In a world where one-cup brewers are all the rage – it’s sometimes difficult to find an “good old-fashioned” carafe style coffee maker that will let you make a whole pot of coffee without the going big-brand, big-price tag route. The Cuisinart DCC-1200 Brew Central Programmable 12-Cup Coffeemaker gives you all the features of a one-cup brewer without the often overwhelming fanciness and expense of a one-cup-brewing system.
The Cuisinart DCC-1200 Brew Central Programmable 12-Cup Coffeemaker comes with a 12-Cup capacity carafe that enables you to brew an entire pot of coffee. There’s also an audible beep that lets you know when the coffee brewing process is complete. The carafe itself has a drip free spout to avoid the pesky spills that often come from coffee makers.
This model also boasts a keep-warm feature. This is particularly good if you brew coffee ahead of time, or if you find yourself busy after you brew a pot. You won’t have to settle for a nearly cold or microwaved cup of coffee.
You can get the Cuisinart DCC-1200 Brew Central Programmable 12-Cup Coffeemaker in a brushed metal or red color. In addition you can purchase replacement carafes, reusable filter cup, and a number of other accessories if you need to.
The model comes with an energy saving and safety auto-off feature that will automatically shut off the coffee maker after non-use. No more worrying if you left the coffee pot on.
Perhaps the best feature of the Cuisinart DCC-1200 Brew Central Programmable 12-Cup Coffeemaker is that it is fully programmable. That extra few-minute wait in the morning to brew your first cup of coffee is valuable. With this model, you can pre-set the brew time the night before so that you can wake up to the familiar aroma of brewing coffee. Also worth mentioning is that there is a pause-brew feature that enables you to pour a cup of coffee in the middle of a brew session as soon as there’s a cup of coffee available. Need to warm up your cup before the whole pot is brewed? There’s a pause feature for that!
Equally as great is the 1 to 4-cup brew feature. This way if you do find yourself only needing one cup, you can just brew as much as you need and not have to make 6+ cups. All of the convenience of a one-cup brewing system with the ability to make more if needed.
The price tag on this Cuisinart coffee maker is just as impressive as its numerous features. Most comparable brand-name one-cup brewers with carafe capacity will cost you $200+ dollars. You can expect to pay just around $89.99 at the majority of retailers.
If you’re looking for a reliable, affordable, larger capacity coffee brewer with the freedom to brew one-cup if desired, then the Cuisinart DCC-1200 Brew Central 12-Cup Programmable Coffeemaker is going to be the choice to go with. You won’t have to drop a lot of money, and you’ll still get a the quality and convenience that every java-drinker looks for in a coffee maker.
