Comments about Cuisinart DGB-550BK Grind-and-Brew 12-Cup Automatic Coffeemaker, Black/Brushed Metal DGB%2D550BK:
This Cuisinart coffee maker was a great coffee maker! My husband is very picky about his coffee, whole bean only and is expensive coffee. So for Christmas a few years ago I picked him up this coffee maker. He was able to fill the grinder and the water reservoir the night before, set the timer and by the time he was up and finished with his shower the freshly ground coffee was ready for him! He Loves it! We did end up getting a single cup maker though within the last year or so since he is the only one who drinks coffee around here. But we do have this one still for when we have company, which is frequently around here.
We never had a major problem with performance other then if we forgot to do something like add water!
Ease of Cleaning
Cleaning the machine was pretty easy too. No real small parts that were not cleanable. Every once and awhile we would run a coffee cleaner through it which was pretty simple as well :)
Ease of Use
This machine was quite easy to use. poor the water in, put the beans in the grinder and set the alarm which you only had to do once unless you wanted to change the time. Easy!
The design was good, it was also good looking in our kitchen. The only flaw I saw was in the water reservoir. It was black and the steps were also black with white numbers on it. If you didn't have a good light on it was alittle difficult to see. But with a good light on it was fine.
Hasn't broken down yet... would repurchase in a heartbeat if needed!
