I converted over from a Jura-Capresso CoffeeTEAM TS 10 Cups Coffee Maker that I had been loyal to for several years, as I was fed up with the constant break down (or rather rust-down) of that machine.

Best Grind and Brew Yet!

Pros Easy clean up, beans stay dry, makes great coffee.
Cons None.
Recommended it? Yes

This is our third version of Cuisinart's Grind & Brew coffee pot.  We gave away the other two to get the latest upgraded version.  This is by far the best version!  Easy to use and great coffee.  No big deal to clean up between pots of coffee. Read full review »


Improvement over first generation, but not great

Pros Easier to clean, sleek

Recommended it? No

I bought the first generation of this coffee maker and couldn't deal with the mess that it made. It was a lot of work to take apart and clean. This version is sleeker, better, and easier to clean, but it has many quirks. I like the design of the basket and the basket holder, although it's flat, so... Read full review »


Messy and Complicated

Pros Coffee is good. 
Cons Messy, confusing, complicated, too tall, and awkward.
Recommended it? No

I wouldn’t buy this or any other self-grinding coffee maker again. I expected less mess, but this is much messier than a normal drip machine, it’s complicated to use, and it’s accident prone. 
The extra mess comes from several directions.  There are extra... Read full review »

Pros Stays hot for several hours after brewing without a warming plate.
Cons Requires often cleanings, and without a little ingenuity it makes weak coffee.
Recommended it? Yes

   After our Melita grind and brew started leaking every other pot we purchased the Cuisanart. So why didn't we just buy another Melita like we had? They quit making them. In comparing the two, this one is more mainenance in that it must be cleaned thoroughly and often or the water will... Read full review »

I spent over five years with my Cuisinart Grind and Brew Coffeemaker DGB-500BK, I was fed up. What had seemed like a godsend at first had become a nightmare. The grinder parts got so difficult to remove that I would just wipe out the grinder in the machine, and finally, gave up on it altogether. So... Read full review »

This machine makes a nice cup of coffee but the grinder stopped working 3 months after I bought it.

We have been brewing coffee with a Braun grinder for years and loved it, but we wanted less clutter and we were able to get rid of the grinder but not the carafe, because we had to continue using our Thermos one as it was easy to pour and keep coffee hot.  I am disappointed in...

Pros Looks great, good tasting coffee
Cons Bad design, breaks a lot, uses a lot of beans
Recommended it? No

My main complaint about this unit has to do with the design flaw.  We use the automatic timer and 4 out of 7 days we wake up to a continuous beeping and clicking because for some reason either the basket over-rotates or the metal door gets stuck and the coffee grinds bind up.  I know this...

Recommended it? No

We have had our coffee maker for a year.  We only use it on the weekends.   About once a month, the grinder stops working and this is because the powder from the coffee grounds seems to get caked in the grinder.  The only way to get it out is to run hot water into the little opening...

Cuisinart DGB-900BC Grind & Brew Thermal 12-Cup Automatic Coffeemaker, Brushed Stainless/Black

Easily brew up to 12 cups of great-tasting coffee with this 24-hour fully programmable coffeemaker. The unit comes equipped with a built-in burr grinder, which automatically grinds beans right before brewing, and its grind-control function makes it easy to program the amount of coffee to grind--from 2 to 12 cups. In addition, its strength selector allows for choosing from strong, medium, or mild coffee. The unit's bean hopper holds up to a half pound of beans and comes with a sealed lid to prevent moisture. Other highlights include automatic shut-off after brewing, a grind-off option, and an integrated 2- to 4-cup feature, as well as a Gold tone commercial-style permanent filter and charcoal water filter to remove impurities, and a brew-pause function for sneaking a cup midbrew. A 12-cup (5 ounces each) double-wall insulated thermal carafe comes included, which seals in heat and freshness so the last cup tastes as good as the first. The coffeemaker measures 10-2/3 by 8-4/9 by 16-1/4 inches and carries a three-year limited warranty. From the Manufacturer The Cuisinart DGB-900BC Fully Automatic Burr Grind & Brew Thermal Coffeemaker The Cuisinart Burr Grind & Brew Thermal Coffeemaker The burr mill grinder in the new Fully Automatic Burr Grind & Brew Thermal Coffeemaker is responsible for the superior coffee flavor that you can experience. Add to that the pleasure of choosing the flavor strength you like best, easy-to-use controls, and a thermal carafe that keeps coffee hot and fresh for hours and you'll understand why we say this Cuisinart coffeemaker is a grind above the rest. The Quest for a Perfect Espresso It is generally agreed that there are four basic elements critical to the perfect cup: Element 1. Water: Coffee is 98% water. Often overlooked, the quality of the water is as important as the quality of the coffee. A good rule of thumb is that if your water doesn't taste good from the tap, it won't taste any better in your coffee. That's why Cuisinart has added a water filter to the Fully Automatic Burr Grind & Brew Coffeemaker. The charcoal water filter removes chlorine, bad tastes and odors, for the purest cup of coffee every time. Element 2. Coffee: While the bulk of the liquid is water, all of the flavor should be from the coffee. To achieve the same great quality of coffee you receive at a coffee bar, you need to use the same quality beans. Buy the beans fresh and whole, only about a two weeks' supply at a time for maximum freshness. Once the coffee bean is broken, its flavor degrades very quickly. That's why the Fully Automatic Burr Grind & Brew Coffeemaker grinds your coffee just prior to brewing. If it is not practical to buy small supplies, we recommend you separate larger amounts of beans into one to two week portions immediately after purchase, and freeze them in airtight containers. The best way to maximize freshness is to minimize exposure to air, light and moisture. So, once beans have been removed from the freezer, maintain them in a sealed container at room temperature, since damaging condensation occurs every time the beans are removed from the freezer or refrigerator. Note that some coffee experts advise against freezing dark-roast beans, because freezing can cause the oils to coagulate. Other experts disagree. We suggest you experiment and decide yourself. We recommend keeping the hopper at least half way full. Be sure that you have sufficient amount of beans in your hopper for the amount of coffee you intend to brew. Although it is preferable to use fresh, whole beans, you can make coffee in the coffeemaker using pre-ground beans. To do so, turn off the grinder by pressing the Grind Off button before turning on the unit. It is suggested to use 1 level scoop of ground coffee per cup and adjust the amount to your taste. The maximum capacity for ground coffee is 16 level scoops, using either a paper or permanent filter. Exceeding this amount may cause overflow. Element 3. Grind:
