Easy to use Shuts off after brewing and not able to turn heat plate back on
7 August 2013
Summary: The only thing I don't like about this coffee maker is it shuts off after brewing is complete and you cannot turn the heating plate back on. My husband gets up anywhere between 2- 4 hours before me. So I end up having to nuke the coffee.
Summary: This coffee maker will make the best coffee any coffee machine will ever make. I've had lots of different brands, but this one is by far my favorite. I'm on my third one. And thereby hangs a tale. If you mess up and put too much coffee in, it overflows and good luck with having it ever work again. The overflowed coffee goes right into the electronics board. Okay, so I learned my lesson.
Summary: I had a Cuisinart with a Glass carafe. The Carafe broke so I decided to purchase this DCC-1150 10 Cups Coffee Maker. The only down for me is that it shuts off once the coffee is brewed and the thermal carafe does not keep the coffee as hot as my original Coffee Maker which has a temperature guide. Other that it is great. I love my Cuisinart Coffee Maker.
Summary: I found the coffee maker quite easy to setup and use right out of the box. Friends have made comments that the new coffee maker made great coffee - they never made such a comment before. I find not having to press a button to pour coffee an outstanding design. I also like the easy to open twist off carafe lid. My single complaint (and why my rating was not 5 stars) is that the LCD display is difficult to read even in the daytime without direct lighting.
