Love this coffeemaker. It was very hard to find a 12 cup thermal coffeemaker, but I am not dissapointed. Makes a great coffee, and keeps it hot for several hours.

I am very pleased with this coffee maker. It makes great coffee and it was kept hot overnight! I was pleasantly surprised Coffee brewed quickly and I really like the beeper that goes off to notify you that the process is done. The timer worked very well. The only thing is the clock is very hard to see. Would be better if it would light up. But, overall it is an excellent product.

We did significant research to...
Strengths: Easy operation, Timer brew, Carafe retains heat very well, Good looking, 1000 Watt High temp brew
Weakness: The reservoir fill gauge faces the side of the unit, so you can't see it from the front.
We did significant research to find the best coffee maker for the money, and were pretty sure that we were successful with this one. It is a 1000 watt unit which brews at the appropriate temperature for a good cup of coffee. The carafe has a patented lid which allows you to brew and pour without ever removing the lid and letting any heat escape. The coffee is literally still warm over twelve hours after we brew. Highly rcommended.

We just love it. It makes 12 cups...
Strengths: Coffee always hot, Large capacity.
Weakness: Very large coffee maker. Expensive.
We just love it. It makes 12 cups of coffee in less than 15 minutes, beeps for 10 seconds when done and turns itself off.
My wife just loves the fact than 3-5 hours after the coffee is made, the thermal carafe has kept it hot, and without the burnt taste of re-heated coffee.
Uses a standard size 4 cone filter, so you can get your own permanent filter for it.

A Few Caveats
This coffeemaker brews a good cup of coffee and the thermal caraffe is the true reason we wanted one but we had failed to notice that it is about 6" taller than all of our previous makers and made the assumption that the LCD readout would be large enough and backlit enough to read the am/pm and auto brew indicators. However, the size of the LCD font and nonlit screen makes it necessary to put on glasses, pull the maker closer, bend down to the LCD level, then fiddle with the kitchen lighting to prevent glares...and we finally had to resort to keeping a magnifying glass near the maker to confirm whether the programmable auto brew is correctly set to am or pm and whether the "auto" on lcd readout is actually showing in the upper rt corner which is a lot of darn trouble to go thru on a daily or twice daily basis. The clock numbers are mostly readable size but the pm is readable whether it is pm or not...it is just a hair darker if it is truly set for pm...reminds us of the first lcd cheapo watches back in 1980 or so. Also, the top doesn't fit snuggly over the water reservoir which allows some steam to escape upwards towards our undercounter lighting fixtures and the wooden cabinets above so we are not convinced that having the thermal caraffe justifies either the cost of this model, the rearranging made necessary or the sudden need to use a magnifying glass for persons who don't usually need any glasses at all.

THE BEST CARAFE EVER!
I BOUGHT THIS COFFEE MAKER FOR OUR VACATION HOUSE AND ARE THRILLED WITH THE CARAFE. WE CAN MAKE A POT OF COFFEE IN THE MORNING, TAKE IT TO THE BEACH AND HAVE HOT COFFEE AT 4 P.M. THIS IS THE BEST POT WE HAVE EVER HAD IN OVER 40 YEARS OF MARRIAGE!! I AM BUYING TWO MORE, ONE FOR GIFT AND ONE FOR PRIMARY RESIDENCE!

I have only owned it a week but so far so good. Have had no issues with the machine. The coffee stays hot for hours. I am in the US Army and go to work at 0430 every day and make a pot before I go, it stays hot long into the afternoon so when my wife wakes she can have a hot cup unlike the auto turn off models. Only bad thing is the price, but as I say you get what you pay for.

Had it a month & still love this coffee pot!
After researching coffee pots, actually trying to find a stainless steel carafe that my husband I wouldn't break. I found this one. Reading so many conflicting reviews I wasn't sure I had purchased a winner. Well, it is! It brews just fine and it keeps the coffee amazingly hot. A few tips...you do need to make sure the lid is screwed on carefully and correctly. I rinse out the lid and filter basket each time. There are little plastic balls in it and you don't want them getting clogged. The only thing I would like improved it the pouring rate. It could pour with a bit more power. I solve this by unscrewing the lid, if I'm a bit impatient. Love this coffee pot! Definitely recommend especially if you break carafes as much as we did!

