Not worth the money purchased one in 04/2014 after 2 months coffee pot leaked all over so I returned and got a replacement in 06/2014. Now here it is 07/31/2014,and the second coffee pot does not keep the coffee warm. So I will never buy a cuisinart product ever again.

Comment:
I use this coffee maker everyday and I really enjoyed using it. However this is my second pot in about 6 months. The first just stopped working after the first month. I returned it for another one. This one leaked coffee once and then continued to perform normally. But it started to leak coffee again and will no longer brew without leaking from the dispenser spout. Two huge messes are enough.
How long have you owned it:
Three-to-six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
