I fail to understand how the Cuisinart DCC-1200 continues to rank so well in the ratings. We had ours less than a year and it burned up. The heating element caught fire. It makes for a lovely aroma first thing in the morning. The faulty element was the last in a number of issues we had with the coffee maker. The water filter was problematic and we eventually stopped using it. Our ground coffee often overflowed into the coffee carafe and positioning of the carafe must be perfect in order for the brewed coffee to enter the carafe.
