Cuisinart Brew Central Coffee Maker review

 

The Cuisinart Brew Central Coffee Maker creates 12 cups and has a useful Brew Pause function.

Large capacity ; Brew Pause function ; Variable heater plate

The clock is small and hard to read ; Quite basic ; You have to fill it up with the carafe, which is hard to measure

The Cuisinart Brew Central Coffee Maker creates a large amount of coffee fairly quickly, but it lacks in other areas such as a milk frother.

Best coffe maker I have had

 

I love coffee, and this coffee maker is awesome! Makes the coffee quick and hot. It has an adjustable time for keeping warm which helps in the morning. I love every feature. Only draw back that I can find is no water measure from outside the coffee...

Lasted about 18 months

 

This is my second second Cuisinart coffee maker. The first one was a similar model, but older. It lasted about 4 years before it stopped working. I may consider the insulated pot verson the next time.

It makes a good pot of coffee relatively quickly. I like the programmability. It's fairly intuitive and easy to program. I like the feature of telling when it needs to be descaled. We have hard water, and that's a useful bonus that I haven't seen on...

The warmer plate has stopped working after about 18 months. Now the coffee is lukewarm within a half an hour or so after brewing. It's still under warranty, but I'll have the expense and hassle of sending it to Cuisinart for repair.

lasted right up to the warrenty

 

I wish ii had put the extended warranty on it.

works great, i like the auto turn off and the ability to set the warmer plate

charcoal filter seems silly. not sure it did much ( i did buy about 8 of them before i stopped). as of this week it turns itself off after it starts to brew. you don't notice till you comeback for your eye opener and it hadn't finished. bummer. i...

Great Machine

 

Really my cons are on the weak side and only a minor inconvenience. Would not cause me to shop a different brand next time. I have seen many reviews of this unit with people complaining of the lid warping because of steam produced during brewing. But...

Lots of usable functions. Auto-On, Auto Shutoff, High-Medium-Low temp settings. Charcoal Filter, reusable filter basket, 1-4 cup feature which ensures coffee is at right temperature. Toggle switch for On/Off makes it easy to know the switch was hit....

Heavy condensation build up can cause drips on to hot plate when removing carafe to pour a cup o joe.. Cleaning of filter basket can be a bummer if unit not used daily. Easy to overcome that obstacle if you use paper filter option.

Coffee!

 

For $90? Eh okay. Any higher and I think I'd get offended. But lots of great features that I barely use. Not sure I like the retro knob... I'm mildly afraid I'm going to break it. ... And it just seems terribly out of place. Was cuisinart designing a...

works, not hot enough, hard to read water level

 

Easy to use, easy to clean, as advertised.

The water dripping into the coffee filter is simply NOT hot enough. The hot plate does a decent job in heating the coffee AFTER it is brewed, however, the optimal temperature to actually brew the coffee is 195-210F. The water level marker is actually...
