Arrived on time and looks very nice on the counter.And secondly, this is a replacement purchase.Regular daily use, and today Feb 25, 2018, it has destroyed itself.The machine stays on after brewing for an hour by default so your coffee keeps warm for a while after brewing Note: for the best tasting coffee you must grind coffee to Medium-grind.Just died November 2016 — doesn’t push water up into the coffee basket, even after multiple attempts to decalcify/clean.This does not say plastic-free, but it does say BPA-free.I bought this originally about a year before this and th self cleaning would go off and it would stop brewing.Bought the same model a second time, so I could use the same coffee pot and had the exact same problem.The second one came and it started making popping noises on its first use, then the leaking started from the bottom of the machine.That older model fit under our cabinet with the lid up.We give up.But more and more often, it just prematurely ends the brew cycle and sits there until you notice that the red light isn’t on anymore.I also like the #4 cone filter because of its better extraction especially if your not making full pots like I make 1/2 – 3/4 pots most of the time.It is easy to use and to program, but I’m still not used to the blue light it emits always being on; I still wonder if the heating element is on when I see it, and the OCD in me has needed to check it out on several occasions.My old Capresso had a superior carafe, never making me clean up coffee drips after pouring a cup of coffee like this Cuisinart invariably does.I stumbled upon an article identifying this machine as dribble-free and took a chance.First one lasted about six months before the programmable feature stopped working, so we could no longer wake up to a pot of coffee.They both made great coffee.The first three months the unit operated as designed without issue.The new one’s serial number puts it at 2013.

Because I liked it so much, I purchased the same one again.Took 45 minutes to brew one HALF pot of coffee since most of the water from the full pot I put in steamed off, leaked out, or went back into the water tank.I finally became tired enough of getting grounds in my coffee to get a new mid-range coffee pot.There is no faulting the Cuisinart DCC-1200 on that score.It lasted for 12 years before it began to leak and did a great job.There are some problems though such as the wire filter/basket for the grounds has frayed at the bottom and now grounds slip past and get into my coffee.I would give it 3 1/2 stars if I could.My current one is now leaking somewhere and it’s always wet under the unit.It makes mediocre palatable.That my fellow coffee drinkers was 9 years ago of daily use.It matches my red Cuisinart toaster.I like the cone shaped filter basket and especially like how the basket swings out.I needed to replace my much-used Krups.I can’t remember why the first one died early, but the last two just stopped turning on.We recently updated the kitchen, and the stainless model matched the other appliances, and the red one was getting long in tooth after 3 years of daily coffee – it still works, and we’ll keep it as a backup.Despite having an "extra hot" setting and thermal carafe this machine does NOT keep the coffee very hot at all, because the hot plate turns off after brewing.This one, for the $, is well worth it.Worked find the first time ,because i didn’t try to remove anything while it was making the first pot.On one hand I like this Cuisinart coffee makers.Well, after using the Cuisinart, I truly believe it was because of the low water temp.

Although this isn’t a review on k-cups, no matter what flavor I tried or what coffee maker that I bought , it tasted horrible – even after only using filtered water.I’ve read this is the same scenario when Conair aquired Cuisinart.“UsterB” I’d spill all over the counter whether the carafe was full or almost empty.Quite a bit too.I read through the reviews before purchasing this and should have listened to their advice.It has made consistently delicious coffee, and kept it hot.In doing so there was an indication that I had purchased this particular coffeemaker in December 2006..” It’s black plastic on the top and back and a brownish, not attractive brushed stainless on the front and sides.First one lasted me everybit of 8yrs.Since we loved the old one I ordered this new one from Amazon and it arrived in just a few days.! Love this coffee pot! Extremely easy to operate with very basic "old school" switches and knobs.I don’t typically take the time to write reviews, but this machine is so well built and took so much abuse and worked perfectly every single day for over 16 years right up until the day it died, that I just felt I had to say something.No, the lids and water measurement aren’t perfect, but these are nearly insignificant inconveniences that are forgotten after a day or two of learning.I like the fact that it does not have all the programmable bells and whistles as I never use that function.These are negatives:1.Amazon will only take a return for 30 days, and Cuisinart charges shipping fees.The first time it lasted quite a few years, but this time we’ve only had the coffeemaker for three years, and I would not say that we use it heavily.It’s been a workhorse of a full pot almost every day for 10 1/2 years.
