Summary: 1. Cannot put it under a cabinet because it's too tall with the lid up to add water. 2. Cannot put it anywhere else because the cord is only 2 feet long. A foot longer and I might have been able to make it work. Extension cord in a kitchen? Forget it. 3. Water reservoir level indicator on the right side of the unit. Can't be placed against the wall on the right side.
Summary: I really was happy with this coffee maker for the 1st 3 years. Looks good and makes great coffee but I have 2 problems that kept me from giving this a higher rating. It is difficult to pour the water into the reservoir without spilling and after about 3 years it started to leak from the bottom of the casing during brewing. I have seen other reviews about the leaking so this appears to be a commom problem.
Summary: Well, i was originally going to buy the DCC 1200 12 cup brewer, however, I went to Costco to see what they had there first before i purchssed the same product online. Well Costco didn't have that model but THIS 14-cup model instead for a phenomenal price of $60!!! So, I went back home, read the reviews for this model and was instantly swayed to purchase this it at Costco. I love everything about it!
Summary: My search for a good coffee maker is over! I tried and returned 4 coffee makers to the store before finding this one on Amazon. The ones that I returned were from Jura, Krups, Braun and Delonghi. All good names, but the coffee was weak or not hot enough. This Cuisinart has smart features including a bold/mild setting, 1-4 cup setting, warming plate temperature control, glass carafe (that doesn't drip) with a removable top for easy cleaning and a compact footprint.
Summary: I love this coffee maker! We are big coffee drinkers. I bought this one because it made 2 extra cups of coffee. When my family is here, we can go through five or six pots of coffee. I did not want to buy a commercial coffee maker and all of the others are tweleve cup coffee makers. Anyway, two extra cups help. I love the brew strenth option. You can choose the bold option for brewing. It also has an option of how hot to keep the coffee.
