Cuisinart SS-700 Coffee Brewer Review
Customers will get customization, a large reservoir and strong coffee from the SS-700.
The Cuisinart SS-700's MSRP ($199) is about $30 more than the Bosch Tassimo T45, but users will get what they pay for. The Cuisinart SS-700 produces an impressive TDS of 1.40 in the small cup while the Tassimo T45 tops out at 1.15. The SS-700 also beats the T45 in speed as it brews in 68 seconds while the T45 takes 90 seconds to make coffee. Its water reservoir is much bigger: 79.5 ounces compared to 52 ounces. Furthermore,T45's reservoir isn't easy to remove because it's at the back of the machine and it will only brew the Tassimo T Discs and not ones from competing manufacturers. If you still need convincing, the SS-700 allows users to customize their brewing process with cup size and temperature settings.
In short, the Cuisinart makes better coffee and is more versatile than the Tassimo model, all for just thirty dollars more. You'll get a lot of value out of that extra $30.
