Cuisinart SS-780 Single Serve Coffee Brewer

41O9JgfN5KL._SL500_AA300_.jpg

It looks like the Cuisinart SS-700 brewer is being marketed under the SS-780 and the SS-780PC model numer. The brewer is an updated SS-700 with ultra-quiet brew technology from Keurig that uses K-Cups and the Reusable My K-Cup. The Cuisinart SS-780 is identical to the SS-700 but it does come with a larger selection of K-Cups in the Costco offering (check out the SSC Forums post for details).

You can read our full review of the SS-700 here to familiarize yourself with the features of the Cuisinart SS series of single serve coffee brewers.

Review: Cuisinart SS700 Single Serve Coffee K-Cup Brewing System

Review Single Serve Coffee

CUSSS700_review.jpg

The Cuisinart SS700 Single Serve Coffee Brewing System is the first Cuisinart coffee brewer to use K-Cups for making tea, hot chocolate, and of course coffee. The Cuisinart SS700 Single Serve Coffee Brewing System features a very large 80 oz water reservoir, iced and regular coffee brewing settings, along with storage of a My K-Cup resusable coffee filter. It also features a very fresh yet angular Cuisinart industrial design, along with a very easy to read blue LCD display. We've been looking forward to more options in K-Cup brewers, and it's really nice to have a brewer from a major brand like Cuisinart.

Update: The Cuisinart Keurig Single-Cup Brewer SS-700 and SS-780 is available direct at Green Mountain Coffee and is also under the model number SS-780. The SS-780 will come with a selection of K-Cups but the brewer is the same.

If you want to compare exhaustively the features of other Keurig Brewers we suggest reading the following Single Serve Coffee reviews, however we'll do our best to cover all the differences and innovations we find in this review as well.

The SS700 has an 80 oz water reservoir. Yes - we said 80.

There is also a ton of info and reviews in our Reviews, Keurig & K-Cups, Keurig Reviews, and K-Cup reviews categories of entries. That's just the prep - now on with the review.

Cuisinart SS700 Single Serve K-Cup Brewer First Impressions

SDC11216.jpg

We've been using the Cuisinart SS700 Single Serve K-Cup Brewer over the past week, and we thought we'd share some unboxing pictures and of course our first impressions.

  • The Reservoir is huge - almost a 1/3 larger than the standard B70 Keurig water reservoir
  • The My K-Cup storage on the side is novel - but we are missing the coffee scoop spoon that comes with the Breville - we like not having to find a scoop to add the coffee
  • The controls are nice and the display icons are a bit clearer - showing the ounces in the silhouette of the cup icon
  • It's very quiet so that's nice the Quiet Brew technology is throughout all the Keurig models now
  • The metal outer coating wipes up easily and is very solid - but it also feels really industrial

You get the brewer, sample K-Cups, charcoal filter, and instructions.

More impressions in our full review next week where we answer your questions as well. You can sound off in the comments or add to our Cuisinart Questions thread in the Single Serve Coffee Forums. Also you can tweet us a questions or two, and send us questions on our Facebook page. Whatever the method, we'll try and get these questions answered within the context of the review.

Cuisinart SS-1 Coffee Maker at Tuesday Morning

564027e.jpg

Tuesday morning will have the Cuisinart single serve coffee maker for $99 starting February 3rd, and some members of the Single Serve Coffee Forums are already seeing the SS-1 at their local Tuesday Morning. Not familiar with Tuesday Morning? It's a discount retailer that often has close outs of single serve coffee makers, linens, and other goodness. We really think the SS-1 at $99 (almost 1/2 off) is a total steal. The SS-1 is one of the best coffee pod brewers we've tested, and if you have a Tuesday Morning near you - pick one up.

Review: Cuisinart SS-1 Cup-O-Matic Single Serve Coffee Maker - Use Coffee Pods or Ground Coffee

Review from Single Serve Coffee.com - Coffee Pod Reviews 564027E

With the introduction of the Cuisinart SS-1 Cup-O-Matic Single Serve Coffee Maker, you can finally purchase a single serve coffee maker that uses ground coffee and coffee pods all in the same filter basket. This is also the first coffee pod brewer to feature a charcoal water filter inside the water reservoir.

  • Cuisinart SS-1 Cup-O-Matic Single Serve Coffee Maker first news

In-Store Single Serve Coffee Sightings: Keurig B70 and Cuisinart SS-1 Cup-O-Matic

Img 0292
The Keurig B70 at $119 after discounts at
Sharper Image.

We recently spotted the Keurig B70 at a local Sharper Image store here in Massachusetts. They have a quite a deal on the Keurig B70 - $49 dollars off, and you can save an additional $30 on the in-store demo machine, bringing the price of the machine to $119. They look to be clearing these models for the new improved Keurig B70 - which has a better extraction and needle for puncturing K Cups. Whatever the reason, we love our current B70, and think this is a total steal.

