Coffee is a beverage that most of us cannot live without. We start our day with a cup of coffee, and we enjoy a cup in the afternoon. There are just so many brands and varieties to choose from that it can be a little overwhelming. Cuisinart vs Braun Coffee Maker. This blog will compare two of the most popular coffee makers: The Cuisinart Grind-and-Brew and the Braun KF7110.
Coffee makers are generally a personal device, with people choosing the kinds of coffee they prefer and the brand they go by. Cuisinart and Braun are two of the more popular brands that produce commercial-grade coffee makers and to get the right one for you, you’ll need to look at some of the differences between them.
I have been a happy Braun coffee maker user for years. In fact, I had to throw my old one out after it finally gave up the ghost. But I couldn’t use it anymore because the Braun coffee maker I had was leaking water all over the counter. At first I thought it was just me and my wife who was making the mess but when I realized it was the machine, I went out to the nearest mall and got a new Cuisinart coffee maker instead.

Features of Cuisinart Coffee Maker
Instead of keeping coffee grounds in contact with hot water for as long as possible, coffee makers use a filter basket to separate coffee grounds from brewed coffee before serving. The advantage is that only freshly brewed coffee drips down into your cup. This makes it easier to get a good pot since you don’t have to reheat over and over again. If you’re just brewing enough for one or two people, it can be difficult to use larger quantities of pre-ground beans without them going stale and losing flavor quickly, which gets expensive fast.
Hot Water Dispenser
The Hot Water Dispenser is an excellent feature to have for an electric drip coffee maker. Not only does it come in handy when you want hot water for making soups, but also if you want to brew a cup of tea or some other hot beverage, like cocoa or lemonade. It takes about 4-6 minutes for it to dispense enough water for a 12-oz. cup depending on how hard your tap water is.
The Grind Adjustment feature allows you to personalize your brew, whether you’re a slow brew aficionado or an I-want-my-coffee-now! kind of person. If you like a medium grind, select from one to four cups in number (though it can be any amount). If you want a finer grind, press and hold button for three seconds; for coarser grounds, do so for five seconds. You’ll hear Clunk! when it resets.
The Sneak-A-Cup feature allows you to sneak in a single cup before brewing is finished. This comes in handy if you like a single cup in the morning, but don’t want to wake up your entire household by making an entire pot. If you have guests over for coffee and would rather not spend time setting up a full brew, use this feature to get exactly what you need. Simply choose your size, press Sneak-A-Cup, pour your cup and then enjoy!
Brew Pause Function
Brew Pause lets you enjoy a cup of coffee before brewing has finished, so you can taste your coffee before it’s done. You can pause your brewing at any time to pour yourself a cup without worrying about overcooking your beans. This is one feature that makes Cuisinart such a good choice for making a single cup as well as a whole pot – if you prefer one over another, Brew Pause allows you to achieve exactly what you want with ease
Braun Coffee Maker
Features of Braun Coffee Maker
One of our favorite features on Braun coffee makers is its auto-on/off feature. When you set your coffee maker to start brewing at a specific time every day, your machine will also turn itself off when it’s done brewing for you. This makes cleanup and maintenance easy—no more worrying about leaving your brewer on in between uses!
Warm up coffee or tea in a hurry with Thermoblock technology. In one minute, you’ll have boiling water ready to be poured into your coffee grounds or tea bag. (1-minute heat-up not intended for brewing espresso.) The heating plate also keeps coffee hot between sips, perfect for when guests drop by. And clean up is easy—the drip tray pulls out and doubles as a cord storage area.
Integrated Bean Sensor
Braun’s integrated bean sensor determines how much coffee is in your basket. This ensures that you’ll always have just as much coffee as you need for a perfect brew. Once you fill your basket with ground beans, slide it into position and allow Braun to do its thing. As soon as it’s done brewing, your machine will shut off automatically. No more worry about burning coffee or filling up a French press only to find that you didn’t use enough grounds! Braun remembers your personal preferences:
Preset Brewing Profiles
The 1400-watt heating element that is featured in Braun coffee makers allows you to brew several cups of coffee quickly. You can have a fresh cup of coffee ready for you when you wake up in the morning. The 1400-watt heating element heats your water quickly so that you can brew delicious tasting coffee. It also gives you three different brewing options including single cup, half pot and full pot. You will be able to brew up to 8 cups at one time on some models, while others can hold as many as 10 cups depending on how much coffee you would like to make at one time.
LCD Control Center with Backlit Display
We’ve made it easier than ever to brew a fresh, delicious pot of coffee. The digital display and precise controls let you program up to 24 hours in advance so that your coffee is ready when you are. Plus, convenient backlit buttons make programming at night or other low-light conditions easy and safe. And our special menu button makes it easy to access options such as water filters, clock displays, programming and more.
Coffee makers are really a personal choice. I have always been a fan of Braun and their products. However, in this case, I guess I was disappointed with the performance and quality of the coffee maker. I had been hearing about the Cuisinart coffee maker for quite some time and the one I ended up getting was the Cuisinart DCC-3200 14-Cup Thermal Programmable Coffeemaker. The coffee maker I have been using ever since is working like a dream and my wife and I never have to worry about spilling coffee on the counter or floor anymore.
