Still needs one feature improved....
We have had two of these machines now. We love the grinder (burr). We did a lot of research before finding and buying this machine. However we still have one complaint that they need to fix on this machine. We have had the bean hopper break on us 3 times now, and let me tell you that it is frustrating, time consuming and costly to keep replacing time and again. The need to replace the fixtures with metal not plastic!!!! The plastic pieces keep snapping when you lock and unlock the hopper to remove it and clean the machine out, the beans get in the way and "snap"! The next thing you know you are on this site.... :(

A solid workhorse
We've owned this machine for 5 years and use it daily, sometime several batches. Works like a champ. The key I believe is to clean out the chute, the bottom of the hopper, and the top ring of the burr grinder after every hopper load. We use a plastic tool that looks like a hockey stick from a previous grinder to clean out the chute. Had to replace the rotating disk on top of the basket once, no problem getting parts on line.
The grinder is loud, but when set for a programmed time in the morning helps wake me up. That, and the delicious aroma of fresh ground coffee wafting through the house...

Can't Live Without It!
We have had this coffee maker for about 8 years - we use it everyday of the week - it's also gone through several adult parties as we like to entertain and have a large family and a few teenage kids parties and after prom parties where it's probably made 8 pots of coffee in a row without fail. It faithfully woke my daughter up at 6:30 every morning as she slept on the main floor :) That was her only complaint - the noise it made. However, the lovely fresh brewed coffee highly outweighs the noise. You'll need to make a few pots of coffee with it before you get the right strength control. But when you get it to where you like it, you'll never go back to a regular coffee maker. You'll also want to play around with different types of coffee. We are pretty particular and this coffee maker has not let us down no matter the type. My husband and I will never buy another type! Best ever.

No Longer Happy
We had one of these units for aprox 8 years and used it everyday. I made a mistake of trying to clean it out with CLR and it caused a leak so had to buy a new one. SAME one of course.
This new one is terrible. The chute has to be cleaned out for every use as it get plugged up unlike the first one which was not often.
The WORSE problem is that this one randomly leaks half or more of the coffee onto the counter-top causing a huge mess and NO COFFEE.
After 8 years of using the other one no-one can say we don't know how to use it. This one is clearly a faulty machine or they have changed the design somewhere
I would no longer recommend this product. I have had enough and will be looking into a new one (different brand though I'm sure)

We brought thru Air Miles approx. 5 years ago and have been very please with the way it has been operating all these years every day. Yes it requires cleaning of the chute, but no big deal as far as I was concerned.
Now we purchased a new single serving unit the SS - 700C, because I`m the only one drinking coffee during the week days.

Grind Removal NOT
Functionally great but....
I stopped using the grind feature for approx 6 months. Now that I want to go back to it, I cannot extract the grind unit to wash it. Therefore, I cannot continue to use the grind feature until it can be extracted. Argh!! Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Like morning coffee with fresh ground beans.
Bought this product couple of years ago. Now I guess tear and wear sets in need to replace grinding blade. Noticed the axle is worn out and as it grinds it makes unpleased noise. Were can I get this part.

The grind on/off light is blinking - what does this mean? The coffee maker still grinds successfully and makes a full pot of coffee. I clean the chute and grounds every day, and unplugged the unit to no avail.

Our faithful coffee maker has stopped passing water through on one go. To make a pot we have to manually do about 4 trys to get a full pot. Used to just be automatic. Water filter is newly changed and inserted proper. Any ideas?

We have a Cuisinart grind and brew coffeemaker and have to clean the grinder daily which is time consuming and a real headache. Is there a solution to this problem?
Hi there Bryan,
Unfortunately not. Regular cleaning is the best solution to keeping this product working optimally. This will ensure that any parts do not seize up causing damage to the unit.
Sorry we couldn't reply with better news.

i do not see how the hopper "locks" onto the machine. I can't get the grinder to start. i wish the video would show everything right from set up to go. i am going to have to take this unit back.
After about one year of use, our coffeemaker started leaking water out of the bottom of the unit while making coffee. Â It does not have too much water in the machine. Â Any suggestions as to what it may be?
We got our coffee maker 5 years ago, now the grinder only grinds a short time only a bout 1/3 enough beans. Is there some thing I can do to make it grind longer?. I like the coffee make and can still use it for regular coffee grinds.
