I have been using the Cuisinart Grind & Brew for over a year now and have been pleased with its performance. It is easy to operate both the grinder and the brewing functions. The programmable start and Pause & Serve features make it convenient for busy mornings. Coffee brewed in this coffee maker is of consistent quality, which is important to me. The white model shows coffee stains very easily. (This, of course, is true of most any white coffee machine, though.) It is very hard to get the plastic parts of the carafe from showing coffee stains. Also, the carafe does not have a flip top lid. You have to take the lid off to fill or clean the carafe. It would be nice if this maching automatically determined how much coffee to grind. Instead, you put a certain amount of beans in the grinder and it just grinds what is in there. Still, it has been a worthwhile purchase. I brew several pots of coffee each day and this machine is still operating at its best after over a year of use.
