"The SS-15 coffee machine from Cuisinart brings an aura of elegance to your kitchen."
The SS-15 coffee machine from Cuisinart brings an aura of elegance to your kitchen. It’s made by one of the leading cooking appliance manufacturers and oozes style and quality. Priced between $150 and $200, this coffee machine is an affordable option given its purpose and high-quality features. This coffee machine weighs 12.2lbs, so it’s light enough to be moved wherever you want it. The Cuisinart SS-15 is one of the larger coffee machines available, with dimensions of 10.38 x 14.25 x 10.13 inches. Provided you have enough countertop space to accommodate it, this coffee machine will be a fabulous addition and solve all your coffee needs.
One of the significant aspects of the Cuisinart SS-15 is its design. This is a smart looking microwave, made from stainless steel in a silver and black finish. It’s an attractive design and suitable for all styles of home. The SS-15 shows off its technical side with a professional display screen and digital controls. This coffee machine is nice looking but doesn’t dominate the room it’s in. Cuisinart has designed this coffee machine to be quite large, most probably because it functions for 12 cups of coffee as well as single-serve use, but this does mean it uses up a lot of countertop space. The overall appearance of the Cuisinart SS-15 is sleek, stylish, sophisticated and looks the part.
The Cuisinart SS-15 is a very versatile coffee machine, adapting to what the user requires. The left-hand side of the coffee machine as you look at it lets you make larger quantities of coffee using the glass carafe, and the right-hand side as you look at it give you the option of single-serve coffee. Both machines offer a fantastic coffee taste which is the feedback provided by many customers who have used this coffee machine. The SS-15 also comes with a gold tone filter to extract more flavor from the coffee, but this is just an optional filter as you can use standard filters as well to make that perfect cup of filter coffee. The Cuisinart SS-15 is compatible with either ground coffee or K-cups, so it’s up to you if you prefer one to the other, or you like to alternate. Another factor you can alternate is the brew strength of the coffee, as the SS-15 comes with a nifty “Bold” button, so you can strengthen the coffee as you wish.
The single serve side of the Cuisinart SS-15 coffee machine gives you the option of either a 6, 8 or 10 oz. sized brew and the larger side with the carafe can make up to 12 coffee cup servings in one go. This makes it ideal if you have many guests to serve coffee to or equally if you fancy a single cup of coffee for yourself. Additionally, the glass carafe that can serve up to 12 coffees also benefits from a warming plate, so it can be heated up while the SS-15 machine is brewing your coffee. This is especially useful when you like your coffee made with warm milk for example, as it can heat in the carafe ready to go. The temperature of the coffee brewed in the Cuisinart SS-15 is reported as being hot and ready, so it’s a bonus that you can heat the carafe to a temperature that suits you.
There is also the option to set a time for the Cuisinart SS-15 to make your coffee using the auto on/off feature, so you can easily have your coffee freshly prepared for you at a set time, or equally, you can set the coffee machine to turn off at a particular time using the auto-off feature. This is a handy feature to have, and customers have noted how helpful this is as the SS-15 also makes such a high-quality cup of coffee. The only niggles with the single-serve side is that it doesn’t come with an adjustable platform to accommodate different sized mugs and the brew strength option isn’t as good as the larger coffee maker on the other side, but this is only a minor issue.
The other great thing about the Cuisinart SS-15 is the option to pause the brewing process, so you can have the coffee when you are ready. Along with the option to select the auto on and off for when you are ready, these are all practical features from a reliable company.
Ease of Use
Even though the Cuisinart SS-15 coffee machine is built to cope with serving large quantities of coffee, it is still surprisingly easy to clean, thanks to its innovative features. There are two water trays, one for the carafe and another 40 oz. water tray for the single-serve side which are both removable for easy-cleaning purposes. As well as this, the drip tray is also removable, and the movable parts make it easy for dishwasher use. What’s more, the SS-15 tells you when it needs cleaning, illuminating the clean button to let you know. Now that ranks highly in how easy this coffee machine is to clean.
The Cuisinart SS-15 is also very easy to use, utilizing its easy press buttons and clear instructions, even those who aren’t great with technology will be able to use this coffee machine easily. It will need to be kept clean to avoid things like clogging if you’re not careful, but it’s simple to do and helps maintain the quality of this machine
To sum up the Cuisinart SS-15 coffee machine, it’s quite possibly up there with the best coffee machines on the market right now. This is because it’s got lots of features to suit the user, from the auto-on button to make coffee at a particular time, to the strength of coffee flavor. The SS-15 also comes with a 3-year warranty from a high-quality brand, meaning it’s very reliable and if something does go wrong with it, it can be fixed easily. The Cuisinart SS-15 coffee machine is exceptionally adaptable, giving you everything you could need from a coffee machine and benefits the users’ needs through customization.
