I bought the Cuisinart Brew Central DCC-1200 12 Cups Coffee Maker November 14, 2010 from Amazon for $65.25. I have used it approximately 5 times/week. Yesterday, during the brewing process, I heard unusual sounds (gurgling, cracking, hissing) coming from the machine. When I checked it, I found smoke coming from the hot plate. I lifted the caraft (the coffee was actually boiling) and found the front half of the hot plate bright red. I immediately unplugged the unit, while smoke began to pour out from the hot plate and there was a stong burning plastic smell. I called Cuisinart for a refund. They refused and wanted to send me a replacement. Obviously, I was not interested. This would have led to kitchen fire if I had not been in the kitchen at this time. Please do not buy this product. From research on the internet, this is becoming a common complaint about this product and Cuisinart is not standing behind this product.
