Among all the coffee makers that I have owned, I like this Cuisinart DTC-975 Coffee Maker most. Equipped with a thermal carafe, this machine can keep my coffee hot for hours. I tried other thermal carafe makers, but when the brewing completes, the coffee wouldn’t be hot enough. This machine features a timer so it can brew automatically.

Cuisinart is really a good coffee maker. With the high quality of stainless thermos carafe, it can bring fresh and hot coffee for you whenever you want. I don’t like the coffee just sit in a glass carafe and “bake” for hours. But Cuisinart can make me satisfy. Just needs a bit of electricity, it can help you to warm the coffee.
