    Cuisinart DCC-450 4-Cup Coffeemaker CONS:

  • Permanent filter not included
  • Cannot see the amount of coffee in carafe due to being stainless steel rather than glass
  • Carafe drips when pouring
  • Hot Plate rusts
  • Coffee lukewarm
  • Cord is short
  • Water chamber is hard to fill
  • Auto shutoff occurs too soon - after 15 or 20 minutes
  • Could use a brighter "on" light
  • Cannot get the last drops of coffee out of the carafe
  • Carafe cover is difficult to remove

    Cuisinart DCC-450 4-Cup Coffeemaker Summary:
    This seems to be one of those coffee makers you love or you hate. A lot of complaints about the carafe dripping and the unit shutting off too soon leaving you with cold coffee. But then a lot of users liked it because it was simple to use, had a durable carafe, made a decent cup of coffee, and was compact and took up little space on the counter. The only universal negative was that it didn't come with a permanent filter. But then for the price you probably wouldn't expect to get one. Even so, you can purchase them separately.
