Cuisinart Brew Central DCC-1200

Recently I needed to purchase a new coffee maker, and upon the referrals of several friends, I choose the Cuisinart Brew Central DCC-1200. While the price was a bit more than I have paid in the past for a coffee maker, having heard a lot of good about the Cuisinart brand, I went ahead and paid the $80.

This machine is an automatic drip machine that I have now owned for about four months. It comes with a variety of great features, which I really appreciate. The programmable timer is definitely a bonus and I love that the hot plate has three different settings that you can use. Since I often like to grab a cup of coffee during the day, the small batch setting makes it perfect for my needs when I only want to brew a cup or two.

Of course, the coffee that the Cuisinart Brew Central DCC-1200 offers is another thing I really love about this product. Every time I make coffee, it turns out wonderfully. Although I am thrilled with this machine, there are a couple of cons. One problem is that there is no water level window on the water reservoir to allow you to see how much water you have added. While it's not a big problem, the clock doesn't have a backlight, which means you cannot see the clock at night.

Overall, this coffee maker is one I enjoy using. It fits my needs and I'd not only recommend it to a friend, but I'd buy it again. The three year warranty offered is great too, which is longer than the warranties most coffee makers have to offer.
