1. Cuisinart DCC-1100BK
If you’re looking for the best value from the brand, this 12-cup model is the one to choose. In spite of its relatively low price, the?Cuisinart DCC-1100BK?is attractive and offers the same basic perks as the more expensive models. It’s programmable, so you can set it to have the coffee ready the minute you wake up or walk into the house. With this machine, you get both a reusable coffee filter to save you the bother and expense of buying paper ones and a water filter to improve the taste of tap water. A light comes on to let you know when the?DCC-1100BK?needs ?cleaning. It’s available in black or white, as well as in a smaller, 10-cup model
Cuisinart DCC-T20 Touchscreen 14-Cup Programmable Coffeemaker
Have to brew a pot for a crowd? The Cuisinart DCC-T20 TouchScreen 14-Cup Programmable is the best coffee maker for the job. It makes more coffee than any other programmable automatic-drip coffee maker in the marketplace. That makes the machine ideal for large households, people who return for cup after cup throughout the morning, or for those entertaining guests. This is a brand- new version of the PerfecTemp with a touchscreen instead of buttons. When you’re not using it, the panel “goes to sleep” giving it a sleek look. If a ding telling you your coffee is ready annoys you (especially before you’ve had your morning Joe), you can turn off the sound. You can control how hot you want your coffee to be as well as how long you want the coffee maker to remain on before it shuts itself off. So, you won’t have to worry about whether the machine’s on when you leave the house. This Cuisinart comes only black.
3. Cuisinart DGB-800 Burr Grind & Brew
f you like to grind the beans right before you brew, consider the?Cuisinart DGB-800 Burr Grind & Brew, which makes this a one-step procedure. This machine has a burr grinder that grinds evenly and then transfers the ground coffee directly into the filter. However, be forewarned that when the grinder goes off in the morning, it’s loud enough to wake up anyone who’s still sleeping, even someone one floor above the kitchen. And occasionally you’ll have to clean the grinder, which is an additional chore. If you want to use preground coffee, you have the option to turn the grinder off. As you would expect from a pricey model, you get a lot of extras, including the ability to control the strength of your coffee and how long the?Burr Grind & Brew?stays on before shutting itself off.
4. Cuisinart DCC-3000 Coffee on Demand
In this unusual brewer, a whole “pot” is brewed at once, but rather than dripping into a carafe, the?Cuisinart DCC-3000 Coffee on Demand
?fills up an internal reservoir. You then dispense just one cup at a time, the way you would from an urn or a soda machine. It’s a great choice if people drift into the kitchen for their morning Joe at various times. As this machine eliminates the need to pour from a carafe, you don’t get those otherwise-inevitable splashes to clean up.
5. Cuisinart SS-15 Maker Coffee Center
The Cuisinart SS-15 Maker Coffee Center is designed to give you flexibility. For those days when you need just a cup at a time, there’s a single-cup brewer that works with K-cups or your own reusable coffee filter. It can also deliver a 12-cup carafe, great for when you’re hosting a weekend brunch or book club meeting. While you are getting two appliances in one, The SS-15 does cost twice as much as and take up more counter space than most single-function brewers.
6. Cuisinart CHW-12 Coffee Plus
If there are both coffee and tea lovers in your house, the Cuisinart CHW-12 Coffee Plus is your machine. In addition to making a pot of coffee, it can dispense hot water for quick cuppas, mugs of cocoa or bowls of instant oatmeal. The CHW-12 has a safety lock to prevent hot water from being accidentally dispensed. On this model, you can up the temperature of the coffee in the carafe, which is a handy feature if you never think your coffee is hot enough. Best Cuisinart Bread Maker
7. Cuisinart CPO-850 Coffee Brewer
This good-looking, stainless-steel brewer is designed to mimic pour-over coffee, which usually requires that you boil water and pour it carefully from a kettle. The?Cuisinart CPO-850,?however, does the work for you. Plus, this brewer is certified to meet the Specialty Coffee Association’s Gold Cup Standard, which means that the machine brews at the optimal temperature and time for the best results. You can adjust the strength of your coffee as well as the serving temperature. However, as is often the case, “the best” comes at a price. This machine costs almost twice as much as other Cuisinart coffee makers.
