    • MOST HELPFUL REVIEWS

    • I have used many Cuisinart products including coffeemakers for years. This is the worst I have bought.

      No outside water window which makes pouring water difficult since one can't see (the old ones are hard enough). The toggles are silly, and it is hard to see the black line on the main switch in order to put it back on "On". I also tried to buy another carafe in white as I always like to have another carafe on hand, but none listed for this model...just black. Very disappointed.

      Cuisinart or whoever owns them now need to go back to the basics and make a better coffeemaker. Appreciate this website asking my opinion. The water window is hard enough to read on the outside, but to put it on the inside is stupid!

    • It makes very good coffee and we like it a lot. The only thing we miss from other coffee makers is an external guage that tells how much water is in the maker

    • A great value

      I spent a long time researching coffeemakers to replace my ten-year-old Krups coffeemaker when it broke, and I am glad I finally chose Cuisinart. Because I work in a coffee shop, I am very particular about coffee. This Cuisinart coffeemaker is practical and reasonably-priced without so many of the ridiculous (and unnecessary) features on some of the more expensive models. In my opinion, there is no need to spend more money on a home coffeemaker if you like drip coffee--more bells and whistles do not change the quality, only the amount of hassle and the likelihood of malfunction. Having said that, I would admit that this model has some nice "extra" features, including a programmable brew function (so the coffee is waiting for you when you drag yourself out of bed), as well as an auto shut off feature (so you don't have to worry all day about whether you turned off the coffee pot!). Like some of the other reviewers have mentioned, the water level guage can be a bit tough to read, since it requires looking down inside the water tank (a problem if you are especially short, but otherwise no big deal). While this style of coffeemaker in any brand tends to be somewhat larger than more basic coffeemakers, the Cuisinart is very stylish and doesn't look out of place on the kitchen counter. The stainless steel wipes clean and doesn't show dirt or dust. Really, this was a great purchase, and I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants a quality, reliable coffeemaker that makes a great cup of coffee.

      I recommend this product.

    • Great coffee maker

      This is one of the best coffee makers we have had in years. It makes great coffee, pours without spilling, and has timers for everything. We have had several coffee pots that made poor coffee and every time you poured a cup of coffee, it spilled. I love this coffee maker.

    • Great coffee maker... and beautiful too!

      We've been very pleased with this coffee maker so far. We've had it for about a month and it is used daily (although mostly for making tea!)... The functions are all clear and nicely planned, and the design is beautfiul and clean (I especially love the toggle switch, which feels pleasantly solid and mechanical versus a plastic one). I really like the option to tell it you are brewing 1-4 cups, as well being able to adjust the temperature of the warming plate. We have well water, so the water filter is a nice feature as well, and I found it easy to insert the filter system.

      The unit is rather tall, which could be an issue for some. Our cabients are low though, so we'd have to pull the unit out to fill it regardless of the model. We've had no issue filling the water reservoir, and it can be cleaned with a long scrub brush. I can see where for someone who isn't very tall, the lack of an exterior water level meter could make it difficult to use *if* -and only if - you don't use the markings on your carafe to gauge the water level. When I fill the carafe up to ten cups, I assume that what gets into the coffee maker is 10 cups minus a few drops, so I don't look at the meter anyway!

      The only thing I would change is probably based in part on habit from our old coffee maker and in part on durability: I wish the lid to the Cuisinart cafare was hinged so you could just press to open, rather than having to snap the lid off and on when filling with water. While being able to remove the lid makes it easlier to clean the carafe, all that off and on seems like it will eventually cause the plastic lid to break. I'm thinking about trying to order a replacement lid now just in case.

      As for price, we bought ours with a gift certificate so our out of pocket cost was about $30. I'm not sure, at full retail price of $150, that I would have bought this coffee maker, but the cooking.com price of $80 seems quite reasonable. As long as this one lasts for a few years, I'd gladly by again at that price.

      I recommend this product.

    • Coffeemaker definitely worth considering

      I purchased this coffeemaker to replace the Braun I have had for several years. I am a Braun person but they quit manufacturing the 12 cup model which I had worn out long years ago. I wanted to replace my 10 cup Braun with another 12 cup maker so I wound up purchasing this Cuisinart. I do like the fact that it makes 12 cups of coffee and is very easy to operate. A couple of down things and they're only negatives if they bother you. The water reservoir is hard to fill and the coffeemaker is rather tall. I have to pull it out from under my overhead cabinets to fill it. It does not have an outside viewer for the water level, so because it is so tall, I have to stand on my tiptoes to see how much water I am pouring in. Also the controls on the front are turn knobs instead of pushbuttons which I consider to be a little more inconvenient. It is not easy to clean and the parts have to be placed back in just so or the lid will not close on the top . However, all that said. It makes an awesome cup of coffee. Also, since it has a filter that filters the water, it must be replaced periodically and that is not really convenient to do either. I will likely not buy this model again but would buy another cuisinart if they make a few imrovements in syle. For now it serves the purpose and we will see how long I last with it. The price was good here on cooking.com and the shipping was great (free). At Christmas time that's definitely a plus.

    • Cuisinart Coffee maker

      We love this coffee maker. It is very well made, very attractively designed and looks very high end. Although we read of some complaints about the size of the opening for the water, we have no problem with it at all. Of course the quality of the coffee is dependent upon the beans one uses and your water supply but the coffee comes out hot and ours is delicious. It is very easy to clean. One suggestion for new users, the basket needs to be correctly and firmly pressed down. The bottom line is, this is my favorite coffee maker in forty five years!

    • Great Coffee

      I am very satisfied with the 12 cup Brew Central Coffe Maker. I especially appreciate the 1-4 cup feature as my wife uses decaff because of some heart issues, but I am all for caffine.

      I also life the varied temperature control for the warmer feature. With a full caraffe of coffee it keeps things hot to the end.

      I would recomend this product to anyone looking for a good coffee maker.

      We had recently tried another brand that was twice as expensive. While it made coffee quicker, it didn't have half the features of this model. We are quite pleased with this purchase.

    • Brew Central is Great!

      I have been using the Brew Central coffee maker for about 3 weeks and like it very much. I use the auto brew function to have coffee ready in the morning. I found the coffee maker easy to program and easy to clean. I love the ability to select the temperature for the heating pad. I like my cofee hot and this coffee maker delivers on that! It fits perfectly under my cabinets when sitting on my kitchen counter. I've had problems with other coffee makers that were too tall.

      I am so glad I decided to purchase this coffee maker. It makes the best cup of coffee and it seems to stay hotter than my old pot. The only thing that I do wish is that the digital clock display would light up at night.

    • It's not the worst coffee pot I've had, but it's not the best, either. It's makes a really annoying clicking-type noise after the brew cycle is done. Don't wash the carafe in the dishwasher. All the water gets caught in the metal trim on the carafe. The timer works great. I could take it or leave it.
