Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Timmer Good Tasting Coffee, Not as well Built as it should be for a Cusinart
I have not had good luck during the past couple years with coffee makers. For 28-years I had an inexpensive Black & Decker coffee that I absolutely loved. It made better coffee than friends who spent $100's for theirs. It was a their SpaceMaker Coffeemaker model. Unfortunately they discontinued it and replaced with a fancy one for considerably more money that doesn't produce near the results. I've purchased 3 different coffee makers over the past year & a half. A "Mr. Coffee" that completely died at 6 months, a Black & Decker that I didn't like almost immediately and gave away, and a Bunn. The Bunn was good, but I had to use twice the amount of coffee to produce good tasting coffee. It had none of the features that are standard with other coffee makers; i.e., clock, automatic pot warmer shutoff, ability to set time to automatically brew. I returned the Bunn and purchased this Cuisinart 4-Cup. It's basically well made but could be better; some parts seem cheap. It does have an automatic pot warmer shutoff, but it shuts off in just 30 minutes, which isn't good for me. The brewing temperature could definitely be hotter. My coffee doesn't get anywhere close to hot until it's been in the pot on the warmer for several minutes. I thought it would have been nice if they had included at least a starter pack of filters because once I got it I had to go to the store before I could brew; low class from a high-end company. I had one heck of a time figuring out how to remove the plastic lid from the stainless steal pot because it was counter intuitive for me -- you remove it from the back (by the handle), not the front as with most. I'm going to keep this one but they could have made far better with very little effort and expense.

This little coffee pot is just what we were looking for. Makes a good cup of joe AND has an auto shut-off.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by alex Excellent idea stainless steel versus glass!
I had a compact coffee maker with glass kettle and gave it away because I did not want to risk dropping it and breaking it but this one is so convenient with the aluminum kettle
