THAT WAS HOW I FELT ON THESE PREVIOUS MODELS......I FINALLY REALIZED THAT FOR ME, PERSONALLY, I SIMPLY JUST DIDNT LIKE THE LOOK OF THE KEURIG BREWER......I LOVE LOVE LOVE THE CLEAN, CRISP LINES OF THIS BREWER.....I LOVE THAT IT HAS A LOT OF STAINLESS ON IT AND THE LARGER RESERVOIR -- I LIKE THAT THE SCREEN IS FLAT, NOT ANGLED, AND I ALSO LIKE THE BUTTON PAD.....GOING FROM CUP SIZE TO CUP SIZE IS A SNAP -- YOU SIMPLY SCROLL THRU TO THE SIZE YOU WANT AND IT DEFAULTS BACK TO THE SIZE YOU HAVE PRESET - NO MORE HAVING TO LOOK THRU A MENU THEN SELECT......ALSO THERE IS A HIDDEN DOOR ON THE UPPER RIGHT SIDE THAT YOU PRESS AND YOUR MY KCUP IS HOUSED THERE -- SO YOU ALWAYS KNOW WHERE IT IS AT......I HAD TO GO THRU SEVERAL TO GET ONE THAT TOTALLY SATISFIED ME AND ALSO MAKES A TERRIFIC CUP OF COFFEE...IT IS INCREDIBLY QUIET, MAKES A HOT CUP OF BEVERAGE AND I FIND IT CLASSY LOOKING! 'NUFF SAID! HIGHLY RECOMMEND - HAVE HAD FOR SEVERAL MONTHS NOW AND NOT A SINGLE COMPLAINT! IM VERY VERY HAPPY THAT I AM AT THE END OF MY SEARCH AND MY EFFORTS PAID OFF! LOVE CUISINART PRODUCTS!
Quick, easy but pricey
I bought this about 2 years ago and so far it's been okay. I love the feature of not having to use K cups if you have a speciality coffee you like.
I've had several problems with it not working, it sounds likes it running but then nothing comes out. I love the look, easy to clean just unsure if its worth it to spend the extra money.
Going on 2 years and I think were do for an upgrade. Sadly I feel like it should last longer.
The Cuisinart SS-700 does appear to be better made than the Keurig and it is very nice looking on the counter. I love the size of the water reservoir and there are lots of nice features. However, my husband and I have bought 2 in the last year (not from QVC). We initially just thought the first was a dud, but neither brewed more than 1 or 2 cups of coffee each. I believe it may be a problem with the pump...it sounds like it's going to work, but nothing happens. Cuisinart did not want to help on the first so we didn't even bother on the second. Prior to the 2 Cuisinarts we owned 2 Keurig Platinum B-70s (6 and 4 years ago). The same thing happened, but it took approximately 2 years for each before they quit brewing. I have tried descaling and resetting each of them, but nothing has worked. It is difficult to understand why each machine eventually had the same problem. After doing a little research I found that this is, unfortunately a common problem with both brands. As much as my husband and I love K-cups, I cannot see putting anymore money into another one. I believe it's time to go back to our Black and Decker Spacesaver coffee maker (13 years old) and Tassimo (7 years old). There is nothing special about the Black and Decker and the Tassimo is very squatty-looking in comparison with the Cuisinart and Keurig, but they have not failed us.
Superb Quality/Ease of Use
I'd considered several other Single Serve Coffee Makers, before I discovered this Single Serve from Cuisinart at QVC and I couldn't be happier! I own an older 12 cup coffee maker from Cuisinart that makes wonderful coffee, but like many other people, I found I tended to waste some of the coffee. So, I began my search for a quality Single Serve Coffee Maker that would brew great coffee, be easy to set up and to use. When I found this Single Serve from Cuisinart, I knew it would be the one I'd been looking for, after reading it's description, features and I really liked the appearance of the machine. When the machine arrived, I could hardly wait to set it up and brew my first cup! The set up instructions were extremely easy to follow and my from my first cup, I've been hooked on the fine quality taste I've had every time, from this Cuisinart Single Serve Maker. My family and I have truly enjoyed the 12 variety K-Cups received with the machine and we love the simplicity of choosing our size of cup. I intend to recommend this Cuisinart Single Serve Coffee Maker to my other family members and our friends and I would never hesitate to recommend anyone looking for a great Single Serve Coffee Maker that makes Superb Coffee!

best Coffee Single Servemachine going
I bought a SS700 from QVC in April 2011 and loved it. I bought it because it had the best Warranty 3 yrs. and because I had seen it in action at a Navy Base demo. I love love love it. Sadly I recently noticed it sounded louder and labored and had slowed down a lot. Now usually I would have just bought another but I remembered that warranty so I called them.I told the girl at Cuisinart what it was doing and she was very apologetic over and over..Huh! wow ! and that they would ship me a new machine that I should get in 3-7 days and when I got it I could pack the old one and send it back. Cost $10 shipping. Where do you get that kind of service. Usually they tell you something isn't covered. So I am a Cuisinart FAN forever thanks to their Customer Service.
And I am so happy I took my QVC plunge in April 2011 buying my machine from them.
Absolutely Love It!!
I am hooked for life! This is my second Cuisinart and I wouldn't have it any other way. My first lasted for several years, I then gifted it to a friend and purchased a new one. I could have explored other brands and models but because I so loved my first Cuisinart SS-700 without hesitation I purchased a second! It's easy to use and makes the perfect cup of coffee each and every time!
I ordered the Cuisinart after my Keurig quit working. I love the larger water container.
I use this many times every day and it has continued to work with no problems.
No problems or complaints with this coffee maker
I got one for home and another for the office. They both broke within one year.
Lasted 9 Months
I purchased this Cuisinart Single Serve coffee maker for my husband Christmas 2011. I had researched the product and found that Cuisinart had a three year warranty versus Keurig's one year warranty. It seemed that some people were having issues with their coffee makers so I thought I better go with the brand that had the better warranty or so I thought. After 9 months of occasional use, our unit died. It started off just shorting the cups of water from 8 ounces to about 6. It then just wouldn't come on. I contacted the company and to get a replacement they want you to pay $10 for them to ship you a "new" one and then you have to pay $40 to send the defective unit back. I was more than upset over this so I asked to speak to the supervisor. She referred me to the back of the manual where it talks about their three year "limited" warranty. It does mention there being a cost of $10 to send the "repaired" or replacement unit back. It seems to me they are just getting these defective units back refurbishing them and sending them back as warranty replacements. I was not happy. I paid almost $200 for a unit that I thought would last. I never dreamed after 9 months it would quit completely. The supervisor told me that the company could not afford to pay the shipping on all the defective units. That tells me something right there. I also think if they are charging $200 for something that is worth $5 they are more than money ahead. I would pass on this and be very leery of any purchase from this company. They don't have a solid product or they would be standing behind a real warranty and not a "limited" one. I am very disappointed.
Gotta go along with so many others--I've had 3 Keurigs and they all stopped working. I've had this one for quite some time and it works like a charm. I couldn't be happier. Thanks Cuisinart!
