I prefer a relaxing cup of coffee.

 

Normally I would say that the "Cuisinart" name is a plus.

I assume the designer was fired. Way over-engineered.

Consumer review by:

Offers many features at a good price.

 

Nice unit for the price.  Looked at many units before buying this one.  The graduated gauge on the side is hard to read and the unit has a very small opening to pour the water into.  Makes it a challenge to pour water into the unit without making a...

College student's first coffee maker

 

I bought this coffee maker for about $35, mainly to keep me alive during finals week in college (this is my first coffee maker ever). During regular days when I don't have exams to study for, I only drink coffee maybe 4 times a week, so this coffee...

Messy, grounds get into water reservoir

Messy, grounds and coffee scum build up in water reservoir

 

I really wanted a 12-cup thermal w/ stainless carafe but was not willing to pay $130 for the Cuisinart sold at Starbucks without some knowledge of Cuisinart coffee makers. I bought the DCC-1000 at Lowe's on sale for $49. This machine makes good, very...

Old age while still young?

 

This coffee maker was received as a gift several years ago, (the three-year guarantee has expired). Except for the water filling issue noted by others, until recently we had no serious problems with this machine and we have been pleased with the design...

Good coffee quality ; good styling

Great coffeemaker, but with a few niggles.

 

A few months back, I decided to buy a new coffee maker to replace the basic $19 GE 12-cup Wally-World unit that had served me dutifully, albeit in a very utilitarian manner. I had a brief encounter with a Farberware FAC400C 10-cup coffee maker (see my...

Tasty brew. Visual appeal. Relative compactness

Awkward filling process. Irritating drip-stop feature
