Summary: Had to return it after 2 usages. Did not like the design...too gross. Coffee comes out cold. Water indicator does not work very well. I can't make less than 4 cups of coffee which is a big waste. I normaly make 2 cups in the morning. Too hard to pour the coffee, the cap comes loose. DeLonghi needs to redesign this machine.
Wish the "pot" engineers could make a dripless pourer

Summary: I've bought many a coffee pot over the last 65 years and my biggest complaint has been the fact that you can't pour without dripping (keep in mind, patience is not one of my virtues). I had investigated this DeLonghi DCF210TTC as thoroughly as possible without the benefit of actually pouring from it.
Summary: It was fabulous for 2 years exactly! It burned up and melted the top plate it got so hot. the thermostat or whatever controlled the heat it produced went bad. The whole top of coffee maker warped. spent alot of money for only 2 years of use. It did make great coffee and i miss the design. However i wont be buying another one.
Summary: Received this as a wedding present 2 years ago. I'm a huge coffee drinker and very disappointed in this machine. It makes ok coffee and I would have thought that the coffee would be a lot hotter seeing that it's a thermal carafe. I have to replace the unit because it doesn't use all the water to make the coffee and have to push the brew button several times.
Summary: WE HAVE NEVER BOUGHT THIS BRAND BEFORE BUT WE REALLY LIKE IT, 1. THE FRONT LOADING FEATURE MAKES THINGS A LOT EASIER AND 2. IT REALLY DOESN'T DRIP IF YOU TAKE THE CARAFE OUT BEFORE IT IS DONE BREWING. WE WOULD BUY THE SAME MODEL AGAIN.
Summary: I have had this coffee maker for less than two years. The two hour shutoff is way too short. The auto timer clock setting starts at 6:00 a.m., does not scroll backward and takes way too long to program for a 5:00 a.m. Start time. In less than 2 years the electronics went out. It won't shut off even though the lights go off after two hours - guess it fixed my complaint about the two hour shutoff...
