I have one cup of coffee daily. This machine was fantastic until it didn't work anymore. I changed the filters, cleaned it a few times with vinegar as directed, but after 13 months it just stopped working. It made some funny noises on and off for a week, and then the pump just quit. I was shocked with its death, since I have a 25 yr old coffee maker that still works fine in the pantry. (only spent $20 for it) I spent a good sum of money on this single serve coffee maker and it breaks in just over a year? Ridiculous. I am very dissapointed in this product.

I thought investing a couple hundred dollars in a fine coffee maker to spoil myself would be a nice treat. Turns out to be a lesson learned. Nothing could have prepared me for the nightmare I've endured with this machine and their customer service which I should have had on speed dial after two years. I followed all the appropriate cleaning instructions, purchasing new filters, I descaled when necessary, (every month) seemed like. All to no avail, the machine just simply shut off one day. Absolutely no power whatsoever. I did not have any power shortages in my home, the outlet it was plugged into was fine, of course I tried another outlet just in case. Nothing worked. Customer service said well, based on your serial number the unit is beyond your warranty and since there's no power in it we just simply are unable to assist you So, now I have a $200+ dollar paperweight. I will never purchase another one of their products. Poor quality, poor customer service. This only after a short two year purchase and having to baby care for it the entire time. They should put this on the outside of the box as a warning. At least you'll know before hand if you want to invest in their cheap products. BUYER BEWARE!!

I just can't figure out why anyone would give this brewer a score of less than 4, and especially not a score of 1. We have owned our Cuisinart SS700 for over two years and as long as I clean it when it begins to slow down, I won't have any problems. We probably brew a minimum of 8 cups of coffee or tea a day, every day and this Cuisinart is up for that and more. The key to keeping our machine working well is to follow what the manufacturer suggests for cleaning (vinegar, plus clean the openings on the needles with an opened paper clip) and do it on a regular basis. We have owned 3 different Keurig machines as well as the Breville version (which I had thought would do a better job but didn't) and they have all stopped working between 3 months and a year. The Cuisinart has not conked out in almost 2.5 years, and for that I feel it's the BEST of the single cup brewers by far.
