    I have a perfectly good Cuisinart DCC-1200, but after spotting the 2000 at a local store I couldn’t stop fiddling with the floor model. Well, my wife was lurking as I was fiddling and with my birthday coming up – and my affinity for coffee – she thought she’d found the perfect gift. Boy was she was right!

    Now let’s be honest, carafe-less designs have been around forever – Farberware’s stainless steel coffee pots are staples in offices and at parties – they just haven’t been this much fun. I’m not going to repeat everything that’s already been written, but suffice to say the 2000 is a unique coffee maker. Does it make coffee better than my 1200 did? No, not really. But it does keep it hot longer, without the bitter, burnt taste that would often accompany the coffee from my 1200 when left on the warming plate for over 30 minutes. I normally have two cups every morning (not the puny 5-ounce “cups” that every coffee maker seems to think is the norm for whatever reason), but I’ve found myself having about three (maybe not a good thing?) since getting the 2000 because that third cup, about 1-1/2 hours later still tastes great. That wasn’t happening with the 1200. Sometimes I’d try the third cup, but the burnt carafe taste made it unfortunate.

    One of the complaints I’m reading here is that you need a separate container to fill the 2000. I can’t be the only owner that owns a Pyrex 2-cup (or more) measuring cup can I? I just fill it up once, twice – gasp! – three times and pour it in while watching the water level on the side. Honestly, it’s not that hard. Cleaning is no different from any model with a carafe. But instead of washing the outer carafe you remove the inner “carafe” to rinse it out or give it a thorough cleaning. That’s the only difference. The coffee gauge is kind of silly and inaccurate and I rarely ever look at it, but it adds to the allure of the 2000.

    I’ll be keeping my 1200 at the ready for my sister to use when she comes over to make her dreadful flavored coffees so they don’t contaminate my new toy. But until the next great design advance comes along to which I can’t say “no,” I’ll be enjoying the 2000 to the fullest. It’s neat, it’s fun and it makes great coffee.

    This is really a great coffee maker. The negative reviews all seem to be fixated on the fact that you have to pour water into the reservoir, and the unit doesn’t come with a container for this purpose!! Is Cuisinart the Devil? Should I call my lawyer and file a class action suit? What is wrong with people today? Is is really that difficult to procure a plastic pitcher of some sort, fill it with water and then transfer that water into the coffee maker? I think not, and I do it one or two time a day myself without covering my kitchen counters with water. If you are not able to pour water from a pitcher into the reservoir of a coffee machine, I really do not think that you should be trusted with a hot cup of coffee either.
    The coffee tastes great, never burnt. It is easy to program and clean and does not take up a whole lot of room. It also comes with one of those re-usable, permanent gold filters which many companies sell separately for about $20. My girlfriend can operate this thing easily, and she has a hard time figuring out the remote control for the TV. If she can program this unit, so can you. As to the other negative comments I have read which describe a powerless, malfunctioning unit, I have had no problems whatsoever with mine. Hope this review was useful, thanks for reading it.
