Welcome to this review of the Cuisinart DCC-1200 coffee maker. Over the course of the next few paragraphs I want to inform the reader of the key issues with this machine and hopefully allow you to make a more confident informed decision when it comes to buying your next coffee maker.

Let's start with what is really one of the key features of this machine; the carafe. This is definitely one of the better glass carafes available; it's of a solid construction, with a good pour rate that doesn't cause any side drips even when the carafe is full to the top. The pour rate is probably one of the biggest reason to consider a glass carafe over the more recent thermal carafe. While these thermal carafes might provide a slightly better system for keeping your coffee hot, they cost more money and almost invariably have a tediously slow pour rate.

The filter basket is excellent and fits beautifully into the machine, it isn't a swinging carafe like some others and this helps to prevent misalignment between the water flow and the filter. The timer and clock is very easy to setup, and the ease of use is so that you won't be running back to the user manual every 5 minutes.

A small gripe with the Cuisinart DCC-1200 might be the opening on the water reservoir is a little on the small side and is located the rear right of the machine and so means that it is slightly awkward when filling the tank if you are left handed. It would also be a bit of a challenge if you are left handed and or elderly.

Thanks very much for reading, I hope you are a little bit closer to making your decision whether this is the best coffee maker for you or not.
