Rated 1 out of 5 by Calculator Junk - Poor Design & Quality
We have had this model for 2 years. We had to return the original one to Cuisinart under Warranty for replacement after 6 months of use. The 1st one began Leaking Water all over the counter whenever water was added to the tank! The replacement unit lasted a little longer before having the same problem of water leaking all over the counter, plus the hinge on the lid broke a couple months before the water leak started! Cuisinart obviously has a major design defect and/or production quality control problem on this model. The kicker was that we had to pay shipping for the 2 warranty replacements – probably should have just bought a different brand coffee maker after the 1st one broke and avoided the hassle. Sure hope the 2nd replacement unit lasts longer. We’ve Never had another coffee maker leak water! Suggest you buy a different model Cuisinart or a different Brand Name coffee maker. Our other Cuisinart appliances have been excellent so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JayCee Best coffeemaker EVER
We purchased this coffeemaker just under a year ago and have found it to be the best coffeemaker we have ever owned... The very best feature in my opinion is the brew time... you have both the regular brew and the strong brew... It is a tiny bit slower than a regular coffee maker but this is absolutely no problem as the coffee comes out perfect every time. Other features I really liked are the shorter cord (and wrap away).. small batches (1-4 cups).. extended warming plate (2-4 hours)..bell feature for both ready and finished.. water filter (for smoother taste)..it is very easy to clean.. you can actually fit your hand inside to wipe off any stains.. and of course the 14 cups. Unfortunately, it gave up the ghost just short of one year.... and I misplaced my sales receipt (bummer)
You may think this is a rather flattery review, but I felt I had to try to counteract the opinion of the other reviewer for completely failing the machine because of a sprung spring.
If you decide to buy this machine, you will love it...

Rated 1 out of 5 by CowboyYaYa Disappointed in the way it's made
I was so excited about my new Cuisinart Coffee Maker, but unfortunately the excitement did not last. The spring on the water door broke just two weeks after I purchased the coffee maker. It made great coffee but not well made. I took it back and went back to my old coffee maker.

Two year old DCC2800c coffee maker.
Makes good coffee.
Been leaking water for last year on counter.
Lid spring tab just broke, the other one will now not be far away.
Bought because we have numerous Cuisinart kitchen small appliances, and thought this would be good quality, not so.
Will not be sending it back for repair, not worth the shipping costs, will look for another brand, to replace.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Luc G Lid breaks very easily
I bought this coffee maker in Aug 2014. After a few months of use the lid broke. We replaced the unit in Nov 2014. As of Feb 2015, the lid spring is broken again despite the fact we took extra care shutting the lid on the coffee maker.
On a positive side it makes very good coffee.

Rated 1 out of 5 by shopper4454 I do not recommend this product
Have purchased Cuisinart coffee makers in the past and was thoroughly satisfied. This one, however, fell apart after bout a year of use. First the springs in the lid, now a rubber gasket is falling out where the coffee drips down.

We've had this machine for a couple of years. After 6 months the lid spring broke, but, hey, we could live with that. But, now, in the last 2 months it has slowly started leaking when you set up the night before. The last 3 mornings we have a counter covered with water. This morning it had run onto the floor and my 14cup coffee maker only made 9 cups. I mopped up the other 5 cups. Looking for a new coffee maker.........a different brand.
