Good, but not for a coffee enthusaist Let me firs say, I used to work for Starbucks and was a Coffee Master. I am a bit of purist so I grade a machine a bit harder than the average joe.What I love:Cuisinart is one of the few companies that makes a coffee maker that brews at 190 degrees. (This is important because the flavor from your beans doesn’t fully extract if the water isn’t hot enough. This is usually one of the differences between a cheap coffee maker and a more expensive one. Cheap makers will heat the coffee hot with the hot plate, but it did not “brew” the coffee at the temperature it eventually gets to.)It doesn’t leak and the light when you fill a mug is a nice feature. All the parts come out for easy filling, rinsing, etc. YOu won’t be able to put this under a cabinet though because the top still has a lid that would be blocked.No leaks if the inside over flows or spills either! Any internal overflow drains into the drip tray which is a very nice feature…

Solid Carafeless/on-demand Coffee Maker Only had Cuisinart’s DCC-3000 for 4 days so really need more time for an evaluation. I’ve owned a few Hamilton Beach Brewstation carafeless models recently and I really like them. The Hamilton Beach units make great coffee but always develop leaking issues sooner or later. If you get to 2 years without a leaking issue you should feel fortunate.First, the DCC-3000 by Cuisinart is an entirely different level of machine. It’s very sturdy, well made and my unit purchased does not look like the picture in Amazon’s advertisement. It looks better. The power cord is VERY short, maybe 14-16″. Unless you use an extension cord you must locate it directly in front of a power outlet or in an area where it is not beneath an overhead kitchen cabinet. If under a cabinet, the cord just barely allows room to pull out from cabinet, lift the lid on top, and remove the coffee tank for cleaning, without unplugging the unit.The coffee dispenser turns on a soft LED light above…

please ban comments from people who don’t read manual So, my review is to the many people that didn’t read the manual and see that if you are only making a few cups of coffeethere is a 1-4 cups select button so the coffee is stronger because with a small amount of water running through it thereis an extra demand on the maker I just made the best cup of coffee I’ve had in 3 years with my new cuisinart coffee on demand. First I ran 12 cups of waterthrough the machine after soaking my filter for 20 minutes. Set the machine to 1-4 cups and pressed on. I did , because of past experience but an xtra bit of water in the machine to account for coffee filter basket saturation. The result was a really piping hot cup of rich coffee that allowed me to add a bit of non dairy creamer in it and not reducethe temperature. They include a manual so people will read it, please don’t comment on a machine that works properly until youdon’t use it according to design.
