    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I've had my coffee machine for about 15 years and I've had absolutely no issues with it. I clean it regularly and use bottled water when making my coffee. I really like my coffee maker!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Coffee Maker We bought this coffee maker over 11 years ago, have made thousands of pots of coffee, sometimes 2 or 3 in same evening. We've have never had a minutes' trouble with it. It has just started leaking a bit from the bottom, looks like some corrosion and rust, so I'm going out this week to buy another. I think after 11 years, I think it's time. We've never had a coffee maker last this long, and still make delicious coffee. I'm hoping the next one is as good!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Is the plastic BPA free? I love the coffeemaker, have had it one year no problems but would like to know if the plastic that touches the heating water, etc. is BPA free? If not, can I refund it for one of your other products that are BPA free? Please advise which auto drip coffee makers are BPA free?

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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 from 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Coffee Maker Off to get a replacement....ours just broke after almost 20 years!!!....the coffee was fast, hot and always great....a bit awkward to fill due to height, but other than that, a great machine for us....Looking at the new machine in the hot red or matte black...

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's worked for 10 years without a hiccup!! This has been part of the family since 2004 and keeps going strong. Speed time to brew and temp is always great. We pass the updated version at Costco all the time but never need to upgrade. Plus seeing the model in certain sitcoms makes us laugh.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Coffee maker with one issue Unit is about ten years old but in the last few days it takes much longer to brew and makes a gurgling noise. Have used the clean cycle but doesn't solve the problem. Any advice?

    I just purchased (less then 2 months ago) the cuisinart brew central dcc-1200c and this morning when I turned it on nothing happened. Needless to say I almost cried- because my morning coffee means the world to me!! Any ideas why this may be happening? 

    Asked by: BecFer
    Hi BecFer. If the power does come on, please try to descale the machine with a vinegar solution. Or email us for more tips regarding your coffeemaker. Best Regards, CSR

    My DCC-1200 has started leaking from the base. I expected that I may be able to find out where the leak is by opening the base and checking it out. To my dismay you have used a socket hex security screw! Why? I don't have the security bit required.

    Asked by: ARRGH
    Hi ARRGH, We have designed the base of the coffeemaker like this for safety reasons. Please call out customer care number (1-800-472-7606) for further assistance with your problem! Best Regards, CSR

    Hello, when I brew 12 cups of coffee I find that 3.5 cups of water remain in the filter, after the beep no further coffee streams. I have to press the nozzle where the coffee streams up to release the rest of the coffee into the carafe.

     My coffee maker inexplicably shuts down in the middle of a brew cycle with the settings returning to default requiring me to switch the coffee maker back on to get the red light on to continue brewing.

    Hello Dougie, sorry to hear about that, please contact our technical team at 1-800-472-7606 ext 4713 where we can further assist you. Regards
