I am very happy with this Cuisinart DGB-900BC coffeemaker. It seems that people in Cuisinart have really thought this product through. It has all the essentials a coffee lover needs-the storage of the coffee beans, making sure no moisture comes in to preserve its freshness, the lovely grinder that you can set accordingly, and finally, the brewer which takes all the richness and aroma of the fresh coffee beans. It is a piece of kitchen appliance everyone should have.
To begin with, I used to store my coffee beans in different containers that promise to lock in freshness. I also have a separate grinder for my beans, which I eventually gave up. I would go to the store where I pick up my coffee beans and request that they grind the coffee according to the requirements of my drip. I guess there was really no trouble in this, except that when I want it ground finer, I cannot do it anymore when I am already at home. I am basically stuck with whatever the store gives me. The Cuisinart DGB-900BC Grind and Brew Automatic Coffeemaker have solved these two problems. I really did not think I could find a product this smart and this useful. Thankfully, I did.
I have also noticed that with this coffeemaker, my coffee really comes out hot and flavorful. It even keeps coffee warm with its double insulated double carafe. It was a common problem with other coffeemakers that the coffee, once in the carafe or pot, would get cold after just a few minutes. However, for the Cuisinart DGB-900BC, you can expect that your coffee would have the same temperature as when it has just come out from the drip.
I also have to say that in terms of design, Cuisinart is really the best in the market today. I was so pleased to find that Cuisinart is made really well and it does not look cheap at all.
As for the cleanup, I find no problem or trouble at all. Usually, I encounter drips and spills all over but with this coffeemaker, cleaning is a breeze. I even find cleaning the grinder easy and could be done in two minutes. None of the coffee beans get stuck and if there are big particles, I can easily take it out.
Cuisinart has indeed outdone itself with this new revolutionary model of grind and brew. To this day I have not found one coffeemaker that can stand against this model. Even its big 12-cup capacity is such a big plus. We usually have people over for coffee and they usually get impressed with the Cuisinart coffeemaker once they see it. When they taste the coffee they get convinced to get one for their own homes. I have even been thinking of getting another one for my office because this is really a good investment. If there is truly one coffeemaker you would get, it really has to be the Cuisinart DGB-900BC. It comes with a three-year warranty, so you are sure that your coffeemaker will be taken care of for a long time.
