Product Description

Color: Silver

With its sleek, modern look and user-friendly control panel, this extra-large-capacity coffeemaker brews up to 14 cups (5 ounces each) of fresh and flavorful coffee at a time. The fully automatic unit can be programmed up to 24 hours in advance for "wake up" coffee or to have a pot ready and waiting to serve with dessert--no need to get up from the table half way through dinner. For those eager to start their day, the machine's brew-pause function allows for pouring a quick cup midbrew--simply remove the carafe to pause the flow of coffee and replace it to continue the brewing cycle. Speaking of, the included glass carafe offers measuring marks up the side, an ergonomic stay-cool handle with a knuckle guard and a strip of stainless-steel accenting, and a drip-free spout for graceful pouring. The coffeemaker also provides an easy-view water-level window; a 1- to 4-cup setting; regular and bold flavor-strength settings; built-in 60-second memory in case the power goes out; an adjustable heater plate with high, medium, and low temperature settings; a self-clean function; and 0- to 4-hour automatic shut-off for safety and peace of mind. A permanent Gold Tone filter that eliminates messy paper filters, a charcoal water filter for improved flavor, and a handy instruction book come included. The coffeemaker measures approximately 11 by 9-3/5 by 16-1/5 inches and carries a three-year limited warranty.

From the Manufacturer

The Cuisinart DCC-2600 14-Cup Programmable Coffeemaker

The Quest for a Perfect Cup of Coffee

It is generally agreed that there are four basic elements critical to the perfect cup:

Water and Coffee Filters
Water & Coffee Filters

Element 1. Water:
Coffee is 98% water. Often overlooked, the quality of the water is as important as the quality of the coffee. A good rule of thumb is that if your water doesn’t taste good from the tap, it won’t taste any better in your coffee. That’s why Cuisinart has added a water filter to the 14-Cup Programmable Coffeemaker. The charcoal water filter removes chlorine, bad tastes and odors, for the purest cup of coffee every time.

Element 2. Coffee:
While the bulk of the liquid is water, all of the flavor should be from the coffee. To achieve the same great quality of coffee you receive at a coffee bar, you need to use the same quality beans. Buy the beans fresh and whole, only about a two weeks’ supply at a time for maximum freshness. Once the coffee bean is broken, its flavor degrades very quickly. If it is not practical to buy small supplies, we recommend you separate larger amounts of beans into one to two week portions immediately after purchase, and freeze them in airtight containers. The best way to maximize freshness is to minimize exposure to air, light and moisture. So, once removed from the freezer, beans should be maintained in a sealed container at room temperature, since damaging condensation occurs every time the beans are removed from the freezer or refrigerator. Note that some coffee experts advise against freezing dark-roast beans, because freezing can cause the oils to coagulate. Other experts disagree. We suggest you experiment and decide yourself.

The Perfect Cup of Coffee
The Perfect Cup of Coffee

Element 3. Grind:
The grind of the coffee is critical for proper flavor extraction. If the grind is too fine, over extraction and bitterness will result. Too fine a grind may also clog the filter. If the grind is too coarse, the water will pass through too quickly and the desired flavors will not be extracted. A medium-fine grind is recommended.

Element 4. Proportion:
Coffee that is too strong or too weak is always a disappointment. Add 1 level scoop of ground coffee per cup and adjust the amount according to taste. Note: the maximum capacity for ground coffee is 17 tablespoons for the 12-cup coffeemaker. Exceeding this amount may cause overflow if the coffee is too finely ground.

Features and Benefits

  1. Reservoir Cover: Flips back for easy filling.
  2. Water Reservoir with Water Level Indicator Window: Open the reservoir cover by lifting it up. Pour in the desired amount of water using the water level indicator located at the side of the coffeemaker window.
  3. Showerhead: Distributes water evenly over coffee, reducing temperature loss as water passes through grounds.
  4. Charcoal Water Filter: Charcoal water filter eliminates chlorine, calcium and bad tastes or odors from tap water. Cuisinart recommends changing the water filter every 60 days or 60 uses – or more often if you have hard water.
  5. Filter Basket: Holds a #4 paper filter or a permanent filter.
  6. Control Panel:
  7. DCC-2600 Controls
    LCD & Controls
    1. On/Off Button, Clock display, Hour and Minute Buttons.
    2. Strength Selector: Regular and Bold buttons let you choose the intensity of coffee flavor you prefer.
    3. Carafe Temperature Knob: For controlling the temperature of the coffee after brewing. There are three temperature settings high, medium and low.
    4. 1- to 4-Cup Setting: The 1- to 4-cup setting button is used when you make small amounts of coffee. Normal coffeemakers will produce a colder batch of coffee when smaller amounts are made, because the heater doesn’t have enough time to properly ‘warm up’ to heat a small amount. The 1- to 4-cup setting basically ‘double heats’ the water, making your smaller amounts as piping hot as a full pot would be. To use simply press the 1- to 4-cup button on the control panel after turning on the unit.
    5. Self-Clean Setting: Tells you when it’s time to clean your coffeemaker. Remove built-up calcification from the water reservoir, to help extend the life of your coffeemaker.
  8. Function Knob: Includes Program, Auto On, Auto Off, Brew, Clock and Audible Tone: Coffeemaker can be programmable to automatically start brewing up to 24 hours in advance and can be programmed to shut off up to 4 hours after brewing. The Audible Tone signals the end of the brew cycle with five beeps (coffee will continue to stream from the filter for a few seconds after the tone).
  9. Brew Pause: Stops flow of coffee from basket when carafe is removed (30 seconds max) from the heater plate, so a cup can be poured in mid-brew. Since the flavor extraction rate varies during the brew cycle, we recommend allowing the brewing cycle to finish before pouring the coffee. The coffee brewed at the beginning of the cycle has a flavor profile which is very different from the flavor at the end of the cycle. Once the coffee has finished brewing, stir it before serving to blend the flavors. The coffee at the bottom of the carafe will be somewhat stronger than the coffee at the top.
  10. Carafe: The easy pour, no drip 14-cup glass carafe has an ergonomic handle and brewed coffee markings for two to fourteen cups.
  11. Adjustable Heater Plate: Allows you to keep brewed coffee at desired temperature. Scratch resistant with black, nonstick coating.
  12. Cord Storage
  13. Power Loss Backup System: One minute protection in case a breaker trips, the unit is unplugged, or the power fails. It holds all programmed information, including time of day, auto on time and auto off time.
  14. Measuring Scoop

