make him read the hundreds of negative reviews dating to 2007 rightly blaming the torrent of coffee spilling everywhere on desig

Summary: Do NOT under ANY circumtances buy this coffee pot. You'll be tempted by the rave reviews -- but be strong! They were either written by Cuisinart employees under threat of dismemberment or by evil-doers intent on wreaking havoc upon relationships everywhere.
... over 5 years and consider it one of the best for the price

Summary: I have been using the DTC-975BKN coffee maker for over 5 years and consider it one of the best for the price. The thermal carafe keeps the coffee hot for several hours and will still be warm the next morning if you had coffee left over.

Summary: I hate this thing. I hate it. I hate it. I really wanted the thermal carafe which is why I bought the stupid thing. This thing is possessed. It will work fine four mornings out of five and then it goes crazy. I prepare the coffee the same way. I make sure the filter holder is seated properly.
Summary: I bought this unit mainly for the thermal carafe. That performs amazingly well. It will keep coffee steaming hot for at least 12 hours. So, any disappointments that follow are just nit-picking.
Summary: So far, so good. The first one I received worked only once. amazon replaced it immediately. The second one is working fine. Makes good coffee and keeps it warm for many hours. I did have one spillover but have been rinsing the basket ever since and so far, so good (again). It brews pretty quickly.
Think I may have found the ultimate problem- Back to loving my coffee pot!

Summary: Have had this coffee pot for over 10 years. Buying another for our camper and to have as a back up if the one I have ever decides to die. Also. They are discontinued in the stores and my first one cost me $130.00 10 years ago from Hudsons.
Large capacity carafe but not engineered for the masses

Summary: I bought this despite so many reviews complaining about it leaking. It was the only 12 cup thermal pot I could find. This is a coffee pot, how hard is it to engineer a consumer grade machine, right? I ran three pots of water through to test and rinse it out. First pot, perfect, no spills.
Summary: I do love this coffee maker! We just purchased this, but have already noticed a few very nice things. For one, the coffee stays VERY hot all day long! I have even noticed when I make a new pot of coffee the following morning, the left over coffee in the pot from the day before is still luke warm!
