This is a nice coffee maker. It works well and makes delicious coffee from fresh beans every day. Grinder is noisy though.

Makes Good Coffee
4 Star Review   By CAJOM on Home Depot - May 14, 2013   

Coffeemaker makes good coffee, however, all of the features do not work. Specifically the grind feature in that it does not turn off, as we were told it should, after the beans are ground. We have to turn the coffeemaker off and then on again for the coffee to brew.

Not good.
1 Star Review   By Frank on Home Depot - May 14, 2013   

I bought this product roughly two weeks ago. Shipping and packaging was fine. The product itself was very disappointing. The grinder is not large enough to grind the amount of beans needed for strong coffee. Also, the grinder stopped working within a week. I am now in the process of having to return it to the manufacturer. I do not recommend. Spend the extra 25 dollars and save yourself a headache.

Great appliance, black is stylish.
5 Star Review   By Bill on Home Depot - Apr 30, 2013   

After my last cuisinart coffee grind and brew maker was lost to the "Sandy" flood, one of the first replacement items to buy was another Grind and Brew. I like all the features and use it's noise of grinding as a wake-up call that fresh coffee is on it's way. And yes, you do have to clean it after use...takes less than a minute to rinse and leave to air dry the components...or hand dry for pot #2, #3 etc.

It is very noisey when it grinds, but if you set it for your wake time, it doubles as an alarm clock...then when your up and around you have fresh coffee

the best way to make fresh ground coffee
5 Star Review   By Harve on Home Depot - Oct 31, 2012   

coffee maker works great. It's the third one I have purchased. The only problem, it's getting hard to find.

Very good, but not sure about the long term usage
4 Star Review   By samoanload on Home Depot - Oct 2, 2012   

This is a great all around coffee machine. A solid step up from a basic machine, but not too expensive to break the budget. The grinder is nice, but you need to clean it frequently to keep it working well. My grinder gears wore out after a few years, which made the grinder useless. I was able to fix it myself, but it was a bit troublesome. That being said, as a daily usage grinder, it lived up to its life expectancy.

Can't get past major flaws
1 Star Review   By JavaJunkie on Home Depot - Aug 9, 2012   

I love the idea of this coffee maker but it has some major flaws. While is has a 12-cup capacity, the grinder cannot hold 12-cups worth of beans. With this quantity the coffee gets clogged en route to the brew basket and doesn't get brewed. It's difficult to clean, which becomes a dreaded daily chore. It's also very loud. The timer brew feature will rudely wake you due to the noise. You get used to it after a while and can sleep through, but not a fun adjustment period.

Wishing I could get my old coffee maker back
1 Star Review   By ELCobb on Home Depot - Mar 14, 2012   

The steam from the water always backs up into the grinder and makes for a mess. The Coffee comes out weak. We use the manufacturers recommended amount of coffee grinds and we can still see through the pot of coffee.I admit , I like my coffee strong, but my wife does not and it is still too watered down to her liking. Adding any additional grinds to make it stronger and you run the risk of the filter backing up and water over flowing. Making an even bigger mess. we got this as a gift. We gave our old $40 Mr. Coffee to my wife's grandparents, and we both really really regret giving it away. It didn't have the grinder, but for $40 it is totally a better product than this one.

Poorly designed and lacks necessary features
1 Star Review   By Sesh on Home Depot - Feb 28, 2012   

Cannot regulate the amount of coffee that is ground so it has to be loaded every time with the appropriate amount of beans for the amopunt of coffee you want. Steam from the coffee travels up into the grinder and causes coffee to stick to the inside of the grinder.

BEST COFFEE MAKER OUT THERE!
5 Star Review   By cz2001 on Home Depot - Feb 9, 2012   

I OWN THE OLDER MODEL; HOWEVER I BOUGHT THIS MODEL FOR MY MOTHER AS A CHRISTMAS PRESENT BC SHE WAS ALWAYS COMPLIMENTING MINE. THIS ONE IS EVEN NICER THAN MINE BC IT MAKES 12 CUP VS. MY 10 CUP AND ALSO COMES WITH A REUSABLE FILTER (SO ITS NOT NESSESARY TO BUY THEM) AS FAR AS PURCHASING IT FROM HOME DEPOT IT WAS GREAT! NOT ONLY WAS IT AT THE CHEAPEST PRICE I COULD FIND; I WAS NERVOUS ABOUT IT ARRIVING BEFORE CHRISTMAS SO I CALLED THE ONLINE CUSTOMER SERVICE # AND THE ASSURED ME IT WOULD MAKE IT AND IT DID. IN MY OPINION THIS THE BEST COFFEE MAKER ON THE MARKET!!!!!

Nice machine - good coffee
4 Star Review   By bvc12 on Home Depot - Feb 7, 2012   

This machine works well and takes less space than my previous one. I like the grinder feature but it is loud. It's nice that you can operate without it if others are sleeping. It requires more than just adding water and coffee. There are several more pieces to clean, dry, and replace than I had with my old machine. So prep time is a little longer.