Best coffee maker I've ever owned!
J. A. Lee
And the regular/bold setting is great as we like stronger coffee and there is a difference using the bold setting.
It is very easy to operate and makes great tasting coffee.

This is a replacement for my old Cuisinart coffee maker which I had for about six years or so (the predecessor to this model). I loved my old one even with some of the little quirks it had. It beat out any Braun or Krupp pot which I had ever owned. This new updated model is a winner. All of the small annoyances have been solved, such as the small fill tank opening, the dripping cover that leaked back into the fill tank, and finally, thank you Cuisinart people, a water level guide on the outside of the unit. The front knobs on the front are now also easier to see and use. As my other Cuisinart did, it brews superior coffee and quickly. I find it takes about one minute per cup... 12 minutes for twelve cups, not bad at all. Yes, the unit does make some clicking and popping noises when it is new, so did my old one. But that goes away in time as the unit gets "broken in". I do not think you can find a better coffee maker on the market.

We take coffee very seriously in my house and when our old Cuisinart broke I wasn't sure I wanted another. But they fixed the design problems (hard to pour the water without spilling, no visible water gauge) and it makes great coffee. Highly recommend it.

The title says it all. I've had 3 Cuisinart coffee makers the last 3 years, 1 thermal and 2 of these. After about a year using twice a day I start to find water on my counter top. Consumer Reports and Amazon customers love these and I did too until the leaks started. I didn't write a review before because I figured the leaking was just a fluke and maybe it is but after 3 go rounds I doubt it. I didn't read all the other reviews to see if anyone else had experienced this. Please understand I'm a retired senior citizen and have no axe to grind but I wanted to point out my experience with an otherwise excellent product.

It takes a lot to give up a Bunn, or in our case three Bunn home brewers, all the same model.

But we finally got fed up with (1) burning out their cheap temperature controls, (2) losing the quick heating function, (3) the carafe warmer that has one temperature and it's too hot, and (4) the substantial 24/365 power drain keeping that water tank always close to 200 degrees.

18 years of inconvenient great coffee was enough.

After reading hundreds of reviews we chose the DCC-2600 at Amazon. So far, a great machine, but built to a price. For example, the power cord is just adequate enough for the wattage, and it's only 2 feet long! The User Manual taradiddles about why it's too short. The Bunn cord is 4 feet, and can handle twice the wattage.

The settings for the clock and the automatic On/Off feature will be lost if the machine is without electric power longer than one minute. For a few pennies per machine they could have held the memory for hours. My bedside Zenith clock radio from the 1970s (maybe 60s) holds its settings for several days when power is down, and without a battery back-up.

That was when Zenith was made by Zenith, but their legendary quality bankrupted the company. Their venerable name was found to be the 8th most recognized brand in the world, so the name "Zenith" was auctioned to Asia. The quality died in the bankruptcy, as quality does.

Our first pot of DCC-2600 coffee used the "gold" filter Cuisinart supplies, rather than paper, and the result was excellent. We'll stick with the metal filter. We grind our beans medium-fine on a commercial Ditting coffee grinder and this is perfect for the Cuisinart's gold filter.

Learning to use the various features of the pot is easy, but for me only 98% intuitive.

Who in the world would have a coffee pot as a best friend? When you make and drink 5 to 7 pots of coffee a day you need a best friend. You need a friend who is there for you anytime you need one and that friend has to be consistent; i.e., one good pot after another. The DCC-2600 is my new best friend. In a short time it has performed better than its older cousin, the DCC-1200. The DCC-122 is still right up there with the DCC-2600; however, I wanted a 14 cupper and it is perfect.

The coffee tastes the same: great. It still takes about one minute per cup. That is perhaps a tad too much time but I don't care. I can always do something else while it is brewing. After all, a super cup of coffee is worth waiting a few minutes. I can always set the timer and have it ready when I awaken. The setting process is still simple enough for me to do. I really like being able to see the plain water display on the outside instead of having to strain and look over the top of the pot. That's a nice enhancement just as it the anti-drip change Cuisinart made.

I'm not an interior designer; however, I like the changes made to the outside appearances of this pot compared to the DCC-1200. I just looks better to me. The included gold filter is a nice touch and its inclusion should be a constant; however, I still prefer the cheap, paper filters. Paper filters are easier to clean up from than the gold filter. That is the only reason for my statement.

Best friends do not let you down and this pot pumps coffee without one retort. It works well and performs the job with vigor.
