Pretty Kid Girl Rainbow Striped Slip Dress
Pretty Kid Girl Rainbow Striped Slip Dress Review
Kellie "she said what?!" T: My mother bought this for myself and my husband for xmess about 4 years ago. We were in love! The coffee is amazing, better than anything you can get at [email protected]*cks and waking up to freshly ground, freshly brewed coffee is a fine motivator to get out of bed in the morning.I like that you can set the length the hot plate stays on all the way up to 4 hours as well the ability to adjust the temperature of the hotplate. In the winter I like my coffee scalding but in warmer months I prefer it a bit less heated.Cleaning the machine - why is this an issue for people? It literally takes seconds to rinse the parts off under the tap. You don't want to use soap in a coffee maker ever. We use a kitchen scrub brush to rinse all the grounds off under the tap and then DRY THOROUGHLY before putting it back together. Not drying tends to cause the grounds to not transfer properly into the basket.Complaints:Honestly, 4 years wasn't enough time for me. I feel it should have lasted longer and even then, for two of those years, we were limping along having to coax it into operation most mornings. After a while some water or something got into the computer and we could no longer set the time or use any of the computerized controls, but still we pressed on. Eventually even our tricks to bypass the quirks stopped working and we threw it out. We plan to buy another very soon but are debating the thermal carafe version vs this one.This is a great machine, a bit over priced for the life span, but hopefully Cuisinart will pull their heads out of their nethers and make one that doesn't suck quite so much. Regradless we're still going to buy another. The quality of the coffee is unsurpassed by any other machine (save my pump espresso machine) and we love our coffee around here.
Maeve "Maeve": FIVE stars for excellent coffee and ease of use. I use the sink sprayer and have no trouble rinsing grounds out of coffeemaker. I have bought two for my use in our two homes and given two as gifts. Fresh ground coffee is the best! If you are going to buy this grinder, be sure to buy the gold-toned metal filter. Paper filters change the taste of the coffee.June 2009 - This lasted two years and I would buy it again if this item had not been discontinued by the manufacturer.
MICHAEL ACUNA: I purchased this Cuisinart coffee maker with the idea that I could save time having a machine that could both grind and brew. I followed the directions enclosed with this machine and found that it produced a weak, pallid cup of coffee. Ok, so no problem I just added more coffee beans and less water and so on and so on. What I noticed when I faithfully cleaned the parts of the machine daily is that there was quite a bit of coffee left in the grinder and the screen and that a cup of coffee was now costing me 60% more because of this design/operational flaw. In other words I was having to use 60% more beans in order to produce a strong cup of coffee because much of the bean grind was wasted. So figure it out. With coffee beans costing approx $10-$12 a pound [where I'm at] this coffee maker is nothing but a BIG OVERBLOWN WASTE OF MONEY! I would definitely not recommend this machine to anyone. In fact I'm going to repack it and give it to my hateful brother for Christmas.
Michael J. Hudson: Okay product, made nicly and durable. You get a good cup of coffee. After buying this I went and got a kuring k-cup which is much nicer.
Mitchell "Mitch": The design is such that you do not get maximum taste from the coffee beans. Stay away from this model. A chore to clean, plus mine broke about a year after I bought it.In a way, I am glad. I got a Melitta coffeemaker to replace it and the coffee tastes much better!
