Comment:
Lid Latch broke after 3 months of daily use. I have a big rock holding the lid down now. So much for my stylish coffee maker. Lid not listed in parts on their web site.<br />I am confused as to how CR can keep reporting this unit as one of the best with all of these negative reviews. I feel CR should pressure manufacturer for a refund or replacement lid for all the bad units. I am afraid to go by your rating on a new one.<br /><br />Mark

Comment:
I purchased this model last year based on Consumer Reports' review. Yesterday I found coffee all over the countertop. The reason was the cheap and poorly designed rubber gasket that fits just above the pot, ensuring that no liquids escape. Because this gasket gets pushed back and forth every time the pot is removed, it has split along the front. It is not a user-replaceable part. <br /><br />Surely someone has designed a sturdier coffee pot than this.

Comment:
My second Cuisinart, always worked well for me.<br />controls are slanted up so I could see them. Some coffee makers are are vertical, if on a low counter or table, (or your a tall person) difficult to see and use.<br /><br />Bad hinge on cover, will break after a while, at least mine did.
