I regret buying a refurbished coffeemaker! I had coffee made by this model and thought the coffee was quite good. I didn't read in the fine print that this was a refurbished model. The coffee came out luke warm and we had to heat it up in our microwave. We couldn't get the temperature corrected through the customer service line. I returned it and will buy the same model but will not take a chance on a refurbished one again!
This was an early gift from my mom for Christmas. I read the reviews on every machine imaginable and picked this one based on that and I just liked the look of it. This machine has far surpassed my expectations. For one it is beautiful sitting on my counter top, but it also makes an excellent cup of coffee. Besides that its also very easy to use. We set it at night and wake up to a nice "hot" cup of coffee. I would recommend this machine to everyone!
This coffee pot is constantly overflowing and making a huge mess all over the counter top. I would not recommend this product. You have to watch it very closely as it is brewing to ensure that it is not going to make a mess. With this overflow problem, the autostart settings are worthless since you have to make sure you are right there incase it overflows. I like my coffee ready when I get up and this is too unreliable and messy for that. The last thing I want to do first thing in the morning is clean the kitchen counters and floor because this is so tempermental. GRRR!!
I read a lot of reviews online about the Cuisinart DCC-1200 Coffee Maker and all of them said it was the best one out there in its price range. I was so happy to find it here for almost 50% less than you find it in stores. It has a setting for four cups and under, which is great for a single person like me that doesn't always want to make a large amount. The coffee is delicious, I had a party recently and everyone was complimenting it. This was a refurbished model so it didn't come with the gold tone filter which I picked up for around $10. Even with putting out a little more for the filter it's still a great deal. It's worth it to pick up the gold tone filter because it makes the coffee taste better plus you're not throwing away a paper one every day. I read a few minor complaints in reviews that it doesn't have a water level indicator and that the water tank is too close to where you add the coffee. Well, the carafe is really easy to pour from with no drips and if you just add the coffee after you add the water then it doesn't matter if you make a mistake. You really don't need the water level indicator if you just measure the amount you want with the carafe. Neither of these complaints really bother me. I have all white appliances in my kitchen but this also comes in black. It looks cool and modern and it's great to have the coffee already made when you wake up in the morning. Seriously, this is a great deal.
Mine arrived in pristine condition, no dings or dents. Packed well and all parts were included. This one is white with stainless and matches my kitchen. Very easy to program. I love the caraffe lid as it does not flip open while pouring the water. The adjustable warming plate is GREAT and it brews one heck of a hot cup of coffee. Shipping was tremendous arrived in 3 days. Overstock, you ROCK!
I have been using this coffee maker for a couple months now, and could not be happier with my purchase. It is so great to set a timer to start brewing the next morning, and I can hear the five quick beeps that let me know it's done brewing from the other room. I also love that there is the auto shut off feature, which you can also program for different lengths of time. I went from a french press to this, and I have to say the coffee tastes great! I would recommend this to anyone, especially for such an unbelievable price!
I have finally found a Coffee Maker that makes excellent coffee! It alarms and tells me when it is done brewing also, love that. I have tried many many coffee makers and this one tops my list. It also has water filter system that makes my coffee taste so delicious.
This is a great value. It looks as good as new and makes great coffee. Just a couple of small things: the lid is a pain, it is not hinged and it's sometimes difficult to get back on the pot, particularly for someone with arthritic hands; there is no way to tell how much water is in the machine so you have to use the pot which is really annoying when using bottled water. Apart from those little niggles this is a really good buy.
i bought the remanufactured version. i sent the first one back to Overstock because the coffee maker did not sit flat on the counter... rocked a little as if it was missing one of the rubber pads but they are all in place. Overstock handled the return efficiently and with no fuss. i received a replacement and it too did not sit flat but i kept it anyway as i needed coffee. other than that, the coffee maker is fine.
I was looking for a replacement coffee maker with all the features of my old one, plus have a stainless/white exterior. I am happy with the adjustable brewing capabilities and the easy to understand programming features. Only detractors: Had to buy a permanent filter (was not clearly indicated as not included in the specs for this item) and I wish it had a front-view water level indicator. I have to pull the machine forward, lift the top and bend over to peer into the back reservoir to check water levels. Otherwise it makes a great cup of coffee and I love that it matches my other appliances.
