  • The Cuisinart Coffee Bar Coffeemaker DCC-270 Is For Those Serious About Their Coffee

    May 25, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Coffee Bar Flavor System, Coffee Temperature Monitor, Self-Cleaning
    Cons: A 12-cup coffee maker may not be for everyone

    Summary: My husband has been on a coffee adventure for the past 6-months. He has gone from those specialty coffee's in those little expensive tins to instant, to finally, brewed coffee. He did not need to have a coffee-maker for those first trials with ... read more

  • The Cuisinart DCC-270 makes 1) Coffee & 2) BIG MESSES & damage!

    Oct 28, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: It allows precise control & can make morning coffee before the user wakes up.
    Cons: Periodic, massive coffee spills & subsequent property damage.

    Summary: This coffee maker was as "gift". It is, however, a curse. The carafe pushes on the end of a curved piece of plastic, which, in turn, lowers a hinged, surf-board shaped plastic piece which is about 2˝" long. In the middle of that plastic piece is a ... read more

    Pros: Programmable, durable, easy to clean
    Cons: gets dirty easily!

    Summary: This is my (somewhat late- sorry!) submission to Sleeper54’s Lean and Mean Write-Off. The challenge: write a review of something using no more than 666 words. Eek! Here goes: I received a Cuisinart Coffee Bar Automatic 12-Cup ... read more

    Pros: Great tasting coffee from freshly ground beans, sleek good looks
    Cons: a little more trouble to clean

    Summary: I've had a lot of coffee makers over the years, but this one has become my favorite. Not only is it a great looking machine, but this Cuisinart allows you to make coffee using either whole bean (with the built in grinder) or ground coffee. As with most ... read more

    Pros: good coffee, gold filter
    Cons: Flimsy construction, odd features

    Summary: I have had the Cuisinart DCC-270 for well over a year now. I got it as a Christmas gift in place of on old 6 cup generic maker. It has a basic timer that is easy to set and use. It comes with a gold filter(came with a pack of paper filters also). ... read more

    Pros: Nice design
    Cons: A real messy pot of coffee

    Summary: We drink lots of coffee. We have friends who come by for coffee. Consequently, we have gone through many coffee pots in 30 years. I saw this at Costco, and even though it was expensive ($69.00) I had confidence that it would last for a while. Wrong! ... read more

    Pros: pause&serve; timer
    Cons: can be drippy and leaky

    Summary: This is my second Cuisinart coffee maker. I would say they are decent little machines. When my first machine quit, I was happy to find this one at Costco. We enjoy the coffee the Cuisinart machines brew. The timer is easy to set and reset; the ... read more

    Pros: Makes good coffee, easy to clean and inexpensive
    Cons: Little explanation in instructions on how to make better coffee

    Summary: I bought this coffeemaker after looking at epinions and seeing that it had a very high rating. Overall, I feel that I got great value for my money with a couple of reservations (see below). This machine is not only stylish but extremely easy ... read more

    Pros: good looking, easily programmed
    Cons: produces a weak tasting cup of coffee

    Summary: This is a nice looking, easy to use appliance, but our Krups coffeemaker made a better tasting cup of coffee. After the old Krups gave out after many years, I was looking to purchase a coffeemaker with a timer feature & decided on Cuisinart because ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: price
    Cons: not well constructed

    Summary: I purchased this unit after my KRUPS died after 4 years of making 3 to 4 pots a day. The Cuisinart was not very well constructed ( flimsy swivel out basket), the timer did not work properly and it leaked water from the reservoir. The basket also caught ... read more

    Pros: Makes good coffee, keeps it hot
    Cons: Not very durable, messy

    Summary: We bought our coffee maker more than a year ago, and are very satisfied with the quality of the coffee. I especially like the fact that you can turn up the temperature on the warming tray. On the down side, my husband finds it difficult to ... read more

    Pros: beautiful
    Cons: stopped working

    Summary: I received this coffeemaker as a free gift for joining a coffee mail service. I was amazed at the fact that I got such a nice free gift, but I remember that my mother always said, "You get what you pay for". That certainly holds true in this ... read more

    Pros: Makes a great cup of coffee
    Cons: measuring system a little different

    Summary: Let me start off by saying we paid nowhere near the price I see listed here. We purchased our machine for about $35.00 at our local Sam's Club. If I had paid $80.00, I would have expected to have my coffee served to me in bed! That being said, I ... read more

    Summary: I bought this coffee maker because of the Cuisinart name and reputation. It was 12-cup Automatic Drip Coffee Maker. I had tried just about all of the other brands (Mr. Coffee, West Bend, etc.) and all of them did not keep the coffee hot enough for ... read more
