Cuisinart DCC-1100 Coffee Maker Review

Welcome to the Cuisinart DCC-1100 coffee maker review. Cuisinart makes coffee makers in abundance at differing price points to suit all tastes. I consider the Cuisinart DCC-1100 to be a coffee machine that is mid range in price but jam packed in features. Similarly to the Cuisinart DCC-1200, the DCC 1100 has many of the same features including being fully programmable.

If you are looking for a reasonably priced 12 cup programmable coffee maker you can’t get much better than the Cuisinart DCC 1100. And in this Cuisinart DCC-1100 review I’ll explain why. The first thing I really love about this machine is its automatic features and easy to use interface. In fact, I won’t buy a coffee maker that isn’t at the very least automatic. It’s crucial to starting my day off right in the morning. Nothing beats waking up to a nice fresh cup of coffee first thing.

So the fully programmable features of the DCC-1100 are very cool and handy and the user interface is intuitive and easy to use. But a very small aesthetic, but pleasing aesthetic that sets this machine apart from it’s peers is that it is available as a pink coffee maker. In fact you have your choice of black, white or pink. For the young ladies out there, this is something you’ve gotta see. It’s very cool.

Here are just some of the neat features of the Cuisinart DCC-1100 12 cup programmable coffee maker:

  • 24 hour fully programmable
  • Carafe has knuckle guard, dripless spout and ergonomic handle
  • Brew as little as 1 to 4 cups and includes brew-pause feature
  • Permanent gold tone coffee filter and charcoal water filter included
  • Industry leading 3 year warranty

There are a couple of features that you don’t get with the Cuisinart DCC 1100 coffee machine that you do get on the Cuisinart DCC-1200 and Cuisinart DCC-2600. Firstly, it’s not a thermal coffee maker like the DCC-2600 and secondly it doesn’t have heat plate temperature settings like the DCC-1200. But at this price point, I’m not complaining. This is one of the great Cuisinart coffee makers, and in pink, well, your daughter, wife or girlfriend will be just… tickled pink 🙂

Here’s what one satisfied customer had to say about the Cuisinart DCC-1100 pink coffee machine:

My name is Ryan, and I’m a coffee addict… I must say, this is by far the best machine I’ve ever owned. This machine is top notch for the price, hands down! I had this thing programmed within about 5 minutes. I had no problem understanding the directions. – Ryan S.
