Detailed Commentary

I bought the Brew Central after a lot or research and reading a number of reviews.  I have been very pleased with it.  The coffee definitely passes the taste test and is also very hot.  I admit confusion about the temperature.  Others who have measured the temperature, have measured it around 195, right in the ideal range.  I called Cuisinart and they said it brews at 185.  I tried to measure it before it goes into the basket, but have only been able to measure it between 175-185.  So who knows?  But it definitely very hot and the taste does not seem to suffer from whatever the temperature is.  I also love the 1-4 cup feature, which double heats the water to ensure it does not brew at too cold a temperature even with small amounts.  I like the looks, but I realize that is just a matter of taste and others might not like it.  Some have complained about the small opening for pouring the water in, but I have not found it to be a problem at all.  I don't exactly have the best hand eye coordination in the world, but I have never had a problem with it.

Buying Experience

Bought from Bed, Bath and Beyond with a 20% off coupon.  Interestingly, I didn't have a coupon, so I asked the young lady at the register if she could give me one when I was ready to check out.  She did, and I got the discount.  Can't beat that.  Amazon.com frequently has reconditioned units for app. $50.
