    • 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.

    • Wonderful Coffee Maker

      Really enjoy the coffee and the controls are very easy to use! The water fill area could be a little larger-------would be faster to fill. Would buy again as long as it doesn't give out in the next 2-3 years!

    • Coffee pours into cup, not onto counter

      Bought this based on a thorough review on another site. The one thing that stands out is that coffee pours out of the carafe & doesn't drip anywhere except into your cup. Also for me, not having a swing-out filter holder means added durability.

      I recommend this product.

    • BEST COFFEE MAKER I'VE EVER HAD

      The Cuisinart coffeemaker is excellent. It brews the hottest, most delicious coffee, has an adjustable automatic shut off, from one to four hours, beeps both when the coffee has finished brewing and after the auto shutoff and has a truly drip proof pot. The only drawback is that there is no water indicator window on the outside of the coffeemaker. The water indicator on the inside on the top is so difficult to see that filling the pot from the top is awkward.

    • SIMPLY PUT, GREAT COFFEE!

      After purchasing this 12 cup Brew Central Coffee Maker by Cuisinart, my husband and I decided it is the best coffeemaker we have ever owned. The coffee is simply wonderful! I love that the carafe does not drip when you pour from it and the coffee seems to brew quicker than other makers. All the features this maker has makes it even easier to brew great coffee. While it is true that the water reserve is small, it's a very minor detail if what you are looking for is truly great coffee.

    • I really like this coffee maker--we originally had purchased the Cuisinart with the thermal carafe and returned it for various reasons. This one is much better, my only complaint is that the water level indicator is extremely difficult to read. We usually put water in the pot to measure it, then pour it in.

    • Awkward features

      There are several awkward features of this coffee pot.
      The water level indicators are located inside the narrow water well. For measures less than 8 cups you must look from directly above the well.
      The pot lid is challenging to click in properly.
      The toggle switch should be replaced by a flush switch.
      The water well is so narrow that I am wondering how I will remove the inevitable scale and lime effectively.

      Extremely nice! the glass pot, lid and coffee basket can all go in the dishwasher, so that makes it very easy to clean up. Good loud beep when the coffee is done, too. Heat plate has temperature settings which is very nice! Not too large, so it doesn't take up much counter space. Glad I chose this coffee maker.

    • simple product design in more valuable to me as a consumer than so many other features - the opening for the reservoir was much too tiny - first thing in the morning - or under dark counters - a large opening to pour water into is more important than all the other details!

    • Finally, a decent cup of coffee

      It's hard to make a good, hot cup of coffee and although I've yet to find a way to consistently make one, this machine does often provide a good hot tasting pot. Heat is a key element which this does provide.

    • Perfect every time!!!

      I purchased this coffee pot mainly because of the 12 cup capacity and the black exterior. I have not been disappointed. It brews a perfect cup of coffee. The machine is a little noisy when brewing, but in the general noise of our kitchen it is hardly bothersome. It would be nice if the water level were easier to see, as sometimes I will brew into what is already in the pot and it is a little hard to see inside the measurement area if you are short. However, if you start new pots all the time and just use the carafe to fill the water compartment, you will have no problem at all. The black exterior is just perfect and stays nice and clean which was one of my wishes when I purchased it. It looks fantastic on my black granite countertops. I would definitely purchase this item again without any reservation!!!

    • Nice Coffeemaker

      Being that I have little experience with coffeemakers, I'll give a neophyte review. It's pretty easy to use in basic mode, and I really like that it has 4 different hot plate settings so that you don't burn your coffee after it's been brewed.

      The only issues that I've run into so far is that it's a little hard to pour the water in, and it's a pain to clean out grounds, there are lots of little crevices for grounds to sneak in.
