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: Here is the good ... Makes good tasting coffee, the insulated thermal carafe keep the coffee hot for at least one hour. The 4 cup setting selection make the water hotter for better taste of small quantities. It is easy to use and easy to keep clean inside. Here is the bad ...

Summary: I chose this coffee maker over others because (1) I wanted coffee brewed at a hot temperature so the coffee tastes good (2) I wanted coffee to be easy to make (3) I wanted the coffee maker to last awhile, (4) I liked the idea of using the brew delay and carafe to have coffee ready when I wake up.
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.

Summary: Overall I like the coffee maker. It looks nice and brews coffee fast. I didn't know I would need the pointed filters when I bought it though. It keeps the coffee hot for many hours after brewing.
Summary: I bought this coffee maker because my son has one and raved about it. I'm happy with it's speed when brewing, the quality of the coffee, but don't like that it doesn't stay warm long. By the second cup, I have to heat my coffee in the microwave, and that's a pain!
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.
