... 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: This is the THIRD of these coffee pots that I have owned. They are attractive units and the carafe is very good at keeping coffee hot. Also, the seller sent out the unit immediately, and the price was right. I give 5 STARS!
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.
Summary: This is the third Cuisinart coffee maker we've bought in the past 12 years - one was to take to our vacation place - so longevity is not an issue! We like this coffee maker due to the caraffe (sp?) keeping the coffee hot for a prolonged period of time! Easy to make - quick to brew.
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!