You can also see the new Cuisinart SS-1 Cup-o-matic Single Serve Coffee maker at Williams-Sonoma. The price is $199.99 and the machine wasn't in the demo line up - though the sales person said they were scheduled to be demoing it soon. We were also told if we wanted, they would fire the machine up and give us a test drive. This is one of the reasons we like Williams-Sonoma - there is always over 10+ coffee machines to test out.

We'll have more in-store sightings as we see them.

Using Ground Coffee: Cuisinart SS-1 Cup-O-Matic Single Serve Coffee Maker

564027E-1

The Cuisinart SS-1 Cup-O-Matic Single Serve Coffee Maker can make coffee using coffee pods or just plain old ground coffee. We have been waiting for a single serve coffee machine to use ground coffee, and for the process not to be a mess, require an additional coffee filter, and to take roughly the same amount of time to prepare. We're happy to say, the Cuisinart SS-1 Cup-O-Matic Single Serve Coffee Maker is the easiest to use single serve coffee machine that can use ground coffee we've ever tested.

Img 4990

Coffee using ground coffee instead of coffee pods.

The process is very simple, because you use the exact same coffee pod filter/ground coffee holder for both brewing methods. The filter basket is made out of metal, so there are no paper coffee filters to use here. The coffee filter basket can hold up to two coffee pods in the 7-11 gram variety, and it can hold up to two scoops of ground coffee for a total of 4 tablespoons of coffee, from the provided coffee scoop in the same filter basket.

You simply put two scoops of coffee (this is the max at 4 tablespoons - though we had ours overfilling the scoop most times) into the basket, and then put the settings on Ground, pick a cup size of 4-12 oz, and then pick the Regular or Bold coffee setting. The results?

First Impressions: Cuisinart SS-1 Cup-O-Matic Single Serve Coffee Maker

564027E

We've been using the Cuisinart SS-1 Cup-O-Matic Single Serve Coffee Maker over the past week and we can say right away - this is an amazing single serve coffee maker, and perhaps one of the best single serve coffee pod brewers we've ever tested. At first we were a little taken back by the straight lines of the design, and the price at $199, but after a week of testing we think the brewer is more than worth it's weight in gold.

One of the things we really like is the brew methods. You can pick between bold or regular when using your favorite coffee or coffee pods, and it does really make a difference. The other big addition over other single serve coffee makers is the piston that squeezes out that last bit of coffee from the coffee pod at the end of the brew cycle, thus eliminating wet soppy coffee pods in the coffee pod holder.

Unboxing the Cuisinart SS-1 Cup-O-Matic Single Serve Coffee Maker

Img 4954

It's finally arrived - the Cuisinart SS-1 Cup-O-Matic Single Serve Coffee Maker. You can use ground coffee or coffee pods with this Cuisinart single serve coffee maker, and the product features a flavor selector to control coffee intensity (and yes - we've already tried it this morning). The big surprise? The unit features a piston that moves down into place and presses onto the coffee pod to get all that yummy coffee out. That's got to be a single serve coffee first - the coffee pod piston. And one more surprise? It comes with Lavazza coffee pods. Yep - you read that correctly - Lavazza coffee pods.

Here are some pictures of the unboxing of this amazing new coffee pod brewer.

Cuisinart SS-1 Cup-O-Matic Single Serve Coffee Maker - Use Coffee Pods or Ground Coffee

564027E

We just found out about the new Cuisinart SS-1 Cup-O-Matic Single Serve Coffee Maker that will be released in October of this year from reader Jeff S. You can use ground coffee or coffee pods with this single serve coffee maker, and the product features a flavor selector to control coffee intensity. You can also choose a 4 to 12-oz. cup size depending on your coffee need, and get this - the water reservoir - complete with water filter (YES! A WATER FILTER!) - has a 75-oz. capacity so a quick cup is never far away. What's not to love? Well - the price is a bit on the higher side at $199, but if it can compete with the Bunn My Cafe on Brew quality - then we may have another coffee pod wonder on our hands.

  • Brew basket can accommodate coffee pods as well as ground coffee and 60 ounce water reservoir holds enough to ten 6 ounce cups of coffee.
  • Low pressure pump and boiler system with patented tamping and sealing method for better tasting coffee
  • Cup selector 4 to 12 ounces and can select regular or bold coffee flavor. Removable drip tray can accommodate coffee cup from 4 ounces to Cuisinart's travel mug (170mm)
  • 2 minute pre-heat time and charcoal water filter removes impurities. Auto shut-off (2hours from last use) Water level indicator on front.
  • Scoop with brush included and easy to clean.
