I have been using this model since around 2001, i think. It has never failed me and works as advertised. I hear there is a newer model. It just plain works great and does not disappoint.
This coffee maker is exactly what i was looking for. It’s easy to use, easy to clean, is quiet, looks nice on the counter and most importantly makes great coffee.
This coffee maker is supposed to be reconditioned but i can’t tell it from a new unit. Here are the specifications for the Amazon Renewed Cuisinart DCC-1200FR Brew Central 12-Cup Coffeemaker:
- Make sure this fits
by entering your model number.
- Retro-style, brushed stainless-steel coffeemaker brews 12 5-ounce cups
- 24-hour clock/timer for wake-up coffee; brew-pause; programmable shut-off
- 1-to-4- or 5-to-12-cup brewing options provide maximum flavor
- Charcoal water filter; decalcification indicator; heat-adjustable warming plate
- Measures 14-1/4 by 8 by 10-3/4 inches
When i finally ditched the old plain coffee maker and tried this one, i could not believe how much better my coffee tasted. I liked it so much, i bought another one for our vacation house.
Great price, but it didn’t include the filter basket which is an extra charge. My previous coffee maker of the same model came with the filter.
Reviews from purchasers :
- GREAT TASTING COFFEE
- After Several Years of Dependable Service, it’s Still Going Strong.
- makes really good tasting coffee
We bought this item after reading it’s the best overall coffeemaker in consumer reports. The only complaints we have is the control setting buttons are somewhat small and hard to read, the digital clock is not illuminated and the water-fill line is not visable from exterior of machine. Otherwise, it lives up to its reputation, makes terrific coffee (much better than our old black & decker), keeps coffee warm for up to 3 hrs and carafe is comfortable to use, easy to clean.
The coffee maker is in new condition and works excellent. Easy to use and great coffee.
Amazon replaced it very quickly and the replacement is very good, no problems at all. . This is our third cuisinart coffee maker and the best one yet. We will probably buy another one. I like the stainless better than the black. Pouring water in, not a problem – use a funnel. I am less than 5′ tall and this works perfect for me. The coffee is very good and we are particular. Our briel espresso machine is in use often. For any drips, put a tray under the machine, works perfect. A great coffeemaker and i like all the little options, especially the 4 cup and under button. We have bought many cuisinart factory reconditioned and never a problem.
I own a couple of the coffee makers and would never consider buying a different one. They are reliable, attractive and brew a smooth, consistant pot of coffee time and time again.
Gifted this to my brother for a housewarming–he specifically asked for this model and since they are no longer made new, i found this refurbished one and went with it.
I have used this coffee pot at others homes and finally got one for myself, love the size the design and it makes great coffee.
Cuisinart real broke the mold with this coffee maker. My wife and i have been using it daily for over five years now and it still performs as well as the first day we used it. One caveat however, was that we removed the charcoal filter and plastic housing. It will grow bacteria on it fairly quickly (being that it’s always damp and in a dark spot). Instead, we just use cold filtered water from the start. If you do that, you don’t need to waste your time with the gross and costly charcoal filters anyway.
Just make sure your item comes with everything it’s supposed to as mine did not have the cuisinart gtf gold tone filter which came with the original brand new one i had bought years ago.
This reconditioned coffeemaker is an excellent value. As i unpacked mine five years ago, i found no signs that it had ever been used before. My guess is that most of these factory-reconditioned units are returned, out-of-the-box, defective items that have never been used.
The coffeemaker is in very good condition, i expected somenthing that i was not going to be able to use. To my surprise the coffemaker was a smart buy. This is the firts time i buy reconditioned items. Com they give the option to return if you are not satisfied.
This works great and is a super value. Heavy duty (at least for the first month of ownership thus far). Hot coffee and good flavor extraction from the bean. It even beeps five times upon completion of the brewing cycle.
I bought this to replace the exact same model that sprung a leak. I didn’t even consider buying a different make or model.
This was my second cuisinart of a similar type. I honestly can’t remember if i purchased this on amazon or elsewhere. The first one had a short good life for 3+ years but eventually the heating element failed. This current one only after 8 months started to now have a power issue where by if you start brewing coffee, it will power off without warning. I realized the power cord coming out the back of the unit was loose going into the maker and if you moved it a little, you can then restart the maker. Oddly, once the coffee has completely brewed, it never has the issue. But this is becoming more and more painful to have to watch your coffee brew so it’s time to change manufacture.
I bought this coffee maker off amazon. Com for my husband and it has seen quite a bit of use since arriving on our door step almost 4 months ago. My only complaint with it (as other people have mentioned) is that the water reservoir is a bit awkward. But please do not let that deter you from purchasing one.I pour the water into the reservoir using the coffee pot and all but about 1 tablespoon of water pours in easily. I just let that 1 tablespoon stay in the pot and mix in with the dripping coffee. If you can live with that you will be very happy with your purchase.
I like all the cuisinart products, especially cuisinart dcc-1200fr brew central 12-cup. Easy to set up, clean and the quality of coffee is good.
