Best standard coffee maker


The Cuisinart Brew Central DCC-1200 is the best standard coffee maker, according to reviews. Critics say this automatic-drip machine is much better than a basic low-priced coffee maker, thanks to its durability, its excellent coffee and its features,...

Great-tasting coffee, durable, small-batch setting, three-setting hot plate, three-year warranty

No water-level window on reservoir, clock isn't backlit

It went belly up way too quickly

Consumer review by: gentrysm (

Was great until it died...


Only lasted 3 years then for about 2 days it would shut off after just a few minutes.

Timer features , auto shutoff, 1-4 cup brew cycle

Built to not be repairable by owner and based on several others' comments only lasts for 2-3 years.

Best buy on the market


I purposely avoided writing a review here for at least a year so that when I did write one, it would have more weight with prospective buyers.

Great coffee! Excellent engineering and good quality for price. NOT junk.

Very few, and all very minor.
