Lasts only as long as the warranty.

byjoybelle3 Sep 19, 2012
6 Helpfuls 7 Helpfuls Was this review helpful?
Pros Stylish<br>Lots of features
Cons Short life
Recommended it? No

This coffee maker only lasted 14 months. Sure, it made good coffee, I could select the amount of time the plate warmer stayed on, and make as little as one cup or twelve - they all tasted great. It also has a water filter. All good points but I think a coffee maker should last at least two or three... Read full review »

Pros Works good when it works, brewed coffee is good and hot
Cons Poor warranty terms which you pay for replacement.
Recommended it? Yes

After 10 months, the coffee maker failed and would no longer brew coffee.  Tried all the troubleshooting the customer service tech offered.  Finally had to return it and they replaced it with a new unit.  However, the warranty does not come at no cost.  There was a $10 service...

I bought my first Cuisinart DC1200 coffeemaker approximately 1 year ago.  I bought it because it received good reviews in several places on the internet.

Am on my third carafe after a few short months

bychumandbess Mar 28, 2012
4 Helpfuls 5 Helpfuls Was this review helpful?
Pros Coffee is good
Cons The carafes seem to crack from the heat. I have gone thru 2 of them.
Recommended it? No

I have had 2 carafes crack and leak all over. It seems the glass cannot take the heat. I am careful not to jam the carafe in so I know I did not crack it. Has anyone else had this trouble? Very disappointing, especially since replacement carafes run about $25. Read full review »

Cuisinart DCC-1200, Don't buy it! Makes a really bad cup of coffee

Pros None. Features are pretty standard.
Cons This machine makes the worst cup of coffee I have ever had.

Had this machine for a year, it was expensive.  Thought it would be a good purchase after reading consumer guide recommendation; it wasn't.  I never got a good cup of coffee from it.  No matter what grinds you put in, it tastes exactly the same, which is bad with a skwanky after...

Pros Made a fine cuppa' Joe before performing its self-immolation act.

It all started when I jinxed the Mexican-made Black & Decker by praising its longevity less than a week before it ran out of steam. Twelve cups, a dozen years – the numbers ran together like tears at a wedding as I waved goodbye to the recycling guys – new custodians to the shiny-black... Read full review »

We are still in search of a coffee maker that will make the perfect, or nearly perfect cup of coffee.  I love flavored coffees and my husband is hooked on Starbucks lattes.  So, when our Zorishi bit the dust (and Hammacher Schlemmer promptly gave us a full refund), I began the quest again...
