Those who gave it a 1, and returned it, didn't do their homework. I had my machine for less than 3 months and it started to not drip the brew. I went on line. I needed to clean it out. Also, all I had to do was turn the machine off for a minute, and then it ran like a gem. I've had the machine for almost 4 years and still love it. It's UBER easy to use. Love the fact that all the parts are dishwasher safe. Also, Trader Joe's started carrying the Kcups. I can still use loose ground coffee with it as well.
How long have you owned it:

This coffee maker was just plain Junk
Coffee Doesn't Stay Hot
Failed In Under 30 Days
Long Brew Time
I have nothing good to say about it. This is a Keurig K-cup with a Cuisinart name slapped on it. <br /><br />I bought it on Dec. 21, 2013 and returned it January 15, 2014 because the pump started to fail and did not deliver a full cup of coffee. The coffe was cold by the time it brewed 1/2 of what it was supposed to brew. The month I had it included a week where the maker was not used because I was away. <br /><br />Even their customer service was bad or at best uninformed. They told me it needs descaling every thirty days when the manual says every 3-6 months.<br /><br />The only good thing about this product was that I could return it to the store where I bought it for credit. Bed Bath and Beyond turned out to be the best thing about the product because they took it back no questions asked.<br /><br />Do not buy this piece of junk!
