I bought this because I loved the additional hot water feature. This coffee pot has been wonderful. The only thing is that the hot water sometimes takes longer to heat than I expected, but oh well. It makes great coffee, cleans up easily and I love the hot water feature. My kids also like it for making hot chocolate and oatmeal- better than worrying about them trying to heat water in the microwave!

Honestly, it's somewhat hard to find faults with this, except when you factor in price vs performance. It's a huge machine first of all, made mostly of plastic with a thin metal fascia. It works as advertised and brews very hot, however, it does nothing exceptionally well.

I am most offput I think by the excess size of the machine.

The carafe tends to be somewhat flimsy and creaky, and does not hold heat well, however the drip mechanism is very reliable. The overall style is something right out of 2007, which I think is actually around the time they started with this style, and at the time it may have been cutting edge but now, it just looks like something found at a major big box retailer.

Price, this is absolutely a terrible buy, right on the cusp of getting expensive, these have long rode that middle edge. Performance wise you would get the same for half the price with another brand, so in this case you are really completely paying for the brand name.

My advice, spend a littler more. Get a better brand, and stop supporting this one.

    Comments about Cuisinart Coffee Plus 12-Cup Programmable Coffee Maker with Hot Water System:

    I use this coffee maker to make coffe tea or even hot chocklet. I set it to start when I get up for work and its ready to go before im done. its nice if im in a hury that I can fill my cap as its still running. the last cup is just as good as the first. its also nice that if I forget to turn it off it will kick off on its own. Love it and will recomend it to all my friends.

          This excellent product to start your day with coffee
          Easy use any of the family and friends any timeIt has been a pleasure to use. Easy to set up, makes a delicious cup or cups of coffee, and the hot water feature eliminated another bulky appliance on our counter when I decided to a wanted tea or hot cocoa. The only down side is adding water to the machine as it is awkwardly placed, but use a funnel to pour the water into the side and bingo

            My old coffee brewer died and needed to be replaced. After searching the internet, I decided the Cuisinart was the best replacement for my needs. It has been a pleasure to use. Easy to set up, makes a delicious cup or cups of coffee, and the hot water feature eliminated another bulky appliance on our counter when I decided to a wanted tea or hot cocoa. The only down side is adding water to the machine as it is awkwardly placed, but use a funnel to pour the water into the side and bingo, it works. Adding water for hot water is much easier.
