Modern Design For A Single-Serve Brewer
The Cuisinart SS-700 has some great features and functions which means it will be a great addition to your daily life.
The housing is made of plastic, even when it looks like stainless steel. But that's ok, it still gives the brewer a stylish look. The stainless steel drip tray where the mug sits and the handle to open the K-Cup holder are the only real stainless steel parts.
There is a large 80 oz water tank so you won’t have to constantly refill the coffee maker. Having a large tank of water is a great feature for the regular coffee drinker as you will have access to it all day long.
This can sometimes mean that you forget to refill the reservoir. But fortunately, the tank of the Cuisinart SS-700 is illuminated light blue and will flash blue when water needs to be refilled.
There's also “add water” being displayed, ensuring that you don’t run out of water ever. This is a handy feature that means you will be able to keep up your caffeine fix without major delays.
Easy maintenance is a key factor when making the choice of your next Single Serve Coffee Maker.
The Cuisinart cleans just under running water with the use of a mild soap so is really easy to maintain. Please remember not to put the water reservoir or the lid in the dishwasher as they are not safe for dishwasher use.
You can not only brew coffee but also a cup of tea with the Cuisinart SS-700 Single-Cup Coffee Maker. To make sure the taste of your tea is not affected by the last brewed coffee, the Cuisinart Single-Brewer has a convenient rinse button.
This enables you to make tea and coffee in the machine in short succession without having an impact on the flavor. It's also great to just give the Cuisinart SS-700 Single Serve Brewing System a quick clean.
The Cuisinart SS-700 is confirmed to be
If you like to make your coffee to go in a larger travel mug, the shiny metal drip tray is completely removable.
This lets you use large travel mugs up to about 7 inches in size.
With approximately 12” in height, the Cuisinart SS-700 single-cup coffee brewer fits nicely under most kitchen cabinets with standard 18 inches clearance.
Even with the K-Cup holder open, it only increases the height to about 16 inches.
There is a drawback in the size and dimensions of the Cuisinart Single Cup Coffee Maker
As it needs to be pulled forward to remove the water tank, this can make it a tiring task, especially when you consider the weight at almost 16 pounds.
In case, you have to move this single-serve coffee maker often, I would recommend you to get a [easyazon_link identifier=”B003LQZKIC” locale=”US” tag=”coffeebletl-20″ cart=”n”]small appliance sliding tray.[/easyazon_link]
The weight is not just a disadvantage, as opening and closing the K-Cup holder or removing the water tank does not make the machine move easily.
All in all, this is a sturdy machine that looks as though it will stand the test of time.
The manufacturer includes a limited 3-year warranty so they obviously have faith in their single-serve brewer.
