Welcome to the best Cuisinart DTC-975 review. Well, at least I hope it’s the best. Nevertheless, I’ll give you my honest impression of the Cuisinart DTC-975 so that you can make an informed decision if you want to let this little chap come home with you. The Cuisinart DTC 975 is a thermal carafe fully programmable coffee maker made by the well known Cuisinart brand. In fact, this is one of the largest personal or home thermal carafes on the market.
Most thermal carafe drip brew coffee makers if you take a look around at the stores are 10 cup thermal carafes. The DTC-975 on the other hand is slightly bigger but nonetheless more useful 12 cup thermal carafe coffee maker. This makes a difference if you have a few people over. For some reason, coffee maker manufacturers think that a cup is 5 or 6 ounces, so you’re only getting around 60 ounces or so of coffee. Now most of us, including my grandmother, enjoy coffee in cups that are at least 12 ounces and heading towards 16 ounce mugs. So that’s only around 4 to 6 “real life” cups of coffee.
So when looking for a thermal carafe it can be well worth your while to go for the DTC 975 with 12 cups rather than a smaller 10 cup carafe coffee maker. I am also a fan of thermal carafes as they keep your coffee fresh without burning it as many of the coffee hot plates will do after around a half hour or so. This thermal carafe coffee machine by Cuisinart is available in either white or black accents so it will suit most homes.
Here are some of the features of the Cuisinart DTC-975BKN:
- Fully automatic coffee maker with 24 hour programmability
- Cuisinart’s trusty brew through and pour through lid
- Stainless steel thermal carafe that is double walled insulated
- Instruction book as well as #4 paper filter and kit included
- Cuisinart’s reliable 3 year warranty
The brew through and pour through lid as mentioned above is a terrific feature that Cuisinart now offers on most of their coffee machines. Once the lid has been attached to the thermal coffee carafe, you can start brewing right away and then when brewing is complete you can pour without having to adjust the lid at all. It also helps keep out the cool room air, thus helping keep your coffee fresher as well as allowing you enjoy hot coffee for up to 12 hours upon completion of the brew cycle.
