This is a twelve cup programmable coffeemaker with a double-wall reservoir. Features a handy one cup press to serve function. Allows programming up to 24 hours in advance with an easy to read gauge showing how many cups of coffee remain in the removable reservoir. Comes with a fairly standard three year warranty. Finish is stainless steel, has a built in water filter, has a timer, and the unit weighs approximately ten pounds. Unit measurements are height of 14 1/2", length of 8 1/2", and a depth of 9".
This unit is a coffee on demand machine that can dispense up to twelve cups of coffee without the use of a carafe. This is and easy to use and elegantly designed coffeemaker with contemporary styling.
Customer reviews are overwhelmingly positive. One of the positive reviews talked about the Cuisinart 1200 and how this unit allowed the coffee to remain hot about 30 minutes longer without that bitter burnt taste. Another positive review stated how reliable and easy to clean the Cuisinart DCC-2000 coffeemaker was. Both the plastic tank and the brew basket are removable to allow for easy cleaning.
Some of the negative reviews talked about how the unit didn't have a carafe and that you had to pour water into the reservoir. I would suggest that these purchasers should have bought a unit with a carafe. One of the advantages of a carafe less unit is that you don't have to worry about spilling coffee while pouring. You just put your cup under the dispenser and fill your cup. Just like at your favorite convenience store.
Summary In summary the biggest positives were that you could keep the coffee hot for up to 2 hours or much longer (depending on the review) and still have a brew that didn't have that bitter burnt taste. The biggest negative was the need to pour water into the reservoir and that this resulted in spilling. Overall about 65% of the reviews were very favorable with the rest being average to bad.
