Positive Product Points

Brews an excellent cup of coffee.  Built like a tank; stands up to punishment and irregular care. Alerts you when it needs cleaning. Self-cleaning mode.  Makes a really cool jet-aircraft noise when activated.

Negative Product Points

Its a bitch to keep clean. The cool jet-aircraft noise it makes will wake everyone up if youre an early riser.

Detailed Commentary

This is hands down the best coffee maker Ive ever owned, and Ive owned lots, from generic Mr.Coffee knockoffs to some of Krups finest.  

The construction is solid and well conceived. Hats off to the Cuisinart engineers who designed & built this tribute to Rube Goldberg. Put beans and water in one end, and get hot delicious coffee out the other. It just plain works, and works well.

While the grind-n-brew is complicated to disassemble and clean, its impossible to reassemble it wrong.  Itll even beep at you if you try to turn it on without all the pieces in place.

Unfortunately, because it *is* such a pain to clean, Ive gotten lazy and have sometimes neglected to tend it properly after each cycle... but dispite this abuse, the Grind-n-Brew continues to crank out wonderful joe after 13+ months of daily, multiple-pots-per-day use.  The original gold filter is still pristine, and while Ive kept my eye on it for signs of wear, Ive not been moved to replace it yet.

If you REALLY let things go, itll eventually flash a "Clean Me Now" LED at you, which means its time to run some standard coffee-pot cleaning solution thru it.  It even has a "self clean" mode to make this process relatively painless.

HIGHLY recommended, assuming youve had experience assembling Lego toys.  If you think a regular Mr.Coffee is complicated, run away now.
