After going through a new coffee pot almost every year, it was time to invest in one that would last longer than that. Cuisinart is a trusty brand so I decided to invest in the Cuisinart DTC-975BKN 12-Cup Coffee Maker which was stated as the top rated coffee makers 2017. It wasn’t cheap, but it was far from expensive at $98.00. Since using the Cuisinart DTC-975BKN 12-Cup Coffee Maker, I have been more than satisfied with the results of this coffee maker just like I am with other Cuisinart products. The outside part of the Cuisinart DTC-975BKN 12-Cup Coffee Maker does not get hot or too warm. Its stainless steel design is safe to sit on the dinner table around the other food during breakfast. I really like that I don’t have to get up several times for my second or third cup interrupting everyone else’s breakfast. One still must be careful as with any other tall pitcher of liquid which can still be accidentally tipped over. That will never happen to me because I usually drink my first two cups from the Cuisinart DTC-975BKN 12-Cup Coffee Maker before bringing it to the table.
The internet lists people’s top problem with the Cuisinart DTC-975BKN 12-Cup Coffee Maker as being the lid that screws on the carafe. The only way there will be problems when screwing lid on occurs when you don’t pay attention while twisting it on. I have got the threads cross-threaded once just like any other product that has a screw-on lid but that only says to pay attention to what you are doing. So, those complaints about the Cuisinart DTC-975BKN 12-Cup Coffee Maker are simply petty.
A strong five beeps from the Cuisinart DTC-975BKN 12-Cup Coffee Maker signals that the coffee is ready so you can come get it while it’s hot. Other coffee makers only give off that weak sound of the last few drips of coffee coming out that you will have to listen for. The Cuisinart DTC-975BKN 12-Cup Coffee Maker won’t let you let your coffee be anything past hot because the beeps are loud enough to hear over other noises and several rooms away.
To me over the last few years, the most important thing to get my day started is that hot morning cup of coffee. As long as I have the Cuisinart DTC-975BKN 12-Cup Coffee Maker, I am sure to have it. This unit is easy to operate in the morning when I can barely see and it makes very good coffee. That is all I need and want from the Cuisinart DTC-975BKN 12-Cup Coffee Maker to get me going, and that’s what it delivers.
