Cuisinart DCC 1100
Purchased it from Bed Bath Beyond approximately 18 months ago. Was very pleased with it UNTIL Monday, November 29, 2010. After the coffee finished brewing, I heard this cracking sound and the burner was getting red hot. At first glance, I thought the pot had turned itself off, but the burner was beginning to spark. I quickly unplugged it. Had I been in another part of the house, it would have caught my cabinets on fire.
After this incident I immediately went on line in search of similiar problems and found my story told over and over again. This product should be RECALLED!!!
