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.

Comment:
This is my second of these coffee makers. The previous one is still functioning in my second home. This one , after close to a year, is not keeping coffee as hot as it should. I may need to return. <br />This version has a removable water reservoir which is great to fill and replace and clean. A light has been added to the fill your cup section which is nice. The unit is a bit shorter than the other so, all of my travel mugs will not fit under to fill even when the plate is removed (they make it to do this so you can fill taller mugs). <br /><br />Overall still love these coffee makers, they have outperformed any others I have had.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

This is our second Cuisinart. This DCC3000model started leaking from the bottom as did our last cusinart ( I forgot the model ) but similar features, inside tank. I wouldn't expect soemthing that cost $100 to leak so soon. I think both had a gasket on the bottom that need to be replaced. I would not buy again.