Cuisinart 12 cup programmable coffee maker
We are very selective about our coffe and have been searching for the perfect coffee maker. After purchasing a few different brands with unsatisfactory results I started researching through Consumer Reports and asking family and friends their opinions. My daughter always seemed to brew the perfect cup of coffee and I realized that her Cuisinart was exactly what I was looking for. I've had mine for 2 weeks and can honestly say it is perfect. The thermal caraff keeps each brew fresh tasting and hot throughout the day keeping waste at "0". Once the coffee has brewed the machine shuts off automatically leaving less to worry about. Clean up is a breeze and all the controls are easy to use. I would recommend this product highly.

stay's hot for a long time
This Is the greatest coffee maker I have ever owned . It has a timer that will shut the coffee maker off when done and It'll keep the coffee hot for hours In the thermos like carafe . I accidentally set the timer for 4:00 am .I was scheduled to to get up at 7:00 am .I was surprised to see the coffee was still hot .The coffee maker doesn't stay on for hours cooking the coffee .It stays hot In the Thermos like carafe . For me It's worth the money and It savers energy .

Great Coffee Maker

Nice hot coffee
Nice coffee maker. Coffee is much hotter out of the carafe than others of this type that I have had. Keeps it hot longer, too. The "cup" size is also a true cup, unlike some that make 6 oz. cups and claim 12 cup capacity.

I bought this coffee maker to replace my old Black & Decker. After reading all the great reviews for this machine, I decided to go ahead and spend more on this one. I hated it! The brew pause feature did not work. Even after the completed brew cycle tone sounds, the coffee maker continues to drip if you remove the carafe. While the coffee was piping hot, it was almost too hot. It made a really bitter cup of coffee. I tried different brands of coffee, and adjusted the measurements, but it was still awful. Now I wish I hadn't gotten rid of the old one :( !

By Mompp on Home Depot - Jan 6, 2009
I did not think I could replace my glass lined Krups, but I did and this one is even better. I have had it for 3 months and it has worked great, the best part is that the coffee stays really hot for hours.

Cuisinart Programmable 12-cup coffeemaker
This is, without doubt, the best coffeemaker we have had in many, many years. It was easy to setup and to program and makes the best tasting coffee. The unit is of sturdy construction and just feels like quality. We couldn't be happier.

Progamable Automatic Brew & Serve Coffeemaker
I bought this for a gift for my husband and we are both very pleased. We especially like the feature of the beeping when the coffee is done brewing and find that the coffee stays hot for a long period of time. They only thing that I don't care for about this product is the inability to clean inside the carafe better.
By slymax on Home Depot - Jan 25, 2008
I don't take the time to write reviewes but this is a great product it makes the best coffee and keeps it hot for 8 to 12 hours. I'm going to buy one more for my camper.

Brew & Serve Thermal 12-Cup Stainless-Steel Coffee
This Coffee Maker is Great, Looks Sharp, Made Well, Easy to Maintain, The Stainless Steel Pot Keeps Coffee Hot For Hours Longer Than Glass Pots do. and There is No Burner Under The Pot, Wasting Electricity. The Pot is Sturdy Not Like Glass ones That Tend to Break and The Lid Screws On and Lines Up Perfect To The Spout Every Time. I Highly Recomend This Coffee Maker Too All.

This is a great coffee maker... however, you need to be careful that the cover is on correctly or spillage will occur during the brew cycle.

Cuisinart Thermal is really great!!!
Having tried a lot of coffepots over the years this is the best one yet. Very well made, great design. The carafe keeps the coffee nice and hot, without the old stale taste that comes from traditional coffepots that sit on a burner all day.
