Summary: The Cuisinart DCC- 1150 10 Cup Coffee Maker is a decent coffee maker overall with an equal share of pros and cons. I have owned several different coffee makers over the years and have used several Cuisinart coffee makers, but I never owned one until now.
Summary: This coffee maker does make coffee fine and it does look sharp. Hence the 3 stars - Has all the right programming etc - no fault there. However I have to tell you - it will not keep the coffee hot.
Summary: Purchased DTC975 2 years ago and miss the hot coffee all day long (GREAT thermal carafe). The problem with the DTC975 is the base located controls that get shorted out if the filter gets clogged and coffee overflows. So I purchased the DCC1150 with the controls are on the top and away from spillage.
Excerpt: I nursed my Krups coffee maker for a few months after it started to periodically leak and finally decided to find a new one. I read a lot of reviews and decided one of the Cuisinarts was worth a try.I selected the 1150 because it had a stainless steel carafe that was supposed to keep the coffee warm...
Summary: I bought this Cusinart thermal coffee maker right around New Years 2011. I really liked it -- for as long as it lasted. It makes a good cup of coffee quickly and the thermal carafe kept the coffee hot all morning, which was wonderful.
Summary: We had the 12 cup Cuisinart for a long time, but the carafe actually got pretty gross inside so I wanted to replace it. When I saw the price of a replacement carafe, I decided just to buy this 10 cup model instead since we rarely need an entire 12 cups of coffee anyways.
Summary: We wanted a coffee pot that was thermal so that the coffee didn't cook on the burner and I liked the features such as programmable timer and clean indicator as well as the charcoal filters to remove chlorine from the water. We made the final decision to purchase because of the Cuisinart name.
