This coffee maker is on the Amazon Best seller list because it has some distinct easy to use features that makes coffee making and cleaning trouble free.


Cuisinart have released there best selling model. Finished in Stainless steel or Black packed with many features to accommodate the end user whether it’s a single household or large family. First up the Cuisinart DCC-1200 has a 1-4 cup feature for small brewing or couples.

If you are out picking up the kids from school and you get back at 3.30pm you can actually program the coffee maker to make you coffee at that particular time everyday using the smart program function built in the DCC-1200. Once you get home with the kids the coffee maker has already brewed your coffee. If your late from getting home it’s ok too. The Cuisinart DCC-1200 has got you covered. You can even set the machine to keep the coffee warm up to 4 hours before it will shut itself off automatically.

It comes with a charcoal water filter to remove any distaste or unpleasant tastes from the calcium build up over time. This is easily accessible by lifting the top where you place the water in.

The Gold Tone Cone style reusable holder houses the coffee when brewing. This again can be easily accessed from the top of the lid and washes. If you don’t want to use Gold Tone Cone holder you can use paper filters it just means you’ll have more sediment in the bottom when using paper filters. Both these refills can be bought from Amazon along with the charcoal water filters so you will never run out of supplies.

Probably the coolest feature is the self clean fuction which allows it to clean itself by pressing just one button. A red light will actually come on telling you the coffee machine needs cleaning. Pretty Cool. Obviously you need to fill it with cleanser but we recommend you fill it with 1/3 white vinegar and rest with cold water. Then the machinegoes through a process that decalcifies  the coffee maker.

We highly recommend the Cuisinart DCC-1200 coffee maker which can be purchased on Amazon. It has over 1,800 reviews from happy customers and priced under $66, including Free Shipping (within Continental USA) from the time of this review you can’t go wrong.
