Purchased in May 2020, in August 2020 got an error code “eeo” in the display window. Contacted Cuisinart directly. On FaceTime was directed to cut cord and another machine would be sent. Received the new machine, but in October 2020 got the same error code again. Really don’t want to spend this much time dealing with a malfunctioning unit when all I want is two cups of coffee/day. Threw it out and bought a Keurig Elite.

I purchased this updated model because the plastic on my SS-700 was fading and I thought this would look nicer and have some brewing improvements. NOOoooooooo.
This new design is terrible. It splashes coffee all over the place. Here are some photos of how it splashes to coffee onto the back of the unit and onto the kitchen counter after JUST ONE USE. I could not imagine the mess after a week’s worth of brewing. This means constant cleaning. In addition, the used K-Cup was dripping from the needle hole when I took it out to throw it away. The previous model SS-700 used K-Cups did not drip, probably because it makes a smaller needle hole.
The 10 oz brew tastes a bit watery from the SS-10.
The lid mechanism on this new design feels a bit awkward since you first lift up on a spring loaded lever, which then pulls up the lid. The K-Cup remains upright on this model. The previous model SS-700 has a nice solid feeling loading mechanism that moves the holder so the K-Cup is at an angle facing you. I like the older mechanism much better than this cheap feeling one.
I like the blue LED on the previous model SS-700 that highlights the water remaining. For some reason they removed the light on this updated model.
Even the charcoal filter holder has a worse design on this new model. The plastic cage holds the filter somewhat near the water intake, whereas the previous model SS-700 the filter placement is more precise relative to the water intake.
This one also has a slightly smaller water reservoir, and an overall cheaper feel. There are no improvements to the LCD display or programming options.
I guess that this new model SS-10 is the result of financial engineering by Cuisinart managers looking to shave costs anywhere they can. This is a missed opportunity that will hurt Cuisinart.
I’m returning this junk and hooking up my wonderful classic SS-700.

As a loyal Keurig consumer, it was stepping far outside the box for me to purchase this coffeemaker but I am so glad that I did. I’ve been using Keurigs from the year they came out, and after the third machine quit on me – this one less than two years old – I decided to stop throwing good money after bad. Truthfully the quality of their machines has declined to the point of unacceptability. In searching for alternatives, I settled on this one, and what a wonderful cup of coffee I keep getting out of it! I did not think I would like the auto shutoff feature, because it takes an age to warm up the Keurigs, but this one brews a FAST delicious cup of coffee, from off to hot coffee in under a minute. It is a marked improvement over my previous coffeemaker both in taste and speed of brewing. If like me you’re struggling over an alternative to the bi-yearly Keurig purchase, give this one a try. You’re welcome.

Can’t really leave a good review. Received a machine that was clearly used and returned…Pretty disgusting considering there’s a virus going around.Not sure what’s wrong with it to have been returned, but obviously was.Pretty unimpressed as we waited WEEKS for this to even ship, then to receive this.I realize things are taking longer, but this is just pathetic and gross.

This is our second one in 4 years. The pump quit in our first one. This one is slightly redesigned. Smaller. The blue light in the tank is gone. Cheaper build too. All plastic. The original one we owned had a much better pump, until of course, it quit. The replacement pump is: noisier, and vibrates much more. Much more messier. Coffee all over the place. This just doesn’t feel like it’ll last the year. Not impressed. Aside from the pump quitting, we loved our first one. Too bad about this one. Cheap, cheap, cheap.

Newest version is very noisy, splashes water all over, not great when all you want is a quiet cup of coffee in the morning. I used my original Cuisinart until it wore out. Only had this one 5 months. Very disappointed.

I went searching for a replacement for a Keurig and I happened along this one and a Hamilton Beach that had rave reviews. Since the HB was $79, I decided to give it a try. I should have known better. Fake reviews, paid reviews, et. I ALWAYS wind up going with the higher quality Cuisinart, and this was no exception. The HB took a whopping THREE MINUTES for the first drop to even hit the cup! That was a deal breaker for me. My full size Cuisinart coffeemaker I’ve had since 2000 was quicker than that! This beauty….took only EIGHT SECONDS! And it is not only fast (complete cuppa joe from ice cold, refridgerated water in less than 58 SECONDS!) but it’s also functional, and gorgeous to look at.
It comes with (no separate purchase, and wondering if it will fit/work) a removable filter and holder that replaces the K-cup holder in the front. It stores neatly hidden inside the right hand side of the machine (you push an indent and it pops open on the side, and stays out of sight the rest of the time…but more importantly, you can’t misplace it!) Since you can add your own coffee to it, you can continue to use your favorite bagged coffees, as well as add two scoops of ground coffee to make a 12 oz cuppa joe (or basically, 2 cups at the same time). Perfect for when I’m getting ready to go to work and need that extra cup.
It also has the great feature of a hot water button that’s just as quick and allows you to make a cup of tea or cocoa, which I prefer doing as compared to buying the tea K-cups, which don’t brew long enough. Simply add the tea bag to the cup, lift the head up and down (make sure there’s no empty k-cup or grounds in there) and push the button, and the tea will be steeped by the time you’ve got a cup full of hot water.Done in a flash, and done with class.
Cuisinart has never let me down. Quality you can see and feel. I’m really pleased with this purchase. This is hands-down better than the Keurig, as well as any other brand machine I’ve tried.

Initial impressions: Smaller, lighter with seemingly less water capacity than the SS700 it replaced. Gone are the blue LED lights in the water resivuoir, too bad as it was a nice indicator the unit was ‘on’ and the blue cast a subtle light at night that was pleasing to the eye. Water temp. is selectable by HOT & XHOT instead of by degrees ex. 192*. But XHOT is much HOTTER than the 192* setting on the SS700 and that is a plus.Head functionality is only a possible improvement. On the SS700 both the upper and lower ‘jaws’ of the head moved which created a problem later in the units life, via misalignment, either crushing through the top of the K-cup or creating an elongated hole. This is simplified in this unit, only the top moves, and I hope it eliminates the crushing. However, the 1st K-cup through the machine had it’s top seal blown off and coffee grounds went everywhere. A second K-cup experienced no problems. The Problem may have been the 1st K-cup itself or the fact the the cradle for the K-cup allows for the K-cup to wobble. Time will tell. If the exploding seals continue the unit will be returned to Amazon. 3 stars for now.
9/8/2017 update: Machine has performed flawlessly since the initial review. Faster brew than the SS700 as well. 5 stars

Bought this machine in January of 2021. After two months, caught fire internally and started to smoke. Tried to open it up to make sure the fire was out, and the screws were rusted. This appears to be a used machine. Completely unacceptable. When we called Amazon, they put us through to the American version of Cusinart, Jasmine, who wasted our time taking all our information down only to tell us that we had to contact Cusinart Canada (who we have been unable to contact). Don’t buy Cusinart products. They might set your house on fire, and if it doesn’t, you won’t be able to reach anyone who can help you anyhow. Including Amazon.
