It is both attractive to the eye with its brushed metal cover and is easy to use with its ergonomic handle that facilitates effective non-drip pouring. Its glass decanter holds 12 cups with a flip-back cover that enhances comfortable fill-up. The reservoir is marked to depict different levels for the cups desired (2 to 12 cups). It is installed with a showerhead that ensures the coffee is distributed evenly in the water as well as curbs heat loss.

The quality heating plate resists scratch and has black nonstick coating. Tap water normally has impurities like calcium and chlorine that make coffee lose its natural flavor. The water may also have unpleasant smells and tastes at times. To counter this, Cuisinart DCC-1200 comes with a water filter that should be changed after 60 uses or 60 days. This is complimented by a filter basket that has a permanent filter or a #4 filter paper which guarantees utmost refinement.

For those who like multitasking, this coffee maker is your best choice. It has an LCD digital clock for automatic functions initiated by the “Function Knob” and “Flip Switch.” The clock has an “Auto On” feature with which you can set the brew starting time and an “Auto Off” with which you can preset turn off time. The turn off time must be within 0 to 4 hours. There is also a “Brew Pause” feature that enables you to halt coffee flow when you need to have your cup of coffee mid-brewing.

You have 30 seconds to pour your coffee into a cup. After you finish brewing, ensure that you stir thoroughly before serving. This is because the coffee brewed at start has a distinct flavor than that brewed at the end. This only occurs when you pause brewing to have an early cup. Even if you are a little way off, the coffee maker has a “Ready Tone” feature that beeps 5 times to alert you when coffee is made. It is likely to forget to clean your ordinary coffee maker, but not with Cuisinart DCC-1200.

It has a “Clean Setting” feature which reminds you the right time to clean it. The competitive price of this coffee maker surpasses the odds.

But then, the coffee maker comes with a 3-year warrant giving you a reason enough to overlook the few odds. Whether you are busy or just relaxing at home or in the office, in need of a coffee maker that allows you to continue what you are doing as you brew your coffee; or you need a coffee maker that exudes class, that is time saving, dispenses quality coffee and is durable; Cuisinart DCC-1200 Coffee Maker is your ultimate solution now and in future.
