Cuisinart Coffee on Demand Coffee Maker

Who Needs the Cuisinart 12 Cup Coffee Maker?

Sometimes it’s easier to brew one cup of coffee at a time instead of waiting for a full pot to brew. The Cuisinart Coffee on Demand Coffee Maker is designed for people who don’t have enough time to brew an entire carafe of coffee in the morning. While this coffee maker is great for people on the go, it’s also good for someone who lives alone and doesn’t need to brew an entire pot of coffee in the morning.

However, the water reservoir in the Cuisinart DCC-2000 can be used to make up to 12 cups of coffee, so this is a great device to have on the office kitchen counter. Employees can quickly grab a cup of coffee and go back to work without waiting or having to clean the coffee maker.

The Cuisinart Coffee on Demand Coffee Maker puts the environmentally-conscious at ease. Other single serve coffee makers like the ones made by Keurig and Nespresso usually use containers that are eventually tossed into a landfill. With the Cuisinart 12 cup coffee maker, you can put your coffee grounds into the machine’s filter and not worry about any wildlife being negatively impacted by your morning routine.

I’ve dropped and broken a ludicrous number of cups and bowls because it was too early in the morning for me to function (although I can’t discount my natural skills in clumsiness). If you or your family are prone to breaking things, eliminating the need to use a glass carafe in the morning could benefit everyone.

Cuisinart DCC-2000 Features

The Cuisinart coffee maker can be programmed to dispense one cup of coffee at a time and the water reservoir can be used to fill up to 12 cups

Even though you’ll eventually need to clean out the inside of the Cuisinart Coffee on Demand Coffee Maker, it comes with a self-clean feature that can save you some time on the weekends.

A 24-hour advance brew start means you can wake up to the aroma of fresh coffee. (If only Michael Scott’s George Foreman grill had this feature.)

As an added bonus, you can be assured that your Cuisinart Coffee on Demand Coffee Maker will look good sitting next to your other kitchen appliances because it won the Chicago Athenaeum’s Good Design award in the “Household Products” category.

Amazon reviews gave this Cuisinart coffee maker 3.3/5 stars. Reviews seem to be on either end of the spectrum since many people loved it while others were frustrated with the machine’s issues regarding condensation buildup and cleanup. Perhaps buying from a store with a great return policy is best.
