    • Best non-commercial coffee maker!
      Verified Purchase

      I LOVE LOVE LOVE this coffee maker! This is my 2nd Cuisinart (my other one still works like brand new after 8 years!). However, I wanted to get the best coffee maker I could find with the thermal caraf. It works wonderfully!!! I normally do not like to have more that 2 cups of coffee because it sits on a hot plate and starts to get a sharp or somewhat burned taste. This thermal container literally keeps the coffee warm and fresh ALL DAY!!! Please note that when pour your first cup right after brewing, it will be extremely hot! But, I can go back 12 hours later and have a cup of warm (not hot) coffee that still tastes as fresh as the first cup, just not as hot! I am going to buy one of these for my brother's lake house. The family sits on the screened in porch and has coffee every morning but we're always getting up to get more coffee. With a serving tray, you can take this thermal caraf, your sweetner/creamer, etc out on the porch and freshen our cups there -- until the pot runs out. :O) Then, it's time to brew another and by the way that doesn't take long either. My friends call me a 'coffe snobb'......so i think that anyone would be thrilled with the coffee maker. Yes, it difficult to see the level of water you're pouring in with the guide being on the side, but that is minor compared to how wonderful this appliance is! Thanks to all those who wrote reviews for this product, that is what helped me choose this one.

    • Great Coffee Maker
      Verified Purchase

      After reviewing all the comments on the other Quisinart coffee makers, I chose this product! So far it has been terrific! Does not clog at the top like others! Very good product and I really like the 12 c. capacity. The style fits any decor. I would recommend this product to anyone that is looking for this type of coffee maker. Love the idea you can take the caraff w/you if traveling as the coffee stays very hot! The best coffee brewer I have owned....well worth the price. I checked other places and could not find this exact one, yet the others prices on Quisinarts were way out there.

    • No more burned/over cooked coffee
      Verified Purchase

      What I have finally been waiting in a coffeemaker! This coffeemaker has no heating plate, what it has is a double insulated stainless steel carafe! So if you want to brew a pot of coffee and drink it, fine. You never had burned coffee if you drink it immediately. But if you plan to make a pot of coffee and sip on it everybody knows the taste of coffee that has been boiling for some time.Yuck! That is where this coffeemaker comes into play. It delivers the coffee into the double insulated stainless steel carafe at approximately 185° to 192°. And that is it. As I said there is no boilerplate. With this system of delivering the coffee into a insulated thermos carafe it stays plenty hot. If you plan on sipping your coffee than simply pre-heat the carafe and you will have hot coffee for up to six hours. This is a perfect gift for newlyweds, friends, family. I love mine!

    • Thermo coffee brewer
      Verified Purchase

      I have several Cuisinart products that have lasted a very long time and trust the products. The lid for the coffe brewer is a little tricky, otherwise very easy to use. The last cup of coffe is best served with the lid off or it does not empty. An all steel or other color may be easier to use as the black interior can be hard to discern. All in all a very handsome machine that brews a great cup of coffee and seems to get the most from the grounds.

    • Makes okay coffee, but....
      Verified Purchase

      Okay, at the risk of sounding like a nitpick I just can't rave about this coffee maker. Frame of reference: this was the replacement for a well-loved 10-year-old 10-cup *********** (roughly same price range as the Cuisinart) that was just "getting tired", developing a few small stress cracks/leaks, etc. First and foremost, does this Cuisinart accomplish its task of making decent coffee? Yes. It does. However, I'm no more than "luke warm" on this unit for a number of reasons. If you're the average person who just wants to sling water into a machine and push a button and drink coffee, these reasons probably won't matter much to you. But for the "look, I'm paying around a hundred bucks for a coffee-maker instead of buying a 20-dollar-******* so it better be dang nice" crowd, read on. Here we go: Nitpick #1: There is no "AM" versus "PM" on the time clock. The manual SAYS there's supposed to be, but when setting the time or the intended brew time, the clock just cycles "10:00, 11:00, 12:00, 1:00" but there's no am/pm indicator. This makes it impossible to know if you're setting 10:00am or 10:00pm--making any timed brews useless. THIS WAS THE ENTIRE REASON we bought this coffee-maker--automated morning wakeups with fresh coffee. And we can't use it because of a drop-dead-design-flaw (or, ours is just defective). BIG bummer. Nitpick #2: The carafe. The lid on the carafe is mildly temperamental. We find it VERY easy to accidentally mis-align the lid, so that it's "cross-threaded". It's easy to recognize and correct, but it does mean that about once every 2-3 uses we have to unscrew and re-screw the lid several times to get things aligned. Just an annoying nuisance. Nitpick #3: The fill level indicator. The fill level CANNOT be seen from the front of the coffee maker. This means you must pull out ant TURN the coffee maker 90-degrees left to pour water into it (or, alternately, squeeze your head between the coffee maker and the shelving to its left). REALLY? They couldn't make the fill indicator visible from the front? This is a HUGE downgrade from the removable fill tank the ******* unit had, where we'd just fill it in the sink, snap it in, and click "Brew". Nitpick #4: Pour speed. I'm groggy. It's early morning. I'm moody. I want my first cup of coffee NOW. It's bad enough I couldn't have it waiting for me (See Nitpick #1) but now I'm subjected to a wait..for..it...wait..for...it as this carafe pours incredibly slow. Like, less than 1 oz per second slow. 15 seconds to pour a 15 oz cup of coffee? I've resorted to removing the lid to pour, which solves that problem by just adding steps. Honestly, I would NEVER buy this coffee maker again or recommend it. It just doesn't live up to the "expectation of Cuisinart quality".

