Rated 3 out of 5 by Coffee lover Hoping 3rd time lucky
This is the 3rd Cuisinart coffee maker I have bought in the last 5 years....all the same make and model #. I like that it brews quickly, produces good coffee and keeps it hot. Unfortunately paying over a $100 very 1 1/2 to 2 years to replace a dead coffee maker not suggest good value for money. Repair is not available that I know of in my area! So this will be the last Cuisinart coffee maker I will be buying....unless this 3rd one can go the distance.
Love the coffeemaker when it works........but very disappointed with the apparent poor quality from a company that has what I thought was reputed to produce good quality products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Modan We've had this coffee maker for 7+ years and brewed a couple thousand pots of coffee with it. Over the past few months the auto-off feature stopped working (can't start brewing while the dial is on auto-off) and the self clean light started coming on (followed instructions to clean but the light returned after a few days). Looks like it's on the way out and I'm worried about accidentally leaving it on now that auto-off isn't functioning. We're so happy with our experience with this coffee maker that I'm deciding between purchasing the exact same model again or a very similar Cuisinart model. Great coffee maker.

Rated 5 out of 5 by WAshopper my go-to coffee brewer
I am a big coffee drinker. I make an average of 8 half pots each day, so I put the Brew Central to the test! With that amount of coffee, the Brew Central tends to wear out after a few years. I have replaced this model every three years, approximately, but always come back to the same model because it works well and is a good value. It's easy to clean and the taste quality continues to be top-notch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Becky Great coffee maker!
We've had this coffee maker for approximate 10 years. We've had a good many cups of hot, delicious coffee from it. Sadly, after a few days of quirky behaviour, today it died. We know so many people that have had this coffee maker for years as well. I would definitely recommend it.

I had nothing but great results with this coffeemaker and after years of dependable service, am replacing it with the same model. Plus features are the water filter and the adjustable heat on the plate.

Rated 1 out of 5 by tommy Ya, this is not a quality product.
Bought the DCC 1200 a year ago, feed hoses didnt handle the heat. It looks good but its not made well. Dont buy this model, it is not of good quality materials or design.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Minnie8 DURABILITY BAD...LASTED 3 MONTHS BEFORE DYING
I got on the waiting list when I first saw a Cuisinart square coffee pot. I bought it and loved it. Coffee was hot hot hot and quality was superb with easy clean. Years later, it was looking a little worse for the wear when I remodeled my kitchen, so I went out and bought the EXACT Cuisinart pot that looked new and shiny. Well guess what--that lasted 3 months at most before totally dying. I went out to the garage and hauled in the old one, scrubbed it up and tried to reclaim it. No soap! By that time in a dusty garage, it was dead too which I expected. So now it's between Christmas and New Year's and I'm off to hunt for a new coffee pot. (Like I haven't done enough Christmas shopping already!!!) A French Presspot has saved us the past few days, but we truly need a good coffeemaker at a medium price (at or under the 'one' mark!) It's not going to be a Cuisinart this time, unfortunately. :-(
