This review is from: Cuisinart DCC-1200W White Brew Central 12-Cup Programmable Coffeemaker
Love my coffeemaker. I've had it for several years. Programmable, auto-shutoff, you can also select between 3 different warming plate temperatures. I keep mine on the lowest setting which keeps it plenty hot but still easily drinkable. It also has a self clean function. I haven't had to use that though since I use filtered water (no minerals) only. I love the toggle switch used to turn it on or off (for both the manual and programmable modes). It also has a charcoal filter pad to clean your water to improve the taste. I have removed that though since I do use filtered water. You can use the #4 paper cones or no filter at all since the cone "basket" is very finely meshed and no grounds will get through. I have read that not using a filter will increase your coffee flavor since the natural oils of the coffee bean are not filtered by the paper. I have opted so far to use the paper filter cones (have found a bamboo paper cone at P----x grocery store....on sale too!!). The manual is downloadable to keep on your pc which is handy since you may misplace the paper manual and may also forget how to program the coffeemaker. All in all I'm extremely happy with it and highly recommend it.
None so far....going at least 3 years strong!!!