A good product for really fresh coffee.The price was right.
4 Star Review   By jack on Home Depot - Feb 7, 2012   

We are enjoying the fresh ground coffee. It is easy to operate but you must clean the grinder each day. Also we never make a large pot because we like a strong coffee, Starbucks Verona but once the grinder is filled with coffee beans you cannot make it stronger so we make a smaller pot usually 7 cups.

Cuisinart grind-and-brew
4 Star Review   By Caffeene on Home Depot - Feb 7, 2012   

The grinder is loud and I find I need more measured coffee per cup - both whole beans or pre-ground - in order to make the same strength as I am used to, but the coffee maker does make a smooth cuppa.

Fantastic! Great cup of coffee!
5 Star Review   By kaeserland on Home Depot - Jan 31, 2012   

We are big fans of the grind and brew and have had 2 of the older models. This one is a vast improvement! The gold tone permanent filter and the charcoal water filter provide the environment to brew excellent coffee. With the previous grind and brew, we had problems with the grinding part not coming off for cleaning, this model has improved the design of that part and our past problems are no more!

Great coffee maker/grinder combo
5 Star Review   By CoffeeRox on Home Depot - Jan 31, 2012   

It took some practice to get the consistency right, but now it is great to make coffee right from beans instead of ground coffee. The coffee tastes fresher. The sale price at Home Depot made the coffee maker a great deal, too.

Noisy and Messy
1 Star Review   By Grinder on Home Depot - Jan 14, 2012   

I have owned two other "Grind and Brew" coffee makers and this one is by far the worst one of the bunch. The design is such that you have to disassemble it to clean it every time you use it. Once the beans are ground they go into the filter but not all of them make it. The left behinds get wet from the hot water and leave a film of wet grounds in the bean compartment. It's a mess and a waste of beans. The compartment that holds the filter is hard to open and the top of the carafe fits poorly. The coffee tastes good but to much work. Get a Krups it's worth the few extra dollars.

Easy and Delish!
4 Star Review   By moonhunt18 on Home Depot - Jan 11, 2012   

we lik everything about this coffee maker! the only thing i would consider changing, though its not a deal beaker, is the lid...you have to take the entire thing off to fill easily, or glean. it is not attached (does not use a thumb lever to open.close).

good value
5 Star Review   By bhop21 on Home Depot - Jan 4, 2012   

The 12 cup grind & brew has it all. Good capacity, excellent features, very stylish. It has a 2-4 hr. adjustable auto shut-off which I use to keep the coffee warm all morning. There is a grinder on/off switch which defaults to ON. This feature should be OFF by default or possibly keep the last setting. If you forget to turn this off and do not have any beans to grind the grinder still runs - sounds like an empty blender. You can shut it off during the brew cycle so there is no issue except the noise. Water filter is another good feature which makes the coffee taste better..

This is a nice set it and forget it coffee maker.
4 Star Review   By Rick on Home Depot - Jan 3, 2012   

Makes great coffee. Grinds coffee beans to a perfect size to get the best flavor from your beans. The only problem is it takes about 12 minutes to brew a pot. For the price, it is a great buy.

Good coffee, noisy machine
4 Star Review   By JLG28 on Home Depot - Jan 3, 2012   

This coffee maker makes good coffee but it is very loud when grinding the beans. The noise only lasts a few seconds. I am worried it will break (based on other reviews) but so far, so good. Also home depot had the best price on this coffee pot by far!

5 Star Review   By SantasHelper1 on Home Depot - Dec 27, 2011   

My husband is a 'coffee' snob' and this was a Christmas gift and he loved it! I loved it being on sale plus free (quick) shipping! The machine works perfect and does what it says it will do. The kids got him 3 different kinds of whole bean coffee and we've all enjoyed him brewing us up some fresh coffee. Next year I think we are going to start roasting our own beans....

Grind and Brew coffee pot...
5 Star Review   By Dennis on Home Depot - Dec 27, 2011   

This is just what I wanted from a coffee pot..The only draw back is that if you want to brew pre-ground coffee, you have to leave the grinding mill in the machinne which means you have to take it out and wipe it out or else the next batch of coffee beans that you grind will stick..But I didn't buy it for pre-ground coffee...Wonderful aroma permeating from the machine into the house

Excellent! I'm going to buy one for my parents for Christmas!
5 Star Review   By Jamie on Home Depot - Aug 31, 2011   

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this coffee pot! It makes an amazingly fresh cup of coffee each time you use it. The built in grinder is by far the best feature. It takes up less room and is quieter than my stand alone grinder. Also, it grinds the beans to the perfect consistency for a perfect cup of coffee. It has a metal filter, so you never have to mess with paper filters. I have been and will continue to recommend this coffee pot to my friends and family!

Worth the long brew time
4 Star Review   By EAS319 on Home Depot - May 30, 2011   

This is the second Grind & Brew I have owned. I had the original, and when that died I replaced it with this. I love the convenience of having the grinder and coffee maker in one, so that I can set it at night for the morning. The parts are a little bit of a pain to clean, but I'll take that for the fresh grind capabilities. The brew cycle takes around 10 minutes though, and I mean after the grinding is done. So that is a little long. All in all, I love this machine.
