The Cuisinart DCC-1000 is the height of contemporary design, and its performance is pure Cuisinart. Sleekly molded around our new contoured carafe, this stunning coffeemaker is engineered to produce 1 to 12 cups of exceptionally fresh and flavorful coffee. A Programmable Brew Time feature wakes you with the wonderful smell of fresh coffee, and automatically turns the coffeemaker off when you want it off. There's simply no better way to start your day. Delicious coffee, yours from Cuisinart.
Programmable for automatically brewing "wake-up" coffee at a selected time, this coffeemaker brews up to 12 cups. Other features include a spray head that distributes water evenly through the ground coffee; a glass carafe with a stylish stainless-steel band; a scratch-resistant nonstick warming plate; cord storage in the rear (push in the cord to conceal it); a window that shows the water level; and a pause function for a midbrew pour when the carafe is removed. For peace of mind, you can program the warming plate to shut off at a specified time (up to four hours) after brewing. Clad in gleaming black plastic that easily wipes clean, the coffeemaker measures 13-3/4 inches high, 8 inches wide, and 11 inches deep (including the carafe handle), and carries a three-year warranty against defects. --Fred Brack
