling it done? Well, those thick walls also mean you can’t get your hand in there. So it’s either the dishwasher or the “swishwasher” with this carafe.

    On the “pro” side? The reservoir has a measure stick, so it’s easy to fill — IF you have a pull out faucet. The coffeemaker makes decent coffee. And of course, the carafe keeps the coffee hot.

    This coffee maker takes some doing.
    You may not notice it at first, but when you lift the lid, the condensation runs not only into the well but also down to the hinge and tiny ledge at back, from which it drips worrisomely along the cord area and then onto your counter. You must wedge a thin cloth behind the hinge as you open it and simultaneously dry the other side with another cloth, and then repeat this maneuver a couple of times.
    The lip of the carafe is ingeniously designed so that the coffee fairly leaps forward in a neat parabola as you pour—until you reach the bottom of the pot, at which point the coffee trickles out in every direction. But if you remove the lid and turn the carafe smoothly and completely upside down, it will pour out its last cup perfectly.
    You can cut standard paper cone filters to fit, but because of the showerhead design, they will frequently fold over, wasting most of the coffee. So, instead, you must work out a routine for cleaning the reusable filter, which will clog your drain if you do not wipe the grinds out before rinsing it. On the considerable plus side, the reusable filter sports a flat bottom, making it easy to fill.
    If you cannot count on a dishwasher load for the carafe, you will have to use a bottle brush to clean it: in order to provide a takeoff ramp for the leaping pour spout, the carafe’s opening has been constricted so severely that a hand can’t reach through, unless your five-year-old volunteers for the job.
    So here are my recommendations to Cuisinart:
    1) Make a 6- or 8-cup model, plenty for most of us, so that you can keep the small rectangular footprint but set the lid and water farther in, making it easier to pour water in and harder for water to get out.
    2) Forget the thermos concept, with its tricky lid and spout design, and instead bring back the simple glass carafe and hot plate, and make it like the old models that stayed heated until you shut them off—via a huge back-lit button.
    3) Forget the programmable brew time. Coffee making is a morning activity. Who wants extra chores and wakeful aromas in the evening? And who wants the possibility of accidentally setting off a programmable brew and then not being around—a much greater fire hazard than a simple on/off hot plate.
    4) Ditch the LED display and special functions. I do thank Cuisinart, a thousand times over, for providing that mute button, but why do you need the beeps in the first place? Everyone hears the distinctive belch of a coffee maker when it’s done. All we need is one big bright Brew button.
    In the meantime, this Cuisinart model has the smallest footprint available for a nice brew that will stay heated for a number of hours.

    Yesterday I did this review giving this a one star rating, accusing it of being a leaker. I am now editing my opinion and this review, since upon better investigating, I learned that it does not leak. The culprit that was creating the moisture on the counter that I found as I pushed it back into place, is the lid. The brewing process creates a lot of moisture or condensation on the lid, and when raised to empty the coffee grounds, some of that moisture can run down the back of the maker. I verified that by holding a paper towel on the back while raising the lid. So the maker at least right now (it is two months old) does not leak and the issue with the moisture from the lid is easily caught and prevented from making it to the counter. Some other reviewers have fussed about the carafe being difficult to empty when filling the maker. I avoid that issue by falling back on the old “MR Coffee” solution of providing a measuring device made for pouring and setting the proper amount, by using an 8 cup measuring cup to fill the reservoir and the 8 cup brings it just short of or right at the fill line. In my mind the only thing keeping me from the 5 star rating is the little issue with the lid.

    It makes a great hot cup of coffee. Easy to use, good features- like the 1-4 cup option makes it hotter and slightly bolder. My wife complains that the lid on the thermal carafe has areas impossible to reach for cleaning thoroughly- without a small brush. This is 100% true so all the 5 star reviews are from Cuisinart lovers who can’t see a negative. Another large x is you need super tiny hands to get through the top of the carafe if you want to scrub it. Or you need a dedicated brush on a wire. Or you can put it in the dishwasher every night, but how do you do that if you want to preset your brew time for the first stroll into the kitchen?
    All in all it’s a good coffee maker, have had about 9 0r 10 in my 42 years. BUT it’s not perfect 😕

    Love this machine. The coffee is hot and you can customize how you want to make it. Bold or regular both are delicious. The insulated metal coffee pot keeps your coffee hot all day. Best coffeemaker we’ve ever owned.
