3 out of 5 eggsLasted about 18 months

Pros: It makes a good pot of coffee relatively quickly. I like the programmability. It's fairly intuitive and easy to program. I like the feature of telling when it needs to be descaled. We have hard water, and that's a useful bonus that I haven't seen on any other coffeemakers.

Cons: The warmer plate has stopped working after about 18 months. Now the coffee is lukewarm within a half an hour or so after brewing. It's still under warranty, but I'll have the expense and hassle of sending it to Cuisinart for repair.

Other Thoughts: This is my second second Cuisinart coffee maker. The first one was a similar model, but older. It lasted about 4 years before it stopped working. I may consider the insulated pot verson the next time.

4 out of 5 eggslasted right up to the warrenty

Pros: works great, i like the auto turn off and the ability to set the warmer plate.

Cons: charcoal filter seems silly. not sure it did much ( i did buy about 8 of them before i stopped). as of this week it turns itself off after it starts to brew. you don't notice till you comeback for your eye opener and it hadn't finished. bummer. i bought it here 3 years and a few weeks ago. three year warranty oh well.....

Other Thoughts: I wish ii had put the extended warranty on it.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Machine

Pros: Lots of usable functions. Auto-On, Auto Shutoff, High-Medium-Low temp settings. Charcoal Filter, reusable filter basket, 1-4 cup feature which ensures coffee is at right temperature. Toggle switch for On/Off makes it easy to know the switch was hit. Clean unit function with indicator to let user know it needs to be cleaned. 12 cup carafe.

Really brews a great cup of coffee, doesn't make it too hot or luke warm.

Cons: Heavy condensation build up can cause drips on to hot plate when removing carafe to pour a cup o joe.. Cleaning of filter basket can be a bummer if unit not used daily. Easy to overcome that obstacle if you use paper filter option.

Other Thoughts: Really my cons are on the weak side and only a minor inconvenience. Would not cause me to shop a different brand next time.

I have seen many reviews of this unit with people complaining of the lid warping because of steam produced during brewing. But that is easily overcome by raising lid upon completion of brewing so it vents steam off. I have done this since day one, April of 2013, and my lid fits perfectly.

The charcoal filter is a great bonus as the water in my area is not the greatest. I do notice a huge difference when not using the charcoal filter as well. More of an after taste without it.

5 out of 5 eggsCoffee!

Pros: Makes coffee good.

Cons: Doesn't turn into a robot.

Other Thoughts: For $90? Eh okay. Any higher and I think I'd get offended.

But lots of great features that I barely use.

Not sure I like the retro knob... I'm mildly afraid I'm going to break it. ... And it just seems terribly out of place. Was cuisinart designing a retro airplane or a coffee maker?

3 out of 5 eggsworks, not hot enough, hard to read water level

Pros: Easy to use, easy to clean, as advertised.

Cons: The water dripping into the coffee filter is simply NOT hot enough. The hot plate does a decent job in heating the coffee AFTER it is brewed, however, the optimal temperature to actually brew the coffee is 195-210F.

The water level marker is actually INSIDE the coffee machine which makes it hard to see how much water you are adding. This becomes a problem when you make under 4 cups of coffee as the carafe labels anything above the 4 cup mark.

1 out of 5 eggsDead after 24 months

Pros: While it worked, it made fine coffee in a reasonable amount of time.

Cons: After about a year, brewing time slowed down considerably. What used to take 5 minutes to brew 4 cups, become closer to 15-20. At two years to the date and nearly 1/2 brew times, it finally stopped all together and water starting to pour out the bottom when the reservoir was filled. I cleaned this coffee maker once per month using Brew Rite which had worked very well for me for years. Regardless of how well I took care of it and followed the mfr cleaning schedule, it still only made it 24 months. After reading the other posts on customers with the same problem having to pay almost $25 to return and have replaced, I'm deciding to cut my losses with this company and this product and move on to another mfr. I bought this largely based on the Cuisinart name but like so many mfrs these days, quality has gone out the window, along with customer service. Two year life span for a $75 coffee maker is simply unacceptable and will now cost Cuisinart a customer for life and an immeasurable amount of bad press from me letting everyone I know who is considering a coffee maker to avoid anything made by Cuisinart.

3 out of 5 eggsTimer Display absolutely useless

Pros: Decent quality.
Has temperature sensor on carefe heater, NICE. Will not burn coffee. Three levels of heat.
Cone filter system.
"Start" switch is a retro toggle...i like that.

Cons: Digital display absolutely useless. It is way way too small, and not backlit. Don't buy this if you want to use a timer.
Coffee is ok. Not bad, not good. "Dial" switches feel really cheap.

Other Thoughts: List price is a RIP. It is an ok coffeemaker. Not really worth the asking price. But the sensor on the heating pad is NICE. Even after leaving it on for an hour coffee does not really deteriorate in taste. No burned tasted.

4 out of 5 eggsSolid CoffeeMaker

Pros: Great so far.. bought it as a present for my home to replace current Makita brand. Just wanted to try something newer with a few more features. I like the look of the maker, and it brews a fine cup of coffee (to be honest, I can't tell the difference in taste from prior maker). Coffee comes out hot, its easy to program, and the filter feature is cool. I like the variable setting on the unit for heating element temperature. 5 beeps when the coffee is done. Nice.

Cons: Detecting how much water you've entered is a pain using the markings on the inside of the water reservoir... an absolute PAIN.. I like to use my water spout and enter water until I know I have what I want. You can barely see when the water has passed by the number marking you want. The markings look like little DICE inside the reservoir. They need to fix this... Anyway, you can just pour your needed water in caraffe FIRST then pour and you'll be fine, OR measure using measuring glass (8oz="2" ) No biggie, however.. because of other methods I can use.

Other Thoughts: Great coffeemaker.. I like the shiny look on the Stainless Steel color that I bought. We have great tap water here so the water filter idea, while cool, is not relevant for me.

5 out of 5 eggsCuisinart DCC-1200

Pros: We have had our unit about 12 years and it is working fine! We now have 2 residences and I was looking for another unit for our 2nd home and I am very surprised at the negatives about this unit. I would only buy a Cuisinart coffee maker!

Cons: Has a glass serving container and would prefer a metal unit to protect against breaking it.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Makes good coffee. (While it is working)

Cons: I have had three of these coffee makes. Same model DCC 1200 they last about 1 to 2 years and then stop working. Cuisinart is horrible to deal with after the one year mark. There are many better brands out there. stay clear of this one.
