Cuisinart introduces coffee without the carafe! The Coffee on demand coffeemaker has a simple "press to serve" lever that delivers up to 12 cups of hot coffee, cup by cup, from a double wall reservoir. Our exclusive Coffee gauge on the front of the unit counts down the cups remaining. With 24-hour programmability, auto shutoff, professional brushed metal housing, and clean, contemporary styling, this is one of the easiest-and almost elegant- coffeemakers on the market.

I like pros/cons lists, so here goes:
-makes EXCELLENT hot(!) coffee
-auto shutoff (you can set for 1-4 hours)
-programmable auto on with a nice green light indicator
-brewing light with a nice red indicator
-coffee maker beeps when it finishes brewing or when it is about to shut off
-keeps coffee hot but not burnt while it is on
-can dispense coffee without making a mess while it is still brewing(!) possibly best feature
-has an inexpensive replaceable charcoal filter
-has an analog dial gauge for coffee level
-looks cool siting on the counter
-lever to disperse coffee feels well made and coffee never leaks
-filing water reservoir without spilling take practice
(using a water bottle makes it MUCH more easy)
-taller than normal travel mugs do not fit (you can remove the
bottom tray and there is a cutout to fit a normal size travel mug)
-cleaning the coffee reservoir is not easy until you get the hang
of it (there is a hole you pour the extra coffee/water out of)
-emptying the coffee grinds is not easy until you get the hang of it
(for whatever the reason if you don't hold it right, the filter will
get caught on the handle as it comes out and make a mess)
-hard to gauge how much coffee is left when needle is about 1/4 or less
(still shows about 1/8 when empty)
-brushed stainless is actually plastic (however it does look real)
Overall this is a solid 4.5 star coffee maker, could be 5 stars IF it where a little more easy to fill and clean. Others have complained about it breaking before or around 1-yr of use, so far we have had ours about 8mo and it works perfect. I would probably purchase one again and have already recommended it to friends and family members.
I haven't had a problem filling the coffee maker. I have it to the left of my sink and I use the sink sprayer to fill it. That works perfectly because the water gauge is on the right side of the machine and I can see how much water I'm putting in. I do have to pull it out from under the upper cabinet because the lid can't be opened unless I do, but that's just not an issue for me.
Cuisinart paid to ship the new one to me, but I had to pay $31.00 to ship back the old one through the USPS who now charges according to box sizes and NOT weight. The box weighed 11 pounds and I had to pay for 21 pounds because of the size of the box. Ridiculous. So far, I've paid $131.00 for this Coffee on Demand. I just hope I have better luck with the new one because I am not spending any more money on this coffee maker no matter how much I love the looks, convenience and good tasting coffee.
The condensation from the lid running down the back of the unit is very annoying, but if the machine continues to work, I'll put up with the mess because that's how much I LOVE the looks, convenience and taste of the coffee. Whoever designed this Coffee on Demand with a dripping lid, should be fired. Where's quality control? You can't tell me that Cuisinart never tested this machine before it was sent to be manufactured. They had to know about the lid problem. How could they not? It's a very, very stupid design. And there is obviously a defect in the electronics of this coffee maker. Cuisinart needs to either fix the problems or discontinue their "Best Selling coffee maker"....that is a quote from the Customer Service rep I spoke to. They must be making these things for dirt cheap if they can afford to replace thousands of them under their warranty.
As much as I love the looks, convenience of no carafe and the taste of the coffee, I cannot recommend this coffee maker with a clear conscience...which saddens me because it COULD BE the best thing since sliced bread.
October 24, 2010 UPDATE:
The replacement coffee maker (from July 2009) just started leaking coffee all over the counter-top this week. I tried tightening the screws around the heat plate in the reservoir thinking that may be the cause of the leak, but it wasn't...still leaked coffee. I then tried thoroughly cleaning the little "plunger" on the dispenser thinking it may be leaking slowly because it wasn't sealing properly, but that didn't help either. The leak doesn't happen immediately, but does if the coffee is sitting in the reservoir for a few hours, which is always the case around here. The leak has to be coming from either of those two areas or there's a crack it in that I don't see.
I called customer service today and she said it sounds like the reservoir needs to be replaced and they're sending out a replacement at NO CHARGE and we are to just throw out the old reservoir. If I didn't love the coffee so much, I would just toss this when it goes out, but I will probably get another year out of this coffee maker and if I do, I'm considering buying another one just because of the taste of the coffee and the convenience of having no carafe to deal with. I'm spoiled! I love the looks of this too. It's really sharp looking. I do believe Hamilton Beach makes a dispensing coffee maker too. I may check it out and switch. We'll see. I'm hoping that by the time I will need to replace this Cuisinart DCC-2000, they will have perfected it and fixed all the little glitches in it. We can only hope because I really do like the looks and the coffee...and they DO stand behind their warranty.
ANOTHER UPDATE February 8, 2011:
I doubt than many people will ever read this far into all the reviews posted here, but just in case some do:
The Coffee On Demand died this morning....for a few hours until it cooled off. The clock needs to be set every day and it may or may not brew for a preset time in the morning. We can't program the auto off anymore. I made our coffee this morning and about 10 minutes after I poured my first cup, the machine shut off and wouldn't turn back on. I unplugged it and plugged it back in to reset it, but it was dead. Hours later I plugged it back in and it worked. Right now I am in the process of running vinegar water through it (twice) hoping that will help. It brewed through the 2 vinegar cycles and I'm on my 2nd clean water rinse and it's still brewing! I will let it sit for an hour or so after this last rinse cycle to see if it shuts off on me. We shall see.
I'll update again if there's anymore issues. I know the vinegar cleaning won't fix the electronics as far as the clock/programming goes, but if I can just keep brewing my coffee, I will be happy. I really don't want to give up on this coffeemaker! I LOVE IT. It makes the best coffee and it looks so great, but it REALLY needs to last longer than it does for $100.00. We more than likely will buy another one of these when this one dies. That's how much we all LOVE it. Three gluttons for punishment I guess. ;) This really is a true love/hate relationship here!
UPDATE March 22, 2011:
The On Demand DIED today and I'm putting it to rest in the garbage. I DID order another one because we LOVE the coffee and the fabulous design. IF anything should go wrong with the new one, I will post it in an new review.
Very easy to use, stylish design (mix of modern and retro look) and produces good coffee. I like the fact that you can program it...I typically don't, but have from time to time. It can hold the coffee inside so if you have company over, they can help themselves. Also can remove the bottom tray to get your travel mug in there for your ride to work.
Only negative is cleaning. You need to clean any coffeepot from time to time - but there are a lot of plastic areas that are tough to get to. What I will say is that you can't tell ours is 4+ years old so that says something (no staining on sides, etc) - and we are scrubby it clean daily.
Very happy with product. Would go to this brand again based on our experience.