    • Great basic coffee maker - Stays Hot for hours!
      Verified Purchase

      Great BASIC coffee maker with stainless steel thermal caraf - stays hot for hours without using a hot plate, coffee always tastes fresh. It's very basic though - you can program a timer on it, but that's it. There's no spring loaded release to access the filter which is a little awkward for opening, but no big deal. This also does not come with a filter screen either, so you will need to buy paper filters or purchase an optional micro screen filter. It is VERY WELL BUILT. Looks nice too.

    • keeps coffee hot for hours without cooking it!!
      Verified Purchase

      I had a KitchenAid 12-cup programmable coffeemaker and absolutely loved it - except it had a glass carafe which required leaving the burner on in order to keep the coffee hot. By the time the last cup was poured, the coffee was often scorched. This coffeemaker is easy to use, has a great auto-on feature, and keeps the coffee hot without the burn. Love it...

    • Good cup of coffee
      Verified Purchase

      I am very pleased with this purchase. I use 24 oz of filtered water and 12oz of coffee every time, and I have a consistently great, hot cup of coffee. There are some dry spots where the water doesn't seem to touch the coffee at all when I do a large 12 cup pot. The lid is not hard to put on, take off, or even use when pouring. The carafe keeps the coffee hot for a long time. I gave it four stars because it does not have a charcoal water filter, it doesn't do small 2 and 4 cup pots, and the top doesn't seem to sit quite right over the filter. Maybe it's to avoid steam building up in the filter? I don't know. It's taller than most coffee machines so you may not be able to use it under a counter. It is simple to use, easy to clean and makes a great cup of hot coffee.

    • I love this coffee maker!
      Verified Purchase

      This is a great coffee maker. It looks great, it makes 12 cups, it has the automatic feature, the thermos pot keeps the coffee fresh and hot for hours, it's easy to clean. The design is slightly taller than the more common boxy Cuisinarts, but because it is narrower, it doesn't seem to take up as much space. I love getting 12 cups of coffee at once for our 3- person household. The coffee is excellent and the automatic feature is a no-brainer. If I set it up the night before, I wake up to fresh hot coffee no matter how much later I get up. A baby- bottle brush cleans the pot quickly. To clean the 'patented' lid, I just swish it through some hot soapy dishwater, then rinse : voila! Kudos to Overstock once again. I found this coffee maker on another site for less but the shipping and handling charges made it only a negligible savings; 'allow 5-10 business days for delivery.' You can always count on Overstock -I received my coffee maker less than 48 hrs. after ordering. Thanks, Overstock!

    • Keeps Coffe Hot
      Verified Purchase

      One of the few 12 cup coffee makers with a SS carafe. Most other are 10 and I really like the extra cups in the morning. I'm not a "super hot" coffee drinker. This is very satisfactory for delivering a normal hot cup of coffee. My wife and I drain the pot within two hours of brewing and have never been tempted to microwave the last cups. My only complaint is that aside from a little indicator in the top of the LED display winnow there is no light to indicate auto brew is on. Also recommend higher quality number 4 filters than the grocery store recycle paper for a better tasting cup of coffee.

      If you need coffee first thing in the am and then drink for an hour, this is your coffee maker. Timer along with the thermal pot were requirements for me. I had to replace my Krups (so sad) and this had good reviews. I'm happy.

    • hot, but not tasty
      Verified Purchase

      Well, brother and sister Overstock fans, I have to respectfully disagree on this item. I was prepared to love it, based on reviews. I found that it made wonderfully hot coffee (good thing) and I was jazzed about the carafe, picturing well-caffeinated Sunday mornings on the porch. My disagreement was in the flavor of the coffee. It was really poor. the Cuisinart just makes coffee too quickly to develop the flavor. We returned it quickly. I'll just have to wait until there's a programmable Thermivorm.
