Cuisinart CHW-12 Coffee Maker Review

Cuisinart churns out a new coffee maker practically every day or so it seems 🙂 And today being no exception, welcome to the Cuisinart CHW-12 review. The CHW12 coffee maker from Cuisinart is a 12 cup fully programmable coffee maker that you can buy for a great discount at Amazon. But the one feature that I like above all else in the CHW-12 12 cup programmable coffee maker is its hot water system. This is separate from the main brewer. So if you like coffee and your wife likes tea, then everyone is happy.

This hot water system on this Cuisinart 12 cup coffee machine is very handy. By pushing down on a lever you can give yourself as much hot water as you need. It also offers a safety lock in case you have small children that like to get into everything. This will safely lock the hot water so it won’t pour if little hands are up to monkey business 🙂 The blue LED display is wonderfully pleasing aesthetically and it also indicates when you need to add hot water to the Cuisinart CHW12 hot water system.

As with most Cuisinart coffee makers the Cuisinart 12 cup coffee maker comes with its own gold tone permanent filter. You’ll be surprised at how handy this is even if you prefer to use paper filters. I’ve run out of paper filters before and had to use my permanent filter before. It’s a just-in-case lifesaver but also environmentally friendly. Considering the many features of this full programmable 12 cup Cuisinart drip brew coffee machine, it is a cheap coffee maker to be sure, but reliable in quality.

Here are just some of the many features of the Cuisinart CHW-12 coffee maker:

  • Hot water system for tea, cocoa, soups and many more applications
  • Fully automatic 24 hour programmability for waking up to fresh coffee
  • 3 temperature heat setting on the hot plate for no more burnt coffee
  • Simple and intuitive blue LED backlit display for ease of use
  • Removable drip tray so you can brew right into large travel mugs

Additionally, this 12 cup Cuisinart CHW-12 coffee maker offers a self clean feature and the ability to brew small amounts of coffee, so only if it is you in the house you can choose to brew 1 to 4 cups of coffee. No need to waste your 100 Kona beans that cost you an arm and a leg 😉 The Cuisinart coffee maker carafe is comfortable to hold even if you are have some arthritis and it offers a drip free spout that truly is drip free, not like some others.
