So, you have finally decided to invest in a good coffee maker, instead of going to the local cafes to drink the perfect coffee? Well, good for you. We are happy to hear that. But, we are even happier to help you. With all those coffee makers on the market, choosing the right one for your needs may seem like a blood-curdling task. But, relax, we are here to steer you in the right direction. We want to talk about one of the best coffee makers out there. This coffee maker comes from Cuisinart, and as such makes great coffee, is durable and has a modern design. To find out more, stick with us.

Design


This is one well-built coffee maker. Everything on this coffee maker is built to last, making it a worthy investment. It is made from high-quality materials, and as such is sturdy. Some coffee makers feel flimsy, but that’s definitely not the case with this one.

What we love about this unit is that it comes with a permanent filter, so you won’t have to spend more money to buy that. The filter is gold tone, which means that it is durable and of a great quality. The unit also comes with a good quality carafe. You will appreciate the stainless steel handle on the carafe, for increased safety. Thanks to this feature, you won’t burn your hand. However, a slight concern related to the carafe is the spout. It is just too small, so you have to be careful when pouring the coffee.

Another thing related to the design of this coffee maker is its appearance. And we can tell you, this unit looks striking. Better yet, it comes in five colors to choose from – Stainless steel, White, Copper, Silver and Black steel. Whichever one you opt for, this coffee maker will surely add a modern touch to your countertop.

Taste

As you probably noticed, this unit is far from cheap. But, you get what you pay for. So, this coffee maker brews the perfect coffee (and it does that consistently). You can choose between Bold and Regular strength, both of which will give you the impeccable taste and texture.

Capacity

Now, what makes this unit stand out from the crowd is its large capacity. Most coffee makers have a 12-cup capacity, but not this one. Cuisinart DCC-3200 is capable of brewing up to 14 cups of coffee. Because of that, it is not surprising that this unit is used in big households and small offices. We are sure that you must be thinking “But, what if I want to make coffee only for me?” Don’t worry, the manufacturer thought of that too. Namely, there is this clever 1-4 cup setting that, well, gives you up to four cups of coffee. What’s more, there is a temperature control, so your coffee will be warm just how you like it. The carafe ensures your coffee stays hot even after a few hours. This is great if you don’t want to bother with making the coffee every couple of hours. And it is also useful if you are waiting for your friend to come over. You just need to grab the carafe and pour in the perfectly warm coffee. How simple is that?

Ease of use

Besides the well-built design, perfect taste, AND a large capacity, this coffee maker is also easy to use. In case you have never before used a coffee machine, don’t worry about that. With an easy-to-read display and a fully automatic control panel, you will use this coffee maker as a pro after a few times. It is easy to program, so making the coffee of your choice will be a piece of cake.

There is also an auto off feature, so you won’t have to think whether you left the coffee maker on. This feature comes in useful if many people use the coffee maker, as there are great chances that someone won’t turn off the unit. Luckily, that problem won’t happen with this coffee maker.

Cleaning

When it comes to cleaning, this unit is great. Thanks to the self-cleaning feature, the coffee maker’s performance won’t be decreased over time. Sure, you have to clean it every once in a while, in order to prevent scale and minerals build up. But the self-cleaning feature greatly contributes to durability and spotlessness of this unit. The exterior of the coffee maker is also easy to keep clean; you just need to wipe it with a wet cloth every day.

Price


Since this unit comes with many great features, is durable, and looks modern, its higher price doesn’t come as a surprise. Even though we believe the high price doesn’t automatically mean a great quality, we are glad this unit justifies its price. Because of
that, this coffee maker is worth your money.
