I have not had any issues with this Cuisinart Microwave. The turntable is very reliable, just be sure it is placed correctly on the rollers, or it will not rotate. Is easy to clean, suggest putting a cup of water and heat. This will make it easier to remove any food that has splattered on the sides, or top of the inside. The outside is metal, also easy to keep clean, be sure to locate in area that microwave has room on all sides that are not touching for good ventilation.
This coffee maker has a grinder for coffee beans as well as a timer so I can have freshly brewed coffee from whole beans at any time I like. It can be set for anywhere from 4 to 12 cups. It has an automatic shut off which is great for people like me who leave the house and then wonder "did I shut off the coffee pot?" I would prefer it were a bit hotter and a bit stronger for a full pot. A half pot can be made stronger by simply adding extra beans. It can also be used with ground coffee so for those who don't want to keep beans or have a favorite brand that does not offer beans so it really is very versatile at a moderate price range.

I've had this coffee brewer previously and it lasted about 8 years, which is why I repurchased it. May be a tad more pricey than others, but well worth the extra money. The one thing that I strongly like about this coffee brewer is that the coffee is actually HOT when it finishes brewing and brewing doesn't take very long. I've had other brands prior (Mr. Coffee) and they can't compare. Highly recommend this brand.
This review is for the 12C + single cup maker. I love the fact that if I only want a single cup I can get it or on days when I'll be home I can brew a pot and bring the insulated carafe with me. The other helpful aspect is that in "those" mornings where I really need help getting going, I can drink an entire pot (ready when I get up, of course) and then grab a single "to go" cup as I'm out the door.
It is a good coffee pot overall but there is a design flaw in the carafe. When you pour at a normal angle, coffee spills out on the counter. Unless you pour the coffee out very slowly and gradually, you are making a huge mess. We have to keep napkins underneath to soak up the spilled coffee. Without exaggerating, about a half a cup of coffee is wasted because of it. But everything else is good.
I bought the Cuisinart coffee bean grinder at William Sonoma. It worked great for a year and a half. With no warning, it just stopped. I know quality is crap these days even for good name products, but I would expect at least a few years for junk from China. $32 or so dollars was not worth less than 2 years of use. Don’t be fooled by the name. Just get cheap junk and replace it every year. It is the same as depending on a “good” name in our present economy.
The company (Cuisinart) sent me a refurbished replacement for me, I appreciate that, I am happy with their service. Thanks again. Sam
I purchased my food processor 1-1/2 year ago and now it’s defective, has no power and I the blade has rust all over it, I tried to send emails no reply. I tried to call no luck. I wouldn’t recommend this product to anyone. Thanks.
I Bought Cuisinart 4-Cup Work Bowl, after 6 months the product didn't work, motor and wire burn out. Defective product, bad service, DO NOT BUY CUISINART. SCAM!!!! Cuisinart would not exchange the product, bad services, rude. Poor customer service.
Terrible customer service! Product was damaged unbeknownst to me prior to purchase. Called for parts replacement (2 of the 4 legs were damaged - fork lift possibly??). Instead of "let me help you" I was told "It's very difficult to do since you bought it 6 months ago (late fall) and didn't open it until now". "You can buy the parts.." Um, no! It was bought and kept in the box in the garage. Opened for spring as NJ weather stinks in Fall/Winter. In either case, no more Cuisinart parts in this home! Called for supervisor and was told by the rep that they will review the call... Uh? WTF!
I bought a 14pc knife set a year ago. Three knives have broke at the handle due to rust. This is unacceptable for a product that is supposed to last many years. When contacted the company, they offered to replace one of the knives although this is a faulty product that was known to present issues in multiple reviews. Stay away from their knife sets unless you have money that you do not know how to spend otherwise. Even in that case, there are other ways to throw your money away.
