Cuisinart® SS-10 Premium Single-Serve Coffeemaker Reviews

The Cuisinart SS-10 Premium Single-Serve Brewer gives coffee brewing an improvement from cup sizes, K-Cup compatibility and coffee flavors. This machine was designed with a 72-ounce water reservoir for the convenience of those who take more than one cup a day, meaning fewer refills needed. This home-brewer is also versatile with a programmable feature perfect for any personal or entertaining use at home.

Cuisinart Premium Single-Serve Brewer is made compatible with all brands of K-Cups which can easily suit any household preference for a wide selection of hot drinks and equipped with the Home Barista™ Reusable Filter Cup. This model has a total of five cup size variety from 4, 6, 8, 10 to 12 ounces complete with an adjustable brewing temperature to make sure that the preferred temperature is achieved.

This machine not only makes coffee but the built in hot water button enables the user to make soup, tea, hot chocolate drinks and the like. Additionally, the brewer is equipped with a rinse function for easy clean up. The Cuisinart Premium Single-Serve Brewer is a very user-friendly device.

Since the machine is equipped with an auto shut-off feature, it makes it safer and saves more energy plus it only takes less than a minute to have your perfectly brewed, hot cup of coffee.

Possible Alternatives

If you want a coffee machine good for office use or for when you have guests around, the Cuisinart SS-10 Premium is a good product. But if you are living alone or only a few members of the family drink coffee without the additional features needed, for a lesser cost, you can opt for a single-serve coffee maker for regular coffee. If you prefer a specific brand of single-serve coffee maker, then you can choose that product brand over Cuisinart since it’s not compatible with all K-Cup pods.

It is compatible with a limited number of K-Cup pods. It is not guaranteed to be durable or to last for a long time even with the versatility of use.

Verdict

Overall, the Cuisinart SS-10 Premium Single-Serve Coffeemaker is a great product that is compatible with most types of brewers. It produces a decent cup of hot coffee and other hot beverages as well. The device is also fully programmable—you can easily adjust it to any user preference.

The auto shut-off feature also makes it a safe product to use, plus it’s very convenient for people who drink coffee a lot because of the large-capacity water reservoir allowing for fewer refills and more brewing. A decent and practical product, you can’t go wrong with this one.
