This product seems produce a weaker medium grind than its Thermal Grind & Brew unit which was more controllable but certainly messier to clean.
Both medium and dark grinds appear to use more beans and if you use the #4 paper filter in the basket, it overflows with the coffee grounds and makes a mess anyway.
The opening to the water reservoir is far too narrow. You can't pour 12 cups of water from the pot into the reservoir without spilling some of it onto the countertop. This is a problem that cuisinart should look into for future production of this model.
