Great machine.
Love this machine. Finally 2 in 1. So convenient. I was worried bc i found a review saying that it didn't get as hot as they wanted. Well my unit gets super hot. It is easy to use. Got it all set up quickly. Cuisanart also gives u 3 sample kcups in the box and they are recyclable u just have to remove the center part first and put that in trash and recycle the outer part of the kcup. I am glad I purchased this.

Best Ever Coffee Maker
I have used Single Cup Keurig Coffee Makers for several years and have not had much luck as I have returned two for malfunctions. I finally found the Cuisinart 12 cup/Single Serve Coffeemaker and I have never been so happy in my life. I'm the only one in my home that drinks coffee but not everyday so I wanted the single serve. However the 12 cup part sure came in handy for the holidays with company wanting coffee. It has separate water compartments and buttons for each and very easy to use. The coffee comes out much warmer than my old Keurig one and not noisy. The Keurig always sounded like a space ship liftoff. Super Luv My Cuisinart.

Happy hot coffee anytime!
Love my new coffee center. Coffee is hot as should be. Carafe side great for a.m. And can whip up a cuppa on the single side if I feel like it in the evening or anytime with K cups.

Only bad thing is the area for pouring in the water, just need to be very careful, especially in the morning, as space is in rear and rather small, to avoid flood on the counter.

Cuisinart could improve upon this item
The only thing I would like better is that the 12-cup were on the right side and the single serve were on the left. For right-handed people it's a little difficult to try to fill the reservoir from the left side. The single serve doesn't really make much difference as to which side it is on, but the 12-cup would be so much easier on the right. I know this is actually a Cuisinart issue. I love Sur la Table!! I will contact Cuisinart as well!

Do not buy it!!
Have had it for about 7-8 months and the other day the K-cup side just stopped working. It spits out a little water and keeps making a grinding sound. Very disappointed

K-cup side disappointing; pot side great
I received this as a gift two months ago. I've already had it replaced by Cuisinart because of the single serve side. The water pressure is so low the stream of coffee sometimes misses the cup, splashing the counter. The only time you get a solid stream is when it finishes. Nothing like a Keurig, not even close. The pot side is great, but only 1/2 the machine functions as it should. It's going back and I'm getting a Keurig again.
I'd recommend only if you use the pot side.

Great 12 cup coffee maker but faulty K-Cup.
The 12-cup coffee maker works great it makes tasty coffee. The single K-Cup however is very temperamental. It's hard to get the K-Cup process started and a lot of the times it will just stop brewing in the middle of the cycle giving you a very small cup of coffee. I have discovered that if you slam the lid closed hard you have a higher percentage of getting the k-cup to produce a full cup of coffee. I guess I expected more.

Undecided
I have used this new machine for a couple of weeks but am undecided....when put the coffee on warm after brewing it does not keep it HOT....Pouring water into the back reservoir is a bit awkward...doable, but awkward in that you need to pour on left back corner if right handed as single cup appliance is on right side of machine....making it more difficult to pour without spilling....used the single cup the other night for company and they were pleased....used Starbuck's coffee....Fits neatly on counter and is a nicely designed look....

