This review is from: Cuisinart DCC-1200FR Chrome Brew Central 12-Cup Programmable Coffeemaker
Pros: Programmable, self cleaning, stylish appearance, adjustable carafe temp. & most important, quickly brews an excellent pot of coffee - whether 3 cups or 12
Cons: None. (Another reviewer mentioned trouble with fluid 'drizzling' if the carafe is too full. I've not found that to be an issue PROVIDED the lid is kept in place (it has a hole over the pour spout), and I usually overfill the carafe, brewing 13 cups instead of the recommended 12.
Other Thoughts: I've owned 2 of these. The first lasted about 5 years before the burner gave out, likely due to my own abuse (I wasn't as careful as I should've been; coffee often poured or spilled onto the burner, seeping into the underside - not good). The 'current' one is almost 3 years old. At the time of purchase, a new somewhat 'fancier' model was available but having been very happy with the first, I searched around until I could find another. There is one issue, however: the seal between the glass carafe and it's plastic rim (just below the spout) has recently given way just a tad, allowing a drop or two to seep out - but only when pouring from a completely full pot. I'm sure I can fix it (and it IS worth the effort), but I have yet to do so. Regardless, I highly recommend this item!READ FULL REVIEW
