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: It is so nice having coffee ready for us when we get up in the morning. It takes a bit of stress and time off our daily morning routine before heading off to work. The coffee flavour is smooth and the machine looks very nice.
Summary: Bought this is a replacement for a similar model purchases 3.5 years ago. Note this has a 3 year warranty, and started leaking water after 3.5 years. Tried another brand as a replacement and ended up taking it back to the store. So, if you want great coffee at home this has to be one of the top choices.
Summary: This Cuisinart DCC-2600C machine makes good coffee, however the design and reliability are questionable. The coffee tastes good, and is definitely hot. The machine is fairly aesthetic, and looks right on the kitchen counter. However the design is questionable : the water tank is not easily accessible. Moreover, the reservoir is not removable, and it is hard not to accidentally put coffee in the water tank.
Summary: I am a coffee lover and and this machine delivers. I like my coffee really hot, I also like my coffee full of flavour and the water filter in this machine makes a huge difference in the taste. Whether you're making 4 cups or 14 cups of coffee, the flavour is incredible. I like the carafe since it doesn't drip all over the counter when pouring a cup of coffee. I also like the beeper which signals when the coffee is ready to serve.
Summary: I've had this coffee maker for two months now and I love it! Easy to use, several handy features and makes great tasting coffee! Well worth the expense. I would highly recommend this product. I found these reviews very helpful as well. Thanks!