Can you run both sides at same time?
Anne B on Nov 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: You can only use one side at a time, but it does not take long to brew the pot or to make an individual cup. If you plan, you can stagger the brew cycles with little, if any, delay.
Can you use a thermal carafe in place of the carafe that comes with the machine?
A shopper on Nov 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately there is not a compatible thermal carafe that will work with this machine, nor is there one recommended by Cuisinart.
are there two water tanks?
A shopper on Nov 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, there are two water tanks. On the side for the coffee pot, the top of the machine opens. This area contains a place for the ground coffee as well as a place to put water before brewing coffee. On the single serving side, there is a clear cylinder where water is held. You can easily see how much water is left for brewing single serving cups. It's a very well-designed machine. My family has enjoyed using it.
how often does the coffee shoot have to be cleaned?
A shopper on Sep 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This will vary depending on the coffee beans being used. Dark, oily, or flavored beans will require cleaning more frequently, while light to medium will require very little.
Is carafe side programmable?
Anne B on Nov 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes...it has a 24 hour brew start feature, adjustable auto off feature as well as a ready alert feature.
Is there a filter for the single cup so you don't have to use the pre-packaged K cups? Or can you recycle them so it is not environmentally wasteful?
A shopper on Nov 8, 2016
BEST ANSWER: My mistake. Yes it does come with filter for single serving side. Mine was lost in box, found it, great feature! Love this machine more & more.
Is it possible to turn off the Ready Tone?
A shopper on Dec 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I don't see anywhere in the manual instructions to turn it off. Probably best thing to do is to call Cuisinart and find out. Hopefully, they can tell you.
Does this coffeemaker have an automatic shut off?
Carrie L on Nov 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes. You can determine how long you want the unit to stay on until it automatically turns off.
Does it grind beans on big side?
Marsha A on Feb 17, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No. I knew that before. But I love the options that the coffee maker gives. I am not tied to the K-CUPS if I don't want to use them. Also my husband and I use different types of coffee so it makes that really easy.
Do you have to turn on to make 12 cup side?
A shopper on Dec 12, 2017
BEST ANSWER: You make either a single cup or the 12 cup. We just have used the single cup maker, we’re trying to cut back. This is an awesome machine for the price.
Is this coffee maker BPA free?
A shopper on Nov 8, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes...
does the coffee i the carafe stay hot?
Ethel W on Jan 2, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the coffee in the glass carafe stays hot. There are three settings for the warmer, L, M, H. I like mine on high. There is a time setting for the amount of time you want the warmer to stay on. I'm very satisfied with this unit.
Does the k-cup side fill from the same water container as the coffee maker?
Colleen C on Nov 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No, there are two separate water reservoirs. The single serve reservoir actually holds several cups before it must be refilled.
My single serve overflows the pod about every 3 cups....such a waste of money. I have to clean it out after almost every cup. Am I doing something wrong??
A shopper on Jul 19, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I experienced a simmilar sisuation with both of the series SS- 15 units we urchased. Finally, in frustration, I figured out how to solve the problem. After inserting the " K- Cup" into it's holder, and before closing the snap cover, I pressed down on the top of the " K-Cup" to pierce the bottom of the cup by hand rather than relieging on the closing of the snap door to do it. Every single cup has been perfect since employing this technique. I haven't had any coffee grounds escape the unit since using this very simple procedure. Good Luck. I hope this solves your problem as it has mine.
Can I also brew tea ??
A shopper on Dec 9, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes you have to put loose tea in the little container that comes for ground coffee. It will also just brew hot water for a single cup of tea.
I love this machine.
Does the single cup side have multiple ounce sizes?
Stacey on Dec 9, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This item has two water reservoirs. 1 for the coffee pot = up to 12 cup brew, PLUS a removable 40 ounce container behind the k-cup center.
Does the machine grind beans?
A shopper on Sep 1, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No it does not grind beans. But we love it !
Can any k-cups be used in the single serving side or do you have to buy certain ones? Also, is there space on the single serve side for a taller cup or thermos?
Catherine W on Feb 17, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I have been able to use any K cup on the single side, especially like the hot chocolate at night. I would say that a tall cup fits nicely, not to sure about a thermos however as I have never tried to use one.
Our coffee maker is leaking clean water onto our countertop. It appears to be coming from the single cup side which we use more frequently. We have made sure it is secured snugly. Any other tips?
D.C. Cali on Mar 25, 2017
BEST ANSWER: i have never had this problem, but it sounds as if something is preventing the tank to seal with the unit - either an obstruction of some sort or damage tip the sealing mechanism.
What size cups can you use?
A shopper on Dec 9, 2017
BEST ANSWER: the single cup brewer has three levels of water flow - 6, 8 and 10 oz so you can use any size cup, just make sure you choose a big enough one. I've added the milk to the cup first and not left enough room for the coffee flow. As you can see by the picture you can use a tall mug too.
Is there an optional thermal pot available?
A shopper on Apr 17, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I believe that you can order a separate 12-cup Cuisinart stainless steel carafe online from several different sources. I love my coffee maker but I have not gotten a replacement stainless steel carafe yet as the coffee stays nice and hot in the gall one that came with the machine.
I had the previous model that had the hot water reservoir but no single-cup coffee pod. The hot water reservoir was for tea or hot water on demand. I'm curious if it can still function in that manner or if once used for single-serve coffee it will only need to be reserved for that?
Asheya W on Dec 4, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hello Asheya.
Yes the reservoir can be used for just dispensing hot water. You would just not put in a pod. You would just select one of the three sizes of the cup settings you want and it will dispense the hot water into your cup. Hope this helps :-)
Robert
I understand you can’t run both sides at once, but after brewing a pot, with the pot still on, can you use the single cup side?
A shopper on Dec 9, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, you can. It really is a very nice coffee maker.
Can you brew less than 12 cups or must you make a whole pot?
A shopper on Dec 14, 2016
BEST ANSWER: You make however many (Up to 12) that you like by how much water you add, just like any other maker, this unit has an additional maker one the side if you want to make just one cup.
What do I do when the red clean light comes on? I’ve cleaned it 3 times with vinegar, used a small paper clip in order to clean the small metal spout, and I’ve unplugged it for a while to see if it would re-set. Any ideas?
Benji on Oct 27, 2018
BEST ANSWER: one cleaning should have been enough. You certainly tried you best. If it's under warranty - send it back. It has a problem !
How can you shut the pot off without using the automatic shut off?
A shopper on Jul 7, 2018
BEST ANSWER: On the rightt side their Is on and off switch that operates both coffee makers.
Where do you pour the water for the 12 cup? I have been pouring on the right side opening and water is leaking someone under the unit. I took one unit back already and the second is starting to do the same thing. Should i be putting the water on the left side opening? Has anyone else had this problem??
A shopper on Mar 6, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I have poured the water in the opening to the right of the area for the coffee grinds above the carafe. I didn't put the whole 12 cups of water, but it didn't leak out. Perhaps you are over filling it.
How do i prevent kcup splatters? It splatters when using the kcup and its brand new.
Marie E on Jan 25, 2018
BEST ANSWER: We use a sharp knife and poke a small hole in top of kcup pod before inserting into the kcup holder, and also then press down on the kcup so that bottom is pierced also before closing the kcup side lid. Have not had any issues since we began to do this,
Where do I put water for the 12 cup side?
A shopper on Dec 29, 2017
BEST ANSWER: As for any 10- to 12-cup coffee maker, the water is poured into the reservoir right next to where you place the coffee grounds to be used in brewing your pot of coffee.
How to turn off coffee maker?
A shopper on Nov 26, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Switch on lower Ry. Side of unit. Follow instructions in manual. I had to read it thoroughly, as different from last cuisinart model I owned.
