Cuisinart does not make the sexiest, coolest or otherwise hippest coffee production machines on the market. The Cuisinart DCC-1100BK 12-Cup Programmable Coffeemaker doesn’t do pour-over, Chemex, or even function as a cold brew coffee maker, but whatever it lacks in all those areas it more than makes up for in stone cold reliability and convenience. Throw some of your favorite grounds from the local coffee shop in a Cuisinart Burr Grinder, put them in this discounted coffeemaker, wait a few minutes and bask in the productivity you’re sure to experience once the pot is ready. In addition to featuring a 12-cup carafe with ergonomic handle, dripless spout and knuckle guard, this coffeemaker also has 24-hour programmability, 1 – 4 cup settings, brew pause (so you can get a cup when you can’t wait), self-cleaning, 60-second reset and everything else you could ever hope to find in an otherwise basic coffeemaker. In other words, if you want to make more than a single cup at a time without much emotional investment, this is the coffeemaker for you.
