The coffer maker does get the coffee hot but it is somewhat of a hassle dealing with the filter basket. I think it is over priced for what it is. I also wish it was at least 10 cups. The coffee stays hot in the carafe for around an hour so plenty of time to enjoy.

Easy to grip and speed settings worked as advertised. The cord easily wraps up and stores inside the plastic container but sometimes the cord was a little awkward when trying to set the mixer down. The cord swivels at its base, so the cord goes to the right or left, not really a problem once I got used to it. Cuisinart has great customer service and the longest warranty (3yr). Great device----recommend highly.
