If you are looking for a better than average K-cup machine at a very attractive price, the Cuisinart SS-300 is a machine you should look into.

The machine uses K-cups, so you get the same basic brewing options as a conventional Keurig coffee machine. In addition, this unit offers three features which are not always standard in machines in this price range. The first is three different brew sizes, and the second is a built-in hot water button for soups, tea or any other hot-water-based beverages. Finally, the Cuisinart SS-300 has a built-in charcoal filter, which will improve the water quality and extend the lifetime of the machine.

The are two main drawbacks to the unit. The first is a heating-up time of 2 minutes, which is significantly longer than average. The other is the design. The Cuisnart SS-300 does not have the level of finishor quality of appearance of some other machines.

The Cuisinart SS-300 review score is 5.5 out of 10.
