Conclusion: The Cuisinart Coffee Maker DCC-1200 can be more expensive than other brands, which usually makes users think twice about getting it over other brands. Those who decided to get it though, realize later on that it is definitely worth it. It makes the best cup of coffee you can ever have at home or in the office. Probably one of the reasons for its flavor is the charcoal water filter, which is not something that you see often.
Summary: With a small-batch function and adjustable hot plate, the DCC-1200 can accommodate a variety of needs and preferences. Among standard coffee makers, the Cuisinart Brew Central offers more features and functionality than most, and does so in an attractive package. Most downsides are small, but long-term durability could be a concern.
Pros: Easy-to-handle carafe, Stylish, stainless-steel finish, Programmable, Small batch function
