Seal Failures (LEAKING!) on 4 Different Cuisinart Coffee Makers
By MB Mich
So now I am asking myself why I keep going back to Cuisinart for coffee makers?
ALL I can say is, I guess they're in the right price point, because the next step up is into the hundreds of dollars... but all of my Cuisinart coffee makers have died from the same or similar problems of seal failures.
I got my first Cuisinart coffee maker (identical but brushed aluminum look)... it had a seal fail probably a year then leaked water out of the bottom.
I immediately went and got a shiny silver like this. I liked the look and the coffee it made so I figured it was a fluke and got a new one...
About a year later, it a seal failure happened so that it no longer would bring water up from the water reservoir to where the coffee grounds were.
Next one was an upgrade... slightly bigger and nicer... It lasted about 4 years then did the same thing... stopped transporting water so no coffee would brew. But I figured hey... looks cool... good coffee... lasted a lot longer than the last couple... let's roll with it.
But this last one I JUST got a month and a half ago... one of the seals failed and the clock/programming display filled up with water and steam and it is now unusable.
Too many seal failures!

Basically this is great and I really like the retro touches
By Warren Harris
Basically this is great and I really like the retro touches. The color is very nice and fits in our decor. However... You really have to make sure the top is seated tightly. We had it overflow coffee all over the counter necessitating a massive cleanup. It would seem when the lid is closed that the filter cone would also be thoroughly seated.
Not necessarily it seems.
Otherwise it makes great coffee.

Old Toggle switches should be Gone by Now.
The first one I received did not work. It had a faulty on/off switch. I returned it and got a replacement. It worked fine for exactly two years to the day. Now this does not go on and I assume it is a faulty switch again. I like the Cuisinart coffee maker and will replace this with the 3200 model which has a button and not an old fashioned toggle switch to turn it on.
