Do not buy

 

The coffee maker makes coffee alright but you don't know where the settings are after 1 month.

Makes coffee

After 1 month all the numbers and letters came off the face, customer service sucks, no help at all on warranty they will charge $10 + shipping to get a replacement on their defective product. I will never buy another Cuisinart product after I have...

Well worth the money

 

This coffee maker makes excellent coffee! The coffee seems to get better and better every day with minimal adjustments to the amount of coffee used. No problems with pouring the water in. I welcome being told when the coffee is ready, especially when I...

None that I have noticed

Cuisinart DCC-1100 12 Cup Programmable Coffee Maker: a perfect coffee maker

 

After being fairly disappointed with our last coffee maker, I decided to bite the bullet and purchase a new Cuisinart Coffee DCC-1100 maker for about $50.00. It was a bit more to pay, but it has been an excellent coffee maker so far. Our family is...

This is the perfect coffee maker for our family

Better than the old coffeemaker

 

I had a Black and Decker Thermos coffeemaker. Could not clean the top of the thermos -- water and coffee would drain in and would not drain out. Bought this Cuisinart (best price - thank you Overstock!) and months later, I love it! The option to...

Makes Great Coffee

 

So far, so good, it makes a great cup of coffee. Can't comment on the timer, because we haven't used that feature yet. Also, we only used the paper filters twice, and then just used the gold filter alone, which is all that's needed. My husband thinks...

Good Cup of Coffee

 

I just finished my first cup from this coffee maker, the Cuisinart DCC-1200. I did a lot of shopping and research, and mainly did not want to spend a ton of money, but I am addicted to my morning cups and needed to replace a leaking Krups machine we...

Nice looking, quality Cusinart. Coffee is not bitter. Has an optional water

The grooves on the top of the lid are going to collect dust

Cuisinart Coffeemaker: Bleeping Beeps!

 

I'm up at 6am. It's still dark outside. I make coffee in my new Cuisinart Classic DCC-1100 Coffeemaker. I sit down to read the morning paper and suddenly I think "What the f... is beeping?" It's a shrill tone, 5 beeps and sounds like a...

Inexpensive, makes 12 cups of good coffee

No way to shut off that bleeping beeping

Basic coffee maker

 

This coffee maker was purchased about 1 1/2 years ago to replace an inexpensive unit that did not keep the coffee hot after brewing. The first cup would be okay but the temperature of the warming plate was unacceptable.

Basic coffee maker with good warming plate temperature

Water filling is a bit cumbersome

Cuisinart 12 cup Coffee Maker DDC-1100

 

My Krups pot finally gave up and I had no idea what to buy in a coffeemaker!  I purchased a new Krups model --hated the "fancy" features and returned it.  I just brought home the Cuisinart 1100 today.  I am very particular, so I think I will quite...

Easy to use programable timer, great temperature coffee, attractive; automatic shut off

Tiny and light numbered increments on the resevoir strip;  Small area to pour in water
