Brewing Process

The Cuisinart SS-700 isn't tough to use and follows along the same simple brewing process as other Keurig-brewed machines.

There's nothing out of the ordinary when it comes to setting up the Cuisinart SS-700 for brewing. First step is to place your cup beneath the brewing chamber.

Next, users need to ensure that the water reservoir is full and ready to go. The Cuisinart SS-700 doesn't even let you view the menu options without having the proper amount of water in the reservoir.

You should then place the K-Cup inside the Cuisinart SS-700's brewing chamber and close the brewing chamber by pulling the lever down.

You will have the option of deciding how hot you want your drink. The Cuisinart SS-700 comes with a pre-set temperature of 192 degrees and you can raise or lower that number with the arrows below the screen. While this isn't a feature that common in all pod coffee brewers, many of the newer Keurig machines, such as the Keurig Special Edition B60, offer users the option.

There's also the option to decide the size of your drink, which ranges from 6-12 ounces and an option of 4 ounces for cold drinks.

Hit "Brew" and your coffee will start to dispense!

Cleaning & Maintenance

There aren't too many loose parts in the Cuisinart SS-700 to clean. Users can pull out and wash the reservoir and its top, the drip catcher and platform, and the "My K-Cup" filter. Cuisinart says that the reservoir and its lid should stay out of the dishwasher and that users should clean them with a damp, soapy, non-abrasive cloth.

Other Features

One of the Cuisinart SS-700's best features is its My K-Cup filter. The filter is stored in a compartment on the right side and allows you to use your own grains when brewing coffee. You can use this filter if the K-Cups aren't quite strong enough for you or if you prefer another brand.
